... everyday. does anyone feel like that ?
You really need to see a professional. There was a poster I saw years ago and it said "I don't know where I am going, but I am on my way'" It sounds like you.
I know that there has been changes in your life. But now is the time to work on some resolution and move on.You are stuck and scared to move.
I have been there and professional help guided me along and gave me tools to deal with life.
Make the call as soon as possible. Let us know how you are doing as you recover and move on.

Hi Macks, I understand, I suffer from depression pretty often myself. What helps me is my hobbies. I busy myself with reading a book, doing crossword puzzles, playing solitare on computer, downloading music and crochet. Find yourself a hobby and get busy, before you know the whole has gone by and you make it to a new day!
I know exactly how you feel because I have been through it back in 2004 and I am still trying to fight my way out of it till this day. I attended group therapy for 3 months and now I am in individual therapy and my therapist is a really fantastic one and he is really helping me a lot. I am also on 300 mg of Welbutrin XL. With a lot of support, try group therapy and individual therapy, a lot of prayer and get out as much as you can and think positive thoughts and you will be on the road to recovery. God Bless You.
You're not alone. I've been there many times and what I've found helps a lot is making sure you're telling your doctor everything and are completely honest. If you have trouble remembering certain feelings or experiences, you could try writing it down so that you can be honest and thorough when talking to your doctor.
I think asking your question on here shows you're headed in the right direction. Keep looking for community and support to help you get through this along with the help from your doctor.
Good luck and God bless
i feel depressed everyday because i am so overwhelmed with everything thats goin on around me... i just try to think about the things that make me happy so i have a smile on my face instead of a frown... and if u cant do that then there is something really bothering you to disrupt your life like that.
Last year I had the same problem and I saw my doctor and was put on different drugs like Zoloft but they only made the problem worse. I then saw an Integrative Medicine doctor in my area and was put on a natural substance, L-Theanine. I was prescribed both the spray and the pills in the beginning. I could use the spray anytime I was feeling depressed and take 2 of the pills 3 times a day but could take more if needed. This was a life saver! I am now taking 1 or 2 pills a day and am not depressed. I was also put on iron and vitamin D. You can purchase L-Theanine many places including health food stores, even Amazon. I highly suggest you have a vitamin work up from your doctor or an Integrative Medical doctor. L-Theanine promotes relaxation and reduces stress withou sedation. According to my doctor it is save with other drugs.
yes - i have felt that way many times; a lot of great things said here already.
I have been helping people for years that have various psych and emotional problems (as do I) and one thing I have noticed is that it is very important to tell the doctor everything going on but also I need (very important) to have a therapist or good support group and talk about what bothers me.
Medication alone without therapy doesn’t do it for me or the friends I have known – it is always best to have both. Medication will treat the chemical problem. For the feelings I need a good therapist or good support group or close friend to talk to. Trust is extremely important with that.
All that being said sometimes I still have to just walk through it – please do not think that I mean that it is easy.
Peace and Health to you; Eric
