If we are true christians, we would want to help the Debbie downers. wouldn't we? They maybe need someone to talk to, someone to listen, just a friend may be all they need to feel like they have someone that cares would be enough to not feel so down.
We surely do not want to ignore older women , the world is to good at doing that, and even the Church, and family... and yes do not be a job;s miserable comforter!!

It is best that a person get themselves involve with several activities so that they wont be at risk of developing depression. Sometimes, people having an idle time is when they entertain thoughts leading to their depression. http://www.zoloftlawsuithelpcenter.com/

I too am 50+, retired last year after working for 35 yrs in a stressful exec. asst. position. I was so bored & depressed staying home, so I took a part-time job answering phones & gen. clerical stuff. Didn't work out because my son & his wife needed someone to pick up their daughter from school mid-day & of course, I volunteered. This commitment interferred with the part-time work schedule and they let me go - wow, I had never been let go in the 35 years I have worked! I was crushed & am so depressed & filled with anxiety and lack of self-worth. I think because most of my energy all my life was spent trying to make a success of myself in the work-place, that's all I know how to do. I am a very spiritual person & try to see God in all I do & the choices I make, but I'm so confused right now over these horrible emotions and the depression that has taken hold of my life. Helps to know I am not alone.

Nice to know you all post how you'd like to help the Debbie Downers, and be Christian, but not one of you made any effort to contact. What is the purpose of this forum anyway? Excuse, feeling sorry for myself again. Me thinks you all just like to read your own words and congratulate yourselves.

I wish the brick wall would of killed me.
I know this is an old post but I came across it and relate so much to the way you felt. I sincerely hope things are better for you now.

Sometimes we don't know that we are being "Debbie Downers." My mom beat me for years after she found out her boyfriend tried to rape me (she had to kick him out and was mad at me - I waited 2 years to tell her due to fear because boyfriend beat her).

I married someone who turned into a crack addict. I divorced him and he died of AIDS at 33 years old.

I have one son who is verbally abusive and has AIDS, one in jail, and one who is homeless.

My present husband is on medical disability due to PTSD, depression, and some kind of memory loss problem as well as his inability to make sound decisions.

Am I not supposed to be depressed?

I hate it when someone asks me, "Do you have family?" "How many kids do you have?" "What do they do for a living?" "What about your husband?"

Don't ask! I haven't found any way to sugar coat any response other than say "fine." If they inquire further and I forget that asking these questions is like asking about the weather, I open my mouth and answer the questions and then they avoid me.

I didn't create these problems for my family and I don't take responsibility, but they are my family and it is depressing at times. I wish I had a positive response, but I don't.

In order not to be a Debbie Downer my new answer is "Don't Ask."

Today I am feeling so gloomy. First my unappreciative daughter yelled at me about her misplaced orthotics I just paid for. I was studying for an exam tomorrow and she just simply didn't care.
My husband has a start up business forever and I am the bread winner. It is so hard to respect him and the list goes on and on. So many things has happened this year and I feel like an unloved child of god. Why I ask? I try to be a caring individual and always am patient with those that shit on me.
So I am feeling very disappointed in life. Why try so hard and be constantly let down. Friends are selfish, family is selfish and I am stinking mad. Fed up. I know I sound ungrateful. However, if you were me, you would of run away much sooner. I feel like running away from everyone.
Any suggestions?
