I would like to tell my essay about depression I had at the age of ten. When I was ten my first episode I was having hard time with school. I had also tried to commit suicide becase I felt has if there was no meaning in to my life. Everyday I would cry hoping that I would get help. After I had try to commit sucide I was put in the hospital and stayed there for five days. When I had got home I felt a lot better.

I think that all of have a reason for being depressioned there is so many who have suffered has much has I did and hope this will help everyone.

Now I take medcation and see a doctor every three months but I still feel pain.
