Are you in therapy? Are you on any meds now? Just a few questions before I offer any advice.

Have you considered going to a therapist?  That could help you and if they can’t, they can always refer you to a psychatrist who can prescribe something for you.  Just because you met when because of the depression doesn’t mean you have to continue being depressed for the rest of your life.

My advice: Meds and a therapist

Depression is not something you can kick alone. So many people have depression, yet find treatment and live a happy life. I have some mental issues myself and I know how hard it can be to just want to feel “normal”.  I’m sorry. You are not alone.  Get help..You don’t have to feel like this forever

((Hugs)) I’m bipolar so I completely understand the depression is hard. Unfortunately it’s something that’ll never “go away” and you’re right you learn to live with it even though it sucks. My advice is, if you’re not already going to therapy then go. They can help you work through this and figure out if there’s a specific trigger (like there might hae been last time) if they think it’ll be beneficial they may refer you to a psychiatrist or other doctor who can give you the meds. Also, I suggest finding something you enjoy doing no matter what it is, it could be going to a favorite place or visiting a favorite person. Just find something you enjoy and will allow you to focus on something else. More ((Hugs)) and I hope you can get through this.

I agree. It’s not something you just get over in a day.

Talking to a therapist would definately help. Talking, instead of holding it in, helps.

I hope things get better.

I suggest going to therapy. One of my very close friends just dropped out of doing her teaching degree and has been diagnosed with clinical depression. She said the same thing as you, that the meds that her uni gave her didn’t help her but the therapy is much better. 

Also, I have to commend you on picking up on the signs and wanting to do something about it. That alone speaks volumes about your strength. I can’t say that it’s going to go away entirely because I’ve never had to deal with it, but I think you’re in the best frame of mind to deal with it.

I agree with Spraque: this is not just something you can kick alone, and although it may lessen over time, it could also get worse without help. You should really find therapist who will work with you to find the correct medications and dosages. It is so different for every person. Don’t be afraid to try different doctors until you find the one who works best for you..take control and be determined to get help and get better. Best of luck!
