Yes. I remember when I was more resilient and functional. I thought it was bad then. I had no idea how bad it was going to get. I become increasingly isolated from the world to protect myself, and as a result I become increasingly sensitised to interaction with the world. It's a negative cycle.

Yes and no. I used to hold many more convictions, morals, and truths. I find myself backsliding then I pick myself back up.

Ultimately though, we're all degrading in some way shape or form each day. We're born to die, and tomorrow will always be worse then today to some degree.

For me, yes. For a while on the outside it looked like I was doing better but really depression was chipping away at me for years. I used to appear resilient but I think I was just angry. Now I'm just tired of being like this. I can't even push to help myself anymore, it's not sustainable. I won't last very long.

Yes it's getting now to the point where I cant focus or concentrate. My mind is deteriorating and so is my body.

Not me, 7 yrs getting worse, then treatment, "cured" in a few months, 3 years no symptoms & no longer on meds.
What treatment "cured" you?

This is me too. I look back and think, how did I do it? My life was far from perfect but it was never out of control as it currently is.

I used to think my depression and anxiety got worse with each passing year but now I'm not sure . Maybe living with it longer has just beaten me down a little and I'm just not able to cope with it the same as I used to.

Time hasn't healed because it's gone the wrong way. Look to the future? I'm in it. Certain things that add to my mental health woes it would be better for me just to accept but I won't because I shouldn't
