I am a male, 28 years old. I am fighting depression since September 2020 and now as my shrink told me it's severe. I have a good job but constant stress and mistakes done on the job are making things worse. I often take sick days and I can't handle smallest inconveniences now. The only reason my employer has me is because I had worked a lot in the past and they think I am a good employee. The future seems to be dark there is nothing out there for me. Need advice from any of you who has been there before. I can't talk to anybody as the society where I live in still thinks that depression can be snapped off.

Also, I apologize for my punctuation I am not a native English speaker.

Welcome to the forum. A lot of people here can relate to what you're saying. Depression is a common illness, unfortunately.

Sometimes I imagine a lot more people than we know, are just plodding along in silence with their issues, and they can be co-workers or even family that you live with, and you don't know the burdens they feel because we all seem to hate talking about them. It's like a silent epidemic (pandemic really, of course it is all over the world).

I want to heal myself, I really do but I can't find the strength to move out. It isn't easy seeing your whole future go down a slope and you cannot do anything about it.

If you truly want to heal yourself than there’s only one way. It’s YOU! Now grant it that it’s always easier said than done. But we all have the power to change course. Yes I know it sounds simple, but it ain’t. Depression can ruin your life, trust me I know! But ask yourself one thing.. are you worth fighting for??!

I am worth fighting for. I have done mistakes and I have to get up and make it straight.

The key to stress is having a passion and perusing it. For me its astronomy. Im a computer geek but when im not doing that i enjoy looking up.

Theres no real key to depression, its unique and life long. Finding ways to cope takes time but you will find them. Games work for me.

I was learning Blockchain myself but, often when I am under depression I cannot concentrate on that. Still trying to figure out how can I live with it, medication is helping but I don't want to rely only on those.
