    I came across this forum in an attempt to find answers for myself.

    Abit about me;
    My depression was triggered off at the age of 15 (I am now 20) when i witnessed a tragic death of a family member.I spent most of my childhood being bullied which to this day i believe added to it.
    I was put on medication by the doctors,and after a year and a half on them i took myself off. they seemed to make me worse, and i found my self harming and suicide attempts increased.

    Things improved when i met my partner 2 years ago.Things started to look up even more when i started university september 2007 (i moved 300 miles from home,and my relationship with my parents improved).
    Around christmas time i started to feel worse and worse again, started to feel like i have nothing to work towards. eventhough im in a great relationship with someone who cares for me,i have had a good education which has led to me doing a university degree,i enjoy my course,i have made so many friends there......yet i feel so empty.
    It seems that the smallest of slip ups bring me down.

    I have been home from university for the summer for 6 weeks now, its been hell for me, i feel miserable constantly,im cranky and im taking it out on my partner over the phone every day- now leading to a strain on the relationship- which in due course is making me hate myself even more. once more ive been contemplating self harming.

    I guess im on here to have people to talk to that understand what im going through, to have some release that I dont get when talking to people that i am around everyday

    I hope to hear from you all soon
