I just don’t know if this is the right place but I am here on a break with my boyfriend for many reasons. I don’t even want to address all details because I am not here for us- but for me (blush)


He basically told me my truths about how unhappy I have become after returning from living abroad (we made it work wonderfully away from one another for a year).


So anyway, I have many issues and I am recognizing them as he spoke to me- some he didn’t even have to say…

Have you ever been evaluated for depression? There is one I think I might have called Dysthymic Disorder. It a low-grade chronic depression. You can still get on with life, do amazing stuff, but just never really feel quite to par.

I've tried antidepressants & have pretty back luck with it. So I'm trying to fix myself up naturally. It's a slow go, but I believe I'm progressing as my days do seem to be brighter than they used to. Plus I suffer from anxiety & my panic attacks are rare & when they happen I know they're hormone based & I rarely feed into in any more.

I know I still have a ways to go, but it feels better to have gotten this far.

Awareness is a great first step. Understanding & acceptance will help pave the road to recovery. You sound wise & accepting already.
