Hey Lisa. I had a childhood with liver failure and Lymphoma. I spent many years having been bullied to the ground for my conditions and I suffered many years of depression. PM me and I will answer any questions. I've been there and might have some insight for you.

I've been there. It's a horrible feeling. U must change your mindset from negative to positive. Do not give up, you are much stronger than you think you are. I've learned , No matter what you are going thru or feeling, it could always be worse. In my series of life's unfortunate events , I've taken away a new lesson. But each of those lessons had something in common, I realized ... It could be worse. Think about it... No matter what, it really could be worse. That is actually a positive thought, because it shows you that there is hope, and you are not at the bottom. You are in the middle, not the top, not the bottom , but the middle. Get that thought into your head, and strive to get up, get higher. Every situation I dealt with, that's what helped pull me out. You control the outcome of this , you will win. I know depression intimately , I know the feeling of thinking... I can't be any lower. But it's all perspective. My new fight is stage 3 esophageal cancer, I now look back at my depression and anxiety fights and think, I beat that. Beating the enemy inside you is a tough fight, but you can and will beat it. Remember , it could always be worse. You feel like you are underwater gasping for air , but.... The air is just above you, swim up as hard as you can and breathe. You are not alone , you have support. But no one will know you need help unless you tell them. If you are hiding this, don't .. Tell your family and friends , they will support you thru the fight. You are driving force behind this fight that you will win. But you must ... STAY IN THE FIGHT!!!
