Honey...I'm so sorry you're dealing with this depression. I wish I knew what to suggest, but I'm not the best person to help with this. I'll say a prayer for you and I'm sure others will have some suggestions. I'll be around if you want to talk, though.
Hi Hun! Thank you. Just to know there is someone here..well, it helps. This is harder than getting off the drugs.
This is part of that ugly psychological withdrawal we all go through. I've been lucky, I guess...I get anxiety, but never depression. I wish I knew what to tell you to do about it. I've only been really depressed for more than a few hours once in my life and that lasted for years...it was situational, not clinical, but I chose to deal with it by taking drugs...hence my addiction! If I had just faced it and dealt with it, I would not be where I am today. The cause of the depression was my Daddy's diagnosis and subsequent death from terminal cancer. That one really threw me. My Mom is 78 and slowly subcombing to Alzheimer's. As close as I was to my Dad, I'm even closer to my Mom. I know I have to be prepared, but how do you prepare yourself??
Anyway...I'm talking about me, and you're the one with the problem right now. What can I do for you, if anything? I'll be here for a while, so please let me know if I can help, okay??
