    Me personally, it hasn't really gone away for about a year, just days here and there where finding a reason to get outta bed seems kinda possible :mellow:

    This episode has been ongoing for nearly a year and a half. It has taken everything out of me. I'm about to give up.

    A long, long time. Thankfully, the medicine I take keeps it from being too deep most of the time.

    i haven't enjoyed anything in 31 years, and i have personal reasons to believe my depression started way before that.
    when i read about children dying, i think, if only i could trade places with them. they deserve to live to be adults, and i should have died as a child.

    My whole life pretty much. It hit the hardest when I turned 18 and had to figure out a life for myself :heart:

    I don't know.I used to be more functional but was miserable and hid it well.I was diagnosed with depression as a teen ager and was on medication for a while as a teen.But as an adult I was shoved aside....fell right through the cracks.Now I don't want to hide it anymore so I isolate myself...I am definately worse than ever before in my life and hope the new meds work soon because I have symtoms of more than just depression now.20 years of treading water,walking a fine line,and pushing away people....and I recall someone telling me when I was 18..that I would just have to live with the depression.And have a nice life.

    since I was around 12 or 13. There may be times in there where I'll go at most a month where I feel okay but it never truly goes away for me.

    I have episodes that last 24 hours to 3 or 4 days, and then I seem to do something that gradually gets me back into a mode where at least im functional. Im having one of those periods right now, but its proving hard to shake this time round.

    Same here- it kind of all fades into one long bout with a few "maybe okay" days sprinkled in.

    I dont think it ever really goes away, sometimes I'm distracted enough I don't notice it... other times I'm just numb to it... have been numb to it for the last 2 years and its rather unpleasant 'waking' up to it now, as the feelings are all fresh again... so I'm expecting things to get worse before they get better.

    I have felt nothing but various shades of depression for as long as I can remember. No exaggeration --I've had times I was able to get up and go to a job or school, but I have very deep-seated self-esteem issues and have just had so many awful things happen in my life. It's always looming.

    Happiness only lasts a few minutes for me, about once a month...
