How Do You Find Love Again, When You Have Been Depressed For So Long?

How Do You Find Love Again, When You Have Been Depressed For So Long?

Background info: I've been depressed for over 25 years, was married, and had 2kids. I have been alone for over 16 years now, and can't believe that someone would even want to be with me.

I'm scared, terrified and afraid to even want to get close to someone male. I don't want just sex, i want a relationship. One that isn't one sided, on my… read more

Was Wondering On Anyone's Bad Days Do They Ever Feel Numb Inside?

Was Wondering On Anyone's Bad Days Do They Ever Feel Numb Inside?

Hard to describe this but I mean like does anyone feel numb at times but just carries on with daily life. Like as if you don't want to do anything. You feel nothing but no point explaining to anyone knowing they won't understand as they haven't been through depression and that?

Does Any Of You Exprience Chronic Fatigue That Makes It Hard To Have Enough Energy To Function Properly An Do Things You Once Could?

Hey, do you ever feel that way

Who Suffers From Memory Loss?

Who Suffers From Memory Loss?

I find I forget quite significant things that have happened from the day before. My processing skills are really slow, and I find it really difficult to concentrate and not loose my way in conversations. If someone asks me what they have just said, I can't remember. I can't follow TV programmes and films, I can't concentrate on them long enough for them to makes sense.

Yes it is certainly scary
It frustrates me that ppl don’t understand that you can’t process or retain things like you used to.
