Hey party people, what's up!

So, I'm a newbie here but not to forums or depression. Been on celexa 10 years now, paxil and others before. Self medicated myself like a boss back in the day, right into rehab. But that was then and this is now.

I've had a handle on life mostly for sometime now, but as I'm betting alot of you know, that's a tentative thing. So just curious what the rest of the blue crew it up to.

Hello all. I am new to any type of forum so not really sure what to expect, but hope to gain insight and understanding, and maybe even positively contribute eventually. I have depression and am going through a particularly difficult time at the moment, but can easily imagine that there are (perhaps very many) others who have gone/are going through something similar. I'm not usually a fan of anonymity, but am afraid that I'm using it now as I don't think I would have signed up otherwise. To anyone who happens to see this, I hope you are well, and wish you all the best.

Hi! I'm new here and I have had depression off and on through out my life. This is by far the worst it has ever been not so much the feeling but how long it is lasting.  I cannot seem to come out of it or break free. I will be ok for a day or two or part of a day and then the feelings come flooding back. I try to change my mind set, I try to distract myself, I try to forget all that has brought me to this point, but I can't forget the past and the pain it has caused me. I don't want to do anything. I want to be left alone. I don't know what the point of life is or my purpose. I start to question everything and everyone. Because no matter what I do or don't do it upsets someone and I cannot stand hurting others. At the same time I don't always want to or have time to help others when they ask and then I end up feeling guilty about it. So it's like a lose lose situation. I am hoping that talking to others who have similar feelings will help. To break it apart and bring a way to cope or at least find a happy medium for me in my life. Thank you for allowing me to be here.

Mad at life, your story sounds so much like mine. It has taken 40 plus years, 4 therapists,  several wrong diagnoses and many medications to get where I am today. I still have days where the past & hurt seem to take over my brain and I listen to music, do guided meditations, yoga, eat chocolate kisses and ice cream, and yeah, I admit on very tough days, I go to bed. The folks here are great. We understand.
