Step 1. Notice the problems that never seem to end.
Step 2. Decide not to reach out even when you need a friend.
Step 3. Hide your pain behind a smile.
Step 4. Wonder if it's all worthwhile.
Step 5. Hope that all of your strength is enough.
Step 6. Forget this all, just never give up.
Feeling so lost.

Ive always been thr strong one in my family. Every burden has been carried by me for the most part as my other family members didnt know how to deal. As Ive gotten older I turn to realize I dont have many friends who actually can help me, or know how to. Im isolating myself and starting to not interact with the people I love. I put on a fake smile and everyone believes it. Ive come to a place now where I am feeling so alone. I dont know where to turn or who to talk to. Everytime I try tell my family they are either too tired or say they'll help and never get around to it. I dont want to bother them so I dont know. Who can I contact myself?
grief, how do we deal with it?

its coming up the 2nd anniversary of the death of my father ive noticed that at this time of year all those memories come flooding back to be of what events took place surrounding his death and don't think i am coping with it well at all

I know how you feel. This August its coming to the 1st year anniversary of my dads passing. I dont talk about it a whole lot, and the memories I supress seem to do the same, flood back as it gets closer. I hope you find what you need, probably finding a helpline or getting a councellor could be a step? Im not sure if you already have but I wish you the best.

All alone in the world makes me feel like I am no longer apart of it. I have tried talking about my problems taking medication nothing works I am more lost than ever trapped in the darkness of my mind with no way out. There has been so many times when I just want 2 give up but something tells me not 2 but I honestly don't know how much longer I can do this. I hope something works soon because I have had enough of feeling this way an being told things by councillors that just don't help me taking meds that make me worse. I reaaly need help but don't no wer else 2 turn.

Starting this site and actually talking about it when you need to will help. You probably don't want to hear this, but give it your all and give it time. You can do it and prove that depression can make you stronger.

Is all this hurt just a phase?
A teenage year haze?
Does everyone know of this pain?
This craziness that resides
Deep down inside
Why must I hide?
My foundation is shaking
My will is breaking
Is this just my awakening?
Could there be a reason?
But it must be treason
To make me feel so un-needed.
If you know of this hurt
Yes it may get worse,
It may feel like a curse
Just know I am here
And I share your fears
So, please, dry your tears.
You'll make it through
And that, friend, is true.
Depression ain't stronger than you.
Keep it up, guys. You can win this.
How do i know whether im depressed or just feeling down a lot?

From experience I know it's quite hard to tell. But, if you are finding that you feel down/sad/angry or any other negative emotion all the time then maybe you should go see someone about it. I didn't think I was depressed until I realised that nothing made me happy anymore and I hadn't laughed in months. But if you are really worried reach out to someone :)
Don't know what to do anymore :(

I have truly hit rock bottom. I used to be the happiest girl alive but now nothing can make me happy. I've been on anti depressants for a few months but they don't help at all. If not they've made things worse. I used to be very social but I sleep all day I've I pretty much screwed up my degree. I feel like an absolute failure in life. All I do is cry all the time about how fat ugly and how much of a loser I've become. :/ don't know what to do anymore please help a girl out :/ xx

I think I went through an episodelast weekend that lasted a few days. BUt today I've been happy most of the day.
Wondering if I need to see a doctor or not. I felt really down before, but felt that I just needed to put the pieces together and then get back on track with everything and now feel a lot better.
Maybe it would be a good idea to monitor how I am over the next few days / weeks and take notes with how I am?
couselling seems expensive too

That's completely normal, everyone gets down every once in a while. The fact that you can pick yourself back up is a good sign :)
iamashamed >> 03/04/2014 1:03pm
To be honest i dont know whether this is a fad or not. I did the test (on this site) and it said that have depression but I really dont know.
