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?

How do you manage to not feel bad about yourself if you can't work because of your anxiety and depression?

Prayer Circle

Prayer Circle

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.

Dealing with symptoms or side effects?

Dealing with symptoms or side effects?

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

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. For all my shortcomings, depression and lack of self esteem. My kids mean the world to me, but they are older now and moving on with their own lives. I'm scared, terrified and afraid to even want to get close to someone male. I don't want just sex, i want a… read more

I am unemployed and with financial struggles, feel the pressure of getting a job overwhelming. i feel like I'm not able to commit to anything because I will fail. My depression takes over, my body hurts and I'm not able to get out of bed. I would just end up losing whatever job I… read more

Do you check your 'team activity'?

Do you check your 'team activity'?

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

How do you cope with negative self perception and feelings of worthlessness?

How do you cope with negative self perception and feelings of worthlessness?

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
