Saturday, May 18, 2013

Today was pretty much the same as my last few days. I am tired of feeling this way. I just want the medication to hurry up and start working. I don't know what to do everything seems so hard right now. I can't go on like this. There has to be a better way. I am so frusturated I hate this I really really do.

    I'm sorry you're still feeling so depressed, Tanya. Few things in life ever feel as bad as the pit of depression, I've found... You'll start to resurface and feel better in a short while, although it hasn't been even a week yet since your May 13 post, when you let us know you'd been in the hospital. It's still too soon, unfortunately, for you to notice much benefit yet from the medicine, as it continues those first changes in your brain chemistry to help improve your mood.

    To whatever extent you're able to concentrate - and that alone can feel like an enormous task when you're depressed - on something your really enjoy, whether it's a favorite TV show or site on the web, you'll be exercising your brain toward a greater and greater ability to focus again. But make sure it's something you'd ordinarily enjoy when you're feeling a little better, so that it's not too much of a stretch to really get involved in it.

    They say "involvement comes before interest," and for me, that's always been true. When my interest in something has been a little lacking but I threw myself into it, I've almost always found that my level of interest in it rose. Maybe you could experiment with this idea and see if it might work out for you, too... emoticon - Susan

    I have been working my way through a clinical depression so I know all the things you are describing intimately. It sucks. When the medication hasn't started to work on you yet you do feel like you can't do anything. This is a time to pamper yourself a little. It may sound hard but try to find something you like to do and do it. Just doing anything will help you.When my first husband kidnapped our son I was totally depressed. I discovered reading sci-fi/fantasy was an excellent way to take myself for a little vacation from the depression. It helped get me thru until my son was found and returned to me. Hang in there, it will get better! emoticon

    I'm so sorry - I know anything I write will not really help - but I am here - checking up on you and hoping for the best. In time - I hope - that medicine will be just what you need - and you can start to move forward instead of feeling trapped. I cannot say I don't understand - I have been there before - but it is not the same is going through it now. Just take it one day at a time - and don't forget to hang on to hope!
