    I don't really know what is going on icon_sad.gif
    I been feeling kinda depressed lately. I go to the gym and I even took a kind of impromptu road trip to the Grand Canyon alone and while it was awesome, I still feel bad. I can't begin to explain what my feelings are. It really is just a culmination of a lot of things. I suspended my Facebook account to try to get my mind of other people's crap and focus on me more. I think I get too involved with trying to talk to people and care about them. I think being in the backseat for a while might help me in removing some of my feeling and anxiety

    I think therapy might help a lot. I just HATE feeling a certain way and not being able to get over it or understand what to do!! icon_evil.gif

    Are you normally a depressed type of person or is this a new feeling you're having? Can you link it to anything in particular going on in your life?

    I used to feel like that from time to time until I changed my diet and my sleep schedule. Light therapy did wonders for getting up/ going to bed at "regular" times.

    Though that was me and there certainly could be many other causes.

    You shouldn't feel blah.
    You're young.
    You're pretty cute.
    and you've got us.

    What more could one possibly need?

    Being bored with life is tough, but I think you hit the nail on the head when you started with depressed. You really need to think about "Why"

    Aww thanks mr. Well I don't think I am ugly or anything. I am confident in my looks, it's not that at all.

    I have family and good friends-not a lot but a few good friends who have been awesome. I still feel alone though somehow. Like they are mostly girls and all living with their bfs or husbands. I feel like I am just left behind and forgotten sometimes. I could disappear and they might msg me and wonder where I am but that's all. I hate feeling like I need more. I should appreciate what I have now. I can't even argue it out w/ myself

    umm I don't think it's the same thing at all
    I been feeling like this for a long long time, since last year but I think it is finally catching up with me since life has, in a way, actually settled down for me. I never did drugs or was in a long term relationship. This is not a 2 week and forget kind of thing

    Could it just be a lack of friends? Seems like all your friends are unavailable due to marriage. Maybe it's time to go out and meet some new (available) friends.

    And that's why I don't think it's the same at all. I don't feel like you are even a genuine, decent person. You have the depth of a piece of paper

    Congratulations on realizing that there's some kind of problem, and deciding that you need to do something about it. Getting a medical opinion is a good first step. I'd go to your general practitioner and see what he has to say.
    As long as you don't do nothing, I think everything will turn out fine.
    Hugs.

    Joseph -- I hope you feel better soon. I wish I had more specific advice for you. It sucks to feel like a third wheel when it seems like everyone close to you is paired up and you're not. It could be that you'll find yourself feeling better once February 14th is passed...

    In the meantime maybe it would help to get involved in volunteer work or to participate in group activities. For example, when I was in Phoenix a few years ago for a conference I also had a great time running and going out to brunch with the local Frontrunners group.

    Could also be a chemical imbalance that might be helped by a prescription for anti-depressants under the supervision of a qualified psychiatrist.

    Good luck managing these challenges. Take care of yourself.

    Sorry to hear youre potentially depressed mate. I feel there is a lot of stigma attached to it cause there aint a lot of understanding but i suffered from depression for a long time but recovered about two years ago.

    first of all mate youre doing the best thing - talking about it. It seems unnatural - i hated it but it really is the way to start feeling better - a problem shared is a problem halfed.

    oTHER THAN THAT TRY KEEP A DECENT ROUTINE. dEFFO KEEP GOING TO THE GYM. tHE ONLY THING that kept me sane. The better you maintain a routine and normal life the happier you will become

    And keep a decent diet. dont starve and dont binge either one is possible whilst feeling low

    I care man, I'm sorry I am in a similar boat at times... Therefore I can't give a answer that helps but I can show support

    Go with therapy.. I'm not in a place where I could do such a thing without my entire family knowing and that upsets me, but you seem to be in the perfect place for it and accept that it is needed for you

    Don't listen to any Assholes who would dare kick a person when they are low.. or tell them something like... I dunno... "no1curr" because the truth is.. they feel like no 1 currs about them . . . icon_rolleyes.gif

    I care Joey -- (my grandpa's name was Joseph, so I've always had a soft spot for people named Joe or my grandmother's name)

    What has your sleeping been like?
    Have your eating habits changed?
    Do things that usually make you happy have no appeal?

    If you are having the blues only spend time with people that you 100% feel safe and comfortable with, nurturing and supportive people. Less light can sometimes make people blue. Also make sure you're getting adequate protein and omega 3's -- protein/specific amino acids make neurotransmitters and omega 3's have been shown to help stabilize moods. Although I feel truly depressed people don't utilize neurotransmitters correctly, even if they're being made.

    It's best to give yourself/your mind a break during this time... If it lasts for a few weeks seek professional help; it could be something as simple as a thyroid test or vitamin deficiency.

    I'm not saying , but it is true in some ways. Do something different that might lift up that feeling of yours..

    everyone becomes depressed every now and then.. but ive learned in many psychology classes that putting yourself out there pulls you out of depression. For instance: if you don't feel like going out with friends, you force yourself to go out with them.. Simply doing social activities makes you less depressed. The further you withdraw like taking more time to yourself (although that can be good) the more depressed you become.. so try not to withdraw too much from society.. Feeling gratitude for the people around u or simply being alive makes you a happier person.. heres a vid that u might enjoy!
