I dont know what to do

Ive been having symptoms of depression on and off for about three years now. I lost a of wieght at one point. I gained a lot of weight back. I feel lonely and cry because of it, even when i was with someone or about to leave someone.
Anyway, I cry, I eat more than I need, I have tried to gain happiness through sex, and all i feel is that no one loves me or wants me around.
I took an online depression questionaire and it said a score over 21 could indicate major depression and my score was 42.
I want to talk to someone about it, but I dont know who.

Re: I dont know what to do

Hi, I've been dealing with depression off and on for about 3 years now. The symptoms have not always been present, I drank a lot and partied for about a year and tried to gain happiness through sex too, which only brought guilt upon myself. I had no symptoms, I got my "fix" so to speak. It wasn't until my symptoms came back about 4 months ago and started taking a toll on my relationship with my boyfriend that I decided to get medical help. I talked to my biological mother about it and found out that depression runs in my family. Maybe you could talk to your family and see what they say? Perhaps depression runs in your family...I went to a doctor for help and I was prescribed lexapro. It takes about 4-8 weeks to reach its full effect, but I'm beginning to panic less and I'm starting to enjoy things I once enjoyed again, very slowly but surely. I was uneasy about taking an antidepressant at first, because drug addiction runs in my biological family as well, but I feel a lot better about it now. I know how you are feeling, and just want you to know that there are others out there feeling the same way you do. I spoke with some of my classmates and co-workers and found out they are dealing with depression and anxiety as well. It's a great feeling to know that I'm not alone, and I hope you can find someone to confide in. I hope things get better for you!
