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 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 relationship. One that isn't one sided, on my… read more

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 ½ 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 been… read more

High Sex Drive

High Sex Drive

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my message, I am at a point of being desperate and don’t know what the solution is.

I have suffered with depression all my adult life (I am 31) and have had periods where I have been perfectly in control with medication.

However when I am not in control my sex drive is dangerously high. I have been in a (generally) happy relationship for 13 years but in the past 18 months since turning 30 I have been uncontrollable. I still love my boyfriend very… read more

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
I feel really heavy often and I lack the energy to even converse with people
When I play sports I run out of breath very quickly and I used to be a competitive athlete with amazing cardio.
I've done all the tests out there and keep going back to my GP and my doc what else can we test and do about it.
Of course all th tests came back negative. It's been lasting for about 3 years now and is so debilitating. I also feel slow and sluggish often.

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.

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.

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 team activity'… read more
