Welcome, Jollynot.
 
There are good people here. These forums and the program have helped me through some bad stuff, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that.
 
Strange thing is that we are all sufferers from depression here, but it's the most positive and supportive forum I've ever posted to....

hi jollynot - believe it or not you came to the right place. as stressful as all that sounds alot of us here can relate! that's what it sounds like to me STRESS and anxiety. and grief. have you tried lexapro? that's new and supposedly "clean" whatever that means - also there are meds strictly for anxiety. grief counseling? you've lost alot and have to come to terms with that. let your husband help you - actually both of you together should try and find a counselor that will help you. you have alot to deal with, no shame in taking all the help you can get. welcome and so sorry for your losses

Hello,
I am new here, just signed up.I've been suffering from depression for the last 2 years. I am very frustrated and feel as if there is no one to help me. I've been to 3 therapists, a psychiatrist and have tried 4 anti depressants. I am miserable and don't really know what else to do to help myself.
 
After my miserable experiences with the side effects of anti depressants, I've started seeing a more holistic doctor. He has a PhD in psych and is a MD. He has me on various amino acids and some hormones. I know this is non-traditional medicine, but I thought it's worth a try. Almost 2 years of the traditional approach has not worked.
 
Many things happened in a row that led me to this point:
I married a Marine
I quit my job and moved to Japan
My husband left a few weeks later for Iraq
I was with my grandfather when he died
I had 2 ruptured ectopic pregnancies and lost both fallopian tubes. Can no longer have children without in vitro. I nearly died during the 1st one. The second was 8 weeks later
I am 41 and the clock keeps ticking
Moved back to the states 2 weeks after 2nd lost pregnancy
Bought a very expensive condo in CA
My husband was gone most of the 1st year and a half that we were back in the US
 
I used to be capable, dynamic, kind, fun, smart and adventerous.
I am now sad, hopeless, helpless and making my husbands life miserable.
 
I think I was a very joyful person before. I traveled a lot, have a wonderful family and a ton of friends. I now am lonely even when surrounded by people. I can't picture the future being any better than this.
I hope this program helps. Thanks for listening.
