Trying To Stay Strong

Hello. I'm new to this group. I am looking for resources to help me better myself and this mental illness I have been battling since the age of nine. I'm kind of at a place right now where I don't know what to do. My mind will not shut off. There is a lot more I could say, but I will just stop there.

Hello...yes I take medication. I've been taking it since I was nine.

Maybe change the medication? Do you have any animals? What have you tried to do to help yourself? 😌

I am in counseling. This medication works better than the others. I have been continually switched to different medications throughout my life. I have made an encouragement board and writing out how I feel and praying to avoid another suicide attempt.

I've had depression since I was 5. I was called sad sac numerous times. Now at age 62 and 41 years of marriage, I'm at a crossroads that tells my heart one thing and mind another. Either choice brings heartache and I sure do dread having to choose. But I am hanging in there. I know I can not forget to take my Celexa every day as prescribed or I can't trust my thoughts.

I have started making a motivational board to help inspire me. And I'm spring cleaning my house because my mind will not shut off.

Mine won't either. I am so tired of crying over this crap. Not many people divorce after 41 years. I'm scared. I've prayed. I've tried to look at every angle and see truth in a better light. Depression makes things unclear. I'm so sick of it. Please Dear Lord, see Faith and me through the night. Grant us peace and wisdom. AMen
