I Am Sick of Feeling Depressed

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,475 People

    I'm so tired of fighting depression!

    Like I could be having a perfect day but as soon as I feel it coming on I kinda just instantly give up and lose all motivation because I can't stand just thinking about going through it all again. Any suggestions?

    People who use the term "depressed"

    so loosely and aren't clinically depressed really need to understand the difference. Being sad, love sick, tired, lonely, bored, frustrated, confused etc. doesn't always equate to real depression. When you're depressed, you literally feel like you're stuck in a deep, dark...

    I only ever feel happy

    when good things happen, or when there is a distraction. The rest of the time I feel depressed, empty and strangely sad. I'm sick of it though, because I want to be happy, and I don't want to feel like this. I wouldn't say I'm depressed, I'd just say I'm dissatisfied and empty...

    My depression started

    when I was diagnosed with coeliac disease; as my whole life seemed to change. That was over a year ago, and the past few days I've been in some real pain; I've had enough of hospitals and doctors for a lifetime, I just wish I didn't have this illness.
