I have been affected by depression for as long as I can keep in mind. My earliest childhood remembrances are tainted with the ominous presence of my depression despite growing up in a very adoring home with two kinds and nurturing parents. After a divorce in my early thirties, I found me personally unable to cope with the feelings of feeling down that had permeated my existence and often left myself unable to get out of bed.
Of course, these feelings had intensified consequently because of my divorce, but even some time before I knew that something was not quite right. I actually visited a psycho therapist and my doctor, both of whom asked me when my symptoms started. I actually explained that I was fairly certain they started out the day I was born, which both told me was entirely possible.
Since that time, I actually have tried different types of medications. From SSRI’s to MAO inhibitors, I have tried so many treatments that I sometimes felt like a guinea mouse. I finally discovered a treatment that worked for me and produced very few noted side effects. I am now experiencing good life more than I actually ever have and can honestly say that I feel like I never thought I might or even could.
Enjoying life now is some how bittersweet as I look back again over all the years that I spent in depression without even knowing that it was not normal. I knew something was different simply from observing the behavior of other people and comparing it to myself, but I always considered it to be my personality or “just the way I am”. I want to advice others who experience prolonged bouts of feeling down to get more information about depression. There are several resources available on the internet, and even your primary care physician can be of great assistance in helping you to determine if you suffer from deep depression. He or she could recommend that you speak to a specialist.
Had I actually known that my issue was correctable, I would have spent lots of years enjoying my life rather than wondering why everyone else was enjoying theirs. Depression is treatable, and you too can enjoy a happy, effective life.
