    Depression

    I have been sick for weeks now. My boyfriend just dumped me and left because he said he couldn't deal with my crap anymore. I feel helpless like I don't belong anywhere anymore. I took my frustrations out on the man I loved because my anxiety was so bad. Now my anxiety and illness are ten times worse. I can't believe he can still say he loves me but leave me behind in my worst times.

    Anyone feel unaccepted because of mental illness?

    I am getting up there in years and have never been married. It seems that most men who don't have an illness don't have the resources to cope with my illness,or can't be bothered to try,and I don't fit in with men who have an illness. don't get me wrong I am not looking for a date, I just want to know if any of the other women have this problem. I work with children, therefore I don't have much money, and am unemployed right now because of my illness. People at my church have....

    Depression Issues

    I have been struggling with depression and anxiety all of my life. It really hit me in college when I got on birth control for the first time. I was so depressed I was bed-ridden for a few days a week. I switched to a different BC, and started feeling better, but was still depressed and suicidal. I was then diagnosed with hypothyroidism and my doc has been messing with my medication for about 2 years, and I still haven't gotten the correct dosage. I was finally starting to feel less depressed....

    Depression getting worse

    I've been battling depression for over 20 years. I've been on numerous meds and about 3 years ago was prescribed Effexor. It worked great but in the last several months I've gone down hill. I don't have the desire to do anything, hobbies or maintain my house. I sleep for 12 hours and would really like to just spend all my days in bed asleep. It is really bad during the winter months. I take lots of vitamin D which is supposed to help but it doesn't. I have a good life, family....

    If I get kicked out of school I’m ending it all

    This is an update from my previous post https://messageboards.webmd.com/health-conditions/f/mental-health/36624/i-want-to-die-but-i-can-t-do-it I talked to my academic advisor today and my professor who failed me. My grade didn’t change. So now my fate is in the hands of the graduate committee. Judging from what the graduate evaluator said I’m not optimistic. If I get kicked out of school I’m going to end it. I can’t live like this. Right now I’m just relying on an online Magic 8 ball to stay a float....
