    My depression is a near constant in my life. Sometimes I handle it better than other times, but its always there. The best way I find to deal with it is by talking to someone that I trust. I have been through many therapists and I just can never open up to them. I never tell them enough to get relief. I trust my girlfriends the most. I can talk to them. But my depression is so overwhelming that they just get fed up and leave. And the friends I don't talk to, I just become so withdrawn and don't spend time with them or talk to them at all. My depression is my own self destruction but its out of control sometimes. I don't know how to find balance.

    The problem with talking to friends is that they are not trained to handle the problems you are facing. They get frustrated and leave. That is why it is so important to talk with a trained professional. Try writing a journal and then sharing it with your counselor. That helped me.

    Yes you will open up to a therapist eventually... because if you don't ... you will just dig yourself a deeper hole. And the deeper you go, the darker it gets, and one day you won't be able to see the lifeline dangling in front of you.

    I have been on 3, maybe 2, different meds. The one made me make an attempt and another made me sick physically.
    I do try to keep a journal but I can't explain how I feel even in that. It's not events that I can write down that make me depressed. Its just something inside that makes me feel all my bad feelings, subconsciously.
    I feel worse trying to say events that make me depressed because there aren't very many substantial reasons for me to feel so down. So I feel like I shouldn't be like this. I feel like so many people go through so much more shit than I do and some of those people are happier. I feel bad for feeling down, and it becomes a cycle.
    I am at college, I should talk to the school therapist... but I just don't feel safe talking in full detail. They can't tell anyone unless they feel like they have to, and I feel like if I explain how severe this is they will tell someone.
