Yeah. :(
I'm hoping my new medication will help.

It could be because it's winter? My Mom gets the same way around this time. If your depression starts to get serious though then please talk to someone about it.

It's scientifically proven that people's moods go down during the winter due to lack of sunlight.

But yeah, definitely feeling you :c

Most of my recent depressed moments come from alcohol, haha. Doesn't do wonders for me. Otherwise, despite a lot of personal stuff going on that has been bringing me down, I've been okay. Happiest I've been in a couple of years, I guess.

I'm somewhat depressed and feeling a little unproductive. I think it's just the weather, though as some above me said. I was so happy last Friday because it was sunny and I could see green grass. Then the next day it became cloudy and then it snowed a lot. The sun hasn't came out since then, just cloudy. :(

I feel a little down. Ever since I came down with a cold/flu/something of 5 days, it's thrown me out of whack with school. I'm trying to get back into it, though. I just have less energy and just not care as much as I first started this semester.=/

Yeah I've been depressed since December, but thankfully the meds i have are helping it out a bit. I'm diagnosed with two mental illnesses so depression is hard to cope with, but at least i have my therapist to talk to and she's trying to get me into a weekly meeting instead of the chance of hospitalization again.

i have moments

my five-year-old son is on his way to minnesota with my parents to visit other family. it's the first time we've been quite that far apart and the first time he's been out of the state without me. i know my parents will take good care of him but i'm still getting sad and panicky.. and then i woke up to another snow/ice blizzard that goes all the way to central iowa. right now i'm just having the WTF???!! feeling and fighting the urge either to take off after them because my truck will just leave me stranded or to pick up the phone and tell them to come home because i really can't handle this ;_;

Horribly miserable and anxious because I'm working on a thesis that I hate, and I'm too far into it to back out now. I'm getting to the point where I'm too worked up over the damn thing to bring myself to do anything that would actually help get-r-done. I'm seeing someone about it in a little over a week because the xanax that I'm currently on is hardly doing anything, and within the past week I've crashed and gone from needed to sedate myself every once in a while to needing to sedate myself as often as the instructions say I'm allowed to. I'm also smoking a LOT more now than I used to since it keeps me from losing my mind between the xanax breaks.

I'm not in a good place right now.

I kinda get the blues in the winter. It makes me more...blah feeling. I love the days where it's bright and sunny. The dark grey days like today are just..pleh. I've been feeling kinda lonesome at home the past few days. When you've been waking up to someone snuggling you in the morning for like a week and then you go back to waking up in bed alone it's kind of jarring how drastic of a change it is.

My cat wont let me snuggle him though T__T stupid cat.

I havent been depressed, but have been extremely irritable lately.

As for the season, I love winter. The sky above the fields near my work were blotched with various shades of grey; it looked like a watercolor expressionist painting.

Surreal, and beautiful.

That is the one thing that I do love about winter; the contrasts of the seasons and the beauty it casts on the landscape. Lately, the snow geese pass through here, and it's so lovely to see them speckled in a field, where patches of brown grass poke through, and the white of the geese blends with the white of what little snow is left, with the occasional speckle of a Canada goose. It's lovely.

I think I have reverse SAD. I'm always feeling better in the winter than I do in the summer (which is why I liked living in Montana more than Texas like I do now).

For me, it's the summer heat that really gets me down alot. Usually between the summer term and the fall term in school is my worst moment.

I felt down today... beautiful summer day here in Oz, but I just felt kind of annoyed.
Didn't get to go to the Chinatown markets, Spotlight (fabric store) and I can't go to this ice skating event with my friends from my old school tonight since my mum's going out to dinner... Not to mention they're all talking it up on Facebook, and I'm kinda jelly :C (though one of them I don't really count as a friend, since when I slept over when I was 11 she told me she goes on porn sites and tried to show me a video... god, my eyes...) It kinda pisses me off that my friend's friends with this girl since she's really perverted, annoying online (meh, yeh, whatevah etc. gets really anoying) and doesn't give a crap about anything. e_o;;

REALLY uncalled for. .___.
If someone's depressed and can't seem to snap out of it, regardless of age, it's pretty serious and they should ask for help from someone. Really, the only reason I've been mildly happy lately is because of my new medication.
I hate it when people stereotype depression in teens to be typical and an everyday thing. Because it's not. .___.

