Discuss in my forum

This forum folder is for people who are looking for friends to correspond with about depression, to share hopes and fears, to offer each other support. As always, use caution in your online friendships. You can meet many wonderful people, but there are also those who do not have your best interests at heart. Common sense should prevail.

(1) S Wolf says:

I wouldn’t mind to correspond with someone who has depression or bipolar disorder. I had been diagnosed with both about 17 years ago and it went into full remission since 2000. I still am very careful with my lifestyle. I am male and 44 years old and married with no children. I teach in a high school in NJ. If anyone wants to correspond, they can do so through this forum or by email. teacas@gmail.com

Thank you.

(8) TJ says:

Has anyone been able to come completely out of a depression? I went from being a very active individual to a “slug”. The best I can say now is that I’m a functional “slug”. It takes almost all I can do to accomplish the simplest task, e.g., sweeping the floor. I’ve been the therapy and drug route. I am still occasionally suicidal and even got rid of the .38 revolver I owned out of fear of actually using it.

(12) Paul says:

Hi Robbie, I can assure you that what your are feeling is pretty normal for someone with bipolar and no it is not a disorder as such. It means you have to manage your illness and take a step to happiness and yes it is achievable. I don’t know enough about the situation you are in and yes I do know the suicide feelings of it all. Crisis lines are helpful until you get an action plan together to accentuate your life and live life like you have never done. Much light. Paul

(51) adrianallen says:

I am feeling without hope and completely heartbroken, have suffered on and off with depression for years and am worse i’ve been due to breakdown a week ago of my 3 and a half year relationship with younger partner who was bipolar, there had been some physical abuse from him which i believe to be my fault, some of it extreme from him such as strangling me to near unconsciousness, suffocating with cushions, blows to my head, biting, but this violence was not part of his bipolar, there were times he would be sweet and nice, makes it all the more heartbreaking, but he often recently said he never really wanted to be with me. He left me a previous time two years ago, then was half regretting it and i asked him back. He has blown hot and cold in and out of love with me before, this time it was more prolonged, there had been flashes of aggression even two years ago but recently it had become more frequent and extreme, and he sometimes said he never wanted to be an abusive boyfriend but that i turned him that way. I did do my best to make him happy, we went on two long-haul holidays last year, was his carer as well with medication and that, and he also has a very difficult and volatile family who were often mentally and verbally abusive to me. But i often swallowed my pride and had his family back in my life, even when he said he didn’t want to. He’s gone back to that family now, making up stories about me and blaming me for everything, keeps leaving messages telling me how he’s better and stronger without me. I feel the recent moments of warmth and romantic comments from him were either acted or he was kidding himself, he one minute wanted me all the time with him, didn’t want loads of other activities or people, the next he wanted his own separate life, which isn’t really a relationship, and was potentially on verge of cheating on me, which was just way he became previous time he left, though the physical abuse was so much worse this time, was becoming twice a week or so. I feel alone, i cannot return to that flat we lived together, the memories of sharing the home with someone who i thought loved me and who i loved more than life itself, and the other awful memories of the violence and abuse and stress. His cpn nurse who always saw me with daniel as his carer has not even bothered to contact me, he will be saying that as i’m no longer with daniel he cannot talk to me. I feel heartbroken, i feel if i had done some things differently it would have all been better, i feel guilty myself, angry with him, alone, there is no hope for me. I’m staying at my mum’s, she is being supportive and concerned but she does get frustrated or upset with me at times, i feel each day i may end up ending my own life. I feel the most depressed and upset and without hope that i ever have in my life. I am not scared to die.

Yo! I’m a squeaking Mouse! Female, 45 from the UK & have suffered serious depression since I was 8. I was on anti-depressants years ago & had a brilliant Psychiatrist but found being with depressive people made me depressed! I was single & no-one gave a hoot if I topped myself. At 42 I married & am basically very happy & my hubby is an absolutely lovely man but being over-run at work for a month-tiredness & exhaustion-made me all depressed again. I’ve not told my hubby but had suicidal ideas again. I have a hubby, a Mouse & 2 Rats I adore, but I’m finding it more difficult to get out & do things without being in tears again!Can you contact me through this site? First time on here for me!

Hey my name is DJ, I’m a 22 year old male not diagnosed with depression; however, I do believe I’m starting the trend that I’ve seen in my family. I work in mental health as management, so that makes it all the harder to talk to anyone. I feel like i should know how to deal with it. Sometimes a nice job, decent wage, and nice car does not bring happiness…wondering if anyone else has this problem…shoot me an email!

Hey Everyone.

I’m Leah and I’m from Wales. 19 YO.
I’d prefer to write to someone as the experience is more personal when it’s in letter form. October 2010, I was placed in a secure unit for three months after a suicide attempt. While I was there I did attempt suicide several times, but as it was a pysch unit I was always found. I also self harm, it’s been a coping method for years now but the last few months it’s been turning into my secret addiction. It’s getting harder and harder to find a reason to keep going and not give up. I’m not ready to post or talk about the reason I so stongly feel suicide is y only way out, maybe in time I’ll be able to accept my unfortunate past, maybe not.

