Posted:Anxiety and Depression:

Does it really get better


Do you just learn to pretend everything is ok when it's not.

Ok I posted this question in either/or but I feel like it needs serious discussion right now. As you may or may not know I suffer from anxiety and depression as does my girlfriend. Since about Febuary I have been going in an up and down cycle of depression and anxiety with only brief days when i feel good. Those cycles are getting longer with less and less good days. I'm begining to think that I'll never get better. That I'll always be this way. That all you can really do is pretend every thing is ok, whether it is or not.

What do you think?

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.

Posted:It takes alot of work and change man, you have to want to change and be happier. You have to forgive and be forgiven and fix everything and be truthfull. Talk about stuff, like real things to build trust.

Everyone has hard times, but you just have to dig it in when it gets hard cause it always gets alot better. No relationship is perfect neither are people. People pretend it is, but they dont last long, you have to front you demons to get through and it will get better. You have to love yourself and share your love, and work real hard at keeping it together. I swear man, it allways looks better in the morning.

Try making something, doing something new and growing...if not you get stuck in a rut and it goes down hill. Hell you can be depressed and still have a good time.

Anxiety is hardcore, i think if you learn meditation you can contorl it, maybe Tai chi or anything that calms you, and you have to learn to chill/ relax. Its a tough 1. There is always hope though dude...just do whatever you have to, to get better...even if it is pretending.hug I know itll all workout in the end, you just have to try and want to get better. meditate

Posted:Yes it does! Even if your circumstances don't change, your outlook on life can make the world seem a wonderful place.

How are you dealing with your depression right now? Recreational drugs / drink only make the problems worse. Eat a healthy diet , drink lots of water and exercize. Think it would be a good idea for you to talk with a counsellor / life coach.

If you'd like to talk, you are very welcome to PM me.

Posted:hug hug hug

i totally know what you're going through hug

i to have had both, i had depression when i was in my early teens, which lead onto anxiety which i found much harder to deal with and it has taken a long time to get it under control..simply because its so fightening that i had a few set backs ..and still do occasionally if things get alittle stressful.

for me your two questions merge ... yes it does get better, but has never completely left but i have learned to live with it and not affect my life so much ... ive said in previous posts that im glad its happend to me because it has changed who i am..for the better smile it has taught me to appreciate the smaller, simpler things in life; the sun on your face the wind in your hair swimming in cool clear water ...cheesy i know but its amazing how those things can make you feel biggrin

you have to train your brain again to put things in perspective and not be so irrational in its thinking, because i have found thats the worst thing you mind plays tricks on itself..you just have to stop when you see yourself following a train of though and try look at the positive things however small.

i have controlled mine with medications, but also do alternative things to; ie, some people go to the gym which i have done in the past but its so boring for me, i go for a swim or walk when i going somewhere, climb the stairs instead of taking the lift (elevator) and dancing!! my god if you go out dance like a mad man, dont give a crap about what other people thing just go for it (thats my fav)oh and yoga wink
Eat properly and regularly you body wont work properly if you dont feed it the nutrients it needs. cut back on caffine and alcohol, but make sure you get enought fluids in the day take a bottle of water or juice out with you. and one last thing..which may sound completely stupid but i find it works .. walk with you head up (not looking at the ground) and smile at people. the more you do it the better it makes you feel, i dunno why but it makes me smile even more.
oh and dont let yourself wallow you will only sink faster..talk to someone or write it down

take care hun hug

Posted:Yes, it does go away. Maybe not permanently. But you may find for times in your life it will be completely absent.

I have found that as I have grown more aware of myself, my bouts have become less frequent. I am stronger and happier in myself.

But it takes time finding out about yourself. Both on a physical basis (diet, exercise, etc etc) & on an emotional basis.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Yeah...it goes away. Then, when a serious stressor returns to your life (i.e. the third year of medical school) it comes back. Sometimes it doesn't even require the stressor to come back. Soemtimes it comes back on its own.

It's an unpredictable beast. But I am being the stubborn a$$ that I usually am and I'm refusing meds for it. I only have 8 weeks left in this year and by the time the meds even started working, the stressor will have resolved.

Posted:I have personally found that depression does go away. I suffered last year through finishing grade 12 in which i did alot of things that i am not very proud of, but as Narr said it does change your outlook on life and i would not change it.

The first big step is asking for help and i think putting a post asking for help is a big step. I think talking about the problem is the biggest way to help yourself get better.

I had a friend who was going the through depression at the same time and we helped each other a great deal. You have a girlfriend who knows what your going through so you can help her and she can help you.

this is only my two cents you need to find out works best for you.

