Depression is a confusing subject for those who don't have it. In my experience, you feel worthless and cannot be bothered to live anymore. Depression often gets worse if it isn't treated. Untreated depression can lead to other mental and physical health problems or troubles in other areas of your life. Feelings of depression can also lead to suicide. It makes you look yourself, others and life in a whole new view. Major depression is also known as clinical depression, major depressive illness, major affective disorder and unipolar mood disorder. It involves some combination of the following symptoms: depressed mood (sadness), poor concentration, insomnia, fatigue, appetite disturbances, excessive guilt and thoughts of suicide. (Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms like those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating. But each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioural symptoms. Sadly, for me, i have both. It isn't uncommon for people with depression to think suicidal thoughts (I myself haven't thought of suicide only self-harm) but for other people to think that they would be better off dead. It isn't the answer it's a permeant solution for a temporary problem SUICIDE ISNT THE ANSWER!!!!!!!

Approximately 20 percent of teens experience depression before they reach adulthood, and between 10 to 15 percent suffer from symptoms at any one time.'
I myself suffer from depression and I'm on tablets for it. I've been better now I'm on them but I still have my bad days but that's expected. But before I was antidepressants. It was like this. As on as I woke up I wanted to go back to bed. I sometimes struggled to get dressed and get out of the house some days. And when I When I eventually got up I thought about all the things I need to do, that I needed to do yesterday, and the day before. I lay on the sofa with my cup of tea and thought about all the things that needed to be done, college assignments that need to be finished and sent to my tutor. I stared at the wall stressing myself out but doing nothing about it. As much as I'd loved to be active and get things done at the same time I felt so empty. It was Almost like my brain and body wasn't synced together. But now I'm on antidepressants it's a lot better. So, I'm getting there slowly if any of you suffer from depression or feel like you might have depression or just want to talk. I’m always here
