    I voted 'more than 6 months - 2 years', but as far as I know, I've been feeling like this for like.. I don't know, since I was 11-12 or so.. (I'm 18 now..) I've been depressed for longer, but only realized how I was feeling about 8 months ago? Blah, beats me..:dry:

    this episode 6 months and still ticking. had 3 previous suicidal episodes in my past which lasted 2 months, 3 months, 1 year 7 months. if life is a stage and everyone is to play his/her part, my part would be a suicidal death cos it comes back and will keep coming back even if i pull throught this time.

    I can remember wanting to 'die' when I was 4. Well, I'm not sure I had a fully comprehensive understanding of death at that age, but I remember I didn't want to wake up, ever. And I think it goes back earlier than that. It's been constant through the years. So...10+ years.

    I don't know because no one ever cared about me or notcied as a kid, but it feels like a long time. I think once I know about the actual illness "depression" I had a good idea that that was my problem which was about 5 years ago.

    I really don't know? I remember when I was never deppressed at all. So I guess it's only been a short time..... but Idk enough about it to vote. I wish depression did not exist. Sure people can feel unhappy for different reasons.... that happens to most everyone. But depression seems a constant feeling of unhappiness that doesn't go away on it's own. That's highly unfair to anyone having to go through it. :sad:

    I've been depressed for as long as I can remember. I don't understand it when people say it comes and goes or something like that. I can't remebmer a time when I wasn't depressed...

    Just over 10 years. On and off, mostly on.

    but it does feel like forever, when I think of me as a child it doesn't seem real, not real I was ever unconditionally happy

    Somehow I feel there's been something wrong with me my whole life, but about 4 years ago when I went to college at 16 was when it came down on me like a ton of bricks. Been in my own isolated world since then and I fear if it stays like this i'll never recover. Every day brings more damage.
