    umm, think positively, think of what is right in your life, what you have acheived, and what you want to acheive, then ask yourself 'is being depreessed really the only way of sorting out this problem?'.

    What kind of depression are we talking about? Feeling a bit blue or suffering from a more serious form of depression?

    If you have actual clinical depression, you need medication or/and counselling. Go see a doctor.

    If it is clinical depression, supressing it may work in the short term,but in my experience it always works out for the worst in the end. Although it may seem harder, facing up to it and trying to get help now will save a lot of effort and upset later.

    That would require a high fat diet or some kind of high pressure gas, how it would help here I don't know...

    I don't think the word should be suppress. I think it should be about facing it and dealing with it.

    What kind of depression are you talking about?

    True. Well said Sarky. Upsetting/painful as it is, getting help now rather than later is the best option. Good luck! Tell us more if you want to; talking helps too, and maybe we've got experience that can help.

    From your 'emulating a good mood' thread
    (Original post by HearTheThunder)
    Ok yeah sounds weird but I seem to do it all the time. Like when you're just in an okay --> slightly depressed mood you can just get yourself into a good mood really easily by just thinking you're in a good mood and 'being' happy... does anyone else do this?
    So you're not really really depressed atm? It's up to you, if you're willing to confront it, or ignore it. By the title of this thread you want to ignore it.

    I guess you need to throw yourself into work/leisure, never give yourself a moment to be depressed. Always be out with people, or maybe do exercise (releases endorphins), lots of academic-work to achieve a goal, then when you're on your own you're too tired to be depressed and maybe one day you'll not be busy and you'll find yourself happy. But then again, that could lead to a nervous breakdown in public, better off confronting it, IMO. Seriously, I hope you feel happier soon. x

    Erm, well I won't go into detail but there isn't really a way of confronting something like this. It's just something that results in problems and I can't change it.

    OK, this will sound weird, but whenever I am depressed for some reason, I usually just act tired and, well, depressed. But here's the scary part, after about an hour of being depressed (and I'm not always sure what about) I get really angry. Just genuinely pissed off, at people who I know have done nothing to upset me, but I just feel angry. And then, after being angry and irritable, it'll all clear up, like nothing ever happened. Depression turns into anger, which then disappears. Wow, this really sounds crazy... I better stop now.