I like that analogy.

Today, the grey has all but left the sky, and been replaced with deep blue and marshmallows.

The beauty is such a stereotype.

Bleh, cosplay is my outlet for when I'm sad because it helps me not think about stuff. I'm just saddened, not depressed though. My best works come from these periods of slight sadness that last two weeks or more sometimes. I'd say ever since the end of Valentine's Day I've been really sad. I got swept off my feet only to slam back to reality with other issues and burdens and other people trying to make me feel like crap. XD It'll all pay off for the next convention I go to though with my cosplay!

This mixed with homesickness since the second week of July last year. I really miss my friends back home, and the relatives and cousins here aren't treating well, ditching me or ignoring me and being superficial towards me and only kissing my family's ass for money they need but just spend it on designer items. The relatives don't feel like a family. My friends back home were more of a family. Even my parents agree. My depression got worse during December due to being stuck at my relatives' houses (who never cleans and it's full of mold, weevils, cobwebs, dust, and their dogs weewee pads everywhere) during the holidays and it being Winter. Winter used to be a happy season for me, but later on in my life I've just gotten depressed from it and that there's some big fight going on during that time for a reason. And through most of the time spent here since I didn't get a lot of college classes I've mostly clean because my dad couldn't clean properly and had to help out mom. I'm doing a bit better, but I realized ever since coming here I've just been cleaning. I rarely spent money for myself. I had to buy myself new clothes for the weather here, and my dad would just use his money to buy frivolous and useless items in trying to one-up the relatives and made me end up not buying my regular manga and video game flow. So now I've been a bit irritable having the need for my regular manga flow and video games.

I've been down for a while now

The biggest chunk being career choice. Not only do I rarely have time to think about it, I don't see myself doing anything and my lack of decision is a real killer. Not knowing where I'm going in August bothers me and the due date to a good portion of the programs was today.

On top of that, I got so many school work and fixing problems that doing anything for fun(video games,cosplay,etc) is rare

many people say that speaking up would help me...just I wonder who would really listen to it

I was told by the financial aid people at my college that I only had to have 6 credits to stay in the dorms, which was all I could afford since I didn't get a lot of financial aid this year. Then about 2 weeks into semester I got an email saying I had to be taking 9 credits to stay in the dorms, so I had to quickly get into another class, which I JUST barely managed to talk the prof into letting me in, and had a ton of wirk to catch up. So now I owe my college $3300, which I have to pay by the middle of May or I can't apply for summer classes = I can't live in the dorms = I will be living in my car over the summer. I had $1000 saved up for it, but then yesterday my car died on me and the mechanic told me that they will have to take the engine apart to see what is wrong, and if it's what he thinks it is it will cost AT LEAST every penny I have to fix. So I am back to square 1 with the debt, and my job is now cutting back my hours since business is slow. I was already looking for second jobs, because even at full hours I wouldn't have been able to earn the full amount in such a short time, even though I am spending only about $30/week, mostly on gas for the 30 minute round trip to and from work; I MUST get a second job within the next 2 weeks or I will have no chance whatsoever of not being homeless over the summer (and considering I live just outside Detroit, I realllly don't want this to happen.) In addition, I'm running behind in even the three classes I am taking because my job that I already have is from 4-9 in the morning, so I have to go to bed super early and thus miss out on a lot of homework time. I can't move home for the summer, because I will still have my one job here, and I have literally no one and nothing to fall back on in any way, shape or form. I'm putting up a cheerful face to my roommates so they won't worry about me, but it is getting really hard not to be like :bigcry:

i have beeen battling depression for years but like any big anime villian it does not die (or get destroyed as the disney nauro shippuden say) till a few seasons later :/

funny thing tho that just happened i got really mad at my mom for doing her usal "im better than u laugh" that she uses whenever i have a good idea or somthing big to say its really annoying but anyway i went over to work were ima alone and tryed to burn off some steam i never knew how mad i was but i was yelling and i sounded exactly like the english dub of vageta from dragon ball z

its funny how my mom thinks shes saying somthing good thats ok to say somtthing that wont get people mad but seeing how arrogant and stuck up she is it usaly does. and she acts surpirsed when i get mad at her -.- she thinks she so perfect. shes like chi chi from dragon ball z doesnt know a thing about her husband and son are dong but she feels she can stick her athority and take over anything she wants to even tho she does not know a thing about it. and oh yes she yell way more than chi chi does and she wonders why i get mad at her shes also like the mom from malcom in the middle just a control freak...

its hard enough the stress of planning a cosplay and making sure its done before the next con and such, but when she thinks she can step her athority into my terrioty she has another thing coming.

