Firstly I would like to thank you all for your messages over the last few days. They have been a life-saver.
I am beginning to think that you who respond to treatment are naturally quite extravert and fun people but suffer from this illness.
However, I feel i am just a depressive person. I have always tended to be very quiet and school, would be scared to put my hand up to answer a question. I am no fun at all. I hardly speak to people to bring up a conversation and the only thing i enjoyed at school was homework.
May be this is why antidepressants dont work for me. Im not an optimist like you all. My whole being is of reservation and introversion and that doesn't make for a happy life.
I have tried CBT and psychoanalysis but you can't change the person you were born to be.
