Depression bros get in here
What are things you do to cope?
>sit in shower and let water rush over me
I masturbate furiously until my right testicle explodes
drink until I feel sick then spend the next day so hungover I cant think about anything but how hungover I am, then drink the day after to the same degree. Hard to concentrate on anything other than feeling sick and in pain = lack of attention to depression
bipolarfag here, just killing time watching movies/vice smoking i know in my mind it will be over soon it might take a while, i have moments where i feel like utter utter shit goodluck to all depressed bro's here
got that shit on white vinyl, s'fantastic
I heard being bipolar is like, having periods where you are ontop of the world and then just crashing. See Charles Mansons opening in Beware by DeathGrips.
We already toughened up, it doesn't go away, this is our lives.
I've been taking phenibut, I can't believe this shit is legal
It's highly addictive though
>tfw no gf
>tfw no friends
>tfw 23 year old virgin
>tfw small dick
I drink myself asleep
Walking, many miles a day if I can. If no time, I use a treadmill for 30 minutes while watching TV or listening to music. Seriously better than Prozac. Also, writing down any frustrations, insights or indeed anything that occurs to me might be helpful to review later.
Depression now manageable. Can actually sustain a few relationships and hold down a job at last.
Yeah check out Elves Depressedly-Holo Pleasures
I feel yah mate
Not sure if joking or not. But cutting yourself is really faggy man
i distract myself doing basically anything. my favorite distractions
-being social talking about my problems (honesty about my weaknesses is great way to connect to people and make strong friendships)
- partying drinking a lot and sometimes doing drugs
- spending hours on internet when can't find friends to hang with
I participate in action sports (mountain biking, motocross, canyon racing). When the adrenaline starts pumping I feel something. Other than that my feelings are non-existent. I don't feel any connection to my friends, family, or partners. I appreciate them and do my best to express emotions they show me but it's all false in reality. And at the end of the day I take a shower, turn the water to maximum heat and just let the water pour over me for a bit and think about why I can't genuinely connect with people
Try to spend as much time talking to or with the one person in this world that makes me forget about all the bad shit...the one woman who will give me moderate amounts of affection and actually make me feel loved and wanted even if we've never gone all the way together....she is my world, making her happy is enough to make me happy...
>/end depressed betafag rant
loads of weed
lots of meds
watch my mind slowly decay into madness
if you can't love yourself i guess thats it
gaba agonist developed by the russians in the 70's
It removes negative thoughts and allows me to think clearly. At higher doses it mimics molly to a degree.
it really depends on the person though i don't get it so extreme as some people do, i can feel extremely energetic over positive, and maybe a bit delusional in my head sometimes, others i heard have it way worse (called manic) , old name is manic-depressed so yea.
you basically just capture a hour or more of your thought 'log' on paper and then read it back to yourself making comments about it as if you didn't write it
makes everything much clearer
I don't know how I even manage to go on.
I feel like going fucking senile though, anyone else feeling like this?
Not being able to sleep => waking up 7-8 times per night, cold sweat => can't even remember stuff from.. hell.. yesterday.. letalone from a few weeks ago..
people don't understand why I never call them and get pissed. I don't blame them.
Efexor taker here too. This shit is fucking good. Helped me get my life together. I'm completely addicted though. I can't get from 150to75mg per day without feeling like shit and wanting to cry like a retard.
and yea it kinda is like you feel (too) good for a long time and then you inevitably crash, although theres lots of ways to deal with it.
in my case its often because of impulsive excessive alchohol/drug use
Been taking Effexor for 15 years. It works for me and has few sexual side effects. the bad news is if you try to come off it. I get flu-like symptoms, panic attacks, crying. Some people get shock-like feelings in their head from withdrawal, but I've never had that.
Im not trying anything, I though I was depressed once then I started going to the gym and eating better, turned out I was just a sad ass and needed to feel better about myself, through self improvement I found a better outlook on life and more respect for myself. You are not a damaged little angle for being depressed, you are just pathetic sad emo kids looking for attention, there are a million ways to get over feeling sad... One way is to kill yourself.
I used to be depressed as fuck. Here's what you need to do
>Get out of the house
>Talk to people. Reconnect with friends
>Get up and go to bed early, at the same time each night
>Get off of the Internet
It's really that fucking simple. If you have access to a shower you have absolutely no excuse to be depressed. You probably have a great life and you're the only one to blame for your problems.
