I don’t know how to deal with these bouts of hopelessness and this overpowering anxiety I feel. I feel so overwhelmed with these emotions and I don’t have anybody to talk to. I feel so alone and helpless.

Are you seeking any help? I know what it's like to feel alone. Peace be with you!

I’m searching for local support groups.

I get like that too. Every time there is change to my stability. It doesn't matter if the change is for the good, I get this overwhelming panic. I have to take something for it, to calm my nerves. It also helps if I talk about it. Verbally not written, if I write about it only, it doesn't always work. I hope you can work your way through this change without harming your relationships with others for whom you care for. Ask for someone to talk to you about it.

How about seeing your Dr.?

I just relocated to another town leaving my Dr behind. And I don’t have medical insurance. That’s why I’m searching for local support groups but I’m not having any luck.

No wonder you're stressed with relocation. Been through that even years ago- it can be overwhelming. Be kind to yourself, and take small steps. Not having anyone to talk to can be the pits- but we are here. I don;t know if you have even distant family in the new area, but how about a NAMI support group or a meet up?

I’ve been going through a major life change since August 2017. It’s been massively difficult. I did find a support group with codependents anonymous. There is a also a group called celebrate recovery that is helpful. Ultimately this is just an extremely difficult transition that no one can do for me, I have to do it. Part of my problem is wanting someone else to tell me how to live, do it for me. I’m overly dependent on others.

Thank you so much for sharing that. I’m looking to see if I can find groups like that here. It’s hard enough going through a life transition but not having anyone to talk to makes it feel worse for me.

Have you seek out counseling? Do yourself a favor and try not to say to much to friends and family? Cause believe me their going to shut you down after a while because they won't understand, trust me. My own kids have decided to isolate me cause they can't deal with it and friends Just want to lecture and want me to "Just get over it". If it were that easy. Take care

Hi! Is your name thomas like mine? I could have written your comments for you because they are so similiar. My major life change happened Aug. 2, 2017! 7:37am to be exact and boom welcome to a totally new world! No joke. aug. just like you. I deal with the depression boogie man also. I had no idea what it was until it absolutely ambushed me and slammed me down on my ignorant knees. I also have the double wamm of lonileness. Have also searched in vane for a support group. Also, as of last march the insurance/medicaid went bye-bye. Been able to adapt in some way to everything but that stupid lonileness shows its ugly face more than i,d like. I did some crying, feeling sorry for my aloneness last nite as i tryed to slip into that blessed escape of sleep. It,s a gut wretching feeling...isn,t it.? How long since you had someone? I,ve got my 17yr old son but i,ll be damned if i burden him with my problems. He,s an amazing young man who goes to school full time, gets good grades, works 4 days a week, has his drivers lisc., and has a good head on his shoulders,etc. I will not burden him with what i have to deal with. All i have to do is ask and he,ll drop everything to help me out but i only ask for his help if i can,t do something on my own. wecolme to this site. It,s not a face to talk to but it,s at least something. An aspirin instead of a shot. It,s helped me when i was way down there like you. Please, hang in there for us Cm575! If u can try to plan things in the future for yourself. For example, i,ve gotten myself a ticket for the Ossipee Valley Music Festival in July. Goin for three days. It,s going to force me to be around happy people. Never been, so i,ve got no idea about whats gonna happen. Gonna have to figure out how to set up a bed in my van, etc. My point is that i,ve given myself something to look forward to. A little lite.... way up, out there in the dark for me to aim at. I just gotta make it there and then we can see what,s next. Geuss you could call it a survival techique. Please, please, feel free to say hey. I try not to hang on the computer but i do check things. Looking forward to your reply!thomas

go to Project Blue by Therese Borchard. You can look her up online and she has several resources for your kind of condition and for many peoples' conditions. I believe there is a forum as well, just like this one.
