  1. Welcome new friend to our forum family. Our goal is to not leave anyone behind in their dark depression cave. Personally I experience depression as a natural formation/resource. I take note of your use of descriptive metaphors. I believe clever and powerful metaphors can be very helpful in dealing with Old Man Depression. Anyway, make yourself at home and check out other posts. We are here to listen and help. Oscar
  2. Welcome new friend to our forum family. I can definitely relate to your situation. My experience reveals the metaphorical nature of depression. To me depression is a natural formation/resource. I invoke a cave metaphor to strategize a way out of depression. If you're interested I can go into more detail. Make yourself at home on our awesome forum and check out some other posts for meaningful support and insights. Oscar
  3. The past is a very vexing problem for all of us. I believe it can be a solvable problem. The metaphorical depression cave has deep pits perfectly suited to consign the useless past. I try to pile heavy, bold boulders on bad memories. I must be stronger than my past. I must move forward.
  4. If you keep trying you will find out why. Don't despair, we are always here for support. Wall off Old Man Depression from your troubled existence. Smile and smile a little more. Oscar
  5. I'll gladly lend to you my giant metaphorical scissors to cut the chains of excess emotional baggage holding you back from your FUNctional destiny. Heck you probably have an inexhaustible tool box of powerful and cleverful metaphors to strategize solutions to every problem. Nothing stops us from playing some tricky tricks right back to Old Man Depression. Oscar
  6. This forum is definitely a great place to vent. Venting is a first step toward being more or less FUNctional. My experience with depression reveals the metaphorical nature of it. I believe depression is a natural formation/resource. If we can recognize this metaphorical nature of depression then we stand a better chance of dealing with it. We are here for you in your struggle with this troubling existence. My motto is: Despair not -REPAIR a lot. Oscar
  7. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We hope you can find support and meaningful insights here. Make yourself at home and check out some other posts. Problems really do have solutions so despair not. Oscar
  8. I read your post and took note of your rut and canyon metaphors. My experience with depression reveals the metaphorical nature of depression. I believe depression is a natural formation/RESOURCE. I invoke a cave metaphor for depression which is similar to a canyon. In nature a cave is formed by erosion, stress, and upheaval. The idea is to be clever with powerful metaphors to strategize a way out of the depression trap. If you're in a metaphorical canyon then obviously you need to metaphorically climb up and out. And climbing is so much easier when we let go of excess emotional baggage. The canyon can be a useful place to dump said emotional baggage. I try to bury excess emotional baggage with my unlimited supply of bold metaphorical boulders. Old Man Depression plays havoc with our psyches and we really need to play the most clever tricks right back. Powerful and "cleverful" metaphors to me are my best bets dealing with depression. Oscar
  9. I definitely have memories that are not worth dwelling on. Rather than erase them I try to consign them into my depression cave. My metaphorical depression cave is vast and deep and of course dangerous. I promise myself that these bad memories will not take over my outlook. Sometimes I invoke metaphorical boulders to crush the worthless thoughts and memories. The idea is to be as clever as possible with powerful metaphors. Sounds easy but it does take commitment and serious work. It can be a labor of love for oneself. Self-MEDaphoricate! Oscar
  10. Welcome new friend to our forum family. We all have unique perspectives on depression and anxiety. I take note of your use of the "darkest thoughts" description of depression . I invoke a deep, dark, dangerous cave metaphor to strategize my experience with depression. I see depression as a natural formation/resource. I constantly try to "anchor" myself outside the depression abyss . I have learned how powerful and clever metaphors can be helpful and therapeutic. I hope your experience with us will be beneficial. Keep posting your concerns and check out some other posts for support and meaningful insights.
  11. Very glad to have you as a new member. I can't comment on antidepressants because I never used them. I invoke metaphors to strategize a way out of the deep, dark, dangerous, depression cave. I find clever and powerful metaphors to work effectively with Old Man Depression. Looking forward to your posts and insights. Oscar
  12. It really pains me to read so much negativity. Life is awful but it also precious. Old Man Depression plays the most insidious and devious tricks on our psyches. So suit up and play the most clever, powerful and trickier tricks right back. I'll lend you all my metaphorical arsenal and tool box of weapons and heavy-duty tools to squish and squash O.M.D. What can be more challenging and exciting than defeating Old Man Depression? C'mon smile you guys and gals. Oscar
  13. E has some great insight. I would just add another trick that might be helpful. Bad experiences can be metaphorically dumped into the depression cave and covered with heavy metaphorical boulders. The idea that I repeatedly push is to be clever with powerful metaphors. I like to say: Despair Not - REPAIR A Lot.
  14. I woke up early this morning about the time of your post. I was thinking we haven't heard from you in awhile and I should check up on you. In my humble and highly uneducated opinion you need to open your metaphorical tool box and your MEDaphorical medicine cabinet. Within you will find unlimited resources. Also, climb aboard the A train and travel uptown to the City Hall of Poetic INjustice and renew your Poetic License to K.I.L.L. every last metaphorical demon haunting your troubled existence. You can't and shouldn't fill the void. Put the empty, dangerous, desolate, dark, vexing void to use. Metaphors can disguise all problems and "Disguise" the Limit. Anyway my new motto is: Don't Despair - REPAIR! Oscar
