Me and Depression


"When I had depression, it was awful; I felt helpless and stuck. I had severe anxiety, and it was so severe that I had lost weight bc of nausea. Although, I did overcome depression and here's how I did it:

I realized that I needed help. I opened up to my mom and dad and I told them how I felt and a sense of what's going on. That helps a lot, opening up to someone about how ur feeling.

After that, I just took things slow and replaced my negative thoughts with positive thoughts and I tried to be as happy as possible. Soon enough, my grades went up, I started to eat again, and I was starting to have a positive outlook every day.

I didn't take any antidepressants and I didn't go to the doctor. Mind u, I was only 14 at the time, a freshman in high school, and this was because most of my childhood best friends had moved away and I was missing them severely, still do. Not to mention, I was getting bullied a lot my freshman year.

I suggest opening up to someone close, taking their advice and letting them help u bc that's how I coped with depression. I hope this helps u

Edit: when I said “After that, I just took things slow and replaced my negative thoughts with positive thoughts and I tried to be as happy as possible.” I was getting out of my depression and that wasn't easy as well. That's why I said I had to talk to my mom and dad, because they helped me get the help I needed. When I had depression NOTHING was positive. I had NO positive thoughts at all. I felt hopeless, helpless, trapped in the darkness. I had to tell someone and I had to get help, so I told my mom and dad, as mentioned, and they helped me. I went to therapy, got help, and started getting over my depression. I started to think positive again, and I hadn't been in a very long time. That's why I said that sentence but I skipped over that whole line. So yes, I believe my depression was severe, so severe that I didn't want to live anymore. I had suicidal thoughts and I couldn't deal with that anymore.

Apologies if that wasn't as clear as I thought it was."
