I had that same day yesterday, just wanted to cry. But, today, even after my horrendous BMI figure and my slight weight gain (?), I read an article to boost the mood. I still have to take my meds, I can't do it by "just making myself smile" but I know that if I do "fake it" long enough, my positive self will surface for a while at least.

Don't talk down to yourself when you are feeling blue. It's okay, we are people and we all have good days and bad days. I had one very long bad day (all of December and January) most recently. Now they are just here and there, but like you, don't know what brings them on. Hormones, meds, kids, stress? I believe that people that feel down or are clinically depressed are often very sensitive people. I know I am. I feel everyone else's feelings PLUS my own so deeply. This can be a blessing and a curse.

You have lost weight and that is a great thing to feel proud of! Hope today is a better day, you have me rooting for you today. Yours, Julie (jpaggeo)

Having a very blah day. Almost everything makes me want to cry.

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

ya know - Ive come to the realization that I am depressed........................ dont want meds - and I know this is not going to change over night.

So as long as I keep busy - and pretend Im not depressed - and get out there in the world..... maybe someday I will wake up and not be depressed.

Hello everyone. I had a meeting with my supervisor at work. I'd sent him a horrendous email "I can't take it any more. Putting in my two-weeks notice." Why did I do that? ((KICKS SELF)) Then another email, "I was having a bad day, changed my mind. He still wanted to talk to me but it's okay now. Unfortunately my supervisor is too understanding. He should have just fired me. I have to work all weekend but will white-knuckle it if necessary. The problem is not the job, it's me and my depression. emoticon

Hello, team.
Depression is so sapping. Being sick makes it doubly so. I listen to music and go out side. It usually helps lift my spirits some.

emoticon I get very depressed when I don't feel well. I have a sinus infection and a frozen shoulder. The shoulder has limited my exercise and the sinus infection has made me light headed and dizzy. Don't like feeling like this!

Hi team its been a bit since I posted on here. My depression was out of control earlier this year and my clinician upped the strength on one of my scripts. I has been working but I know it wasn't enough. My depression isn't all concoming like it was but I still feel blah. I still have trouble finding good things to think about and I am still having problems on some days getting out of bed to face the day. I know my depression has gotten worse do to health issues, money issues and the prospect of not being able to go back to work. I just don't know how to make everything better. As my health is not getting better, I find that my depression is getting worse. I never liked going to a councilor or a psychiatrist but I have a feeling that I may have to see one so that I can get a grip on my life.

Thanks for letting me post my feelings. Hope everyone is doing well.

I have leaned that you cannot rely on others or pets or "things" to make you feel better. BUT when I figure out what it is I will sure shout it to the world.

Hey. I wrote a blog on my page title " Treatment For Depression" that showed a pic of our new puppy. She made me feel so happy since these first two weeks we've had her,but now I'm feeling down again. Sadness,emotions stuck in the pit of my stomach(could'nt cry them out if I tried...does anyone else feel that?) I thought she had cured me.

I think that everyone who belongs to the page feels that life is hard. I started at the beginning of March to write down three good things each day, which has helped. It doesn't take the circumstances different but makes me feel a bit better.

I am sorry you are having to go thru this with your Mom. I too had to place my mom in a nursing home in 2012. She did not want to go and I had promised my dad that I would take care of her as long as I could. But the doctors finally intervened and she had to go. I visited her every afternoon after work and on weekends. Please just find the best place close to you. Make sure the staff knows you and you know them . You will get to be able to tell the people that really care and the ones that are just there for the job. Make sure the administration knows you and that you go to all the meetings you can. Volunteer if you have the time. You will find that the people around your mom will become family. The other family members will be a great support for you. Try to get your siblings on board and have them do the same. I had medical and legal power of attorney so that helped with decisions that had to be made. I was lucky with one of my brothers that we talked about things and could agree. The other not so much.

