    i am 35 yo male from england. i've had serious depression for 7 years. i've been on anti-depressants for maybe 3/4 years, i tried a third one about a month ago but it messed me up so came off it quick. i've tried counselling and psychotherapists some years ago. i am totally out of ideas so maybe if i post here sometime it can help, even if i'm just writing things down. i hardly drink, don't do drugs, i have improved my diet a lot. i don't exercise i know i should but it is so hard to motivate myself

    i live in more or less total isolation (i am self sufficient, but not to this level), have not been out sociallty with people for maybe a year and a half. i am still in contact with my parents who know my situation. i have been suicidal two days ago, and a couple of weeks before that. i think the winter has started to bite hard on my mind. any big change of season seems to fuck me up, because it is like more time has gone by, and i am older, and have done very little in my life.

    i am on disability allowance (the person in charge of me at the job centre has been one of the few rays of lght, she has been great with me). i am long past the stage of gloryfying depression, but sometimes i feel that if you are a sensitive and intelligent person in todays society then there is no way you could avoid depression, unless you're superhuman
