Sometimes life just gets in the way, I feel like how you feel too, I sometimes ask myself why I am still holding on. I guess viewing the great things instead of the negative makes me second guess my will to die. There's so much going on sometimes I feel like I am walking on a road that leads to only death, but then there's always this light that seems to be by my side. Hold on, and one day everything will be fine and you will realize that your life matters just as much as any ones life.

Hi anonamous, I was a counsellor for over twenty years before retirement.  I signed up as a volunteer on this site in hopes to help people just like you get the required help they need.  Many people get depressed for a variety of reasons but it usually passes and they go on with their lives.  Some people who have had severe hardships in life may at anytime develop depression.  Being depressed and having depression is two different things. People in general don't understand the person with depression and say things like cheer up, buck it up, don't dwell on things and many other saying they feel would help a depressed person to feel better.  They don't understand that a person can not just turn these depressed feeling off when they suffer with depression.  Depression can cause the one affected  to disassociate themselves from society. They can feel that life is not worth living and may just want to lay in their beds and sleep.  They feel like they are falling into an abyss with no way out. You see people don't understand this and don't know what to say to help.  They may shy away from the affected simply because they feel at a lose themselves to be able to help.   That is why there are professional people out there trained to help.   You see the brain creates a chemical that it sends through the blood stream when it feels that it is in danger.  These chemicals called adrenaline and endorphins  when transmitted to the body,gives the body added strength to respond to the emerging situation.  This is called the fight or flight mechanism. People have been known to have super strength at that time to help the person at risk defend themselves or give them the ability to run away from what is causing the perceived danger.  This is all normal.  After the fight or flight passes the body feels extremely tired and needs to rest.  Now when something happens like anger, sadness, stress and other emotions are triggered,  these same chemicals are released from the brain to the body.  Because there is no need to fight or run, the muscles are not needed and these chemicals try to leave the body any way they can. Usually through the circulatory system, the respiratory system and the digestive system. Things like the troat closing off, breathing difficulties, rapid heart beat, anxiety, panic attacks and digestive problems are prevelant. The more this happens the more the organs are affected.  After a while the brain can not turn off the flow of these chemicals to the body without help. The person with depression continues the downwards spiral. There is help. You need to see your doctor tell him how you feel and how long you have felt that way.  After running a few tests to rule out possible organic problems, the doctor may prescribe medication which will help control the flow of these chemicals.  There are very effective medications available to help.  In just a few weeks you should start feeling way better.  When this happens you may also benefit from talking to a counsellor. There are many actions that can be taken to help.  Don't give up on yourself. You will see this is not permanent and you will get better.  May I suggest that you have a one on one with our creator.  God made man in his own image and gave him the breath of life. Nobody knows the human body better than him. He is the best doctor, the best counsellor the best everything. He is a good listener and a great problem solver.  He loves us so much that he had his only Son Jesus give up his life for us so we could be saved.  Jesus said all that is asked for in my name will be given.  Take him up on this offer. All you have to do is ask.  God knows what is going on and awaits your call.  Here is his number:  in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy spirit.  That is his direct line and he is never too busy to hear from you. God bless you my new friend and I pray that the Holy Spirit enlightens your life and leads you to get the help you require. Papasmurf, A.K.A. Rick B.

I've struggled with depression, including suicidal thoughts, and there's been a lot of improvement for me. I've been taking anti-depressant medications prescribed by a doctor. Also I've been doing the 12 Steps of Emotions Anonymous. Part of my continued healing is that I share with others the solution. The 12 Steps of EA are:

1: We admitted we were powerless over our emotions--that our lives had become unmanageable.
2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3: We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5: We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7: We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8: We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
9: We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
And there's an additional principle of recovery: We offered forgiveness to those who had hurt us.

Emotions Anonymous, a fellowship of people recovering from emotional problems like anxiety, depression and anger.

Hi! I just want you to know that in this world, you will never be alone. Someone, somewhere out ther could probably be feeling the same way as you.  I don't think that the world without you will be a better place. We are all here for a reason.

I think that sometimes, the people around us don't get what we are trying to tell them or notice the little difference that we have made or show. That's okay. I understand how that feels. But just saying, maybe you can talk to strangers and vent. There are pretty nice people all over the world who are willing to lend you a listening ear and of course, there will be people out there who has  been through what you had and overcome it and they would be delighted to share their journey and experience with you.

Don't give up despite feeling lost. It's only when we're lost that we'll learn how to find our way back.
