Look at people's profiles and see what they are feeling and see is someone hits a cord with you and your situation. Leave them a post and see what happens from there. People are here to help you and be there as a shoulder to lean on and vent off of but we can only help if you are honest. I came from a bad home too~but I learned I have to open if I want the same thing from others. Good Luck
My husband died suddenly in February and now I'm a single mom of two. My mom's living with me but now it's causing problems with my in laws, who don't like my parents. My sis-in-law is telling me that my parents have to accept that her parents don't like them, but will be civil. Why should my parents have to accept that when they are willing to bend over backwards to make my in laws feel comfortable? My mom-in-law is still holding a grudge against my mom from early March when I was in the hospital and my Mom wants her to feel comfortable but I can't ask my mom to give stuff up for my in laws. People tell me I'm not stuck in the middle, but I am. I don't want to kill myself, but if something doesn't change, I'm thinking about it. And if I tell anyone I know, they'll freak out. I'm tired of being watched, I'm tired of being worried about, I'm tired of other people's problems being my own, I'm tired of the whole world. I just want to lock myself in my room. Or if the world would just end, that would suit me just fine, too.
I don't necessarily need anyone to talk to, I just wanted to dump my emotions to anyone who isn't related to me or knows me personally.
for as long as i can remember i go thru a routine of being perfectly fine for a few months and then drop suddenly feeling worthless for atleast a week or two, i can remember being about 12 and cutting my wrists not to kill myself but because i felt nothing and wanted to experience what it would be like to die. i seem to other ppl to be wonderfuly happy and bubbly but it feels like i have two of me. i am not crazy i can control my thoughts and realise consequences. i can recall on quite a few occasions where i have hurt myself to get out of things the most recent was about 3 months ago. i dont want to tell anyone because its stupid and it passes within a week or two and i would feel silly to tell ppl and then look like a mental case when i feel better in a few weeks. i own my own home and have a wonderful girlfriend who if she knew would freak out and i dont want to hurt her.i am quite low at the moment and normally only think about killing myself in a non-serious way but sometimes i would if i didnt have guilt for leaving my partner on her own.
I happen to actually have a lot of time to dedicate to help MedHelp users. I have many tips for depression. I have a good understanding of psychology that i got from video/audio lectures from from the MIT OCW 9.00 Introduction to Psychology, MIT OCW 9.01 Neuroscience and Behavior and psychology books and i usually respond fast so feel free to send me a private message if you feel the need.
Please consider that I am not a therapist and in no way i can replace the hard work of a qualified therapist you happen to see in person and talk to rather than write or chat to but i offer this help as friendly support.
Hi. We are all willing to talk with you and do our best to understand what you are feeling...we are not therapist here but we care. It is hard for someone to understand another's feelings if they have not been "where you are". Please feel free to send me a message anytime, I will do my best to listen and relate. God Bless, Hey Jude.
I just wish I had someone to talk with, I can't seem to get in a good mood, motivation is not happening.
I am disabled and home alone a lot. My husband is around but he is working and I really need to talk with someone who has some times for me. April will be 5 years since I drove anywhere. I can't walk no more than a few feet at a time. So I cannot go for walks or anything like that. I try reading novels and I do enjoy my books, and I am crocheting Christmas gift already cause it makes me feel good to give things I made to family. But you can only do that so much too.
Well there is a little bit about me,
I feel stupid writing this to anyone, I know I am lucky and have a beautiful husband and kids. Don't know why I am so depressed. I do take antidepressants everyday. I am 47 and been disabled since I was 37.
I am so sorry to hear we're all going through the same thing.
I thought the way I was feeling after I started getting extremely sick last year would go away, but it hasn't it's only gotten worse. It's been so much at times I tell my husband I wish the dr's would have let me die during my surgery instead of bringing me back.
I wrote this whole long thing in my journal then feel bad because others have it so much worse than I do, but I just don't know how much more I can handle.
I can't go to the doctor or get meds again until June because our insurance messed up our policy and my deductible started over and now I owe $6,000 instead of $3,000; and I have a ton of stuff I've been going to drs for and now can't get treated unless I pay everything. I can't walk or exercise because of my heart & other health problems, besides I'm just too tired and sick to even want to. I used to craft quite a bit in my spare time, but I can't concentrate enough to even pull together a project to start.
