Hi everybody hope your OK. I have been fighting my depression for as long as I can remember. Need some advice to cope better. I don't sleep for days on end and hear voices from time to time although much better lately. My depression is taking its toll on my loved ones and its making me feel even worse.

Hey, @Dennisthemenace, welcome to the forum:) I'm sorry you're feeling really depressed. I can relate, as can so many people on here, so you've come to the right place.

Are you seeing a professional and/or on any meds for the depression? That's a first step (or coming on here is). I know when I get in my worst depression I can go months without sleeping hardly at all and do start to hear things as well. It does take a toll on those who love us and care about us, but we've got to try to put that to the background, as the guilt is not what they want for us, nor will it help us in getting better. I know that's easier said than done.

Glad you found the forum. I'm sure you'll get a lot of good coping techniques offered. Mine is often to force myself into the shower as a first step, then to try to force myself to keep doing things I don't want to do. I'm not the best person to talk to, however, as I am struggling w best coping mechanisms as well for the days when I just can't do that. xx
