MY 2nd post
 
Thanks for the welcome trg247, Carsam, Sannah, ChaosAD, jujubeez725, tealite77.... I was very surprised at the welcome I rec'd b/c automatically figured everyone would be clicky, so thanks! I've been crashing lately b/c I took myself off my meds a few weeks back & just started Cymbalta, hope for good results in the next couple of weeks. I've been in denial about needing meds so I'm trying to become more educated and connected with others too. I'm turning a new leaf with DEALING with my depression thus my username positivity17, (17's my lucky number/birthdate). Just trying to do whatever I can to lead a happy, productive life and I'll keep trying for improvement.

You are so welcome, Positivity!
:wave:
There are some nice, helpful people here. It's so wonderful that you're "turning over a new leaf" and giving yourself a username that fits what you're doing.

Keep on working on and through your depression.... you've already made steps in the right direction! :D ;)

Sannah: I'm having an incredible day today even if I had to force myself from bed. Just got back from a 4 mile walk which is something I'm trying to do everyday-still got that extra winter weight on!! I lost my job in December so I'm trying to fill up my days and stay busy. Been seriously reaching out to people instead of letting myself isolate, forcing myself to go out and do things that I really have no interest in. Today the depression has somewhat lifted so I enjoy these good times as much as I can.

I've read some of your posts and have gotten alot from them. Do you have little tricks that you use to deal with depression? I notice that a lot of people that post on here are very hard on themselves and I can relate b/c when I'm down I feel so much negativity. A few months ago I was in such a desperate state that there's only one way to go and that's up!!! Do you have a lot of ups & downs? Does it become easier??

juju: Thanks!!

Hi Positivity.....Great to see you sounding so "Positive";)

I think its awesome that you are reaching out to people. I know alot of my mom's depression is because she has only myself and my dad to talk to. She doesnt feel comfortable socializing..it's really hard for her. Which affects her self esteem....which triggers her depression...and so you know how that goes...

Stick around this place...you'll get lots of great advice...meet some good people.....I think this place is what you make of it. I really think you can pick just about anybody on this board, and you can connect with them. Because I've not seen anyone who is not welcoming and open to share their stories.

Keep up the great attitude!!!

Positivity, you sound like you are doing a lot of helpful things for yourself with such a winning attitude. Actually, I suffered from anxiety, never depression, but I come here because the issues are the same (the issues that I dealt with I see people have here). This would be my one trick - deal with your issues that are causing the depression.