Baaah. I know I've been battling depression for a few years now... I hit an all-time low back last June when I went in for what was supposed to be a simple surgery that got botched and I got stuck in the hospital for a month. I felt so helpless and alone... They gave me Paxil while I was there.
But my depression comes and goes... with the way this winter has been, I know it's affecting me up here in Maine, big time. Plus, my husband's been bugging me about making friends (even though I prefer to be alone), but we're moving in a few months, so it'd be kind of pointless. It's been hard ever since he's joined the navy.
I've been pretty down since the beginning of the year... Not many things to look forward to, but a lot of things I'm going to regret.

Ouch, I am so sorry you are going through that. :( I experienced something along those lines about 9 years ago, when I was part of an organization in another hobby... I still apparently have active hate clubs out there. Back then it really tore me up, but now I'm just amused by the waste of their energy. What I learned was to keep my head up and keep my dignity- when confronted with a reasonable person and a raving lunatic, most people can figure out which is which (and if they can't, they aren't people you want in your life anyway).

Every 15 Minutes started today at my school. If you don't know what it is it's basically a simulation that every 15 minutes someone dies from a drunk-driving accident... Two upperclassmen that I'm close to were taken away. And tomorrow's the funeral ;__;

Aiyahh. They did that at my old school last year. I barely knew many of the people "dead" but I still got in tears by the funeral. ;______;

I wonder if there is actual studies that have been done that show programs like these prevent drunk driving. I remember the one we had, and though I didnt drink, if I did I probably would not have stopped. The whole thing was just a bit too over engineered to bring on sadness for my liking.

I bet if anyone ever did any real research on the matter, it would die just like the DARE program did when researchers found that the system's "just say no" campaign actually increased the chances of a kid doing drugs.

In regards to the Every 15 Minutes program (ours was called shattered dreams) I would predict any publicity and focus that a negative (that could be argued) idea receives serves as the planting of a seed in peoples minds, especially young adolescents. That seed of thought may lead to things that would not have occurred had there not been the initial exposure.

What I am trying to say is:
If there is a button that says do not push, would you push it?

Tonight. I'm up late, so naturally I'm feeling kind of bleh. Especially since the reason I'm up late is that I was woken up from a text message of a friend pissed at me.

Fixed that problem.

Then... well. I couldn't fall asleep. And slowly, things went into a downwards spiral.

Depressed that I don't have a job and all my friends are easily getting them. Ugh, I do everything right in an interview and still don't get a job, I mean what do these people expect from me? I've got good grades, got the experience!

One previous interview I managed to get a second interview, didn't get the job (unsurprisingly) and they gave it to a girl who was so stupid. I got served by her one day and she was like "The till isn't working!!!!!!" and a staff member said that she hadn't pressed the total button.
Omg... How hard is it to work a till, I got experience with handling money and actually WORKING a till and I didn't get the job? Really?

My mom is going into a tough spot right now. She's disabled, mentally and physically...

Anyway, she blames me for...pretty much anything. Never taking any responsiblity for herself... Like she spilt juice on the laptop I bought her while I'm at school, it's my fault for buying it from Sam's Club.

This has been happening since I turned 18, I was ill prepared to take on my mothers problems as soon as I turned 18. She was perfectly fine when I was 17. Two weeks before my b-day she lost her job, which explains things a lot. But how does a mother tell their daughter 'I hate you' when she has never said or expressed that before?

It has been a year now since that incident and it still gets to me. She said 'sorry' and that she really didn't mean it. But what if that is how she feels about me and she won't admit to it? My Stepfather threatened to kick her out of the house if she said that again. But he said that then went to cry in the bathroom.

