Hey every1.  THis is my first time on.
My problem is that i dont have one..and am still depressed.
Ive been depressed since my early teen..and as teens are..just thought it was a phase.  Alough i went to therapy and was on anti depresants.
At the moment im a manager with a pretty layed back schedule.  I know my friends and family love me,But u dont consider these things when u sit and cry in your room and cry for hours on end for reasons that really are not clear to even how can u tell some one else!
Eventually when uve sorta slapped ur self about a bit and said "come on jude..ur being a bit silly" (just like ur mummy does when ur a kid) u get a glass of water...due to dehydration from crying, apply some consealer and foundation and walk out into the world again to face another day as the happy, bubbley person that every1 thinks u are. 
Im the agony aunt.  Any of my friends or family have problems they come stright to me...i dont mind this because i like to feel needed. but just like some1 2 listen to me( with out me have to pay out £60 per hour)and all my silly wee problems that mean the most to me.
REading everyone elses then makes me feel really selfish.  And that my problems are silly compared to every1 elses.
I think that when things are going to well, that theres going to be an avalanche around the corner, so i cant enjoy what i have.
So even when things are goin well, im still depressed.  So obviously, when things go bad, it will be is this as good as it gets... i hope not. It seems that because i have felt this way for so long that there is no other way to feel, and wat will stop me from feeling this way...if there is anything???

Judi,  There are many different causes for depression trauma being one, bad childhood, extreme stress, loss of love ones are just to name a few.  Sometimes there is nothing visible to relate the depression back to so, when some of these things are not a factor the only other thing to point to is chemical imbalance.  It is proven that depression is genetic and can be handed down through our parents and grandparents in some cases.  Personally I don't believe that counseling in these type of situations are going to be beneficial.  There isn't anything that counseling is going to help with a chemical imbalance other than teaching coping skills for future problems and learning how to recognize the warning signs of depression. 

You stated that you were on medication....are you not now?  I would suggest finding a good psychiatrist who you can talk to and would see once a month or so for medication and follow up needs.  If they then feel that you would require counseling or would benefit from it then you can decide if you want to throw your money in that direction.  Your primary care physician can help in finding a psychiatrist.  Take care
