I can't tell you how not to be depressed, but it sounds like you need to talk to someone... I find I have highs and lows of depression, I've been low for a few days and found out I really need drugs to help me deal.... I ran out of my pristiq and was climbing the walls..... In the back of my mind I didn't think I needed them...And I agree with jamie you need something to keep your mind off your problems so much.... Its hard I know

i know exactly how you feel. i'm not sure what your situation is. but just a cliche advice, someone else always has it worse than what we are going thru, its so easy saying that, but what i'm dealing with i never think in that sence. how hope things get better for you, and we are all here for you.....

Medications and counseling is what helps me. Some of us can get by with out medications, but I cant. I would talk to the doctor if I was you. They can set you up for some help.

I know that depression is so hard. Try to be good to yourself. Maybe some relaxing music, some meditation might work too. Thinking positive helps. Write yourself some affirmation notes too. That really helps. The more that you read them, the more it sinks into your head.

Keep trying and keep posting.

Best wishes for you.

Hi Bella,

You've already had great advice here, but I want to second the idea of counseling and a consultation with your doctor about medications. You don't deserve to suffer like this. Please reach out for help. Things can and will get better for you if you get some assistance with your problems. Please let us know what kinds of things are upsetting you right can really help to talk it out.
