    Welcome Wreaked1234! So sorry that your best friend is letting you down this way when you need him most. Maybe finding a good therapist to see you through this hard time would help and give you someone to be there for you.

    The Couch

    Sorry, Natasha. How sad! I feel for you and wish I could fix it and make it better. So hard when we can't.

    Going through chronic major depression and anxiety

    Welcome Matthew! Sorry that you are going through so much! We are here to support you as best we can. You are not alone. Yes, depression & anxiety can cause physical problems I think. Also if one has not worked on their issues from the past, they eventually need to come out somehow even physically. Maybe try to see a psychiatrist as well as a therapist because they are doctors that know brain function and if they recommend meds, even temporarily because of your circumstances, then they know what they are talking about. I don't think your Mom should decide for you.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    Feeling pretty good today as I'm learning how to live better with my depression & anxiety instead of trying to fix it or fight it away and it's helping!

    That's great! You're a good fighter!

    Does therapy or counselling help?

    Sorry that you are suffering so. That's a difficult place to be. Your husband sounds like he has some major issues and they are not really about you. Hurt people, hurt other people without thinking. What you are doing is a very good thing to do. Keep at it and let us know how you are doing.

    Opening Up With The Therapist

    Hi Sandman! For me, I might give it a few more visits until I'm sure I am safe with this person or share one very personal thing and see what response I get back. If they listen well, respond kindly & helpfully, and honor my pain, then I would feel safe to share more.

    What's On Your Mind Right Now? (2)

    One more hour at work and I get to go home! Then what?
  9. This is so hard to manage and others don't understand. I fake it a lot of times. It takes all my energy just to be here each day and do a little work. I worry about being found out. Anyone else struggle with this or have some helpful ideas of how to get through the workday?

    I can't take it anymote

    Welcome Tim! What a hard place to be in! I so feel for you. You are not alone and we are here to support you as best we can. I hope you have a good therapist that can help you through this time. This will pass eventually and things will change for the better. So hang on and learn to be your own best friend. That helped me a lot. A good church group could be supportive too.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    I can so relate to you. So don't feel too bad as I know it's the depression that zaps our energy. I'm mostly faking it at work. I just don't have the energy. So I delegate work back to the factory that I could do. I put things off. I'm late. I'm on this site and pretending that I'm working. So sad! I feel bad but what can I do? Also it takes all I have just to be here and do a few things, go home, eat something, watch TV, sleep, and do it again the next day. I don't have energy to do much more.

    Dealing with middle of the night insomnia

    Welcome billyg! So sorry that you are having sleep issues on top of depression. I can relate to that also. That can be so frustrating. However, now I am on Latuda and sleep great. Trazadone has helped previously. Hope you find the support you need here. We work hard at it but sometimes it takes some time to respond. Hang in there. You are not alone.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    I finally got some exercise by taking a good walk! It has been so long. I'm grateful for feeling up to it!
