Very depressed

by S W
(California, USA)

I'm depressed to where I can hardly get out of bed each day. I wake up and just want to stay in bed and try to connect with's like I cannot get up...awful, awful feelings. I don't know what to do. My life has completely fallen apart the past few years: divorce, job loss, bankruptcy, family members abandoning me...I'm afraid if one more bad thing happens I will not be able to handle it.

I was there......last year
by: Leanne

Hi I was in the exact same situation as you are describing not even a year ago. I thought I couldn't take anything else going wrong and I would stay in bed until my kids got home from school at 3pm. I was totally depressed. I think that when you are at this stage it is the very end of the lower vibrational energy leaving your body. The more that you have experienced in your life the worse this will be. Please be assured that this will not last much longer and as soon as you make ONE positive change everything else falls into place and you will be the person that you long to be. Try to get out into nature as much as you can, away from Everything and think of nothing except the beauty that you are observing and love yourself because if you don't love yourself first of all your life won't change. I will send out a prayer for you and hope you feel better soon.

Love and Light to you xxxx

Don't ever be afraid or ashamed of being authentic. These are natural "God given" emotions. If you squelch them you will be in worse shape. Feel them and live with them for a while then when you are finished you will wake one day soon and you will be given a renewd feeling. It may not happen tomorrow but, I promise you it will happen. I am still in the place of "feeling". Occassionaly I wake up with a renewed feeling and then I don't get the job or I get another bill I can't pay and then I am back to feel like why should I bother. But I know that I don't have guts enough to do anything to end my life so I don't even entertain that thought any longer. Trust me when I say that if I can keep going... so can you. I don't have any friends. My son lives with me and that is nice but he thinks I'm crazy. :) All we can do is keep going and soon it really will be over and we will have a new life.
Lots of Love

Hi, I'm the original poster. I'm so sorry others are going through or have experienced deep depressions also. I am still alive -- Thankful for very good friends. If it were not for them I don't think I'd continue on (I would suicide). If life is really too hard, and one can't handle it, what else is one to do? I really don't know. I'm sorry to be such a downer -- just being honest.

I am in the exact same place. I can't believe there is some one else like this. I thought I had done something wrong and was being punished. I feel beat down. I had a relationship that was 13 years and out of the blue it was over. Just like that over. I had no clue. That was in 2008 in January. Then in May I bought my first house. I thought things were getting better. in November the company I worked for 6 years closed and then I was out of work. I work in the medical field so I didn't worry. But I looked for work for 1 1/2 years. Then was layed off after 3 months. Found another job and worked 8 months and then it ended. I have not been able to get any kind of stability. I try to stay positive but it is very difficult. So I guess I am writing this just to let you know that you are not alone. My credit score has gone from 741 to under 500. I have no money to claim bankruptsy so I get all the creditor calls and avoid the phone as much as possible. There has to be an end to this at some point. I am now looking for work, again. Yes, I want to stay in bed as well, but there is min. rest. I also try to seek answers on the internet and when I found this website, I thought this was the healing place. So I am trying to heal in between the job searches.
You are not alone

I am sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I have felt depressed for periods of time before, but I don't believe it has been to the extent that you are experiencing. I understand that it is difficult to imagine that things can turn around, but they truly can -- just take baby steps and go easy on yourself. You may come to see this process of emerging from depression as a truly valuable experience looking back. You may wish to check out the teachings of Abraham Hicks and especially their emotional scale. It may not be possible to go from depression to joy, but you can certainly work your way up. Look at the thoughts that make you feel bad and then rework them as best you can. What thoughts are causing these emotions? Your natural state is to feel good, so find out what thought patterns are keeping you away from that. If it feels bad, change it -- it does not serve you. Your emotional guidance system is telling you something is wrong with that thought. Another beneficial practice is to keep a gratitude journal. Each day, write what you feel good about, or what you are grateful for. Keep in mind that it doesn't matter WHAT you are grateful for. What matters is that you think of thinks that make you feel BETTER. Maybe not great, but better. Take it easy and let it happen. If you allow goodness into your life, you will be surprised at the results. Remember that your emotions are telling you what you are creating in your life as your reality. So the better you feel, the more you will create a life that causes you to feel better. This is a wonder place to start experimenting with shaping your reality. Don't judge yourself, just play with these ideas and do whatever you can that makes you feel even the tiniest bit better. The whole Universe wants to support you! Ask the Universe, your spirit guides, the angels and goddesses, etc. to help you -- they WANT to help you and they want you to ask! Take it as a process, you are right where you are meant to be, but that doesn't mean you are meant to stay there!

I went through severe depression last year. Quit my job in 2009 because I couldn't take the negativity, but then it seemed that my whole world was falling apart without the income. I felt like an outcast.. Suddenly I was depending on other people and it didn't feel good at all.

In my case, I had to apply for state funded health insurance and went to a doctor. I found out I had hypothyroidism & got meds for that. Even though I didn't want to take depression medication, I got a prescription for depression meds. I only did it because I was really totally and completely giving up and felt so hopeless. I took it for about 8 months and the depression is gone. I've slowly stopped taking it and I'm still ok now.

Things will change soon. Just try not to be hard on yourself, you're going through things that can't even really be explained. Don't feel guilty for resting.

Sending you a big Hug.
