I have recently been diagnosed with "Major Depression" with possible somatic symptoms. I am looking for people who can really understand what it is like to experience this. Perhaps I can also help others through my experiences.

Hi Pickles, welcome to the forum. I'm sure that there will be people here who share a similar situation to yours. :welcome::hug:

What do you see as the differences between a major depression and depression? I think I'm clinically depressed (though I've never seen a specific diagnosis). I've generally understood the categories of depression as mainly relating to the level of severity but am interested to see if there are any more specific differences. What do you think?

Anyway do post away whenever you feel like it and I hope you enjoy the forum - they're a good bunch of people who really do care. :flowers:

Thank you for the warm welcome

Well to be honest I am a bit shy to say alot. That being said I do need to be able to communicate with people who really understand what it is like. So please bear with me as I come to grips with the whole thing. Mine is a severe case. I also have some other irregular medical tests such as an elevated ANA (antinuclear antibodies) and some bright spots on my MRI. Also some blood tests are showing a few oddities also. Everything is so inter woven. I am very confused about it all right now. :unsure:
