I have had depression since I was a kid,I'm now 30, i keep having bouts of depression every few months I also have anxiety and am on several medications and have tried everything to stop the depression, my shrink said its recurrent major depressive disorder and it might be something I will always have and thats why i need a good support system and so on and so forth, well heres my problem: why am I gonna keep fighting to live when this is just going to happen again again again! im single i live on my own I have noone to lean on, just my dog. how am i susposed to drag myself out of darkness just to fall right back in, i mean whats the point? I can't do this forever as it is i have had enough and really can't take much more! i have been again sleeping all the time,, i just can't do it....

Hi myst6,

Welcome to the depression forum. I am glad that you have joined us. I think that most of us have felt the way that you feel at one point or another. But once you find the right medication for you, you will be feeling much better. It takes a long time sometimes to find the right combination to fit you. I am going to have depression all my life too. I will have to take medications forever. I finally found the right mix though and added a mood stabilizer and I have felt better for a long time. So just don't give up. We can be your support system. There are many supportive members here.

I had to edit your post as we aren't allowed to discuss self harm. You will get through this. We will try to help you.

Take care myst6.

Hugs, Karen

I understand your desperation. Yes you may have periods of depression throughout your life...(like me and so many others). But there will be periods of joy, too. I'm alone, too. Just me and my dog and cat. Our animals need us!

I'm a newcomer here, too, but welcome to the board. I'm also alone and trying to find reasons to keep going. It's hard and it sucks, but we can get through it. I've got a ton of problems right now, health and pretty much everything else, so it's a struggle to find anything positive. My cat has definitely helped me remember that I'm needed, and at least here we know there are people who understand.

Hang in there
