Hi. I'm new here. I have been feeling very depressed and have no one to talk to. I'm going through the hardest time of my life. My daughter is suffering from depression, adhd and anxiety and it's affecting our communication. She is 12. Also everyone is not here when I need them most. Even my own brothers ignore my messages. I have been out of work and laying on my bed the entire day. I don't have energy or enjoy things I used to. On top of that my car is no longer worth repairing. Which makes our lives very complicated as I have many appointments as well as my daughter. I feel so lonely it's unbearable. I feel like I am in survival mode but I don't know how long I can take this pain

Thank you so much for your advice. I am doing my best to be strong for her. She is seeing a psychiatrist and I am making appointments to see a therapist. I am doing all this while I am falling apart. I have a history of bad depression and I feel like I am hitting rock bottom. The only thing that keeps me going is her. She only has me. Her father passed away and my mom. This happened in 2 months. First my mother and her father 2 months after. My mother was like a mother to her and she was my only support.

I wake up and when I open my eyes for a second I think that everything is just a nightmare

I'm so sorry for the loss of your daughter's father and your mother as well as all that you are going through. It's encouraging to see that your daughter is receiving the help she needs with the psychiatrist and that you are aware enough of your own needs and making appointments for yourself. You need to take care of you so you can take care of your daughter. Are there things that you and your daughter enjoy together? Maybe making a point to get out for a walk every day, making a meal together, reading a book together for a few minutes every evening prior to going to bed. Just spending a few minutes everyday doing something to draw the two of you together could do wonders to lift your spirits. It won't make the problems go away but it just might make them a little more tolerable and maybe even allow your mind to find some solutions when you least expect it. Are you involved in a local faith group? Go to church? Many of them have wonderful resources to help those in need within their community. I will be keeping you and your daughter in prayer. Keep making small steps, one foot in front of the other. We're here for you to support and encourage you every step of the way.
