so longing

Posted , 6 users are following.

neutral I feel so alone because of my depression, my husband doesn't help as he goes to the pub,

even tonight Christmas eve he has left me on my own, I feel that I will leave him in the new year

that is if I can find the strength to go through with it.

I am on Mirtazerpine 45mg at night and 20mg Citapram in the morning.

I have talked to my Dr, but she doesn't want to change my meds, I can go out, but I just can't have

a conversation with anyone face to face, so I can't socialize.

Is anybody out there alone too?.

    Sorry to hear how you're feeling.

    How long have you been on the medication? If you're new to the tablets then it will take a while before you start to feel better. But there are other tablets out there if these ones don't help you.

    I have a boyfriend who supports me but I still feel alone a lot of the time as no one can possibly understand how we feel can they? I've spent all day in bed feeling alone. It kind of makes it worse that its Christmas and we feel like we should be out enjoying ourselves and celebrating with family etc, right?

    i hope you r strong enough to leave your the new makes it hard when u cannot socialise.i find it hard too.but we have to face our fears and do it .or things stay the same. best of is very hard but a smile and a hi is sometimes all that is needed .people r not that bad.just make the first step and it builds up confidence.

    Hi Shall. I feel for you as I am in that zone at the moment where you can feel alone in the most crowded of places. it's the nature of the illness but what you are feeling is "normal" when you are depressed. Best thing I find is to try really hard to keep on doing the things you used to do and go with the flow no matter how hard it feels inside. And of course don't beat yourself up about it. There are loads of us out there

    Hi Shall,

    I so empathize with you! I have been depressed for many years and was so alone I used to call it " solitary confinement of my soul" now I am out of it and I think permanently. I never took any medications and one way to alleviate the depression was to go out jogging and swimming regularly without really forcing myself to do it.

    I have never believed that medications was the answer so my way was to put on paper my feeling of the moment or or simply sleeping extra hours....and let nature take its course. I tried counselling few times but somehow found it unsatisfactory as did not feel understood ...

    Perhaps a break from your husband would be a healthy thing to do, it would probably bring you some insights about yourself and your relationship with your husband.....if your feeling is in that direction may be you could give it a try.

    I feel very bad after knowing your situation. but fact is that "There is no drug that will cure you" perfectly.

    My personal suggestion is to divert your mind in something else. Like you may find another interesting activities whenever you feel alone.

    If you love pet then spend your time with it. If you like reading then go and grab your favorite books & start reading.
