From about two years ago I have been going to counselling. I haven't been told what is wrong with me and I wondered how I would know if I had depression. I get panic attacks and have anxiety but I am always really sad and can't control my crying. I am getting to the point now where I don't think I will ever feel like I did before and that no one or thing will help me. I keep making mistakes and feeling really down about myself all the time. Does anyone know what could be wrong with me and how to feel better?!!

Thanks guys :-)

Have you ever asked your counselor what your diagnosis is? I highly recommend you tell her what you just told us about your moods and crying. It does sound like depression. But don't think you will never feel better again because you will. The depressive thoughts have you convinced that you are going to always feel this way. But you aren't. Keep your chin up. Talk to your counselor. I find a nice brisk walk helps me to feel better. I go to counseling too and am on medications for depression and anxiety.

I hope that you feel better soon. And welcome to the HealingWell Depression Forum. I am glad that you have joined us.
