I have suffered with depression all my life. No medication seems to help. So lonely - no friends. I hate everyday and hope I won't be on this earth much longer.

Nicky when I go to your video it comes up in spanish,

windinmysails I understand what your going through. Only thing is I've been on medicaion for 18 years and what I have works for me except I've been suffering depression symptoms again. They have been going on for 5 weeks now. I'm so stressed out that I myself don't want to go down this path again. There's alot my husband puts up with and it's time to stop it.

Agree- don;t give up. There are 9 classes of antidepressants, maybe 40 in total drugs and I have yet to meet someone who has tried them all. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right chemistry. There are also several types of therapy and counseling- same story gotta find the right one. To me, the brain is like a lot of switches- you have to find the right meds or therapy that flips the switches to an undepressed way of functioning. Wish we had a brain scanner, but we do not. So- have to try quite a few options sometimes..

I am so sorry that you feel this way. Do you have any interests that you can get your mind involved in? The more I read or knit or watch movies, for example, the better I feel. There are many times when I hope I don't live a long life either. But I would never take my own life and I have to find ways to keep going. I sincerely hope you do too.
