Hello guys,

This is my first time posting on a forum and asking for help. I have been battling with depression for a few years and I had some severe depressive episodes, but somehow I found the strength to get up and keep going. Now it feels different. I'm at such a low point that I don't know if I'll ever get better. For the past few months I have been feeling really down, I've isolated myself from the outside world and I'm spending most of the days alone in my apartment and going to the gym. I feel like I have no one to talk to, because of my isolation, people kind of stopped contacting me and because of that I am really lonely. I always struggled with forming meaningful relationships and I'm afraid I'll never find a partner to share my life with.
I have recently graduated from college and I'm taking one year off to decide what master's program I'm going to pursue. For the past 3 weeks I have been looking for a job and I found something that I really like and I'm hoping that I'll get accepted, but the problem is I have lost the motivation to go to other job interviews. I've also lost the motivation in general, I feel like I hit rock bottom and I just don't see the point of doing anything. It all seems pointless to me. I literally can't imagine my life being different or getting better, I feel like I'm trapped and drowning. I'm afraid that I'll never be happy or I'll never enjoy things ever again. My mind is always foggy and sometimes it feels like I'm going crazy. Most of the time, I have negative thoughts and I kind of lost the power to battle them.
I don't know what to do anymore. I don't know how to work things out. So please, if you have any suggestions, I would be glad to hear them out. Thank you!

Depression is a bitch, but one can get over it, it takes time and determination but it will pass, what kind of enjoyment is to be found in Romania, can you get your self out have some fun?
I have been suffering depression for nearly 10 years now on and off and I know what it is like,
I have started going for walks, are you in a city? or the country side?
I would love to hear back from you so may be we can help each other.
All the best Woolie.

Hello, I see you are in the middle of a major depression, but you did not mention if you have pursued any type of treatment. If you have not, perhaps you should. Visit a psychiatrist and see what they recommend for you. Let us know if you have pursued any kind of treatment and how it is going for you.

Yes, it really does sound as if you need help. Or more if you are already getting some.
Maybe of a different kind.
I have been in the depths of depression.
No motivation and isolation are my enemies as well.

They keep us in depression because these are two of the major things that contribute
to it.

I have pushed everyone away and isolated myself.
Also, some days it is too much effort to even think what I need to do.

I’m glad you are managing to go to the gym, exercise is good for depression
Have you made any friends there?

Please stay in touch on the forum.
I have found a lot of help here.
