A lot of people don't seem to get what depression is like, so I'll try n' cut it out for you:
Imagine a graph, curving up and down as your moods swing. They might range from ecstatic at hearing your favourite song at the right time, or getting to hang out with a friend you really like, to being stuck in the rain without an umbrella waiting for the bus, to much worse things I wont mention.
Then imagine if you took that whole graph, and moved it way down south. Anything but the utmost intense peaks would sink into a murk of the bottommost feeling. It's like your whole emotional spectrum is set 5 shades of black too far down.
You know the slidey bar when adjusting brightness in games? It's kinda like that, except you can't adjust it. And it's not just a matter of getting someone else to do it either.

So if you don't understand what it's like, please understand that you don't.

tl;dr., if you think you know an easy fix to depression, you don't know what depression is.
And sorry if this points already been made. Just needed to get it off my chest.

No one in my house is allowed to "feel depressed" because my dad is a hardass ex marine who legitimately believes that mental illnesses only happen to weak minded people and that they should just get over them. Having to act like everything is okay all the time is a skill i learned early. And it sucks.

I have/had it too, but the other day my friend attempted suicide and went into hospital
I don't want to be like that
so I have to go on the antidepressants
I hope it gets easier

Me and some classmates have a daily study group in the library at school and there's a lot of days where I'm awake for several hours in bed but can't get up and I end up missing the study group. They ask me where I was at and I always come up with some ******** excuse. Good news is that I attended the last one so I got a 93 on my Biochem test.

Same here man, but instead of faking I was ok I started smoking tons of weed, thinking it would make me feel better. My parents caught me because i was stupid about it. I started getting counselling, and I've been on a regiment of Zoloft ever since.

Do meds work? The way I see it, my symptoms are part of me. I hallucinate, and it's become so common to see strange beams of light and auras around people, it feels weirder to not see it. Of course I hate it, and it disturbs me, but I'm so used to it, if I lost that, would I really feel better?
#151 to #145 - bloater (11/22/2013) [-]
Idk man, my brain wasn't that 						******					 up. My meds work for me, but the side-effects at first can be really bad at first. The first week I was on them was like i had eaten nothing but Taco Bell and shards of glass. But after that initial week or month of not feeling too good they kick in and make you feel somewhat normal.

I mean, is it strange to loose a bit of your personality?  My brain isn't so 						******					 up, I don't think, at least I'm not incapacitated.   
The most difficult patch for me right now is convincing myself I have issues.  Of course it's not normal, I don't hear people talking about glowing and auras and worshiping a 						*******					 tree demon, but I still can't get myself to believe that I have an issue.  It's a constant argument.  I'll wake up one day, convinced I'm fine and normal, the next I'm sure it's just a natural thing, or it's part of being young or something.  Even though I know it's not true, I can't convince myself of that.   
Also, MFW somebody suggests seeing a shrink.  They think they 						*******					 know what it's like to talk to a man who thinks you are 						*******					 lying to their face.

Yeah i wouldn't recommend ever going to a shrink. Ever. I also never really thought i lost a part of myself, but it's mainly because i had depression that developed over a few years. My parents only took me to a shrink because they thought i was addicted to the 						**********					, and the therapy was mainly for my mom to feel good rather than me getting help.    
   
Inb4 my parents are 						*******					 retarded

I hate that feeling. I don't know what I suffer, but I get hallucinations and I think I have OCD tendencies but I really can't know. There's a point at which I've almost fallen in love with my symptoms. I feel fear from my hallucinations, but without them I'm lost. So I just get used to it. I don't ever get past it, over it, nor do I get a break from it. I get used to it. I hide it. It's gotten to the point where I can't talk about it without lying. My brother asked me about it (he has depression and OCD, he understands this stuff), and I lied to his face. I didn't feel proud, but I lied. I don't know why, but the only time talking ever helped me was... well, never.

If you're not going to get help, you don't deserve it.
User avatar #126 - TheHutchie (11/22/2013) [-]
Nobody can help you if you don't let them.

Faking isn't ever going to solve anything about your depression.
