    Hi unhappy

    There really isn't anything I or anyone can say to make all those horrid and terrible feelings go away - if we could we would that you can be sure of.

    If you register with Patient UK we can give you the link to our chatroom where some people chat about depression and other things.

    Or just keep ;posting your feelings here - believe it or not (IMO) posting about how you feel on here is just as good as any therapy and has helped me immensely.

    Try and stay strong and remember you are not alone.

    Hi all -

    I'm new to this forum and just wanted to say to Vanessa that I am in exactly the same position - and have also been prescribed Fluoxetine.

    My husband of 3 years left me on Boxing Day. We had been together for 15 years, lived together for 9 years and would have been married for 3 years last week. It was the biggest shock of my life and I basically went to pieces.

    I have been taking the tablets for about a month and it does seem to be helping - I never thought that I would be able to say that I'm feeling better, but I am. I still can't imagine life on my own, but I am able to get out of bed in the mornings. It is such a comfort to know that I'm not the only one going through this crap.

    Keep posting Vanessa and let me know how things are going!

    Hi,first time ive been back to this site,i didnt think id have any replies so thanks for the messages.Im not feeling as desperate as i was a few weeks ago,although i cant say im feeling wonderful its a little easier to get through each day.Im not crying constantly anymore even though at times i feel so sad that i almost cant bear it.My ex came back for a week before deciding that he wanted to leave again and i havent heard from him for 2 weeks now.I dont know if i will ever feel happy again,im waiting for the hatred to kick in,then i,ll know im getting better.

    Im having a really bad day today,im struggling to keep it together.I saw my ex driving his car and that has made me feel so unhappy.Its bad enough that our relationship is over after 9 years but he's walked away without a backward glance and that is what hurts the most,its all been for nothing.I feel worthless and pointless.This is the second time this has happened to me,ive spent a total of 18 years with two men who both walked away.What's wrong with me that everyone leaves? If i didnt have my son id just die and there would be no more pain.