I'm angry, irritable and can't stand to even be around myself most of the time, why would my family and friends want to. I've asked myself why me so many times in the past months I can't count, I had enough on my plate before now all this just overwhelms me.
i am 24 and have been in bed for the last 2 days as i could not face getting up, i punish myself over the smallest things for days i feel so guilty and can't seem to stop, i feel really down for no reason and i cry through self hate. i feel like i'm never good enough but mostly i feel so ashamed for feeling like this. i don't know whats wrong with me and i'm too embarrassed to tell anyone or ask for help. can anyone help me...
please take this advice,firstly its been 5 months since you posted your comment so i don't know if your recovered or still enduring your depressive symptoms,i hope and Pray to God,that this message will find you fully recovered,if not then DONT BE AFRAID, sorry to say you made the biggest mistake when you stopped your medication,i started suffering dep.. in 1997,i took seroxat for approx 6-7 months,and had just split up with the phsyco maniac tha caused my depression,and i felt re born,like i'd been in a dark tunnel all these years,but then i made friends.went to bars everyday and not carry my med with me,and very often my friend would tell me to sleep over and i did ,and i noticed that the less tabs i took ,the better i felt,so i stopped taking them,in the same week i met a student for phsyciatry who warned me to get back on them asap,or i'll have a huge relapse that would be much harder toget out of....well i ignored what he said,and went off to Australia my home country just for a holiday BUT 3 weeks later i had a relapse just as the dr had said and spent most of my holiday in bed or another world...i am telling you this not to scare you,but if your still suffering these symptoms have they been diagnosed???? are you back on med for it???? never stop taking medication without dr'd permission ,unless theyre bad side affects,ohh and i now suffer chronic depresion.bipolar disorder,obsessive compulsive disorder,extreme panick attaks and anxiety,which have lead to FIBROMIALGIA (fibromyalgia) and EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE PERSONALITY,THIS DOES NOT MEAN THATS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPN TO YOU.....IM WARNING YOU TO BE CAREFULL SO YOU DONT END UP LIKE ME.... OHH AND IN THE MEATIME THE LOVE OF MY LIFE COMMITED SUICIDE,AND I JUST GO HYSTERICAL WHEN I THINK OR DREAM ABOUT HIM,I WANT HIM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE BEST WITH YR HEALTH MAY GOD WATCH OVER YOU......
i know exactly how this person feels... i am 17 years old and for the past four years iv been feeling depressed. It started off as just something small but now i have suicidal thoughts more than i should (nearly everyday i contemplate it) i have attempted once two years but i became too afraid to swallow my pills and spat em all back up. I feel like i dont have anyone to talk to, my mother took me to the doctor a couple months ago and the doc said i gotta see a therapist but my parents wont let me go. they just tell me that i make my own happiness so its my fault that i get sad about stuff. i just want someone to talk to so i can let out what im feeling, iv tried telling friends but i dont want anyone to worry about me and what is going on... IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO WILL TALK TO ME PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN VENT. JUST LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY.
I had a rumor going around about a friend of my husbands and mine, Sopposidly first hand, This is not the first time for rumors. basically some of the people we hang with really hurt my husband and myself,Saying I'm sleeping with this and that. I'll tell you what I HAD strong shoulders but not any more,Then it gets thrown back on me for saying what I heard never my my relations ship I've been in for 27 yrs.Now after some many I'll strart lasching out, but people those people now created a monster on a mission. to set everyone rightI know understand the older we get the more bitter we get, I don't see any thing pretty anymore, I see uglynees,My life has been a living hell for over 2 yrs. and before this relationship, I could write a book that would shake women up and flood there eyes for tears for years to come, Especially all the physical pain and bruising.I had a good life it has left me for at least 10 yrs. What's the pont of all this,It's all BS,I"m done,It doesn't make sense to be here.There must be purpose.I have NONE
My aniamals are the onlything keeping me on this earth.Noone I mean Noone will take care of them like me andI'm sorry man(humans) can't be tusted with simle daily routines just those commited
I feel alone in this world as well. The only relative I have is my husband who is 33 years older then me and I often think what I'd do if he suddenly passed. We are very close to each other but he thinks my anxiety/depression is all just bull*** so he doesn't understand what I'm going through.
People at work have such high expectations of me but I feel like I can't meet them and they'll fire me. I suffer from adrenal exhaustion (years of stimulant overuse and stress) and everything makes me tired. I have a myriad of other health issues and it seems unfair to suffer so much....
Sorry for the rant....just needed to vent. Have a great day everyone!
Don't feel as if you are the only one. I have no family left that cares about me.
I have to see to the needs of my handicapped daughter. I feel alone and depressed.
As the cold weather and short days start, it gets worse and worse. I am so tired of
being broke all the time.
hope I get cancer for Xmas Life *****,dealing with things alone is to hard,no one wants to hear negative stuff from anyone and am not sure what to do.My thoughts are starting to freak me out,ahhh giving up seems real easy bout now,
I ws diognised of bipolar 2 yrs ago. The problem is I live in nigeria and its not easy to find the right help here. I'm married with two kids. I would really want to go to South Africa for a proper treatment butt my kids must have a stable life. My husband dpesnt trust me anymore bcoz I make promises and I always break them. So I'm stuck I'm afraid to discuss my state with him becoz it just put more strain on our marriage that is shaky. Sometimes I drink myself to sleep but the worst thing is when I wake up I feel worse than ever.
can't beat talking to try and get off anxiety and depression best medicene in world don't think you are only one as we all go through this bit of pain but that's life you will come through with flying colours pity your boyfriend doesn't support you.
