    Crushing depression

    This is my first post. I’m in my 40’s and have dealt with depression off and on for years. My youngest child seems to have inherited this agony so that adds to my guilt for sure. I’ve been in ill health for some time and it’s kept me from participating in a lot of family activities. My youngest d I had made plans for this weekend, but I’ve been sick for several weeks now and couldn’t make it. He lives out of town. His gf messaged me that he thinks I don’t want to see him and it’s put me in a tailspin....

    Lost Hope

    I was diagnosed with clinical depression 8 years ago, and major depression a year ago. I’ve had a series of rough life events that I’m sure contributed: alcoholic mother, unfaithful exes, losing religion, having an abortion, etc. In general though, I’ve kept moving along, thinking I’ll feel better when my life was in a better place. I hated college, but eventually graduated. Did a management training program. And eventually left that company for a job in a creative field that I had wanted for a long....

    Drowning

    Ever feel like your drowning? The world is overloading your plate, and no matter how hard you try its swallowing you whole. Your losing control and losing the people you grew up loving and that by society standards, are supposed to love you back. Lost friends. Lost family. Losing my home. I feel backed into a corner and like I'm losing an uphill battle. I'm drowning. The room is spinning, I have to much anxiety to open up to people. To talk about my problems.

    I don't know if I'm abused or not

    I always feel like no one listens to me, and being a social outcast makes it even harder for people to hear what I have to say. Mom always tells me what to do, and what are my dos and don'ts. I feel like I'm a puppet of hers only, and my cousins feel the same. They neglect our feelings, and are so moody, they are unpredictable. I just want things to stop already. We are planning to run away. Is it a good idea? Am I just overreacting ? I mean, this has been my lifestyle ever since I was a....
