Hi. I haven't posted on this forum for myself before. I have never battled depression until now. Atleast I think that is what is going on. I have two Chronic illnesses that are dramatically effecting my quality of life. Starting about a month ago, I have noticed a dramatic change in my personality. I cry every day. Sometimes for no reason. I feel like I have to put on a show for everyone and no one really knows who I am or how I feel. I feel lonely and hopeless and sad at the prospect of a life with this pain forever. Is this what depression feels like. Should I wait it out, or go to a Dr. I just don't know what to do or how to handle this. Some days I just feel like my head will explode, I don't know why though-one way to explain part of this is by imagining a deep dark well. I feel like I am at the bottom of it, and there really is no way to get me out... Is this something any of you have experienced? Thanks for your replies
