Hi there!

 

This is a wonderful idea.  I have personally gotten so much from on-line support groups.  They can be life savers.

 

Here is the link to our page full of information about various on-line support groups.

 

And of course you can write here as well...it is possible to write shareposts here so that people can reply.  Our community is very warm and compassionate.

 

I hope you find a good group to connect with.  Thank you for your question.

Hi there,

 

Our daughter is at university in a bigger city, two hours away from us by plane and is having lots of depression. We just don't know how to help her as the social environment where she is in her residence dorm makes her feel like an outcast on her floor. Is there anyone on line that can talk to her now - it is sunday at 830 p.m. she feels like she has no friends... She wonders why no one comes to her to be friends and asks her to do things with her...

you DO NOT need that. If he is treating you that way he will never really be a good person for you. He may really love you but life is way too short to waste in pain. I have been where you are and being alone but having peace is so much better then carring the weight of his demons. He dont care enough to change he will never care enough about you to treat you right. You need to mourn your baby and be strong for this new baby. He may want to change but he wont and all you will have to look forward to is pain. Please find a way out. You don't need him!!!!!!!!!!!

Brenda I feel alot like you do I have tried to kill myself too and still here scars and all . People treat me bad for no reason as well. You need to find a place inside yourself to where if they dont like you it doesnt matter. God made us all the same. Some people you can see the scars some you cant but we are all the same. When some one treats you bad it is because they have issues they can not deal with. Dont let them get to you and always remember that you are just as good as anyone else. just find that place inside you you can go to get away sometimes and remember you are great!!!!

Hey I have had depression since i was 14 i am now 39. It has interferred with my entire life. I have never been to dr for it and never took medicine for it. I have found I dont produce certain chemicals in my brain to be happy. I have looked online and found different food that can change the chemicals in your brain and make you feel better. Baked potatos will instantly change how you feel. The best thing I use is Betty Crockerr chocolate frosting. I tell everyone that is my instant therapy. Try it annd look online for other foods that increase seretonin in your brain. Hope this helps alittle. Someone cares!

I know I wish I could figure out why i feel the way I do.  Maybe we shouldn't look for why this happens to us, wasted energy.  There may not be an answer.  i know it is just so hard to find a way to make it better

Hi Penny, I'm sorry you are feeling down. We can talk if you want. I believe we should never stop looking for an answers. To not give up hope that we will feel better. Often, finding the answer deep down shows us how we can try to work on it. In turn helping us to feel better. Crystal Reply
