Hello, my names Melissa, prefer Mel. I'm 22, and I have had depression since I was 14. It's been an on-off cycle. Well this years depression has hit me harder than any of the years before, and frankly I'm a bit scared that I'm not going to make it through this one. I'm really tired. I'm in College, my major is Social Work. This all started back in March when I began to fail my classes (I'm usually a Straight A student), I ended up dropping out of college for the semester. And got even more depressed, then I took the summer off, I got kicked out of my house and was homeless for a few weeks until a friend took me in, and I live with her now but my depression has only gotten worse. Especially this last month. I went back to school the 3rd but it seems to not made a difference. I ended up in St Mary's Psych Ward for a week. When I finally got out I was so disorientated and out of it that I didn't feel like this was my life anymore. It was hard to adapt back to real life. And on Friday I decided to take a walk, which was a bad idea, cause I made an attempt to kill myself. And at this point I have tried everything to get better. I have been in therapy for the last year, and then the psych ward, and of course on medicine; nothing has fixed me and I'm at my wits end.
