What pork wrote is damn scary!

I dont want to get on something and then depend on it. :(

I can't really tell if I have "mood swings". I definitely dont have mania. I would say that I have double depression. I'm constantly in a state where I'm pessimistic and melancholic and then when the circumstances also get bad my depression gets a lot worse.
For exmaple I have many health issues which depress me. But every time I am reminded of them for example if a symptom gets worse or if I discover something on my body which scares me then I become depressed immediately. I cant defend myself against this. It knocks me off my feet and then I'm basically unable to focus on other things which I needed to do. This is especially problematic in times where I needed to function and where I cant afford being depressed and lying in bed.
For me it's simply too much to deal with. Other people who are sick may be able to accept it but I cant. Every time a symptom shows up or gets worse than it was before I feel terrible.

I mean what shall I take against this? I dont think that there is any antidepressant out there which is strong enough to prevent this. I was already depressed when I had no personal problems years ago and now I have all kinds of problems which give me plenty of reason to be depressed.
