    I'm pretty sure I have depression. When I take the NHS depression test I get quite high scores. I feel down and depressed all the time, I'm really tired even if i don't sleep. I self-harm and have suicidal thoughts. I just want to give up. It feels like life absolutely hates me. I don't care about myself much, it feels like my whole life to benefit others.

    It is like I can't feel happiness. I try but it feels fake. Everyone says happiness is a choice so why the **** would I not choose it? I want to be happy but strangely, i kinda want to be sad. I don't like feeling suicidal but i feel like i am choosing to feel that way. Everyone says depression isn't a choice or is it? I have a quite good life as it seems but my mental health is absolutely crap. Everyone invalidates my pain and I hate it. When can people understand that telling me to cheer up or telling me that i'm selfish makes me feel worse.

    I get exactly how you feel, that’s literally how I have been feeling as well. I feel like my whole life is to benefit others as well but sometimes that’s what he’s have to hold on for, for others. Hopefully when it does get better, we will want to live for ourselves as well.

    I've been feeling the same way. I have a good family and a good life but I just feel sad all the time for whatever reason. Sometimes I do feel happy but I will eventually remember how I feel
