  • Lost someone very close to me and just couldn't find the joy in anything for nearly two years, counselling didn't work and I got given medication, never took it. After a while I just found something new to focus and I left the depression behind me and haven't looked back since.

    • Sorry for your loss

    • Thanks! It's never gonna be easy when someone close to you dies I think I just went in to shut down mode but luckily managed to snap out of it without meds messing with my head and I'm grateful for that!

  • Hate to break it to you, but you don't need a reason to be depressed. Mental illness isn't caused by trauma in many cases.

  • None of the options, mine was down to an eating disorder which started partially because I was a competitive gymnast and partly because I was ignored by my parents while they dealt with my sisters ED! And has been pretty much ever since because I learnt at a young age being thin was all that mattered and I'm not even vaguely, so I loathe my body and thus myself! Pills make it better, but they sure don't help with the weight :(

  • I had depression for years, there wasn't really a reason behind it I would just break down out of nowhere. It has left me deeply affected though, now I rarely experience much of any emotion, i'm massively pessimistic and still generally loathe myself yet i'm at peace with that.

  • Loss of my dad, completely took me to rock bottom for about 12 months, I tried to keep up appearances, but inside I just felt completely numb and had no spark..
    Then one day, it just started to slowly turn around, and I started getting back to my old self

  • I may or may not have chronic depressions and no matter how much I surround myself with people via having many close friends and also having an SO for more than two and a half years already, I somehow still feel depressed and alone sometimes. It may not make sense, but it is what it is

  • I have but there wasn't exactly a reason for it, I think if someone said they were depressed over being bored or having no friends they probably don't understand what depression actually is.

  • That I have hardly any friends so I'm bored and by myself a ton of the time. I hate school and I get so tired of being there when there's nothing I want to do in school. And another reason is I had surgery and had a lot of problems with it. It just wears me down that I can't do what I want to do because of my physical limitation. I can do a lot more now but sometimes I still have issues and it just annoys me like no other.

  • Not exactly no friends, but I had no real friends who actually cared or gave a shit. I still don't to this day after moving from my hometown.

  • I get depressed whenever someone tells me I gonna "win" something and I finally get nothing.
    I get depressed when I don't act the way I wanted, I can handle it pretty well.

  • The most I've ever been depressed was due to lack of a girlfriend. I got over it eventually and now like being single. I've had sex multiple times, but still like remaining single.
