    I hate life

    I'm so sick and tired of going up and down with emotions I feel depressed and there's no hope and then I think everything is ok. I sometimes think that my meds are not working. I don't know I can't explain any of why I'm feeling low one day and next everything is ok. I feel like I edited out what I wanted to do.

    Hey Em, sorry to hear that you are feeling so bad right now. But try to remember, like you said yourself, sometimes you feel like everything is OK, so you know you'll feel like that again. I can relate to feeling like your making progress with something on some days and then other days feel like setbacks. I don't know what to say to make you feel better but I wanted to say hi and you'll push through this.

    For better or worse, this is perfectly normal with chronic, "unipolar" depression, at least the variety of depression I have. My favorite quote about tolerating some emotional instability in one's life is by Kay Jamison, who had manic depression:

    It is, at the end of the day, the individual moments of restlessness, of bleakness, of strong persuasions and maddened enthusiasms, that inform one's life, change the nature and direction of one's work, and give final meaning and color to one's loves and friendships.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kay_Redfield_Jamison
    Anyway, as I get older, my depression is becoming more stable. In other words, unlike some other diseases, depression tends to gets better, not worse, with time.

    I can relate all to well to how you are feeling TLC. I have been there so many times and wondering whether the meds are actually working. The way I have started to look at it is if I didn't take the medication then I would probably not even have the ok days at all. I think that if I can have a couple ok days now it is better than it was and maybe those ok days will be more and more frequent.

    Now I know that it is hard and upsetting but remember that maybe things will get better and you need to hold on to get through the rough times. We are all here for you when you need us to lean on.

    Take Care

    Also, medication is just one form of treatment. For me, therapy, exercise, self-help, and the passage of time have helped a lot, with therapy and exercise being the most helpful.

    And to think this is what im going to have to deal with for the rest of my life.
    If you are referring to depression, being depressed in one's 20s does not rule out having, for the most part, a happy adulthood in one's 30s and later on. This may be one reason why the suicide rate is lower for people in their 30s than for people in their 20s (other than the fact that people are more impulsive when they are younger).

    That's so true, Daniel. I'm living proof! Yet, I remember very well how desolate I felt when I was suffering, so I understand where TLC is coming from. Just hang in there and keep trying, TLC. There is a light at the end of that tunnel, believe me.
