Senior depression

Posted by MADILE

I've been depressed since I was 16.  Mom constant stae was depression and dad was an alcoholic.  Now I'll be 62 and it feels worse.  Tired of meds working for 2 months and then stopping.  Living alone and being senior is a bad combination.  Do not look forward to the present or future.  I've given up hopes, dreams, wishes - too old to change jobs, unable to retire.  Nothing to look forward to.  Glad when I can go to sleep period.
