I was nearly anorexic. 5'11" and 120 lbs. Probably doesn't count, but I'm like 30 lbs more now, so I'm good.

Stopped eating meat, hilariously enough. Also, apparently consuming all the caffeine in the Universe cheers me up!


I had the same problem in HS I was 70 lbs and 5'7...I'm glad my friends noticed and helped me.

I have learned to block most things out of my mind that might depress me. I decided to not give a shit anymore. Its weird. But what do you do when its already done. Or I think hard about it and come to a conclusion as to why It happend and what can make it better than turn block on lol. As for other depressions that I have felt in the passed for no reason....I just try to cheer myself up and think positive.

Depression set in a year or two after I got my current job.

I am still in a constant mind numbing state of depression with no will to change. I am apathetic about life and everyone in it, my emotions have left me and I'm not sure if they'll return.

I get around this by keeping myself busy with hobbies that hold little importance in real life. Music helps, funny tv shows, anime, video games, smoking marijuana, shit like that. I immerse myself into an alternate universe because I dislike the one I am currently a part of. I've not developed any eating disorders or self abusing problems, but I am definitely an insomniac. I normally sleep 2 hours a day and i usually fall asleep in the afternoon.

I actually suffer from dysthymia, which is a constant low-grade depression. I have tried to kill myself in the past, but they were so ineffectual that nobody even noticed that I tried to take my own life. Now I just have no hope in real life. I tried taking medication for a year, but it just didn't work or had violent side effects.

I tried therapy, but only one or two of them really helped and both of them stopped seeing me due to moving on. By the same token, I had a couple of group of friends that helped lift my mood a bit, but they all moved on as well; as I probably felt closer to them than they did to me, we haven't been in touch.

If anything currently helps me, it's looking forward to things. Anything form big things (such as going to conventions), to small things (such as a weekly open tabletop game or a new episode of an anime). Also, I know that I have family members that care about me.

I had depression for about 7 years or so, not deep but the kind where I had shut down all emotions. No happiness, no sadness, only a empty feeling if even that.
The one thing that did help me was a course called "Depression mastering", not really group therapy and for some it doesn´t work but for me it was very useful.

I dealt with depression for about a year after a girl I was planning to propose to cheated on me and broke my heart.

Other than that I've dealt with addiction issues my entire life, addiction runs in my family.

I still do, though I probably don't feel the worst I ever had but at the moment it's not great.

My emotions were mutilated a long time ago, whatever remains of them have been hit with pill after pill after pill.
All they did was give me side effects that were harder to deal with.
One made wake up soon after sleep with adrenaline blasting trough my veins. Insomnia is not a fun or manageable side effect.
Another made me stop caring about everything.
One made we wake up in a cold sweat. Was the grossest feeling, like waking up in a pile of slime.
All in all though, none of them gave me what was lacking. It's not like economic prosperity comes in a gel tablet. Nor can any chemical reverse betrayal.

It's pretty much what you say though, they aren't looking for anything more than a pill to put you on, so they can have a good number of patients ensuring their own job security.
To be fair I've seen other people on pills who've gotten a better hold on their lives, but at the same time, it was also due to a change in their circumstances that was outside their control. I've also seen it when a friend on pills had his circumstances worsen, and he killed himself : \

I don't take anything now, but some of those side effects take months to subside. If taking pills have any benefit, it seems to be a placebo or else something that my body becomes increasingly resistant to.

I have social anxiety, paranoia and pretty much a tendency to escape in solitude to get away from people, worst has to be anxiety though, that's really causing depression and I don't know how to get rid of it, tried meditating and breath control etc but no luck.

I'm really sorry about your friend. I hate taking medication, so that's why I stopped all together. The last thing I took had me behaving like a zombie, dead and uncaring. I actually believe my condition improved by not taking medication and instead doing natural, less expensive ways in which to control my depression and anxiety. I still have my days, but they're not as bad as they were before.
