Is this what depression feels like?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi I don't know if anyone can help but I don't normally comment on here but today I have hit the low of all lows. I have been in tears for 4 days on and off. I can't shake off this fear of dread that washes over me. I comment on the ptsd forum but wondered if rape could cause depressive symptoms. How do you even know if you're depressed? Please help not thick just confused!

    Hello Sam. Yes rape can cause every emotion in the book including depression. I would be crying day and night also if that happened to me. What a cruel and evil act of rage toward another human being. My heart goes out to you. If by chance  you need to speak privately you can send private messages on here. I am so glad that you wrote to us. You have a support system here of that I can promise you. Please keep posting we will be right here for you. Diane.

    Hi Sam I am so sorry this has happened to you.  I have also been raped many years ago so if you want to chat privately please do so.

    To do this click on the persons name and another box will come up.  Look for the word 'message' and click on that.  Type your message.  x
