Just joined today

I decided to join this forum today because I am sick of being sick. I have been dealing with depression for the last two years, and it's been a series of ups and downs. In my last couple years of undergrad, I have had to cope with stress from classes and work, and the combinations sometimes leads to falling back into a depressed state. I sick and tired of being tired all the time, fatigued and emotional. I know I'm battling against an illness, but it doesn't feel like a real illness; I feel like using my depression as a reason for missing class or missing work is not a legitimate "excuse". I just want to be better and not feel like I"m going to breakdown at any time.
