    Re: Depression

    I know the feeling of depression. I was depressed about 6 years. The reason for it was that my mother died from Type 2 Diabetes. I was very depressed and blame myself for her death. But I realized it wasn't my fault and sometimes I still feel that way.

    I know that. I mean I give her insulin everyday but it wasn't enough. I mean if the doctors would find a cure for type 2 diabetes years ago she would've been alive today and I would be very happy to see her.

    Welcome back. I'm so glad you were able to find a way out of the worst of it. It's a struggle and sometimes neverending.

    I agree with you. Depression is a scary thing to experience.

    hello and welcome back! I'm glad you are getting help and have a good support system!
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Depression

    Best thing that helped me when I had the major depression,was helping others,in the system to cope,it took my mind off me,and out of the never ending loop of pity me thinking.Positive helped me a LOT. Worked for me,and I was at one time sitting with a gun in my mouth thinking,"why not",so you know I was very down. what stopped that was imagining my son finding me after, could not do that to him.

    Brain issues are a thing I understand. Everybody here understands. Welcome back!
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I do hobbies such as playing card games and doing tarot reading which helps my depression.

    Thing is each of us is born with a terminal illness,I am type 2 diabetic,but not even myself could save" me,if my time is come to be here. I keep to my diet and try to do all the things they tell me "may" protect me from complications,but life is a fickle thing,there were several times I came as close to checking out as one can,and came to in a hospital,with the docs saying,you should be dead,but by a fluke of life,here you are still with us. I have always known I am mortal,and in time the reaper will,come to collect on all my 9 lives. Live long,and prosper as Spock used to say. major thing is enjoy life to the limit,because mortal is all of us. never waste time,it is not endless,the sands will run out.
