I've been depressed on and off for the last years of my life sometimes I know what triggers it sometimes I absolutely have no idea what so ever. I'VE been diagnosed bipolar after I exprienced some mild hypomania. I'm on 20mg of fluexotine and 10 mg of aripiprazole. I'm not as depressed as I use to be but I don't feel like my former happy self either. I've been doing regular CBT therapy for a year it's helping but I still don't feel it's enough. I struggle to have confidence to find joy in things and to enjoy what I used to enjoy what I used to enjoy. Life is quite dull I gained more than 50 pounds in one year. Food is the only thing that brings me joy. I feel so angry towards myself and I absolutely hate how I'm feeling. I just want to get better.

I know about food being a comfort thing. I gained weight too. Mostly due to the medications I was on. I am so sorry you are feeling how you are. I lost a lot of my joy in life due to age and not working. Not sure what your situation is right now.

I did mow the lawn today and feel quite good about it. I have not done this for years. Not sure if I lost any weight doing it but it sure is a start. Let me tell you it is hot here where I live in the 100's F.

I hope you can find yourself and be upmost happy. Life does change it just a matter of time and you do not want to end up with health problems so go forth and try to get better please with lots of hugs and love sent your way Jules
