How do you maintain your 'happiness'? 'Happiness' being a sensitive term to a lot of us that we can't relate. But yet all of you are here and so there must be something, anything that is keeping you alive and the down days at bay. What is it that everyone does everyday in order to cope? People go through many psychologists with no solution to the problem. Is there a cure? How does one keep going day after day feeling like this? There are days I feel I just can't take it anymore. Then I see people are in the same situation and if not worse. Talking helps, but I also feel miserable talking about my problems. I feel my depression is keeping me from moving forward and sometimes I feel ashamed I'm wasting my own time when I can be somebody, but I can't. I feel empty inside. I have taken pills, seeked some help, tried new experiences(that failed), did what I could in my own little world to make it through, but I don't know anymore. The huge darkness is just so powerful! Please how do some of you survive depression???
