It's really horrible. I thought I was rid of it forever and for some 5 months everything seemed to be OK but it's coming back and it's so intense- it's like being smothered. I really don't want it to come back because it corrupts and effects everything in my life. I've had what I supose is severe depression for maybe a year or two- possibly 3. No one believed me and my GP said I was alright because I acted all perky so he would think I was alright... so i've not really done much about it beside trying to get on with life and ignore it. I dunno why it's come back- it just hits me now and again and it feels like everything is crashing down. I've also noticed how (being a sensitive person) over sensitive i'm become recently. A few things have happened which have turned life upside down as these things do but I wasn't prepared for it to suddenly come back. It's not all the time though- which is strange because it used to just sort of creep up on me, now it almost pounces and i'm really not sure what I should do about it. I could  see a GP but I don't see what could that would do because last time they tried to make me talk about it and talking really doesn't help if the problem can't be solved- it just brings it all back and it's only caused me more problems.
If anyone has any suggestions i'd be really really grateful. It's nice to be somewhere and know i'm not the only one going through a rough time now and again.

Hi She,

This time of the year is especially difficult.  But it will get better.  I think that Tiger has a good point when she said to go back to the pdoc.  A lot of times you seem to feel better when you go to the doctor, because you feel like you are going to get some help, and they think you are doing good.  When actually you aren't.  I have had that happen before, so now I carry a list of things that I want to talk about and I make sure I go over everything even if I am feeling better that particular day.  So write a list of all the things that are going on, or the doctor might not realize how depressed you really are. 

When you see a doctor, you are paying for their services.  They owe it to you to listen to what you have to say.  I think if you look at it that way, you will be more apt to get your point across.  Many times I have went and never got to the reason that I was there.  I realized I was wasting my money.  And they don't really know what is going on unless I tell them.

In the meantime keep posting here, we will help you in any way that we can.  There are a lot of good listeners here and a lot of people going through what you are going through so they understand.

Hugs to you,

welcome to the forums!
like mentioned above, it is especially rough around this time of year. i think its almost common for people to feel a little depressed now. all i can suggest is that talking in counseling has done wonders for me.  i understand what you mean when you say that talking doesnt help because it doesnt actually solve the problem, but its almost like taking steps. just understand that you're a wonderful person and its ok to be sensitive. i think that's good in people. try and stay focused on positive aspects of situations for a while and see how it turns out...
good luck!

I too wanted to welcome you to the forum.

I have been off of meds for 3 years now,and have to fight the depression everyday..and I am sure there might be a day where I have to go back into the doctor..

I don't think depression really goes away,I think it is something that we can get to a point where we can control it but it is still there lurking..

I would go to the doctor and take the step in fighting the depression.

Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing.
