I’ve lived 5 years of my life now with depression, but I really don’t know what to tell my friends or family. I found out I had depression when my friend who noticed I was looking constantly upset made me go to the doctors. She died 3 months later from breast cancer. She was the only one who knew, so these last years have been torture. I like a guy who I probably shouldn’t, stress a lot and spend my waking hours doing things people don’t consider cool. I just need someone to talk to because therapists never help!

  1. First of all I’m sorry for your loss. These things are never easy. Sometimes, it helps to talk with your other friends who also knew her. And in terms of your depression, it may be helpful to talk about it. You can talk to anyone you feel comfortable around; someone understanding. Like an aunt or a close friend. And you don’t have to reveal all of your feelings at once if you’re not ready. But it really does help to talk to someone. And if you find that you can’t talk to someone, write it down! Keep a diary or a little notebook of what your feeling whats going on in your life. Its amazing how the thoughts can just leave your mind and stay on the paper. Just don’t leave it inside of you.
    I really hope this helps!

  2. I’m sorry for your loss from 5 yrs ago (it is 5, right?).
    There needs to be more kind people in the world who understand depression. And hey, I help others ’cause I don’t want to see them suffer. I wear my brightest smile on my face…in the inside, I have self-diagnosed depression and maybe anxiety. I also know 2 people who know what I’m going through and are always there for me when I need to talk. Glad I met them.

    Wilted Dragonfly (you), if you ever need to talk I’m here. I will check on this page often and whatever it is that you need to let out tell me:) However it’s uncomfortable, I know how it feels to tell someone.
