Losing Hope - May 5th 2010, 12:23 PM

I have been fighting with depression pretty much all of my life. I am honestly not trying to be dramatic here but I just don't see the point to keep going. Every step forward is two step backwards and it feels like every time I think I am getting better I just fall down harder. I have told myself for years what was the point of me suffering for so long to just give up now? Except, every day it gets harder to wake up, to go to work, to pretend to be normal and content. I don't know how much more I can handle, its just too much now. I don't know why I posted this, and I really don't expect much of a response, which is fine...

Hey there Caroline,

I am sorry to hear that you have been struggling with depression for your whole life. It is understandable that you may be struggling with hope right now, but it's good that you can recognise that you have been fighting. It is very good that you're fighting against this and it'd be a shame to give up all of your hard work now, wouldn't it? You can't deny that you have been fighting very hard and it seems to have made you a very strong person - you should identify how strong you are, Caroline. You should be proud of yourself. I am proud of you for fighting.

I can understand that struggling must be very difficult and I would recommend that you do reach out for as much support as you can, whether it is from, family, friends or a medical professional. You do not have to do this alone and there is a lot of help available for those who are suffering with depression. Have you tried talking therapies or medication? They may be an idea and can be very beneficial.

You can get through this, Caroline. It is worth it.
Believe in yourself.
