Hi I am new on here and have been struggling a while with depression but I dont seem to be getting any better and in fact it is worse. I just don't want to be here anymore....nothing is right and just want the pain to end. On top of everything else my relationship has now ended which has pushed me lower and I just don't know how to get better. I have a teenager who sees how bad it is and I feel so sad that he sees me like this but I cant stop crying......I have spoken to close family but I dont think they understand just how bad it is....if it wasn't for my son I wouldn't be here I know that.
Please what can I do to help myself that haven't already tried. I am on fluoxetine.....trying to eat well , exercise and get sleep. I think this is hormal depression due to my age but the doctors don't seem to know how to help me.
Thanks

I think you need to get other doctors. An effective doctor would know how to treat your depression. I am sorry for the pain you're experiencing.

I'm sorry you are feeling this way and hope you do feel better soon. Go back to doctors and make them understand how serious this is.

How long have you been feeling low? If you have been on the Fluoxetine more than 6 weeks without improvement it may not work for you and can make some people feel worse so you may want to explore other options.
