For a long time in my life I've felt nothing but agony. And now I've started getting help seeing a therapist once a week and currently on protiq. And I guess what I'm trying to say is how do become truely happy? How do become someone who doesn't need drugs to make me feel alive?

That's a really hard question to answer, but just know that there are lots of people who know just how you feel.

For me, it has been an acceptance. By tracking and journaling, I came to discover that I have "good" days. The next step was to accept the good days. To accept that I was allowed good days. Accept that I sort of wanted good days. I have a LONG way to go - and each of us have our own struggle, and our own path. But for me, I HAD to accept happiness.

I think following a religion (in my case Christianity) is an important component in feeling your best. Christianity gives me hope. My faith may not immediately relieve pain, but I know I am not alone. Many people that are considered saints endured "the dark night of the soul." Even Mother Theresa.

Depression is an endurance race sometimes. Right now I am almost too depressed to go onto this site. But I know happiness is out there. God wants nothing but happiness for us. But we happen to live in an imperfect world where it is not always easy to find.

When I became psychotic (command hallucinations) my faith helped me from taking my life and that of my husband. I don't know what would have happened otherwise.

I don't think it is that helpful to just live a "spiritual" life. You need some structure, some community. With Christian community, I find acceptance despite my faults. It is a good feeling that helps me be happy.
