I just found this forum today, not sure how much it will help. I am just so tired of being lonely and depressed. So tired of all the cloudy and what feel like hopeless days.

Hi - you said you had problems with medication for depression; have you tried any of the newer drugs like abilify?

Hi,

I am glad I encountered your post. Even though I am quite a bit younger, I know really well how it feels to feel lonely and worthless.

I also need a loyal friend who'd understand me. I think that the key to overcoming a depression is having a friend who'd stick around no matter what. In the end, if one loves you persistently, you can't help but start seeing value in life, right?

Thank you for saying that I am not worthless--if only I could feel that way about myself.

Thank you for reaching out to me. Do you ever feel like you are just trying so hard to be loved , and you just never feel it?

Hello, just ran across your post and I can relate so much! I am also SO tired of not feeling good. Im 47, divorced and my kids are grown and on their own. The divorce was a surprise and it totally devastated my life and now Im left w/nothing and staying w/someone until I get on my feet. I work but I don't enjoy the job and the pay is a little more than min. wage; thus, more to feel bad about.

I am not saying you should medicate yourself. But there is something to be said for a combination of therapy AND possibly meds.
