I wanted to start a positive thread here for anyone that has overcome depression or any other type of mental disease. Please post your story if you've successfully kicked your depression Since starting therapy and really working on the root causes of my depression and suicidal thoughts I feel that I have sucessfully kicked my depression after years of dealing with it(since as long as I can remember at least). I am still working through some smaller issues but I feel a million times better! After dealing with this for so long it is kind of strange to no longer have it digging at me but it is better than I imagined. I encourage anyone out there dealing with bad depression to try and seek help. Actively work on trying to get healthier. The first few steps are always the hardest but I wouldnt trade the world for the way I feel right now and it is more than worth it.
