Hi. I'm new here. I have been dealing with depression for almost 20 years, I'm 31 now. I thought I was doing well and finally getting my life on track a year ago, I was halfway through a college program that will hopefully start me in a new career. But this past year has been awful. There has been a lot of bad things happen in life that's out of my control - major family illnesses, a friend who died in a plane crash, among others. I know all of that would be hard to deal with in the best of circumstances, but it's really sent me on one heck of a major downward spiral. I'm on meds, I've been seeing a therapist, and I'm still going down. I haven't been this bad in almost a decade.
I just don't know what to do. I'm flunking out of my school program (I had been almost a straight A student). No matter what I've tried I just can't seem to get back on the road to improvement. I know I won't get better overnight, but I just can't seem to find those baby steps in the right direction.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks just for listening.