It's very depressing to see the second family you've ever had break apart because of you.

In other news, I got a prescription for Celexa yesterday. Hopefully this will help me get through my thesis without wanting to die.

It's a long sorry why I have shut art out of my life for so long (since high school). I haven't picked up a pencil since pretty much. u_u I'm going to be going out tomorrow and picking some stuff up and start trying to draw again. If I enjoy it as much as I remember I might go to school. :3 I'm more into dance and things like that now but, it's my life path to do art. n_n

I don't think I'm depressed, but lately I've been feeling... I dunno, down? I've been internalizing a lot of my worries and end up being overly testy and sensitive... and it's kind of ruining my relationship with my family. The 'tsundere' personality does NOT go over well IRL, believe me. o_o

I'm trying to get over it but it's really tough for me to communicate anything that isn't superficial through speaking. The words just don't come out right and it leads to a misunderstanding. Even though I've been going to therapy and have been "getting over it" on the outside, I'm still really deeply hurt by the loss of my friend.

I still do have one other friend who I've known forever (and I'm grateful for that) but I can't open up to her, at least not about this. I don't want her to feel isolated because I probably had a much stronger bond with this girl I'd only known for a few years and it seems like every little thing in my life reminds me of her because we were so close. She made me feel like I was needed, and now I feel like there's a part of me missing because no one depends on me anymore. I know it's kinda weird, especially because she was like the big sister figure who made me open up, not the other way around. But even though I felt like I had nothing to offer it was such a special feeling that just "being there" was good enough.

Sorry, I ended up ranting. It always feels easier to tell the world my issues instead of confiding in people I know.

more frustration than depression, and going along with the unemployed theme here...

i had a lead on a job where they were going to hire me for the 5 hours a day my kid is in preschool, all i needed to do was go in, fill out an app, and talk to the owner (who my parents and i know personally) which i was going to do tomorrow since he said he would be there. when i went to pick up my son today, there was a note in his folder stating that because of my lack of work, he would be moved to the afternoon half-day class starting tomorrow. this is the first i've heard about it, and now i'm in a position where i may as well not even bother trying to get a job, because the place i was going to work will hire me for 5 hours a day, but not 3. even if i go ahead and get the job, my son will likely not get his spot in the full-day class back

there are 2 months left for this year, and my son is going to kindergarten next year. the teachers know how to handle him and he has friends in that class, so why are they screwing up his routine when all they have done for the last 2 school years is stress the importance of having a stable routine, especially since he doesn't handle change well? the teachers agree with me, but the people in the office feed me the line of "we have procedures we have to follow, too bad for you"

government funded preschool, i hate you. i'm now in a situation where i can't get a job no matter how hard i try, because i have no reliable babysitter and can't afford daycare. if my son didn't have friends in that school, i would pull him out first thing in the morning and tell them "f*ck your funding, that's one less head you're getting paid for"

Yes, but I'm bipolar.. so it's all over the place. I take medication for my fibromyalgia, and it helps with my mood a lot, too. If I do get really down, it's usually for a legitimate reason.

I use the word "down" because people misuse "depressed" when they're truly just very down. I have to separate those feeling, because it's just confusing to say you're depressed to someone.. when you're just down. Depressed for me is not wanting to move, unable to cry, or care about things I hold very dear to me, sometimes go mute, sometimes on a verge of suicide. I suggest anyone try and separate the two emotions, it makes it easier to think in moderation for yourself. If you're down, you can at least say "Okay, I'm just down, I haven't lost all hope." even if you feel awful. It's just something to help mentally.

I woke up and cried this morning. Mostly because I had a TERRIBLE headache from being hung over two days in a row... >.< But hey, depression might play a wee role.

I really feel that the best days of my life are coming to a close and now I need to accept second-best days full of aging and making difficult decisions about marriages, careers, sexuality and breeding.

That said -- I am now having coffee, eating toast and getting dressed to go have coffee, lunch at a fancy hotel, and then hop a ferry to a gorgeous island to go swimming with 4 fabulous friends who are all in the same boat and probably cried this morning from goodbye-party-hangovers, too.

