Hey,
I've been diagnosed with Major/Severe depression. I'll admit that sometimes I feel like I have two different personalities. In face I know many people with depression have this feeling. I have this front this psuedo personality that everyone sees: this happy girl who isn't so lame with life. Then when I'm not in public I put that front down and the real me comes out: the girl who is sad and can't handle what life has to offer.

I don't think you could ever be "cured", you can be treated but I think with most people who are diagnosed with depression, have the depression episodes off and on throughout the rest of their life, and medication sometiems does have to be induced.

My all time low with my depression was about a year ago, in July I attempted to kill myself by overdosing. It was pretty bad spent most of the morning upchucking, but what made it worse was that my mum just assumed I was pregnant, and that didn't help at all.

If you feel as though you have depression I would really encourage you to talk to your doctor about it.

OH YEAH. MY LIFE TOTALLY SUCKS RIGHT NOW. Hell, the reason Im still alive is because I dont think it can get any worse. Its gotten slightly better lately, though.

I agree. Also, sometimes I feel like I have two different personalities trapped within myself, if that even makes sense. This doesn't include the facade I put on for people in public.

I feel like there's an optimistic and a pessimistic side of me, like having an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. They are constantly bickering and debating about who I really am. The angelic side says that I'm a good person who has made some mistakes in her life, while the demonic one says that I am a horrible person who has no place in this world. It can be extremely confusing, and I'm often not sure which side to believe. Sometimes one shows itself more than the other -- my angelic side on my good days and my demonic on my bad.

Like Emily said, I don't believe depression can be "cured," but it can definitely be managed and you can live a happy, fulfilling life like you were intended to.

I guess you could say I'm at my all-time low right now. I'm struggling with self-harm but am seeing a therapist. I'm getting used to talking about my problems, as opposed to keeping them bottled up inside. So that's all good news. Therapy is definitely helping me. I really encourage you to talk to your doctor more about your depression.

Take care! xx

I don't think you can ever be "cured". You're never gonna be happy forever, you are going to have bad days (or weeks). But always remember it is not permanent.
And my worst time would be my first "episode". I don't even remember it, I've just blocked it all out. All I really remember is feeling so dead inside... And being on auto pilot.
