From the age of 18-20 i got depressed, really depressed. Why do people get depressed? I have no idea where it came from but i was sitting at home, no social life, no school, here and there minor jobs, sleep all day, not paying my medical bills, but no exciting life. I was supposed to spread my wings and fly and get out of the house and live, instead i complained and got depressed... all of a sudden where does it come from? At the age of 17 i was ok, but all of a sudden i stopped everything

Depression hits all of us at one time or another. In some people it passes, or they do something about it that improves their life and thus removes that depression. In others its chronic depression, and they just have to live with it.
I suffer from severe chronic depression, have since I was in high school. It has been a struggle, and it has affected my life in so many not-so-wonderful ways. However, I've learned to manage it with prescriptions and a healthier lifestyle. My life is better, but sometimes the depression just sets in regardless of what my life is like. I'm very much like you in fact, I'm not very social and I detest my college work. Sometimes I just want to sleep all day, but that's all part of the depression. It drains you, physically and emotionally then gets to work gnawing at you until you feel worse and worse.
I'd recommend seeing a professional about it, they will get you the help you need and hopefully you will start to feel better.0

I suffered from depression after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. Knowing all the medicines I'd have to take, the possible surgeries, the pain, the changes to my life I'd have to make, all of it began to wear me down and I couldn't see a way through. Depression is different and comes from different places for different people, but I think generally its an inability to cope with life. Other people can just pick themselves up and go, but you remain stuck and hurting in this endless loop. For some people its like a light switch, something clicks and they crawl out of the hole, but others its much deeper and harder to see the light and to learn to cope. Counseling, talking to family, being around friends, exercise, choosing to force yourself to be an active member in the world around you--they can all help you on your road to recovery.0
