Never Ending

Feels like I have struggled with depression my whole life. I feel like I can never catch a break from it. I developed sever anxiety disorder when I was around 17 and I have learned to control it better then my depression most of the time. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one going through this in life, I don't really have any friends and my family is not super close I could go weeks or months without hearing from anyone.

I'm so sorry to hear that. It's not uncommon for people to experience depression early on in life. I've read that even 9 year olds can experience depression (although it manifests differently for them). I've had anxiety for as long as I can remember and when I hit my pre-teen years it developed into depression. There are also so many others like you and I who go through these struggles daily, so don't fear that you're alone. You may be physically alone but we are all here for support and understanding.

You're here now and I'm glad you are, it's a good step towards recovery. I've met good people here and I'm sure you will connect with at least one person here. It's good to have a support group, be it friends, family, or a literal support group. I feel I can relate to you from what you've said so far and I hope to learn more about you. Hope this lifted your spirit some!

I appreciate your kind words, life is a struggle at times for sure. I have my good days and bad days as well but the last year or so has put me in this super depression funk probably the worst it's ever been. There is some kind of relief I get knowing I'm not the only one that feels like this there are many times when I feel like I'm the only one

I know it can be lonely at times, especially when you lack a social life. I befriended two girls a few months ago but prior to that I had no friends for the past two years. And my family doesn't like me so I was completely alone. It does get better though, I promise. Feel free to message me if you ever feel lonely and need someone to talk to. Don't feel like you're bothering me.

Same here if you ever need to chat feel free. I know your pain I could go weeks or months without hearing from my family and I don't have any true friends either
