  1. Hi @MayzeeDog0518. Thanks for sharing your point. Good to know that DBT worked out for you. I did CBT therapy for some time but quit soon after because I just didn't seem to look at the root cause of the issue. What I really need right now is friends and family of which I have none. Even if I do take a break I know I will do nothing but spend the entire day in my bed doing absolutely nothing. The FMLA thing doesn't apply to me because I'm from India and things are different here. Anyways, let's see how far can i go:)
  2. Hi. Thanks for your comment. Yes I am seeing a psychiatrist and I've been on medication for quite a while now. As far as sharing my feelings are concerned, I find it extremely difficult to convey my emotions to others. I do't make the effort because I know no one will understand.
  3. Hi. Thanks for your wishes. Yes I am on medication and it did help initially but now I can't tell the difference. The psychiatrist asked me to take a 30 minutes walk daily, to pray but my depression is at its worst in the morning. Getting out of the bed is the real challenge for me. I look for excuses to skip office. My performance at work is on decline. I may be fired soon and I have no idea what am I gonna do after that.
  4. Hi. Sorry to know that you feel the same way. It feels good at the same time to know that someone knows what this illness feels like because I feel that no matter how hard I try, I could never make a normal person understand what I'm going through. For many, it's just an abstraction. Every single cell in my body wants to give up. Wish I could fast forward the time and jump to the last day of my life on this earth.
  5. Hi..Thanks for your reply. I'm from India. I am willing to switch my job field wherein I could have some solitude even if that comes with lower pay. I know it will take real courage (something that I'm completely bereft of) to start anew. I hope I try.
  6. Hi. I have been suffering with depression for eight years now. I'm 29 years old. I have spent my entire youth battling this illness. But now I have started to realize that my depression is stronger than my will power. I can no longer struggle with myself to get out of the bed in the morning, to drag myself to office. I have been switching jobs on and off all these years. I don't feel like living but suicide is not an option for me. I want to take a break but my financial situation does not allow me that. I know there could not be any simple one liner answer to it (maybe there is). I wish I could spend the rest of my life in the woods without any people around me. Simply put. I want to die. But I can't
