    Hi my name is David, Im 20 and I live in the Peak District.

    I have suffered in silence with depression since early teens until earlier this year when i finally decided to tell someone, though I wish I hadnt now because it has been a waste of time for me, it has not achieved anything and I just feel even more confused now. I get these highs and lows, one minute I can be happy then next without warning suicidle, to me it seems like some kind of bipolar disorder but without the extreme highs, also to add to the confusion and the main reason why the psychiatrists and other people I have seen have been so useless is that I also suffer with an illness called M.E. which I have had for about 5 years now, they have tried to just blame it on that and its very frustrating trying to get it across to them that it isnt.

    I obviously havnt gone into details now but hope to soon, that is one of the reasons I joined to talk about it more and to try and understand, I have been having a very bad phase since just before christmas that just dosnt seem to be ending and I had even gone back to self harming which I have not done in years, I have not done it for a couple of months again now but its very hard to resist, also I feel very isolated with M.E. so hopefully will be able to make some friends too :smile:

    Hi David, welcome.

    I can completely identify with your mood swings, it could easily describe my own.

    I think it is sometimes difficult to get things across to psychiatrists, which is frustrating. keep trying to resist the self harming, and there's always someone around to talk to here.
    best wishes.
