Medication is not the answer. You possibly are bored with your self. Try doing something different from your normal daily life. Trying something different & meeting new good people can hopefully cheer you up. If not that then try fixing past relationships that might not have ended up well. Females for example. Such as asking forgiveness for things of the past. I know i felt better after. Peace
I had a similar issue. Was down for so long I couldn't remember what it was like to feel normal about things. You have to seek help ... there are tools you can use to get a hold of things and there is medication to help you get straight. Letting go of my pride and getting help absolutely changed my life. Do it.
We all feel depressed from time to time. Would it be helpful to go talk to a councilor? That way by talking u can resolve some things. You'd be surprised what is revealed by talking it out. I suggest u do that and if the therapist thinks you would benefit from medication don't hesitate to take it. I've been thru both and it really U's helpful. Give it time too. Nothing is solved overnite. Best of luck to you...;)
Ongoing depression is a sign of a chemical imbalance in your brain. Increased exercise can sometimes help to rebalance these chemicals, when a body is healthier it fixes itself faster. Medication is also an excellent option and has given many people their lives back. Many people don't feel comfortable telling their doctors about ongoing depression for fear of being shoved off to a therapist. That isn't how it works. Doctors understand what causes ongoing depression and see the chemical imbalance in the same way they see a broken limb, something physically wrong that needs to be fixed.
Have you tried keeping a gratitude journal? at night before you go to bed write three things down that you are thankful for, and rate the day on a scale of 1-10. Review once a week. Try it for at least a month to see if there are some improvements. Best of luck in the battle that you are fighting.
One of the best ways to forget your own problems, even very real & serious ones, is to reach out to other people and help them with their problems! Works everytime, as u begin to forget ur own issues. As an added bonus, theres always someone to talk to, plus u feel like u have accomplished something worthwhile :)
Remember, only God can unfold a rosebud. When we try to ?ndole The rose of our life, it does as would a natural rose: The petals fall off until Theres no Rose at all--just thorns.
A therapist can be that non judgmental 3rd party that helps you get out from under this black cloud. Really! Just having that lifeline can really make such a difference. Make the call and get an appointment. Real help is a phone call away!
I understand and I am going through the same thing unfortunately. But I have been doing this midwest program, attacking anxiety and depression. I have found that when I do the program like I should it helps. I messed up and stopped the program for a little while so I am actually starting over today. I have tried other methods and really like this one. Praying also helps to keep me grounded. Things are tough in life but we have to try desperately to focus on the good things. Look up www.stresscenter.com I hope this helps :) keep your head up!
