I was offically diagnoised with depression about 10 months ago. I believe I have been depressed since my early teens. I am now 24 and trying to figure out how to deal with this. I started with talking to a counselor and talk with her every 2 weeks. When I first started out it was twice a week. Then that wasnt working too much, I cried all the time. On my way to work, at work, going bk hm or just when I was around people. I then lost 20 lbs because i didnt want to do anything or feel like eating. Then they said i had anxiety and depression. Ive been put on 3 meds and I don't understand how im suppose to feel if they are working, some days i feel ok and laughing and going out then the next im down and dont want to c anyone. I miss everyone around me, yet they are all there. Ive tried talking to my mom sisters and boyfriend about it and the only one who seems to understand is my boyfriend. Yet all of them dont know how to talk to me or know what to do or act. I just feel all alone in this. But I know everyone is there for me. Please some advice or something!!
