  1. Hi,

    I am a depression patient from past 8 years. I on medication and until last year I was feeling good. My depression started with a strange feeling of loneliness like lonely streets abandoned buildings or empty parking lot really makes me uncomfortable where there is no life. The feeling is so strong that it interrupts with my normal life..like it gives me anxiety and sadness as if I am left alone in this world and I have no on to talk to. Any change like change in place or city makes me very uncomfortable too. I am not able to understand this feeling at all. Am depressed or this is some kind of phobia which is new in life. I really want to understand what I am going through.

    I would like to tell you more about me. I am 40yr old women, married and having a 9year old daughter and working too.

    Looking forward for your guidance.

    Regards,
    Niti K

  2. I have been feeling empty and depressed for way too long. It’s not that I didn’t try to be happy I did but even as a kid, before, I can remember not being able to mix along with other kids… It was just that I was different. They would play outside and I resorted to playing with the toys in my room. I used to be a really loving bubbly full of life kind of a kid according to my parents but I think I fizzled out as I grew up…. Mostly because I couldn’t get social with people, and because I saw too much pain too early like my dad nearly dying while trying to commit suicide , being thrown out of my own house by my grandparents , my mom abusing pills, my elder sister ignoring me, and my parents affairs. Things got sorted in my family now that I’m almost 21 and stay at a hostel in college but I feel empty. I have been feeling empty for nearly 5 years now. I used to practice self harm because I couldn’t take the pain but I realised that no one gave a shit and I only hurt myself and left ugly permanent scars in the process. I have been unable to trust people or make friends even in college… I just don’t want to be hurt by others anymore I would rather live alone than be hurt by others. I always thought as a kid I might find some prince charming in college but here I realised I’m not ever going to get lucky in love. I realised that for some reason guys see me as a girl that they can use for fun u know use like a slut and not a girlfriend ( although heck I don’t even know how to flirt) and I don’t understand why….no matter how many times I ask myself, fortunately I’m not that needy and I have always rejected them.. . But as a result I’m single and I haven’t been kissed yet… And I’m 21.Yup.but I have been molested by some douche bags. I’m forever anxious in social situations and go numb when crisis strikes ( like my trainer telling me Im gonna fail) . I never cry in college no matter how bad the situation or the insults are but I cry when I’m alone. Usually people insult me and walk over me and I take it low because I don’t want trouble … I don’t get why they do that…. I never treat anyone like that … The only time I get mad in these situations is when they try to insult my family or fail me by taking credit of my hard work. Well then… That’s the time the evil side of me comes out… I feel like a volcano and I FUCK their cases up… I usually make the other person who hurt me literally cry then . Always . I feel surprised at my own shrewd plotting mind, anger and evilness at that time. I used to love creating art and it was amongst the only things ( well other than chocolate) that gave me some happiness and meaning but ever since I came to art school I have not created any of my kind of art in 3 years just trying to pass every college assignment because the college is fucking expensive as my parents always remind me. I have gotten out of campus less than ten times in a year now because this place is in the middle of nowhere and going anywhere by cab is expensive and now I feel like a prisoner. And the result? I might just fail my 3rd year, I hate what I do ,I have zero self esteem left to the point my juniors walk over me and I’m dead as an artist …the only part of me that felt alive after the rest of me had died long back. I cannot tell my parents I might fail, I feel like a loser… Hell, I AM a loser,I want to be with people but I can’t bear to be around them, I wish I could fall in love but I know this is not my time… maybe il be alone forever… even attraction is a social art I guess….I want to kill myself nearly daily but can’t because things are finally falling in place for my family after so many years of pain and I don’t want to ruin that . Its not like I haven’t tried in life , I have, I was class prez on student vote in junior college/ higher secondary for 2 years, I took part in all sports even though I was no good at anything other than swimming and karate, I acted in plays, I even came on local TV and newspapers a couple of times like for a quiz and dance and singing competitions. I tried at life . I was good at some things I did. Just never good enough for my mother and my family . I always seem to mess up at the end to the point my dad called me bad luck once. I tried ok? I just can’t seem to get anything right. I mess up as an overachiever and I mess up as a nobody. I feel like a robot now. I dunno I can’t kill myself , I dunno what to do with my life….and I might fail college.

  3. I feel so lonely from my childhood .I sometimes don’t trust people if they can’t make out time for me n give any reason for not attending me. At that point I feel like they don’t want to come along n r lying with me. I want to go out stay happy but when something or someone says anything or don’t understand me I feel like unwanted and no one really understans me or try to understand WT I meant to say. I shout at my grandparents and my close frmds for every small thing.i like it wen I’m surrounded by people who care for me like my close frmds rather than staying at home . I had tried gng for counseling but it didn’t wrk rather as she was saying I ahud only understand n adjust as per my grandparents needs n age.i stay with them isnce ages like wen I was 3 yr now I’m 23yr my mother has expired when I was 2.5 yr old no connection with my father .I had tried committing suicide twice in my life once when I was a 6 yr old kid I jus ran off from home but somehow my grandparents found me.i always want a family time n family feel in my life n for second tym wen my grandpa scolded me for not getting a medical seat Wich was 6 ys agon I even tried to slef harm. Evn im upset with my boyfriend behavior as he s always busy in his wrk. We r in long distance relationship fmr past 2 yrs. I feel like our relationship is fading cos of my anger n his misunderstanding.
    When ever I try sharing my issues with my grandparents he scolds me in retrun instead of consoling me. Sometimes he even tries to console me but he tells that I’m work n grandparents r rt. Then again it leads to an argument n we start fighting. N distance between us keeps increasing.i feel like staying alone rather than staying at my home fmr my childhood.i can’t stay at home more than 10 days it’s quite impossible for me n now it’s been 3 mths I’m at home cos of vacation. My family nvr gves me familiar time like how my fnrds get it.no one visits me neither they let me go out to fnrds place more than once in a week. I jus stay in a room all day .wen ever I’m sick I feel more lonely as I expect the care fmr grandparents as my fnrds receive from their parents .I like them but they way of thinking Abt living life really irritates me.for them living is jus staying u der a roof n having all 3 melas in a day.they expect the same wit me but I don’t want that kind of life . If I stay so reserved I won’t have anyone support in my future.. non of my cousins r close to me cos of my family mentality. They r not that traditional Abt dressing but they feel like life shud b so simple like eatg relaxing at home watching TV that’s it.

  4. After my delivery everything seems to have gone out of hand. Husband is trying his best to support me in all possible ways but I am feeling helpless that I am unable to be of any help. It’s been 15days…. Someday I do feel good but that last very short. I have no one with whom I can share my feelings. Husband do listen but can’t load him with my worries because he will end up worrying more. I know this phase will pass too but each days seems very difficult.
