    Hello Everyone!      

    My name is Thorben and i come from Germany, i am 22 years old and currently facing depression,it seems to get worse everyday. Has anybody here fought a similiar demon? Some days it feels like i dont have a reason to get out of the bed,some days its better. Im trying to get help and i believe this is the first step to doing so!

    Welcome to this forum.

    I had clinical/very severe depression - found it hard to put one foot in front of the other, i.e. to walk!  It is not a demon although I understand if it seems that way to you.  I urge you to seek professional help since depression is a slippery slope and very hard to pull yourself out of without help. 

    Treatment is not necessarily drugs (which I didn't take anyway) but there should be talking therapy available - at least there is here in UK.  Not sure about Germany.  It helps you change your negative thought patterns, called CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy).  You will discover that you can choose how you react to situations which, how you are now, will probably be disbelieved!

    There is no need to feel socially anxious about seeing a therapist.  They are not there to judge you but are on your side, i.e. there to help you.
