I wish I knew. I found out I was depressed during my late teenage years, but in reality, looking back it started before that. Sometimes things seem to look up only to come down hard l8ter. I agree with Lefty about the news, both paper and television and no longer watch or read either. I see greedy and revolting acks when I look to those sources and can't stand thinking they're all around me. An annoying paradox that seems to drag me down, is this; I have my youth and yet for no reason (or maybe there is IDK) I am kept from enjoying the vast majority of it by feelings I do not understand. I've struggled through a few years of wayward self medication trying to make it go away and only messed my brain up more. I had a bad experience when trying doc prescribed meds so I ran from them into other "meds" and only ended up where I started. Of late I am frustrated because I can't find a job and desperately need one. I guess the answer to this post's question is, I don't know and its really frustrating.
As much as this all sucks, at least we can all relate! At least there are others who know how we all feel.
