Today has been pretty bad.  I'm 27 and for at least the last 15 years or so I've felt progressively worse each and every day.  It's to the point now where I feel like I don't have anything going for me.  I've been crying all day and went to a movie just to get out of the house.  I saw "Million Dollar Baby" and it was probably the most depressing movie I've ever seen in my life, so if you don't like sad movies definitely don't see this one.  I feel even worse after seeing the movie and I don't know how to make myself feel a little better so I can get some sleep.  I hate complaining like this but I don't have anyone to talk to about how I'm feeling.

its ok its propably not as really bad as you think. if your deppresed you tend to focus on the sad things or negative feelings and forget the wonderfull feelings and memories. million-dollar-baby is not really a sad movie, i think if you remember well she was always smiling when she saw clint in the end and thats the way she wanted it :)

if your deppresion is sort of stoping you from functioning and living normally think about seeing a doctor to help it's not a big deal don't worry too much just do it !! maybe it will make your life better :)

Sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time right now. I am grateful you made the effort to reach out to us in your time of need. It is very hard for me to do that when I feel like I am in the middle of a storm especially when I feel like I have lost sight of the lighthouse needed to guide me safely through it. Reaching out and asking for some help/support is the first step in I need to let the light penetrate the darkness that is surrounding me. Hang in there, and please don't feel like you are complaining. Each of us needs the strength of others at different times in our lives.

We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