It is what it is and what it is it ain't
I'm hoping so but from a young age I've lacked empathy. Been to a fair share of funerals, close relatives and close friends. I knew I was supposed to be sad but internally I felt indifferent. Seeing other people choking up over situations like that is beyond me
I'll have to read in to never had the thought cross my mind
Can anyone relate to this? I'm having a hard time connecting to anyone but my girlfriend and one other dude who, to be honest, is more of a drug connection than anything else.
Dont tell yourself that, itll make it suck even worse when you realize its bullshit
Everytime one of my friends tells me this, its worse than any insult someone can give me. I dont understand how its so easy for some people to attract other people
>Listen to music after gf fucked me over.
It helps, alot. Also getting a job.
>Punch the drywall in my house, making huge holes
>Smash things on the ground, sometimes things that I need or was very dear to me (I once smashed my monitor with a baseball bat
>Break things in general
>Browse this site for endless hours
>Create an alternative life in my head in which I'm happy, successful and have a great relationship with my family and a variety of friends and social acquaintances
you don't get how depression works you fucking retard. although you make some OBVIOUS points you don't seem to understand real depression
>feeling pretty down
You, faggot are the latter.
YOU are the master of your life. Your subconscious mind is like a 2 year old. It believes everything you tell it.
So when you say to yourself "i'm fat, i'm ugly, i'm stupid" it is like saying that to a 2 year old and they will believe it.
So when you feel down tell yourself "I am awesome. I am doing well. I am a great person" and slowly you will start to believe it and before long you will start to turn your life around.
Sleep. Eat. Video games.
I've got a shitty part time retail job. I don't drive. I still live at home. I'm overweight.
I managed to get a boyfriend and he's great but all the other things are really bothersome. I'm so incredibly unhappy. There are so many things I want to in life. I want to run my own business but the couple times i've tried selling no one buys shit. I really want to move out but theres no way im qualified for fucking anything above stocking shelves. The only thing im decent at is drawing and that gets you fucking no where in life.
i always see people being depressed about not having girlfriends or whatever. i have a boyfriend and everything else is fucking godawful for me. having a relationship doesnt make you happy
I do that I'll daydream friendships with people and have conversations with them in my head then when I see them I'll act like those things atualy happened and talk to them about things I pretended to talk to them about in my head... Most of them stop talking to me after that
I don't understand either... But you know... If I don't tell myself this, I just feel like shit. It's probably naive, but I don't care. I have to believe in this. I have to believe that soon I may feel happy. Because someone, somewhere will love me and only me, and I will be special for someone.
Easier said than done. I am not a gym rat or anything, but I still keep myself in good shape. I mountain bike, my job is a lot of heavy lifting, I eat well, and have healthy sleeping habits. I have a large amount of hobbies that I enjoy that get me outside to sweat and keep my mind active. I don't seek attention at all. Nobody I know IRL would ever guess I have depression because I'm great at expressing false emotions for the proper times. But when it comes down to it I feel alone and empty despite having a life that I know is good and continuously getting better
Agree. Relationships are no miracle cure. Chances are you'll make your partner miserable as well because he/she will be constantly trying to help you.. which is pretty much like pouring their energy down the fucking drain.
So either noone gives a fuck or noone has a similar problem? I'm skinny as fuck, look like a corpse and well fuck it. My coping mechanism? Addiction. Although I still manage to switch my addictions frequently.. but I always need to have at least one.
You know, if that situation was reversed and you were forever alone youd probably sacrifice all that for chance to know what its like to have someone like you. If you are a gril you wont truly know what its like to be alone unless youre like 400lbs
One day you will get a gf and she will shit on you so viciously youll will know for sure that no one will only ever love you and only you
when I get depressed I shoot myself in the head. works every time.
Fuck man, this is me in a nutshell.
>I appreciate them and do my best to express emotions they show me, but its all fake.
