I sooo depressed here in the Bahamas. Life is soo hard and the weather always sucks. Never any half naked girls walking on the beach either. Waaa. Try living in NYC.
Rude, non-compassionate and immature. Geography has nothing to do with depression. You can have everything in the world going for you and still be depressed. Nobody asks for this any more than they ask for cancer, yet is it just a real. This reminds me of Tom Cruise' statement and it only serves to make those that are depressed feel more alienated. Try being party of the solution rather than part of the problem.

a friend of mine has a daughter called Hannah! I always loved that name. And another Yvonne....cool!
You can write to me on [email protected]....af ter which i can give you my private e-mail.........just to safeguard it against predators or spam trawlers!!
South Africa is great but we are currently seeing huge political crisis..........crime is now completely out of hand and very violent....scary stuff and quite life-style inhibiting. I will probably leave permanently at some time soon...don't know where to, which also adds to stress.......and existential angst!!!
I hope you get a house that u will love......take time out to just meditate......and stay calm.....
best wishes and speak soon.
Hi Yvonne, Hope this finds you well, I tried to e-mail you at the address you gave me but couldnt get it to go through, maybe you could e-mail me first. do you still have mye-mail address. Its 2:30 in the am and I should be asleep, I am having a manic episode, better then depression tho. I have been talking everyones head off. I get a lot done when I am like this.

Hey guys, I am new here and just looking for someone to talk to or basic advice.
I have been depressed at some point in time during the day, every day for a few months now. I have felt like this before, but it doesn't last long, usually it's gone in a day then that's it for a long time.
I have been going through a lot, my 5 year relationship with my girlfriend fell through, money problems, etc. A lot of my dreams that I have, I am not seeing them come true. I am now out of a job for the first time in 12 years, however losing the job didn't bother me at all because they were taking advantage of me and I was happy about it (strange huh). But not working has created other problems for me (money). On top of that I have been sick, I am ok now, but I will have to have a surgery sometime this year I guess (money again). The relationship part is the worst I guess because I think about it a lot and it brings me to tears, and the fact that I was sick I think about that a lot too.
For about 3 months now I haven't even cared if I find another job, in fact I haven't been looking, it's almost like I am fearful of going back, so I have been looking for ways to make money at home. I don't know how that will turn out, but I guess we will see.
I have done several depression tests online and all of em said I had clinical depression, but I am, afraid to go to a doctor, especially this kind of doctor. I live in a small city and I don't want people to think I am crazy or something like that, you know how stupid people are, they think that the only thing psychologists deal with are crazy people.
I don't know if being around people will help since I have always liked being by myself a lot even when I was feeling fine. I do have friends, but I don't go out a lot or hang out.
Well if anyone has any advice thanks...bye...
Whatever you do, stay away from drinking alcohol and don't do drugs. They are depressants and will fuck you up real good.

Put yourself into perspective and count the good things you have going for you such as health and family.

Don't work yourself up to tears complaining or opening your heart too much to yourself in the mirror.
It simply gets you more worked up and stuck in a pattern of thinking that is very negative. A vicious circle, so to speak.:)

Keep yourself busy with a nice hobby, nothing too complicated, simply to keep you concentrating on something else.

Again, don't drink, gamble or do drugs.

That is my advice to you.

hi Karen ..... yes there is depression from 'no specific' cause. thus one can go crazy just trying to find the reasons [tho you definitely have many to make you feel despondent]. I discovered that my depression is around existential angst....what is it all for, sort of question. I think now that it is about the little things in life ...which don't have to add up to anything ..... maybe we invest too much in the 'big dreams'..... the last couple of decades has been about 'dream big'- but that's proven to be too anxiety ridden......because all dreams do not come true - less and less these days with the world so f*d up. for one thing - travelling is not as care-free as it was in my younger day - thank goodness I hiked around the world then...thru Africa and the East etc].

Like the previous poster said - find distractions - it's the only cure for despondency [call it that rather than depression]....forget the title 'clinically depressed'- i think that's bullshit in many instances - i am a counsellor and have been studying this deeply - the test is -'have you had a depressive episode for longer than two weeks?'... too vague for me.....]
Go to a store that sells natural products and chat to one of the staff about Bach flower remedies - it's vibrational medicine [natural] and can help with your feelings [anxiety etc]....give that a try for a while.

i'll check out your site.
losing a loved one IS sad - that's not clinical depression .... just reaction to loss.

warm regards

and Karen, whilst I love the company of people, I also spend virtually all of my time at home [happily now]. But since I found Topix, I am quite happy chatting [and listening] to people all around the world - on any topic I choose...it fills the 'gaps'.

thank-you Kelly..........

enjoy the 'up'.........
everyone has ups and downs - now matter how they are induced........
use this time to store all the happy feelings and thoughts then when you feel down again, you simply sink into these warm and fuzzy feelings.......you are lucky that you get to feel great sometimes .....some never do for a second......

it's lovely and very windy here today.......but these days i make myself enjoy everything - even the shit - that's been my biggest learning curve.

in India, even those doing trivial menial work, honour it and do it peacefully, acceptingly...

have fun!

when you feel otherwise....just keep telling us....
it's all ok

Hey yvonne, you know thats what I have been telling myself , I know this isnt going to last forever and I need to find ways to enjoy the times when I am down, I think right now Is a good time to prepare for those days that are to come, by doing some extra cleaning and some extra cooking, putting away some meals that can be re heated later when I dont feel like cooking. that is a good Idea for all of us who get down in the dumps. And I have been looking for a few good books to keep me company on those long days when I dont want to get out of bed.But you dont know how much it has helped me just being able to talk with some one else who understands, didnt I read that you are a therapist, or a counsiler. You are good at what you do. You give good advice. I went to visit my sister in prison on saturday. I was a little worried about it,I wasnt sure how I would handle it. But I did ok, I was afraid it would bring me down. But she seems to be doing ok. She has to spend 3 years for drug charges. I hadnt seen her for over a year.and it was good just to hug her and tell her I love her.I do write to her.I did come home and sleep for several hours afterwards but im ok. Im greatfull to have someone to talk with. How are you feeling right now, are you in a manic state or a depressed one. or just kind of in between, i usually dont get an in between. I never thought to ask you if you have childfren, or if you are married. What did you think of the picture I sent you. Send me one when you have time. have a nice day.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
