    Everyone has good days and bad daysright? So what do you do when the good days stop coming how long can you push yourself on the hope they come back before you lose hope. I've lost hope and everything in my body tells me to go to sleep but i'm not ready to go yet but i also don't want to keep struggeling anymore. I don't know how long i can go before i give up.

    Help!?

    So I tried going to counseling. At first, it really seemed to be helping. By the end though, she seemed to be rushing me, not caring or hearing me, and just really annoyed. I don't know if it was something I said or what. But it made things so much worse. Every time I start to feel like I might be able to trust a person, they always show me I can't.

    So I just got out of the hospital 3 days ago and it has been actual hell. I was in there for a week and I thought I was getting better, but when I came out of there I wasn't ready for the real world. My ex is confusing the shit out of me and everyone thinks i'm fine. They want me to be better, but I just can't. My ex is dating someone but she doesnt know if she wants to be with him. She said she...

    I just joined the site today. I am in search of support from others who may be going through what I am. I suffer from depression and its been extremely hard for me. I don't like the idea of modern medication so I stopped going to see the psychatrist. I felt like I was just wasting her time by her prescribing me meds that I wasnt going to take. I also feel like I should stop counseling or try my...

    I've always had a level of deprsssion since I was young but lately with our two dogs having to be put down before Christmas and some medical issues I'm just feeling lonely and the things I used to enjoy mean little to me. But it makes me feel very uncomfortable. When I was young being depressed wasn't allowed because it was in competition with my mother's depression and all these years later it...
