I've been suffering depression for over a decade but, as with most of us, there's periods of low mood and periods where the mood is not low.

I am currently in the former and have been for 6 months, the most sustained low mood spell I've ever had to endure.

It's not going well, it's not getting better, I've had treatment. I'm not ok.

May I ask if you're on antidepressants?

Not at the minute. Tried them lots over the years but never felt the benefit of them.

I know how you feel. It is terrible when I am in a prolonged depression. I generally make decisions that are not wise, and harmful to me in the long term when in such a state. I don't have any easy answers to it, I fight my own battles with mixed success, and I suppose the answer is different for each person.

Maybe you can try an anti-depressant that is different than the others you have tried. I am on Brintellix and it is somewhat helpful.
