Just another member who's stumbled across this site. I've never been diagnosed, but I've been very depressed since I was 14, going on 6 years almost.I refuse to go to a doctor for any help. I have the best friend in the whole world. She's quite a few years older than me, but we're the best of friends. She's bipolar, and she believes I am too. I was depressed starting when I was 14, something traumatic happened to me almost 2 years ago, and ever since that day I have had severe mood swings, I'll go from talking non stop to ready to kill myself the next second, for absolutely no reason. I've began blacking out and bashing walls, without even being aware I'm doing it. Just really miserable tonight, wishing I was dead.
