xxsweetyxx: i also believe in dont judge a book by its cover i no thats random but people take one look n think things n automatically assume things thats the problem in this world today coz u look different or sound different ppl judge and ppl with depression (sometimes) feel awful with what ppl think and that dont help self a steam in the long run really does it to be honest but all the best to u all love yas all n god bless xx
catman5141: I was depression from9/11 when 30 0f my close friends die but dont not know it for a yr ..i worked and and that normal stuff of life ..an outsider say i could have depression i did nt except it but the doc but me on happy pills i felt alive and different .after a week the doc took me off ..
wayne elliott: Catman5141 sorry to read of your huge loss 9/11. I wonder what sort of pills doctor used and why he took you off them. Anti depressants take weeks to months to work, it's quite gradual.
catman5141: Wayne yes one pill if i happen to take two i would O.D.powerful pills ..i dont rember what it was call ..but thanks
alpossmar82: Tobacco is a good means of supressing depression, government tryed stoping inpatients from smoking most are under anti psychotics (Drs obsessively prescribe it). Humans rights commision stepped in on the health system.
wayne elliott: Australian govt stopped inpatients smoking too. When I was "sectioned" (illegally) someone smoked in the toilet. Well! You'd think we were criminals! They searched everyone in a line and threatened us if we didn't comply. I asked why they didn't just check the video from all the cameras set up all over the place and recieved no response - anopther tool they used to provoke the inmates.
Smoking is to be banned in the prisons here too. many prisoners are there because of untreated mental illness. What a world!
Big Bopper: Stop watching TV. Do things! Walk to get you groceries. Walk to work. Play a new sport. Plant flowers. Plant vegetables. Say hi to a new person every day and mean it.
xxsweetyxx: Do u know what i have figured out its the people that u talk to that bring you down and just slate u and just treat you like utter shit and you no what its the people that are close to you that do it................ that you don't expect it from. that do things to you that changes your life making you feel depressed easy to say don't watch TV or do whatever but what is there in this world these days really fuck all i say stay positive how you meant to do that when things are crashing down around you and no one is there to help or you have a illness and all you can do is wait till your times up so tell me how some one like that can not have depression or anger or watching someone die in front of you that's close to you some people really need to no how lucky they really are honestly grrrrrrr RANT OVER
Big Bopper: Awww...sweety, sounds like you have it tough right now. Take the high road when you hear something you didn't want to hear from someone you thought was a better person. Remember that everyone must deal with negatives...try not to hold it against them. Perhaps they just had it a little rougher than they could handle at that moment and let something slip.
Do something nice for yourself...whatever it takes to make you smile and laugh.
The coolest thing is that you can always come back here and rant some more!

wayne elliott: Hey xxsweetyxx I understand your 'rant.' I was constantly shamed and denegrated throughout childhood - and adult hood - by the person who was supposed to be a mother - but she didn't treat my twin like that. Her mission was to completely crush my spirit.
I used humour to attract friends who didn't realise the terrible insecurity and hopeless sense of worthlessness I have struggled with lifelong.
I used art to express and went onstage which challenged my insecurity. I channelled my rage into fighting government for the rights of the disenfranchised - including protections for the elderly in nursing homes across the country. I worked in service industries and was a nurse, walked to work and planted vegetables. I even isolated from the world in a search for answers.
The fact is I have a depressive disorder that has caused havoc these past 50 plus years and I realise it will be with me til death (doctors cheerfully noted that such disorders diminish with age). Revealing it and seeking treatment at age 45 was one of the biggest mistakes I have made in my life. I have dispensed with doctors and their experiments. It is still a challenge to get past the fact that all I have done was no cure for this illness. I have cut "mother" out of my life (she excluded me from my fathers funeral in 2012. My twin was too weak to stand up to her about excluding me.)
I comfort myself with the thoughts that I have done the best I could in most situations and the fact that this condition is not forever.
xxsweetyxx: top and bottom of it people take the piss for instance i calls the police on someone purely coz my son was in bed and that they were fighting n swearing outside n smashing there car n that outside at like 1.30 am in the morning that was last week they r being so horrible to me taking piss out of me and everything but yet i live on my own with my son and don't no them at all just shows how low people can be im trying to get out of here so much due to no sleep coz of the noise n my son not sleeping n past issues ive just hit rock bottom right now yet again i thought a man beating me up n etc was the last of it but i try to protect me n my son n i get it all over again when is it going to stop really im 24 all my life ive had shit grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
wayne elliott: What a terrible time your are having xxsweetyxx and Im sorry to read about the monsters invading your space and life like that. Not good for your son either. Maybe you could record these attacks agaisnt you - film, sound, journals etc and use them against the attackers in a legal way if your state/country have laws that protect your rights
Big Bopper: A single mother may be eligible for assistance...a more appropriate location for your child being the important factor. Your health contributes to your child having the best chance to succeed, and that is the purpose of social services. Ask about this. Not knowing your location, I can only suggest calling the police NON emergency number and asking for the appropriate person to talk to. Don't be shy, don't be angry, these people are experts at getting young mothers the help they need.
wayne elliott: Good advice Big Bopper, and if I could add in a paraphrase: the monsters that are attacking xxsweetyxx are experts at what they do because they love it. It's a reflection of their character not their victims'
alpossmar82: The expression of skills that pay the bills, can guarantee connections, learn a new skill someone to watch your back. Non health professionals real folks.
wh855669: Have you suffered with this most of your life or it's just here now and then. I have had it all my life and tried everything, I tried every antidepressant on the market for 23 years and for a short while they would work and then stop working. I tried ECT but did not work. In 2020 I tried TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and it worked, I also take Rhodiola extract, it's not perfect but a hell of a lot better than I ever have been, Good luck.
leona_smith_torquay: I am no expert, but how you see things is a state of mind, watch a small child and they can be enraptued by a simple thing, as we grow old, we expect more, and watch less. Take plesue in what you have, and what is around you. Do not expect the universe to be fair, or give you what you think you deserve.
Thats a simple start
