Hi guys.
Iíve been dealing with depression since I was about 14/15, and Iím now 28 yrs old. Itís been so long that I guess itís almost a part of me, kind of like an arm or a leg.
I still have faith that thereís a brighter future and Iím willing to try anything to get myself there. Iíve tried a lot of tactics over the years with little joy, I hope by opening up to people who can relate to me I might finally start edging towards happiness.
Somethings gotta change folks, I canít live the rest of my life feeling like a horrendous failure to myself and to the people who have enough patience to still be around me.
Itís all or nothing now, this isnít a life worth living.
Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading

Hi and welcome to the group.
Have you spoken to your GP about how you are feeling? Have you tried meds? Therapy?

Hi Chris, welcome to DWD as Suzi say's have you been to seen your doctor have you had any form of treatment (meds/therapy)?

Hi, I'm the same as you, suffering from depression since I was a teen, now 31, I joined here last week and have already found it to be very helpful, everybody is warm, welcoming and encouraging, I hope you find it as helpful as I have

Didn’t expect such prompt replies, already feeling the love :)

Yes I have been to the docs, I’m on mirtazapine and I’ve been through family counselling as a teen and CBT more recently. It has given me a few more tools to cope with depression like distraction techniques but it hasn’t solved the problem. It feels like I’m fighting the tide
