Advice for someone with severe depression and going through a break up?

So I'm 20 and I've been diagnosed with depression since I was 14 by a doctor. Over the years it has gotten progressively worse and worse. I've been tested and evaluated by a few doctors and I'm on a mental health care plan with a psychologist through my doctor. I also take anti-depressants. I've tried suicide prevention helplines, tried socializing, many sources of support and none of it works. It doesn't help that on top of that I have a serious lack of emotional support from my family and have given up opening up to them. I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years after a complicated and toxic relationship. I've shut down a lot of my social media as well. I've given up on the world and struggle to want to communicate with anyone anymore. I feel like nothing is helping me at all.

    • You can not expect to be in a relationship with anyone unless you are happy with yourself first remember that... always...

  • 24 atm , "enjoying" depression since cca 13 ... get a cat or some other pet, have a walk in nature... listen to music , something that mirrors how you feel wheter it sadness, anger or whatever , do sports/go to the gym, maybe try reading something...
