I am 19 and I survived Depression
Depression has been a very difficult struggle for me since I was a kid. It took me forever to figure out what was going on in my brain and what I could do to fix it. I tried going to therpy but I wasnt good at talking to people. It got do bad that I finally decided to go to the doctor and see if antidepressants would help. I was having major thoughts of suicide and I just felt so heavy all the time; when I wasn't over-emotional. I started on Prozac and after a few weeks I started to feel more stable. I haven't cried in months. And sure I'll still feel down for no reason occasionally but it's not so dark anymore. Hold on because there are people who can help you find your way to surviving..
