What Do I Need to Do about My Depression?

I think I might need help. For as long as I can remember I’ve always been depressed. I just shrugged it off as boredom till I got into highschool and I decided to actually accept it as depression. I don’t know why I’m depressed. Maybe I don’t even have a reason but it’s just how I feel. I’ve attempted suicide a couple times before but I just couldn’t do it. All I ever think...

I Changed Who I Was as a Person to Eliminate Depression and This Led to Unexpected Changes in My Life

The problem with this recent change in personal identity is that I now have a hard time focusing on and completing my school work both in class and outside of class.

In the art class I’m taking (I’m a Technical Communication Major by the way), our teacher...

During the past three years (noticed it more recently) I’ve been irritable, feeling high...

In the first six grades, I was ill a lot and didn’t become very social, though I’ve always had a few friends. In school,...
