HI,
i am glad you got some help.
a lot of us suffer in silence and end up getting worse instead of better.
i have been going to a therapist for several years and it helps a lot .

Not sure I am writing in the right place, I'm new. First, my father had severe depression, and I did not know how to help or reach him. "none of us understood and he did not expect us to". Now my sister is spiralling down with what seems to be the same depression clouded with alcohol and tobacco addiction. Can't convince here that the alcohol is not helping her to find a solution and may interact negatively with the anti-depression medication. How can I reach her? thanks

Frown Re: support group

I've been a member since 2007 but this is really my first post. I am such a severe state of depression for way too long this time that I am searching everywhere for someone to help me.

I've had a lot of losses in my life, including family, friends, finances, beloved pets, etc. I don't have 1 friend. Some were friends for 40 yrs and now they've just moved on as though I never existed. Depression is such a lonely disease.

I've taken many, many different meds and combination thereof, and now nothing seems to work at all. Not able to find a Dr. that has any answers and no one really seems to care. I live in S. Fla. and yesterday I contacted Dept. of Psychiatry at University of Miller School of Medicine in hopes of finding a Dr. that may be able to help me. Still waiting for a return phone call. I really don't have much confidence anymore with the Doctors dealing with mental health. I really don't feel like they have the answers to how to help people that are extremely depressed or what medications to have us take. It's just a guessing game on their part and we suffer through it everytime we have to see someone new, or go off a med and then go on a new med and it just goes on and on and on.

I cry constantly, never smile or laugh or look forward to anthing,or feel any joy or pleasure. I have to go on because I'm an animal advocate and have two cats that I could never leave and to have them end up in a shelter alone and scared. I would rather suffer daily then allow that to happen.

I'm just rambling and this is why I never post.
