Am 32, have suffered from depression since about 17 and was diaignosed at about 19.Have been on and off meds the whole time. Stopped on my own when a had the good days (not the best idea) but the bads ones weren't far away. Didn't wanta be taking pills as i thought it would be admiting i was crazy or something.
 
Not too many people know of my condition and i like to keep it that way. Have found in the past i am judge straight away. But have recently broken up with a girl who knew and said she understood, but found out in the end she just used my condition as an excuse to end it.
 
Just wanta be happy and make someone happy but its hard at the moment to see how thats's possible, when you hate the person looking back at you in the mirror.

Hi T0zza,

Welcome to the depression forum. Remember you have to take your meds even if you are feeling good. They need to be leveled out in your system. If you don't take them, then they aren't going to continue to work. You are always going to have a bad day after not taking your meds. It is nothing to be embarrassed of. We all need them here. So you are not the only one... Remember that... None of us want to take them, but we need them to feel okay.

Keep taking your meds daily. No skipping them just because you feel better. I am sorry that the girl broke up with you. Some people can't handle moodiness. And that is what was probably going on with you.

You will meet another girl. Be sure of that. Start working on you. Take your meds like you are suppose to. Maybe get into some counseling, it really helps.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Take care, keep posting...

Hugs, Karen

T0zza,
welcome to the forum and hope you post here often, you will find friends who care.
Sounds like the most immediate need is for you to get back on the meds, see the doctors and find a therapist.
Meds alone do not get rid of depression. AT best, they help 50%, the rest is up to the person and how much they want to get better!
Being so young, you have a double whammy with your horomones goingin up and down. Meds are very serious at your age and communicating with the doc is essiential to your care!
With those of us with depression, happiness is goal, we get it one day a week that is good, then 2 days a week, etc... it takes time, energy and work.
Start with the doc. and find a good therapist, STAY ON THE MEDS, BE HONEST IN THERAPY. IF YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR THERAPIST, GET A NEW ONE. and remember this NEVER,NEVER NEVER GIVER UP, KEEP TRYING.

Continuous use of the right meds is very important to mental health. Once they build up in your system you will feel better.
I take Risperadol for my depression and my whole life changed. I went for Psychotherapy and support groups for depression and learned to change negative thinking into something positive. Today I have used the practices in everyday life. If you can change your way of thinking, you can change your way of life.
