  1. Hey new friend, We are not professionals but we are here for each other as best we can. That "empty" feeling is the quintessential symptom of depression. Our goal here is to not leave anyone behind in their deep, dark, dangerous depression metaphorical "cave". Sounds like you really need some professional help if possible. Please keep posting your concerns and don't give up on yourself.
  2. We are not professionals but I believe we are never helpless confronting depression issues. I like to invoke clever metaphors to counteract mental problems. There is always a way to force a change in our thoughts to bring about a positive impact on our mental well being. A metaphor is a trick we play when we insist one thing IS something else when obviously it isn't. Metaphors only work when pretend, imagine and make believe them into existence. One example I try hard to make work is to metaphorically "anchor" myself outside my deep , dark depression "cave". Maybe this could help a little. Oscar
  3. One trick I employ sometimes is drop my inexhaustible supply of metaphorical bold boulders on intrusive and useless memories until they no longer bother me. I believe we are never helpless confronting depression issues. Clever and powerful metaphors or as I like to call them: "CLEVERful MEDaphors" are my way to counteract the debilitating effects of depression. Maybe this can help a little. Oscar
  4. Welcome Charles to our forum family. Glad you joined We are all here for each other. I firmly believe that we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. I am always trying to metaphorically anchor myself outside my deep, dark, dangerous depression cave. I experience depression as a natural formation / resource. Hope you find a supportive home with us. Oscar
  5. Very sorry to read about your concerns. I cannot comment on the antidepressants because I never used them. I can only relay my unique perspective on depression. My experience reveals depression to be a natural formation / resource. I don't believe we are helpless confronting Old Man Depression. I am a big believer in the power of clever and powerful metaphors or as I like to call them: "CLEVERFUL MEDaphors". I hope we can help you overcome your problems and become very FUNctional. Oscar
  6. Welcome new friend to our forum family. I am sure most of us can relate to your situation. We all have unique perspectives on depression and how to strategize solutions. Personally I experience depression as a natural formation / resource. I am a big believer in the power of invoking counteracting metaphors to Old Man Depression. Old Man Depression plays the most awful tricks on our psyches so my thought is we should play some clever tricks right back. We really are never helpless confronting depression. The best "drugs" in my opinion are clever and powerful (CLEVERFUL) MEDaphors. Sounds like you need a metaphorical dynamic generator pushing your energy level up to where you want it. Maybe this can help a little. Stay safe and Happy New Year. Oscar
  7. Happy Holidays to all. Depression doesn't take a holiday so we are here for support to anyone needing it. We are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. We can always light a candle metaphorical or actual. Things will be better. Cheers! Oscar
  8. I tend to view depression as a natural formation/resource. I invoke the cave metaphor to describe my depression experience. A cave is a great place to consign useless emotional baggage. I try to keep myself anchored outside my deep, dark, dangerous depression cave. I keep reminding myself that I am not helpless confronting Old Man Depression. I have an unlimited supply of clever metaphorical tools. Hope this can help a little. Oscar
  9. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We are here for each other. The "dark" place you referenced is of course metaphorical. We can counteract the metaphorical darkness with metaphorical light. We are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Hope you find a supportive home here with us. Oscar
  10. My message to myself and anyone else is that we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Your metaphorical fog is not impenetrable. Metaphors only exist when we imagine, pretend and make believe them into existence. In nature bright sunshine burns thru fog. Maybe you need some bright metaphorical sunlight to burn away your brain fog. Hope this can help perhaps a little. Oscar
  11. Welcome and condolences. Very glad you joined our forum family. Hope you find a supportive home here. We are truly never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. Please feel free to post your concerns and we will try to help as best we can. Oscar

  13. Welcome new friend to our forum family. Your post is interesting and compelling. We are not professionals but we do try to be supportive and hopefully helpful. My experience reveals depression to be a natural formation/resource. We are all metaphorically EMPTY but the question becomes what do we do with that emptiness. My approach is to metaphorically "anchor" myself outside my deep , dark, dangerous depression cave. Please make yourself at home here and keep posting your concerns. We will help as best we can. Oscar

  15. Welcome new member to our forum family. We are here to listen and help as best we can. I would just take note of the "weight" and "collapse" metaphors you invoked. I believe we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression and the metaphors we invoke reveal insight and solutions to our mental predicaments. We all have heavy emotional baggage weighing us down which can be metaphorically consigned to our depression " caves". My motto: DESPAIR not / REPAIR a lot. Hope this can help even a little. Oscar
