Topic: I have depression but I don't want to be sad

Posted under Off Topic

I am alone, I feel empty and unrequited
I don't know where to go or who to talk to :S

I don't expect much from here, but at least this is some sort of vent for me.

and if you read this, thank you for that, that's kind of you.

I can appreciate that you're feeling desperate, as the number of places to turn to for this online are unfortunately small. I get it. But this isn't really the right place for this.

maybe try therapy or something

Currently I'm going to therapy, I have vent out and I have understood things better thanks to that, but even so, I still feel in need of * something *

true advice from a true person, the least I can do is appreciate it, and the most I can do is take it
thank you, yes, I won't look for my happiness in here, I've already experienced what kind of things can happen if I do that

Hey, if you ever need somebody to vent to, though, feel free to hit me up in personal messages for my Discord handle. I'm told I'm a pretty good listener.

I wouldn't be sure at all about it, but thank you for saying it

That's fair. But if you change your mind, the offer stands.

Medication. Instant way to not be depressed, cheaper than therapy, and works more often than therapy. Paxil is a hell of a drug, makes anxiety, and depression, fuck right off so you can enjoy the world around you and be a social butterfly. Its 50$ for a bottle of 30 20mg pills, from wal-mart, with my urgent treatment clinic doctor's RX. Literally just as easy to go to a cheap clinic and tell a doctor you want anti-depressant.

Now, if you want to not fix what ails you, so you can use it as an excuse to vent or bring other people down, then thats your choice, just responding to the thread title. Unless you live in a third-world country, depression is a easy fix, and there are literally hundreds of specific medication treatments that will work if one or another doesn't do the job, all without having to rely on illegal drugs or alcohol.

Worst advice ever

Agreed, and given like the parent who sticks an electronic device in their kid's hands so they don't have to deal with them. Medication doesn't work for everyone. Medication that does work can stop working or need a dosage change. Mental health is a fuckton more complicated than "here, take a pill."

Depression is NOT an easy fix. If you want to fix what ails you, please, please, please talk to a professional and not the randy armchair quarterbacks and jaded trolls on e621.

Is it even that easy to get medication? Don’t you need to be diagnosed by a psychiatrist first? Secondly I don’t want to spend $600 a year on pills, although it’s probably more than that because I don’t have insurance.

Ultimately, even that only does so much. Having someone to confide in privately does help, but it's even better if you also have someone with a more personal connection. It's all up to you in the end and not having to rely on any one source as a crutch. It takes strength to move forward, it really does.

I think I'll also mention, psychology itself... I think it's worth looking into the subject. It can help, and one may find it pretty intriguing.

It's important to help yourself to understand as much as you can.
