September last year my depression got to the best stage possible, I was on top of the world but suddenly last Friday I went to visit my father's grave on the first year anniversary and then it all went opposite. My depression is now the worst it's been and the Sunday till Tuesday after I didn't sleep at all because everytime I got in bed I'd think about suicide, now because of staying up it affected my job which I might possibly be sacked for, I'm single, no family and live in a shared house rather than my own place. Can it get any worse

I just lost a parent (mother) a month ago. It never get easy you just have to learn how to cope. Try to keep yourself busy with music or talking to people. People here can relate to you so you definitely are not alone. Have you sought professional help. I had to because I couldn’t function anymore. But now I feel little better I can sleep at night and taking the right meds helped and therapy. Don’t give up. Here if you ever want to vent.

Well said. Things can change quickly, I've seen it in my life. Even when you're staggering around dealing with hit after hit, it can change suddenly. That's why we hang on.

I've learnt that when one says things couldn't get any worse, life has a way of rising up to the challenge and proving us wrong. Yes, it could get worse.

Losing a parent is one of the hardest things, but one year is too soon and anniversaries tend to open up wounds. It does get manageable, I promise, but you have to work on it as well. I mean in the sense of getting help if you need it, talking about it, honoring, those are things that help, just don't go the alcohol-drug route and you'll be fine.

Know that what you are feeling is temporary and it will pass. There will be better days for you.

Listen to uplifting and encouraging music on youtube because music is therapeutic and it helps.
