I have sadness , weather , reactive recurring
It is IMPORTANT to find The Right Med and The Right Dosage for you. It varies from person to person.
In my opinion, depression, like PTSD, can be controlled, but one is never truly cured!
Yeah I have thought about calling them before but never have
Things will get better. Keep your chin up. 😇

Not necessarily chemical (hormonal) unbalance 😉More likely thoughts and feelings gotten control, creates neurological connection patterns to easier think and feel the way they do. get reinforced with hormonal (chemical) influencing at specific spots to get right effect.
I think your idea would work even better with actual women instead of pictures but Im glad that it works for you though.I think that it would be a good idea if there were guys and women that talked with , hung out with , spent time with , did things with people that had mental health problems.
I have anxiety but Im lucky enough to not have an anxiety attack
@Astuma : Indeed. They're horrible. Feel like a heart attack and asthma attack rolled into one, and their toll taken on your ability to organize your own thoughts and life only adds to the stress.
There is a difference between morning , trauma , grief , depression.I have , sadness chronic recurring depression , weather depression.
In the U. S. mental health is a stigma , its judge , there is ignorance.The U. S. goes for quick fixes.In the U. S. mental heath education is lacking.
@Astuma for sure. we are good at traumatizing people and terrible at care for them. My area just built a childrens hospital for mental health. well see... the thought is good, but I gotta wonder... it says a lot that they build a hospital for children with mental health issues. Speaks volumes of our society...
I think the hospital for children with mental hea;th issues is a goo idea.I think in patient , out patient , clinics , hospitals , facilities , education , awareness , training s what we need.
@Astuma I totally agree, this is largely fixable if we embraced the issues the right way. Why don't we... it really isn't that hard, but clearly is expensive.
Also look for shitty people in your life. People who treat you poorly, give you bad news, discourage your ideas, etc. They aren't worth it.
I'm already vegan lol
Okay. Eating healthy food or junk?Any toxic people? Sometimes their remarks are pretty sly and under the radar.
Eating , drinking healthy yes vegan no 3 words Will Smith's kid.There's more than just the way animals are treated.If you are going to bring up tortured animals be advocate or tortured animals and make a difference.There's so much vegan prop aganda out there.We need to stop the torturing of animals.We need to do something about poisons , toxicons , chemicals , carigions.Yes even vegan diets have that stuff.Your body and mind requires more than just vegan stuff
I eat healthy and no toxic people around me
If you are a vegan Apple than you are not eating healthy like I said Will Smith's kid
@Astuma well I'm pretty happy with being vegan so not gonna change. I've actually never eaten meat in my whole life 😝
I wasn't talking about meat or vegan Im just saying dont go around telling people that vegan is healthy when its not.Other than that you are free to eat how ever you like.
Vegans have by far the lowest risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and a crap ton of other stuff. Do it like a moron and you will get deficiencies. It's pretty consistent with all ex-vegan videos. They do dumb restrictive diets (raw, etc.) and don't take a b12 supplement. (Anyways fed to farm animals but meat eaters just don't know they are 2nd hand supplementing)
uh oh Vegan... I was reading about how vegans have smaller brains. not sure if that is good or bad, but read up on that. It may work for some people, it did not work for me. I was more sick vegetarian than not. I'm not saying that has anything to do with your depression tendencies... physical, emotional, spiritual... answer is in there. When you listen to your body, what does it say?
@lightbulb27 smaller brains aren't bad. Moms brains shrink to cut out all the grey matter so they will be more alert mothers. Never heard it about vegans but yeah pretty sure that's not a bad thing
You obviously get your data from garbage websites. There's no science whatever suggesting vegans have smaller brains. Eating vegetarian is not healthy and not at all the same as vegan. Eggs and dairy are horrible for you.Listening to your body is again junk not based in science or evidence. - Heroin feels INCREDIBLE. If you "listen to your body" and do heroin because it feels good, you literally destroy your entire life. For fuck's sake man why do I have to explain such basic shit.
Oh yeah and eating meat triples your risk of dementia. Fun.
