I'm depressed and have been for several years, almost half of my life. I'm wondering if there's any way of getting past that whole "I'm gonna feel shite for the rest of my life" feeling, as though I am pretty sure I'll be apathetic, lethargic, antisocial, suicidal, resentful etc towards other people for the rest of my life. I do have plans and I would rather do shit with what little I have. Moreover, to those who have loved and lost, what are your opinions regarding reltionships including chronic depressives? My experience is discouraging.
