I DONT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH ME BUT I FEEL DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS AND TO FIND THE RIGHT ROAD FOR HEALING...I WOKE UP TODAY AND AGAIN BEGAN TO FEEL AS IF I COULDNT HANDLE ANYTHING! I HAVE A TERRIBLE AMOUNT OF GUILT BECAUSE I FEEL AS IF I AM A BURDON ON PEOPLE AND HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE IN RETURN...I HAVE GONE FROM A SUCCESSFUL TEACHER WHO HANDLED MY JOB, CHILDREN AND OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES WELL TO SOMEONE WHO CANT WORK AND HAS A HARD TIME SOME DAYS WITH SIMPLY TAKING CARE OF MY CHILDREN AND CLEANING MY HOUSE...I HAD TO TELL A FRIEND OF MINE THAT I COULDNT WATCH HER KIDS TODAY BECAUSE I JUST CANT HANDLE LIFE RIGHT NOW. MY 4 YEAR OLD IS NEEDING MY ATTENTION AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS CLIMB IN THE BED AND CRY ALL DAY. I DONT HAVE THE STRENGTH TO GO ON LIKE THIS. i FEEL SO STUPID AND CANT UNDERSTAND HOW OR WHY THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME. AND NOW I FEEL LIKE I AM JUST HAVING A PITY PARTY AND WHO WANTS TO HEAR ALL OF THIS ANYWAY. THANKS FOR LISTENING AND FOR ANY ANSWERS YOU CAN GIVE ME

Owie, how long have you felt this way? What was going on in your life around the time you began to feel this way?

Have you thought of making an appointment with your family doctor to see if he can suggest some resources to you or some antidepressants, if that's what he feels you need?

I hope you find some relief soon. What do you think is at the root of this, if you had to analyze yourself where would you start?

Hi Owie,

I'm sorry you are having a rough time of it.

I don't remember and you may have already told me.. but, are you on anti-deppresants? Sometimes, we all need a little boost to help us out. Once that feeling passes, it is easier to work on ourselves.

Just know that you are NOT alone.

Sounds like Social Anxiety!! The best thing you can do is make yorself do things, go outside for a walk, get out in public and see that you are not a "burden to people". God would not have blessed you with your beautiful children if you were a burden or thought you could not handle it. Just remember, you are never given more in life than you can handle. Keep fighting! You sound like you are to strong for this!!!

for all of you that asked questions you can read the thread titled not sure if i am co-dependent, looking for God in all of this...yes I am on anti-depressants but i dont feel better consistently, i never know from day to day, i take zoloft 100mg, i cant take more than that because it wires me out and i cant sleep or sit still! anyway, part of the problem may be that i havent been able to get any counseling since i went to the hospital 4 weeks ago, i am suppose to make an appointment on Monday

Owie,

How long have you been taking Zoloft?
You might need to have it coupled with something else. The Zoloft/Trazadone combination works the best for me.

I know you are active in your Church, have you tried talking to anyone there until you can get in to see a counselor?

There is a really good workbook that you can get it's called "The Depression Workbook" by Mary Ellen Copeland. I worked my way through it years ago, and it really did help.

Hi Owie,,I'm sorry I haven't replied before now, been working,,

Sounds like you had a day like I did the other day with lots of the same feelings. I hope you're feeling better by now. I never know day to day either Owie, but I do know that my hormones play a really big part in all of it. They always have. I've not been hospitalized (yet) for depression or breaking down, but that's just because no one took me when I had my "break". I feel so bad for you because I know just how you feel. The doctor put me on Effexor, Klonopin, and trazodone and has just now added Wellbutrin. I know it sounds like a lot but right now at this point in my life, I can't deal with anything unless I have the meds. Can you call your doctor who put you on the Zoloft and tell him/her what you're going through? I know I'm tired of taking pills and often don't take as many as they say, but I'd rather take them than feel as I did the other day and as you felt yesterday.

I wish I could say more and be of more help to you but am going through the same feelings, so just know you're not alone.

Let us know how you're doing,,,W.

Poor Owie, How old are you? I'm guessing in your mid to late thirties? I also have been in your shoes when I was about 38 years old. Did daycare out of my home to stay home with my girls. Felt depressed, useless, unsatisfied, tired, not sure who I was, hopeless, helpless. That was almost ten years ago. What a road I have been on, a bad one. I didn't like myself. Tried to get back into the work force. Tried medication and counseling. Began drinking and going out trying to have some fun. It was so crazy. Ended up divorced and soon homeless. Long story! I have come a long way and can say I am happy with myself today. I do have to be careful and set bounderies for myself. No longer taking meds. I felt so ashamed and guilty. I was a failure as a mother, wife, friend....ect When I finally realized that God forgives me and that I needed to forgive myself did I begin to take care of myself. Could you possibly be bored? Are you a caretaker? Do you put others before yourself? I feel bad for you and hope you find out what is wrong. Could be your hormones or wrong medication. Take care of yourself and don't beat yourself up, God says we ALL have a special gift to offer. The hard part is discovering it and then using it. Hang in there Petunia

I know what you are feeling. I was really depressed a year ago same exact feelings. I lost a relationship that I was codependent on and nothing could get me out of it. My kids who one of them happened to be 4, my friends, my husband, going out and getting drunk, just did not work. The thing that got me out of it was getting a good job and some good meds (paxil 60mg and Buspar) and therapy. All of these helped but there are days that I have setbacks. When that happens I try to look at the positive things in my life, and move on. It is a tough road but you need to find something that gives you validation and challenges you personally and mentally. It is a tough road but if your life means anything to you and those in it, everyday you wake up and feel like garbage you got to fight those feelings of negitivity and move on.
