    Good evening Nellie.

    Happy Birthday! Don't feel you're alone dealing w/these feelings of loss. You had said that this was your first b/day celebration in 30 years. You feel bad because you missed out on these celebrations w/your family and father and friends. You have every right to be feeling sad. I know I certainly felt the same way.

    Hormonal changes can really put you in a tailspin. Stress can affect the balance of the hormones also. That's good that you are going to your dr. and sounds good to have a good cry. That's one of the ways your body deals w/a lot of stress and sadness.

    Have a good time w/your new friends, Nellie. It takes time to heal.

    Gumby, come back! We need you. Different points of view are always helpful.

    (BTW, Gumby, check out kid-A's post on the thread started by minimus earlier today. I believe there's a need for your special services.)

    Leaving a cult takes a while to recover. I haven't had parents in many years, lost my Mom when I was 14.

    Try to enjoy the "now" ... and the family that are supportive to you.

    We love you too

    I too have bad feelings that I did not have the opportunity to wish my mother A Happy Mothers day after thirty years in the org. or spend Christmas with her or Birthdays, she died before I could relate my feelings to her,but as I'm learning you cant look back because it will make you sick.So look after yourself and be happy.

    Well, you don't have to be a female to be depressed or hormonal. Guys bottle it up and play with guns. It's good to have a balanced viewpoint on depression, so get back here Gumby and bring another guy.

    I concur, see your doctor, and rule out anything organic. Talk to your doctor about any groups that give you some IRL perspective.

    Does anyone EVER feel they've done enough...especially when they lose someone they love? Is there ever a person who feels they were the perfect child/mate? I'm still gonna call my mom.

    Btw...I left a post after KidA's post. Aint noooobdy stealin by buisness!

    Yes, I'd say gumby's problem is biological too. An excess of estrogen. Time for one of them high-power protein energy drinks, m'boy.

    I'm so sick of depression. I wish mine would go away. But it seems to have moved in and found a nice place to stay. Dammit.
