I have been suffering from extreme depression since around June this year when I was diagnosed by my GP.
At times I found the struggle almost too much to bear. But now, with the help of medication and self will, I am feeling much more normal again. So I would like to offer this encouragement to those suffering from this terrible and debilitating illness.
Keep working at it and don't give up. Make every moment of enthusiasm count, no matter how small. Use that moment to do something for yourself. It's hard I know and maybe it's easy for me to say now. But I do know how low you feel and like nothing is going to help.
But you have the power within you to make it work.
Do as much as you can to stop from curling up and going to sleep. Find something to focus on, something to divert your mind from those bad thoughts. As you manage each small success, remember it and next time it will be a little easier. If you can, get out and walk, as any exercise is good for you and will help in the battle.
Above all don't give up! It may seem a black as it can be. But it's only like a curtain and if you push a little it will open and you will be on your way to beating it.
I wish you all the best Christmas, especially as depression at this time can seem the worst. Keep fighting and don't give up.
