Hey everyone,

I've been struggling to find the right words to even express how I feel or what's happening inside my head. I know I've been here before. This feeling isn't new. I can't even bring myself to say it. It was hard enough admitting that I have anxiety, now depression. I kept telling myself it would pass. The random spells of sadness that comes out of the blue, shutting people out, wanting to only be alone. I'm 26 years old. I have my dream job, supportive family and friends, a loving girlfriend of 2 years; pretty much everything that I could dream of is in my reach. But through it all I still feel alone. I've lost my passion for anything and everything that used to excite me.

I'm sorry you're going through this, I understand it all too well. I know it can be hard to reach out for help and so I'm glad you are trying. It can be hard to admit to these feelings but know that it is the first step in overcoming this. Everyone here is understanding, supportive, and here to help! And although we can offer advice and encouragement, it's best to speak to your doctor about what's going on. Or try finding a therapist or counselor. There are people who dedicate years of education (and $$$) to learn how to help people like us. It can be intimidating at first, and some may even feel embarassed or ashamed, but it truly is your best bet. In the mean time try opening up to your loved ones. They may not understand but they might at least help you to cope until you get professional help.