:) My rule is... if something doesn't work, then change is needed... find that change.I did poorly on strict vegetarian and briefly vegan diet. to each his own, I worked hard at it and it did not work. may work for some.brain size... I lsaw an article that topic the other day, many googles on it... no idea if it is true. There was an article on how brains shrink as a person ages... here's one goldstandardbrain.com/.../...-how-you-stop-it.stml Maybe a small brain is good... I'm not judging. If it works for the person, so be it. I've heard of association of "blood type" to diet as well. I found that to be fairly accurate.
Please don't get data from random blogs. There is far more junk than facts.The NIH website is a better starting place. The blood type diet was a complete scam. Here is a video by a non-profit website run by a medical doctor. nutritionfacts.org/video/blood-type-diet-debunked/There are common reasons people feel a bit off when first trying vegan. Usually either not enough calories or their gut just isn't used to it yet. (Takes a bit of time for the gut bacteria to change.)In the long run there is a hugely reduced risk of disease. https://youtu.be/30gEiweaAVQ
by the way the website you linked makes claims without linking to a single study. You should not trust such articles. And be aware that many articles link to intentionally misleading studies, or misrepresent honest studies.
I watched a bit and already don't buy some of it... about cholesterol. That's a sugar issues to me, my relative was on lifetime meds for cholesterol... changed diet to rid sugar... ate meat/veg... no meds needed, cholesterol normal. Have to be careful what we conclude. I was subscribed to Vegetarian Times, following Neal Barnard, went to the Farm Sanctuary, and in a vegetarian activist group 25 years ago. I'm not against it, more power to them if it works for a person. I had issues, I'm better after I left it. If whale blubber works, then eat that... or sea weed. But if things are not working, then I make change. I had Tofurkey this evening...I thought this was interesting and maybe explains the "shrinkage" is lack of B12. I don't know the truth on all this, if someone can find the truth, they are smarter than me. https://vegfaqs.com/vegan-diet-brain-shrinkage/ Science and medical establishment is wrong too often...point made, I'll stop here... off topic of depression.
Honestly I dont care who puts what in there body as long as there is no second hand effects and people dont claim thats healthy with out proof and backing it up.No all anything diet is healthy.All anything diets are bad , are scams.The only healthy diet is no processed , no perservitives , no gmos , no pestisides , no toxions , no chemicals , no carcinogens , no hormones.Again when it comes to the vegan diet all I have to say is Will Smith's kid.Supplementing isn't healthy either.The human body is ment to eat food and to drink fluids not take supplements.Meat isn't good for you because of the way the animals are treaded , what they are fed.Meat is bad for because of perservitives , chemicals.Eggs aren't good for you because of the way chickens are treated , what they are fed.Eggs are bad for you because of perservitives , chemicals. The human body needs dairy because of vitamin D and calcium ETC.The main source of dairy is chickens and cows.Dairy isn't good for you because of the way cows and chickens are treated , what they are fed.Dairy isn't good for you because of perservitives , chemicals.Vegan has pestisides , chemicals , toxions , carcinogens.If animals were treated and fed right , animals , dairy products wouldn't be bad.If pestisides , chemicals , chemicals , gmos weren't used animals , dairy products wouldn't be bad.
You claim you need evidence, then you talk endless shit without evidence. Animal foods have by far the most pesticides, GMOs (crops fed to animals) carcinogens, and hormones. Vegan food contain zero animal hormones and zero cholesterol, as these are created by bodies, not plants.Will Smith's kid didn't eat well. How about you look at the majority of vegan celebs: Liam hemsworth (Thor), miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Joaquin Phoenix, Lewis Hamilton (6-time f1 world champion), Carl Lowis (9-time olimpic gold medalist - named athlete of the century) - the list is fucking huge. Feel free to Google.Dairy is full of cholesterol, saturated fat and hormones. There are other sources of D and calcium.You get your data from news articles and random Google searches and it shows.Chickens don't make dairy for fucks sake. They are birds and don't even have nipples. This shows just how little you know.You can name chemicals all day long. Fact is, vegans have by far the lowest risk of disease and early death. 100% organic meat eaters still have massive risk of disease and early death.Here is what actual evidence looks like:https://youtu.be/30gEiweaAVQ
I would never put supplements in my body.I would never trust supplements.I dont use google.Plants are grown with pesticides , chemicals , gmos , carcinogens.Every food source has either pesticides or chemicals or gmos or carcinogens or a combination or all of the above.You belive everything celebrities , athletes , public figures say.You can't belive and trust google.Google has censorship.Google surpresses information.Chickens lay eggs which is a dairy product.I never said anything about meat.I only said that all vegan is not healthy.You are singing the praises of vegan and saying Will Smith's kid didn't eat well.but Will Smith's kid ate a vegan diet.
