I relapsed again! I started the whole process all over again, and I am soooo depressed! I'm normally on anti-deppresants but it just seems things that I guess I was "suppressing" is all coming out now. Everything bothers me or makes me sad. I forget what it feels like to be my old self again before starting any of this. I seriously sometimes just feel like crying!! I kinda feel how I did when I had post-partum depression. I want to cry and I don't know why! I'm just so sad!!! When will I feel normal again???
It sounds like you need a good counselor and psychiatrist. I too suffer from depression and have been on several medications for it. The best thing I ever did was check myself into a psychiatric facility for a short time to get on the appropriate medication and start the healing process. I am not going to tell you it is easy because it isn't but am doing good now. I am still under the care of a counselor and psychiatrist but I can function and go on with life. You need to get to the bottom of your issues that are making you depressed. Do you have any support around you? Like family friends that you can turn to someone you can turn to no matter what it is anytime day or night. A good friend is always helpful especially if that person has been there before, you know someone you can tell anything to that won't judge you.
I have that in my husband and this site there are a lot of good people here and there is always someone on that may be able to talk back as soon as we can, but sometimes we all need someone on the outside a professional. I have been through a lot and I would be willing to make you a friend and talk all you want if you would like that. I get e-mail alerts when there is a response to anything I say here so you can write a response here after you read this and let me know but most important is to keep yourself safe. If by any chance you get suicidal please get to your local emergency room, you can get some help there and then come back and get some support when your ready after that. Please let me know how you are doing if you would like too I do care about people and so do others on this site I am here if you want to talk, marjorie zych
I got to this point you are at only a few months ago. I was soooo low and crying all the time too. My sister and family said one thing to me that helped me, so I"ll pass it on to you, YOU WILL SURPASS THIS, IT WILL END". Basically they were telling me no matter how crappy I felt, it was temporary, and I would pull myself through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. But the most important thing is get help, from an emergency room, urgent care, 24/hr psychiatric help, friends, family, but don't be alone during this fragile time. The last thing you want to do is reach out, that is how I felt. My husband did it for me. But connection is vital, don't isolate yourself. My depression hit the end of it's cycle, and yours will too. Get professional help. I had to. You can't do it on your own. I hope I'm not rambling.
You did something I'm so proud of, you got into this group and asked for help. I hope I provided some glimmer. Cyber hugs, Cathleen
