Jul 21, 2018 · Long-term depression in Depression & Anxiety

I so very very much relate to what you had to say. I am a 67 year old woman living alone. Everyday is a struggle. I know what I need to do, I just can’t.
I do not want this chapter of my life to be like this. This disease is such a lonely monster!! I want to help you feel and do better. Be glad to correspond in any manner that would work for you. I realize the same things are repeated over and over to depressed people. I am convinced kindness, caring, understanding, and encouragement play a huge role in tackling depression issues. There is no way others can possibly understand even a tiny tiny bit what a depressed person goes through. To me it seems our biggest chance for success/improvement is from other depressed people’s support and encouragement. Shouldn’t we unite and all take this on together? Even baby steps of improvement would be a start. I am available for helping anyway I can. Do not do this alone. I am alone and the road to recovery is so much more difficult without even a degree of support. So hard to hold yourself “up” every hour of everyday. By being a member of this group, I am hoping we all commit to helping everyone of us as we begin to rise from the ashes!!

Jul 18, 2018 · Finding Help: Alone and Depressed in Depression & Anxiety

I am a senior woman that lives alone. I fear getting more severely depressed and needing help in my home with meds and food. NO…I do not have ANYONE…been way too depressed for way too long for opportunity to meet people. Does anyone know an organization I can contact that can find help for me? ANY suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

You sound like a very warm and caring person. Just wanted to let you know your words applied to me also and I appreciate you making time to offer kindness and support. This is such a lonely disease. Everyday I am just hanging on.

Oh, yes. I can so relate to everything you said. This is such a difficult and challenging disease!! I was just getting ready to post about what to do if your family has no compassion or understanding of what is going on. I too am in this all alone. If we could “get over it” why wouldn’t we do that? I recently moved to be close to family only to be ignored and excluded. I don’t know many people here as a matter of fact, very few and certainly none I could ask for help. I am a senior woman living alone. I wish I knew how to help you. Maybe if you told me what you feel you need or would like. You have my total support and understanding of what you are feeling. I do very very little but constantly am thinking of things I could do. Such as walk. Cannot do it. So frustrating and embarrassing. This is my first ever reply and I have never posted so bear with me. You will be in my thoughts and know for sure I know exactly what you are talking about!
