Very Blue Today

I've never posted under this topic before, but I need someone to tell me things are going to be ok. I have suffered with depression most of my life-on and off of meds. Currently I am off, just can't afford them at this time. I have so much going on in my life that I feel like I'm in a dark hole and I just want to stay there. My husband had to move out of town for a job-he will be gone for 11 months. My 18 year old son is going to have a baby. My finances are a mess. Most days I feel like I just want to stay in bed and not face the world, but I get up and put a smile on my face and pretend to everyone that all is well. I think all of the pretending is wearing me down. This has just been a bad week for me and I could really use some encouragement from anyone-even strangers. How do you get through all of this?

Re: Very Blue Today

Hi Mak,
I was diagnosed with depression when I was 14, I am 21 now. I haven't been to therapy or taking medication since I was 18 and I've made alot of good improvements without it. I still feel down often, but I get through the days knowing that things can be worse and whatever it is that's bothering me, I can get through. I used to ignore things and think they would just go away. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, so I try to deal with one thing at a time and I'm very open with my family. I talk with them alot about what's going on and they always make me feel better. The other thing that helps me is that I believe in God. I went through a very rough time growing up, causing me to attempt suicide many times. I just look at it like this..the devil puts all these things in my head and trys to bring me back to that point..I won't let him win again, so I keep myself going. I don't know your beliefs, this may sound crazy to you, but that's just how I see it. I keep myself busy and try to keep a positive outlook on things. Perhaps you can make a list of the things that are bothering you and write down what you think the best solutions are to them. If you can't come up with a solution, you can turn to family and friends for help. Just try to take one thing at a time and don't overwhelm yourself. I hope this helped you, take care.
