I have lost my identity and don’t even know what makes me happy anymore.
I have suffered from depression for a long amount of time and even though it’ll never go away I am much better with all the help I have gotten. But I have been depressed for so long I guess I don’t even know what I like. I don’t have a hobby but would like to find one. I don’t really have any friends and don’t know how to make them. I would like to have a social life, maybe find some friends and do something but I don’t know how to find them. I am a 40yr old working woman, married with children. My family is great. My husband has his sports he liked to do with his brothers, and I wish I could have something like that. Something I enjoy and share with friends.

Maybe its stress, your lack of energy or just self-esteem to try something new is the problem?
Possibly but I think my self-esteem is good and I have more energy than I used to. That’s partly why I now crave a social life where as before I didn’t want anything to do with it.
Hmmm… from what you describe you have alredy much accomplished and amazing life. You know what cause your depression?
No, just genetics I guess. There is depression in the family. Mom, aunt, sister etc.
Im born genetic pessimist to, my family from mother side have much chance to get depression disorders. Only problem is what you say a big differences between depressions types. You from what i can say… and im not good with that sort of thing… have just normal seasonal low or ‘major’ depression but thats not end of the world. I don’t want to be rude any way but you try to seek professional help?
Maybe try just see thing from little brighter side or try something new.
Pessimist and depression are two different things. I suffer Dystimic Depression and I have gotten help and medication. It’s a chemical imbalance. I don’t understand what you are trying to say but I know the differences between different types of depression.
Join a pottery class, book club, cooking class, or take dance classes. Excellent way to make new friends. You get to know some of the people and after a few weeks of classes you tell them you’re going to get a drink/coffee and ask if they want to join you.. Even if you don’t make any new friends right away, chances are that getting out of your comfort zone will make you feel like a kazillion dollars. I’m your friend now, good luck getting rid of me I’m stubborn
I feel a bit lost at the moment and feel unimportant, my partner is unsupportive and always wanting something . I am only 33 and have a 4 yr old, my time is going from one to the other.I have a few friends and no hobbies only house work boring!So I have decided to join aqua arobic and you should think about something yourself.my partner is always goig on about how fat i am . I am not really that big (curvie).I do love him but feel since not working i am not really interesting to him and no body wants to talk to me..life is not great but not bad . It is hard to find happiness , i think having children is hard work and you loose yourself.
Wow, I came here looking for answers and found out thar I am not alone. Im sorry I cant help you but I feel exactly the same way. I am 39 married to a great guy, great kids but something is just missing. I have also had depression but react badly to medicine. I was actually thinking of going to see a shrink to try to figure this out. But the sadness can be so heavy at times.
hey all i am only 16 and i feel as though i have no identity and am merely a ghost afloat in a world of persona. I do suffer from depression but have neglected to seek help as my parents dont take it seriously even though this is a genetic disorder in my family. i also smoke marijuana on a regular basis but its of good quality and therefore smoke very small quantities. i feel i dont have a niche in society…..but my advice to you would be to just go out at night and wander and look for conversation. develop a personal agenda……
Because you’re forgotten Krishna!! Try mantra meditation like chanting Hare Krishna. This will cure you very quickly without any doubt. You may think its crazy, but it no coincidence this message is coming to you.

i have lost identity feelings, my mother is australian was born there and came here when she was 20 and met my english dad, had us kids and has been here ever since, she goes back loads but has never taken me, but only twice once when i was 2 and when i was 9, i was so depressed when i got back as the weather here is so bad, and i missed the beaufiful deep blue skies and strong sun. my mums mum died in 1988 and she went back to oz just before she died and got to say goodbye, she left me behind and i never got to say goodbye. i have a whole load of family out there and hardly know them, i feel like i dont know my mum, she doesnt know my australian side as i dont know it either, i feel disorientated and embaressed that i dont know half of who i am and my mum seems to know and delights that i dont know, she is always oneup on me because of it, its not fair, and i feel an ignorance that makes me feel stupid.
WTH! depression and loneliness, hehe just afraid of living. lame, so… don’t be
