How My Depression Started


How does depression begin? How did your depression start?

Mine started 15 years ago. He was just a teenager trying to figure out how to fit. It was an awkward moment for me. I was a young Filipino in a white private high class school.

As my depression worsened, I cut myself again (self-harm). To be honest, it was the only time I felt anything. Many times, my thoughts turned: "I wish I was dead." Watch the video to learn more about how my depression started.

How My Depression Started

Comments 3

  1. I suffer from major depressive disorder since I was 13 myself. I was bullying in middle school which trigger my depression. I took anti depressant from 13 to age 35. I started cutting myself a lot around my mid 30s. I checked into a hospital after I tried to over dose on my medication and alcohol. I was put on just a mood stabilizer and doing very well. Looking back I believe the antidepressants caused the thoughts of self harm. I do not not have these kind of thoughts after stopping these type of drugs.

  2. My depression started from early childhood, but the first time I really remember being depressed was age 11 . Around age 12 or 13 was the first time I started having suicidal thoughts and attempted . I tried cutting but didn't want obvious scars , which lead to internalizing and a lot of pain . My self esteem has always been low , and it hasn't improved much , but I don't feel as bad as I used to . I do attend therapy now and I'm on bipolar and anxiety medication
