I am depressed no matter how well my life is going. Im lost. Really really lost. All the time. I just want to die most of the time, and I got great kids and an awesome husband, but I can tell he is wearing thin of this.

did something happen to cause you to feel depressed? did you experience a recent loss? not trying to be nosy here, just trying to better understand your situation. for me, i think i've been depressed my whole life. i just kinda thought of it as just being sad. but i've been truly depressed most of this year, and i know the exact cause.

Ive been depressed since about age 13, but a year ago my ex husband was murdered and since then Ive spiraled down hill. I cant seem to pull myself out. I want to stay medicated and in bed. I havent had a steady job for 7 years due to injuries and it is very difficult to deal with all the bull that comes with it.

Depression can hit anyone, with or without a great family. A good life does not give you some kind of immunization. I wish that non-depressed people could understand this.

On top of that you have had a lot to deal with. Without the depression life would be hard, but with it, well that's just too many strikes, isn't it? You need to be kind to yourself. If it was just a matter of trying harder, none of us would be depressed. I hope you get the help you need because you deserve it. Your family may be great, but you are part of what makes your family great.

Hi Kand, what do you think caused the depression when you were 13? Were you injured at work? Your ex-husbands murder hit you pretty hard?
