Does anyone else here have depression due to childhood or trauma, and if so do you ever really get over it, or just learn to live with it hurting a little less each day?

Yes - I guess the answer is learning to live with it the best we can one day at a time. Therapy of course helps

Hi bubblegumgirl yes I definitely have trauma from the past that comes back from time to time, it feels like almost as if it is haunting me. I feel though over time it does get easier living with your past. The way I try and look at it is today is today, we are in the present, so our past should not come into the present. The past is in the past. I feel though you got to deal with the past as it not going to help you in the long run, having undealt issues. I am speaking from experience.
