My family on both sides have severe depression. As far as I know I am the only one who SH. My spouse of 20+ years, I finally asked if any family member has or been severely depressed. The answer - no I read it is a 'DNA' problem, but I frontline how to tell them, I am, and I SH. Every day I have to search for a reason to get out of bed. I am not rich, nor poor. Have no 'needs' WHAT IS MY PROBLEM? People are starving, still going through abuse, have no roof overhead, etc. And my mind tells me, (and I fight every day) why fight, life is not and has no future other than emotional turmoil.View Thread
Thank you for the information. I have tried numerous medications and yet, I still wake up wondering why to get out of bed. I can't do anything right and I lose things all the time. If it were not for my mother, there would be no reason to wake up in the morning. Thanks again, I will wait for the cloud to lift. I hate mean people.View Thread
Apologize to others suffering with severe depression, I am weak and need to quit feeling 'woe' is me. My mother has so much more more baggage and is extremely depressed but hangs on for her children. I am trying to find a way to be less selfish. Tomorrow is another day.View Thread
