    I feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful husband. He makes me feel very lucky and very loved. I don't think I could help out here as much if it wasn't for his love and support. I also feel very fortunate to be one of the Mods, Support Staff, and Admin here on DF who volunteer their time and talent. I believe in what DF offers, and I know they do, too.

  1. What Are You Reading?

    A Muddied M***** by Wendy Tyson (meh) Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann () Still Life by Louise Penny (meh) I think the 'meh' is me, not the book... meh.
  2. If you are having difficulty reading about religious topics, you might want to give consideration to avoiding the Depression and Religion forum until you feel comfortable with the topic again. There are threads on the forum for those with alternate belief systems (or lack thereof), but I understand how it can be upsetting just to be on this forum. That's why certain topics have their own forums, so people can avoid them if they feel they need to.

    Holiday blessings to you too, thank you!
  4. Welcome to DF, antihx. I"m sorry you are struggling so much right now, but I"m glad you made your way here. I think it sounds like you need to talk to a therapist or counselor to help you sort out these feelings.
  5. I need advice

    Welcome to DF, MattB115. I'm sorry you are struggling right now, but I"m glad you made your way here. It's good that you are going to see a psychiatrist - that's a great first step, and I'm glad that your mom is willing to take this step with you.
  6. My thoughts on the holidays.....

    but Merry Christmas / Happy Kwanzaa / Happy Hanukkah / Prosperous Solstice anyway...

      Im sorry. Im Buddy. :( i start in November because i am crazy. I hope it wont be a bad experience for you.

  7. Merry Xmas

    I can really identify with this. There's a meme out there that really says it for me, I'll have to put it up on my profile. It's two pictures side by side. One is Will Ferrell as Elf, super-mega-excited about Christmas. The other is a LOTR character, in the rain on a battlefield. He says 'So it begins.' That is the way I feel after Thanksgiving. 'So it begins.' Do what you need to in order to take care of yourself (provided it doesn't entail hurting someone else...)
  8. My take on relationships with women

    Welcome to DF martymar1964. It sounds like you are doing a good job of taking care of yourself. I can really identify with the holidays triggering your depression. I think it does something of the same thing for me. I feel only death and loss and failure, somehow I seem to miss feeling all the joy and cheer until it's over. And then I'm not really sure if its joy and cheer I'm feeling, or just profound relief that I made it another year. Anyway, I'm glad that you have friends to turn to. I hope being here on DF helps you.
  9. This meme really changed my perspective on my struggle with depression. I'm not sure who posted it, I think originally it was a therapist; I edited that out to make sure I don't violate ToS in some way. 


  10. New member hi

    I think that talking to a therapist would help you sort things out. Sometimes we end up with unhealthy ways of thinking about things, and don't always realize how unhealthy they are.
  11. Welcome to DF, hannah. I'm sorry you are struggling right now, but I'm glad you made your way here. I hope being able to express yourself here helps you to figure things out and feel better in a way. You might consider talking to a therapist. They can help you work through things and figure out what is healthiest for you.
  12. bit of an introduction

    Welcome to DF, smell! I"m sorry you are struggling right now, but I'm glad you made your way here. I hope it helps to be able to express yourself and get things out.
  13. New member hi

    It's not your fault, but sometimes people don't always make sense. It's important to try to change the way you talk to yourself, and to work through your issues. Therapy is a good way to do this, and a great first step.
