      Yes but I never knew that my feelings were valid until high school. I always thought it was all in my head

      TW…..yeah i can trace it back to when i was being abused at age five but me being five i obviously wasn’t aware of much i just remember one long night in the dark with screaming and pain and me repeating over and over again in my head that i wanted to die and that never stopped i just thought i wouldn’t have to struggle or fight back against the “monsters” if i was dead cause that’s how they wanted me anyway but me being five i had no idea what that was i just learned to live with the very low moods and suicidal thoughts.

      Don t think about that anymore, just go to a church, don t tell anyone about your issues, maybe you can talk with the pastor. You may find some sincere people there but don t talk about yourself. I am 56 I wish We will live somewhere closer I bet we have a lot in common.

      I have been dealing with depression since age 8 (that I can remember) I never got professional diagnosis since my parents refused to take us to the Dr, especially a mental health one. I still struggle super hard to this day, and I've been on meds since 18. All you can do is keep pushing through for the ones who love you. Stay strong

        @weirdestpotato I agree with your u. I have been so suicidal that I had a plan of how I was going to do it, but I have so many people counting on me, I just push through one day at a time

      The first time I was sent to a psychiatrist I was 6 so yes. I still need meds every day and I still struggle

      At 19 when I lost my Mom to a DUI and again at 30 when my Dad died from heart disease. 8 months later my grandmother died also from a heart attack. No warning with any of them!! My grandmother was the last closest relative I had other than my husband and 2 daughters. I’m not ashamed to admit I had to go on an antidepressant and anxiety medication after my Dad died. I’m now 55, …and still need these meds to help me!!
