dealing with depression
I have been really down lately. I get in moods where I don't want to talk to anyone, and even my closest friends annoy the shit out of me. It has begun to happen about once a week, and is starting to affect my everyday life.
Any of you out there ever dealt with this? If so, what did you do?
Thanks fellow be-maggers.
*insert obligatory smoke weed and drink comment*
^don't do that.. makes it worse
If you're becoming really moody, it might be a sign of a slight bipolar disorder. What I'd do is track what you're doing when your mood shifts and see if there are any triggers. In addition to that being more physically active can benefit your mood. Sometimes developing a new hobby (learning to play an instrument or something) can keep your mind preoccupied which will prevent you from thinking self-defeating thoughts. Sunlight is also a factor, so if you can get outside more too, it has some effect.
I fucking hear you dude. I used to get so depressed I wouldn't get out of my bed for days at a time unless it was to get something to eat or drink. Fucking crying and all that bullshit. There really isn't a certain way to deal with the shit, since it's all mental. Play music man. That shit draws on all the ill feelings you have and you can watch yourself get better. Do something productive.
Actually there is something you can do about it. You can just stop giving a fuck. That was probably the greatest thing that happened to me. I have never been happier sitting in my room not doing shit. The outside world sucks mostly. I hate being out there. All of those life experiences people talk about are overrated and over exaggerated.
I stopped talking to friends completely. Now I'm 30 making friends is awkward as fuck.
I find when i'm down a certain song on repeat and lying in a darkroom helps shitty anxious thoughts subside and the next day I'm okay.
All i can suggest is to keep busy. As wierd as it sounds having a constant routine of things to do helps as well.
Exercise works, go for a skate...
If that doesnt work take meds, everyone else is medicated for shit, why not you.
If it helps when you get older it goes, but that seems so far away.
Lastly tell your friends this, if their your friends it wont be such a problem, tell them mentally you want to be alon and not associate with them, but its not physically the best thing and you want the opposite. Tell them you may be hard to be around your sorry if you act like a jerk sometimes.
DO NOT ABONDONE YOUR FRIENDS OR YOU WILL BE FOREVER ALONE>...
Lastly, bitch about it on be-mag.....I do, zim did before he was banned and krish does....

when that time comes it's time to do manly ass things like throwing ninja stars and setting things on fire. other adrenaline rush type stuff really moves those happy emotions out there.
Get one or more plants and start maintaining a garden. There's nothing like growing plants.
Collect seeds while you're at it too, seeds will be very valuable in the coming world collapse.
You'll be a rich man.
I'm serious about the plant thing though, I have a few plants that I look after and it's turned my flat into somewhere I'm happy to be!
1. Keep a video diary.
2. Sell to interested docu. Company.
life is beautiful. Im thankful for the times im down because it makes me appreciate being happy that much more. I used to be an extremely depressed teenager but one day in my senior I stopped taking all of my medication and it was the best shit ever. Conventional medication wont do shit but make you feel like a zombie. Smoking weed and skating and being around awesome people helps a lot.
Get the fuck out of your "comfort zone". Start doing different activities. Keep your mind busy. See your friends at least once a week, even if you don't feel like doing so.
Change, if life sucks try it. Try a new job, new creative outlet, exercise... Sometimes honestly nothing works but time. There cant be highs with the lows!
go see a therapist. doing drugs will only mask the problem.
something that might sound shitty but can also help is that youre so insignificant. like what the fuck do you matter
out of the 6 billion people in the world? you only live once so trying to do as many fun things as you can while you
have time here is important. no need to feel sorry for yourself man its not that bad, i understand its a sickness but
you can beat a sickness in your head with good, clean, prosperous thoughts.
smoke weed skate drink 40s
i'm going through a brakeup and my eyes fucking opened up, in the time i was with this fuckup my skating got so fucking neglected, the only thing that makes me feel better is going out skating and for some reason i dont give a fuck for throughing myself at stuff, surprinsingley is paying off and man does it feel great, might not be as bad as your situation but i found that skating a lot more does a lot for me, by myself or with people.
try writing it all down. not necessarily a journal type thing where you have to write in it everyday. just something you can write in when you feel down. just put all your feelings and thoughts down on paper. its a physical way of getting out all of the things that are going on inside of you without paying money, risking dignity, or putting it on someobody else. a lot of the time it will really help you work through issues, allowing your thought process to come around full circle so you can physically see the faults and strong points.
all of the others advice is really good too, listen to all these people
