Depression Support Center Depression Support Center

Starting over and a bit depressed.

I filed for divorce last month, something that I knew was coming for a few years, but I never expected to get depressed about not having someone physically there to talk to. I don't miss my ex, but I do miss the feeling of having someone there to talk to when I needed them. I've been staying with my parents for a few weeks until I get back on my feet, but that in itself is depressing after living on my own. The more time I spend here the worse the depression gets, not only because I'm back at my parents house, but also because the friends I used to be able to count on aren't there for me anymore so essentially I feel really alone.

It's hard to get back out there and make a new life when all I've known for the last 5 years is my ex and my son. So starting over and trying to find a new job is pretty stressful, especially when I don't have anyone to talk to and vent to when I need to.

 hugs! I've been there, too. it's hard feeling lonely, but at the same time just remind yourself that it's better to be on your own, than with someone who makes you feel like crap.

Welcome to the group. You can talk to us here anytime you want.  It takes time to grieve a relationship breaking up.

Starting over is very hard, but its also very rewarding, maybe try to write a list of goals you want to see short term and long term, as well as some fun stuff you always wanted to try, and see if you can make a plan to move forward.
