What's New in Major Depression
Community Voices

Hi. I'm new here.

I'm a 53 year old woman who was born with cerebral palsy. I'm also an abuse survivor who struggles with depression. Although I wouldn't change the events of my life, I would certainly change my responses to them, if only to shield others from the effects of the events. #Abuse #MajorDepression

I just started EMDR therapy. Yesterday we went through my trauma history. I’ve been in therapy for 10 years but my therapist thought I would benefit from EMDR. To do this I have to see a different therapist. I didn’t realize having to go through my trauma again would impact me the way it did. The dreams I had from doing that were crazy! I just want to get on with it because I hear it’s very beneficial. Any experience and tips for me are welcome. Have a good day!

My psychiatrist wants to change my antidepressant. Actually, I'm on Zoloft and she wants to change it with prozac. I just want to feel better.

These are recent valuable words from one of our group members -to help inspire every group member to write your own posts within Our Member-Led group

“Share your worst pain openly. I am unable to judge you negatively, because I understand.
Let out some of your pain, be heard, and be understood.”

“More valuable is that we can share our pain with people we know really understand it. This is a way to release some of our pain, and to not feel so alone…..We have done things to make this happen. Maybe we have something more than empathy to share.”
