    not really sure what to say.
    but hopefully there's someone here who can talk to me.
    help me through this.
    i've been suffering from severe depression since i was a kid.
    tried therapy and medication.
    it helps for alittle while but not for long.
    i'm just really close to ending it right now,
    and i guess i just need to know that it gets better.
    im 21 so im not a kid.
    i have tried to deal with this for a long time now.
    and i just don't know if i can do this for the rest of my life.
    i cant do this.
    i wont do this.

    So far I've tried
    Celexa Lexapro Luvox Paxil Prozac Zoloft Wellbutrin Effexor Seroquel Abilify Zyprexa Risperdal Klonopin Ativan Xanax Lithium.
    I've been on sooo many. And been told I suffer from many different things.
    I don't know what to think or do anymore.
    I just know that I can not do THIS anymore. I want the pain and the hurt and the anger to go away.
    I want to feel normal. I want to feel like everyone else.

    I too have been on many meds..I finally ended back on effexor at a real high dose along with geodon for the thoughts..I'm on a total of 7 meds..I think they have found the right combination..I'm still depressed but my mood has changed..I take lamitcal for the mood swings.. Don't give up it takes quite awhile for them to find the right meds that work for you..Stay here and talk to us..
