I was down or depressed for meaby more than 3 months, I guess it was all that I was going trough at the momment and meaby some of the things that where happening. I made a big mistake though, I didn't get help, wich made me struggle more and more and sure I grew from that momment but still It would have helped if I got help.
I think that everybody has had moments like that, when life is just not right, and we are going to fall sad or something. But some of out momments can be so depressing that we need help, or just as simple as not talking to anybody. But yeah, I have been in that place.
We all through periods where we get down and depressed. I try to be a very positive person, but find i get several days or even a week or two of depression when things are just not going well. Life can be hard, its hard not to get depressed at times. I find the best thing to do is give yourself a kick in the butt and get back to doing fun things. Getting active is a great way to move past depression
I was depressed for several months, began cutting, almost committed su!cide but was stopped. I'm glad I was stopped, best thing that ever happened to me. Being alive now, I learnt that there would have been many things I would have missed that I would come to love. I also grew from that experience, it was quite life-changing, although it began in a negative way. I've become much stronger from it.
I definitely have - for months even. But I have never been medically depressed. About a month ago, I felt really depressed for about 2 weeks. But it was strange because nothing had changed in my life, and nothing was really that bad. I just felt REALLY depressed, for pretty much no reason. Haha, straaange! :p But I think we all have our ups and downs, but it always turns out okay in the end. :)
I suffer from dysthymia which is a less intense but longer duration mood disorder than major depression. In my case I was depressed for years but always blamed my feeling down on my circumstances. I was shocked when I was diagnosed with dysthymia but when I looked over the answers to questions I was asked and considered the diagnostic criteria for dysthymia I understood and agreed.
Sometimes people can pull themselves out of a funk but other times they cant just "kick themselves in the butt."
Going on 10 years :) Any particular reason you're asking?
