    Default Your experience with depression

    We barely understand this state of being, but I am positive that anti depressants are the last thing to solve it.

    A change of perspective with a bunch of serotonin releasing activities such as meditation or gym is said to be the best way to act.

    I hate depression and it makes my life hard every now and then.

    I just try to deal with it when it comes in my own way.

    It's never an easy thing and life is getting harder for us all, unfortunately.

    Start accepting that you are not the best and that at best every human is a glorified loser. We try 9999 things and fail at 9999. Things barely work out; if ever both in personal and professional life. Depression only works on humans who have high hopes for themselves. If you relieve yourself of that pressure, and start enjoying and taking pride in being a loser; the impact of depressive thoughts can be significantly reduced.

    Begin by making fun of yourself about all the embarrassing/dark/bad moments in your life. Watch how the stand up comedians do it. Instead of feeling shame, they make a joke out of everything bad they have done to others or others have done to them.

    Depression can be so crippling and painful that you literally feel sick to your stomach and don't want to carry on with your life anymore. It's absolutely a terrible problem for any person to deal with

    That's why it's very important to get the help that you need as soon as possible before it takes over your life, literally.

    Clearly you're someone that has never suffered from depression. You views, unfortunately, are fairly typical of someone that has little understanding of depression, it's causes and ultimately what helps to get you back. Please do some research first if what you're trying to do is educate people.

    I have for years.

    Just that I have come to accept it. I'm not fighting it any more.

    How I fight depression will not work for everyone. But, this is how I deal with it. I accept the crash that comes my way, instead of fighting it.

    Couldn't agree more, anti depressants are nothing more than sugar pills, their side effects include suicide ffs and this **** is legal? lol

    There is not even proof depression is a chemical imbalance. This is a pretty good read on the subject...

    Your post has really cleared up a lot of things for me and it's all starting to make much more sense now to me. I never saw it in that light before. Very much appreciated.

    Yup. They literally lock the serotonin receptors output so that whenever you take them, you cannot experience Joy or Sadness.

    Have you heard of meditation? There are many forms of it, but it has proven to be the most effective way to naturally release serotonin; more effective than sports and completing challenges.

    I have been on Fluoxetine now for some five years. I managed to come off it with no problems of my own accord at the end of 2014, but went back on them when my dad died in 2015. It doesn't matter what your situation is like in your life, depression can and does affect anyone regardless of their circumstances. Fluoxetine has been a great leveller for me and has worked.

    My personal opinion/experience:

    A good alternative is cannabis, certain strains are bred purely for their anti depressant qualities.
    Kush varieties including OG Kush help loosen up some of the physiological sides of depression.

    I don't know a lot on the matter or claim to, but know from having a family memeber suffer depression and also an ex colleague those of us who are lucky not to suffer from it will never understand what it is like to have it.

    If I've learned anything about depression, it's that if you haven't 'got' it, then you will never understand it. Despite your best efforts. I'm not Chinese, so I don't think I could ever truely understand what it 'means' to be Chinese, regardless of how much I study the culture.

    Depression is ******* horrible, when it strikes. It destroys you and everything/everyone around you. And it can attack you and your family and friends in a multitude of different, confusing forms that rarely apply 'exactly' to you, so you feel like you're making the whole thing up. And it can destroy your ability to function as a human or do anything constructive. And if you throw mania into the mix, then you've maybe got a ******* millionaire on your hands until it explodes in your face and takes out everyone else within standing distance, leaving a bloody wreck with no winners.

    Basically, it's ****. And few people understand. Next the person who tells me that depression, anxiety or bi-polar is "bullshit", which actually was said to me recently, is going to lose a faceful of teeth. And I haven't punched anyone in 30 years, and never not in self-defence.

    Quite frankly, given the unpredictable hell we (affiliates and managers) have had to handle and react to recently, it's amazing more of us are not already in psych wards. I'll prolly regret posting this tomorrow. I'm on new meds.

    I recently read this book - https://www.amazon.com/Not-Just-Up-D.../dp/0985239433 - which I found useful and easy to read, without feeling intimidated. Today I collected the second book in the series - https://www.amazon.com/Search-Our-Id.../dp/0985239492 - I expect it'll be equally informative and approachable.

    I know how it is my wife had cancer 9 years a go they removed it but she could walk on her own anymore, she was OK for well and then it came back two more times they removed it again.
    Well she was ok then her Doctor retired so the new Doctor send her for CT scan and here we go again one more in the lung this is when they told us sorry but you are going to die.

    It took seven mouths but on June 27th 2017 she passed away, I lost it! for nine years I did everything I can and then some, trying to save here and it didn't work I was so out of it I can't stay home I was walking all day and then on Sept the 1st my Mother passed away so I start going to the church it helped but I got hit on the head again on Oct the 27 my son passed away. so now I'm gating prayer support at my church every Wednesday Thank God.

    Suffering depression can happen to anyone and can be triggered by anything. I myself probably like several people have suffered depression in some shape or form. My depression was quite deep and it took sometime to overcome it. What I did do was remove alcohol or drink under strict moderation as this alone can lead to depression becoming worse. Another I did was avoid negative people and surround myself with positive ones instead, and yes going to the gym helped. Over time whatever caused you to become depressed will become a distant memory and life moves on and things do become better.

    This not good.Ok stay away from negative people is good but turn your phone off is not good.What you are doing is "avoidance" and it's not good.When you have problem and you avoidance it the problem still remain may be worst.I used to be avoidance person and it's not right.You have to face it or fix it don't avoid it