Why is it this way?
im like 260. im pretty well versed in the ways of people not being romantically interested in me. it's a miracle that it even happened, but it's not making my life perfect and happy
porn and masturbation help.
also, i run on the treadmill while listening to ballads of the russian red army choir. pretty heart pounding stuff.
also, ive been getting into cooking. something about creating something i guess that helps mellow me out
Fuck beyond me. If I knew I'd share the secret. Sometimes I believe it's better this because you get to know yourself and what you want and aren't distracted by the needs of others. It is selfish yes but putting up the front can be tiresome. I find that I enjoy my alone time doing things I desire is way more rewarding than going out to party with friends or getting caught up in a great girl. But what frustrates me is that I can't enjoy partying with friends or getting caught up in a girl
young fag its not you its them
>here in the middle east we know that some of us don't have emotions and we tell those people it dosent matter
The things I do to maintain mental stability (or at least something close to it)
>listening to music, mostly Chet Baker, Bill Evans, Chopin, Schubert, Rachmaninoff ..
when I feel the need to calm myself down or simply want to let emotions out which is mostly everyday the case
>fantasizing about things being different and being happy
>reading Schopenhauer, Pestalozzi, Nietzsche and Kant for private research
>refusing alcohol abuse, also not smoking or taking any meds since I still have control over myself
>playing the piano
Well... I hope so... At least most of you guys either can say you have an ex, or that for some other legitimate reason (some disorder, financial problems, work, time, NEET status, etc) you don't have a gf. I don't even get that.
I have minor problems too, like I have to worry about classes next semester, but for example, in that case, I'm in school for personal development now, I already have a solid job and my degree won't really help me very much as far as that goes.
How do people find it so easy to attract other people. ;_;
I just dont understand it, my family and friends really seem to love me and care about me, but i just feel complete indifference to them.
Its like my last girlfriend, really loved me but i just didn't feel it, then she left and it was like she'd never been in my life.
I wanna experience that closeness but i dont think i can.
>Cook a lot
>Video games (Less so now, because I'm realizing I'm wasting so goddamn much time on them, and I'd rather be making them than trying to play something that someone else made)
>Learning programming, Objective C is a bitch
>Listening to more music, not just the same playlists again and again (Though I keep coming back to Tchaik 4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMViOrqBzPk )
Generally trying to keep convincing myself I'm actually happy, and not at all worried about money or school, or being single, or my bad self-image, or shit-tier materialistic things. I need to work on those, plus, someone said earlier that a better sleep schedule was a smart idea, so maybe I should work on that too. That, and not studying at the last possible fucking second...
Listen to QOTSA and feel like shit but at least be listening to okay music
what the actual fuck?
you may have some problems with yourself, but ain't no depression, faglord.
I drink, though a lot less since I tried offing myself. Protip: if you drink while depressed it's going to get much, much worse.
Masturbate furiously? Hike with my doge. Pretend I'm going to have a meaningful life someday by looking at houses, boats, attractive women, etc.
>Am super gay and need to vent
>Go to 4chan and ask how to deal
>Get told to dehumanize myself and face to bloodshed
Plz do it OP plz do
If I'm depressed about something in particular, tailored music
If I'm depressed for no reason, video games and exercise.
If you're in the mood for moping, drink, take lots of herbal sleeping tablets (Can't get real shit.) and listen to your favourite songs slowed down by 40% in a dark room. Also walking around the streets at 3AM smoking.
sorry mr edgy teenager guy fellow person.
your post still sounds like the Supreme Gentleman himself.
> uwaaa I'm a worthless piece of shit
> better go to gym or play the guitar!
Keeping myself busy and giving myself things to look forward to helps a lot. I play a handful of instruments for around 5 ensembles and the amount of time I spend practicing keeps me mostly occupied and not sitting in the house alone.
These are things I've wanted to do for a long time, though I decided its worth taking the time to learn something new, rather than sit on image boards and criticize other peoples problems, whether I consider them legitimate or not.
My girlfriend of a year and a half, beautiful, intelligent, thought we'd be together forever - she said we would. Cheated on me, then left me for another man. I said terrible things, she said terrible things, now she's gone. It hurts.
Now you cry on an anonymous board about a non-existent problem of yours, you goddamn attentionwhore.
Get your shit together.
No wymin will start posting tits because you write a super-depressing story about yourself.
I still call bullshit on you.
Kill you're le self pls Supreme fella.
> cheated on me
> she is gone
> it hurts
So the slut disappears and you miss it.
