Totally, it made you look like less of a jerk, you should edit your posts more often.

Welly blows literally, Your' partner wanting to come down as well?
I lived there for 21 years, and my partner lived there for about 5. I dont think hes a hurry to return, I love the city but I'm not sure if I could live there for at least another few years. I was working in the Cbd during the february quake, saw people die in Cashel Mall and many many others badly injured. Went home, the sewage came out our front door (not just our sewage, our neighbours too!) for a few months. The house is still quite damaged, Eqc may be 4/5 years away we've heard as we are Tc3.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Nice one The driveways also got a few massive holes in it now, looks like they were doing some testing on it... you'd think they could have filled them up afterwards or something.

Take off your shirt hunk

Re: How do you deal with depression?

I am currently going through a depression, eand it really sucks. Like you dont feel like doing anything, you just surrender and want to sleep... I also have to study and its nearly impossible in this state of mind. Anyways my biggest issue is that 2 friends backstabbed me some time ago and this has made my social anxiety reappear (I have lost my self confidence lately), it sucks...

The entire forum might as well go to a group therapy together. There is too many people suffering from the same shit. Why are we so fucked up?

And friends from other regions? And acquaintances ?
I don't know if you are at the uni or still in highschool, but can't you meet new people in parties ? Ok I know, when you are depressed, you just want to crawl in a hole and die there.

Maybe you should try to meet them, maybe going out with new people might help you a bit....

I don't know, it's up to you to know.

I think the society is shallow and very exigeant with us perhaps

Also, from what you've said about your experience, I agree with you that it sounds like what you have is depression, rather than bipolar disorder. I guess Matias and Debby thought it because of what you said about self-destructive behaviour -- my doctor/relatives briefly wondered if I was bipolar when I was at my lowest about 18 months ago when I kept on self-destructive streaks, but it was more a cry for help, it wasn't really the same thought process as someone who's bipolar, and as you say there weren't any highs that you would get if you were bipolar either.

Actually you got it all wrong.

Bipolar disorder can be associated with depression (my mom is depressed AND bipolar)
also I don't see why it might not be a cry for help for bipolar persons? that's what happened with my mom a few times....

being bipolar doesn't mean you have necessarily highs so to say. You actually two moods : one in which you are depressed for weeks/months, then suddenly you are OK for months.. then you are back into depression....
My mom is stable now, so of course there are moments she feels down and sad, but it's not like before anymore when she was really at her lowest, wanting to die, etc etc then suddenly "I am alright, why are you guys all worried for me, it's alright, it was not a big deal at all !"
