    Concerned partner

    Hi all. Background: I have been together with my other half for just over a year, engaged since Christmas and living together for the same period of time. I'm 35, she is 31 and at the moment we are both working freelance in the entertainment industry, doing well professionally and looking to buy a house rather than our small flat. I've always known that she has been and sometimes still is struggling with depression. She has been using anti depressants but has very slowly, and after advice....

    Lost and feeling alone.

    I have bipolar disorder and recently was terminated from my job. I completely screwed up. I feel I can no longer work in my chosen profession, a career I’ve been working very hard at for 19 years...the career I wanted to do since I was a little girl. I am loving, caring, want to help and do, but I suffer. My medicine has been tweaked but I’m still not “normal”. It seems like who I really am is disruptive and seen as NOT normal. I feel overwhelmed with everything that has happened and one day I’m....
  • Depression

    Sometimes mine gets really bad but I always find it does get better. I am bipolar. So it seems a little harder sometimes. I will say this. If someone isn’t there for you then let them go. Some people just don’t understand or have no desire to be involved. A person that I thought I could rely on after a long friendship proved that to me. I feel good knowing there are places like this even though it’s the internet. We can support each other.
  • So depressed

    I feel so useless. I don’t think that I have a purpose anymore. My children are grown. I can’t seem to let go of the past. I am bipolar so I do take meds but sometimes they don’t help.

    Depression or Bipolar???

    First, I'd like to say that I'm going through the worst depression of my life, or second. The suicidal thoughts are creeping back into my mind and the want to harm myself is strong. The only things keeping me going are my fiancé, dogs, chickens, fish and plants. They are the only reason I get out of bed and shower...sometimes. My meds don't seem to be working and I'm just tired of it. I've been diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety and PTSD. I'm no expert but I have noticed....

    Losing my mind

    I have always struggled with anxiety and depression for the majority of my life and I thought I had a handle on it. Then the psychosis symptoms started showing in my early 20's. I'm now 24 and still no official diagnosis but I have been on a few types of antipsychotics and I just feel so doped up from them. Why is my diagnosis taking so long? I want the voices and paranoia to go away. My anxiety is worse now since I have a constant voice in my head confirming all of the things I'm scared....

    I am tired of being suicidal and unhappy.

    So I know there is something off about me. I have had multiple suicide attempts and self harming episodes each week for pretty much as long as I remember. Anytime anyone says anything that I percieve as a negative comment against me. I immediately go to suicide and I feel manic. I think no one loves me or care about me and I'd be better off dead. It's affected my personal relationships so deeply it's scary, my mom says I'm bipolar. My friends say I'm angry all the time. My fiance....

    Depression sucks.

    Hi, so it’s my first time on a message board. ranting to total strangers but maybe it’ll help more. i’m 19, and i have chronic depression. i’ve had since i was 13, or at least that’s when it really hit me. it was around the time my little brother passed away. which is a really long story so all i’ll say is it was an accident on his part. my family was falling apart when it happened, my mom isolated herself, my sister cut and my other sister was just away a lot so i was really alone. my brother was....

    A non-motivated burden

    Hello, anyone who is reading this.. I am a first time depression board poster. Even though i have everything anyone can ask for, I have a husband who works his a** off for me. Yet i cant find the energy to do what i need to. I cant find the energy for anything. Im young, and yet i find life to be unfulfilling. I feel like a burden on my family and friends. I feel like i am leeching all the money and fun out of everyones lives when i feel ok enough to share my sadness. There is a history of depression....
