  1. KiT, It definitely sound like, for the most part, you seem to be doing a lot of the things that you should be doing to combat your depression. I know that it can be frustrating when medications, therapy, St. John's Wort, and other treatments don't work or only work so well. The only thing that I can suggest is that you keep trying anything that you think might help give you the boost that you need. I can't guarantee that you'll return to the way that you felt before the onset of your depressive symptoms, but I would keep your eyes open for treatment strategies that might prove to be beneficial. At least that's what I've been doing. Will it pay off? I'm not sure, but I think it's worth sticking around in case the improvement that I need is just around the corner. Tomatheus Thanks Tomatheus, your words are very encouraging. I think i will do what you suggested and weigh my options out. Maybe something will work out. The only thing I'm afraid of is having this depression as a crutch for the rest of my life. I want to just enjoy life for once you know.
  2. Hey liftmeup, thanks for the kind words. I'm glad that people like us can communicate over the internet. I'm sure we have both had our struggles and things. I have actually tried group as well. I did it for about 4 months and I was too shy so I felt that it didn't benefit me as much. But since you seem to be a big believer in it then maybe I will try it again. What you said about the past is 100% true. No matter how hard I try, the past is the past and I can't do anything about it. My only concern is will my future be brighter or will my life take a turn for the worst? Sometimes I feel like things will only get worse. KiT
  3. I am glad so many people here are so welcoming. Right now I am now Prozac and yeah I do go see a therapist. I have seen one for more than a year now. I have skipped around medicine, starting with Welbutrin and going to Prozac and one more. I have tried St. John's Wort and it was alright. I hear that exercise is good but I just can't seem to muster up the motivation to do it. I am doing pretty poorly in school now and I just want things go back to the way they were when I was not depressed, but to me it just feels like wishful thinking. I have a lot of finacial problems as well and this is only aggrivating the problem. KiT
  4. Hello, I have dealt with problems with depression for about 7 years now. (I am 21 now). I just don't have the motivation to do things anymore. I don't care about school and my future and my relationship (or lack of). I just feel like I am floating in the ocean of life and not caring where it takes me. I have been on medication for years now and it makes me feel better but not feel more motivated to accomplish things. What can I do? I miss actually LIVING life you know. KiT
  5. I am new to this board. To introduce my situation briefly, I am a 22 year old college male and I have been diagnosed with depression for about 4 years now. I have had the symptoms for about 7 years but i was too scared to tell anyone I had a problem so i kept it to myself for about 3 years. So most of my high schools years were taken over by this condition. I never dated and have no experience/ interest in dating when I was in high school. I am 22 now and as I see my friends pairing off and going separate ways, I kinda wanna do the same but I feel like depression is crippling to the point were its too hard. Long story short, I want to date and but am too scared. I don't want to suffer a massive heartbreak. I also feel socially awkward at times and I just don't know. I want to get one with my life and just live it but depression keeps pulling me back. Any advice forum?
  6. I have been on medication for about 3 years on and off and i was wondering if depression ever comes to an end or if it will drag on until the day i die.
  7. i am a 22 year old male who has suffered with severe depression since about freshman year in high school. Its been close to 7 years since my diagnosis and i feel like the majority of my life has been robbed from my by this illness. I am slowly recovering but things may not be the same. I am just wandering through life looking for lasting happiness. Good to meet yall
