In any event, I'd be willing to make a bet that most of the depressed people are probably the most interesting and empathic people, so we do get something out of it.
My sympathy to all who have depression...being on the verge of toppling into it sometimes, I
do understand how you feel. Being in mental anguish and stress must be very painful,but I
just want to ask if you understand how the people close to you feel ?
My husband was diagnosed with depression in 2006. I have 2 children and there were days
I felt like I had 3 children to worry about.
There were even days I felt like I don't need this in my life. I can't take this crap anymore.
Sometime's it's hard having to be strong all the time...but my husband is an amazing man and
I love him too damn much to ever give up on him.
So while I know you are the one who has depression, spare a thought for the people who have
to put up with you. It's no picnic for us either.
In some sense, I now see my future being to a degree invested in reparations to those who had to deal with me all these years.
There are many people close to me who also suffer from real depression, so I am very fortunate to have many who can truly empathize. Those who have not been through it can't understand it, period, and I don't say that with any recrimination - It's just not possible.
One thing that is helpful though is some gentle prodding, poking and pushing (thanks again, to you know who. ), as it's very difficult to clamber out of the hole you find yourself in.
One thing that I lost is perspective, and the only way to get that back is via other people.
To a degree, but people that suffer from depression, like myself, have bouts where they wish they'd died in their sleep, the idea of bunking work & getting fired yields no direct consequence in their minds, ie: when you are depressed your entire outlook on life is warped, you can go through episodes where death/losing your job/everything doesn't phase you and it can get worse.
Wow, hurts to read this. G'luck dude. I think I need to go see someone.
Vitamins and minerals may help keep the billy goats at bay. Though if you suffer with anxiety as well perhaps speak to your doctor first and start with small doses. Also make sure your Vitamin D levels are adequate and that you get enough magnesium. Magnesium has been known to show results in treatment resistant depression.
Depression can even progress to a catatonic state so there is no lowest state.
