My boyfriend doesn't understand

Depression has been haunting me since I was a young girl. I feel like I need to tell someone.. I just.. want someone to listen. 

I used to think I was depressed because of my dad, but I'm beginning to think it really is a chemical imbalance in my brain. I get really depressed and rarely have good moments in my life. My boyfriend, is the best thing that's ever happened to me. He makes me happy when he's around, and I know he's trying to help me. He just doesn't understand when I get depressed and sometimes lashes out with words of destruction. I love him dearly and I probably wouldn't be here without him, I just need someone to understand a little.

Have you been to see your Doctor? I felt the same way you do and just taking to a professional really helped. Depression can be something that affects you for your whole life, you learn to deal with it rather than ever get rid of it I think.
