I can so relate. I have basically given up and am barely existing, wishing for death to end my pain. The only thing I can tell you is, at one time there were things I cared about and they gave me motivation to keep going and help myself. Is there anything at all for which you have a passion or a per...

I was dumped by my therapist too, and its harsh when you realize that its just a job to some of them and some don't really care about you as a human being. Unfortunately, I've had some very very bad experiences with the mental health profession. So I totally understand your hesitancy to go in the ho...

I am worried that you are sobbing at work and not getting the recognition for your efforts...could it be that the depression is affecting your performance somewhat? I don't mean to scare you, I just had a thought about a drastic action you could take before quitting or losing your job that might hel...

I am so saddened to hear all you have been through, but your kids and your beloved husband are good reasons to hang on...love and family are priceless gifts. I didn't notice what country you are in, but have some suggestions. In the USA for instance, sometimes you can get free legal counseling. For ...

First, I totally empathize with the sense time is running out to have a family. I am 48, and now that door is closed for me, but I have learned to accept it. Maybe you cannot have a family right now, but there are things you can do to have a sense of family and children in your life. For example, I ...

I am 48 years old and sleep with the light on. I used to be confident and now I am plagued with self doubt and am no longer comfortable around even people I know sometimes. I live alone and noises freak me out to. I hardly leave the house anymore. Just want you to know, you are not alone in such fea...

Welcome to the forums! Congratulations on getting sober. As a recovering alcoholic myself, I know we sometimes slip into alcoholism trying to escape the way we feel and self-medicate emotional or mental disorders. Getting sober is a great first step, because in the long run it only makes the underly...

One other quick thing, do you get the newspaper or look at it online? Or are there any free newpapers that advertise local events? Sometimes I find out about free activities that way. Recently there's been something about an anxiety/depression support group that I'm hoping will work out for me. But ...

Oh ((((((((((Dustyman))))))))))) my heart goes out to you. I know well what it is to work hard for a dream and have your dream smashed to pieces and to feel lost and hopeless and life seem to spiral from there. How awful that you got laid off on top of everything, but hopefully this will be a chance...

I have some suggestions for you from what I haved learned from my 12 step program and from therapy. First sit down and make a list of all the wrongs you have done to others, real or perceived. Add to it as you think of others over several days. Then take some time on how you would or will make 'amen...

I know it can be frustrating in the forums because you don't always get a quick response.
