I'm away from my family now...

I never thought I'd take depression seriously because I was sure I'm ready for the life I'm going to live for two years when I went to work here in KSA. But maybe because I'm only human, I do feel that I miss them a lot, since I love them so much that I decided to work here in the first place, to provide a better life for them. I always thought I can set my emotions aside, but it does hurt being away. Which made me think I'd deal with it by writing about it on myLot. How do you deal with depression? I'd welcome all responses, I think I need to learn a lot about it now more than ever.

There are several ways to fight for it but its not easy and its not very quick! I understand your situation and truly appreciate your love and care for your family.I remember how also my dad sacrifice just to give us a good life! I just got here in USA last Feb and It a lot of adjustment too. Joining this site makes me feel good in the sense that I can express my feelings by responding to any topic within my interest. It helps in a way, then in your case, then I guess, you also need to chat with them once in a while since our world today is getting high tech. you can just see them by webcam or txt them in free by chikka or any site that offers free services!

Thanks for the responses. I do keep in touch with them. First thing I bought here was a laptop with a webcam so I can see them. It's just that when we're not online that I realize how precious time is, whereas before when I was home I sort of took things for granted since they're always there. Looking back I wish I had spent more time with them when I had the chance.

Well, sometimes its unavoidable that we feel depressed for the day..but for the health its not a good side, i believe in Meditation which will balance our mind and helps to be normal at situations.
