It Is My Fifth Year

I have been depressed for almost five years...I am 18 years old now, I was diagnosed with moderate depression in year 8, I am now in my final year at high school...I now have severe clinical depression, I cant imagine how it can possibly get any worse than this...I am trying to convince my doctor to put me back onto meds...I am still not sure if it is right thing to do

try and get to the beach .take up surfing or any phisical sport it will help you to generate a feelgood factor and this i promise you will help draw you out of this downward spiril which has now started to become a way of life for you.

Wow, if the stores were open right now I'd go buy some Goji juice if it works. I'm so depressed tonight. I took Prozac for 12 years and weaned myself off of it. I'm so glad I did but I do have times when I'd like to have it back again. I take 5 HTP which helps the body make its own seretonin and that helps. I'm just depressed tonight because I have a toothache and know how much it's going to cost to get it fixed. <br />

Penguin Girl - Try some natural things if you can and see if that doesn't help. Just know that maybe tonight you think there is no way up - but tomorrow will be different - tomorrows always are. <br />

I'm going to take a pain pill and go to bed I think.
