I've said it many times , but it's still true

i am tired of being tired 

i have no life, I have a sleep disorder and it wreaks havoc with my moods

i take a sleeping pill, I get sleep but it tends to make my depression worse

i can't even explain how down I feel most if the time and have no one to talk to ...., about anything really

Everyone I know has a busy productive life with husbands children jobs and lots to look forward to

me , None of the above 

I don't need advice I just need someone to hear how I feel and truly understand

Have a good one,

Hi Gayle,

Welcome to the board!  I hear how you feel and have been there too and still am depending on the week.  I rarely give advice because I learned that most people want someone to listen and understand, just like you said.

I don't know how long you have had depression.  I was diagnosed with depression in 1998 after my mother passed away.

You mentioned you have a sleep disorder.  May I ask what kind?  I am actually going for a sleep study this coming Monday because I have had extreme fatique daily for the past year.  I have seen several doctors, had lots of blood work done and nothing found.  So, they think it is that I am not sleeping. 

I do understand feeling alone.  Even with a husband and children, I still feel alone sometimes.  Please know you can come post on this board ANYTIME and you will have someone to talk too.  You are not alone, please know that.  I hope you will keep posting, nice to have you on our board (hug).