And no matter how much I exercise at the gym and how little I eat, I haven't lost a millimetre or a pound that's stayed off and I'm geting damn frustrated. I don't even have a giant goal, I just want to get down from almost 150 to under 140 and lose stomach and thigh fat. Fuck, the gym doesn't work. I need to go back to martial arts, but have zero funds for it. And I'm stuck in an auto-renewed contract at the gym too, where cancelling my membership before the next end of June would be several hundred more than I can afford...

theres two type of depression: Medical Depression, in which there is a physical inbalance of chemicals in your body that can actually be fixed by happy pills. And then there is the depression that can only be cured by fixing the problem that caused the depression, not by happy pills.

I've been seeing some docs now myself and that is what I have gathered, and actually makes sense.

Uh.

I'm afraid that that isn't correct.

Depression is a mental illness - some people experience simply depression which can be either long-term or short-term, or they can experience Clinical Depression which is long-term. Anti-depressants (usually SSRIs) exist to help keep your head above the water, but they do not fix anything. They are not a cure, they cannot fix a chemical imbalance, but they can help.

There is no specific "cure" for depression, but anti-depressants must be alongside some form of counselling or similar psychological treatment. So another option is to fight the route cause solely without the aid of medication, through counselling and the like.

Depression can come in all shapes and sizes, and what works is down to each individual.

That's bull. There's plenty of ways to make a career you love without the standard college/university experience. People are SCREAMING for skilled trades of every kind (carpentry, electricians, plumbing, constuction, drafting, mechanics, everything that involves working with your hands. Even seamstresses are in demand, and hairdressing and esthetics also counts as a skilled trade), and you normally do those through apprenticeship and co-op programs, so you're not sitting around in classrooms all day.
Performing arts? If you're talented enough, it can be done (though for the extra polish/edge, I always recommend classical training, which usually does require some college or such).
Internships can lead to excellent jobs or experience for a future job.
There's obviously the "dead-end" style jobs too that require little education, but there's also an opportunity to go from something like a retail associate to a store manager if you're devoted enough.

And if it's JUST high schoolthat's worrying you, there's also plenty of ways to get equivalent credits, like co-ops.

I'll cite my Mom as an example. Mom isn't a bookish person, and she never went to college. She instead found a love for carpentry, painting and generally fixing things, and a hatred for contractors that do half-assed work. She currently owns and operates a sucessful "all-trades" business and has done fantastic work overthe last decade on all kinds of structures, including town halls and historic buildings. And now she's expanding into home and mould inspections.

Far be it from anyone outside of whom is actually experiencing the emotion, to determine whether or not the severity of the expression of the emotion is valid.

Ragtime Mouth
08-02-2011, 07:32 AM
Using other words rather then "depression" to express negative feeling doesn't always mean it's less severe.

If someone has a chemically imbalanced long episode of depression, that's one thing, this doesn't mean your horrid feeling lately (with or without reason) is any less acute or serious. It's just an expression, thus sometimes it's easier to communicate (and help recover and better understand yourself) when you can separate your ill feelings into a broader variety of words. :) We're lucky enough to have speech, or else I'd just be hitting my husband with a rock and squawking. See, if I hit him with poo, it means angry.

It helps me, even though I take medication, since half of taking medication is working with it. Not just hoping it makes it all better alone.

Yes, seek professional help (that you may or not be able to afford), go through 100's of hoops of side-effects of many drugs till you find one that works. And don't socialize or try and find some sort of common ground to relate to with people within your own hobbies/job to feel less alone with some struggle. Perhaps this isn't that place to go on about it, but not everyone is an attention seeking emo out for winning the most "depwessing" sob story.
Not every debate is even about something negative or just having pity on one another. It can general opinions, advice, or just an uplifting tidbit about who someone else got through the same situation in X way.

Example- ShinobiXikyu earlier reply to someone who was upset about the careers that might not be available to her, and will be stuck in a dead end.

I was actually diagnosed with depression when I was 11. I was going to two therapist, one private and one group therapy at school. I dressed in all-black and called myself "emo." (So cool, I know.) I thought my life was so horrible but then I realized through group therapy that people had it waaay worse off than me and they were whining a lot less than I was. Then I was part of a program that involved learning problem-solving. By the time I was done with 6th grade I was over myself.

