    Ah i see. Depression is for sure different for everyone. I guess i should be thankful that my only real spell lasted 2 months, and thankfully i havent experienced it again although im prepared to do so shall the demons decide to take over.

    @drizzt i hope for the best man, i know saying meaningless shit like "stay positive" is futile but thats all we can really do.

    It's not meaningless when people say to stay positive. As someone that has overcome depression I used to use the whole, "it's not that simple," spiel to justify the way I felt all the time but I came to a realisation that it actually is that simple. Just hear me out. Simple doesn't mean easy. Chess is a simple enough game to learn but that doesn't mean it's easy to beat a grandmaster. The key really is just thinking positive, it's just hard. Whenever you think negative thoughts you just need to find a way to shut them down. When you think positive thoughts instead of shutting them down with negative ones just let them spin around a bit, embrace it a little. Over time it works. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad, you need some balance as you don't want to be totally full of yourself and inconsiderate of others but thinking positive and just telling yourself positive things really is a good way to get better. Maybe the only way. That doesn't mean it's easy.

    I found a comment I wrote in the comment box on this thread that was saved from over a year ago but I didn't post it. It was nutritional advice on what to take if you suffer from severe depression. I might not be useful now so I'll delete it.

    I don't know where most of you live but the problems I've faced that have caused depression would have been dealt with almost instantly if I lived in America.

    I'm Australian and I think you'll find depression is pretty universal.

    I wish it would just stop like some of you guys. It never goes away...Im a mess. sorry

    edit - I do things like drink to make it stop. Its just makes it worse, but I dont learn.

    just a few days to feel like everything is right...but its not

    edit 2 - im sure you all have read about how I like to carry and sleep with a weapon. When I get drunk...I start challenging everyone to fights. Not to show how badass I am...Im hoping that that person will kill me. Not fist fights...

    Yes...im branded 5150. according to the law im a walking, talking, mental nightmare.

    It's hard with low willpower but it gets easier over time. Just keep trying and don't be too hard on yourself when it's not working. Stick with it even if it feels pointless. It's like digging a tunnel. You never think you'll get to the other side but then you see daylight, you just gotta keep digging in the right direction

    Make jokes all u want but sometimes that temporary fix is all you need. Of course it makes things worse in the long run but sometimes you don't even think about it. You just want something to feel better for the moment. That's exactly why i have a love hate relationship with weed. It helps me to just let go of all the bullshit and just enjoy my life but the next morning everything comes right back. Am I saying that what I do is right? Hell no but sometimes that's all you need to get out of your head even if it's only for a short while.
  • angelpalmangelpalm Stop enjoying things Joined: Posts: 23,594 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Naw man that shit is poison man. When you are down like that you gotta really look at what you are putting into your body these days because all that has a real tangible effect on you. Whether it's liquor or fucking fast food. Just that shit right there will dampen your spirits. Fucking pill makers got people trying to solve the wrong puzzles in the first place wondering why they want to blow their brains out in shit.

    I know I'm full of analogies but speaking from personal experience you might want to listen to this one. Drinking is a bandaid but just because you can't see the blood doesn't mean you're not still bleeding. That sort of shit needs stitches, it wont just fix itself because you get drunk. By drinking you're just delaying the inevitable that you're going to need to confront it, the problem is though that just because you're drunk doesn't mean it's not still on your mind. I can't count the amount of ridiculous, stupid, regrettable shit I've done drinking while depressed. I have countless stories of bad experiences with work, girls and more because I've decided to get pissed when I haven't been in the state of mind to handle it. It's also crazy the amount of people that commit suicide while drunk as drinking lowers your inhibitions which are sometimes all that's keeping someone super depressed from blowing their brains out. The point of all this is don't drink to solve your problems. If it's too much to handle lose yourself in a few albums with some headphones on in the dark or run until you can't think about anything except pushing your body to keep running. Play video games. You can't distract yourself forever but if you're really in that much of a pinch that you need to shut it off, do something other than get drunk, believe me, it's not the answer and this is coming from someone that loves a good drink.

    I say this you probably will use weed and alcohol as means until you get stuff like cocaine or heroin

    What should you do?

    I don't know spend time with your kids

    Get into a drug rehab program and dry out so you can think clearly

    Booger may think this is funny but its not. He's similar to my mom. He cant or he just refuses to believe that people like me actually exist.

    I know drinking just makes it worse in the end. I do it just for what nikeSBstunna89 said. Just that short time of feeling like its ok. Just like him, the next morning things feel even worse. So, do I drink more or just try to deal with? Depends on if I have money.

    I honestly think that my mom refuses to believe that I suffer mental issues because she takes it as a sign that she was a bad parent. Thats far from true. Did she play a part in how I am today? Sure. Her, my bio mom, her girlfriends, me...we all had a part in it.

    Edit - I will never even try hard drugs like cocaine and heroin. My bio mom was a heroin junky. My dad was her john. Everyone says she didn't use when she was pregnant with me. I don't think that's true.

    So I've been at a low point these past few days with my dating attempts and me feeling my depression is driving my friends away (it hasn't, but the constant complaining has to stop and I'm making an effort to be more compassionate with myself and more grateful for the relationships I have while truly embracing my singledom and figuring why I'm so needy for intimacy when I know I don't need a relationship to be happy).

    Today, a friend of mine learned her ex had finally moved on (they're roommates on campus and she witnessed them buying her condoms) and was quite at a low point about it. Her and her ex did end things up on good terms and the latter really looks out for her, so they have a good relationship. However, my friend was still hurt about it but is trying to move on, and us talking about our past experiences with love, rejection, heartbreak and unrequited love was very nice. Not just because I had someone to talk to, but because I was actually helping and hearing someone out for once and not ranting about myself. It felt good giving someone my time and lending them an ear and not being stuck on myself.

