I do take my advice well for the most part.

My depression is honestly a unique/ rare case.

My depression lies from the source of how other people treat those around me and how those with Aspergers Syndrome and Autism etc are treated (including me)

I was suicidal once and it was because i lost the only person who ever cared and being different is hard when society treats people like your own kind as freaks.

That being said i do believe the solution to my depression is to help others who are suffering like me and work to change how people treat those with Aspergers and those around me.

Knowing there are people out there being bullied or killed just because they were born with there brain forming differently...really messes me up inside.


When i think about it me being depressed is mostly due to unfortunate circumstances and things beyond my own control and being over empathetic towards people like me.

Still i'm not so depressed anymore i have my moments but for the most part i'm super happy


Your depression isn't a rare case.

You can't choose what hits you, but you can always choose how to take it.

Seems like you're trying at least, sorta, but some is better than none.




Well rare case isn't the right word.

I take what hits me well but i'm an emotional person so i take everything to heart even if it's not my own problem.
If i saw someone crying on the side walk i would probably go over and cry with them i'm that kind of guy

I'm also hypersensitive. I cried for hours today and my head aches like a bitch right now. Life is what life is. That doesn't make you depressed though. Depression is very different from being often 'sad' or sensitive. It makes you physically ill.

Even being suicidal is not the same as being depressed.

I'm not sure you're even depressed by your description.

Diagnosed as depressed and see a psychologist for it.

Trust me i am i'm just alot better then i used to be.

I know the physical illness feeling you speak of far to well..so many times have i just not been able to function which lead to me missing school and refusing to work.


I might not seem it but i do/did have depression and for a while back i was suicidal and just wanted to rot away i never left my room much and just wanted to feel pain and nothing else.

My life has been an emotionally bumpy ride which has left me kind of numb in a sense.

Not sure if i'm depressed anymore or just over emotional now but alot of the time i do feel like i used to and just want to give up on everything in my life and just be dead and gone from the world

Perhaps you're better now. As in cured and just clinging on to it.

The physical illness isn't a feeling. I meant physical illness. Like blacking out, loss of weight, and such.

Ah gotcha and yeah i honestly feel im in between cured and depressed myself i feel on the verge.

To be honest the only physical illness i ever got from depression was also due to stress.

But i gained so much weight due to depression and eating to cope ( you brought weight up and it reminded me)

There is a solution for all of this. Join the fight against ISIS. If/when you return you will value your life after seeing those around you having their heads blown off and bleed to death. You will no longer suffer from depression but PTSD so your depression will be cured.

PTSD and depression can feed off of one another, truth me you don't want PTSD or depression, I have lost more friends to the demons in their heads than i did to Afghanistan.

I know this was after i was depressed that i became suicidal...when i was depressed i just didn't give a shit about anything i let the world go past me i did nothing for so long and just didn't function to the point my parents got worried and eventually i was diagnosed with depression kind of like my best friend who has depression.

I'm not suicidle anymore or depressed i guess but i still give up and just think about being gone and not putting any effort into life anymore the thought of just locking myself in a room and never leaving.

Honestly i would prefer to do that but it's impracticable.

But it would be amazing to never talk to another person again and become a shut in imo.

That sounds more accurate. So you're starting to get it a bit. You're not depressed anymore, you were, but you're not now. Being sensitive is rough, but it opens good doors for empathy and intuition. You best not label your sensitivity a mere side effect of 'depression', as it's just simply part of your personality. It's not a bad trait when used positively. So long as you view it a problem, it shall be.

And you can be, especially having come out of it instead of being in it.

It's the difference between the old you talking to someone and present you talking to someone. There's a very clear distinction and I assure the present one could help someone a lot more.

Most of the problems that people have are stuff you can't just suck it up nor have fixes.


Thats the biggest cop-out I've ever heard, Tell uncle chrono your problem and I'll tell you how to fix it. 90% of your problems can be fixed with your own 2 feet.


It's not a cop-out its true alot of people have problems that can't be fixed.

For example one friend of mine her family doesn't care about her and despises her.

Not something you can fix and it's not something you can just "Suck it up" about.


Most things are fixable but it's not always the case that they are.
If everything was fixable 99% of us wouldn't be depressed or suicidal in the first place because we would have already have solved our problems.



My depression stems from my financial situation (something i can't help due to employment where i live) and a lack of friends in real life ( due to where i live) and being unable to move out of town.

Also the fact that i have disabilities that make my life terrible and are stuff i can't just fix or suck it up.

I have Aspergers which means i can't socialize properly and function differently and cope differently it's not something that can be fixed and to "Suck it up" is something i already do on a daily basis and i'm still depressed and have suicidal thoughts.

You can change a problem if it stems at you but when the problem is Society itself and the treatment of people who are like you there isn't much you can do.


You are absolutely refusing to see a solution and using your misfortune as a crutch.
Thats a near perfect example of a cop-out


Fact 1: Its safe to say almost all people in the world have or will suffer financial problems(including me)

Fact 2: A real life friend is within walking distance of anyone posting on this tread.

Fact 3: Disabilities are a tool to express your greatness after the fact.

Fact 4: Aspergers is not absolute(tough to deal with but not impossible)

Fact 5: You are far from trapped in your tiny little world.

Of course these only become fact if you decide to put forth some effort.

PrinceJudar understands this perfectly I feel

I knew someone from college with Aspergers that passed, has friends and is happily working at a IT firm right now. It wasn't easy for him but he assimilated very well.

The machine called society suck major hind teat. It starts war, charges us ridiculous taxes to pay for them, expects me to fight in them when I have no interest in protecting the machine called society. Take your Machine called society and fix all of its problems and maybe we'll speak about me rejoining it. Till then I'll live here out on the fringes with my fellow anime fans. I'll pay my bills and work my job but society ain't getting anything else out of me till it proves itself worthy of my full effort.

Fact 1: of course thats true
Fact 2: False my only friend is not within walking distance :P
Fact 3/4 : Aspergers is absolute but doesn't make life impossible never said it did
Fact 5: Of course i'm not a big fan of the outside world i prefer to lock myself away from society as it annoys me personally isolation makes me happier.

My problem stems from the fact that society wants you to be social personally i prefer jobs where i can shut up and do my thing i think talking to people in general is a waste of time.

As soon as i finish my studying i plan to eventually work from home or in an office where i can lock myself away in isolation :)


I don't plan to be a big part of society i want little to nothing to do with society as it is.
