  1. Welcome elm! Glad that you reached out and found us. I would recommend seeing a psychiatrist as they specialize in mental health and understand much more about how the brain works and about meds. Yet if you are comfortable with your doctor, I'm sure they have treated many people who suffer with depression. Wish you well and hope you keep coming back, reading, and posting. BW
  2. Hi Mae! Sorry that you are having such a hard time. Sounds like you may be bipolar with all the ups and downs. Maybe that will help you if you get on a bipolar med. Glad that you are here with us. BW
  3. I'm doing pretty well lately. The new med I stared a few weeks ago seems to be working. Hopefully it will stay that way. I just can't take any more med changes. That has got to be hard on your body. I have lowered my expectations of myself and what meds can do. They were way too high before. So I'm hoping that will help too.
  4. Welcome, rilo45! Glad that you reached out. I, too, can relate to you. I also started Wellbutrin and it seems to be working yet I have had other meds that seem to work yet after a while they don't. Sorry that you lost the job you love and are suffering this awful illness. Yet good for you for your positive outlook. We will support you as best we can. You are not alone in this. BW
  5. It helps me to remember that all the thoughts that come to me are not all true. If I rent them space in my head, then it gets harder to get them out of my head. So I review my behavior and if there is nothing I did that was inappropriate, then I dismiss the thoughts and let them fly out the window. Also I have learned that what others think of me is not my business. If I am being the best I can all things considered, then that is all I am responsible for. There is no way that I can please everyone I meet and that is not my responsibility. Not everyone is going to like me and that does not mean there is something wrong with me. It is just part of the human existence. BW
  6. So sorry that you are in a lot of pain now. There are therapists that charge on a sliding scale. There are also on-line therapists you could try. There are also meds that help yet don't live you numb. Hope you can see your doctor or better yet a psychiatrist who is a doctor with extra training on mental health and how meds work. That should be covered by insurance. BW
  7. I, too, agree that moving could be a fresh start as long as you don't expect it to solve all your problems. You need to do what is best for you, all things considered. I wish you well. BW
  8. Sorry that you are having such a hard time. I would talk to your doctor about this if I was you. A psychiatrist would be even better as they have extra training in how the brain works and about meds. So hope that you find some release soon. BW
  9. Welcome, Sea! Thanks for sharing. Sounds like you have good professional help and are willing to follow their advise. We will support you as best we can. You are not alone in this. BW
  10. Welcome, Sam! Glad you reached out and found us. Sorry that you are in such a hard place. I've been there at times and it is awful. Beside getting support, a therapist, a psychiatrist, and meds, I have needed to accept that I have an illness that I can't cure or control. I've needed to lower my expectation for myself and learn to live with depression & anxiety one day at a time with God as my Higher Power. Hope you keep coming back, reading, and posting. You are not alone in this. BW
  11. Welcome! Sorry you are hurting so bad right now. You might look into getting a psychiatrist who are doctors with extra training in mental health. Glad you reached out to us. We will support you as best we can. You are not alone in this. BW
  12. Sorry that you are in such a hard place. Good for you for reaching out and getting the help you need. The future may look bleak yet you never know what will happen and what you don't know now but will see down the road. Hang in there with us. You are not alone in this. BW
  13. Welcome to DF! Hope you have seen a psychiatrist who knows a lot about these meds and how they affect us. Hope you keep coming back, reading, and posting. We will support you as best we can. BW
  14. I, too, welcome you! Sorry you are dealing with all that yet glad you are taking some good steps for your mental health. Please keep coming back, reading, and posting. You are not alone in this. BW
  15. I'm so glad it is Friday. I can't weight to get more sleep and recover form this hard work week. Wish all of you a restful weekend!
