Yes, and I was kidding Doc.
Between March 3rd 2009 - May15 2010 I lost both my grandparents, one of my ex ROTC students, and my baby sister.
But life goes on ....... best way to honor the memory of those who are gone is live a good honorable life.
Best way to get over depression is to stay active and busy...... depression feeds off lethargy.
Why don't you PM me later. I'm leaving the house now but I'll be back in a few hours EDT.
It depends, is it situational because of the death of a family member, or is it long term? If it is the former, you can probably just deal with it naturally, once the initial pain goes, then the depression is gone.
If it is long term, then probably some meds will assist.
It's a little of both to be honest.
Go search for "Don't Worry, Be Happy" song. You already even know it?
It's a great song. It means something to that helps me, and lots of other people.
I disagree with that. It's non-stop thinking for me when I'm working out.
it depends on how long the depression has last. If it has been more than two weeks it diagnosed as major depression but if it has been over 2 years than it is dysthymia. Either way the symptoms are loss of apetite, sleep, interest in things you had before, etc. SRI medication can help but talking to a licensed therapist to get to the root of your depression is the key. He/she should assess for your safety first. Hope this helps.
Tomorrow is gonna be brutal.
Id love to have the problems now that I thought I had when I was 18. Def seek professional help, cause lifes problems dont get better in time.
I'd love to have the problems you thought you and when you were 18 too.
So, grief is a big trigger for my depression.
Someone at my work lost her mother. She asked me if it got better. I said, I don't want to lie to you. It's going to take a long while and even then you won't get over it. For me, like Mash, losing a child was worse than anything I can imagine though.
Stick it out, man. I think this will get better.
It's okay to mourn... it takes about a year to get through it for those that are close to you...
I'm neither small nor weak by any means. It took at least that much time when I lost my dad last year, still not over it fully, but I am better... I lost my grandmother this morning (my last grandparent), but I will get through that as well...
Hang in there...
Sorry about your grandma man. I lost mine a few years ago. She was actually the only grandparent I ever knew. There's been a lot of deaths in the family for me, but I'll find a way to get through this just like I did with the other tragedies.
Seek professional help. Seriously. Counseling/therapy.
Agree. As well-intentioned as we are here, you should seek out professional help. There is no shame in it, it's a good first step to better days.
Also someone suggested getting in shape - couldn't agree more, there is only upside to that.
My other 2 cents would be turn off the tv if you watch a lot - it's honestly wasting time watching genetic sitcoms or all these sick crime/murder shows that fill the airways, etc...it's like Cheetos for the brain, may taste good but no nutritional value. And those CBS crime shows as just disturbing - what is wrong with ppl that these are top rated shows?
Best advice I have gotten is "garbage in, garbage out" - if you are consuming bad stuff it's just no good...your mid is stewing on junk.
Finally, get off the Internet - it's a classic way to avoid human contact.
No offense intended to anyone and if I presumed something off apologies, hope this advice helps and you get going in right direction .
Close the thread. He's no longer with us.
I pray this was a joke. Poor judgment. Not a joke type of thread. Way too many have gone down that road. Hope the best for you C&LF. I am not going to post my experience here but I will send you a note.
PS... Stay away from depressants such as alcohol...
