Hi, I am new to this. I have suffered with depression almost my whole life. The last spell I had I was 15 years old. Now at 26 I have been going through it again. I had depression but not as bad as before. I just don't understand why now. Why can't I overcome this illness? It haunts me all the time. I also been diagnosed when I was younger with borderline personality disorder. THey just told me this recently. Now, I am stuck in this depression with sucidal ideation. I feel so alone, I know there are people out there, what can I do to help myself? I been taking my medicaitons, but it seems like it sin't working anymore. I have an appointment with my psychiatrist on monday, but its hard everyday gets harder and harder. I am in school going for my RN, we just started to talk about depression and mental illness. It gets harder and harder each time that we discuss this stuff. It brings back those memories. I am better then what I was earlier this year, but not back to what i was before this. Any suggestions or confirmations????

Hi Struggling,

Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I think that seeing your psychiatrist is the best thing. Let them know exactly what is going on. You probably need a medication adjustment. Or maybe some counseling. That always helps us along. Having somebody that you can talk openly to. I really do hope that you feel better soon. Please continue to post and keep us up to date as to what is going on. Kudos for you for going to college. That is a huge accomplishment on your part. Studying the depression might bring back memories, but maybe you could use this to help you. You have a first hand look at everything. And it can also help you resolve things. Use this to your advantage if you can.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for the input, it helps. I can't wait until I see my psyciatrist on monday. I am hoping that things will change. This weekend has been better. My finance and I had a huge fight on friday. He says I am always moping around or sleeping and that I mise well be dead. That hurt. I told him so. We talked and cried, something that we haven't done in awhile. I think that we lost touch for awhile nad now things are better, but I still feel depressed. Sometimes I put on a mask just to hide how I feel, then I feel so fake. I just don't know what to do anymore.
