Since I'm new here I'm not really sure how to determine if what I am writing is a trigger. The last thing I want to do is hurt or offend anyone. Can someone just give me examples of triggers so I can know when I'm writing something that could be a trigger for someone?
Thank you B happy. I had surgery on my wrist a few months ago and have had nothing but complications healing ever since. I've kind of expressed myself to my husband but he pretty much looks at it as... we don't have a choice but to deal. At least that's how he comes off.View Thread
Today has been really hard to get myself motivated. I really want to stay in bed. I've been in pain with my wrist, and last night I didn't sleep.(Which isn't un usual) I feel like just sleeping.
I had the chance to see some of my family this weekend. I haven't seen them in over 2 years. My husband said we don't have the money to go see them. (They'll be about 5 hours away). So that's really hit me hard because I really miss my family. He says I don't understand that money is tight. I do, I just am willing to give up the extra stuff to spend 2 days with my aunt and grandma. He obviously isnt. Which can I blame him? Well sorry I was rambling. My mind is just running.View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I really hope that you get through your hard times. Sometimes you just need someone that understands to be there to hold you up. Like I said before my husband is amazing, I just need people that understand depression and how it makes you feel.I'm glad that I can open up here and not have to worry about being judged. That's something that always intimidates me from opening up. Thank you again for your reply. Have a wonderful night.View Thread
Hello, My name is Sarah. I currently live in New Jersey with my husband and my dog. I moved here in December of 2009. I have a long history of depression and anxiety. I have 2 past suicide attempts and used to cut myself. (All when I was a teenager). I'm not happily married. I'm happy with my life but still find that I'm depressed. Does that make sense? I've been out of work since March because I had an injury on my wrist which caused me to have surgery. Luckily it was work related so I know that my job is secure. But, sitting at home with nothing to do and no one around while my husband works many many many hours has caused my depression to spiral back down. So that leads me to you guys. I hope that there isn't any judging here. I am simply here to find people to talk to and that understand how I feel. Though my husband is very supportive and tries very hard.. he has been fortunate and never struggled with depression or severe anxiety. He wants to help but just really can't. I have become very homesick and miss my family. But also, seeing my husband struggle to pay both of our bills on his own has made me feel very low. I feel like I'm a burden on him. He always reassures me that he doesnt mind because he knows its not my fault. But, I'm sure you guys understand, that no matter how many times he reassures me, it's never enough for me to reassure myself. I've been overweight my entire life. I've always struggled. In January my husband and I made a commitment that we're going to lose weight. (Since I had a huge spike in weight gain last year.) We did really well, going to the gym 5 days a week. Eating healthy. I lost a substantial amount of weight. Since this recent injury, I gained alot of the weight back. That has made my self esteem decrease greatly, which in turn makes my depression increase. Now I feel like I just can't get myself motivated. I've had so many issues with my wrist healing. (It still hasn't.) I just really need someone to talk to that knows how depression feels. I would love to make new friends. I also would love to help other people if I can with their problems.
