    Please don't harm yourself. I know first hand how hard it is and painful. I don't remember how long it took to work for me as it was several years ago. What sort of doctor are you seeing, are you being offered any other help apart from drugs?

    I have been told to go to a youth enquiry service (im 22) to get counselling but just dont want to do it, dont see what good its going to do.

    I have been seeing my doc for about a month now and also the doc at work.

    Ive had depression for awhile now but after i cut myself of from friends, they made me see my doc.

    Just really fed up of feeling and thinking like this now

    Hi Sub6

    Trust me you really do not want to kill yourself.

    I attempted suicide some years ago and failed - all I remember when I came round was how lucky I had been to survive.

    I know right now you don't feel lucky and you only have my word for it - but what can ~I say? I made a deliberate and damn good effort to end my life back then but now I am so glad I failed.

    Li9fe hasn't been easy I don't deny that but in between the crap times I have some really good times that make up for the crap.

    Give yourself time before you decide to end it all, once gone you can't come back.

    Withdrawing from people is a common symptom. I did the same, didn't want to go out or bother going on anymore and felt there wasn't any hope. I'm just saying this because I want you to know you to can get through this and feel better. Councelling helps some people and not others but I urge you to give it a try. Did you tell your doc you feel like harming yourself? Some GPs are good and some are useless, i had to change mine just to get any help. Do you drink or use any substances, I just mention this because they can stop medication doing its job and make depression worse. I also recommend looking at the mind website( because they know what they are doing and offer all types of help. best wishes.
