• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

I've struggled with severe depression for almost 5 years now....I don't know what to do anymore. I take meds, go to therapy, try and engage myself. I cut myself. I don't hang out with my friends. I used to, but I never do anymore, and if by some chance I do, I don't actually do anything. Help?

Can you maybe talk to any of your friends about how you feel? Sometimes sharing your problems with others can help.

that sounds hurtful. sometimes peers are not so good at helping each other with emotional problems if they are not going through the same thing. what about your therapist? is there any understanding there?

If I'm understanding you correctly, you've been in treatment for a long while, but traditional treatments aren't working.

Well, I do have one thought I think is worthwhile. If you still suffer from depression, one effective method of treating it is ECT. Which, by the way, is not that bad. It gets a lot of stigma and most people don't even know how to picture it, but it remains the most effective and fast-acting form of treatment there is, and it's not frightening at all once you're actually there. Sadly, it still gets a lot of stigma, and is wrongly considered a "last resort" treatment. Have you considered that as an option?

it sounds like nobody is really getting you and understanding you. that's a scary place to be.
