    Hey all... was lurking for a little while but decided to post and say hello to try and maybe get some help/support.

    Little background, 30-something female with a chronic long term illness.

    I have depression as a result of the illness (I'm pretty sure it's not the other way around as I have been through tough times but never found myself in the black pit before), it is unfortunately one of the symptoms.

    I'm currently housebound - I do not work as I am not able to and I am feeling... well.... very bleak right now.

    I am a drain on my nearest and dearest and feel like a burden to everyone (emotionally and financially). My marriage is on the verge of breakdown and I simply cannot see the point in struggling on any more.

    Anyways... it's nice to meet you guys and finally vent my feelings.

    Thanks for the welcome :)

    It does actually feel better to get something 'out there' if you know what I mean. Actually admitting how I feel makes me feel less like I need to scream all the time.

    Just in that place where everything feels wrong... and I don't know if I can put it all right.

    Things never used to be like this - only 3 short years ago I was very happy with my life. Funny how things can change so easily isn't it?

    What's the sticker tag? I'm a little slow... :rolleyes:

    Don't worry, I don't need any food... I'm trying to lose weight which I hate!
