Every day I wake up, and wish I was still sleeping. I can't even remember the last time I was happy. Damn, can't even remember what it feels like to be happy.... Anyway, when I wake up it seems like I was never asleep. So now, (after years of this), I am always tired, I never have any energy, I don't get exited about anything, I never smile, and can't find anything that makes me happy.... What do I do? I've tried going to councilers but they just manage to make my hell hole deeper... and I don't want to take drugs.... It seems to me that every spec of everything in life is sad and mundane. The only thing that is friggin constant in my life is time! All else is just a muddled mess of shit that seemingly cannot be cleaned up. Now I think that suicide is the only fucking answer to my problems, because nothing else helps. Any words of advice? Or should I just make sleep a full time hobby...?

suicide isn't the answer to any problem, that's #1.. ok..

it is a bullshit cop out.. your problems go away but you didn't solve them, you erased yourself and fucked up at least a handful of other people.. i've met people who lost a kid to suicide.. they are empty a lot of the time.. lot..

ok, so you're sad/pissed/depressed.. i feel for you man but wake up.. we all are.. a lot of people hide it behind some fakeass whiter than white smile but we're all at the very least temporarily fucked up..

the answer?

there isn't one, it makes a big difference if you're busy though.. i've been sick (blah,blah) since i joined this site.. in the past week i've been well enough to work.. today it hit me, i'm busy again.. i'm building shit and getting tired and making money and getting out the house.. mundane shit but gold from lead for an ill man..

aim low, get busy and the rest will follow.. :thumbsup:

Ok, maybe I'm missing something but if you've tried everything else and nothing worked, why NOT take the drugs? I mean what have you got to loose in all reality?

New anti-depresents don't make you happy or drugged up. They take the edge off and allow you the energy you need to deal with the problems. Why not give it a try and see if it helps?

I suffer from depression every day and have since I was about 6..

Do you have any friends that you could hang out with? I've noticed myself that getting out of the house and doing active things with other people helps a lot. Also, I have come to find that spending time doing things that I like to do helps to channel negative feelings and turn them into something positive..I write for instance..It helps me to let my feelings out, and many times it helps me to deal with my frustrations.

Life is worth living not giving up on and believe me all the trials a person goes through only makes them stronger.

Sorry to post right after, but I feel like maybe I should let you know what happens after somebody commits suicide.

Somebody loves you and cares rather you live or not. When a person kills themself all the people that loved them are left with a horrible sucking void..My cousin killed himself and his father tripped over him the next morning on his way to get the paper...The entire family grieved and some of us still do..Suicide is a finality like nothing I've ever experienced before. If you have anyone you love think about how it would effect them if you took your own life.

I agree with this post.

Whenever I feel like shit, I go outside, get some air, take a walk, and do shit to get my mind off things. Even if it's only for 10 minutes or whatever. Trust me, it helps.

Cheese, I was in your position since I was 8 years old. Almost 13 years. Over the years, I often thought to myself "What's the point?" Yes, I thought of suicide. More often than was healthy for me. What really helped me 3 years ago was I had a friend who I felt I could tell anything to. We talked every day for a year and a half, then, for some reason, she told me to fuck off.:happysad:

As was already said, you have people who care about you. It may not seem like it at times, but you do. Like your wtf.com family.:p

Excercise might help you feel better.:happysad:

Hmmm, I'll try to make my noobish words of wisdom a little more helpfull then this ones...

I don't think I can claim to get much more depressed than the average jo, but my close friend did and on the pretty extreme side of the disorder aswell, just when we were a bit older then you. Now hes doing ok and has a lot going on in his life thats moving him foward.

Although I'm skeptical about the pill popping nature of society, it might be a good start taking anti depressents. Maybe if everythings looking grim at the moment they might give you a kick start out of the rut your in and you can get on with becoming busy with life...

Your only young man, and things'll probably get better in the future, but only if leave a future open for yourself! Take a look around and have a think about just how insignificant we are in the universe and it might put your problems into perspective... our lives arnt even spits in the ocean of time, we'll all be gone soon enough whether we like it or not, why speed up the process that would just result in pain of the ones that care about you.

I read in a book once that the actuall process of smilling and the muscle movements increase flow of endorphines and give a sense of happiness... try it, its probably bull shit but at least it'll be funny cause you look stupid doing it!:D

Totally agreed. Whenever i'm down especially now, i just grab a pen and paper and write whatever comes out. I suffered REALLY badly from acne when in high school and that is shit. self esteem goes down the shitter and rep means alot in high school. But when ever i was down, even back then i would write stuff.

My life has gotten better as the years have passed. I was really happy in my old job, i was settled and had and ace girlfriend. I then got shifted into uni cuz my parents said i had to. I've been depressed a bit, but i've written some good stuff i must say.

I don't know if this has helped you at all, that is what helps me get through bad/tough things. Pen and paper ;)

The post in general was helpful. :happysad: However, the bulk of the middle paragraph I already know.

Hey cheese when I was in high school I learned how to meditate and look at myself on the inside. I would then make a mental note of things that were going wrong in my life, and devise ways to fix them. I am a believer (not saying you should change your religous status or lack thereof..just a comment on how I help myself) and some people think eastern techniques are evil..I say never mind them..we were given a brain to use.

I think one of the biggest obstacles depression lays in one's path is a feeling of ineffectualness (which is by the way what I am dealing with right now)..and the follow up with oh who gives a fuck?? Apathy is a person's worst enemy. I have discovered that I actually get sick of feeling shitty all the time and that is actually a motivation for me to do something to solve my problems.

Laughter helps tremendously..You know many times comedians make jokes about some of the most painful things they have went through, and everybody laughs because everybody understands the pain. I try and use this route as well because it enables me to go on a rant, get it off my chest, and laugh about it at the same time. It seems as though laughter diffuses the feeling of being trapped and stuck in the same place. It helps me to keep in mind that life shouldn't be taken so seriously.

If you are stubborn in nature use that to your advantage. Fight back depression with that..go on a rant. Let your feelings out..don't bottle them up and let them bury you. Try not to hurt others in the process. If your passive in nature take notice of things that upset you and push your feelings through other avenues..ie find a hobby or something your extremely interested in and bury yourself in that instead. It will help by giving you a sense of accomplishment. Hang out with people who are compassionate and have a good sense of humor. Talk to your family..they care about you in their own fashion.
