Hi guys, my name is Michelle, I'm 20 years old and I suffer with major depressive disorde. This has been in control of my life for nearly 4 years now and it doesn't seem to get any better. I've seen councillors and psychiatrists but it just results in me feeling worse.
Hi Michelle I've had depression for 25 yrs , I know how low this condition gets you I've seen counselors and psychiatrists which like you I found didn't help. So I decided to go to university to find out about my conditions through psychology and it's helped me understand the feeling I go through and to stop getting as low as I did now I love life I still get the low feelings now and again but I understand my conditions now , maybe you could take a psychology course to help you just a thought
@Pauline Davies I've never thought about that and it is a great idea! Get the info by myself and learn to know what is happening to me. I think it is great advice and I'll try to look for some courses.
@MichBrad I assure you that with time it will get better, you just have to hang in there
Hi Michelle glad to hear that, I found out about depression and how it can get you feeling really bad and u think your alone etc it does really help , and now I've got a new life I'm training to help others as a support worker for the mental health issues before I hated myself now I don't before I felt I couldn't do anything right now I can if u gan get on a course Michelle it will turn your life around instead of feeling worthless u get your confidence and self esteem back while educating your self about your illness I'm plessed your going to try it because depression is very hard to live with , well done
Hey Michelle :) I'm 18 and I seem fine to everyone every day but then just feel down when I'm on my own.. It's awful isn't it? I wish I knew how to stop the feeling... It won't last forever will it?
It won't last forever no, everyone has good and bad days and I know yo probably feel everyday is bad but honestly it's not
