I'm new here and would like to thank you for having this place and for being so open about discussing this topic. I have found that for me I've actually developed some bad habits along my life that have led me to feel a little out of control at times. I picked up a really good book that I'd like to recommend to everyone. It's called "The Power of Positive Habits" and it really did make me think about some of the triggers in my life. If anyone has any other good books to recommend, I'd really like to hear about them.

Thanks,

Gillespie

Nice to have you here, Gillespie. Thanks for sharing the title of that book. Sounds like one most everyone could use.

Just wanted to stop in and say hello. I will probably be back on Monday. I've had major depression, severe, chronic, treatment resistant and with psychotic features(hey, I'm fun and easily humored when that happens) for about 28 years. I've been on disability for it since 1995. FLUSH - the sound of an expensive education going down the toilet!

At any rate: Hi to everyone in this folder. I'll be back.....

Hello everyone. Well I suffer through 5 years of multiple abuse from my mother and step-father. Physical, mental, emotional and others. I went through two years of therapy that did nothing to help me. My step father ended up with 30 to 45 years in jail and m mom kinda ran from her problems leaving me and my two brothers behind. Both of them had been sexually abused by my stepfather and both have had many problems dealing with it. One ended up in jail. I now am semi over the emotional abuse and over the other two completely. If anyone needs to talk, you can talk to me, I like using my life as a therapy for others. It makes me feel like I have saved anothers life. Thank you for listening

Hi

It looks like you signed up here about the same time I did. I'm still wandering around and trying to get to know the site and the people. I haven't posted in the new poster folder, but I will try to do so today or tomorrow. Anytime you want to talk is fine with me. And feel free to email if it is something you don't want to post on the board.

Thanks lilith!

I have always posted on a depression support group site (8 years) and on an Inflamatory Bowel Disease support site (about 3 months). This is the first site I have posted on that has a variety of boards. So, I am having fun!

Oh Hun, I can relate. My dad died almost 11 years ago of cancer. He went very quickly. At the time there was no way I could get to Fl. If you can girl, find a way to see him. I regret that I never made it down. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him. I didn't have anyone to talk to either then, But he left me knowing 2 things how much he loved me and how much I meant to him. I don't know if this helps or notbut know you really arn't alone. Keep talking. Vent or cry but don't shut down and don't let anyone tell you not to feel what you are feeling. I do understand and my heart goes out to you.
If you can Hon, find a way to see him beore it's too late. I thought I had more time and lost out. You are in my prayers and thoughts.

(((((Sabra))))) I'm so sorry. Is that why I haven't heard back from you? I'm still around, and you're in my thoughts.

Sabra,I'm very sorry that I can't really meet and hug you.I always pray for you when you post messages in this site or even when you can't.I have learned that each of us was the treasure tower itself(most precious and valuable things).I'm sure that Sabra,your father,all of you are treasure tower itself.

crazymomma,your message moved me so much.I thought that I lacked the experiences of having a hard hard time enough to understand and encourage my friends.But I want to make much more effort and be thinking about others to understand their feelings.

Talking Hi........

(((((((((((Sabra)))))))))))))
(((((GSF))))) Well I hope you know Sabra that I miss you in chats. That I hope you'll come in and vent. Let us be here for you. Since I know of many a time you have been there for others. Gsf I am so glad that you are posting a lot. Love reading your postings.
I finally have realized that even living in a house full of (family) people you can get depressed cause of their nonsense. After last night, I am going to make a conscious effort that whenever my kids or spouse does try to depress me with their nonsense, I am going to escape. Or in other words, leave the house til I am able to deal with their nonsense. I am no longer going to allow them to upset me since they are in pissy moods themselves. I am going to tell them to get over it already. Leave it where it belongs and I dont want to hear let alone see it. Which I think will help me in keeping myself positive and happy.....instead of depressed and negative. I waste so much when I do the latter. Not anymore! Remember to have a great day!
