    Sooo basically, i have seasonal depression

    and no amount of medication,self harm,drugs or anything can help me, and i find it difficult to interact with other people as my family and friends do not understand what i feel like, and it would be great to talk to someone who can actually empathise with my emotions :(

    Sometimes random waves of depression just

    I Can Remain Positive!

    I've stopped the self harm a long time ago, I battle my depression on my own and it comes and goes. Counseling didn't work or help for me, it actually only made things worse. I had to find my own way. Medication also doesn't work for me. I do the best I can which is all one can...