Since then I've had two or three much less severe spouts of depression. I'll be 17 in a few months.

And just like everyone else is saying, get professional help if you are seriously considering suicide. Contemplating suicide often is a pretty tell-tale sign that you have depression and you should probably get a diagnosis. Honestly I don't trust anti-depressants because my mom's been on them on my whole life and they never helped her, plus I never took them and I was just fine, but I know someone that's been on them since he was a kid and he's just fine. (Though that's another reason I wouldn't take them; you have to take them forever and if you ever actually do get off them you may have a relapse and not to mention the withdrawal symptoms are worse than the depression itself.) If you get the right therapist though it can work wonders. If that's not your thing get some sort of support system--every bit helps.

Also if it helps, if you seem to just be moody all the time for no reason (and you're a chick,) birth control can help. I've been on it for a few months now and everyone I know well has noticed a marked difference in my mood since I started it.

Ive had little spouts of depression since I was about 10 or 11....or so. I had probably my most severe bout of depression from the end of last year to the beginning of this year. But my mood has been greatly improving since then. :)

Frequently. It's not clynical depression or anything, I'm just very anxious and lonely feeling because everyone is always busy and I haven't seen my husband in 3 months with 3 more husbandless moths to go.

I'm a sad and I'm sadding.

Ahh, thank you for this! *_* I really need to look into it...Cause I've been moody for quite a good number of years now, and it's really starting to get to me. (To the point I've considered suicide...just once.) I just don't know if my mom would brush it off as a stupid superstition, or if I'd be too young to have it prescribed to me and whatnot...Don't really like being young. :/
EDIT: Ugh...it only makes it worse that I'm very insecure, have no friends remotely able to be there for me without going through a very complicated process of parent permission, and that 1 in 10 times do I get to talk to said friends online for more than ten minutes without one of them leaving...

Generally, everyone's depressed for some reason or another I think... Some have it worse though (in regards to the degree of depression... not the reason, I mean.)
It's probably the reason we don't notice happiness as easily and we notice sadness in ourselves. Sadness burries and cancels out all the happy in our lives (the way I see it at least :S)... In my time of depresion (mostly because of a desire not to move out of my one and only house and have some random new family come live in it while we go live in some place that'll never be the same as home.) I try and dig up the happy somehow and burry the depression.

I have been lately, but I think it's mostly due to personal stuff that I've been going through, topped off by the fact that I don't feel like I'm doing anything with my life. All the things that I would like to be doing require money, which I don't usually have enough of to spare.

Noxxion
09-06-2011, 01:22 PM
It's all about connection. Make good, genuine, trustworthy friends and you will find it very difficult to ever feel sad. You also need to learn to love yourself no matter what. Those two things lead to a truely happy lifestyle. The only part that sucks is the first thing because a friend like that is hard to come by these days...

But hey, if anyone needs someone to talk to feel free to PM me. I'm a good listener. ^_^

I play something from my huge collection of Monty Python or listen to some ridiculously upbeat music, on my end. Providing it's just a minor "Ick, I feel lousy" mood, not a BIG issue/real concrete reason to feel awful and needs to be resolved or it'll stay that way.

I can't tell if I'm bi, straight, or a lesbian.

...OK, definitely not straight. But lately... girls have been grossing me out. Or rather, the idea of having sex with them. And I'm also in love with a guy (though I don't necessarily want to pursue a relationship). I'm so torn... and at the same time, I don't even -want- a girlfriend. I'm worried I'm addicted to the computer.

Also, schoolwork's been piling up since I've been too distracted to finish it. Now I've got two weeks of homework and missing classwork to make up in one day (which also happens to be the day of my party).

i just feel out of place to the point where im not accepted by ehtir the overly sexual youth or the mature adultness. i just don't fit in, maybe im ment to be different.

I think I'm getting depressed again. Coupled with my horrible Internet addiction and my lack of substantial social life.

The other day, I was feeling particularly terrible. It was so bad, I drew a picture of an adorable Squirtle, then right under it, a Squirtle hanging itself. Also, a small, dramatic paragraph about "ending it all"...

