I need to talk!
chrissyriz posted:
Hello. I'm 16 years old and for the past year I have lost the ability to be happy. I don't know if it's depression or not but I would like to talk about it with someone.
Thanks for your time.

I have been diagnosed with severe-recurrent depression. I am also dysthymic, which basically means I'm in a depression episode that's lasted for quite some time now. I would be interested in talking to you. If you're curious as to weather you have diagnosable depression, I would recommend taking a depression test. If you look it up on google, you should find some. --Take care
