I was going to ask you if we could invite my mom, but I asked her first if she wanted me to ask. She said she'd love to be in a group with all these wonderful women I talk about all the time, but she's on too many groups right now as it is. She gets twice as much e-mail as me...and she can't type as fast! I told her to start dropping groups so she'd be able to join us. emoticon

Shari is right though we seem to have so much in common. If anyone has a lady friend that would fit in with this closeknit group and they would like invited to this team by all means let sharyn or I know.

No wonder we all get along so well. We're practically clones of each other. Glad to know I'm not the only one with the "mommy" complex that feels they have to make everyone else happy at all cost.

Well, I can certainly understand the difficulty inherent in a 'depression' team, lol, since there are many days, I just don't feel like 'speaking'....

Yeah, quicksand is a really great description. I've often said I feel like I'm drowning. Acquaintences and even friends who don't really understand think I'm "wallowing". But, I find a good sleep really helps me too. Usually, my doc just puts me on sleeping pills for a week or two to try to get me past the rough patch without having to resort to other meds. But, toward the end of last year she was talking hospital. I'm glad I was able to fight through it at home. Wish I had known you ladies then. Glad I have you now.

Thanx Lisa,

I am feeling really good today. I have just got home from spending the morning knitting with a friend at the local library. I walked there & back so I logged a good 60 minutes of exercise today.

Sharyn I can relate perfectly to the depression experiences since I've had depression for 11 yrs. Try not to sit dwellin on little things n even though it may seem hard, do ur best to keep busy even when u don't feel like it. Its ok to be down, everyone can have those days, just stick to ur meds this time. I love my new antideps. Much better than sitting at rock bottom. Perservere Sharyn, it will get better n ur not alone with this. I'm pretty good at bouncing things off about this subject ok. Hang in there. Hugs... emoticon

I completely understand my friend. After all we met in a depression group. I know our friends will totally understand that we do go through these patches from time to time.I am not as deep myself today as I was yesterday,but I am far from singing the hills are alive with the sound of music myself. I just want to add one thing I have heard a lot of people say that I get depressed. Yes a lot of people get down. I just hope that those that dont suffer from clinical depression understand that this is different than being blue. It is hormonal and feels like you are fighting through quicksand, and those of us who deal with it know how to handle it and will come through the other side and be back to our regular selves in no time. So by all means please be supportive but dont fret

Hi Sharyn,
I understand a lot about depression, since I have that problem too.
And, I know the feeling of wanting to withdraw, because isolating is what I do when I am really low.
I'm glad to hear you are back on your meds; I probably wouldn't be functioning at all without mine, although, I am not UP very often either.
Thank goodness you are OK for now. And, I'm so glad you have decided to stick with us!!

Good Morning Everyone,

With all the talk of wanting to leave I thought I should give you an explanation and there is only one word for it.....DEPRESSION !!!!

I am fine. I just hit a rocky patch although I have not felt this bad for quite some time. It is just a dark phase of depression that I will come through. Some people reach out when they get like I am at the moment, but I tend to withdraw. I have not withdrawn as much as I have done in the past & I did reach out to a certain extent so I know I am not at the worst I could be.

I am on my meds again & I am fighting tooth & nail to NOT let it get any worse. I am online most of the time & read all the mail but only respond to a few where I believe I need to. I am still well enough to go meet my knitting friend later this morning but I just not as chatty I as normally am.

There is NO one thing that I can point a finger at & say that is what has tipped me over. It is just ones of those things of depression. You can sort of feel yourself slipping backwards a little but you reckon all will be well until ......... WHAM!!!! It's got you. My 'wham' came Saturday night with a bad sleep & by Sunday I just wanted to crawl into a hole & forget the world exisited.

BUT......... I did not AND I won't. I am fine..... I just need a little time to not be as chatty & work my way through it.

I love all you wonderful ladies from Sparks & thank you so much for all of your loving patience that you always have on the ready.

I AM FINE !!!!
