Sometime life gets in the way.....

Feels like its been a while since I have been here. 3 or 4 days maybe. I had a rough weekend that put me into a state of depression. Nothing worth talking about, but just know that I am bouncing back and doing much better today. I am hoping to pick back up with my life again soon, as I haven't done anything these last few days. Depression can really take a toll on a person and take away all motivation to do anything enjoyable and even responsible. Sometimes life gets in the way...

I take medication too. Sometimes things come a long that the medication just can't control. I will be ok though

@sharon6345 I hate when people feel that way. Medication isn't going to solve everything. It is just something that aids in the process.

I feel that too, but i tried hard not to be sucked in that feeling. Because, if I dont pull myself together then I might go down with self pity and that is not good. So instead, I tried to be jolly and tried my best to keep up with the world.

It is unfortunate that anyone understands. I don't like hearing anyone going through this. It sucks for sure. But it is good to know that I have the support from you all. Being here always cheers me up.

@T_gray It is sad as so many have been there before. Unfortunately it is the way of life but I am also glad that there is a community like this when I am going through it.

Cheer up my dear.It is not good to feel this way.Find the source of its cause, and then find a better solution so life will become so interesting and enjoyable.Covert immediately your depressive feeling to another positive one ,by listening to a slow rock,and mellow rock music.This would help you drive away depression.Also, eat lots of celery and parsley for they prevent depression.

Depression sucks. Especially when people who have no clue tell you to snap out of it, as if it were that easy. Or my girlfriend, who always thinks it's because of her, even though I've told her I'm a Bipolar and am going to be depressed, sometimes for days, and for no reason. Good luck.

When we have plans then life gets in the way. I heard it somewhere or from someone. I don't really remember. I hope everything works out. Hi from another guy who suffered depression and social anxiety.

It's good to see you back. I had missed seeing your name in my notifications. I was gone for most of last week so I'm still trying to catch up.

It sucks being gone for so long. not only because you have to catch up, but because you feel like you are away from your friends for so long.
