Q & A

I’ve been feeling a lot of sadness lately, which I hope does not turn into a severe depression.  There is a lot of factors that contribute to the way I’m feeling.  

Supportive friends and relatives is a great solution - People I could talk to? - No, I discovered that the people I know, friends, family have been unresponse and indifferent with me.  Where is the love and support? What do you do in a situation like this?

    • I am sorry to hear about your depression. Have you gotten your Vitamin D level checked recently? You could be suffering from seasonal affective disorder.

      Try taking a class that you would be interested in. You will meet new people there that will share your some intersts.

      Check out “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pauch. He has a book and audiobook out that may help. He was a leading professor who was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Very inspirational.

      Find inspiration on a daily basis. Listen to music that lifts your spirits, find an exercise that you like to do to get your blood moving. The other thing I agree with is you need to start learning to love yourself. Louise Hay has done a lot of work on this subject and you might want to check out her cds at a library.

      One more thing. We are responsible for our own happiness and love. You will be suprised when you start to love yourself, how much love will start to comes your way.

    • In a situation such as you‘re experiencing, I do something special for myself to heal the sadmess I’m feeling. Try an internal conversation with yourself and ask yourself if there is anything you can do to brighten up your day, lift your spirits. Finding what you can do to change your emotional response to the source of sadness will go a long way to cheer you up.  

      We should be able to feel sadness to acknowledge what isn’t right in our world and in our life, but not to the extent it robs us of feeling happiness too.  

      All my best to you,

      Cathie

    • I have dealt with a low level of depression my whole life.  I have been on antidepressants at different times in my life.  The medication does seem to help.  I would find myself a good psychologist or counselor.  I have found this to be the best thing for me.  I don’t feel that friends and family are really qualified to handle issues like this.  They mean well, but .... a professional is the best thing.  Hope this helps.  I feel for you.

    • Thanks ladies . . . I know my hormones have gone haywire; my body has changed drastically; I can’t seem to well with my business—There are so many factors that contribute to how I’m feeling.  

      In my younger days my depression had become a pattern—at the age of 40 I was diagnosed with a disorder . . . Not SAD, but something else.  

      Right now, I’m feeling too complacent and bored . . . I don’t do well with the mundane and I’m feeling unproductive because no matter how much I try to get things going, nothing seems to work out for me.  I’m impatient and I want to be happy, but it’s been so difficult.  I do exercise, but I’m thinking about maybe boxing and a little martial arts.  

      I appreciate all of your support very much!  I didn’t expect to receive much response and care. I’m feeling much better than I have in the past few days.  

      Also, I will take the advice and do some bloodwork, as a know my hormones are severly wacked out!

    • Please let us know how you‘re doing a ways down the road... like after having the blood work done and have fun with the boxing and martial arts too if you do it.  

      I hope you‘re feeling at least a little better now.  

      Cathie
