Hi

I have been trying for hours to say hello. But I am feeling so sad - i have not been able. Finally got myself together enough to say Hi.

I am here to make some new friends and get some help same as everyone else here. And I will try to help others while i am here.

I am just so sad today - I can't seem to get myself together and do anything. I just feel so alone.

I thought this was supposed to be a happy time of the year.

Hugs, Raoul

I'm sorry you feel alone. We are all here for you my friend. I had a tough day myself. Working hard to make it all better little by little.

It takes me baby steps, I have gone through so many med changes in the last month. Need to work on knowing you are cared about by a lot of people, because you are a wonderful person.

Caring hugs

Patty

Hi Raoul, it's nice to see you back. We've missed you. I found an article on CNN.com that has some tips for feeling cheerier in winter weather. Don't know how useful it is, but if you or anyone else is interested, the URL is:

Other than that, I'm feeling pretty down also.

I so hope we all have a healthier, happier 2011. We all deserve that.

Cheers, Sylvia

Hi Raoul,

I am sorry to hear how sad you are. I wish I lived near, could visit you, and cheer you up.

Do you take any medication for depression? My hubby started about 2-3 weeks ago and there is a beautiful change. He had begun to feel fatigue and "unwell." He did not want to admit he may need depression meds.

The doc and I talked him into trying it. He did and is very happy with the results.

AS are the doc and I. His energy has returned, his disposition is brighter because he feels better.

Chuck realized, after he felt results, he did need to be treated for depression. He took his heart meds, blood thinner, diabetic meds with no problem. Yet, it was so hard for him to start meds to treat depression.

He is glad he did.

I am shutting my eyes and thinking about hugging you really tight friend.

Many, many hugs

My hubby just started Celexa. He takes the loweat dose.

I have been taking Celexa for a few years now. I take 40mg and Deplin (prescription folate) as a booster for Celexa.

I will always remember the day I "wanted" to get out of bed and colors were no longer vague, but the true beauty a red rose displays.

I hope you feel better soon.

Hugs
