    Hi and thanks.
    I’m not sure I’d even say I have depression as I’m not sure how it should feel! I am struggling with a lot of things mainly home life. I’ve never been one to talk about things maybe that’s why I’m here because you guys are all strangers? I’d also say my problems are minor compared with what some are dealing with. I’m in my mid thirties and have a pretty well paid job, I have a gorgeous son who lives with his mum. I don’t really feel I have anyone close enough to me that I can open up to about why I’m feeling the way I am, I’ve tried but all I get is the usual oh Lee your young, good looking and have a good job, what do you have to be fed up about. Or I find even worse is when someone just tells you to cheer up!

    Hi and welcome. Just because someone may be going through worse doesn't mean your problems aren't valid. I wish people would understand that!

    Hi Lee and welcome to DWD. One thing I've learnt is that whatever it is that you are dealing with is important, no matter how big or small you may think it is because it is happening to you..
    Have you thought about going and telling your GP how you are feeling?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Thanks for the welcome
    Nearly ten years ago when my relationship with my sons mother ended and they moved out I went through a very bad time mainly because I missed him that much. I lost my appetite and lost weight, I thought the appetite thing was down to physical illness but he decided to try me on anti depressants. They sat in the drawer for nearly a month because I wasn’t convinced I needed them but finally started taking them. I didn’t take them for long and I knew that they took a few weeks to start taking any effect but I decided to carry on without them. I find it difficult to talk about things, maybe I’m old fashioned in my attitude!

    Lee, I for one know that things have moved on a lot in almost 10 years. Try to go back to your gp. There are a lot of different treatments for depression now, talking therapies, behaviour therapies and of course lots of newer antidepressants. Your gp is your starting point for a lot of these therapies.
    By the way, you will never ever be told to snap out of it here. We all wish it was as easy as that!
