Introducing myself like many other poor lost souls feeling down and lost...

Looking for people to chat with on a regular basis about feeling generally miserable and depressed deep down. It bubbles to the surface all the time and i get tired in my head of feeling sad. I had a Gambling addiction for 5 years which i beat by myself in the end, it makes me sick to go near betting now, i wish the same could be said about depression but it always comes back to me, im fedup of feeling bad :(

Having read other peoples posts I can see im not the only one who feels crap alot of the time. My achilles heal is relationships when im in one i feel great but when it doesnt work and it looks like its going to end it brings out the deepest depression in me. I live to love but when love isnt around neither am I.

I have worked self employed for ages now, the thing is i dont get out enough to meet new people doing it and want to try something i find rewarding to myself, even when i do meet up with friends and have a good time out im left the next day feeling crap again, i know there are alot of people worse off than me in the world, but for me its like a living hell eating away at my spirit, I just dont want to live my whole life combating depression, its a scary thought.

I dont want to be a sympathy case and clog up these forums, lots of people need and deserve more support than me. Delete my threads please. Many thanks.

Same old story.

What do you mean by love?
I think you must develop friendships first, and then see what develops. Love is a long standing relationship. Friendship, co-operation - thought for the other person - discussing difficulties - sometimes a bit boring, but you get over that with the friendship element. It's not a drink in the bar and a one nigh stand.
Solution ? Why don't your encounters develop more? Are you not prepared to commit yourself? Are you meeting the wrong people? How is your physical health?
Cheer up, there are a lot of lonely people like you, but it takes work to make a good relationship.
Join a club where there are a number of people with interests the same as yours. What are your interests? Artistic, musial, sporting? Don't worry about feeling down, we all feel it at times. We have to put up with that :grouphug:occasionally and make some interest to fill in the dull times.

:welcome: sameoldstory. No-one's a case here ( or we all are :)). I often feel the same way that you do about there being other people a lot worse off than me, but that is no help at all when you are in the pit. You are certainly not clogging up the forum - we all learn from each other and that's what the forum is for. I really hope that you come back.

Nick.
