    Has anyone here suffered from depression? If so, and if you do not mind, can you talk about it if it isnt too personal?

    your local chapter of the canadian mental health resource center is always a good start. they will always point you in the right direction. after your md of course. the cmha can be found online, and each office has own support staff. i'll post link below when i find it.

    i was having problems myself with depression as a result of anxiety disorders, however i got counsleling and was given medicine that helped me, and i overcame it but it was incredibly bad at times before, and at one point i had considered suicide. that is when i got counseling and help, and now i have mostly overcome it. im still getting counselling and will for a while more, and my experiences made me want to talk to others who may have had bad experiences as well.

    Unfortunately I have had it as long as I can remember. However, it became worse when my younger brother died suddenly.
    I'm on medication and probaby will be for the rest of my life.
    My advice is to take it One Day At A Time,because that's all you can do at times. Also remember you are never alone.
    Feel free to PM anytime.

    Please if you suffer from mental health issues please, please, please get the help you need. It is there and it is nessassary for some people to spend their lives in constant therapy for depression. My sister suffered greatly from mental health issues and stopped getting help and as a result did commit suicide.

    yes, i have been fighting depression and type II BiPolar disorder which reared its ugly head as a result of the clinical depression, which was a direct result from deep and profound bereavement and grief. Medication can help, and was a life-saver for me. It allowed me to cope with dealing with my depression and subsequently getting 'better'.
    I was able to come to understand my illness and learn coping mechanisms.
    I am not the same person i was before I became depressed, and I never will be. I had to learn to be 'okay' with that, and learn to love the 'new me'. Lord knows I desperately searched for the 'old me'.

    Thank god for the wonderful social workers who helped me along the way, and of course the psychiatrist who managed my meds. I believe that 'support networks' are crucial.

    geez.... I sound like I'm making an Emmy acceptance speech!!!!.... "i'd like to thank the wonderful...." lol

    I have also suffered depression on and off over the years. I have been on medication in the past but thankfully I don't need it at the moment.

    I make no secret of the fact and I am always willing to discuss it with anyone if it will help in any way. You are always welcome to PM me if you need someone to talk to.

    (((HUGS))) to you.

    I went through my first bout of depression at 13 years old. Then I had another episode when I was 15 years old that caused me to drop out of high school. I went to see a pschyatrist (sp?) once during that time who told me all I needed was to get out and make friends and have a boyfriend. Yeah,okay. Then it didn't bother me majorly again until after I had my son last year and then I had severe PPD. Ended up on Zoloft for that which helped a lot for the depression. But I also have severe anxiety issues....going out in public by myself is almost impossible for me. I will literally do anything to avoid public situations if I am alone. So I am supposed to be starting a new medication that works better for anxiety and depression; Paxal I think it's called. Just have to wait until I have this baby 'cause I can't take it while pregnant.
