Sorry, Sybl- don't know how I didn't get that!
...about some men, anyway. That is what I'm thinking. I don't mean to try and control her or judge her, I just want to help- like I think she might feel better, or sleep better, or something, if she got out of bed, got out the house. Okay, I can hear that it sounds judgmental when I say it, but I don't mean it that way. I'm trying to make up for lost time and learn emotional literacy as a grown man. 'Listening without judgment' is this week's resolution.
Hi Daggermouth, all is well on this side :)
I would like to address your last part..about some men-
It is not some men, it is some women too.
In my case, for example, my depression at times is crippling, meaning it is almost impossible to get up, get out do anything. It isn't that a part of us doesn't want too, it is we can't. Some people depending on the past that brought on the depression in the first place has issues buried that they personally can not deal with, something snaps in the brain and nerves and we can't move.. Especially around anniversary dates of the occurrence. One being an accident that changed my life forever. Also having PTSD, among other issues health wise and being a D.i.D
After a certain event that turned my life into a living hell, I did not leave my apartment for almost 3 years. Living in a safe house even, I could not go anywhere that people would be, not shopping, not fairs, nothing. The mind is delicate, those who have never been in a deep depression just can't understand. Without being through it, and knowing the symptoms, even asking a person what is the matter with you?.. can trigger a deeper dark side and we are not wanting to be like this, but we can't help it.
Therapy and good friends, and Elliquiy as a whole, have helped me so much. But I still have days that I fight the darkness, and days it wins, almost wanting to die, but I come here, or I PM someone, or talk to my love, and blog. (not here) Fractals have also become my friend, if I am really dark, my fractals show it.
Some times all we need is a virtual hug, or some one to say, it'll get better...even though some days that phrase ..will make us cry, let us cry, and I hope you understand a little better about people like us who fight the darkness when it comes.
*hugs for you*
I just read your first post in this blog and I myself am going through that right now.I don't know for sure what's causing it,but I'm pretty sure its emotional buildup from February 2011 when I was almost killed in a car accident.I think it was brave of you to make that first post.
In 1978 I was almost killed in a car accident too.
If you get approved, PM me sometime,...sometimes all it takes is someone who understands.
Best wishes on a speedy approval sexygrl08.
