I am feeling so DEPRESSED. This is not like me. I have 4 wonderful children, a roof over my head and everything that we need. I don't know what has come over me. I feel like crying all the time. Nothing makes me happy anymore. I am looking for reasons to start fights. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything.
This is not the person I really am. I don't think about killing myself. I love my children to much to put them through that. I Just want..... I dont know what I want. I feel like this is never going to end. I want out of this slump. I feel like if I can just fake being happy then I will be. But so far not working. I have always been the person everyone comes to for advice but now it seems like I have pissed everyone off that has ever been close to me. I don't think I have done it intentionally its just that my give a shit button is broke. I know this sounds weird, But I feel like I did when I was 15 and I just wanted to run away. I know at the age of 35 that is childish and something I would never do. Just think of it alot. I just Want to take my kids to somewhere different and start work somewhere else and leave. I know no one out there can help me. I just had to say it somewhere else then in my head. I know that this too shall pass. But please let it pass soon.

yeah, this is really a mystery to you? it's called burnout or midlife crisis. looks like you're 4 years ahead of schedule. good for you, you can get it out of the way now.
your problem is solvable, just need a bit more information in order to give you the proper solution.
what type of job do you have (don't say WHERE you work) and how long you've had your job
does your job require a degree
your level of education
how long you've been married
approximate height and weight of you and your husband
last time you went on a date with your husband or boyfriend
ages of your children (skew the ages by 8 or 9 months to prevent people from identifying you on here)
are they well behaved or wild?
approximate square footage of your home
how many cars
what did you want to be when you grew up
do you believe in GOD

now, if you answer all of these questions, i will give you a detailed solution for fixing your depression, as well as an analysis of your problem.

I have wanted to run away so many times, and I have moved so many times. The truth is that people are people no matter where you go and small towns can be both a blessing and a curse for people are so judgeing without knowing all the facts about a persons life. So yes I feel ya but if you can't change your area.. just be a good person and enjoy your life in the face of others. If you wronged them then apoligize and make it right because they prob are hurting to. If your wronged try your best not to get bitter.... That part is the hardest.

I had a wife that went through the same thing and long story short she left on day and messed our family up and she wanted to come back later and it was to
late too much had been done. So be careful your depression doesn't mess up your family. Maybe see a Dr to get some anti depressant meds, go to church, pray to God what ever it takes. Best of luck to u.

Your situation sounds so familiar. Take a long hard look at yourself and your relationships. Pray first of course. Remember there must be balance in your life. Prioritize. Faith first. Then family. Then the rest. You cannot change anyone else. So if you are unhappy with relationships in your life determine what changes you can make to have more fulfilling friendships. People will want to be around you when you are positive and taking a positive path in your life. Discern how much people needing you was meeting your own needs. Pray. Read the bible. Talk with someone positive. Don't look for someone who is just going to praise and give compliments. Take this situation and use it as a real opportunity for transformation. The Lord will help you grow. I too have 4 wonderful children. Grandchildren and I have been married for 30 years. Life is a long hike. This is just another little hill to climb, when you get to the crest the work will have been worth it.

I know exactly what you are going through. Depression, the feeling trapped (you forgot to mention that). You can work through it. Topix is not exactly the best place to get advice on this .. lol. Email me at [email protected] and we can talk. Oh god, I know the feeling of wanting to just run. You can't run away. I'll run away with you if you want to .. lol. Only I can't either. Running away is not the answer. The depression is real and praying is not going to make it go away. It does help to talk to someone about it.

I'm going through the same thing. I've lost a lot of people in a years time That i cared for very much and I'm finally a broken man. I'm who everyone turns to for help and still am. I am in a position where a lot of people come to me to build confidence and feel good about themselves. But I'm now the one feeling helpless and depressed and crying a lot when I'm alone. It has me confused because I am a very strong person and hardly anything has ever broken me down and made me feel like this. I can't really pinpoint what led me to feeling like this. I think trying to be so tough through everything just hid my real feelings and now I have no more room left for any more feelings to be stored away so it's all coming out. It sucks. I'm to strong to drink alcohol or do drugs. So I just smoke my weed and it makes me smile, Not forget my problems. It just makes me laugh and smile when smiling and laughin is the last thing I'm thinking about. Stay strong my friend. That's what I'm tryin to do

We have all been there;but now looking back,I wonder WHY I was so discontented. Now I really do have a problem ,my health ,each day is a battle with pain ,so intense sometimes i cry & ask God to take me Home. ahhh,if only I could get over this illness,I would never grumble again. Advice : Appreciate life if you can walk,talk,eat & and have your family all well & healthy. I still love and praise God ,for I believe that God did not make me sick,we just live in an imperfect world,and someday we will live in the perfect one,Heaven. May God open your eyes so you can "see" your blessings,and give Him thanks . You are in my prayers .

I can so identify with what you are feeling. I went through that years back when my children were younger. I didn't know what was wrong with me and didn't realize it was something that could be a physical problem. I went to the doctor for bronchitis and he picked up on my depression immediately (it was so not like me!) He asked some probing questions and decided that it was a hormonal imbalance. He prescribed a mild antidepressant. The change was astonishing. I had not realized how bad I felt until I felt good again. At the 6 month point he was going to taper me off. I realized quickly that it was too soon. He continued them for a few more months. At that time I tapered off with no problem whatsoever. That was many years ago and I have never needed them again. Whatever was out of balance corrected itself. So I would strongly encourage you to go talk to your medical doctor. It may be something that can easily be dealt with and will return your zest for life.

This time for me is hard, the month from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I have lost most of my family including my parents and a brother, the few still living are far away and unfortunately they are not a part of my life. My inlaws have also passed away, and my children live far away. Thanksgiving and Christmas were always a very important family gathering for my family. The sense of loss that I feel during this time can be overwhelming. But I know what's causing it and I try to keep myself active with activities. I don't always succeed, sometimes the overwhelming sadness gets the best of me, but I try my best. I have many things to be thankful for and I try to reflect on those when I feel the depression decending.

Christmas also tends to be a hard time for many. People expend so much time, thought and energy into creating the "perfect" Christmas. But the reality of it is that it is rarely perfect and afterward it often leaves us with the feeling of being let down or depression. My heart goes out to all who suffer these feelings during this time. I understand... truly I do. Good luck to you all.

I would like to thank everyone with your responses. I really was'nt expecting anyone to reply. I just needed to get it out. I was very touched by some of the things that you all said. It is nice to know I'm not the only one going through this. I do have a husband, but I did'nt mention him because he is at a loss with me. He trys. He buys me flowers, gifts and just holds my hand tying to get me into a better mood. He is a good man. He works hard for his family as well. None of this is his fault. I have not cheated nor has he. It has nothing to do with our relationship. It's just a funk I am going through.
Again Thank you.

Talk to your physician, some medical conditions can bring on depressive symptoms, as can some medications.

You are lucky to have a husband like that, he sounds a lot like mine. I have been truly blessed to have him in my life. I know that it is very difficult for him when I go through this difficult month each year. Men are programmed to FIX things. And in a case such as mine, there is no fixing. It is just a matter of knowing why I am feeling like I am, knowing it is just temporary and knowing that I have a wonderful man to support me through it. I truly do understand what you are going through, hopefully knowing you are not alone in these feelings will help. And again, please talk to your doctor about this. He may very well be able to help you through this difficult time. And feel free to vent here as much as you need to, sometimes just being able to verbalize how you are feeling can be very therapeutic, even if it is annonymously with strangers.