My ex girlfriend called me nuts which is heartless as If I was suicidal this could send me over edge especially as more males actually go through with suicide it than threaten it.
Try exercise a hobby something to concentrate on and take your mind away from thinking about you !
If anybody needs someone to talk to I am always available to talk to. If you would like to talk to me just ask me for my number and I will give it to you. Just let me know. You can also text me if you want.

hey, my names Mat, i'm 25, and have been trying to deal with my depression for 3 or 4 months now. i've always been a small guy but in the last little bit ive lost 10 or so pounds cause i cant eat. it all started when my girlfriend of 8 years left me for another guy out of the blue. we're back together now, but shes always acting weird around me and i think shes still seeing the other guy. she just gets upset with me when i try to talk to her about how i feel, and shes the only person i have to talk to. everydays a struggle, how do you think i should deal with this? thanks for your time.
We have a rental house that is going into foreclosure and my good friend thats renting she and her family will have to leave. I feel like I have let her down. I have been keeping this from my husband. Every one says to tell him. But I cant talk to him. Im affraid of him and I dont want my head taken off.I have limited options as to where I can go. Im depressed and worried. I dont sleep any more. My mom wants me to stay with her but we dont get along. I dont want to end up staying in my van. I have dogs to worry about and have no idea what is best for them. I have been thinking about suicide a lot. I just dont want to go on. I will loose every thing. I have messed up and got us in debt and my husband was not very forgiving and now I have messed up so bad with the house that I know he will throw me out. Instead of facing him I would rather take my life. I dont believe in God any more. My fear is that i will go to hell. The depression and stress is so hard to deal with any more. The only thing keeping me going is that Im not sure how to end my life.Trying very hard to figure out how to do it.No one to talk to. Im so sorry for what ive done.
anyone that would acctualy have time to talk to me....
ive been depressed before and i always put on a fake smile, im not good at anything ive tried ending it but i failed i went to a treatment center in loma linda and that didn't even work its at the point if i was to die i wouldnt care i need someonre to tell me my life has meaning...
"I don't know how to thank you DR ANTOGAI, you truly came through for me when you with your love spell. I finally hit the lottery last month Friday thanks to your lottery spell and my man came back on Mother's Day. When I opened that door, I felt like I could have fainted when I saw him holding a bouquet of roses and wishing me Happy Mother's Day. I haven't seen him in 5 months and you did that love spell 5days ago. That is fast!..We talked a while and he came clean and told me about the other woman and he broke up with her. He really wants us to be together and he told me how much he misses me and wants to be with me.. thank you for your help ***@**** you are really the best.
Jeff, life is precious and no matter what you are here for a reason. Everybody is. You have a special gift that no body has and probably not even you know what that will be. life is just beginning for you and you need to take it one day at a time . Don't think what happened yesterday just think of today.You have to understand reasons in what is making you feel like you have to end your life? Is it really going to solve your problem? I don't think so. You are only going to create grieve to the people who loves you .Go to counseling or call your local mental health they will help you.
I may be only thirteen, but I feel exactly how you feel almost all the time. I always feel alone and I feel like I can't talk to others how I truly feel inside. Sometimes I just want to run away or disappear, with my true love by my side when that happens, even thoughhen I think about things like that I know that most of them are childish, foolish whims of mine.Telling the people I care about that this is how I feel... it would hurt too much and I just feel like I can't do it. I just want to disappear.
But, two sad people must stick together. Whatever it is that you're feeling, even though I'm very young, I am very willing to listen and I want you to know that I'm here for you! You can talk to me anytime. (:
I know the feeling, I am 27 i suffer from panic disorder and anxiety, i constantly stress, go thru crying spells and depression. I also find that i loose all rationality and flip out like a crazed maniac. I love the hell out of my boyfriend, and at times i get so afraid of losing him because of my frequent depression and mood swings. They have become more severe over the past 4 months, and the medication i was prescribed gave me a whole new set of problems, difficulty remembering things, headaches, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness and drowsiness, and not to mention decrease in sexual desire.I am tired of pills, so i'm taking my chances of going a more natural approach - by taking vitex. within 3 months time i will create a post notating any changes. Life can be hard when you have emotional pain, i'd much rather suffer physical pain over mental emotional pain any day. I often feel like i've died inside and i'm this empty vessle incapable of being happy wondering the earth longing for the joy everyone else seems to have. BUT, i am not ready to give up yet, neither should you. I've gone thru too much crap to just give up, even though i feel like it. Hit me up if you need someone to listen to you, give you an emotional boost - i'm here and i understand the depression all too well. I am constantly battling terrible nightmares, childhood abuse, panic disorder and anxiety, mood swings, depression, and many of the same symptoms brought on by PMDD. i am more than happy to talk to you any time if i can offer any consolation to you. i hope you feel better, take care.

