QHow do I overcome this chronic depression?

Hello, my name is Andrew. I am a 16 year old student from high school and I am completely useless at this point. I have been suffering from depression for a long time. Honestly, I can not really remember when it started. All I know is that he became clinically depressed 1 year and 3 months of a break with my girlfriend. We were very close, and as my home life sucked and I needed love, for starters, when she was only left me completely earth shattering for me. I did not know what to do with myself. I got really bad in school and did not want to do anything ever. Every f * cking days I was miserable. It had all the symptoms of major depression all I could think. And wasn t for months until I started to see a psychologist. I found that the therapy did not help at all, but refused medication for a long time. Finally starting this school year I tried medication, I was on a low dose for 5 weeks and my parents had trouble getting dates, so I was not seeing my therapist very often. On the anniversary of my rest until I had my first panic attack. But I realized I was on the same day of the break with the previous year until a few days later. I had been manic yesterday for the first time and I did not understand at first why I was so tall and good that I do not like, they just want to blow their brains out that night. The next day I woke up I felt weird and then spent the panic attack. I still think about the girl every day if I want to or not, but I think my problem is not getting over it. The thing is that I am not bed ridden as it used to be, but still I have a chronic deppression every day. And although it can not hurt me as bad as I did, I feel even more desperate, as I stood only won away. I see a therapist because I can not take any medication (not helped by the way) My parents sure are not paying more and this is the situation I find myself in. I try to keep a positive attitude, read, try relax, play my guitar, but I still feel bad almost every day and I just want it to end. There are still some days when I'm just a complete disaster, but arent as much, but the amount remains the same. I have had many thoughts of suicide I'm f'ing tired of it. My dad is the one that is totally foreign to him dliving is a nightmare every day, but needy though my mom is loving and caring, she's the beings and deppressed Me Down. I'm in a hole and I stayed. I have read that thats less intense depression can last four years chrinic! I'm not waiting that long. I dont even know if I'm still mostly depressed or not. This is making me very angry and I f'ing tired of it. Nothign help, and I have no support. Please help!

Some who daily experience deep chronic depression may require both prescribed medication along with "Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT ') provided based on awareness of cognitive therapists, and there are some who experience chronic depression, but not Chronic deeply that work well with MBCT alone.

andrew honestly, therapy and pills do not work. or at least i dont I believe in them. the only person who can help yourself. I've been struggling with depression and anxiety for four months, but anxiety for 2 years. panic attacks and sent his talk about anxiety that's my friend. in fact, I had an anxiety attack last night, and I cut the car in about 11 different places, such as I have been falling since the anxiety started. My main objective is to help me to know I can improve, knowing I am a person strong enough to overcome everything. I think about suicide more than you want, but I know I never do it because I want to show all the people who want to kill themselves, or people in heaven or hell that must rescue It is possible, and can not be waived. to be monitored closely with all your friends, the last thing you need for them to do is give you up, and they lose. this does not mean
you have to open up to them and talk to them about their depression, Only you and your friends still worried yet. at school, I gave up. but I realized that school is school and you have to do no matter what. So I grew some balls and
began to pay attention and do my job again, and trust me feels much better when you accomplish something and get a 92% on an exam, instead of being like "Oh, well, I do not care what they gave me a 64% "that makes you feel bad and try less. You can not spend your days moping around hating life. you have to work at it every day to improve, this will not just come to you. talk to people who have been through what your going however, people who have recovered, and you'll understand that hope is real, rescue is possible. My last thing to say is the quote that keeps me holding in the event you live. "Everything is okay in the end, if not well that's not the end." -Unknown. this may agree to anything. if you're in the dentist's office, and get your teeth drilled, not good, is likely to hurt. but not the end, and when the final
All will be well. when you go through a bad time up, is not acceptable. but in the end, will be fine, and once your well the USDA Agricultural Research final. "And every ending is a new beginning." the only thing left for me is to think of others suffering more problems people like me and you. People suffering from the death of friends and family, or drug and alcohol addiction, just think people who complain have poorer and less. "Every passing minute is a minute saddest Happiness never return. "
you only live once andrew, so turn off the computer, go clean your room, call a friend and talk by anything on the phone, go help your mom with anything you need, go out, do something. andrew life is broken, and the only person able to fix it by yourself.

I won't lie to you I've been battling chronic depression for over 40 years, but it can get better but you have to take things into your own hands. I don't know where you live but in NYS you can get psychiatric services on your own at the age of 13. You need to find out what the age is in your state and than if you're old enough go for it. Also talk to your doctor they will be able to help you. The thing that's helped me the most has been medicine and talk therapy with a really good therapist. I've had a variety of therapist over the years but I've also had some really great times and I have three great daughter's. I'm not saying that there haven't been hard times but most of my life is good. You have to get really good help and you have to learn to advocate for yourself.

Find a new hobby . Maybe something related to sports , music , literature , computers , etc. Just something to grab their attention and break , guess what , yourself. You have good friends ? Spend more time with them . Ask someone who can talk about their feelings . You will do well . Do you believe in God ? I do. You know what? There is more to life . It's not all about you . Have you considered that this

I 'll give my advice depression . I have bipolar disorder is very serious , and have not been able to find medicines to help me, and yet I have a good life because I really do take my own advice . I still suffer hellish symptoms 'm disabled , but I have a wonderful husband and a home in the country I love , and life is still worth living . When you get a chance , try the drug again - most people have to try many different medications before finding one that helps them , but most people find something eventually if they keep trying . Genetics of people just vary widely , and there is no evidence to know what drugs to treat , so the psychiatrist just go through them . Try a bit of free advice available at It will teach CBT , cognitive behavioral therapy , and is a computer program at the National University of Australia . I've done lesson 1 , and parts of it were pretty funny , but really is education , too. ***** If depression is worse in winter , try to get more sun . You may have seasonal affective disorder ( SAD ) or depression could be partly seasonal . Use a light box (10,000 Lux ( light intensity ) at about 20 " - about $ 300 online , do not get at a local store , they will charge more , do not need full spectrum, check that you have a UV filter ) . I have extra windows , spending time in bright rooms , walls painted peach
