Answer #1

ITS ALL IN OUR HEADS.

POSITIVE THINKING CAN BE EXTREMELY HARD AFTER SO MUCH NEGATIVE THINKING TOO.

I FELT THE SAME WAY A LITTLE WHILE AGO AND I MADE A HUGE EFFORT TO MAKE MYSELF FEEL BETTER. I DINT EVEN WANT TO GET OUT OF BED, HAVE A SHOWER, NOTHING. I FORCED MYSELF AND TOLD MYSELF THAT I WAS GOING TO MAKE A LIST OF GOOD THINGS FOR ME AND ADD ONE TO THE LIST PER DAY AND MAKE SURE I DID THEM. iT WAS A FRIENDS IDEA, I THOUGH IT WAS USELESS, BUT HEY, IM ALIVE , HAPPY AND RECOVERED!!

EXAMPLE OF LIST day 1: Out of bed, wash my hair, go for a walk day 2 Out of bed, wash my hair, go for a walk, make sure I have 8 glasses of water a day day 3 Out of bed, wash my hair, go for a walk, make sure I have 8 glasses of water a day, sing your favorite song and dance to it

day four: all of the above and add one more

when you make your list and add another positive daily activity, think of what good it is doing for you and the long term positive effects example: 8 glasses of water a day is good for your health and your beauty. It helps your skin and hair look good. If you need to loose weight- walking/exercise is good.

when you break down and start to cry, force yourself to stop by being silly and singing.

look at yourself in the mirror every morning and kiss yourself and say outloud “I love you (name)!

take small steps, but positive ones, surround yourself with positive people.

Talk about your depression whenyou need to but try to avoid talking or thinking about your depression too much - you have stay pre-occupied. If you think about how your depressed- youll get more depressed. If you positively take some sort of action (smile at the same time) after time the fake smile will turn into a real one and when you tell yourself you love yorself you’ll mean it! and you’ll feel proud of the huge effort you have made to make yourself happy and you really willl feel happy.

surround yourself with positive people, not negative people and if you have a job - start doing it as well as what you can and impress your boss.

Answer #2

I have obviously offended you am am sorry.

I can understand it annoys you and you made it very clear to me that when terminology is used in this way it is offensive to those who suffer from a medical condition (depression) as oppesed to feeling really down and out.

The simple point I wanted to make is that the person who wrote the question obviously feels bad and wanted advice to feel better.

Expressing your anger and pointing out the fact they use incorrect terminolgy made no one feel better except yourself (for venting your anger/annoyance)

the person who wrote the question may not understand the true meaning of depression and had no intention of offending anyone. Why do you feel the need to then put them down (when they’re already feeling low) and call them an attention seeker.

you can make the same point you did without being mean/heartless/rude and you could have said something along the lines of… “I dont think depression is what you suffer from as its a medical condition that is extremely serious. Please refer to your problem without using incorrect terminolgy as it may offend suffers of depression and the people surrounding them. I hope I havent offended you, sorry for the lack of advice - thought it was important to make that clear. Hope your feeling better about yourself soon :)”

but your comments were mean and expressed no empathy and again Expressing your anger and pointing out the fact they use incorrect terminolgy made no one feel better except yourself (for venting your anger/annoyance)

you strike me as a very selfish, narrow minded, unempathetic, rude, vindictive being and people like should not be aloud to give “advice” to those asking for help if your not going to help them.

Answer #3

I think you are insensative and exuse me but I have every idea. I’ve also had a friend that has died from a result of suicide and have felt that way previously myself.

people type in their questions for help, not to be critised! You are a bully and make yourself feel good by making others feel ashamed.

I’m sorry for what you’ve been through but EVERY depression case is different and all depressed people are not exactly the same as your friend. And not all situations arent the same as your friends either.

