My Depression Is Very Profound, It's Affecting My Relationships, What Can I Do?

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Work on your depression first then worry about relationships unless they are patient-therapist. Relationships of a serious nature want healthy participants. You are not healthy in depression. That is the first thing you need. It is like getting oxygen first, then help others.

Thanks you for your advice. I have tried a lot of things other than medication. Nothing seems to help very much. Hopefully, they will be coming up with different treatments soon! Have a blessed day!

Hi there. I’ve been diagnosed with major depression and GAD for twenty years. Therapy, meds, and meditation have put me on remission many times or at least have kept me stable for. The meditation is a HUGE part of it because it brings you back to the present moment when your head is racing. The meditation I do is called Shamatha. Very easy, nothing esoteric, really just breathing exercises that make you focus on your breath and what to do when thoughts barge in, how to let them go. It does take work and practice. DO please look into it. Most people that try it find it beneficial. Be well!

Be honest with the people you mix with. Tell them that's what you're experiencing at the moment. People who have experienced depression will sympathize. People who haven't, will at least be educated.
