Hello Carenity Members,
I have seen in thedepression forums that there are many posts about people needing someone to talk to/listen to and feeling of overwhelemed with life or facing depression for various reason
I have created this discussion group and PINNED it so that it will remain at the top for people to do several things:
1) Those needing someone to talk to, can briefly state what they are struggling with - their situation - and that they would like to talk with someone.
2) Those who would like to listen/talk to someone else, can then private message that user directly and begin a conversation.
3) Those who have either overcome their depression to an extent or just really want to help and listen can also comment and say just that - basically offering themselves to be contacted.
I hope this helps open the communication and organize the forum as well. I think peer support is essential, especialy when in our own lives, perhaps we feel blocked out.
As always, there is the general forum for any and all other discussions.
If situation is very bad, please know your life is important and reach out to a medical professional or call Crisis Hotline at 1-800-273-8255

My husband and I just this second were talking about me not having anyone around my home to talk to. I've lost the art of talking and fellowshiping.
I am feeling depressed for quite some time, for the last four to five years. I am on two medications and I am trying a new medication soon. I have been through a lot over the past few years starting from December 2010 to now. My life is crumbling. I have moved four times, been a caregiver twice, three surgeries, and I suffer from a few diseases. I am trying to cope but some days it is hard for me to even want to wake up. I am 63 years old, on disability and just want someone to talk to that can relate to what I am going through.

@chais18a I'm 72, been through two cancers, neuropathy in feet and legs, muscle loss from chemo as well as the neuropathy. I'm not steady enough to feel confident to go outside by myself. I'm scared to death that I will fall and no one will be around to pick me up. I'm not on meds for depression - I went off and dr will not prescribe any for me.
@chais18a Hi. I can relate to what youre going through. Let me know if you'd like to chat. I am 61, have treatment resistant depression, and am on disability. I also have an autoimmune disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Mind valley has some excellent programs that I would STRONGLY recomend ..... It`s worth the cost. also praying and believeing that tomorrow wil be better than today.. It`s tough but try it.. It will be a GREAT Help.