Had a bad night last night. Got to thinking about my children, a boy 16, and 2 girls 14 & 10. I have not seen them in 7 years. My ex in-laws have them and have not allowed me any contact. The past several months I have been thinking very much about my children. Last night I got very depressed nd had as bad crying spell. Then came the nauseted stomach and migraine. The nauseated stomach is mostly gone today, the headache is still lingering to were I am light sensitive, and smell sensitive. Also my face is swollen today. Tomorrow should bring a better more positive day.

Hope that you all are doing well and staying on task with healthy eating and exercise. To those who are having a knot so good day due to illness or other situation my prayers are with you. Keep your head up

You need someone to help you reconcile the past so that you can live more fully now. If you were the victim of sexual abuse, I understand. Find a therapist or someone you can talk to so that you can be more healthy. My prayers are with you!!

I'm having a bad day and what's worse is I have no idea what to do about it. Last night when my husband and I were being intimate I had a flashback/trigger, whatever you want to call it, whereas concerns my past. Another one of those puzzle pieces fell into place and while my husband was able to calm me down, today I feel forlorn, exhausted, wrung-out and wanting to hurt myself, which is the surest sign that it's still haunting me. I don't know if I posted in the right place, I hope I did...meh. Anyway, thanks for listening...

Thank you YAEME. Things still sticky here but I have to keep going and growing! Speaking of which, my healthy eating is not so healthy at the moment. It is usually the first thing to go when I feel unhappy or stressed. I hope your weekend will be pleasant and full of happy moments. Praying for that for all of us. Blessings, Dee. XX

Thank you Miller, you are a lovely lady. Good luck and hugs for finding the very best place that suits your mum and all her needs. All your friends here are sending you love and support in your search for the perfect housing. XX

By the way, I discovered there is still another weekend of the Six Nations to go!! Yeahh!! Looking forward to that, God willing. Would love to se Ireland win.

I actually went to a pub to watch the game on Saturday afternoon. It was so good to get out and have a bit of a laugh with my friend who I haven't seen for a while. I also saw a couple of people that I used to know ages ago and that was nice too. emoticon

Hello to everyone, things have been tough lately but hopefully I will battle on through. I've decided to be mindful of my own needs as well as the needs of others. I have a family, some of which are not reacting well to me doing things for myself and not doing their bidding as I used to. I felt disrespected because they didn't appreciate what I did eg. not eating the food I cooked and going on to cook something else and having their clothes all over their bedroom floor - ones I had washed and folded mixed up with dirty laundry. I simply stopped picking up and went out. No clean sweaters for school this morning so they had to wear what had been thrown on the floor on Friday. Needless to say there has been shock and horror especially when I went out instead of ferrying to and fro. I'm 54 now and feel the need to be myself instead of scurrying along unappreciated. I also believe that I am God's child and no-one has the right to put me down or diminish me. Those days are gone, with God's help I will fight depression and value myself in order to be strong and mindful of others too. I'm saying a wee prayer for all of us this morning team, that we can overcome thoughts that make us feel so bad and discover lovely things that make our hearts feel joy. Blessings. XX

Good luck, Miller. I hope you find a place that she loves. I have driven past some really nice assisted living places and always thought they were cool apartment complexes. I think since your Mom wants this, it may be just want she needs. Maybe she will meet some great people and enjoy it. I hope so. I will pray for you that it all works out. I'm sure the right place is out there.

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement. Best wishes on finding the right place for your mother; I can only imagine how hard that may be.

SALAM4545, I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling with insomnia, emotions, and conjunctivitis, as well. I know what you mean about any kind of physical impairment making things worse – that’s exactly the way it is with me. I think pre-planning and journaling are great ideas. Also posting here is good because it’s so easy to isolate when we’re feeling down when what we really need is to stay in contact with others. I also think YAEME79 had a good idea about getting some sort of physical activity, especially outdoors. Being in nature has a soothing and uplifting effect on me. Take care and do something good for yourself every day.


