Feeling very depressed


Today I just feel very depressed and fed up. I'm tired of trying when it feels like I've tried everything already. I have a therapist currently and I started feeling a little better but of course it didn't last. I used to take Prozac which worked but then it stopped working and ever since I've been searching for a replacement. I struggle to see the point of it all honestly. I don't want to live. I wish I could just die peacefully but I can't, so as long as I wake up each day I just go through the motions. The only thing constant in my life is depression. It never goes away. It has robbed me of everything. I honestly just want to die. I don't see a way out of it anyway. When I was younger I told myself that I wouldn't let myself live past 30, and now I'm not that far off. I don't know what to do.

I've tried self help books, religion, spirituality, CBT, talking to a psychologist, meds and seeing a psychiatrist, what else could I possibly try? I've been dealing with this for so long that I've lost hope.

I guess the only thing I could advise is perseverance...surely I haven't tried everything

Can you try another antidepressant, there are a whole lot of them. The thoughts of wanting to die are part of being depressed. You might could just call your doctor and tell him what's going on and they would prescribe something else. I'm so sorry you're suffering like that. I take a natural antidepressant 5htp. There's that if you having trouble getting with the doctor right now. You can buy it anywhere online. Let me know if I can help.

Thank you, I'm planning on seeing my doctor or psychiatrist again soon. I've never heard of 5htp, what is it?

Good ,your doctor should be able to prescribe something to help. Look up natural antidepressants online , there's also st. John's wort and SAM-e.

I'm in the same boat as you and I don't know what the answer is. Hang in there though. Maybe one day there will be a break through.

I certainly hope so ❤️

I have not been on Prozac for some time now but when I did take it, it did not work for me. I later was on Celexa which at only taking one 10 mg tablet a day worked wonders; It worked for about 2 months and then 1 day it just stopped and I came close to committing suicide. I have come to the conclusion that nothing will ever work. I have spoken to many who have been on antidepressants that different medications can work wonders but many need to be closely monitored. With the risk of an antidepressant just stopping as it did with me then I find them too damn risky. Don't give up! Depression is a fight that tries to defeat us and I have reached the point that I will not let it win.
