Addicted to Depression - March 28th 2014, 01:40 AM

For the past year or more, I have had intense anxiety and depression. I've tried all sorts of medication and been in therapy and tried to get better.
For a while now, I've been doing better, for the most part. But...and I don't know how to explain this...I can't let my depression go. If I've been feeling happy, I go and listen to sad songs. And that makes me depressed. I don't want to be depressed but I can't seem to let it go.
I've heard that depression can become a sort of identity sometimes, like if you've been depressed for a while, you think of yourself as depressed. Maybe that's it...
It's just hard. I mean, it's one thing being depressed but always trying to get better. It's another thing when you're better and trying to get depressed.
Just...what should I do?

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other Plans.
