People are over rated, I don't see humans for days on end sometimes, I really couldn't care less.
really? when i'm deprived of contact, i crave it. i struggle to stay sane if i'm left alone.

I had a really bad morning at work. Basically they told me I should take some time out to get myself sorted out. I was fine until they said Mike had told them I've got some problems and that they're all there to talk if I want to. Then Michelle said that she's known I haven't been happy for a few months now and that was it. Started crying. Feel like a ****.
Ugh I hate conversations like that...They are only trying to help, but still, it can make you feel really awkward.
Do you think your gonna take their offer of taking some time out?

Does anyone else find that advice on depression doesn't really work for them? For example, if you look in the H&R section and somebody has posted a thread because they are feeling depressed, people always reply along the lines of
-"just go to your GP, they can put you on medication and refer you to a counsellor and you'll start to get better"
- "make sure you are eating really healthily, doing regular exercise, not drinking or taking drugs, and getting enough sleep"
-"make the effort to go out and socialise, get involved in activities, and keep yourself busy"
-"talk to your friends, family, and teachers and things will get easier"

Well I've done all that, I was eating healthy, exercising, and being social before I became depressed, I've never taken recreational drugs and I rarely drink, I've made the effort to continue with that during my depression, I've gone to my GP, been on antidepressants (although I have only been on one type, and there is a chance that others may help), been referred to a counsellor who I have been seeing for about 6 months, my friends and family know whats going on and try to support me, I've talked to my college so my teachers know what's going on and I've been allowed to drop two a levels to reduce the stress I am under. I do all the things you are supposed to do, and it doesn't work.

Does anyone else feel the same way?

Firstly, congrats for doing all these things, it's all too easy to slip into not wanting to go out and get involved, and then become introverted and just want to curl up :p:
Perhaps going to your doctor to change the medication might work, or even going to see a shrink. Yeah, it can be scary, but mine's such a lovely dude and he knows so much more about meds than my GP does.
Really, I'm sorry it's not getting any better, but it will come with time, I promise :hugs:
Sorry this is short, taking Bruce for a pizza now :cool:

:hugs: again, Jess

Wow I got a big shock today, I haven't used myspace for a long long time but received a message on there from someone i mailed back over a year ago after we drifted apart, he was a very important friend to me and was an ex of mine that i truthfull still have some feelings for, and it broke me down to tears because he wants to get back in touch because the last time we spoke we fell out and weren't on best terms. but now I know he's in a relationship and has a child with her but i still feel for him, i wrote back but i'm really concerned that things are gonna hit the walls again I dont want them too though

Oops I forgot to mention I already see a psychiatrist too. He was the one who put me on the medication, and I see him every month or so. I'm coming off my current medication because it's not doing any good, so once I've been completley off them for a while, I might try another type.
Thanks for the reply

Does anyone else find it difficult to express their emotions when they are around people (but really need to?) and find it difficult to engage with the present situation? Could this be a sign of depression or something else?

How did you all find your psychiatrist's by the way? Was it through uni/ college? Or is it private/ NHS?

Do you ever feel so depressed that you know it's got to be clinical? Because there is nothing else going on that should warrant such a low feeling. And you have no motivation for anything. You try to read an article for an essay and you look at the words and they mean nothing.

What can one do in such a situation?

:console: Have you spoken to a doctor at all recently? I know you're keen to avoid anti-depressants if at all possible, but if you've exhausted every other option, it might be worth giving it a go.

I hope things get better for you soon. :hugs:

Remember when you mentioned CBT to me? I later made an appointment with my doc and he's put me on the list. I really hope it can help me. Some days I don't even get out of bed I don't even go out of the house for weeks. If people invite me to parties or for drinks my heart wants to go but my depression makes me feel lathagic about it and ask myself "what's the point? it's too much effort".

I hate feeling like this I feel isolated.