Feeling like dying and actually comitting suicide are two different things.
Stop acting like a selfish no it all because all you know is how your friend reacted to depression and you are so nieve to think its all the same.

unless your giving advice to help - why do you feel the need to express your narriw minded, cruel opinion that could only do harm not good. you think people pretend to be depressed? get a life

Answer #4

You clearly dont understand. Depression isn’t like an extreme emotion, Its a medical condition. Like Bipolar, or Postnatal Depression, Or Asperger Syndrome. It has medical symptoms, and phsycological patterns. So what your saying is that medical conditions are completley random. I probably know a lot more about this than you, You seem not to notice the thick bigg barrier between sadness/helplessness, and actual depression. I dont think that shes making it up, but I think that shes overexaggerating. ‘Depression’ and ‘Suicidal’ are way too overused in todays society, and people like you obviously connect this with emotion, which its not. When a person has depression, they do not care about anything but dying. They dont feel anything but this jumble of emotions that makes them feel completley numb. I’ve sat through so many medical consults about this, I really do know what im on about. And no, this isnt making me feel any better, it actually really really pisses me off when people say stupid things like this, its completley disrespecting those who have died due to it, and those currently suffering with it.

Answer #5

I’m that way, too. I feel sorry that you have to go through life like this, but you shouldn’t commit suicide- think about how death will be. I did that and it makes me scared to die :(

But I do feel sorry for you. Just think of the things in your life that you cant live without!

Answer #6

im not attention seeking im just trying to not die because some of the people around me wouldnt be able to cope with it very well and I jsut wana try and cope with it , other wise I will do it, I jsut dont want to hurt some of the people around me! l0standbr0k3n

Answer #7

l0standbr0k3n,

Suicide is not a good decision to make when there are other methods to help you cope with the problems you are going through. Sometimes things get rough, but there is always a bright side… Positive thinking can help, as well as telling someone how you are feeling. Counslers are there to help- and they are good to go to. Please dont harm yourself…

Life has its lows… And its how we get through the lows that show our character and who we are.

Answer #8

Everyone has those days.. they feel like hell and they just want to die.. Personally I just had one of those days recently, and you know what suicide is not the answer, it’s so cowardly just thinking about it.. when your committing suicide what your saying is “I’m hurt and I want to stop that even if it hurts you.” Think of your family, overall suicide is very selfish. You know what when you make it through you’ll feel good because you know you can atleast do it.. Find something to forget about everything else.. something healthy off course.

Answer #9

You don’t even knoww me. If you’d been through what I have stuff like this would pss you off a lot too. Do you have any idea how many people on the internet say their suicidal and just stir shite up, pretending they have problems? No fricking wonder I thought she was just another melodramatic kidd. It really does f*ck with your head. I knoww I shouldn’t have over reacted like that, but I cant help it. And if I was so selfish, and vindictive and rude, I never would have been through this would I? You dont know shite about me, Your totally stuck up your own arss.

Answer #10

DONT LISTEN TO HER, SHE WOULDNT HAVE A CLUE HOW YOU FEEL AND IS OBVIOUSLY VERY INSENSATIVE AND NARROW MINDED!

EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT AND ITS GREAT YOU FIND THE COURAGE TO ASK FOR HELP/ADVICE.

CAN YOU TELL ME - HAS A TRAMATIC EVEN OCCURED OR ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM DEPRESION AND SURE OF THE CAUSE - ONCE I KNOW THIS, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GIVE BETTER ADVICE SUITED TO YOU

Answer #11

Commiting suicide is not the answer. I tried commiting suicide about 4 months ago, and it is the stupidist thing I have ever done. I lost the love of my life to my friend. Lost my best friend of 4 years, and thought that I had no reason to live any longer. But you do, and you just have to try and live through whatever it is that you’re going through right now. You have to see that this is just one short portion of your life, and that there are going to be so many things in the future that you will have to look forward to. If you kill yourself, you’ll never live to see who you’ll fall in love with, if you’ll ever have kids, activities with your friends, dating and things like that. There is so much more to life than what you are dealing with right now at this very second. You need to see that… and yes, and know how the whole going to counselors thing goes. It doesn’t work worth the poop. Its just a big joke. But what I j ust told you is the truth, and there is nothing more to it. You have to LIVE FOR THE FUTURE!!!
