Depression has been eating away at me for years

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've been battling depression for almost 2 years and now that are more stressors in my life (my sister and grandmother died) It's like nothing is working and i feel like giving up...

I try to exercise and talk to people but it doesnt really work, it only works for the time being..

Then more health problems are arising in me and its causing me to really stress.

    I'm so sorry about your sister & grandmother. That is traumatic! It doesnt sound like your antidepressant is working. Tell your DR. exactly how you are feeling. Its not easy but you have to hang in there. Many times i wanted to give up, but I just pray & keep going. You are not alone. So many of us know how you feel. DON't give up. You are stronger than you think. Take care of yourself.

    don't let depression beat you, you beat it. show it who's boss, tell it you can't beat me i can beat you! walk, go to yoga/the gym, do mindfulness ANYTHING to make you feel good! most of all don't live with it on your own! tell someone, it doesn't have to be a counsellor or family, a friend, your doctor or whoever you decide. i wish you masses of luck!
