Down and lonely

I'm pretty sure now that I'm seeing the signs of depression again; woke up this morning and just cried for about an hour, feel really lethargic and getting some really unwanted thoughts popping into my head again. Hope I can get to see the doctor sooner rather than later ... these feelings aren't constant yet and I don't want them to end up that way.

Loneliness is really killing me on top of the other feelings. We relocated a few months ago, well me 6 months ago and my husband joined me after 3. He seems to have made lots of friends at work already and has got a good social life. I work for a really small company so it's harder. The one person who did ask me to go for a drink now & then has left. She was nice but a really heavy drinker and I can't do that these days ... plus I just don't feel comfortable around new people. All a bit catch 22 as I would like to make friends here but not through boozy nights out and also the thought of making friends petrifies me ... I haven't felt like that since I was a shy child!

I really don't feel like me anymore. I am wondering whether that's partly why I'm beginning to feel depressed again? I liked being open-hearted, outgoing and a bit giddy sometimes but fear is getting in the way. : (

hi bluebelle,
welldone you on recognising your feelings of depression and wanting to act sooner rather than later,
as regards to the "thourghts that keep popping up" i try and send them away with a thourght of something that makes me smile, a happy thourgt if you like, i dont know if youve seen the film "shreck" but the bit at the end when they are all singing to "im a beliver" is one i use it makes me smile and start singing it, daft i know but it works for me lol

regards to friends, last night was my birthday and i had a party, some mustual friends came, and a couple had thier friends over so they bought them, so ive made 2 new friends now, could that be something you and hubby could do, if he has some mates hes met through work... why not have a bbq, his mates will prob have gf or wives??? there could be the possibility of a circle of friends opening up, that both of you can get to know.
its worth a thourght xxx
