      I’ve been really sad lately and find myself crying over everything.  I’ve been an emotional wreck and don’t know what to do.  I’ve thought about therapy, but don’t know financially if it a good idea right know for me.  Don’t really need anymore expenses.  Thought if I talked to others who are where I am or have been there it might help.  I feel as if half my life is gone and I have nothing to show for it but a lot of hurt.  I know I have be more positive but I can’t right now b/c I hurt too much.   Any words of wisdom would help

        • My suggestion is to write a letter to yourself or to whoever has made you sad.  Write everything you want to say down on paper.  No typing.  Keep a diary....or whatever.  But write it down as to what is bothering or on your mind.  

          If you have a doctor I would certainly go see him/her and tell them how you feel.  You really might need to go on some medication for a while.  And there is nothing wrong with that either.  

          If you had a heart condition...you would go to the doctor...this is no different.  So why not seek help? And while you are there ask your doctor if there are any small groups in your community that you can meet with for a group therapy session.  There are groups out there...you just have to find them.  

          Exercise! It helps increase the endorphins in your brain which in return help with the depression.  It’s a must.  

          Diet!  Eat three good meals a day.  Eat healthy and no junk food.  It sounds petty but it does effect how you feel.  

          You know your life is not gone.  You can’t change the past.  It is what it is...but today is a new day!! It’s a gift to you...to me.  So let TODAY be the first day of the rest of your life! If you are unhappy with how your life has been...the hurt....then CHANGE IT!   You have that power to change.  If you keep doing what you’ve been doing and you don’t like the results...then CHANGE what you do....because your results are bound to be different.  

          We are a very supportive group here.  I hope with these tips and FAB40..you will find that “happy” place again.  happy

          It’s a NEW DAY!

        • I’ll add one more comment...I found this saying on facebook.

          Sometimes the biggest source of inspiration comes from the person you see in the mirror everyday. Look yourself in the face and remember you ARE worth it!

        • Sweetie we are hear to listen and give our wisdom when we can. Individually we may not have all the answers but as a group we have each other for support and hopefully good comments that provide you with some ideas to try. Keep a journal or blog here on this site about your feelings and thoughts. Keep us involved with what is going on for you because friends are here for you. Take it one day at a time or one hour at a time if that is what is needed. Listen to these wonderful women and know that they have all been there at one point in time. Realize you are never alone and not the only one who has experiences depression at some time in our lives. I hope that the rest of your day is filled with the knowledge that these women care.
