Why do people say depression is temporary?
This answer almost makes me sick. I know how long I've had this issue, and others as well. I've been seriously depressed since I was in the 6th grade. My mother even longer.
Are people afraid to think that someone can feel as low as you can for years? Do they just deny it or think that we are trying for attention? Do they think we are not trying?
These past year I put a serious effort into getting better. Bought clothes I like. Got a new doctor. Medication was fixed. Trying to get outside more and be generally more open and honest. And yet with all this, I still feel like **** and I've thought about suicide MORE!
