I've been there, so many times. I finally had to have medical help, before I ran away from home. I wish there was a magic solution for feeling depressed, if I had it, I would give it to you! Hugs, Babe!

Stay busy, try to enjoy little things. Look for things that make you happy and try keeping a journal of them. It will help you focus on the good in your life. Also take note of any pessimistic thoughts, loneliness, regret. Try to take note of what you were doing and the train of thought that led you to the negative feelings. There may be something triggering them that you don't realize and if you can find it then it can help you figure out how to get past it. It's also possible that it's something biochemical/hormonal and you may just have to wait it out. Make sure you talk to friends and family. It's impotant not to try to hide what you're feeling. That can make you feel isolated and alone which can make the depression worse. And remember that you have friends here that care deeply for you. If it doesn't pass within a week or two, or if it keeps coming back, talk to your doctor.

thanks everyone, today was better. i decided to just take a day and do whatever i felt like. i read quite a bit. did a few easy chores, made pulled pork sandwiches, and had them with some beer. i think i figured out a part of it is the ptsd. i have meds for that. got the paint for wall yesterday and am looking forward to having that done. pretty much just keeping on, keeping on. the ptsd is a sneaky devil. it pops up with out me noticing, and then just knocks me out. it will never go away so will just have to do the best i can.

So glad you're feeling better, Babe! Yes, PTSD is a nasty thing. At least you have a name for your demon. Hang in there, sweetie!

When I know that any comments are going to put some one on the defense, I try to make sure they know that I realize they might not be at fault but they are my only conduit to some one that can fix the problem. Sometimes it helps, but not always. I would have complained about the dirty floor too.

My new, used car did it again. Twice, on the way home from seeing a new client, it stopped while it was supposed to be going. I am not happy. I'm seriously thinking of exchanging it for a different car. And she's so pretty.

Also, I don't need this during income tax season.

Sounds like you got a lemon.
