I haven't, but I'm glad you're feeling better!
WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE PIT A FUCKING METALCORE KID

ya. i was reeeellly depressed last month and then i joined theater at my school and i made a ton of really cool friends and got a girlfriend. sometimes i think it just takes a good amount of people who are nice to make things look positive.
#4
yeah, when my friend died...
i felt completely mortal and like a waste of space...
i couldn't even find the energy to kill myself man, i would lie in bed and i almost got fired...

true depression is the worst thing you could ever go through and i wouldnt even wish it on my worse enemy...

glad you're feeling better though...

I'm not trying to be negative, but you should really consider seeing a psychotherapist. It may just be puberty, depending on how old you are, but it could also be something much more serious. If the these long-term mood swings are common for you, I would see somebody about it.
#6
im glad you feel better man. and i agree, what i felt a few years ago, i wouldnt wish on my worst enemy.
#7
Good to hear your feeling better. I had a small streek of it, not like I am some amazing expert on it, but I did get over it, it just took some support from my friends...

I'm glad to hear it man, I know what it's like, it's hard to get "yourself" back, if you know what I mean. I'm also glad to see that some ignorant little prick hasn't come in and spammed this thread (yet). It kinda restores my faith in (UG) humanity.
#11
I'm rather depressed at the moment. I'm not quite sure why though which is really bugging me. Sucks...But well done on overcomming it.

I'd definately advise anyone just to talk it out with a really close friend or relative, it may be regarded by some as the "soft" way and you may not see a point in it, but it really does help. You should also try and find a social outlet, whether that be playing guitar with your mates (my outlet ), going out with your mates or join some sort of youth group thing. Whatever gets you out of the house and getting to chat with folk your own age who you like the company of is what I found best.

im kind of depressed now actaully.

what made you go out of depression?
#21
From what I've gathered from friends that have gone through it, one of the most important things is will power.

A lot of times you don't really want to get better. You're sick of feeling this way, but you're too stubborn to really fight against it.

Convincing yourself that you have to get out and start living a normal life again is great. Talking is supposed to help, although I fail to see how in some cases.

Finding something to distract you works great, but will only help temporary if you don't try to get yourself better either.
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!

I've been feeling pretty shitty for the past couple weeks. I feel like a waste of skin and my self esteem has taken a giant nose-dive, once again. I've lost 25 pounds aswell, which I know isn't all too healthy.
#23
I used to get bullied alot when I was at school, LIKE ALOT. It got to the point where people used to spit in my face or on my jacket, right infront of me. I use to come home very depressed and upset. Because, im not a fighter, I darent, I was the smallest kid right up until the end of secondary school.

My dad used to be ashamed of me, that made it worse I geuss. Glad those days are over now.

I go through phases a lot,Ive suffered from depression in spells for the past 5 years I would say.A lot of the time you dont realise how depressed you are until it ends.The great thing is when you jus crack and let it all out.Normally after that I feel great but when I reach that point I can never tell when its gonna happen.

well i guess i sort of had, but my girlfriend has been though alot more depression then me. i mean, the only reason why shes at my school is because last year at her old school, people threatened her, stoned her with rocks and cussed at her....just for being jewish. i mean, that just pisses me off cause i love her alot and i cant belive she had to go thourgh that, no one should just because of their religion. and theres alot more that shes been though, but thats just a glimpse of it.

yea..depression is contaguious in a way..

thats pretty much how i got out i think. I was talking to 2 of my really good friends and they were talking me through it and telling me everything thats good that i have to live for haha one of my friends was like "u cant play guitar in heaven no point killing yourself" and basically after a MAJOR breakdown and a couple stressful issues out of my way it basically left

ah, it was the worse thing in the world, seriously.

it's ok to just feel a it "meh, im feeling lonley" depressed or "why does no one understand me?" depressed.

but when youve got people physically making a point of it, its not good, especially when your a kid. The reason for all this?, I look forigen. That is all.

It all turned around for me very quickly about 3 years ago though, very very strange day. I used to have a massive afro, and everyone at school ( especially the girls) were fasinated by this massive Jew fro. So my mate says did I want to go to his house party. I ended up getting trashed, and fell asleep on the couch, like you do.

I woke up with this crowd of people sat round me giggling, and my nose was full of cider, and my eyes were stinging like mad. They had been pouring drink into me while I was out. Not only stupid, but very dangerous as i could have choked and no one would have known.

All I remember was waking up on the kitchen floor with people laughing at me, and a electric shaver buzzing against my head. I just all of a sudden sobererd up, and just stood up and laughed, turned round to the kid with the shaver and WHACK, i floored him. Everyone just took a step back and there was this kid on the floor with a black eye. Noone thought I was capable of going crazy. I remeber shouting "who the **** was holding me!?"

The kid go up after a couple of guys helped him up, he said "aw im sorry..." and whack, right back in my teeth with his fist, I kinda just stood there for about 5 seconds, and then just fell over again.

I could hear girls screaming and a few guys going "Did you just ****ing do that!?"

I woke up with beer down my neck and glass in my hair, went dark again

It seemed like an hour, when all I could hear was my old school mate saying "Nicky, you alright, Nicky, wakeup, oi!" etc

and then these 4 chavs dragged my by my legs outside and proceeded to absoultly kick the shit out me, I couldnt breathe for about 5 minutes, walked around with no shirt and realised what i had done. walked out down the street with my mate carrying my cos I was limping, my dad just pulled up and said "what the hell has he done now?", My mate explained to my dad what had happened, and my dad thought it was kind of funny

I managed to get home from a lift from my dad, and we dropped of my mate in his village, he took me for a walk to calm me down at like 2 oclock in the morning. I wont forget it.

About 3 months later my mate, who held the party told me what had happened, and said he didnt think Id stand up to everyone like i did. Turns out I had maimed, injured, attacked about 8 people in the party, all of whom were involved in the incident. yeah, shaving hairs no big deal, it grows, but it is when you have no sense of reasoning, proportion or judgment. And it was brought upon themselves that they try to take advantage of me.

No one ever pushed me, spat on me, swore at me, some darent even look at me!

All I can say is, dont drink too much at a party cos people will make a twat of you, and every dog has its day!

I spent all summer being totally miserable and most of the school year so far too, ive only started cheering up within the last month or two and i still have really moody and overemotional moments, but ah well i guess.

And to Nick Dixon that sounds like a horrible experience, im sorry you had to go through that

I'm back, you douchebags.

I can safely say from my experience as well,alcohol only makes things 100x times worse,trust me.Its the cause of problems not the cure.

People talk about depression like you're either depressed or you're not. How do you come out of depression? What changes in your life that makes you feel better? I'm really interested.
#38
I'm having my first true streak of depression right now... and everyone is noticing it, and I'm about to get thrown in counseling, and it SUCKS. I don't think that will help... the best advice I recieved to get out of it was to try getting out of the house, taking walks, moving around. Do anything but mope around, that just keeps you depressed. So far all I've done is mope around.
I'm so damn jealous of myself.
