Chez1, I know this isn't your first "rough" day. I also know a little bit about you. I believe you are strong enough to keep going just for yourself. Your battles, will they end? I don't know, I wish they would and you are taking as many steps as you in the right direction to help yourself. Which all of us here applaud you for. All of us know what a bear depression is (you can substitute you favorite word for bear), how destructive it can be in our lives. Just remember as you climb that rope out of the well, keep reaching for that next knot in the rope. It may happen that we can recover from depression. Will it be in my lifetime -don't know. In your's? I think it has a good chance.View Thread
Chez1, can't say about the staff posts, perhaps they are on a retreat? Here's what 13 inches of snow looks like. We had one day of 55 degrees, this mornings low would have been close to 0 F. Holding it together. Some cloudy days but more sunshine than usual this time of year. How you doing? View Thread
AN-249786, yes depression can make you act out - sometimes so sick of self and full of loathing that we cut our selves, do destructive things to our relationships. I am certain the list goes on and on.View Thread
Lukeperry, outstanding effort on your part. Events like this create hope and continuing courage when we read posts like this. Yes, courage. We know the other calling to us. It's not an easy one to rebuke.View Thread
I find Irish music along with most music to help my moods. I do have to watch out for songs like "sittin on the dock of the bay" love the song but it it can reach into the hole we call depression.View Thread
itmatsb had some excellent suggestions for you to try. I really hope you copy your post and take it to your doctors. It may give them a real sense of where you're at emotionally. Some times we pour to much of our selves into our pets or animals. I know I have. When we should be pouring more into our selves. Depression is a rough road, and the doctors honestly don't know enough on how the brain works. Sorry to say and I don't want this to be mean, but they are still in the feathers and beads stage. Which isn't much help to us.View Thread
MyRain, Chez1 - We did it! We made it to another year. Hoping you have a Happier New Year, and more blessings than you know what to do with. "Lang may yer lum reek!" (live long and stay well) The Scotts said this well before Mr. Spock.
Chez1, thanks for the frosty thoughts ( lol). But I think we have enough snow for now. We need to get the ice off the streets. Hoping Boxing Day went well for you and yours, a healthy and happier New Year.View Thread
