Hello all, I am a fellow depressive. I suffered from depression since childhood, and I say this because my mother had told me that she'd ask the doctors why I slept soo much, and even the doctors said that the amount I slept was very unusual, but they couldn't figure out why. I was in my early 20s when I was finally officially diagnosed with major depression; the disease that ran through my father's side of the family. This all helped explain why I lead such an apathetic life. Always feeling tired, lethargic, and a lot of anger/sadness towards myself because I always felt like I kept letting everyone else down, because of my depression and the effects it had on me. I've spoken to shrinks but there was never anything they could tell me that I already didn't know. I've also been prescribed pretty much every pill out there that doctors use to treat depressives- some have worked, but after a little while I'd gain tolerance so the effects would wear off. Though, I am a pretty motivated person, so I did a lot of research on my own because the doctors didn't really help me all that much. 8 years later I got it figured out. Now, I just wanna make sure that everyone else knows what I know, so they can feel as I feel.
