I Need To Talk, I'm Feeling Very Depressed
by Marvic Wright
I'm going through a situation with my husband and I want it to work, but where do I start? I just need someone I can talk to and confide in. Right now I have no one.
First of all, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help. It is great that you took that first step.
I know from my 11 year marriage that marriage takes a lot of hard work and dedication, that's for sure! Throughout our marriage we have had our highs, our lows and our very lows! There are many times where I am certain we are heading for the bid "D" (divorce) and then we manage to pull together, work through our issues and make things better than ever. What I have found is that each rough patch has ultimately made our marriage stronger.
There are many depression hotlines for you to choose from. You can find a complete list at my Depression Hotlines
Choose the best option that fits your situation. For instance, if you are in an abusive relationship then I would recommend reaching out to a domestic violence hotline. They can provide support for both the abuse and the depression. Or, of course, if you are just depressed and there is no abuse then go directly to a depression / crisis hotline.
No matter who you call, they will be able to provide immediate support and most likely help you find resources that are in your local community.
Thanks for reaching out. I truly wish you all the best. Believe in yourself and continue moving ahead with the courage that you obviously possess and know that, with a little work and perseverance,things will get better very soon!
