Hi, my name is Nikki and I will be 23 in a few days. I have been suffering from depression for about 10 years. I have been off of my medication for 3 years, and it hasn't been pleasant. The past month or two has been really hard for me. I joined SF to be able to talk about what I am going through, because I don't have anyone to talk to. I try to talk to my boyfriend about it, and he wants to help, but he just doesn't understand.
