Isolation and Covid-19. WE OFFER ZOOM & SKYPE -CHECK OUR PAST BLOGS HERE FOR MORE INFO!

In our basic text, Depressed Anonymous, one of the words that show up most frequently are the words, Isolation, trust and surrender. It is not surprising that the word isolation  is at the top of the list. Isolation is one of those behaviors that can keep us in depression, alone, and deepening  a mood  of feeling  hopeless .

With  the corona virus causing death, terror among all people of the earth, it has also forced us to quarantine   ourselves from everyone else. Our isolation, in this case, can save our life and keep us from getting infected and suffer a painful death.

Let’s say I am depressed already and isolating because of my need to withdraw from , family and friends and suffer with my  pain alone.  What do I do now?  Who and what can help me?  I am feeling desperate. I used to go to the market, the park and at least get out of my apartment. I could feel part of the world and the life around me. At least I had the knowledge that I could go out and be with others, without having to talk or even  say  hello.  Now I feel like I’m  all alone   on a  deserted  island.

If you are depressed and reading this now, you can find help online at the  Depressed Anonymous website www.depressedanon.com.  We have a daily   International  Online Depressed Anonymous SKYPE  meeting  at 12:30  pm (CST) and at 1:30 PM ( EST) . We also have  four  ZOOM meetings, One on Sunday (today)  at 4-5PM EST and again on Tuesday at 3-4pm .   We  hope that you can take advantage of these peer led 12 step meetings. I recommend them to you.  Please come and join our fellowship.  We are people with hope.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

For the fellowship.
