    Re: depression

    Youve got to get to the root of the depression, and examine it to even begin to feel well. I have experienced it, and I do understand that with some people it is chemical. To me, the best medicine is having trusted people to talk to to help sort out feelings. I hope you have that available to you.

    Its good that you shared how you feel. And its not a problem. I wish the sun would shine there for you, and that you could take a walk. Watch the movie
    Love Actually, or The Full Monty. You will feel better.

    Have either of you tried meditation, it may help, it may not.....
    If you go to youtube, search 'guided meditations'.... try it, you never know it may help.

    Do reach out to other people and don't isolate yourself. Go see your doctor again and see if you need to change or adjust your medication.

    I'm no doctor. I'm no expert on depression. Just a friend who cares.

    Jimbo,

    A friend of mine just told me about taking magnesium for fibromyalgia. It has been my experience that many of my friends who suffer from depression have fibromyalgia also. Look it up. Maybe it would help.

    Re: depression

    I have suffered depression. My illness was psychological and it came to a head when I was 20. The underlying cause occurred in my very early childhood (about 2 - 3 years old) when I was subjected to something bad enough for my brain to block the memory. I find that even now I have a poor memory. I also find it hard to focus for any length of time before my mind wanders off.
    Over the years, especially since it came to a head, I have gradually overcome the various fears that have depressed me. But it has taken a long time. The last lesson was a particularly bitter pill. The lesson was all but cancelled out by what I lost in the process.
    The psychiatrist I was put under when I was 20 put me off psychiatrists completely. Instead of getting better, I ended up trying to commit suicide three times. I ended up in the zombie's ward. I signed myself out in the end. I no longer trust psychiatrists.

    The problem with depression is finding out what is at the bottom of it. Once you find that out, then half the battle is won.
    While working with the psychiatrist, take matters into your own hands. Learn about depression. Ask the psychiatrist what is underlying yours.
    Think about what you love and enjoy most in life and work on or towards these. Keep a diary of your thoughts and how you feel (perhaps using FG's Journal section). On those days that you feel more yourself, think about what you have been doing and whether these contributed towards your feeling better. From what point did you feel better. By focussing on the matter, the subconscious will take over even if you give up with the activity. But the subconscious will suddenly and unexpectedly pop up with a suggestion you can check out and work on.
    Most importantly, hang in there.

    Yes Betty I have,yes it helps but i stuggle with relaxing and conentrating
    most of the time im wound up like a dozen half hitches,

    after reading the other post i feel so deaply for them, i no toa certain point
    what they are going thu but everytime i read some one elses problems
    it makes me feel so selfish, my problems dont even come close
    we could do with a Depression section for us all, a chat section would
    be better, i feel it helps talkin,
    I havent many friends and live alone, my best friend is 60miles
    away and suffers her self as well as going thu a bad break up,
    nothing to do with me...so its hard for to be there 4 me and vise versa
