I can relate to you mate, a very interesting read. I can think of an incident today, my friend came over and i was feeling 'okay' but then he said something meaningless and jokey i took it the wrong way and started to slide down that rocky hill of feeling shit and down.

This is what i hate most about depression, the sudden turn from having a great day/few days feeling everything is getting better, only to end up at the bottom of an ever steepening hill that seems to be turning into a mountain.

about the job thing to, i can't hold down jobs for long, being the quiet withdrawn type always being lost in my thoughts doesnt exactly make u feel welcomed within a company, i just want to be Mr Joe Average with a Job to get by and not a care in the world, but its not to be at this point in time.

Quote:

Is this just another test, an attempt to make me stronger in the longer run? Or am I just leading myself on to more mysery in a psychological masochistic desire to not get better? That's depression speaking.




I think this to, like am i really trying enough to get better or am i sub-conciously making my self worse or not trying hard enough with a lack of wanting to get better.

Do you find that you dwell on the same things all the time? The same stupid things that most people would let slip by and not take a second thought about.

Well if that don't make any sense then thats my mind wandering while i type and losing track of wha im going on about. All i can say is, i know how you feel. :frown:

Hi, my gf is a depressive with heavy mood swings. I am almost completely opposite, which is not always as good as it sounds. Try admitting how great you think your life is to someone who is seeking therapy and see how tough it can be. We have however learned to complement each other in many ways. Her pessimism counterbalances my optimism and makes us both stronger.

I would really encourage everyone to steer away from chemical solutions to emotional imbalances. Besides changing a brain chemistry we don't understand, they can replace negative experiences we need to grow as individual. Without these much needed "valleys" we can't define define the peaks or the plains. Our body is a marvelous undiscovered organism that may be guiding us along the right path even if at times the travel seems difficult.

sorry to hear you've had no luck with any meds

I'm mildly hypomanic, and im on lithobid with 100% success...swing and a miss for some, and a home run for others, you know how it is.
anyways, keep on truckin, you'll find your thing eventually, drug or activity, or whatever to keep you balanced :smile:

i relate to you man, i was reading your post and i swear that i could have wrote that, i think i have the same "disorder" as you , i havent went to anyone to find out because it feels like i'll get looked down upon as some guy with a disorder , i dont know.

i'll be talking to someone and totally forget what i'm saying mid-sentance and have to ask what i was talking about, thats when i'm in a good mood but when i've hit rock bottom and have suicidal thoughts or thoughts just wishing it would go away i dont ever feel like speaking at all.

It realy does get annoying, one day i can be so hyper and talkitive,and feel like i'm on top of the world and nothin can drag me down and just one little thing can totally change the course of the day, i have so many feelings inside me evryday always changing and its realy frightening sometimes. does anyone know wot could be up? i'm not looking for sympathy i just want to know whats up without goin to get help.thanx
