Re: Am I really depressed or i just made this whole things up

I'm so sorry, is there an underlying reason for your depression? Were you abused or neglected as a child? Or, is it just unable to deal with emotions well in life? Look for the reason and why it started and you might find your healing in knowing. Also, it is good to get outside as much as you can wi...

Re: Very low and lonely

I'm sorry, I know it is hard to get up on your feet and move forward when you are so down! Have you thought of joining an in person support group or even a meetup of your passion and choice? There are many groups and then you make friends that have same interests. Also I did find taking magnesium an...

Re: Depressed girl with Strong Problems with asperger boyfriend

Well, the indecision is tearing you apart, and once you decide whether the relationship is worth continuing in, you will have more peace. It might help you to break it off for a while to decide whether to go back to him or not without the pressure from him. A time away can give us better perspective...

Re: People who recovered: How did you do it?

I'm so sorry. It is hard to be there for one in depression without it rubbing off a bit and with no closure it can haunt one. I don't know if it would help or hurt to reach out to him and see if he's better or not. Maybe thru a third party, find out for closure. Definitely talking w a counselor is g...

Re: My friend thinks i'm faking depression

I"m so sorry for his hurt to you thru his reaction. Some live in avoidance and just laugh the tough things off. It's his problem, not yours. Don't let his problem become yours or let you get worse. Choose to continue getting better. Sometimes people say the worst thing, thinking they are helpin...

Re: How do I talk to my doctor

Hi there, I would just be honest, deceiving in any way is confusing to the problem and might change his diagnosis or script. If you want to try something natural first, I us magnesium malate and also ginseng pills. They really help with anxiety and depression. They calm the mind body and spirit and ...

Re: Well, I'll give this a go.

Hello Raging calm, so glad you found us. Hope you find much help and encouragement here! It sounds like you had a pretty good childhood, at least according to your mom. Do you remember it being good? If so, it is very possible that this depression is either chemical imbalance or hormonal imbalance. ...

Hello Venus Flower, welcome! It is sad she is pushing you into that, your belief system should be your own, especially at your age. No one can force someone to be a Christian or any belief, it just doesn't work that way, and in the end pushes you further away. While you are with her, it is hard to g...

Re: I wish that life had a restart button.

Just start taking the first steps without overthinking all of them. research online, then call or email. Wait and let things happen as they will. It isn't a contract to just contact them, you're just thinking about it and let them know. Baby steps! =)

Re: I wish that life had a restart button.

I understand your hurt and I wish you could go back and change things too, that it would be different, and you had loving whole parents who did what was best for you. Sadly, your Mom probably grew up w such dysfunction too which is why she swept under the rug atrocities. Not always true, but more of...
