You didn't ramble at all.

Even though you feel like you're in a whirl-wind my suggestions are pretty basic.

1) What you are feeling now is temporary- you won't always feel like this.

2) Because you are feeling so badly, your reality is being darkened by lies- "I'm no good", "I'll never feel better", etc. This too is temporary. Do a thinking exercise in which you remind yourself of times that you didn't feel this way and remember that your reality was not filled with these lies that seem like the truth to depressed people

3) See the way you are feeling as a Call To Action. Even though you don't want to leave the house and have no motivation take some steps, or have your girlfriend help you take some steps to move towards relief of your symptoms- medication review, therapy.

Hope this helps

BSloan1960 - wow I was reading your tips and they're so helpful. Just as I was reading the one about depression being temporary, that made me feel a lot better, when I remembered times before this happened. Thanks :)

2hoot39 - I can't give better advice than the above, but hope you feel better :)