Posted:Thank you all so much for your support. I'm trying so hard to get out of this deep blue funk I'm in but censored keeps happening that brings me down. Today I learned that I'm going to lose my appartment. frown

As for dealing with this I'm on a couple meds and I meditate, but that only helps when I'm meditating (If I can get into an alpha state) and goes right back to the way I was before I started meditating. And I stopped smoking pot a while ago. And I rarly ever drink. It just seems like the world is out to get me. After 5 weeks of solid job hunting I haven't even gotten an interview. confused

Thank you all for your support, and your words and hugs mean the world to me. redface smile

Posted:I was always a moody teen but my only serious bout of depression lasted 2 years (in which time i isolated myself from everyone, developed drug dependencies, eating disorders, cut myself... the whole shamoozal). Then one day i stopped. I counld't get the drugs i was using for a while, started going to the gym, walks down the park etc.
I wish i could pin-point the turning point. I know so many people who are going through the same thing. I can ctill feel what it is like to be there but i don't know how to help them, i don't know how i got over it myself.
So there is the background wink. As to whether i think it goes away or not... no, probably not. I have months where i will be 'happy'. I have the best friends in the world, a nice place to live, i laugh alot. People call me to cheer them up rolleyes.
And then i have weeks like this one. Where i think; i am happy according to their standards. But i am not actually going anywhere. I am getting closer to a higher paying job. Closer to a good relationship. But not closer to finding out who i am or why the world is like it is. Why my best friend is dying of cancer, why we feel the need for a social pecking order, why we arn't satisfied with our own company and the (numerous) luxuries we have.
Sometimes i have weeks like this. Where i just want to leave everyone and meditate somewhere untill i am old and grey. And then i have weeks (months) where i am actually depressed and numb and i don't care about anything.
So no. I don't think the depression will ever go away. But i actually am happy with it. It makes me ask the big questions. It helps me know myself. I think it sets me apart from the shallow, brand wearing, made-up, bleached, plucked and tucked norm (not that i am judgmental hug) It lets me step back from the world.
I guess i have learnt to llive with it and use it. When i am depressed i don't like the normal happy me. It seems fake.
Anyway, as you can see, i am having a contimplative period. Think i will read castaneda and my old buddhist texts and learn somethin new.
A big hug to all who are feeling down. It is generally because you are sensitive, so it can never truely pass. To get over it comletely you would have to shut yourself off from your sensitive side, and you don't want to do that. It is what makes you beautiful. Twill pass, and you will be stronger and wiser when it does.

Posted:Kaji hug

Yes I'm sure it will go away. Ultimately it's just chemicals in your brain making you feel things, you have ways to stimulate yourself to let the good chemicals out you just have to find them.

I always thought depression was just a stupid thing that didn't really exist and people were making a fuss over nothing, till one day it hit me after some bad times frown My confidence left me, as did a lot of other feelings I thought were 'normal', thus I didn't feel normal to myself.

It passed over time, I found the root of my pain and I did my utmost to overcome what was basically fear and finding new acceptance of situations. Not the eek type fear but the deep stuff...you know.

I wish you and your lady all the best Kaji, it's good you have someone to help and you can return the favour too. I hope reading that you have friends like us sharing our love tto you help put a litle wee smile of your face smile

im am in a hurry so didnt get a chance to read other posts, but here is my initial reaction to your subject title!

yes yes yes, it does go away!

i was a nervous, depressed mess 6 months ago. but i simply broke things down, and day by day, took the neagtive things and changed them. if u feel like staying in bed because its easier, dont.

even if u get up and do something u feel ur not remotely enthused by (at the time) do it anyway, rather than moping. it wil slowly have its affect on u.

i gave up work, moved home, gave up smoke, got involved in interesting things. took up poi! wrote for a newspaper. volunteered for festivals etc...

try and stay motivated, as i sed it may not make u feel better at that moment, but rome wasnt built in a day....and that hope can keep u going.

best advise i can give: experience some change. even if it is doing something u wud never ever do. for example, if u have never had a interest in cooking, bake buns! newness, im sure of it, sparx something in ur brain

i wil b bak to read yer posts soon.....

Posted:I'd say it depends on the severity of both. . . in the worse cases which many of us here have had. . . no it doesn't go away permenantly. You can learn to ignore it very well though. . . you can even be really quite happy if you just ignore all the pain and doubt and the like.

It's a mixture of both when it comes down to it, is it there all the time. . . .yes, but you can generally ignore it well enough to keep going and doing what needs to be done. Even enjoying yourself.

