I wish I wasn't so screwed up and could actually work without freaking out about it. I am just not good around other people and don't deal with stress well. I am currently on disability but feel like I waste my days at home while the kids are in school. My Meds make me feel tired all the time so getting things done becomes a problem. I volunteer but sometimes I just don't feel like going in so I don't. I guess I am not the most reliable person. I have more bad days than good ones. It just stinks. I really want to be stable enough to work but I haven't felt like myself since the ect the doctors performed on me after my youngest was born which was 6 yrs ago. I feel like such a loser. Such a waste of space. I get suicidal thoughts all the time even though I don't plan on acting on them. Does anyone else feel this way? How do I get better? I've tried different Meds and I am currently in therapy.

I think a good idea is look for a social group to become a part of. some type of maybe support group... when you feel isolated depression can feel much worse. maybe you could find a job "behind the scenes" so you dont have to work in close contact with many people? I feel like a waste of space some days, i too am on disability, but for a physical reason (my back has severe degeneration of the disks) i tell my husband i really need a job, i want a job.. and he doesnt feel i should work just to hurt myself, and be even more miserable. I have a fantastic support system of people that know just what to say to spunk me up :) I hope you can find something that works for you!

 i feel the same way. i am tired all the time and it interferes with me getting things done around the house. i wanted to go back to work part time but im not sure i can handle it. i know i cant right now. i need to exercise and get my strength back and then think about going back to work. i am on disability also. but i was a nurse before that. im thinking about getting a treadmill to get my strength back up but until then i just try to keep my spirits up and think positive.

Im sorry you feel this way! Keep doing what your doing...change comes in little steps but it does come. How long have you been on your current meds? In therapy?

I am right there with you. I wish I had answers, but I could have written this post, right down to the effects of having ECT.

What I try to tell myself is that I am doing the best I can. I stay on my meds, that help a little, and therapy that also helps and try to do my best around the house.
