Hi, I am definitely avoiding situations that might cause problems.
I stay away from "people" and pretty much isolate myself, which I
know is considered a bad thing to do for depression, but I get so tired
of starting to feel good, and then getting upset about something and diving back
down.

I work at home selling stuff on eBay most of the time, which already isolates
me. I have had to work as hard as I can in order to pay my bills, which is a constant
problem. But this seems to be better for me than working in an office or somewhere else.
I do not like to be around people, especially in any social situation where I feel
stuck and can't leave if I am upset. I have felt much better since I decided to live like
this. I just wish I had more money. I applied for disability about two or three years ago, and
have been turned down and appealing, but I don't think I am going to get it. Hard to
prove depression, panic attacks, etc. can be disabling. Pam
