Living with depression everyday is a struggle. You never know what kind of day your going to have. Loosing people cause no one understand and gets frustrated at you. Not having friends. Fighting it on your own cause nothing seems to work. Its a true struggle.

@mcovey246 Hi mcovey246, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I think many of us can relate to this feeling. Let me tag some other members who can share their thoughts with you.

Hi everyone, how are you today? Does depression feel like a constant struggle or a battle you're fighting every day? How do you cope with it in the day-to-day? How and where do you find the strength to keep fighting? 💪

I just know nothing last forever. Good or bad so I hang on white knuckled and teeth clenched just waiting for it to subside.

Hi! Thanks for sharing. Yes, your right. It is a struggle. There are good days and some not so good. But i have learned that I have to make myself get moving. I'm not always successful, but I try not to beat myself up if I sleep a little later than I planned. 

Your with people now who understand. Your not alone. I've mentioned before that for me, some of my depression is biological. So the right meds do help me. I don't care what other people say about meds. It's not for them, its for me. I have also found that I feel better when I get plenty of rest. 

I try not to live in the disease. Like, "I'm depressed. I'm unique." Truth is everyone deals with issues. I try to focus on the solution instead of the problem. Keep sharing.

I battle depression daily. Maybe that's what's wrong. Instead of fighting it, maybe I should listen to it, and try to tackle the root issues causing it. I have tried everything. Yoga, meditation, journaling, exercise, self-care, therapy, meds, teaching out. Everything "they" tell me to try, I've done. It persists. I'm pondering the insecurities contributing to my depression now, and I bought myself a little planner to write 3 things I'm grateful for every day. Top of my list today is I'm grateful to still be alive.

It is an hourly a daily a weekly struggle. Dealing with the root causes and getting professional help is the best way to see the light.

Depression feels like a constant battle for me every single day. I don't know how to cope with it or deal with it. I try to think positive but there's always those bad memories and feelings lurking in the back of my mind and they always find a way out to attack me every day. I feel like I'm losing my battle with depression there are days it's so bad that I just want to die and not be here anymore it's more than I can bear most of the time. I have screaming crying raging fits and then the guilt sets in so heavy on me on how I handle things and how I don't feel normal and wished I did. My depression is tearing my marriage apart. I have seen doctors and psychiatrists and I have taken all different kinds of meds and I have been hospitalized twice in five years in a mental hospital. I need some serious help sometimes I think I need to be hospitalized for a long period of time but then how do I know I will be ok when I am out of the hospital? I need some help 😔

@Mrscaine have you tried EMDR therapy? It really helped my PTSD.
