    I understand. I'm sorry about the bad things, Kat. It's good you resolved to rise above, or at the very least try to live differently.

    I can relate to that. Hmm. .. .so what's the best way to go about doing that? I have all the intent in the world to win back my lost years but I don't know where/how to start.

    you sound a lot like me, I've also got Dutch blood in me somewhere. I just call it blonde, since my dad's side isn't sure.

    are you me in a female body

    Hi

    What's the best way to deal with depression? Do you just 'get better but can relapse into it any time' or can you get 'completely cured' and it goes away?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm actually still working on that too. At first, I tried to contact my old friends and acquaintances, but that was a bad idea, because we all changed so much we were extremely estranged from each other. I tried getting back to the way it was, but then I realized that would never work. So instead I'm trying to meet new people. Going on vacations, getting new jobs, starting new hobbies, etc. Those are all opportunities were you can meet new people. And of course you can try to have a lot of fun with them. Trying to get online friends doesn't really work, though. Tried that, it's really a bad idea. The best way is getting to know people through hobbies.

    I don't really know the campings in the Netherlands, but I'm quite sure there are camping areas near Amsterdam. I'm not from Amsterdam myself, but Dutch people are such camping freaks there must be at least one camping in or around Amsterdam. I'd try searching on Google maps. Trains in the Netherlands usually travel from 5 AM to midnight, I believe. Maybe it's different in Amsterdam.

    Everyone copes with it differently, there is not just one way to cure it. I was lucky that I had someone who knew how to keep me a bit more positive, but sometimes that doesn't really work. I just forced myself to have a lot of fun and make good things happen to me. Surround myself with good things, try to keep the negative things from my life. It helped a bit, but in the end it was a really drastic change in my life that cured me. But even when I wasn't depressed anymore, it didn't mean that I was suddenly all well again. The depression was gone, but I wasn't back yet. The last part is a process that takes some time. Back in those days I compared it to cancer: when it's gone, you're still much weaker than before and there is also a chance that it comes back.

    Thanks for this! The people I know who are in depression seem to be stuck in it. It's nice to know that you can overcome it

    Well, nothing is impossible. Just try to help them, do fun things with them, make them believe in themselves even if they don't want you to. In the end they'll be grateful for you forever, just like I am for the few people who helped me.

    my parents had a bad marriage, its funny, I never really noticed it until the day they told they were getting a divorce. Could you tell your parents had a bad marriage while you where growing up or did it take a while?
    "I put the fires out."
    "you made them worse."
    "worse...or better?"