    Last night, I reached out to a friend who tonight arranged a sparring practice specificially for me - to fight six people in a row for 30 seconds each, two rounds. Though I personally wasn't impressed with myself, everyone cheered me on and expressed how impressed they were. My friend told me that being a purple belt, my sparring capabilities were at the levels of a white to yellow belt (I will say it's due to my hiatus and frustrations with my abilities and thus "quitting" sparring"), but that it was okay because him being a black belt, his coach considered him his sparring abilities to be of the green to blue levels. Adding to that, he said while he wasn't impressed during 1v1 matches, he was impressed by the "guts" I displayed when taking on six people. Tonight actually made me feel very good about myself and as if I'm capable of becoming something.

    I do normally just ignore Booger. But he really doesnt need to come troll a thread like this. Its not fun or funny.

    How am i trolling? That is why alcohol and weed are bad. The buzz wears off and you go to harder drugs.

    If you are so afraid for your safety go check into any hospital and say you are going to kill yourself

    Staying online clamoring for attention nets you nothing.

    If you really care for your kids you get yourself in a hospital asap

    Otherwise go ahead and continue to just bitch and whine and talk about how hard you are when nobody cares

    Find help, because despite what you may think kids need their dad

    This might be hard to accept, but most everybody has mental health problems. I see a therapists for my issues. You seem to have chemical dependency issues based on your post history.

    But shit ask your friend or even your friend's mom to take you to the hospital

    You are hurting your family more than you know

    Suck some dicks to pay the hospital bill if you have to
  • FrostyAUFrostyAU Lynx in your sinks Joined: Posts: 8,113
    You know not everyone pays hospital bills right? Hospital is free here and you don't need insurance for it either. It's actually like that in most of the developed world outside of America. You project a lot Boog but really man Drizzt is right. Trolling and SRK go hand in hand, it's part of the culture of the FGC to give people shit but there's also a time and a place for it and a thread like this isn't the place man. Some people need to complain, if it's just whining to you don't listen but threads like this are EXACTLY for that point as it helps to get shit off your chest sometimes. Others try give advice because they're decent people, you on the other hand are just an ass.

    Seeing a new therapist next week. I miss my old one but she moved and I promised her I'd see her replacement a few times just to see if she's a good fit. I hope it goes well.

    Finding a good fit is the hardest part of talking to a professional

    Kaiser has shitty therapist

    If he thinks me saying "go to the hospital and say you will kill yourself" is trolling that is his deal

    Him saying that here does nothing, don't know why we even had discussion about using alcohol and weed to numb it

    He should go to the hospital

    Ive tried AA but I just cant get with all that "jesus will save us" kinda shit. I'm not religious so I don't like it. I had a really good counselor but not anymore. I try to talk to my mom, but she don't give a fuck. So I come here and spout my shit. Just reading it makes me feel a little better.

    There's other shit you can do man. Join a amateur sports team, go to the gym, go play Magic cards or rock up to LAN events like FGC stuff. It doesn't matter what you do really as long as there are other people there. Don't go in there like they're counsellors because they're not man but just being around others doing something other than yourself can be good.

    Its hard to get motivated. Lately my best release is playing fighting games on fightcade. Its fun and completely distracts me. But it only last so long. I work out every morning. I really do try to keep myself distracted but sometimes nothing works and I...go down hill.

    I get what your saying. Its just a lot harder done than said most times.

    The fact that people think this reply is a joke is really telling.

    Drizzt how bad is your drinking bro? Do your hands shake when you are sober? Serious question. Alcohol can be fucking fatal is why I am asking. If you can just ween yourself off of it a little at a time and try and replace it with something else that makes you feel good like some healthy food. Start drinking a shit load more water. Eat a lot less sugar.

    Also don' work out too much man. Take it easy on the stressful shit when you are trying to transition your lifestyle.

    My whole body shakes when I stop drinking. I sweat, I get sick...even though I may not actually have a hangover it always feels like I have a super hangover. I will drink a lot. I'll buy that gallon jug of jack daniels and finish it off in one night. I'm a very sever alcoholic.

    You might need a drastic lifestyle change.
    I'm not you, but as an example, who I am now is a lot different than who I was 5 years ago. Big reason was I dropped my partying, doing drugs, and being surrounded by people that only supported my habits. I haven't drank in 3 years now.

    Now I'm focused more than I have been in 10 years of fucking off, and feel like I have genuine ambitions and obtainable goals. That mentality doesn't happen when your in a pattern that has getting shit faced included.

    I'm not trying to toot my own horn, I'm just saying that you need to do some soul searching when your off the sauce and find out what you need to do to get on track. I don't know your situation and maybe you are in far worse shape than I was ever. But I know others that burned bridges, dropped a lot of habits and focused on things that gets the heart going with out the use of substance.
    Good luck

    Aren't you a vet? You should see a VA addiction rep if so. Also, they have pills that prevent alcohol cravings, might want to ask a doctor about them.

    Sorry for the late response, I forgot that I even posted here. The advice was high dosages of pure "medical grade" cod liver oil, it really helps. I think the purest brand on the market is omacor.

    What do SRK?

    This is stupid you need to see a doctor

    Chemical dependency is as much physical as it is emotional

    Fighting addiction alone is not healthy, also your environment is not conducive to your recovery. I think you said you relapsed due to stress.

    There is non-jesus aa, and it is called going to a mental health and seeing your doctor.

    You are pretty much poisoning yourself

    Get help

    Be a man. Are you working? Do you have insurance? Seek counseling and continue to work hard

    It is easy to fall into the abyss of self loathing, working hard is your best bet to escape it
