How do you handle depression

Report as

Depression is a funny animal, it is overwhelming and takes total control over your life, it makes you unable to even stand up straight without leaning against the wall, when it becomes so bad you need to seek the advice of a Dr. and be diagnosed, there are excellent meds out there that can help you overcome this and find balance in your life and feel better, and this feeling of hopelessness can and will go away, it also should be balanced with an effective form of therapy...

They can't. They are depressed. It takes away that ability.

You can, I once was depressed (Hard to believe) I then realized there are things in life I should be happy for. But that is just me, so I am not saying you are wrong, you could be right.

Tic tac is right, your perception little bambino is through rose colored glasses, you should not comment on something so serious with a frivolous approach...

I break things when i feel like crap. Or light them on fire. Or blow them up. And you see kids, sometimes violence IS the answer!

I surround myself with family and friends. The key for me is to keep myself busy and not be alone. I got a dog which helped for a long time, but I didn't have enough time to devote to him so I couldn't keep him.

I think you should see a doctor or therapist eventually. It's hard to handle depression without professional help. Good luck :)

I've struggled with depression my whole life. You know what I've learned? Do the opposite of what your mind is telling you. You're depressed and you want to stay in bed all day? GET UP and go somewhere fun! You feel like you're going to cry? Call your best friend and get them to come over and watch a hilarious movie with you! It's still a daily struggle for me and sometimes I give in to the depression, but I always feel better about things when I don't give in. If your depression persists or gets worse, talk to your doctor about it. Really, it won't just magically go away on it's own.

Couldn't agree more , it's hard to do those things when feeling down in the dumps but it has to be done.

Oh, it's amazingly hard!

If it is chronic , then you need to research depression. There are many different ways to ease the pain of depression , find what will help you. A balanced diet , yoga/workout , a positive mind set , helping others are a few things I can think of. When you are tired of feeling worthless everyday then you will do some serious research to get help.

Try exercising, (if you can contour up an ounce of motivation) it raises your levels of serotonin. Low serotonin is what makes people depressed. Try, please :(

landin, I have never really had serious depression, but I have a tennis student that has, and is recovered!! he talked to me about this, often. he told me he got to the point where he had to get help. he sort of made it a hobby, a life search to find the answers and more important; a cure that would work for him. apparently, he did. today he is fine. it's awesome. he started by talking to his guidance counselor at his high school who put him in touch with a mental health professional and his contacts ever broadened. he got involved with a group where they all shared their stories of struggles and triumphs. he slowly began to heal. the sunlight looked a little brighter, mornings held a little more promise. you get the idea!!! there are a whole lot of people who want this for you! I am one...:-)

I get depressed alot. I try to think about ALL of the good things about my life and work hard to fix the things I don't like. All but your social life you have the power to fix by yourself. And if you can't fix your social life, buy CATS.

I workout, go ride my bike, mess with my cat and then drink some beer or a good wine.
