  1. I am sorry for how you all are feeling. I don't have much to say very often but I am scared.
  2. Talking to somebody that understands depression. Sometimes they are hard to find.
  3. Music does help me sometimes, I wish I thought to use it more often.
  4. 1. I got to an appointment on time. 2. The weather was nice today. 3. Nobody yelled at me today.
  5. Thank you both so much for your replies! Today it seems like so not a big deal, but yesterday I was so upset about her lack of communication.. She did call me back yesterday, and maybe it helped just talking about my feelings. Maybe I feel better because someone took the time to talk to me?
  6. Hello everyone, I have been struggling lately with communicating with my teenage daughter. I think she is a good kid, but obviously I am biased. She gets good grades in most subjects, has a part time job that she seems to enjoy. I am in my late 30's, male. My daughter lives with her Mom and Stepdad, only about 20 minutes away. Trouble is I don't think she wants to talk to me. I have to make several attempts to get any response back from her. I know she is busy, but I just want to hear from her once in a while, like maybe once a week. God knows I am not a perfect Dad, but I have done the best I can. I have put all I can into being there for her. Now that she doesn't come around much anymore I don't know what to do with myself. I built my life, however pathetic it might be, around her. She is all I have to show for the last 17 years of my life. Her Mother and Stepdad have a big fancy house, boat, camper, ATVs, big social life, etc. I have a rusty little pickup truck, and almost no social life. So I can understand why she would rather spend her time with them, but don't I deserve a phone call? What should I be going to do with my life now? People say hard work pays off, BS. It does not always pay off. I should probably just accept that life is not fair (Again). Thanks for listening.
  7. I feel isolated today. Not all the time, but most of the time. My life really isn't all that bad, why can't I be more grateful and feel good?
  8. Hello lookn4thelight, For what it is worth I am in a similar situation. I know how hard it is. Maybe you know a doctor or nurse or have a friend of a friend that is in the medical field that can point you in the right direction? That has worked for me in the past. I wish I could be of more help. Please consider this just a suggestion, you may have already thought of this, but maybe not. And welcome to Depression Forums!
  9. No Good. I want to cry everyday. Some days I do. Nobody I can talk to about it that can really help. This will pass.
  10. Low. It would be nice if I had some good news to share.
