  1. I posted this on my blog. If you want the link, message me in private. Thanks! It's 10:35am. I missed the Walk for Wellness I was gonna go to. Now I'm not too sure what I'm going to do for the rest of the day. I'm not sure how to fix this discord I feel inside. All I want to do is cry. This isn't helping, much. It reminded me about my to-do list, which is good. Because with all that's all my mind I'd probably forget about that too. I wonder what she's doing. So busy, alone, she's gonna have a nervous breakdown. At least I still have one other appointment today that I can go to. I recreation group at the hospital. Not sure if I'm going to like it or not. But what else am I gonna do? Stay at home until I feel worse? I can't do this alone. So I have 2 hours until my appointment. I could watch a movie. But what movie?
  2. Collateral Beauty. I cried like a baby. But the pain's still there.
  3. I'm OK! Thanks though. I am receiving ODSP and there are soup kitchens, I just don't want to go.
  4. I read a quote recently, it says "Comparisan is the theif of joy." I think this applies here. I always used to feel so down when I saw people posting group photos of their friends having fun, and I had none to post. That has all changed now, it seems, on Facebook. Funny how things change.
  5. Of course everyone's different. I haven't. But you could google to see if that's a possible side-effect. I'm not sure. Usually drowsiness or dizziness are possible side-effects of medication.
  6. What do you do? I'm having a pretty good day today, because I forced myself out of bed, and also eat breakfast. That helps. I don't have a plan for the rest of the day though. Probably looking for work. What do you do when you're having a good day?... to stay UP!
  7. How does God show his love to you? For me, it's through music.
  8. I think if we focus on the new, we can forget about the old. The old being "our depression." So what's new? For me, this is relatively new, posting on a forum, again. The other thing is that I'm seriously thinking of starting a record label, if I can. Just need the support, because I'm just one person. So far I've gotten the support of two major icons in the region on Twitter.
  9. What do you think will help? Talk therapy? Just letting it pass? Medication? Diet / Exercise? Love? All of the above? Something esle?
  10. You could always try enjoying the mess. Like when your room's a mess, you don't always have to clean it.
  11. What do you do when nothing helps? Are we just supposed to live in misery? I can accept feeling depressed for no reason, but I can't accept feeling depressed even when there's music playing or when you're doing something that's supposed to bring you joy What do you do when nothing helps?
  12. How do you go back to work after a loss of a job and having been unemployed for a long time? I'm quite enjoying my freedom right now. But most of the time I'm depressed. I just thought if I got a job I might feel better, having something to do with my days, but I don't think it will, not unless it's something I enjoy or if it's at least with people I enjoy working with. I got a job the other day but I turned it down again because it just didn't feel right. Sometimes it feels good after leaving an interview, and I never get the job. Other times, I get a job I don't really want. Seems to be the only job I can get. Any advice / thoughts / experiences would be helpful. Thanks!
  13. I really like the new song "What Lovers Do" by Maroon 5. Going to listen to that now.
  14. That's a great question! And a great idea! To have a "Sexuality and Depression" section. You could always post it in "Depression Central" or in this thread if you like.
  15. Most people say they love someone, but never really show it. My mom for example. I usually tell her she doesn't, but she insists she does. There are a couple songs about it. One just came on, it's called "What Lovers Do" by Maroon 5 ("try to do what lovers do") Or More Than Words by Extreme.
  16. Just what Google says: "a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances." I also learned that "Islam is widely considered as the fastest growing religion in Europe due primarily to immigration and above average birth rates." :-P
  17. I think if you LEARNED something today, it's better than any "accomplishment." (in the worldly sense of the word.)
  18. I let the build up of stress get so bad (hanging out with my friends) that now it won't go away. Nothing seems to help. I just feel this pain in my heart, and stress on my face. It'll probably be gone by morning, but I dunno. If anyone is up and wants to chat that might help! Thanks! (It's 4:19am right now)
  19. I believe I'm "depressed" because I avoid fearful or stressful situation - like socializing. Which makes me sad. Sometimes I'm happy to be around other people, other times I'm not. ANYWAY, I just wanted to say that STRESS is the cause of most if not all mental illness. That's what I just remember/realized tonight - after feeling what STRESS really is. My friend is helpful in that way. I just discovered this and I want to yell it to the world haha That's how I feel right now. Now I have anxiety. Build up of ignoring my problems for too long -- being on meds etc. My suggestion to everyone if needed would be to seek a psycholoGIST/therapist/counselor or someone you can really talk to who is HELPFUL in dealing with the problems you're having. Have a good day! I love you!
  20. TLDR; Really sorry about the loss about your friend. It may help to talk about it. But from what I did read, it sounds like STRESS. (having constant "panic attacks" -- always sobbing -- or throwing up.) People throw out terms like "panic attacks" and "depression" and "anxiety" but they don't really understand them. They may understand the feeling, but they don't understand what it is. Some people don't even understand what STRESS feels like, but I think most can understand what it means. My mother would always say "I'm just stressed" or "my nerves are shot" Anyway, I just really wanted to say that STRESS is the cause of most if not all mental illnesses and disorders you think you may have. Just try to relax more often, and I would say avoid stressful situations, (just me) or learn to manage/deal with stress. Sorry for not reading your post but I'll probably come back to it. I hope this helps at least a little though.
  21. You can always try either. But my first reaction was that you don't have to apologize for being a lone wolf! Maybe they were a "lone wolf" too or "too busy" for you <- that's what my family always says. I'm the "lone wolf."
  22. my "friends" sometimes ignore me when I'm feeling bad and want to talk about my problems. Which is really hard. I think my family is sort the same as yours, but their more understanding. Try telling them you feel stressed instead. They may listen and understand than. Most people don't understand "Depression" as I posted in another thread.
