Hopeless

Posted , 5 users are following.

Evening guys,

I have made a previous post before of how hopeless I feel,and to be frank I feel even worse.

I am going to start therapy/counselling soon but I feel that won’t work on me (don’t believe in that type of stuff) 

I’m also trying some antidepressants for the THIRD time as the other two have no effect on me.

I am really scared that this is going to be my whole life and that I will never get out of this illness and frankly I don’t want to live my life like this.

I feel really desensitised at the moment and honestly just don’t care about anything.I am not doing well at work either and generally feel I’m going to be sacked.

Can someone tell me that they got through this?

     Take vitamin B supplements liquid supplements work better and I believe you will feel a lot better that's probably why the anti-depressant you don't work because you're missing those vitamins and check your testosterone levels and try to detox your whole body do the Colean Cleans after colean cleans  take probiotics   Do you live near a Spanish supermarket they have the best vitamin supplements liquid supplement their call distress plus and they got other ones to give it a try you will feel a lot better Start with the Colean cleanse and almost forgot get a massage try to get all the knots out of your body then take the Colean cleans

    Tim thank you for writing into us. Tim I think that we all have times that are very hard that you are going through. I try not to let myself look ahead I try to keep my butt and I head in the same place. In other words wherever my head is think about what I'm doing and try not to worry about tomorrow because it causes anxiety for me. I and so proud of you that you are trying therapy it takes lots of courage to do that! You are strong not everyone can do that and work on the issues causing the depression and anxiety. If one antidepressants did not work for me I tried another. I first tried Zoloft it didn't work so I tried Prozac and I am telling you it and therapy changed my life. But I took my tired behind in there no matter what. I am so much happier, calmer, more peaceful. Keep writing us we care. Diane

    Hi Tim - sorry to read of your situation. Unfortunately there is no one-size-fits-all with medications for depression. Our depressions are as unique as we are ourselves. It might takes several attempts to find what works for you. It is perfectly understandable that you would feel despondent given the frustration of past attempts and the prospect of further disappointment. Part of that feeling is the illness. It took four different attempts and different meds for me to find some peace with the program. I would urge you to keep trying - what else is there?

    One point you make is that you are feeling desensitised at the moment and don't care about anything. Could I suggest you ride that and treat the journey as something you observe? Something that needs to be explored and understood and that you are a participant in your future? BTW meds are not necessarily for life. It's a tool used with therapy to balance us so we can work through any underlying issues. We are always here to talk.

    I started a new therapy class yesterday and absolutely dreaded going.Although I didn’t participate much I did find it interesting and am going to give it another go next week. This depression and whole feeling of hopelessness is draining but you will learn to cope x

    You're definitely not alone in how you're feeling. I'm glad you're giving therapy a go even if it doesn't work at least you can say you've tried & move on to something else. Theres always other options to tr,. I've had 4 different AD's & therapy twice. I completely understand I feel absolutely nothing not sad or angry or upset or happy just nothing at all I'm numb to everything but tbh it's helping me cope at the moment. Don't worry about your job there will always be others, just look after yourself first. It does get better just takes time & you can always come & talk to us.
