Even the most severe depression is treatable.Although medications reduce depression ,apart from antidepressants prescribed by your doctor ,Therapy is also required.Medicines help nest alongwith therapy.Regular exercise is a powerful depresion fighter.Eating well and healthy diets increases energy and decreases mood swing.Strong social network reduce isolation.take good sleep.If these lifestyle changes dont make any changes consult a doctor and get a checkup done for the underlying cause.visit a mental health specialist and get a therapy done.

Hi I m 16 year old and I m always feeling tired and sleepy. I sleep like 8-9 hours daily so i don t think this problem caused my a lack of sleep. Sometimes i feel really dizzy, i can t see and i don t know where i am or if anything is real. When I m nervous my heart begins to beat really fast and i get very dizzy, I feel like I m going to fall down. I usually have headaches . I feel hopeless most of the time, like I m not good enough and like I never do things right. I like being alone and I never talk about my feeling with anyone. I have been cutting myself for over 2 years. I feel empty, I feel NOTHING.
