I know i have posted on this forum before and i am sorry that i keep coming back but i do need some kind words and verbal help.
I just feel so down all of the time and i cannot get my head above water.
I feel so lonely and i feel like my confidence has just gone altogether.
I have a few close friends and i am sure they are sick and tired of me being so dismal all of the time. I know i have got to one of my friends as she is visible backing away from me. Isnt around when i most need to just have a chat and i feel like screaming cos we used to be so close.
Dont say make new friends as it isnt easy when you are over 60, a parent and a grand parent. Long story but i havent spoken to my daughter in over one year and she wont let me see my grand kids which doesnt help. I have retired and my husband is still working - got another 3 years to go before he retires. But the days seem long and i feel so lonely. He knows how i feel and just says i have a lot to be grateful for - which i know and i dont know why i should feel this way. But people who have depression will know that sometimes there is no rhymn or reason for it all. All i know is that i am so down and lonely.
I have steered away from Drs and medication up to now but maybe i should go along and have a chat. Any advice would be welcome.
Thank you for reading.
