Of course, I’m always happy to help!
Life’s a bit of a roller coaster, so it might get bumpy again as time progresses, but just remember how you’re feeling now and use it to remind yourself that you’re gonna get through things just fine.
I’m proud of you, Anon, you’re doin good. =)

That’s called severe depression, and it’s been a very large part of my life, so I can honestly say I’m sorry that you have to go through it. But don’t let it beat you.
I would suggest getting some help, though. I’ve been seeing a therapist recently, and it helps a lot.I still experience depression, and I still have periods where I feel hopeless, but they’re slowly but surely getting pushed farther apart, and the high points are getting higher.
To explain how bad it had gotten, I cannot remember a single time in the past three years I’ve had a streak of feeling alright as long as this one, and it’s only been three days. Last night I went out and hung out with friends at a bar and then I went to a party, and even while feeling awkward and out of place, I didn’t feel unwanted. I was there, and I was allowed to exist, and that was good enough. Most would consider that a neutral interaction, but I had a fucking BLAST. Being neutral in that situation was the best thing I’ve experienced in a long while, and I’m actually kind of tempted to do it again (after I’ve had some time to cool off - I’m only social in short bursts over long periods of time).
And I’m not on any prescriptions, I’m not on any active treatment plans, I’m not on anything at all. I just meet with my therapist for an hour once a week and talk to them, and they help me analyze, understand, and better cope with what’s happening in my head. It makes a worldof difference, it really does.
Whether your severe depression is temporary or a chronic condition, seeking help is the best option to fight it. Your brain will likely do the same thing mine did and tell you that you don’t know if it’ll help, and you’ll start doubting whether you should do it at all. Then you might end up doing the same thing I did and wait several years to do so, which only made things worse for me. Don’t listen to it - fight back.
