Sometimes It's Just Nice To Talk

Hello, I'm a university student I'm 19, and I've suffered with depression since I was 14.

I've never thought about posting anything online, or searching forums because I thought it was pointless. But after a several weeks straight of feeling low I thought I may as well give it a shot.

I just wanted to ask really, or maybe set invitation out there for anyone who feels it'll help to open up to a stranger, like me, who may understand how your feeling right now. I find that I'm the type to keep things to myself and not discuss my problems with people I know because I always get the reply 'oh you'll be alright', if that's the case then why nearly 6 years later I feel worse?

I'm here if anyone want to talk about depression, it needs to be addressed.

  • Hello, I won't claim to know how you feel or say I understand as everybody's experience of depression is different so what I am facing will be different to what you are going through. I certainly won't tell you it will all be okay as who am I to even say that? All I can say is that what you are going through absolutely sucks and it is not your fault. You are not to blame. I will also say that you have the power to change things (baby steps at a time) providing you get the right support. Happy to chat if that helps