YAEME79, it’s wonderful that you found the right combination of medications to help your depression. I’m sorry you lost your job – that is such a stressful thing to have to go through. Try not to be hard on yourself, though. I’m sure you were doing the best you could at the time and it’s just one of those unfortunate things that sometimes happen. I hope you find a job soon and you and your girls will have more choices about where to live.


NEEDTOBESLIM3 – it’s so good to see you on the thread again. Kudos to you for learning about mindfulness and working hard to stand up for yourself and put yourself first sometimes – that’s great! And for those who don’t like it, they can get used to it or, as you said, move on. I admire you for taking care of yourself.

_________________________

Tomorrow, I'm starting the steps to place my mother in either an assisted living facility or a nursing home. It's a complicated process and I dread doing it for many reasons. I won't have a whole lot of help from my siblings, either - one works, one lives a few hours away and the other is against the whole thing. Mother wants to go because she can no longer care for herself and she's tired of living alone. It's a tough thing to face. I'll be doing a lot of praying.

Goodnight all. I hope the coming week brings a bit of joy to us all.

Hiya team, its been a while since I've posted on this thread and I'm finally waking up after the winter hibernation!! Things are going ok and I'm working hard to not be the pushover that I have been over the last few years. I'm learning more about mindfulness and it has made a big impression on my life and the way I want to live it from now on. Some people are not reacting well to me putting myself first sometimes but they are just going to have to adjust or move on. Blessings to you all, XX

I feel for all of you; I am lucky that about 3 years ago my dr. found the right combination of meds for me. I take sertaline ( a form of zoloft) and amitrypaline. When I do get depressed it is usually only for a few days. I have also found that just making myself do some sort of physical activity really helps.especially if it is outdoors. The weather has been getting more spring like and just being outside w/ the fresh air really perks me up and reminds me of better times.
I have been trying to find a job since I let myself get fired from an excellent job back in November; my girls and I are living w/ my mom now and she can be really mean and tries to push her way of thinking on others. I feel really bad for letting this happen b/c I do not want my girls around her on a daily basis; I had a hard child hood kinda; she spoiled me w/ things money could buy; but when she did give me attention it was usually complaining.

Always move forward

Ugh, I think I'm hitting a downward cycle. My emotions have all over the place, and Thursday I had Major Insomnia (always a bad sign). When I did fall asleep I had nightmares. Even after a nap the next day I was all over the place emotionally. Today I woke up with conjunctivitis. Physical impairment of any type added to no sleep adds up to trouble.

So, I'm going to try to minimize the worst of it by doing a little pre planning and journaling so I don't hit the depths too bad for too long. I'm hoping that monitoring it closely will help me pull out of it quicker. Any tips would be gratefully appreciated.

Teeny2bee, believe me I know what you are going thru. I agree totally with MPN5621. It was close to a full year that it took for my psychiatrist to find the correct medication to get me started on a normal life again. I still take anti-depressants and will for the rest of my life. Mine is a chemical imbalance in my brain and it took a couple of months with the psychiatrist to convince my wife that it was not something she did to bring on my depression.
My prayers are with you. It is not easy to get thru what is happening but you will and things will be better. Trust me.

TEENY2BEE, I typed a long reply to you earlier, but I must not have clicked on "Post Message" because it's not here and now I've lost it. I'll try to re-create the significant parts in a shorter and more succinct form.

First, I'm very sorry that you're suffering so much. It sounds like your depression and anxiety and migraines are not being treated adequately. I think it would be wise to return to your medical doctor (have your Vitamin D levels checked and other tests to see if there is a physical cause that can be treated) and your psychiatrist, if you have one, to have your medications re-evaluated.

Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right medications or combination of medications that will work for us specifically. Some people have treatment resistant depression and others, like me, are so sensitive to medication side effects, that we can never get up to a truly therapeutic dosage of medication.

It doesn't sound as though your husband has ever suffered from depression and anxiety. We can have people who love us and everything in the world to be grateful for, but those things can't wipe away the depression.

