    New to this

    Not really sure where to start but figured I'd try this site. So my main question is getting people's opinion on who to see over this. I have been experiencing depression symptoms for several years and I was able to "control" and hide it, still managing to live successfully without it interfering with most of my daily life. Lately I've noticed its gotten worse the past few months and its not beginning to affect my life and others around me are starting to notice. This seems....

    Bipolar or schizophrenia

    I have a family history of schizophrenia. Since I was around 16 I've dealt with melancholy or depression. I dealt with this condition on my own with suicidal thoughts. I was diagnosed with Bipolar type one. Can Bipolar be similar to schizophrenia? Or could I have been wrongly diagnosed?

    reactions to depression

    Hello all I have depression and have gone off my meds and started doing journal therapy and will begin meeting with a counselor in the new year. I have to say the journaling has helped me a great deal to feel better and more positive. I asked my husband if he has seen any change in me and he recently told me he sees that I am trying but that it does not seem natural. Talk about busting my bubble. I asked him to be honest with me I do value and need his feed back but I don't know how to take that....

    Why is a friend with depression so difficult to communicate with?

    I have a friend who says she has depression and anxiety and takes medication for both. We have been getting to know each other as friends for about 9 months now, coworkers first. She makes herself so hard to communicate with, I have to go where she is which is work and see her in person just to get some conversation. Sometimes that leads to hanging out when she’s done working if she doesn’t have other plans. When we part ways we usually hug so I know she likes me. If I text her it is extremely difficult....

    Sadness, depression

    I lost my husband of 54 years in June of this year. He passed away from Parkenson's but from Lue Body Demensia. It was horrible to watch a man go from walking and talking to a man who did not know who I was half the time, had hallucinations all the time, could not feed or dress himself. Within 4 months of Lue Body diagnosis he was gone. I was with him to the end but not sure he knew it. Miss him daily, can't seem to move on yet. With Christmas around the corner not sure how I am going to....
