Hi ladies! I just wanted to drop a note of encouragement, because I have just recently started to head toward the other side of all of this depression, anxiety, stress, and disappointment in everything I have done. One of the biggest differences for me was reducing the amount of gluten in my diet. It seems that my body is somewhat intolerante to gluten (not allergic), and it was actually causing me to crave more! After eliminating a lot of that, I had more energy, I didn't have to DRAG myself out of bed, and my anxiety levels are a bit lower. I also have been able to think more clearly. I'm not saying that I'm not tired, because I absolutely am. I have just noticed that it's more tolerable and manageable than it was before, which has helped me feel more like exercising. I have not lost any weight yet, and I'm still figuring out a lot of what's going on, but I can say from experience that I NEVER imagined that I would really ever start to feel better again.

You are worth the time to figure out what will make you feel better, and I realized quickly that, until I was giving myself credit for what I was trying to do and appreciating myself for that, I was not feeling any better. There isn't a quick fix, but I've really been working on changing my own perspective so I can be more patient and forgiving with MYSELF!

Hang in there!!!!!!

Shrinking by the minute,

your ability to work is not all that defines you, you are you, complete in the way the Lord made you, and you include all the fascinating things you think and enjoy and do.

If you've been defining yourself by your work only, then get out into nature, (newest research says that nature calms your blood pressure and reduces stress hormones even if all your doing is sitting under the one tree in your yard or neighborhood. trees release some chemical that prevents rot and that chemical can help your body when you breathe it in.) Calm yourself, enrich yourself and breathe in health and stress reduction and joy, then learn something new even if it's just a new cooking technique or learn to make fire two different ways. LOL

I'm afraid that I am feeling pretty worthless and depressed myself here lately. I am out of work myself for 4 months now. I have gained 30 some pounds in that time and have started binge eating.
I have PCOS and PMDD, and the bigger i get the worse it gets. I love Spark people even tho the diet isn't going too great I still get lots of support from everyone till i get going in the right track again.
Hope you feel better soon

A LITTLE OF SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN ALOT OF NOTHING!!

dearest Kim, the MOST valuable job in the whole world is a stay at home mom.
Growing our next generation to be Kind loving responsible adults is a full time job and not to be sneezed at.

I'd like to suggest, considering the board we're on, that perhaps you're eating to many carbs?

I was on Paxil for at least two years before I went low carb and within four weeks I was able to wean myself off of it and have never needed it since. I do have anxiety and depression from time to time but it's always tied to excess carbs, particularly if I overdo it for three or four days in a row.

I hope you find an answer.

I have this feeling daily, only I don't have a husband or solid relationship of any kind to lean on in times of trouble. I've been job searching for 6 months now, and have only had a couple of interviews, and the only one I've gone onto the second round is very low paying. While it is work and I'll take it if they offer, the fact of the matter is I've got a lot of bills to pay, including student loans for a bachelors and a masters. It's all very, very frustrating, and no, you are most certainly not the only one.

Does anyone else feel worthless??? I have been feeling this way a lot lately... I feel so bad for my husband havin to work so much just to pay bills, keep us fed, and have some fun (not much)... I take care of paying the bills, and 95% of the house chores, but I still feel this way... I am always tired, whether I slept 5 hours or 10... And it always takes me forever to do things cuz I get winded so fast... I am starting to think I have sleep apnea and diabetes... My husband tells me I'm not, but what I wouldn't give to have a job right now...
