    Withdrawal

    I have what many would consider an embarrassing addiction -- internet porn -- and I am one week clean but it feels like a year. Working from home gives me access whenever I want and I've discovered that I use it to distract, I guess like everyone uses any drug. It was something I became reliant upon on a daily basis I guess to avoid thoughts, depression, anxiety. It soothes me similar to my food...
  • I have suffered depression for many years. I have 2 kids and live by myself, i have no family to help and i never get time to see friends. Its gotten to the point I've isolated having feelings or keeping a conversation. I constantly watch movies, videos or listen to music to avoid any connection with anything.

    I really wish I didn't have to feel this way. I'm so sick and tired of it all. All I keep thinking about is how worthless I am and how I'll never be good enough for anyone. It just feels so true, I'm finding it so hard to keep going. I'm so tired...I guess I can use a pick me up.

    Hey, so I'm new to this. I am feeling very alone in life at the moment and my depression is getting to a point where I don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I don't have anyone who cares about me and I am just hoping to meet some people who understand this type of feeling, who understand what it's like living with depression, and who can possibly offer friendship.
  • There is nothing wrong in my life. I have a job, wonderful adult children a great husband yet all I can think about is how I can quit my job, draw disability and sleep all day. Walking feels like a chore; as if my legs are in quick sand. I don't have room to complain to anyone. I just want to enjoy my life again and get out of this rut. I'm making an appt with pdoc and therapist. Thanks for...

    Am I the only one who finds that exercising makes them feel sadder? You read again and again that it will help with depression, but working out leaves me feeling so sad.

    It comes in waves.

    I lost my wife a year ago to a heart attack and she was only 38. I am still dealing with issues from this. I feel so empty and alone even if I am with family and friends. When I sit alone on my off days I really get depressed and miss her so bad.
