It has been a really long time since my last thread post. Not many people understand the loneliness that comes with depression. It is a genuine inability to be happy. You smile for loved ones so they don't have to worry about you because let's face it...it just makes things worst when they do. It get's me sometimes...you look around and see people that are genuinely happy or are they faking too? Who can you really talk to about this? I had a therapist for a while and I had high hopes for this but, all they did was ask me if I was doing better than last week and tried to shove medication down my throat. The things that should give me pleasurelike the sun and when it's warm outside...doesn't. To readdress the the fact that you can't talk to anyone about this is if you try to talk to your loved ones about this...they tend to make it about them as if they could say or do anything to "fix me". Do other people with depression feel this way? This isn't about the blues....it's about my brain not wanting to do right. How is it possible to be lonely when you have people that love and care about you ? Who else feels this way. Am I alone in this?
