That is certainly true, Hntina, but at least it goes away some of the time.

I like to think of depression as like my anorexia or as alcoholism, they are things that wont get cured and I'll have to live with for the rest of my life taking one day at a time and fighting them each day...

I have been treated for Depression and anxiety for 32 years , since I was 15 ... You are never cured , you just adapt to being able to cope . I always look at some poor person that is worse off than I am and still cheerful and it gives me strength . I know in my heart I am a decent human being and that I deserve to be happy ... My mind works to serve me what I truly feel I deserve ... The power of your mind is incredible ... If you can get it working for you rather than against you , then you can learn to manage your condition a lot better .. I send you all my very best wishes . If I can help anyone in any way , I will frequently be on here

I've been dealing with depression for the last 4 years of my life. I've had 2 years of mental health treatment, seen various therapists, and I started to get better, I was able to deal with things more, but lately I can feel myself slipping again, I'm trying so damn hard to pull myself back up, but I'm finding it a little difficult atm.

My best wishes to you both . My strategy is to do everything possible that can be of no harm that could be of benefit . Refer yourself for one to one counselling ( via Therapy for you ) or CBT ... or a stress and mood management group , anything that will give you an agenda that makes you feel more positive . Tablets will only help you get your head above water , the rest is down to you . I will help you all in any way I can ... I have suffered depression for 32 years and I am still here , so I must be doing something right . I truly have been to hell and back . My life has been a roller coaster ride but to my credit I did get custody of my two daughters who have grown up now . Think of all the people that are dear to you and how much they want to see you happy , it really helps me lift myself a bit . Keep your mind occupied as much as you can for it is impossible to focus on something and your worries at the same time .. I hope you all have a lovely weekend :-) x

I am here to help everyone of you ... I have an extensive knowledge of medication , having tried 38 different antidepressants in my life time , we all react differently , but I can tell you what works for me . I have never been as stable as I am presently ... I have a number of health issues , but all things considered , I am doing very well . @aria88 , you can beat alcoholism as I have by cross addicting to something that isn't harmful ... I put all my energy into fitness and doing gym .. looking after yourself can become an addiction that can replace something bad ... day by day you can change your mind and your body if you are very determined ... my sincere best wishes to you x
