I have had fits of depression coming and going ever since I was fourteen. There was no particular reason, my mind seems to have a mind of its own. My moods continue to ebb and flow. Now I tell myself during periods of depression that it is a state that will soon pass. That is how I cope with my rebellious mind.

I was at the age of 17. And I know taht I wasn't just 'down' because it felt like a norm to spend my time crying, alone... and didnt understand why my mum thought this was a problem necessarily. I also couldn't point out the problems directly. In the end I go through it by making an effort to go out more - see my friends, but ultimately it ended when at 18 I left school finally and got a job I enjoyed!

i have.. but i'm bipolar so it happens frequently (but at least i can laugh about it now..) anyway, friends, family, faith really help. most important for me was finding a relationship with God. I dont know if tahts applicable, but for me it helped give me hope and, with bipolar, stability and peace.
