    70 year old male,39 years sober having depression

    Friends, I am now in a barely manageable state after a tour on a psychiatric ward. This is my second depression in 13 months. I left the job I very much enjoyed 2 years ago. In 2003 I had a bad depression but had not had one since until 13 months ago. Im eating right, exercising (moderately like 3.6 miles today) talking to friends but I feel like a heel talking about depression. This is my first shot at finding kindred spirits looking to put this thing in my rear view mirror.How do I join a group....

    Can you compartmentalize a physical person

    I am a domestic violence survivor and know I have compartmentalized the entire event emotionally. My question can compartmentalization include a physical person and not their voice? Can you be afraid or have no feelings at all during an event in which you physically present, but on the phone have a positive response, laughter, joking etc but no fear? Can you mind make it so that the person only exists over the phone?

    Getting undressed at doctor's office.

    I don't know why but I remember once being naked at the pediatrician when I was very young and it made me feel very strange. Ever since I think I would always never have to get undressed when I would go to future doctors. And now my current doctor is retiring and I don't know what I can do. I don't like the feeling of not having my clothes on in that sterile room. What if I have to wear those gowns?

    Angry all the time

    I am 80 years old. All of my friends have either died or moved on. My children live far away (and one of them no longer speaks to me). My husband is non-communicative (and often drinks too much). I am very isolated (except for my little dog). And I find that I am angry and/or worried all the time. The current political scene makes me very angry. I cannot talk about it. The current coronavirus situation makes me very angry. But I really think that the anger is just another manifestation of a long....

    How Does Kanavance CBD Oil Work?

    For a large number individuals, when they're in torment or experiencing disquiet, they rush to the pro for an answer. Regardless, we in general acknowledge arrangements are addictive and unsafe.

    Help!

    I am so tired. Tired of waking up every single day and dealing with depression, anxiety, and all the symptoms that go with it. I have been on antidepressants for several years. They worked for a while but now I feel like I am at the bottom of a deep black well with no way out. I try so hard to fight but I always lose. I hate the way my family looks at me and how much they are hurting too. I just wish I had a "normal" life.

    Depression

    Depression feels like a black empty hole that you're stuck in day after day after day. Of course I had issues growing up but i feel like the circumstances could of been worse. I am extremely blessed but I am lost. I feel like I don't do anything right. I don't have a talent or something im good at and i have no desire to learn or put the hard work in to do something about it. Months pass and I still feel this extreme sadness. I cry everyday. I don't understand why I was put on this....

    Feeling Worthless

    I feel like I'm dead inside, I'm ashamed of myself and avoid contact with people as much as possible. I was diagnosed with Major Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder many years ago. I have no motivation for anything anymore. I guess I just wanted to say that to someone. Thanks.

    Bipolar depression

    My life used to be great and I had no problems dealing with depression. I remember the day it all began. It was right before my 22nd birthday when my brother got sent to prison. I didn't go to the courthouse with him that day because none of us expected him to get sent off just probation for an assault charge. Every since then I've dealt with depression as I started spiralling that day. I started to think it was my fault that it happened, so I attempted to OD. I was self admitted to the psychiatric....
