Hi I am 23 Years Old and i have suffered from depression and anxiety since i was 15 years old. Over the years i have been better and worse, at the moment i am inbetween but i have got better at lifting my mood by doing the things that i enjoy. You have to be true to yourself. Only you know the best course of action to take. Now i can recognise the signs that i am getting worse , and know that if need be i can go to the doctors and they will give me medication to make me feel better. Sometimes i wish i didn't have to and it doesn't help when some ignorant friends say that its all in your head and that you don't need tablets or medication to help. All i can say is that they can never have experienced the pain, anxiety and panic that a person can feel and never truely wanted their life to end. The thing i know i should do is go to the doctors and keep taking my tablets but i don't, i always stop when i feel better or adjust the dose if i feel worse. Heres a tip dont do it! Also i tend to drink alot at the weekends and this makes me feel ten times worse. So anyone out there who feels the same as me don't turn to alcohol as a release as the next day everything feels worse and hopeless.