My sleep and meal pattern is off.I dont belive in supplements.I dont drink enough fluids.
If you're surrounded by toxic people, please don't ever talk to them again. Consider them dead. You have every right to cast them out of your life. Your mental health matters.
Yes there is the sad depression which is not a mental illness.There is the weather depression which is not a mental illness.There is trama which is not a mental illness.There is mourning which is not a mental illness.There is grief which is not a mental illness.but there are different depressions that are a mental illness though.The bad thing is we are not always able to get rid of the source.
Yes family which you can't choose , friends , support system
I have depression and anxiety
@Astuma LOL, because almost everyone has those today!! It's how we deal with those things, and maybe talk to others, and friends, and just sort a way to deal with it, in an acceptable way.
I have Reactive depression and it is chronic recurring
@Astuma Yes, unfortunately that can happen. Sorry.
I don't have a shitty life at all so I dont think that's always the case. Some people are naturally depressed
Do you have a great life based on what you deep down always dreamed about as a little girl and your ultimate passions? Or do you have a great life based on what people think and what is typical in society? Thats the question, and its not one you might even be able to answer. But really think about it.
My life is beyond perfect for what I imagined it to be as a child
Some days I feel like I have already achieved everything I came to earth to do and it makes me feel like I'm ready to die. So I think that's what pushes the suicidal thoughts
So you have no goals? Everything is perfect and you have nothing left to do? I don't buy that for an instant. But ok keep lying to yourself.
Bamesjond0069 there’s no need to be so aggressive. I used to agree with you, I somewhat agree, but sometimes you have no idea what you want or what you want is impossible to achieve. I know from experience...
Yeah pretty much no goals. I have no desires to work or anything. I want a few more kids but I already have two so that is kind of a goal but not really cuz I'm content with this point in my life with everything that I have going on
@ThatGuy123456789 that doesn't change the fact you aren't having a fulfilling life
I fulfilled my life as much as I could. And it still wasn’t enough
Having no goals , no desires can be depressing
@Astuma exactly. Thats exactly their problem. I also suspect its more but thats really sad to have no reason to live. Id be depressed too.
Someone doesn't need goals to be happy. I live for my childern and that is a enough to keep me going. Litterally not once in my life have I had a goal and that is not what is making me depressed
That explains so much. You can't see the forest for the trees. Its so obvious to me but i know its not easy to see it in yourself.
Thats why I said can be depressing
You don't have to though.
@EnglundUberAlles what do you mean I don't have to?
You don't have to learn to live with it. There are treatments available.
@EnglundUberAlles that's true for some forms of depression. You can cure them permanently. But some forms are not permanently curable so you have to permanently medicate it and learn how manage it or in other words "live with it"
That's true too.
Yes I think Generic was trying to say that manage is just a nicer way of saying live with it.Meaning manage and live with it means the same thing
Not just the form but also the cause of depression
Even if you know the root cause you may not be able to do anything about it
True, but it CAN be overcome. I've overcome depression, and I've seen others overcome it too, so it can be beat.
Yes if it has to do with your day to day life making changes may or may not be enough or even help but yes its always worth a try though.
Uh huh sure. I had depression before I got married and had kids
Blame the people that start the wars, not the people who are forced to fight them.
@msc545 forced my ass KID. Forced MY ASS, PUNK, LITTLE BOY! In life, we make these things called "choices". At least once upon a time, one could possibly see the relevance between fighting a war and protecting our people, nowadays, that is a FUCKING JOKE
You would b surprised at the number of people who graduate high school, can't hack college or dislike it, can't find a job or can only can find a demeaning one, and wind up enlisting in the service. I call that a soft version of being forced.Please explain to me the relevance of killing Iraqis or Afghans in terms of "protecting our people". Particularly the very large numbers of civilians killed in those countries. Also, call me more names, and I will block and report you. Try to act and write like an adult please.
