I have severe depression

My first stay in a Ward I was so depressed. I felt things change in my mid teens. People started asking me why I was sad depressed. I wish it was that easy to just Cheer up . How do you feel better


I dont know what feels better sometimes but just accepting depression…

Thats a place to start.

I don’t feel any improvement with Lexapro. Only thing is is I don’t see my pdoc til mar 3rd. I’m going to keep taking it. I’ll leave my caseworker a message… amitriptyline goes with my perphenazine I didn’t like em together. Sorry for long post.

That’s not unusual. I have treatment-resistant (refractory) depression, and have tried most antidepressants with little or no benefit.

Long post? It was only three lines.

It depends, if your depression if from circumstances…or if it comes from your mind.

I’ve been in hospital twice because of depression, in both cases with unhinged feelings of guilt. Best wishes for your recovery.
