> > Hi, I first became depressed when I was ten years old. It resulted in irritability, anger, and conduct problems in grade school. I'm now 32 and I'm not angry, but I have been a really low-functioning depressive for about 7 years. I have horrible insomnia, I experience no happiness at all, and I can't even laugh at anything any more. I can literally watch a funny tv show for hours and not feel like laughing once. It seems pretty obvious that my depression has gotten worse with age. How has your depression progressed as you've gotten older. Has it gotten better or worse?

> My depression has become significantly worse over time. Mine started no later than age 10. Irritability, anxiety, and anergia emerged first, followed by depressed mood an dysphoria.Still later, cognitive and memory impairments became evident. Interestingly, depressed mood and dysphoria have mitigated, although a lack of interest and motivation persist.

Hi, the progression of your illness is very interesting. Mine has really gotten worse over time. The thing that alarms me the most is that the longer this goes on the less I care about everything and the more I detach from life.
