I know a number of close friends who have beaten severe depression. The key is to realize that more often than not it can't be beaten without help. As Doug Larson says "The cost of living is high, but worth it." I couldn't agree more. Please talk to a school counselor or a medical doctor and they'll get you on the right track. It may take a while and some hard work may be involved but you and those close to you will be far richer from the experience. To echo some of the other posts, doing exercising is a great anti-depressant. The idea of "small successes" every day or every other day plays a role here. Here in New England we're going through a rough winter and exercise helps immensely. Anyway, please keep us posted on your inevitably successful battle.
