Never mind

Never mind

I try and maintain a smile on my face and stay uplifted everyday but seems like the world is against me for the most part. It brings a sense of doubt to everything that I know and want. I've lost most of my drive when it comes to procrastination level is at an all time high...I've actually having breathing problems due to the enclose-ment of this new dilemma that has evolved. (Depression) I've had this for a while but I was unsure what it really was/is. I can't get motivated, I don't answer phone calls, and unbiased 3 days of work so far, which is unusual. Am I having a break down...?...I know I need to seek out some help but I just don't know who.

Hi Troublesome,

I would say that you are severely depressed. I have struggled with depression all my life. It does come with physical symptoms such as your body not feeling as it should. Pain, nausea. Mental torment. Depression lies. It's a constant struggle to know what is actually true as opposed to what it's putting in your head. The thoughts alone will drive your anxiety through the roof. I'm new to this group. Another fun fact about depression and anxiety is that you'll find out that you really don't have that many true friends. At first they might listen and try to help, but after a while, they don't want to deal with it either. Hell, I don't want to deal with it. Can't expect them to. Anyway, my advice to you is to go outside. Take a walk. Listen to music. Anything that might change your thoughts. There's a bunch of self hypnosis music on YouTube that might help. But if you can afford it, you should really go to a doctor. Get a psychiatrist. The doctor may give you something to help until you see a psychiatrist. You don't want to just see a regular doctor. They don't always know what is best. You'll need to keep track of your sleep and your mood. Don't expect the doctor to keep track. You need to know what you've taken and what the results are so adjustments can be made accordingly. I wish you well. Hang in there. "This too shall pass". That's where I am. I recognize that it's my head that's lying to me. It's just so damn hard to get the rest of me to stop reacting the way it does. I don't know if we can message people on here, but if we can, I will try to check up on you. See if you are doing better. Best of luck


Hi I would hesitate with the statement that you are 'severely depressed'. There are no medical professionals on here and even if there were you couldn't be diagnosed over the net. Trying to give medical advice is against the rules of the site. We can give experiences etc. but that is a different kettle of fish.

This does sound like depression though. Why not do a couple of online depression tests, there are quite a few if you google them.

If you think it is depression then see your doctor and get a proper diagnosis. The medical route is pills and/or counselling.

If you want to try self help look up meditation, yoga and mindfulness. There are also other natural routes to go down too.
