    now it seems like its not going.... i have no idea what caused it, but I'm thinking cause its something which happened months ago. even when I'm sitting with family, i feel like this... but i don't show that I'm depressed to them. people have noticed that I'm more quiet now
    When your depression initially triggered three years ago, was it under circumstances similar to what has triggered it a few months ago?

    Talking does a world of good (even if it be on an online forum). Do you have any sisters in your city/ college that you are friends with and can talk to? Or is this place your only interaction with other Muslims?

    What actions do you find ease the sadness/ burden on your mind? (i.e. going out, reading Qur'an, socialising, praying Salat, talking to Allah etc.)

    My phase only truly left when I talked about it with my mum and I let it out in front of someone who knew me. Prior to it, I was hiding it from everyone and putting on an 'actor's mask' in their midst. But once my weight started dropping off rapidly due to stress and insomnia and everyone thought (falsely) that I had anorexia, did I start tentatively opening up. I dunno how it went, but alhamdulillah it did! :insha: this phase will pass but it will be tough work and require lots of sabr and du'a and talking to Muslims who can give you a helping hand.

            Suicide isn't the answer. Also, when one person commits suicide, it can send another person over the edge or push them closer.

            If you need to vent here or talk, then feel free to do that. It's better than being alone with negative thoughts.

                sis fainted at work. She's convinced herself that she's dying and now wants me to accompany her to the hospital tonight. I have two essays due tomorrow, khair inshaAllah -.-

                  It is very worrying that you are going through it without help.
                  There is help out there sister. Maybe contact your GP or try counselling better if it is Islamic. Mind mental health is a good start.
                  Sister you are worth it and nothing anyone does or say should bring you down. I have been there. You have to be a bit stronger. Is your heart purified..free from hate and jealousy. Start with your heart and soul. Don't give up. PM me if you want to talk. May Allah ease your difficulties . Ameen
                  "Try to distance yourself from everything that causes you worry and sadness, so that you may always live with peace of mind and an open and tranquil heart, seeking Allah and His worship and working on your worldly and otherworldly matters, for if you try this, you will find rest.

                      Through fire and water… From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak I fought with the Balrog of Morgoth… Until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountain side… Darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time… The stars wheeled overhead, and every day was as long as a life age of the earth… But it was not the end. I felt life in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.
