2 Funerals this week. Just found out that a friend of ours was working under his truck last night and the truck fell on him and killed him instantly. He leaves behind a 10 and 12 year old boy. The 12 year old son found him. They figure the funeral to be about Thursday and then I have my brothers on Saturday. I've had my share of depression. Getting over one death is enough. BBView Thread
Try to get samples from your therapist. I get my cymbalta through mail order and have had no problems getting it. My Dr. can even give me samples if I need them. Do some research. Good Luck BBView Thread
Hi, I have been suffering from major depression for many many years. About 15 years ago I experienced ECT treatments 4 years in a row. How many treatments did you have? I had 12-15 treatments each time. And I have never had to have it again. If you don't have enough treatments you can relapse quickly. Hopefully you have a good therapist. Good luck. BBView Thread
I'm at a loss..I got word that Hospice was with him all night and it would only be a matter of time. I got in my car and was headed down there to say goodbye one more time. I got a call 1/2 way there that he has passed. I turned around and came home. My brother and I didn't get along for years. Because of this my children and husband would have nothing to do with him because of the way he treated me. This gives me nobody to talk to. I sit here and try to find the good times but I can't think of any. He was a very angry man. He was 55. My eldest brother died at 47 5 years ago. Both these brothers didn't get along with each other either. My father died 15 years ago. He was very abusive towards my mother. I had a very rotten childhood. So bad I only remember the bad and not any good. My sister is 53 and had a hard life also. She was always in trouble and ended up in jail for 18 months for drugs at a young age. Me I was the youngest and said to myself back then that I wouldn't turn out like any of my siblings. I didn't. My husband and I will be married 30 years in September. I have 2 wonderful kids ages 27 and 29. They both have a child and I love my grandchildren. Because of my childhood I suffer from major depression, anxiety and PTSD. My family was a mess. Alone.View Thread
I will drive 1 1/2 hours to the funeral to set my mind at peace. No matter how mean, sick and evil he was he didn't deserve to die of this horrible death. The Dr.s told him he could live up to 5 years but he progressed so quickly that it didn't even last a year. He's at peace and not in any more pain now I have to find peace for myself. BBView Thread
[Trigger] I was molested by both my brothers for years. Then one brother died and begged for my forgiveness. I couldn't give it to him. My second brother only has a few days left before he dies. I did visit him but that is because I had to see the monster he was. I will not attend his funeral when he passes. Meantime it has affected my relationship with my husband of 30 years. I think seeing my brother that hurt me over and over has affected my relationship. I don't want a hug, kiss. I lost my affection towards my husband. He's hurting and he knows how I feel. He's giving me my space but the more space he gives the more I take.
I'm very depressed. The above is not the only thing going on in my life. I just don't know how much I can take anymore. I feel so lonely. BBView Thread
How do you grieve for a brother who is dying and in hospice when he hurt you all your life.
I hate writing here but I have nobody to talk to. I have no friends. Can't even talk to my husband because he wishes him dead now.
I'm depressed and stressed and have lots anxiety. You who know my kids are all living with me and my husband and it's stressing us out with 2 grandkids also in the house. Seems like all I hear is screaming. My stress cant' take it.
I have had surgery 4 times on my left knee and it has been giving my whole leg a lot of pain. That's not helping the depression and stress. I just had a shot in my knee. I get one about every 2 months.
