  • I guess it depends on the severity. I had mild depression from losing what I considered the best job ever. However with me, I feel sad, never left bed, hardly bathed, didn't feel like eating... but sometimes people feel like killing themselves. Mine only lasted few months. To tame it , I tried getting out of the house and doing some hobbies, even a little shopping. Talking to friends and family helped the most tho. I really dont believe in anti depression meds unless you are suicidal.

    • Honestly, I wish I had the gift to overcome those depressing chains of life. I can't even bring myself to do those things.

    • Show All
    • just try to get away from home as much as possible. It won't do any good

    • thanks for the MHO :)

  • a girl

  • Most of my depression comes from comparing myself to other men. I escape it by channeling that sadness into something productive.

    • I'm like that too, "he looks better than I do", "Lucky guy", "I wish I was like him".
      And when people say stuff like this I'm always supportive.

  • My family left because I'm going through a divorce, only thing that helps is to talk to other guys at work that have been through it and my brother, a lot of times I will just watch action movies when I'm alone
