Me and Myself..

 I've been to therapy, and I've been to group meetings, but nothing will help me get over my depression... I was diagnosed 3 years ago, and now I am 22 and still coping with this thing that feels like a constant, permanent poison... I can't open up to people, not even my fiance, because he can't stop blaming himself when I get depressed, although I tell him that he's okay, it just me.. I really don't know what do to, and after 3 years of constant fighting, I have lost the point of actually living... I lost all my career passion and zest for life itself, and I really need help... I haven't used any antidepressants, because my doctor keeps telling me I can get through this myself... I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this... thank you..

If you are so depressed that you don't want to live at such a young age you should definitely try some medication. It sounds to me like you should see another doctor. Do you have any family that can help you with your medical treatment. Never give up-you will get better. Some day you will look back at this bad time and see how wonderful your life is and will be glad you kept trying to get healthy.

Depression is the feeling of hopelessness. A person doesn't want to do anything or socialize with anyone.<br />
They stop taking care of themselves.<br />
<br />
It is a treatable illness. It may never go away but it can be controlled.<br />
<br />
It is an extremely misunderstood illness.<br />
<br />
If your interested I have some ideas that may help.
