I'm Depressed!

Recommended Posts

I'm so severely depressed right now that I don't know what to even do or say! I am sick of everything and I hate being depressed, but I can't snap out if it. I'm depressed and angry an the ame time and I really have had enough. I am so tempted to eat and drink whatever I want tonight and I don't even know why I have that temptation. I just don't understand anything at all in my life right now. :angry::(

Walter, do you have some close friends that you can call on when you feel really down? Do you have a family, wife, children, or parents?

I know that you teach, but I am sure that you want to keep this out of you administration. I would strongly suggest that you find a shoulder,either personal friend of professional assitance that can help you work through your drepression. Find a buddy and talk.

I'll be thinking about you. :)

Hi Walter,

I'm sorry for you. It is good you can say something about it. Do the people in your life know about how you feel?

I imagine you are newly diagnosed? If so, it would be a good idea to make sure your iron and b12 levels are not low. These can cause depression, they do for me for sure. I don't want to beat a dead horse and maybe you've covered all these bases. :)

Is there something specific going on? Is it life in general or dealing with celiac?

Maybe you just needed to vent. :blink: But if you want to talk I'm sure people hear will be willing to listen and offer you there best.

Monica

We all feel like that sometimes. It can be helpful to talk to a therapist or even other local Celiacs, Walter S. Eating and drinking anything you want won't help you feel better. It is okay to not know what your life is about or what to do. Everyday is new and we are bound to be mad and depressed for a lot of them. If you cannot get out of it I really think you should tell that to someone in the medical community. Even if you cannot say more than that maybe they know how to snap you out of it. It is worth a try, Walter S. Good luck, really.

Walter,

Eating and drinking the wrong things right now may give you a very brief fleeting comfort fix, but I'm afraid it will bring a bigger aggravation of the glutenings with piling on the depressed mood and compound your gut issues. Try to meditate(I hope you've done that before ;) ; exercise your body so your brain can take a break; treat yourself to a gluten-free brownie at Starbucks and realize that everything has cycles and this down turn will soon be gone. Also tomorrow spend a few minutes in the sunshine......it makes the brain produce more serotonin and that helps you feel good. Will you let us know how you are tomorrow? Do you have counselling through EAP at work?? It is normal to be angry at the loss of your health, but don't let it turn destructive on you. Use the anger to work FOR you.....

Hello everyone. I just wanted to give a quick update. I am still pretty down, though I did make it through a day of work anyway. I feel depressed and am having a hard time snapping out of it. I am hope this will end soon. I did acll the doctor to ask for med. He is supposed to call back tomorrow. I am sure thaqt part of the depression is related to the lack of family suppor I am getting with all of this. I recently had a huge fight with my father and I am trying to cut him out of my life for good and not speak to him anymore. He was very physically abusive when my brothers and I were younger and now that I am in my thirties he still bother me. I don't even want him to come to my house and visit or call anymore. That on top of all else I am sure is getting to me.

Yes, we're glad to see your post today. Glad you made it to work. As hard as it is, sometimes we have to cut people out of our lives in order to cope. In time, I'm sure it will make you a stronger person. It's just so hard while you're going through it. But you're not alone. As you know, this board has some really supportive, caring people.

I'm glad you called your doctor and he was able to prescribe something. Hope that helps you out too.

We all have days when it's hard to cope. The other day I told a coworker I was going to go home and order a pizza and just give up on the whole thing. She said "go ahead if you want to make yourself that sick". So of course I didn't! But I wanted to!

But I know what I was going through this week is mild compared to the struggles you are having right now. Just try to keep strong.

take care.

Hi Walter, just remember that family = the only people that you didn't ask for and that you've got family here. I get along well with my parents, maybe because they don't visit me, I visit them. Just a thought. I think it's great that you went to work; keeping a routine will help you more than breaking it, at least it does for me when I've been down. Also, I don't know if this is the case for you, but this is the hardest time of the year for me. Maybe a little July sunshine will turn things around, maybe not, but at least hold out that hope. You've got support...! :)