Hi I am Wolf " LoneWolfSilentCry "
I have had this so called freaking disease
for over 21 years , the Medical World calls it " Psoriasis "
but i call it for what it really is " HELLonEARTH " !
I have Plaque Psoriasis from head to toe , i have been
through everything that the Medical World has to offer.
From all orals and topicals to PUVA and UV Rays all
light treatments and all creams and ointments.
I have been through Embrel and Humeria and Remicade
and Stelera , and nothing WORKS !
i have been to Mayo Clinic 3 times and the UofA and all of
them tell me that i have been through everything that the
Medical World has too offer there is no more help for me .
And now my Skin Doctor and i are banging our heads
against a brick wall as what to do next which we both
know that there aint no " NEXT " !
I now am no longer on any meds due to the fact that
nothing works for me , and my Skin Doctor agrees ,
and now that i am no longer on any meds he said within
6 months i will feel like that i am cold all the time and be
red from head to toe and my Plaque Psoriasis will be 100 %
worse than they already are he told me that in all his of his
practice he has seen nothing like it , he said that there is
one other person that is just as bad as me in the state of Arizona .
Take a look at my pics in my profile .
I leave you with this question :
How Long Must 1 Suffer Before 1 Says Enough Is Enough ?
Hi Wolf, I am so sorry you have to go thru this. Please try to remember that the Psoriasis does not define who you are. Try to do some things that will keep you occupied, a distraction. You are still you no matter what. Unfortunately we don't get to pick and choose some of the things that happen to us.
You said stopping the meds will make you worse. Don't give up, stay on the meds, at least then it won't get worse. Their may not be a remedy now but that doesn't mean there won't be one in the future. Keep trying and don't think "Enough is Enough".
Fing something that will make you happy. Find things to do so your mind is not on your condition.
Have you seen any alternative doctors? Hang in there, Crystal
I'm 13 years old and I have been thinking about killing myself but haven't really attempted it and I've already tried cutting myself but my mom has seen and said if she seen it again shell put me in a mental home ..... I really need help cause I've been crying for 2 hours cause sites are saying I'm highly depressed can someone please help?
You need to see a doctor, a psychiatrist would be best but it usually takes some time to get in to see one. I would see my family doctor right away, they work with depression quite a bit and make an appointment with a psychiatrist. You can get treatment from your family doctor until you can get in to treatment with a psychiatrist.
Hi Nina, My heart goes out to you. I'm so sorry you are feeling so bad. The very first thing I want to say is, killing yourself is not the answer. There are other answers out there you just need to find a healthy one. Talking to a Therapist and even your school counselor which I would recommend first because you can see him/her tomorrow. I worked in school clinic and we even referred students to the counselor. They can really help you and get the ball rolling with you, your parents and then a Therapist and dr. These are serious emotions, wanting to end your life and cutting yourself. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
Have you shared your feelings with your mom or dad? Did you tell your mom why you cut and how you were feeling?
I'm wondering if your moms reaction to your cutting was out of fear because her initial reaction sounded like panic. Sitting her down and explaining what your feelings are about might help you both.
I don't know what's going on in your life right now that's made you feel so bad but talking to someone could save your life and also help you to feel better. I hope you can talk to your parents but if for some reason you can't then either
way, Please go see the counselor at your school tomorrow.
Your at an age where your hormones may need to be checked by your dr. They can play havoc on your moods and thinking if they are a little off. Something important to consider. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Your parents love you and care about you. We care what happens to you, Crystal
i feel what your saying i just feel lke i cant talk to anyone unless their understanding maybe by talking to each other we can help we other feel better about living instead of living for nothing well atleast thats how i feel an idont know why an its killing me slowly
I take pills for depression, and panic attacks, I have been to rehab, I have talked to counselors, but when I come home, I face the bills I cant pay, I face the lonely days and night I have gone through for the past 5 years, and now they are getting worse. But no one can place someone in your life to help you. the other night I had a panic attack, laid in my floor and cried until it finally eased up. but there was no one to help me, no one to talk to. being alone is hell. Now I feel as if I am losing control, to the point I really want to hurt someone, or even myself. I can find not reason to live like this any more
i know i ya'll because i been going the same thing everyday and feel like am not part of the family and that no one like me or even try to and every time i try to tell them i feel like some thing is wrong and that so i know how ya'll feel like and every thing i hope that we all get along together with our family