Please keep seeking better treatment. Life can get better - hold on until it does.

Hey Everybody. Never posted on here but just documenting everthing I am feeling,hope you dont mind. I am married with 2 kids.I have had my job for 16 years. I have had migraines for several years(have been treated for past couple of years but getting worse because of depression.) I take meds for anxiety and depression. My mother has been in and out of hospitals for the past two years and i never know when it will be her last time. All I want to do is sleep. Be left alone and sleep. I can find no happiness..not in food,not even in my own children. If something prompts me to cry,I cry. Most of the time i just have a feeling in the pit of my stomach just eating away. My husband says everyone loves me and I have no reason to have my 'freak outs or crying spells'. My migraines are worse.

What is the deal? emoticon

I love these words by Winston Churchill and hope to live by them:
Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.

Allen-I'm so sorry! I used to be a scout leader when I was young and I was getting panic attacks before each bigger outing or trip with my troop. Sometimes I felt like I was going to choke. I didn't understand what was happenning to me and why. I was extremely good at hiding this and acting like normal.
After two years I had to quit this activity, which was sad, but I weren't able to handle my feelings anymore and didn't even know that I could ask someone for help. I was sorry for the kids I left and for myself. I loved scouting, I loved those kids and I was a good leader. After all these years it still hurts.

I'm glad you feel better. And I hope you are seekng help to stop getting these terrible symptoms which hold you from doing things you'd like to do. Hugs to you.

ALLEN, I know panic attacks can be very debilitating and I'm sure it feels horrible when you get them. I'm sorry you weren't able to go, but am glad you're feeling better now.

Hang in there!

I volunteered for a project in the RV park a week ago to be done today and had to cancel because I had another panic attack. After I canceled I started to feel better but took all day to get back to normal. I am feeling good now again but hate the feeling when I get them. I will survive.

SAME, I’m relieved that you went to the doctor today and I hope they were able to help you. You really do sound terribly sick and you may need an antibiotic or something. If you can go outside to smoke, then I definitely think you can ask your BF to go outside to smoke. Get well soon!


PIGGYWAY, the weather is bad here, too, but Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be warmer. I hope your weather gets better soon.


RAPUNZEL, I’ve never traveled enough to have jet lag, but I hope yours soon goes away.


Hellos to all!!!

Same-so sorry you are so sick. My prayers are going to you. My sis has asthma and her DH had to always go outside for a smoke during winter, or she wasn't able to breathe. He went ahead and quit smoking a couple of years ago. He had similar symptoms as you do. I hope doctor gives you right medicine and you'll be better soon. Hugs.

I am getting ready to go to the doctors. I am hoping I can finally get over what ever this is. Over a week is to long. Depending on what she says I am asking her for the rest of the week off.. what ever this is I can't manage to sit up or stand up for more then couple hours without getting dizzy and light headed and nauseous ... And I really don't want my ladies catching it.. I am somewhat young and it is kicking my butt, couldn't imagine being in 90's and catching this.

When the BF called me Tuesday morning and said he was coming home for couple days, I thought oh no... not while im sick, this will be 3rd day here now and don't seem like he is leaving any time soon. It wouldn't be so bad I guess if he did not chain smoke... he can have like 5 or more cigs in an hour, and even with air purifier I just can't breathe. Sick as I am he has watched me bundle up and go outside to smoke, you would think he would to. I had maybe 5 cigs all day yesterday and smoked every one outside.. By 6:30 yesterday evening I was getting frustrated and said plz don't smoke so much or put that out I can't breathe. At 7 went out to porch and started coughing so bad I couldn't breathe... his fix was to put purifier on high... Which just threw out more cold air, and couldn't hear yourself think.. Gonna have to tell him today to at least smoke every other one outside ... I can't handle the smoke.

Anyway, I guess I better finish getting ready to go.

Hope everyone has a great day.
