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?
I really struggle with this and feel guilty and worthless sometimes and my life feels pointless.
Prayer is very powerful when it is purposeful and specific. Would anyone else think maybe a prayer circle would help, if we started one? Please let me know.
This is my own personal experience... I had been taking a low dose of Seroquel for about 2 years, feeling very depressed and low, my psychiatrist decided to take me off Seroquel I was prescribed Bupropion. I feel like a lot of the symptoms that I was accrediting to depression, were side effects. Extreme fatigue, grogginess, difficulty focusing. If I went to a depressive mind set I would be consumed by suicidal thoughts. Another thing... I have a severe neck injury, I have… read more

I just wondered who checks their team activity?
Reason I ask is, a lot of my team members never comment/like/hug posts I put up, even though they are in contact with me in other ways quite often.
For those who don't know how . . . click on the 3 grey bars at the top left of your page, just under where it says mydepressionteam, this will give you a choice of things, the first of which is 'activity'. If you click on that it will take you to all activity and you can then choose 'my… read more
Looking retrospectively at my life, I notice that from the age of 15 right up to my late 30's that I had a very negative sense of myself. I think we all know what I'm talking about here; anyone who suffers with a serious mental illness like depression (and it's variants) knows the debilitating feelings that well up and how they flow on to affect every aspect of our lives. We end up feeling isolated, unloved/unloveable, and ultimately… read more
