You may need professional help. Seriously, what have you got to lose by finding a counselor or therapist.
For most people, depression is "real," in that real events have beaten them down into a hole. However, it's the hole that is the real problem. Inside the hole is a lot of inertia to keep you there, much of it neurological and hormonal.
A professional can help you sort out the circumstances (the "real" stuff) from the hole (your body's response to it), and give you devices, advice or medication to help you get out. The help will be real, direct and appropriate. I hope you can find the energy to make a phone call to get started.[/quote]
Psychologist aren't any help at all, in fact they just make matters worse. Almost every medication out there will only make you 3x's worse the moment you forget to take it once. It's not worth the pain nor money.
The best medicine for depression is being around those who you love and make you happy. Only hang around those that lift you up not bring you down. Depression is a very serious thing. You can find out what set it off to begin with without having to pay someone to talk to you about your problems. Having friends you can converse with helps especially those who's advice you always are prone to listen to.
If you find you've stopped doing the things you love than what will help you out is making the time to try to do whatever activities your interested in. Even if all you do is sit there staring at whatever supplies or equipment is required for it. Also what i've found that helps is whenever you start thinking lifes a bitch and isn't worth all the bullshit, sometimes forcing a paradigm shift to happen helps.
And you're right it isn't as easy as just getting up and shaking it off, but you gotta realize those two things are the first step to helping yourself get better. We are instruments of our own destruction at times. Don't let this be one of those times. We must find something worth fighting for and find the means to overcome this obstacle in our path. Overcoming this shall only make you a stronger, better person in life. Take it in small steps though cause nothing is won over night.
Best of luck in your reveries, RJ bud