Anyone from the UK interested in writing letters, sharing experiences and looking for comfort or wanting to reach out, I could sure use it and wouldn’t hesitate to take your hand in helping me. Shoot me and email, chic_wales@yahoo.co.uk

Hi, I’m 41, live in the UK and have suffered from depression and social anxiety ever since I was a teen. I find it really hard to talk about my problems as much as I struggle in social situations.

my hearts torn, the guy said he’ll love me forever and ever then hurt me so so bad, i cryed so much my best friend was in tears coz i was and she couldnt help me at all. i got into self harming which actually did help a little but i hated doing it.

(79) caracolsueno says:


I’ve had some form of depression since my teen. I’m thirty two now. Even though I’ve been able to function, I’ve always struggled with depression. Over the years I’ve managed to finish school and function at work. I’ve even opened up my circle of friends to include many more people than I previously had. But a huge part of me feels like they just won’t understand what it feels like to not just be sad but to be depressed, anxious, and insecure (to an extreme). Part of me feels really embarrassed to admit these things to them. I feel like they just won’t be able to handle it.

I guess I’m just looking for a bit of support. I know that I’m the only one that can help myself. I’ve been taking pretty gcod care of my diet / health / rest. But it would be really great if I could find someone to correspond with that I can open up to about this.

(88) Nancy says:

I am 44 female from Vancouver, BC. I have had depression for close to 20 years now. The first time was a post partum depression but now in restrospect I think I was somewhat depressed as a teenager too. I have been on medication all this time and tried to go off them but took a big slide into anxiety and panic attacks within two weeks. I guess for a long time I worried about anyone knowing and the stigma that was/is attached sometimes to mental health issues. Anyway, I would like to become pen pals if anyone is interested. I would love to listen and I am kind and understanding.. espeically since this is a big part of my life.

My name is Gavin. I was diagnosed as bipolar when i was 24; I am 29 now. I, also, suffer from panic disorder. I used to live in California and Texas but now I live in Mexico. This has made things harder because I don’t know anyone here and have no one to talk to. I’ve never been a person to have a lot of friends but the ones I had have begun to disappear. I want to meet someone to talk to over email or messenger or whatever. I don’t care about age, sex, etc… Just know that I’m gay and hopefully you’re ok with that. I’m on medications and therapy but nothing seems to help but hopefully having someone to speak to will.
Well, I wish you all the best.

Hi, I’m 19, I was diagnosed with depression about 8 months ago, i get some anxiety attacks every now and then. I’ve been pretty good at hiding it from just about everyone I know. I managed to tell my sister a little after I found out about it and then told me parents a few months ago. They didn’t handle it every well, its like the elephant in the room but we don’t talk about. More like they pretend it doesn’t exist, and I play along. I feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to about this and its so hard when i feel this alone. I’d really like to talk to someone who has experienced what i am going through right now. jdmcandi@yahoo.com

I’d really like someone to talk to about it, preferably someone close to my age. I don’t mind writing as a pen pal or emailing, but please someone please get in touch, it would help me so much, tiered of crying at night and not knowing why, other than I feel worthless.

Hi, I’m 30 years old, more or less happily married, father of two. Although I have never been diagnosed with chronic depression, I’ve been suffering from sudden panic attacks and periodic feelings of deep and mostly inexplicable grief for almost all my life.

I’ve developed a certain mastery when it comes to pretending that nothing is wrong with me, but lately I’ve found it hard to keep all of it under control. I’m right in the middle of it all, life, work, family, but I’m struggling, feeling that my own life’s drowning me. Unfortunately I live in a country that doesn’t provide professional help in a language that would make sense, so I’m trying to find exchange this way.

I have been much better depression-wise in the past year, but now that I’m trying to get out anger I’ve had since I was young, I’ve had listlessness and lack of motivation to do many things. I’m looking for an email-pal (who also has depression or other affect issues) to share back and forth our day-to-day thoughts and ongoing life details and matters.

It was extremely hard for me to fight back and be the woman and mother that I knew I could and should be. The only thing I can say is realize that you do have problems just like everyone on this earth some worse off then others.I remember feeling like I was the only person in this world with this sickness…..Its all good now Ive got my strength back my children have grown And I fight everyday with this crazy mind of mine I rarely make plans because they usely fall through and it upsets me even more I have on one to talk to no one doesn’t understands this sickness.Ive been married to my husband for 7 years now and I ask him atleast twice a week have you looked up my sickness and I get the same answer everyday but its ok because I realize its only me that has to know about this and except it of course it bothers me when I know for the rest of my life I need medicine to help control my mind but its all good hey some days are really great and some days can be a living hell so I take one day at a time and pray to god to get me through the day say my prayers at night again in the morning and I just recently started going back to church just once a week I visit JESUS on Sundays And I know he is with me ALL THE TIME OR I WOULDNT BE HERE TODAY…So if anyone wants to chat I would love to ……Have a wonderful day everyone

(138) ping says:

I am a female, 31-year-old and have been on an on and off depression condition. I don’t have suicidal thoughts but constantly experiencing unstable emotional state, low in motivation and always feel lonely. I do not have a large circle of friends and I feel people who do not share depression have a hard time understanding the emotional engagement that a depressive people constantly demands.
