life sucks, especially when you take the wrong dosage of medication, and it  makes you depressed enough to want to chuck it all. Because depression does that, it makes you think crazy thoughts. I must be crazy. sucks worse when someone you care about forgets you have a life, a heart that beats, sucks worse when they could care less if you are crying, or know the feelings are phony. yup life sucks.

I would like to know why one gets truck over and over again without a break, especially when one is the most fragile.
Things might seem small to others, but to me, especially combined, they make me wish life was over already and I could rest.

*sighs*

I know life isn't meant to be fair, but I am starting to wonder if my sacrifices aren't enough already, when it will be enough, finally, to but get a break.

I'm with you, there, friend Saerra. It is often not simply one thing that sets us on a path of depression, but several little things, and they seem more overwhelming than one large event. Believe me, I know. I have gone through, and am currently going through, the same thing you are. Maybe not the exact same thing, but enough so, that I can relate.

Just take heart in the fact that whatever hardships we go through make us stronger. And remember that you have many who support you and want what's best for you, as well.

*offers a hand and a pat on the back* Things are never as bad as they seem from within. It's the perspective from outside the situation, that is usually the clearest. Feel free to PM me if you feel like talking about anything, and perhaps we can be of mutual benefit to each other. *smiles warmly*

Of course, and I agree, yes. But. I'm chronically depressed. Enough so to have to take medication. Though I refuse so, which is my right, and I live with this. But enough 'small things' can make one 'huge thing'. And I've just had that.

Luckily, I've lived with this for over a decade, and I'm already calming down. But that doesn't mean it's easy to do this.

*hugs Adam* Thanks, mate.

*hugs Adam* Thanks, mate.

*hugs Saerra in return* No problem. I understand the constant feeling of hopelessness, as I suffer from bipolar disorder, which is an anxiety and a depression disorder rolled into one. *sighs* I, too, am on medications for it, and although they help quite a bit, I have caught myself thinking of not taking them, and giving in to whatever happens. If not for the knowledge that my family (wife, parents, etc.) and friends would be hurt by such an act, I don't know what I would do. And it is rough, because as you said, enough small things can make one huge thing, and I am dealing with that, as well. But we continue on, taking one day at a time, and one moment at a time, and pray that things get better. I hope you'll forgive me for not saying that I'll pray for you, but I'm currently doubting my faith, as it seems my prayers consistently go unanswered. However, I will send as much positive vibes and goodwill as I can spare, your way. And I hope that it is returned in kind.

I could use a sympathetic ear right now. Would you mind a PM, Saerra?

I think you miss understood me. I am not taking medication, even if I'm diagnosed with a depression that has nothing to do with anything remotely mental. I have a neurochemical disorder which doctors actually have told me I should take medication. I can live perfectly without them when I keep to a certain pattern, but am very fragile (obviously).

And, no, I rather not get any PMs.

Fair enough. That's why I asked before just randomly sending one off.

I know life isn't meant to be fair, but I am starting to wonder if my sacrifices aren't enough already, when it will be enough, finally, to but get a break.

As one who knows all to well, though circumstances are very different... one such as myself cares, and understands the question, when will it be enough... I wonder too. Now is not the time, for some, I guess, but when I see another going through the same bs that life for whatever purpose, has dished out yet another heaping bulldozer full..I try to tell that person, fully, 150% I am 'here for them, in PM, in spirit..whatever. Just letting someone know we are hurting.. in some capacity, brings a load of support from those who understand that question.

I also chose not to take the medications for depression, I had tried them all, none worked they made me sicker, more suicidal.

I think at times, the statement: whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, is one that when depressed makes you want to give in or give up even more. Whoever said it first, should be taken to the back forty, dropped over a cliff by a rope that is frayed, and let that poor sap wonder if in the end will he or she be rescued..in my girlie like not so humble opinion.

I am sorry I was not 'here' for you Adammair. I wish I had been around when you needed to 'talk, have a hug, or just listen quietly.

I agree with you there, Sis, sometimes when I'm really low, the cliches that others spit out because they just don't get it, make me want to scream, "Oh really?! Is that so? When then? When is it going to make me stronger?! When is this hell going to end?! When do I get a break in life? Where are my rewards?"

And then because they don't have an answer, I sink even lower.

No offense to Adammair, *hugs him* they are some good thoughts, and not giving up and giving in is good advice, but at times, it can hurt to hear it.

*also leaves the PM box open for any who wish to talk, and promises to sympathize without dishing back (if I can)*

I feel like I should say something on this topic because, I have had bouts with it. I get very numb at times, almost frozen emotionally. Right now I am still very much staggered from a few changes in life, I did not want or ask for...but it is what it is.  What I can say is that there is love out there in this world, I know it may seem very cold at times. I know there are times when we all feel so alone. Just always remember there are people who are pulling for you, who are ready to offer a smile when you are feeling discouraged, an umbrella when your rain pours into your life.  You just have to remember that you are not alone. 

There are people who may not have your exact set of circumstances but they know the pain of emptiness and the feeling of despair. In your darkest moments, just know you are loved, you are embraced, and you are regarded.  :hugs:
