I have been clinically depressed mostly on than off for the last 7 years. I have struggled with various antidepressants which never seemed to work and waited 2 years to get a psychotherapy appointment, although I am now nearing the end of my allotted 8 weeks (you're only allowed 8 weeks of being crazy apparently!). My family has had enough of me "feeling sorry for myself" and being always down that they dont even bother anymore. I know it must be hard with someone always bringing people down with feeling so negative all the time but its just like they dont believe that I am actually depressed but think that I am cynical and negative and feeling sorry for myself and should take responsibilty. I can see they have a point but sometimes I can barely get out of bed I feel so down. Are they right? Am I jsut now in a point where being sad is more a habit and that I jsut feel sorry for myself?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
