I notice I have problems letting go. I come to tears once in a while about things that happened months (even a year) ago. I'm still pretty reasonable about it but I realize that the pain that makes me come to tears is not and I don't know how to make it go away. I'm scared because, even though I don't get suicidal, I can't seem to find a reason to live and I want to die constantly. How can I make it go away? what train of mind should I follow? it's really hard to go on with my life when I don't feel it's worth it.

I used to be able to control my depression by thinking about all that is good in my life, but eventually it stopped working. I went to see a doctor and he prescribed antidepressants. If the depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in your brain, then the medication is , I believe, the best remedy. Time to time I get off, but if something bad happens, I go back on it. Life is too short to live it in the darkness. Hope you feel better soon.
