I get the drift having been there myself. stick with it, go out rather than magnify thoughts on a keyboard. Go for a walk and take everything in. It WILL get better. best of luck.

There is no point ... there is however help and hope , be as open as you can and seek help from the medical profession , there is no stigma anymore so please talk to a doctor and you should find there's loads of help and advice out there . you may find it passes or you may find it sticks around , if it's the latter trust me there are many ways you can live along side it relatively comfortably . You'll learn a lot about yourself on the journey , I wish you luck and a speedy resolve .

Get up on the Downs and just walk. If it doesn't seem to be working, walk some more. I've tried the pills, the talking therapy... but striding out in the fresh air beats them all. Good luck, you're not alone

To qualify my above point, I find dark ambient music serene and companionable in times of depression, having been there myself. In fact music played a large part in lifting me out of my own depressive state back in 2008. Good luck, I know you can't see the end but it can [and often does] get better.

Thanks. What worries me most that i have passed it on to my only child (by which i mean genetically, not in my parenting!)

There's a saying that depression is every family's greatest secret. It's certainly in mine, it's in my wife's. None of us have control of what we pass on: a lot of it is good, but negative traits inevitably creep into the mixture. That's life and creation, the balance of good and bad. Don't blame yourself, just pass on advice and experience if you ever need to.

What CtrlAltDel said. My dad passed depression and anxiety down to me, but then that meant that when I talked to him about it he understood and could offer advice - whereas my mum couldn't see why I couldn't just 'snap out of it'.

....or "man up", that's the other phrase. Very patronising.

Agree that walking is excellent. Don't wear earphones as you need to let your thoughts clear themselves.
If there is a component of worry or anxiety it really helps to write down honest feelings however odd they look on paper.
This seems to get it out of your head and let in some light.
When there is no one around force yourself to skip. It's really important you don't let yourself smile while you are doing this.......
