First, are you seeing a psychiatrist? It is important to see the specialist in any field. So many people see a general practitioner who does not refer to a psychiatrist and tries to treat.
Second, call your doctor's office and tell them how awful you feel. They may have some answers for you.
Third, ask your psychiatrist if he/she will refer you for individual and group therapy.
Good luck to you.

I have struggled with the same thing. Sometimes it helps just to have somebody to talk to. Even if its a stranger. Reply here if you just need to tell someone to tell how you feel. I will give you my email and phone number. Good luck.

Thanks; yes i'm seeing a therapist. I'm taking meds for it. Just don't understand why this has happened to me. I know there are others who suffer from depression. My husband doesn't understand. And it's not easy to explain. I feel like I'm in a hole. Trying to dig myself out. Thanks for the encouragment. And kind words.

Sure. After getting injured on the job a doctor put in a request to Workers Comp for me to be evaluated by a specialist for depression. I saw her for a few years and she tried every pill, and every cocktail of pills, that she could think of. I was one of just two other patients that she had at the time with medication-resistant depression.

I gave up trying to find help for it. I've had it all my life, anyway, but on record I was diagnosed all those years ago as being in a vegetative state of severe clinical depression. It felt like not only was I down in a deep dark hole, but like a boulder was over top of it.

I battle it all of the time, but all those years ago I'd lost who I used to be due to physical disablement, and adjusting to it was real hard. I'm still constantly adjusting. What I have trained myself to do is to try to not allow any negative thoughts into my mind. Once they come in, I try flushing them out immediately with a positive thought.

I pray that you get relief soon. It's a monster to fight, for sure, but many people recover. My analogy of describing what it feels like when it tries taking me over is that it's like a clear glass of water with a drop of ink added to it. Depression happens to run on the paternal side of my family.

Pamper yourself and get well soon.

Do you drink?
Most drinkers don't realize that the depression that follows comes as much as 72 hours later. Comes so late that they don't correlate the connection, so they get drunk again. Vicious cycle.
Not accusing, trying to help.

' No I do not drink. I can really relate to hourglass's post. Being injured with some handicap. Not being able to do things I have always done. Even small task is difficult. Not being able to get around much. But thanks for you're input.

I think the depression was in the 1930s.

You need to know that there are ups and downs in life. I have been so low down. Deaths and actually so poor i was starving, lost like 50 pounds. Sad hard pitiful times. Now i am so happy and so blessed. I have a husband who loves me and i get to stay home and raise my sweet baby girl. I'm so happy it hurts. You push threw and the more you talk to god the better u will feel. Just talk to him about anything, everything.
