Hi @jay_baruch, thank you for being opening up about what you’re going through. I’ve seen many of your posts on Connect before and know that you’ve tried different therapies and medications yet your depression hasn’t fully subsided. As you mentioned, alcohol can complicate things as it is a depressant and can worsen the situation when combined with antidepressants: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/depression/expert-answers/antidepressants-and-alcohol/faq-20058231

Have you tried channeling your anxiety into hobbies? It can sometimes be a positive distraction that aides in the coping process. Here’s a list of some other methods in case you haven’t tried them: http://www.helpguide.org/articles/depression/dealing-with-depression.htm

I’m also tagging @jajade, @lilwitch, and @roxie43 who might be able to share their experiences. Never forget that you’re not alone, we’re here for you.

@aliskahan, thank you for the referrals and for the helpful links. I have been thinking about doing some volunteer work to help build up my self-esteem (hobbies), so I’m glad that you mentioned that as a reminder. I’m trying to get out of my head and into life in a better, more productive way; while it is difficult when one is depressed.
