who's genes? WHo else in your family has it? Can you talk to them about it? Are you in therapy, or taking any medication?
Unfortunately, serious depression doesn't just disappear from trying to think happy thoughts. It has to be attacked like a cancer. Therapy and meds are a good start.
But, it's also important to look at your past and see if anything in your childhood needs to be dealt with that may be a part of the reason you are feeling this way. As children, we are so sensitive and impressionable to situations of long term dysfunction around us, that it can affect our adulthood in a clinical way.

Hi last hope, thanks so much for replying to me, yeah I had a horrible childhood, and still live a crazy life, I feel much better away from home. But it cost too much to rent. I go to my sister that is married for yomtovs cause it's way to intense at home and things are crazy!!!! I came home to a mess and started to cry. I felt sooooo much better and happier away. Then when I come home all thr sadness comes back. Like depression and anxiety!!

Hi FeelingAwful,

Welcome to the forum! Hope you find it helpful. Sorry to hear that you're feeling depressed. That's really hard!

It sounds like it would help you to move out of your parents' home. Could you rent a place with roommates?

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

Ok, even if you are a 21 year old girl. But how do I know the next person who wants to email me is? I dont think its smart to give out personal info to strangers. Truthfuly, im worried that you are so open with your info. I dont want anything to C"V happen to you... Be careful, ok?
Maybe in a month or two once I get to know you. Either way their are TONZ of amazing people on FS who can seriously support you tonz!!!!!! People here are awesome!!!
Sorry if Im hurting your feelings. Just imagine I was your daughter. Would you let me email strangers? It could be yes, but I wouldnt want my daughter to, especialy without my knowledge, so I should at least do that for my parents and do one thing they say ( cuz if they knew I was on FS, WOW!!!)

It doesn't get better for me feel so down and depressed. The only time I feel good is when I go out to a nice restaurant to eat. But it cost so much money. And when I get a mani pedi. And I don't have much money at all.
