How can I stop overthinking because of my depression?
I was just thinking about my sweet black abyss…Long story short - i was diagnose with depression almost 2 years ago; i took the treatment for a while…didn’t do miracles at all and i stopped taking meds. I was in a lonely relation with a guy for 3 years (i.m 31 yo) whenever i was all alone i was in a bad mental stage, very bad… Almost 7 months ago i met this guy at work who is my significant other now, a very thoughtful and caring man, who i love and loves me back and we got engaged after 2 months of relation; i had a job for 6 months, i was in a good mental stage good because i didnt have time to overthink anything, just doing my job and when i came home after work i was to tired for overthinking… most of the time i forgot about my depression and i almost feel happines and fulfilment… I quit my job 1 month ago and the depression seems so kick in again… I have a hard time getting out of bed and do stuff around the house, won.t tell you how hard it is to get out of the house and have a life… I.m still almost happy BUT there.s this someting, this feeling of emptiness in my head like i feel numb and somethimes i feel like my happines is fake like a mask. I haven.t told him because he is affraid of my depression coming back…but my depression never went away, was always here in my head…My advice for you even i really really now it.s very hard, try to do something everyday… Get a job if you dont have one, get a new job if you already have one, try to do things that you once love to do, try to find someone who would really listen to you, a friend, lover, shrink, mom, dad someone.. just try! And never give up! It’s hard! I know it really is hard! I, somehow, got to the point where i just can ignore the overthinking… I think i tortured myself too much and i had enough!I waited years for someone to give me a magical advice for all of this to go away and i only realize the magic was in me. I.m the only one who can get me out of this sweet black abyss, no one else…Just try… try to listen more at others needs, try to help, try to focus on something good, maybe you.ll help yourself in the end.
I've suffering with depression for quite a few years. It seems to have started as I turned in to a teenager, I'm 34 now. I feel as though all my troubles are piling up on me. My mother died 3 years ago and that set me back big time. I am now having marriage problems. I seem to get upset really easy. I have terrible moodswings. But then some days I feel great. I find it all very confusing and can't seem to get my head round anything. I can't bring myself round to going to the doctors, I know I will just break down, and I am so nervous about going. Does anyone know of an alternative method to beat depression rather than relying on tablets?
How to deal with Husband's depression?
This is not an all of a sudden situation with him, it has been going on for years. He did have a drug "problem", was using marijuana to relieve stress, but swears that is not the case at this time (though I can't but suspect) He has threatened suicide many times, told our (not together kids but individual) kids that dieing would be better then living with me. Police have removed him once because things were getting out of control. He is wonderful at convincing others he doesn't have a problem and it is only me. Even the last psychiatrist he saw who also said he doesn't have a problem with the marijuana!! We tried marriage counseling and his own therapy but neither worked. I have hopes with this new one, but afraid at the same time, that he will manipulate his way through it, and be convincing it is my fault. Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't him, maybe it's me. By the way, I work with mentally handicapped people and am great at what I do, so why can't I seem to get anywhere with him?
I hate myself with a passion....?
I have been severely depressed and I hate myself because I've been verbally bullied for 5 years ( from 6th grade- this year). Literally everyday I get picked on, talked about or laughed at. Kids who don't even know me talk about me and laugh at me at school. In all of my 7 classes, at least 5 or 6 people have ridiculed me, laughed at me, or talked about me a few or several times. I have been verbally bullied by at least 60 people in junior high and high school. I've even been bullied by some of my former teachers. I've told my teachers, guidence counselors, and the principal but they have not done anything to stop the bullying or harassment. My parents sometimes make fun of me, insult, swear, yell, or scream at me. Nobody treats me with any respect or care that I'm constantly tormented or extremely miserable everyday. All of this verbal bullying has turned me into a sadistic, malicious sociopath. I want to become a verbal bully. All I think about is wanting to ridicule, laugh at,humiliate, and talk about innocent people. My goal in life is to make several people's lives a living hell. I love damaging other people's self-esteem nad making them cry. I love to have control over people mentally and emotionally. I love making people feel depressed and worthless. I've recently started cyberbullying a few people on the internet. I don't feel sorry or sad for people who killed themselves because they were bullied constantly. I laugh when I hear stories like that because of how weak and pathetic they are. They killled themselves because they weren't special. They were lowlifes who deserved to be bullied. I would have bullied them too if they had went to my school. So whoever I verbally bully, I hope it gets to a point where my bullying caused them to be severely depressed and they decide to self-harm themselves. And eventuallly I hope they kill themselves. Like I said, I won't feel any grief or remorse. I'll just laugh at them harder because they're weak, pathetic, and probably burning in hell then I will find another victim to emotionally torment. If someone committed suicide because I had ridiculed them, laughed at them, or talked about them I would feel extremely happy, powerful, and proud because I had made someone that miserable.
I think I have depression...how can I tell my parents ?
I sympathise, it sounds like you're going through a horrible time. It definitely sounds like a textbook case of depression - when I was your age, I was similar, but wasn't actually diagnosed with depression until I was 18 (I'm 23 now). I was dismissed by my doctor as having normal teenage blues, and I'm angry about that to this day because even then I knew what I was feeling was not normal. If you can't tell your mom, how about showing her this page, or else writing her a letter?Or, how about talking to one of your teachers? They can help you decide how to tell your parents. Either way, your parents need to know, and can help you through this time. You need to see a doctor. I didn't want to take any meds either, but eventually had to. Counselling works for some people, meds work for others, and some people use both. I take antidepressants and see a psychiatrist on a fairly regular basis. I was set against meds, and initially refused, but it was genuinely the best thing I've ever done. I mean that. It's important to see what you have (if it is indeed depression) as a sort of illness - think of it as being like diabetes. You would need medication to keep that under control, and depression is no different. Take care of yourself, and feel free to email me if you want. I hope it all goes well for you.