@msc545 a soft version of being forced? Get the fuck out of my face you pathetic cuck bitch. He made a choice, whether you think it's bad or good, at least admit that. 'a soft version of being forced' just fuck off with that shit
You seem to have a lot of problems with anger. Get some help.
@msc545 being angry at a fucked up world isn't MY problem bitch boy. Ignorance in the face of blunt truth is what angers me. Pure, willful ignorance, with no desire to evolve from that point. You think it is wrong to be angry being surrounded by such idiots? I've had it with this shit. I'm in a bad fuckin mood today, it's all just too real. I've just fking had it with this shit. Just show me some desire to learn! Some spark of a soul somewhere inside you, please!!! Don't you FEEL ANYTHING?
No one has been forced to join the military or fight wars since Vietnam.No war that the U. S. was involved in was necessary for the U. S. to be involved in except for the Revolutionary war.All other wars that the U. S. was involved was the 1% elite wars that the U. S. had no business being involved in.
Situational depression has stigma , jugment , ignorance.There needs to be more education when it comes to situational depression as well.
You gotta wanna help yourself and some people dont want to... i def dont think its an illness... its temporary but its up to you as to how long you stay depressed
What are you talking about? You don’t know women or what they go through to judge them. Whether you’re male or female you can get hit with depression regardless of your age. There’s this thing called a psychiatrist and they determine if you have it or not. Not some sexist man on the internet
@Powderpuff97 shut the fuck up. Our ancestors went through literal hell and there was no such thing as depression. You have literally an entire system catering to your vagina and you still are unhappy. How stupid women are holy shit! It's heaven on earth for you and you still virtue signal about depression to claim more white knights, more right and more money. It's never enough for you.
That's not cool to say. Depression effects both genders! Not one gender has it easier then the other, we all have our struggles
You don't have any struggles. You don't have any problems. you're just virtue signalling for more money and more privileges. Shut up and live. All you do is be pretty and you get everything served. Thats why women believe that things just happen. You never appreciate what others give to you and you're too lazy to do anything yourselves. Everyone is serving your vagina.
I have plenty of struggles in my life. I have two childern that I fully take care of by myself. I dont just have my struggles to worry about but I'm worrying about two others struggles as well. And ain't no one serves me because I have a pussy
Yeah right keep bullshitting us. You don't have special laws in your country serving you just because you have a vagina plus your kids which I don't believe that you have. Thats just another fairy tale that helps you play the victim. Women always love to share only a fraction of information in order to spin the story however they need in their favour. All of a sudden she has kids. ok lol
I do have kids, they are 5 and 2. Almost everyone on this site that knows me knows about my kids
and you're still complaining. You dont get benefits for having kids right? Women will always be unhappy no matter what. Give them the entire cosmos and they will complain again about depression while men working their ases off to pay for everything. It fuckin pisses me off.
I see the benefits of having children but that doesn't mean that its easy to do what I do everyday for them. Lots of women get depression from giving birth its acutally really common. It's something that happens naturally from the chemicals in the brain changing. It's not because life is bad or anything like that
holy shit what a bunch of nonsense! I thank stupid women like yourself for convincing to stay single and never provide for your vagina anything. Neither am I tipping any bitches working at cafes and bars. I only tip to men who have to pay extra taxes for all the benefits your vagina gets.
I'm not single 😆😆
It depends on your family which you can't choice , your friends , your support system
That is if you're talking about actual depression, not depressive episodes. The latter can absolutely be overcome.
Thank you 😊
Lack of action which happens when you become depressed can cause you to become even more depressed.There isn't always lack of action befor you become depressed.
@Astuma You interpret your failure as ultimate, and that is your illusion.
@Astuma You only get the same results by keeping doing the same.If you go to the gym and start lifting weights daily it's impossible for the muscle not to grow.If the muscle doesn't grow is because you don't go to the gym. Muscle doesn't care about who you are, or how shitty your family life has been.
That is called not being prpared , being over welmed , worrying
