That last line could show you may (emphasis on the may part) have something wrong with you. Eg low sugar levels or a stuffed thyroid or low testosterone. Have you had a bloodtest for thyroid and testosterone levels? If so did the levels come back ok?

The first line actually goes against most medical research which shows exercise can combat mild forms of depression better then any medication or other costly things.
Then again it does depend on type of exercise.

For anyone who feels down

A 30-50min walk every few days is all that is required.
Have a dog and walk that. (you will also likely bond with the dog which will likely see your mood increase as well.)
Don't have a dog ask someone near by if you can walk theirs. (you might even make some money from it.)
If you are allergic to dogs pretend you are walking a ghost/invisible hypoallergenic dog.
If you stop on a park bench and look at the clouds that is fine. (though don't count time spent on a bench in your walk. So no 1 min walk and 49mins on a bench ) Also avoid the temptation of a sugary treat/drink on the way home too.

If you go to the Gym/whatever and end up a super tired and a puddle on the floor due to the extreme long work out that isn't likely going to help things. You still need to keep the happy chemicals in your brain if you tire yourself out then they get replaced with the 'I want sleep chemicals.' So too much can be bad. So like all things moderation. :)

Crunchyroll doesn't seem to be the best place to search for this sort of thing.

Generally this is untrue, obviously everyone is different and each person has their own feelings doing certain things.
http://www.webmd.com/depression/guide/exercise-depression#1 this explains that a little bit.

When I go to the gym a few times per week I feel way better in general. A feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction eventhough I am quite the downer as a person.




Well of course in general but i said it "CAN" not that it would.

I'm just putting the possibility out there as people seem to always reject the idea that exercise may not always help.
When i goto the gym i feel tired, bored , unsatisfied and just sore i only do it because exercise helps keep the mind healthy.

Low testosterone levels and thyroid levels i'm medicated for both.
Its true exercise can do that but what people forget to realize is that not everyone is the same for some people it actually just makes them feel more depressed this is not very common at all but i try to do my part to remind people that exercise may not help everyone (just because i have had the whole "exercise shtick my life and i exercise 30 minutes - 1-2 hours a day by running.

I goto the gym and walk outside mostly never to the point that i get tired though haha

I think you need to talk to your parents, get outside or take a step back to look at what you really want. I was in the same hole too, I had caring parents but I was too scared to tell my grades or tell them I don't wanna go to school since I felt academically stressed and had some other issues going on.

College is a lot of money, if you're gonna drop out I think it's a dumb decision. However, keep in mind college isn't for everyone, but if you want a degree, take a leave of absence cause trust me getting a good gpa leaves a lot of doors open.

Also, I had talked to professionals and they always give me some typically coping mechanisms, like read book which I'm not an avid reader. Sometimes, you have to drag yourself to do things that you really don't want to even if it's emotionally exhausting. However, it feels good to complete something and I know it mostly feels like you're not getting anywhere at all.

It's important to pace yourself and I know it seems bad right now but it does get better.

There's two websites I'll mention, which often have helped me in difficult times.

For general ranting/letting-out-stress: Muttr
For talking to another person (free) or to an actual professional (costs $, but the free option works well): BlahTherapy

I think you should just find someone good to talk to, or talk to your parents. Crunchyroll isn't really the place to find a therapist. You might find someone who shares the same experiences and feelings that you do, but that doesn't necessarily mean they can help you through your problems. As I have said in some of your other posts I suffer from severe depression myself. Have since I was a little kid. Now I don't see anyone about it due to personal reasons but I can tell you that a professional therapist can do more for you than a random person on the internet.

why is everyone so focused on internet creeps or pervs or getting an actual therapist.....
if we take the time to write to this woman who is reaching out for help. Maybe we should take the time and make it better served listening to what she wants to get off her chest, and seeing if one of us could relate or actually give some advice. Who's to say one of us cant help her find what it is she needs in her life to fill those feelings with something positive and motivational. We never know unless we try, nobodies perfect, yeah you might run into weird people along this route of things, but I like weird people. So with that said....

I dont know if I could help you much, but I'm willing to listen and give you my honest advice, and try my best... And I'm sure if i can't help, theirs someone else here who can.
Is there someone you talk too this with about already in your immediate non-online life? just talking about what stresses you out to someone, whom you feel comfortable enough to speak truthfully too, like a best friend, can really help.... some times you dont need advice just someone who will truly listen?
Or a physical outlet, jogging/working out, or going to a chiropractor and/or massage therapist... to help release the toll stress has put on you physically throughout these slumps you find yourself in....

I hope this helps, and I am willing to really listen to whatever it is you feel you want to talk about, but cant guarantee that I could help or even give good advice, all I could honestly guarantee is that I'll try my best.

Don't look for answers from other people. Find your own peace of mind through introspection. If you can't, it's because you're not looking through enough perspectives.
