I can't take this pain. Something happened and it's so hard, it takes me right back to when my dad ends up in the wheelchair. I'm depressed, and hurting from all of this pain now and I can't make it go away. I have been trying to act happy at school and with my friends and family and it's too hard and I can't do that anymore. I can't make this pain go away. I just want to cry,it's too much. I don't know anymore. What do I do?

I remember feeling exactly that way.

Actually, I'm fortunate I don't actually remember it very well. It's not something I'd want to remember anyway.

Hardest part was to pursue it as a medical problem. It certainly seemed like the problem was with the world, not with me!

The picture of the world I was seeing was very dark and grim, and it was painful! As you say. Weird kind of pain that didn't really exist anywhere I could point to; it wasn't in a particular part of my body, it wasn't in a particular part of the room, but it was definitely there!

In hindsight I realize the problem wasn't with the picture, the problem was with the camera.

The good news is there is a way out. There is hope you won't have to live like this forever.

The weird news is it's a medical problem. So go see a doctor. The doctor may refer you to a specialist, or he may start treating you immediately by prescribing a medication for you to try, or both. He may do a few tests to rule out other causes, such as low thyroid. (I don't remember what the tests are. Basically, check the blood for whatever they can check it for to make sure there's nothing obviously wrong there.)

I know it seemed really stupid to expect a pill to fix all my problems with the world and make that pain go away. Sounded like a cover-up band-aid approach. But this class of medications is different. When you find the right one that works for you, it slowly fixes whatever was wrong underneath, and then things start working properly again, the pain subsided, and I feel much more "normal" now.

Here's a link to a story describing how one recovers that may help:

Depression as a Medical Illness

http://www.wingofmadness.com/depress...cal-illness-19

Most important is to know there is hope. Doctors who deal with this medical illness will recognize it right away. Fortunately there are a lot of medications to try nowadays, so there's bound to be one that works. May have to try several different ones before finding it. Definitely worth it when I finally found that one that worked for me!

Hope you feel better soon. Best wishes.

Let yourself know it is okay to cry and be sad. If it gets too hard to cope with, perhaps you can write down your feelings and thoughts on a little diary if you are not comfortable with speaking to anyone about it. But of course, I'd suggest you talk to a counsellor & see how things can work out for you from there.
