    hi

    i can say that most under-depression feel lost just exactly the way you feels it that how being depressed is all about.The best thing about it and the only way you can save yourself from such a feeling is being open to whoever you trust most and seeking medical attention you Win this fight we can all win this fight with proper guidance and support from the loved one

      Hi senior a week ago I'd of disagreed with you and said no nobyou don't open yourself to anyone ever it leaves you open to attack

      However someone has come along and knocked me on my butt ive hidden parts of myself away from everyone in my past my posts have always said no you don't trust anyway they will hurt you it's just a matter of time I'm not a stupid person not some one that chases or indulges in fantasy I'm strict level headed over think things look for flaws in ppl I do it it's part of my condition

      Wow ya know what I don't feel like that at all I know a deep know this person couldn't or wouldn't hurt me every it would hurt them as much your right your advice is spot on you need to trust not everyone no but you need to find that one person that you know you would never hurt and would never hurt you that someone your totally at peace with

    Hi Julie. Ive had anxiety for a long time but only recently experienced depression and had no clue what to do or how i was ever going to come through it. Couldnt sleep, eat, think, just like a robot going through the motions hour to hour, hoping it will pass at any minute. Ive gardened for 2 days, joined this forum which im finding very helpful as i dont feel so alone and 'weird'. Keep talking, keep eating, keep getting up each day. x

    Has anyting started it? any change in meds, routine, something ahppened? i came off codeine after 21 years and wham! xx the brain is a very clever little thing so remember it needs occupying, when the dark cloud is overhead and all those weird thoughts appear, find something to do. Hot bath, gardening, walking, ironing, chatting on here, music on you tube. ANYTHING xx
