I have been depressed on and off for qbout 13 years

Posted , 4 users are following.

But just in the last 2 or 3 it happens every 3 months or so. I am so fed up with it and tried a number of Antidepressants over the years. I am fegettingo the end of The line and don't feel I can go on like this. I have hit a brick wall and feel I cannot go on like this much longer. I wonder if over the years I have just damaged my brain with all the different meds. I feel desperate and yet have a wonderful family.

    I have been on quite a few anti depressants over the years I had depression.  I don't feel they have damaged my brain even though I had some bad side effects with some of them. 

    I think we do find the strength to battle on, however hard it is.  I have been to hell and back, but I still think I should fight on, even though I am old now.  I will not let depression win.  You think you have hit a brick wall, which, of course, does happen, but things can get better, please believe me. 

    You have the support of a wonderful family, so it is well worth fighting this illness.

      Thank you anne that's very kind of you. I keep trying to fight on and have got the mental health team involved but am petrified of yet again trying new meds. I ended up really bad last time and thought I wanted to kill myself. I gave so much good in my life but can't see through thus black cloud. Thank you for listening.
