Top 10 Worst Things About Depression

The Top Ten

1 There is no promise that it is going away

Its really bad cause I can't do it on my own. I tried to get better,but its only getting worse. I really want to talk to someone,but I feel really ashamed.

I’ve had it for a year now and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. :( - Camaro6

2 Just about anyone can get it
3 It can lead to more severe issues
4 Attempting suicide

I've lost count of how many times I've tried to hang myself.

Please, don’t kill yourself. Life has much more to offer.

I’ve thought of suicide before. I felt, and usually still feel, like no one cares about me, like no one loves me. But I know it’s not true. Please, don’t commit suicide. I promise with my whole heart that there’s someone out there who cares about you, who would give the whole world for you. - Hermione_Granger220

I hate the pressure. - Camaro6

Ugh, hate the pressure so much! It just makes my anger bubble up so much that in any second I'm liable to snap someone's neck - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Learning new skills are much harder...

11 It can change a person's lifestyle
12 Low self-esteem

That's me on a daily basis, I act like I have high self esteem when in reality I don't...

I have no self-confidence whatsoever. - Hermione_Granger220

I've always had a pretty low self-esteem but depression can completely destroy your self-esteem and make you hate yourself - SirSkeletorThe3rd

13 Insecurity

A year ago and this year, I was bullied. It made me feel very insecure and I fell into depression/bipolar. I wanted to attempt suicide, but when I did that, I stopped and felt how life was. It was beautiful and I will get over this. I still have depression today but it's not as bad. - BubbleBear01

14 The feeling that no one understands

It sucks. It really does - ryanrimmel

It’s a terrible feeling. I’ve never told anyone about my depression. It’s overwhelming. I wish I could share my feelings with others, but I’m too scared. I don’t trust anyone to keep my secrets. It’s not like they’d care, anyway. - Hermione_Granger220

15 Hopelessness

I always feel this way... - Camaro6

I definitely feel hopeless...

16 It is difficult to come to terms with it
17 Bullies

The bullies only make it worse for you guys. This is why I hate bullies. - Pegasister12

18 Anxiety

Very horrible emotion - belarbi

This is me. I can’t trust anyone. - Hermione_Granger220

19 When others call it a phase

There are "phases" in which someone loves some unexpected music or something, and they act like something is drastically wrong. Then they treat feeling like you'll collapse under all of your hardships, and losing any sense of hope, as a "phase", and do nothing about it. Seem right? I think not. - PositronWildhawk

"Huehuehue the reason your so depressed is cause it's a phase cause you listen to that metal music huehuehue! " No, it isn't. It's not a phase it's a serious problem - SirSkeletorThe3rd

20 It can be difficult to open up to others
21 Regret
22 Being told you're just attention-seeking
23 People with it will take less care of themselves
24 People lie about it
25 The distraction
26 The lack of energy
27 Feeling guilty
