Anxiety/depression
Been through bad time lately with suffering with this. Dark thoughts as well. I know some posters on here suffer with this. Anyone come through the other side of this shit?

Thanks Ridik

Sometimes you think that a rant will help and be cathartic.
It doesn't and it isn't of course.
Hiding is better.

I'd recommend reading Reasons to stay alive by Matt Haig.
So much of it was common to my experience it was ridiculous.
Fantastic book.

I stupidly cut and pasted that link. 😆 Good post peckham, agree about getting other people's stories. Knowing you're not alone is a help.

Depression is one big cunt that at times it unexplainable to others who see someone articulating themselves ok and on the surface looking fine.
That is why this thread has been good, to be able to relate to others, see how others perceive it, advice from those who have experience of helping others, and for those who have shared their dark moments of family who have took their lives. Its drumming it into my head the heartache I would cause my family if push came to shove.
A thread with empathy and constructive opinions. FMOB

Most of the depressed people I know are pretty resentful and cynical

All of 2 people, Bruno son?

Don't really understand what people have to be cynical or resentful for? I resented myself for a while which I've managed to put to bed.

Depressed, or suffering from depression?

Bollocks. Most of the depressed people I know are pretty resentful and cynical, I sometimes wonder what came first, chicken and egg

Re: Anxiety/depression
I think sometimes the nature of mental illness means that often the person suffering will have done or will be doing lots of things that are causing it or at least not helping the situation. You have to start by looking at what you can change.

I know lots of people who self medicate with alcohol and or drugs and that can make the problems worse.

I give my time to anyone if they need in Mike. Some old lady was lost in Portsmouth. I didn't know where her destination was , so I went into some shops and asked and then a pub found out where it was and then walked with her until she knew where she was going

Re: Anxiety/depression
The "helping others" aspect is quite interesting.

I'd bet a pound to a penny that most, if not all, of the people suffering depression would be the first in line to offer somebody else help if asked. These people literally end up with no time for themselves and their own lives.

You have to look at every aspect of your life to combat mental illness. Yes meds and therapy can help but as others have said, exercise, nature, volunteering, having a purpose, helping others, mindfulness can all help as well.

I know plenty of people who they work charmingly for.

The meds are a tool, they aren’t the solution.

Re: Anxiety/depression
I see.

Well I for one have certainly fallen into the Friday curry routine!

It's a level above that, although that is a focal point in the whole process.

Apple, for instance need to shift their latest product, so they use every opportunity to convince people that they are expected to (be one of the first to) own it. Hieneken do a similar thing with their "beer", Persil with their washing powder, etc, etc., etc.

The board are playing a similar game in trying to paint everything as rosy - making the choice to (pay to) attend games for you.

Friday night, many are expected to go down the pub, get rat-arsed then go for a curry. They are also expected to believe that they are really, really having a good time and enjoying it, because, well, everybody else is.

We. following West Ham, do it even more so; we support the team, so we religiously turn up at the (new) place of worship every time they do, no matter how bad that can be. we are expected to show our support. To be honest, had work and family commitments not taken precedence in my life all those years ago, I would almost certainly be one of those doing what was "expected of me", turning up on demand.

Similarly, people, I believe, need to make open & honest value judgements about events in their lives and identify what they are doing because others expect them to do it, an what they are doing because they - alone - made the choice to do so.
