This club is for people with minor to major struggles through everyday life, somewhere where they can escape to from time to time. I decided to create this club because I had a (ex) boyfriend who is serving in the Army. He inspired me to be stronger for myself no matter what I'm dealing with.

This place can give you a solution, a shield to hide behind or blow the cobwebs clear.
This is the place to draw strength from or to commiserate with others.

The reason for my own running of this club is because I appretiate life much more than I used to, I never cared at all in the past.All you can give is your best, life is certainly a rollarcoaster for sure.

If you are intrested in joining reply back, stating your reasons.

Sophie3012. (Game on)

Hi Sophie,

Thank you, I'm officially joining as one of your charter members. I'm not doing so well this week, I feel like I'm slipping back into a depression. I'm very unhappy and totally irritated with myself.

How are you doing- Sophie and Mama?

Isis:

Fight the depression honey. I'm sorry you are unhappy, but you need to get up and take back your life from the depression. I know I don't know you well and I hope you take no offense to my words. I grew up in a home w/ a depressed and in bed all the time. It was hell on us, but I really feel sorry for her coz she missed out on life all those years. Isis, I don't want to see you like that. Get up and fight.

Thankyou Mama and Isis for joining, I'm pleased.Isis I currently have a friend who is struggling with her depression, today I woke up and felt such a blitz of depression walk all over me, but how I see it is to not think about getting through the next week but only to get through the next hour, day, month.Don't be to hard on yourself when you do something well even if it's to face the day, reward yourself.When I go through my phases of depression I call it battling to hold it down even if it's not for long and when I am on top of it I call it managing it.Hope this helps.

Wow, this is great. I really appreciate the feedback Mama and Sophie.

Mama, I just don't know what happened, it came out of nowhere. I was doing great- and then wham, I'm slipping again. I have been off Wellbutrin since May and did awesome all summer. I haven't been in the bed mode, actually I never was that type of depressed person. I've more or less been going through the motions, sort of on auto-pilot. And damn angry, and moody and bitchy. Sometimes I think that being off of the meds makes me more vulnerable to everyday life in general. I no longer have that "thick skin" I had while on the meds. I really don't want to go back on meds. I'm so angry that I can't seem stay off them for more six months. My husband is a doctor, and he has told me the last few days that I need to do what it takes to get back on track. DAMN! I'm so pissed at myself. And at him! Damn doctor of a husband. It must be nice to be him, all issue free and such.

Sophie, I'm sorry for all of this rambling. I could write a darn book.
I'm taking your advice and taking it one day at a time. If I can be even a little bit productive each day, then I'm doing good.

Thank you ladies.

Isis

Isis:

Is hubby prescribing the meds for you? And if you do ok on them and fall apart appx 6 months after you go off then can you see the pattern? When on meds like Wellbutrin you get a build up in your body. It takes time for that to dwindle away. Think that could have to do w/ it?

Sophie, sorry I scanned the directions ( the ADHD kicking in)
I don't know if I stated my reasons...well, I am trying to handle the rollercoaster of life better than I have this last year. In the last 6 months depression became so severe that I had a close call with suicide, then began cutting my arms, started and quit counseling, started and quit anti-depressants, tried abuse books and workbooks and couldn't handle them...
I am trying to climb out of this but not doing well on my own. Is that enough reasons? We don't have to become blood sisters or anything like that? (LOL)!

Hello! Sophie: Yes I would be glad to join with you in helping to heal, talk, and solve some issues that we all have.

My reason for joining is I have experienced alot in this life, and if I can help to shed some light on everyday struggles than so be it! I too need people to talk too about problems, although I am the kind of sister that relys' on my heavenly Father for all of my failures in this life, I read, and pray alot, and seek the answers, and than I will also wait for My Father to speak to me.

I will be glad to join.

Mama,

No, hubby doesn't prescribe meds to me. I have my own doc- same practice though. Do you think Wellbutrin can stay in my system that long? If that's the case- WOW!

I happy to report that I am doing much better the past two days. I'm still very concerned though, and am determined to get through this without going back on meds. Well, I'm going to give it the ole college try at the very least.

I started taking Adderall for my ADHD back in July. It's really made quite a difference in my life- for the better. I think part of the problem lately is that my RA is kicking in again- it happens with the change of seasons. I really hate the meds for RA, and am hoping to stay away from the Methaltrexate. I can't bear the thought of going on it. I've actually been managing very well going to a holistic practice (drives hubby nuts),
but it works wonders for me. A combination of massage therapy, acupressure, Reiki and cranial sacral therapy has brought great results. That coupled with some good therapy, (learning to let go of my pain and grief) is doing the trick.
I find that if I don't go at least once a month to the holistic practitioner, I'm just plain no good.

Hope all is well with you.

Isis

I would like to join for depression reasons too if thats okay. I dont know why I have it. I know that my grandma on my dads side had it too and like mama said she missed out on so much of life. And as I lay in my bed after work in the evenings I know I am doing the same thing to my kids but I cant seem to pull myself out of that damn bed. As soon as I find a job with insurance I guess I will break down and go to the doctor because my kids deserve better. I never wanted to be this way.

I'm here guys, I haven't disappeared as such.I went on holiday for a week and only just come back and wish I never did return.The place where I went to I met a lovely man, he was a club entertainer who I have intense feelings but he lives in Scotland and well I live to far away from there.I'm sick of meeting people who I'd like to spend more time with and never quite get there.I don't want it to be on but it is and liking it I'm not, oh god I am glad for meeting him, though in no position to ask for more???
I am glad you joined, feel free to state your reasons or not.I welcome you all.

Thumkin, I had days where I didn't want to face the light of day but knew I couldn't stay in bed because I had a life to lead and one chance to live it at that.I'm not sure where depression comes from either but every has a taster of it, though some people suffer with it furthermore.I think it comes down to how well you can manage it and for that you need something to distract you or finding little ways to cope, such as making a list of 5 things that make you happy.

Isis, girl get it off your chest, if this club makes u feel better, scraps the ice off the day a little then so be it.I feel for you that you can't seem to stay off the meds for no longer than six months but is there other ways you have attempted to try other than medication? I hear excersize is becoming big in tackling depression as it unleashes that happy hormone(serotion)I know and wish I had more of.

The ex has turned up and he was all over one of my closest friends and she was the one doing all the dirty work, he comes over to me act as if nothings happened, oh can we still be friends?He says.I mumbled yeah, ok! OMG.What is wrong with you girl? He keeps saying to people how do I get rid of Claire my mate, it's like you made your bed, lie in it.Though she doesn't listen and I can't be around the pair of them, I walked out of a lecture at college yesterday because I was about to burst into tears because she is hurting me after a 10 year friendship.I've just walked into college now and feel the same as yesterday over it all, like I am going to cry.
