Yes.

I've been meaning to go back to my doctor again after being diagnosed 3 years ago, so that I can give SSRI's and CBT another chance, again. But I've been putting it off forever. I feel as though I'm not worthy of any professional help and my parents have discouraged me from going back.

Yes, I've been diagnosed by a doctor.

I've been thinking of going back to the doctors because I've been extremely low for the past few months, but I pussied out of going the other day.

In the sense that someone close to me suffers from it, yes. But I'm not depressed, and very grateful.

Not clinically but I can look back and think that I've been through stages of it. Usually I'm pretty good although right now it's hard to say.

To clarify, I go through waves of depression. I'll be happy-go-lucky for about 6 months straight and then suddenly the world is a different place. After a couple months, it seems to go away. It's not a seasonal thing either....

My depression use to be much worse in my 19-24 ages. It's not a suicidal thing now....just pure sadness.

I had some dark spots as a kid, but I'm fortunate enough that I've never been diagnosed with depression and pretty positive I don't have it. Plenty of my friends do though, so it is a part of my life nonetheless.

i get waves of it too. but it's more like by the hour. it doesn't matter where i am, any happiness i get lasts under an hour before i start thinking about these things. i would be in a room full of my mates and i start thinking ...'am i the only one that can't concentrate on the TV'.

I've suffered from it, I had pretty bad acne, just felt awful and depressed for about 2 years. Problems sorted now though. No thanks to the NHS (National Health Service in the UK) , but that's a different story haha.

My depressive episodes tend to fluctuate on a daily basis. I tend to be in a dysthymic-like mood when I'm not in a depressive episode, but when I am, it feels like I'm slowly being killed. But what bothers me is why these depressive episodes happen several times a day, but only last for about an hour or so, then I'm back to being dysthymic.

We meet again, like-minded individual.

Yes, been diagnosed by a counsellor at uni, but I started noticing it about 2 years before that. It gets better and worse, it gets erratic sometimes though. Like this bout, it just came over me yesterday morning and hasn't shifted. It kinda cleared up at work earlier, but then it got worse 10 minutes later

Ahhh, man. That's unfortunate. If I were to rate my depression on a 1 to 10 scale, I'd say mine is at 5/10.
