Dealing with Depression!

I really think my life is falling apart right before my very eyes. After dealing with the flooding we had here, I thouht I could survive anything. But I don't think I was ready for a failed relationship, especially when I invested so much of my fucking time and energy into it. Now, I think I'm going into a super depression which I can't seem to help. I know the sysmptoms well. Irritability, lack of energy, sudden outburst of anger, just mad at the friggin world. It's been going on for the past couple of weeks and I can't seem to snap out of it. I don't want to see a shrink, but I feel depression is getting the better of me. Life fucking sucks.

I'm soooooooooooooo there. This has been the worst year (yes, at only March 8th) of my life. (And I'm not young, so I've had much experience ).

I've been dealing with the same thing.

First - it's SO important that you actually realize where you are. In your mind. That's the biggest part. To get right with what you feel. Next, promise yourself or someone you truly love like a friend or family member that you will never harm yourself. That's very very very important! Do this, and keep this promise. Remember if you ever need to just talk/vent/bitch/complain, there's plenty of people to talk to. Especially on here, even if you don't know them,... someone will always listen.

Try to engage yourself in some sort of physical activity (if you can). Go to a gym, play tennis... do something physical. The endorphine release will offer up a temporary solution.

Do something you like - get a new tattoo, rent your favorite dvd, spoil yourself.
Stay away from negative influences. If there is something or someone that is causing you pain, even if it's only by their mere existence... A-V-O-I-D the situation.

If you need to, talk to your family doctor. They can prescribe medication that can help and without all the hullabulloo of a pysch consult. Just be open and honest, no matter how hard it is. If you get antidepressants, take them only as prescribed and don't stop if you feel better. You need to work out all the issues that are at the root cause first.

Just try, and I am king of not doing this.... Just try to realize that you do love yourself, no matter if so-and-so or whatever doesn't. Even if you don't feel like it right now, you DO love yourself. You have to. I mean, by your willingness to be so open and frank about such a deep topic shows your self-desire to be back to a state of mind where you were happy.

I hope this helps... I sadly have first hand knowledge of all this.

And,... just because I wanna, here's a to you.

Keep your chin up, I PROMISE things will get better. They always do... even if they take forever to happen.
Life never hands us anything that we can't handle. I promise.

Yeah I feel your pain. Just know if you keep plugging along eventually things do change maybe not at the speed we would like them but they will.

Keimo It's too bad you're going through all that. Just remember that we're all here for you, and that you can talk to us, leave a message, PM, whatever, and someone will always respond.

I know about floods and depression...neither are fun things to go through But I echo what Nathan said. You have to be sure to look out for yourself, and do what's right for you.

I'm seeing a shrink, I was very reluctant initially, but having someone to talk to is actually a really good thing. I've been getting better, no more prescription medicine! Be open to everything...I know it's hard, but take it from someone who's been through it.

Sorry to hear you're depressed. Time really does heal things. A change in outlook doesn't hurt matters either.

Well...first off, thanks you guys for the great advice you have all given me . It really is great to know that there are people rooting for you. It's hard, but I'm trying. I went for a long long walk today and I kinda felt better for a while, until I got back home , but that's a start I guess. You guys are great. I like this site because you can just come here and sound off and people listen .

Keep your chin up. Me and my 2 colleagues were just saying the other day that we are all covertly depressed. Not full blown depression, but some times during the day, we all feel like crap.

i have been depressed too
all what Atheneum wrote to you is OK but
the first thing you have to do is contacting the best psychiatrist you (or your relatives/friends) know as soon as possible and trusting him/her
the greatest mistake one can make is thinking to heal by oneself........
depression is a desease like all the others and one needs specialistic help......


cheer up!
