You are not "just a whiner" Woody. Depression is a very real illness. And one of the worst things about it is that from the outside, it is so hard to understand.
It could also really be that there is some other reason for your feeling so badly, maybe a nutritional deficieny or imbalance? What kinds of things have you been tested for? Sometimes things go undetected for a long time!
If it IS depression, yes that can cause physical symptoms too of vcourse... but Woody please don't give up! If you are suicidal do call a crisis line or emergency, ok? Life as such, even though you feel exhausted by it right now, life as such is good. It is the pain you are in right now that makes you feel so badly. Plus, depression that bad guy brings along another symptom, which is hopelessness, the feeling like ti will never go away. it does though. Sometimes, yes, it takes quite a while. But we never, never know how things will turn in life. I have had moments where i thought, oh this has been going on for too long now, i am completely stuck here, how could it ever get better? Oh I wouldn't have believed it if somebody had told me how much happiness I would experience again!
I am glad you came to this board Woody. People here really do understand. There is another board called 'depression", maybe you can relate to some of the posts there?
Keep posting ok... understanding is so important during the dark times.
By the way what antidepressants and other therapies have you used so far?

Kathrin
