8 Years And Counting

The first time I realized I was so depressed I couldn't even get out of bed was 8 years ago. Since then I've been to 3 therapists but none of then seen to get me and I don't feel it's helping me anyhow. I also lost my dad the only person that has ever loved me unconditionally 3 Years ago. The only person that I have in my life is my mom but she is too much into herself to realize I need a mother to guide me even though I'm 22.

I've been depressed for a while, but there's something about being in your twenties that is just...terrible. I think a lot of it is feeling lost, because we're supposed to be getting degrees and becoming totally independent and living on your own and finding a good job, etc. There's so much pressure, on top of everything else. I hope you find someone who understands you, even a little. I haven't found a therapist that has understood depression, except what they have read in textbooks. Just don't stop hoping and working towards feeling better.