Maybe if that fucker took half your money or some shit. But getting upset about this? She is a SLUT. Like having a shitty car that just wants to break down. At least it happened "soon".
Be grateful that she did not cheat on you after you started a family or some shit.
And find a new grill.
Drink, mostly. Alchohol is my gateway to bliss. I am a heavy drinker, I can through a bottle of vodka in one night without getting extremely drunk. Also, what is a hangover like. I have never had one, despite blacking out and/or puking plenty of times.
Smoke a pack and a half a day. Listen to depressing music. Walk at night. Talk to my only, best friend. Fantasize of becoming in control of my life, bringing the world to heel, as some manipulative bastard. Being a part of something bigger than myself, changing something, Anonymous perhaps.
At the end of the day, I affect nothing. Everyone that's cared for me I've alienated. I'm alone. And you know what? I don't care. It's pointless to ponder "whys" or "hows", nobody has the answer. People see whatever suits them, and the world flows down its river of blood and shit. But don't let that stop you. Take control. Have some pride. You don't need others for that. Fuck all those cunts who disparaged you for their own image. They're as deluded as the rest of them.
I've got pretty much the same shit as you bro,
>eat good food
>music is my love, music is my life
Shitty sleep schedule, trying to get my body into a better shape, wanted to socialize but never manage to.
Can you send me one of your playlists?
go to gym anon, improve your body
looks like bullshit but it works
i was 184cm and 60kg, cute face but too skinny for being watched by girls, who ignored me
then i started lifting and eating healthy food
it tooked 6 months but now i'm 78kg, ottermode body, and can easily approach a girl and go out with her
best way of coping is just shutting myself off, though that made me really oblivious to my surrounding in some scenarios, like driving a car, I almost shut myself off every minute and go on automatic pilot, which is why im bad at action games, and riving, but am good a tacticals games and jobs
6 Months you say? I have the exact same problem, but I dont want to go to the gym, because I dont want muscle-packed douches to make fun of me. Is it possible to achieve the same with a pair of dumbbells at home?
>20 year old virgin
>Never know what to contribute to a conversation.
I have a job and shit but I don't have any friends that don't pretend to like me. Any girl would find me bland or boring.
I listen to music and talk to people from other countries, it's comfy just listening/reading how otehr people's life is. Watch anime & read manga, and shitpost on /mu/ every monday morning.
also, here, have a wallpaper.
6 months, if you use weight gainers, amino acids and creatine, as i said
you should assume
2gr of proteins each kg everyday
4+4 amino acids caps before and after each session
5gr creatine everyday
avoid bad food like mcdonalds, fried stuff, eat fruits and vegetables, drink 1,5/2 liters of water everyday
3 gym sessions every week
you don't need to become Schwarznegger, you just need a body like this to become attractive
doing right exercises at home is difficult, find a gym with separated rooms for males and females like i did
males are less douches without females around, and maybe you'll find some friends
Man, Pink Floyd is all about that shit, the lost dream of a child, because if you think a little bit, the cheer you got when you were a child was from dreaming, you were delusioned about everyone's intentions and you were pretty innocent. If you listen to pink floyd, it's like it is from another world, it's just pure music, it lets your mind flow through and think whatever you want, it doesn't deliver a particular feeling.
At least in my opinion.
de nada mate, but don't wait, just start
initially it could be boring or difficult, but after 1 month your family will notice changes in your body, after 3 months friends too, and after 6 months everyone you know
just start and never abandon once started
MDMA is a bad idea man, believe me. I was feeling shitty for ages and eventually ended up doing it pretty regularly. Anyway long story short I stopped taking it and now I'm noticing that I'm much better than I was
I have a fake world in my mind, too in which I'mactually happy, where I'm in a happy relationship with my dream girl, I pass my exams and have actual friends. In my real life the people i once called my best friends turn to ignorant, bitchy superficial persons who have nothing in mind but shopping, clothes, lifestyle and beauty.
I miss the days where I met my best (female) friend (my dream girl), we would hang out and maybe call somebody else later. later she met with my former bro and they maybe called me later or not. Now they meet and don't call me. I wish my world would be like in my mind and I wouldn't have to hug and kiss my pillow at night pretending it was her.
