Originally posted by Inactive UserAs someone who is clinically depressed, I feel for you man. Firstly, I would suggest seeking a therapist and/or psychiatrist to talk to. Just talking to someone who is educated in helping people with these issues is a big step and can make you feel a lot better. I was prescribed Wellbutrin but I stopped taking it because it raises my blood pressure and gave me panic attacks, but there's a ton of different medications out there, so you may find one that can help you. As for me, I didn't want to be reliant on a pill to help me feel better.
The doctor will more than likely make you take a few tests and talk to him for a few sessions before making a decision on your mental condition. If he does decide you are clinically depressed, don't take it personally. Its not you. Its a chemical imbalance in your body that makes you feel that way, its not always something you can just snap out of. I live with the fact that I know I'll feel depressed and horrible the rest of my life, but that doesn't mean you can't take steps to improve yourself. I started exercising; running and lifting weights as well as eating a lot healthier. Its made me feel better about myself and life in general.
yeah I say this to myself a lot.Originally posted by Inactive User
When you start feeling those waves of depression, like your life sucks and will never get any better you just have to try to think of
the big picture. Someone out there has it a lot worse than you, and if you think about it, your life is pretty good.

dont think so much man
i sort of was in that situation... i would sleep more than half the day and i pretty much ate one meal a day... i think these simple things (sleeping, eating, etc)have a big impact on your moods/grades/etc. maybe start by fixing your sleep routine... make a sleep journal or something.
I had that not caring about anything and depression/tired thing a while back. I just dealt with it and it went away. As for the word/imagining thing I have no clue.
Also getting that much sleep could be making you feel shitty.
And I also tried to think more happy. Like I got a girlfriend, stopped worrying about shit, and just tried live a happier life and it worked.
I think you should just find something that you're interested in and pursue it and focus on it. That should help take your mind off the stress and shit.
roughly 15% of people with depression sleep too much.
Force yourself to go out. You seem like a overthinker like me. Do you drag on in your head with random social questions/statements like, "Whats the point of drinking?" "Why even go to a party?" "Why do i even hang out with my friends?".
I been reading about grandiosity a lot and I think I have it (so do a lot of people on this site). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandiosity try reading this.

That's what I thought too, but when it hits it hits hard. I believe the more sane you are, the more insane you can become.
Originally posted by Inactive UserThis x3. I've always thought of myself as a clear headed guy but over the past few months I've noticed that I may be developing social anxiety. Im trying to get past this shit by not thinking of it too much and practicing being social..
and for as much as I love bud, I've come to realize that its kind of making me worse so I limit myself now.
