episodes of depression


Paulxx - Barnet

Barnet - Thu, 10 Nov 2016

I've been experiencing episodes of depression and its truly ruining my life. I've had numerous episodes these past couple of weeks and almost broke my hand punching a cement wall.
I don't know how to control myself and my moods and I go for short periods of time days or even weeks of elated mood then just outta nowhere crashing depression and I feel so lost and confused.
I feel like no one can help me and getting professional help isn't an option for me so I'm just looking for ways to cope and I just wanna know if anyone else has experienced similar things?

Hi Paula. I think you shud try seeing your GP first. He can give you antidepresant pills and if you dont want these he will refer you for counselling. You shouldnt try to deal deal with it on your own.
