  1. I have Major Depressive Disorder and my life is hell. My meds barely keep me work, I have no joy in my life.
  2. Trace, thank you I was asking because I don't really see how to participate. Maybe I have my stupid cap on, but I don't know how to do this. VJoy
  3. I have Major Depressive Disorder...I don't have any support groups in my area.....do people have peer groups here on this forum? I am alone with no friends.
  4. Can someone direct me to where on this forum there might be helpful advice? I am severely desperate. Thank you
  5. Hi darcness and Proetic Prose, and peachesmary6, Thank you for responding.... To answer two questions, yes I am being treated, I have a doctor, a therapist, and meds. (the therapist suggested being happy for my husband.......I am sorry to say that I can't. While I still want him to go, I can't feel happy, i know that sounds selfish, but that is how important this is to me) I live as an invalid with Fibromyalgia and deep depression. I don't do anything. My husband and I did sit down and talk about this, several times. He has offered not to go, I won't let him. He must go, i have to find a way to deal with it. (It's tearing me apart, and making my depression worse) I realize this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for him.( which I cannot have), he has been waiting to be able to do it with me, but that will not happen. I cannot stop him from going. Thank you for your advice....my life is full of nothing, no interests, which makes this stand out all the more, probably, though nothing can compare with Italy.
  6. Hi all I posted undert newbie forum today. I have a problem with my relationship with my husband and my depression. First, I want to say he is very wonderful, and loves me very much. But my depressin has taken its toll on our marriage. He wants to do something and all i want to do is sleep. I have Fibromyalgia, and he is very aware of this, so he is compassionate, but I can't get around, almost never. We go out to eat that is all. He wants more, at least an hour in a museum or someting. Not very exciting for me. I have a HUUUUGE problem. In May, his family is going to Italy. We went there 19 years ago for honeymoon, and I dreamed of the day i could go back. But my body has gotten so bad any trip like that is impossible for me. My husband is going with them, without me. Now, I should be happy for him, but I can't be, I am DEVASTATED. I am feeling very sorry for myself, and the fact that he is going is interfearing with my feelings and our marriage. Now he has offered not to go, but i want him to go. it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and he works so hard and has had personal hardships recently, he should go. So I insisted he go, despite my feelings. I don't know how not to keep this from ******* me. It plagues me, and i think about it every day. We are starting with a marriage counselor soon, but no amount of talking will change my feelings of self pity and depression. I don't know what to do about these things......Italy, and he wants to do more on the weekends than I want. I have lost the personality that he wants back. VJoy
  7. HI LIndahurt, AquaViolet, taysmom, and Mikita, I truly appreciate your welcoming words. AquaViolet asked about my meds. Yes, I have tried many, many, many drugs over the years that either didn't work or had a bad effect. I am currently on Klonopin, Neurontin, Serzone, and Seroquel. It helps curb my panic attacks, but does nothing fo my depression. Being shut in the house so much has sapped my interests and I sometimes go to sleep at night hoping I don't wake up. Every day is the exact same copy. I don't know how people who have pain and and barely leave their house can have a good attitude, but I know they do. I wish I knew how being stuck in the same four walls is not soooo discouraging and depressing. Sorry for the rant, I just have SO MUCH rage and sorrow in me, and no outlet (walking and journaling don't work for me). Thank you so much VJoy
  8. Hello all, I am 48 years old, married 19 years, had a beautiful cat who died 2 years ago, live in NYC. I am desperately depressed, for the following reasons: I have Fibromyalgia, and my body keeps me pretty much an invalid with pain and fatigue. I know excersise is supposed to be good, but the most i can do is a little on the treadmill, which isn't enough. I have nothing to live for, really. I am home all day, with my own thoughts. All I do all day is sleep and watch tv. I have no friends, and no hobbies or interests anymore. Well, there it is. I feel hopeless, completely hopeless. VJoy
