Group Beyond Blue member Blondie started an interesting thread on Group Beyond Blue at Beliefnet Community called “Letting go of someone you thought loved you.” She writes:

Unfortunately, 4 years ago I fell in love with my boss. It has affected my depression and moods so much and now I have to let go of a dream that I had. Unfortunately he is married. Anyone have any suggestions? Why did I get involved in the first place? This is not something that is healthy and I realize that it is a sin to love someone that is not yours. I do have to say that I believed 4 years ago when he said he was leaving his wife but not because of me he was already taking those steps so …. I let myself get involved. 

Now, I have to work for him and with him and shove away all the emotions and feelings. Hard to deal with because there is a part of me that is so angry with myself and him.

My doctor just switched me to Pristiq so I am hoping that this might help deal better when I am at the office. Effexor was just not working. Making me very aggressive and more angry.

Other than finding another job how do I get back to just being an employee and friend?

Just need to know if I am alone in this?

When does reciting scripture become a symptom of neurosis? Or praying the rosary an unhealthy compulsion? Not until I had the Book of Psalms practically memorized as a young girl did I learn that words and acts of faith can morph into desperate measures to control a mood disorder, that faithfulness and piety can disguise acute […]

One of my mom’s best pieces of advice: “Hang with the winners.” This holds true in support groups (stick with the people who have the most sobriety), in college (find the peeps with good study habits), and in your workplace (stay away from the drama queen at the water cooler). Why? Because we actually become […]

For people prone to depression and anxiety – i.e. human beings – the holidays invite countless possibility to get sucked into negative and catastrophic thinking. You take the basic stressed-out individual and you increase her to-do list by a third, stuff her full of refined sugar and processed foods, force her into social gatherings at […]
