    I have no friends, the only person that cares about me in my family is my father (and when I was a teenager he flat out told me that he didn't love me), I have some health issues, my hair is falling out, and I have been struggling with a bully boss for 5 years.  Before her, I was moving up the corporate ladder, so at least I had that.... But this boss is horrible. She disagrees with every...

    Feeling sad and rejected

    1
    so back when I was 17, I made the best friends I thought I ever had, and we were really tight for 3 years.  We did wild and crazy things that young people tend to do, and I guess one of those 2 friends is embarressed about it, or thinks I kicked her out of an apartment when in fact my landlord did it.  I dont know, but anyway I've missed her and thought about her and the other one all these...

    A Wonderful Night's Rest

    3
    Hey friends, just thought I'd share a very relieving, happy moment on here to balance out some of my sad ones. Last night I had the most wonderful sleep. It's been the first time in a while I got a good night's rest. I dreamt I was curled up under the covers in my grandmother's bed like I had done most days of my childhood. I felt so warm and it felt so real as if she were lying next to me. I...

    My x husband has depression

    Hi All,I don't know if I am in the right group. I myself do not suffer from depression. Its my x husband. He lives in Florida and I live in NY. The problem is he tortures our 30 year old daughter who also lives in NY. He also has borderline personality and may be bi polar. No matter what meds he is on they work for a while and then they dont. He doesnt actively do anything to help himself. Does...

    Never thought I was depressed but I show all the signs.  I lost my girlfriend 5 years trying to get over it but it's the hardiest thing. Out of a job, during my break up I was interviewing with my dream job but, honestly had no care in the world for it. Didn't get it. Haven't left my house in a couple of days and honestly I go in my bed and just lay there for hours. I spent 90% of my time...

The first surgery was a...
