I have clinical depression, so yes.

It used to be quite often, but I found the right medication, and the right ways to cope. Of course I have bad relapse days, but no one's perfect.

I have major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and mild autism. If I'm not interacting with others, my brain becomes a hellish place rather quickly. Of course, one of my particular symptoms in an inability to deal with human interactions.

I have ptsd, it took me several years to get help. Once I did the VA was surprised I came in on my own will after a few short exams. They asked me how I felt out taking medication, I accepted it. I didn't know if it would help or not but the doctor told me straight up, "If you get it into your head they the meds won't help then they won't". Like most every thing in life it is partially a mental attitude that will help you succeed. To the person who said,"they got medication but they don't take it because you don't believe they will work". This is exactly what I'm talking about, you will never know if they will work or not unless you try them and try to have a positive out look out taking them. I went through a list of different meds before I found ones that work. There are 5 types of antidepressants and I take all five types and some of them don't mix well with each other.

There are other kinds of treatment available if you don't want medication. I chose medication because I can't handle reliving the past while I'm awake. The first step isn't getting help but rather its acknowledging that you need help. Once you figure that out then you start the healing and treatment processes. If you don't think you need help or that it would be pointless then nothing will help you.

I can no longer deal with people in general, sometimes even small groups get to me. There are only a handful of places I truly feel safe, one is my house. So imagine how many times I leave my house a month. I see myself as more of a danger to other people, part of ptsd in soldiers is hyper violence and it only takes a split second. A picture, a smell, a sound or even a single everyday word can be enough for me to explode and its never pretty. My daughter is not only my reason for treatment but the sole reason I am still here today, if not for her then who knows what I would have become.

You have to find the one or two things as not only your reason for treatment but your reason to keep going and if something happens to those reasons then you must find another. Having lived through war I can tell you that life is a precious commodity and any reason to live is better than no reason at all.

Probably the weirdest thing that set off my depression was playing Katawa Shoujo, I was playing it for 2 hours, then decided to take a break, the moment I got off it, I got really depressed (not because I wanted to keep playing ), I guess it's because I hated how my life is at the moment, what type of person I am at the moment and where I am in general, that lasted for about 2 weeks, the thing that...i guess...masked it was playing a lot of mmo's (onigiri, elsword online, tera), I guess it's because I had my mind set on completing quest and trying to level up as fast as possible that pushed that thought away, I still don't like how I am as a person, but the mmo's help

I've been diagnosed with mental problems since eight. How screwy is that, huh? Depression was the first they diagnosed. I've been on meds since then as well. Also have chronic anxiety and borderline personality disorder. And people wonder why I'm not perpetually happy. Like I asked for these stupid predispositions?

I mean, ten years have passed and I still don't understand if it's genetic or developed environmentally. My mom emotionally abused me from about the time the docs began to consider me depressed but her family also has a predisposition to it. as for the mood disorder, I have no idea. I just found out I am bpd, so I'm still trying to figure it out.

My mood fluctuations are so fucking frequent. I hate myself, I love myself. I am violent and thrashing at one moment and peaceful at another. I'm so freaking messed up. And my mom today just totally ruined my christmas, by getting drunk and essentially kicking my ass out of the house when I told her I wanted to leave and go back to my dad's, after i told her earlier, I was not going to stay the night. I hate her so much and feel a sense of dread just being in her presence, when she is drunk I cannot stand her. She's a total abuser. I mean. I just can't. I feel so bad for her, but I hate her enough to not tell her she needs help. Why am I problmeatic she asks, why have I been sent to the mental hospital thrice? Insufferable behavior from her! Not just that, but other bullies as well! I'm so sick of having to deal with the world, man. The special snowflakes on tumblr and Twitter who fake being mentally ill for attention! The family who doesn't support me! The only person I have support from is my father.

I'm depressed right now. I have bad problems with social anxiety and tend to be an outcast. I am introvert, so not being around being people for a few days doesn't bother me though. I am also very socially awkward. Sometimes I like to be around people though, but I don't have much friends in school. A lot of my friends found new ones and kind of abandoned me.

I think it's very funny when people doubt emotional abuse or question it as a kind of abuse at all.
Oh, so it'd be fine if YOUR mother were telling you how worthless you were as a human being every day - from your childhood to your teen years!

Not to mention, people in the past few years have hurt me a lot, so I have trust issues. And because of this my friendships are. Well. Nonexistent.

I have small bouts of it but I can usually just think of something else to get rid of it. However it really hit me hard a few years back, I was seriously depressed for months where I just couldn't see any reason to life and living. I'm not really sure how I got over it I think it was a more gradual thing but I eventually got over it and am now currently pretty happy and enjoying life. Not very helpful or meaningful but thats all I got.

I am extremely shy and couldn't talk to people I don't know very well properly. Hence, I have no social life and have no job. I don't have any real talent that I could share and I'm not that good with whatever I can do or I just mess up what I can barely do. I'm kinda useless, unattractive, and is a loser- a complete burden to my family.

I'm usually depressed when i think about it. I sometimes cry myself to sleep. How I cope with it? Internet and daydreaming.