In that same class, however, something remarkable happened. Last year, in Chinese, there was a girl who sat next to me for the last quarter of the year. I liked to talk to her, and she was really nice. Thankfully, she was in my Chinese class this year, as well.

I guess I must've looked down in the dumps or something, because as I was drawing said suicidal Squirtle, she suddenly turned around, and on the bottom of my paper, she wrote: ": ) be happy"

I was so touched, I started crying in the middle of class. of course, it was the quiet kind...

I notice I always hit a down after a series of days where I spend a lot of effort on other things. It can be a convention, or it can be a weekend full of work --- when I get back home, there's that melancholy of being back to the same routine.

After a week it sinks in and I find it hard to muster the energy to do much, until I re-adapt to it.

This time it was a whole weekend working at a customer site for a project, just gonna look forward to April and PAX East.

I'm super depressed right now, and I know the EXACT reason for it. I had to deliver medicine to the old folks home 'cause the nurse is a retarded bubblehead and left it on the counter. There were elderly people all just sitting around staring into air and one in a wheelchair just slowly spinning it in a circle. I'd die before I let my kids (if I have any) put me in a home after seeing that.

The hours at my jobsite just changed, now I only get 32 hours a week, down from 48. Talk about a pay cut. I'm just so sick of my job, but don't think I can get a better one that will actually be a step up. I've been depressed a lot lately, but don't know what to do. I don't want anything to do with pills- people have said that when on anti-depressants, they feel emotionally zombified- feeling nothing at all. Or that sure, the depression goes away, but so does their creative drive, and I kinda need mine.
I have heard that the meds are hard to go off of, and I don't want to be dependent on them.
I'm also afraid to seek out councilling- one, when would I have the time, with my work schedule, and I would be afraid to be truly honest. If I say I've ever contemplated suicide, are they going to try and force me into inpatient treatment? No way in hell would I tolerate living like that, inpatient treatment would be almost as bad as jail to me.

02-23-2012, 06:37 AM
@ Amanita

My therapist that I go to every couple of weeks is a really nice lady, she also does hypno therapy which really helps a lot, and most therapists can arrange after hours meetings. Coming from personal experience, stay away from the meds. Mine (about 3 different lots) made me go kinda....... borderline psychotic aggresive or as you were worried about, an emotionless zombie. I said no more after that lot. I talked to my lady about a few years back when I was borderline suicidal and we just talked about it, she didn't say anything about inpatient treatment or judged me. I don't think they can force you into that kinda thing 'cause it'd make the whole situation a lot worse for the very vast majority of people.

i dont and do like talking about my depression. for short i feel like a attention whore looking for something though i dont like looking for it because i feel like i have to be a attention whore to do it but at the same time i really want to find it- i really would like to find it and get out this rut. im 20 and im still stuck at my mother houses, in a two year college for my fourth year (how the fuck does that logic work), feel like a shitty example of a older sister, a mom who sometimes think she 14 , and a minimum wage work study job that treats me like shit,sleep like im dead.

i cant say any of this because one its whining and two complaining and someone always have it worst than me but that doesn't lighten the fact i feel sick and tired almost every day and probably am depress. i know there are probably alot of things i could do i just dont know where to start. according to my mother i should just stfu and deal with it but ..this cant be what it means to have a life or be a adult. i really hope im not just over exaggerating i do not like being a attentionwhoring outsider in my own body or any where else for that matter

I would say more but that would be evidence left behind. At the end of it all I will take a deep breathe and pretend like everythings good and I am happy to all those around me. Really I am used to the role by now.T

I'm hoping my new medication will help.

It could be because it's winter? My Mom gets the same way around this time. If your depression starts to get serious though then please talk to someone about it.

Seasonal effective disorder.

It exacerbates my depression and generalized anxiety. It's a ball sucker.

For a few years after I moved out of state I was able to get these things under control but over the last 6 months or more it's gotten incredibly bad and can be debilitating. I've had social anxiety issues as far back as I can remember, and issues with depression following soon after. These began when I was quite young, elementary school age and likely earlier when I began to really feel all of what I now understand as an adult where these issues.

It's kinda stupid sounding but actually being by a window and in the sunlight can help a lot with it.
