I have been suffering from depression for about 20 years and I am new to this group. Today is a really bad day for me and I need talk to people who understand what depression is. Today I even felt suicidal for the very first time. I have thought about it many times before, but I've never actually felt like putting a plan in place to do it. I felt that way today, but I felt better after contacting the suicide hotline

I felt like that too. My own mind told me to jump of a building. It's so depressing . It's hard to function or be around people

It is difficult for me to function as well, and I find it extremely difficult to be around large groups of people. But sometimes I love being around one or two people. Anything over two is difficult How do you usually cope when you are depressed what are some of the things that you do to get through those very difficult days?

If you are still here - there is a purpose for your life. You might need help finding it, but there is a purpose for your life.

I am suffocating right now from a deep depression. I feel as if no one cares about me but my husband. I dont know what to do but would live to hear other people's struggles and talk more of mine. Maybe we can find mutual support somehow. Blessings.

I don't like being around to many people. I'm not very social. My home is where I feel good. I use to be fun and out going. I miss it. Most of the time I want to be alone.
