Hey guys I'm new here and have never spoken to anyone else who live with depression, so i'm a little bit apprehensive.
I'm 23 and have suffered with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I go through phases of feeling okay, then happy and then it takes one small thing to get me feeling like this again. I feel like I have no one to speak to about it, if I try to talk to anyone they just highlight good points in my life and tell me to look on the bright side. So after trying to talk to people and getting those responses I now try and deal with all my problems inwardly.
I have been on Trazadone in the past but I felt like it made me worse and has put me off trying anything else. It's getting to the point where I just don't want to get out of bed and I have university and work to go to and responsibilities but I feel like I've come to the end of my tether, because i'm doing so much something has to give but also I need to go to work to be able to provide for myself and university is important to me because I feel like I'll be happier in the future.
Any help would be fantastic!
