Tiny Tears, I read your post of August 27. My daughter was raped and I tried every avenue to get her help. The best advice I got for her was \"One day she may decide she is not a victim, but a survivor. On that day, if it happens, she will be able to go forward.\" You say you do not like to look at yourself in the mirror. I say, don't allow any other person to decide your value in YOUR mind. We are all ignorant, just about different things. You came into this life with nothing, just like everyone else. Depression can cause you to forget your good points and concentrate on your weaknesses. I was fortunate enough to find a loving partner, and you can too! Be genuine, be true to yourself, allow others to notice the love deep within you. Miracles can happen. And I believe you are a survivor, although you may not yet have realised it. And if you are overweight, so what? My partner says she is fat, and I am slim, but I don't care! She is a caring, loving, wonderful girl. And there are plenty of men who just want to care for and protect the love of their life. Smile at your good memories, don't dwell on the bad ones. And look after you. I hate taking medication, but I don't believe I can cope for the moment without it. One day I will get off it, but in the meantime I use Cipramil to keep the depression at bay because I suffer less side effects with it than others I have tried. And I use Valium occasionally to get to sleep, and gradually I am reclaiming my life. Think of who your care about most, and send them a note to say Hi! Their response will help. Good luck, Breezman.
