Depression feels like sadness, hopelessness, isolation and pessimism. If you feel anxious or "empty" you could be clinically depressed. Many people try to self-medicate for depression by using alcohol, tobacco, prescription or illegal substances.
When self-medicating, it's easy to lose control and become addicted. Depression is no joke, and you should never feel ashamed or alone - there is help out there. Because so many of us struggle with depression, many of us are able to support you when you are down.
