  devil I posted here a while ago about being in a deep depression threw advice i sought proffessonal help as i was barly able to get out of bed or leave the house.Well i got put on meds and have started councling and im waiting for an appt with psychiatrist.
The thing is im still negative and depressed even if its not as severe the fact the summers comming in helps, but im starting to think even with this help i will never truely recover that iv been left perminetly scared by this bout of depression.Like a personality change iv lost my vibrance and lust for life forever that ill never experience joy or feel properly alive again.Im now paranoid the neighbours are talking about me saying thats that weirdo that hardly left the house for months, paranoid when see people friends that they can all tell by looking at me iv had a breakdown , sense of me im withdrawn its like im still in this cacoon do you think after being so withdrawn for so long you can come out of it or is it going to be perniment damage i used to be so vibrant im scared my nuerotransmiters and seriton levels have been damaged because iv been so depressed,feel like such a freak like banished from society a missfit, to inadequite to function in society like i dont deserve to be happy i have a really lowselfestem what the hell is wrong with me was i just born an oddball?

Hi livepast! I'm sorrry to hear that you are feeling this way about yourself. You have to understand that people that have never suffered from a breakdown or depression do not understand it at all and shouldnt judge us. We are the same as everyone else. I have had 2 breakdowns in my lifetime and I know people can be very cruel about things they don't understand. But don't let it get you down because you are doing whatever it takes to make your life better and that is what counts. Just know that you are not alone in this struggle and their are alot of people here that can help you. It takes a while for the meds to kick in so don't worry about that. Things will get better for you and you will not feel this way forever. All the things you are feeling right now are completely normal. Just take care of yourself, and I wish you the best of luck. We are here for you,when you need us.
