searching mom replied to Blackosaur's discussion Missing social life. Is it because of MDD?
"Blackosaur...I am not a DDr but am somewhat shy and always have been.  It is easy to be in a group and seem like you are invisible.  I do know, however, that talking to people and making friends is easier when you have interesting things…"

"The fact that you are here learning about it, shows you care.  I was excited when I found this site, and also a name for what my daughter does, but when I talked to her about it she didn't even go online and research.  I'm sure…"

"Kitt,  Thank you for your comments.  I think you are correct that it has become a default for my daughter also. If you don't mind me asking, how did you meet your husband? She has been in two relationships but now has no interest and…"

"Support doesn't have to be active to be effective. People who are stuck out of reality can't be pulled back in, they have to find their own way to re-sync with the world around them, and the more value they find in it the easier it will…"

"Beautifully written. I have a good friend who dreams. I told him about this site and he just listened but does not share much. He tries hard to interact with the real world, holds a driving job, dances and reads. I would do anything I can to help…"

Kitt Coltrane replied to searching mom's discussion What does a person on the outside do?
"Searching, I used MDD as a coping mechanism for childhood abuse. Now, it is my natural default when I feel uncertain, fearful and scared. I like my MDD because it is a safe place to fall. I pretend in my real life as I go through motions, settled…"

"Thank you, Aziz...I am finding this out more and more.  Had our first appointment with a counselor (went some years ago but starting new) and she had some great ideas.  Choosing things that are pleasing in reality will act as a reward to…"

"Ranting is completely acceptable on a forum page...the fact that you are on here trying to help others proves you are going in the right direction.  It's a choice we have to make every day, to live above the line.  Some days are…"

"Sorry, I deleted my last message. I think I ranted a bit more than I intended to. But you're right, we're not really receptive to advice until we're ready for it. So it's a bit silly to constantly think about what might have…"

"Matthew...as the phrase goes "I don't know the amount that I don't know!"  You are providing information that I have never researched so that is my next step.   I was actually very frustrated with my parents…"

"Camoran...again, excellent comments from you and you clearly have battled these things yourself.  I did see the information and printed off an article about MDD and gave it to her.  I was excited to see that it had a name and was not truly…"

Camoran replied to searching mom's discussion What does a person on the outside do?
"I'll be honest, your daughter's situation looks bleak to me, but it's a very good thing that you're actively trying to help. As Matthew pointed out, it can make the difference between the problem being solved in a matter of…"

MatthewR replied to searching mom's discussion What does a person on the outside do?
"I really, really sympathize with you and your daughter. I was the same way at her age (I'm 32 now). Unfortunately, my parents never intervened, and I only spiraled further into self-imposed isolation. I dropped out of school and lost the few…"