Just takes time. A lot of time. Oh and a few good things happening in a go is a nice kick start (oh if we were all so lucky. . .).

Posted:In 1998 I had a lot of things go wrong in my life (and I mean ALOT) and since then I have been suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)...at the beginning it was really hard to cope with all the nightmares and the flashbacks and I also did the whole pushing everyone that was close to me away.

It got so bad that my father and I used to have screaming matches at each other every night, simply because he could not comprehend what I was going through. Unfortunately the arguing with him, as much as he thought it was helping me get inspired to get help, only made me worse.

In the end it came down to the fact that I had to get away because where I was living was only making me remember how things used to be before all the shite happened.

I made the decision to move to Perth by myself from Sydney. I had other indirect family here in Perth so I knew if I fell flat on my arse then I would have some support if I needed it.

Turns out it was the best decision of my life...though there are still times in the year (especially around the anniversaries of the events that made me the way I am) that I have bad nightmares come back, I am no longer taking anti depressants all year round...instead I only take them during that one bad month.

I still have flashbacks which I have learnt to control (as much as you can control memories).

I have bad days but I always find talking about it with someone who understands my situation helps to ease some of the bad feelings.

i think everything has already been said, so i'll try not to go on forever!

like a lot of people who have replied - i've been there too. it's always there, lurking in the back of your mind, but you have to make choices to help yourself. talk to a counsellor, a doctor, a friend, anyone.

try to see the positive in any situation - even if it's the worst moment of your life. i'm serious! my boyfriend broke my heart & dumped me earlier this year, and while i was upset for ages, i chose to see it as a positive change in my life. and now i can talk about him - even to him - and laugh and be happy. i am even flirting outrageously and may be starting something with a new guy. (you have no idea how much fun flirting can be after being with one person for so long!! i thought i'd lost my knack...apparently not!! ubblol)

you have to take control of your life, and your feelings.

life will improve - if you let it. smile

Posted:I used to be seriously depressed. Hardly a day went by that I did not think of killing myself, usually by means of something sharp and pointy. Just imagine putting a finger to the side of your neck, and feeling the pulse there, strong and full of life. Feeling thelife flowing under your fingertips and willing it to just stop. Imagine looking at your own face in the mirror and wishing you would just die, that death would be a mercy to you. And your own family doing NOTHING to help. Not even the ones you thought you could trust. My own father had seen me on multiple occasions holding a sharp kitchen knife to my own throat. He just told me to put it away, like I was just being a melodramatic drama queen.
Sending me to some mental ward would have been no good to me at all. I would not have tolerated the loss of what little freedom I had, and the humiliation factor- feeling like a prisoner would NOT have made me want to open up to anyone, it would only have made me even more messed up then I was when I went in. But I could have used somebody to talk to. I really could have. Somebody who would not judge me or crawl down my throat.
I wondered if I was clinically or seasonally depressed. But I was not interested in taking pills. I don't like the idea of being dependant on drugs in order to function, and I've heard too many horror stories- people who turn into zombies on the medication, or what happens when they try to go off.

Why do I think I ended up this way? In hindsight, I don't think it was physiological. My mother is better now, but even recently she had real problems with running her mouth- she has said things to me over the course of my life that would have gotten her fired had she said the same things to co-workers. Some of these things have bordered on or crossed the line into emotional abuse. And to top it all off, I was (and am) still at home- moving out is not an option right now (my job does not pay enough), and at the time, I was unemployed. To make that even worse, I had lost a few jobs for stupid reasons- being blamed for either things I did not do or that were well and truly beyond my control, and the last job, I had been fired from in a truly nasty way- imagine your boss calling you at 9 pm on a friday night to tell you you were fired- not even having the balls to say it to your face.

And as if that were not sucky enough, just imagine the gods-awful feeling of not having a clue of what you want to do with your life. At 23 years old, I felt like I was ready to, and indeed, deserved to die. I felt like at my age, I was supposed to have everything figured out and wrapped up in a neat little package- I was supposed to have my own home, and a whole life plan mapped out, everything all nice and under control. But I had none of that. Nada. Zip. I did not have a clue what I wanted to do with my life- I knew that I was unsuited for many jobs because I was sick and tired of being a peon- I did not want to spend my life as somebody's bootlick. If there's one thing that can be said about me, I simply cannot just sit and take abuse when it's heaped on me. I've been bullied at home, school, and work, and my bullshit limits have been reached. So what did that leave me with? The artistic pursuits I love so much simply won't bring me the level of affluence and comfort that I want eventually. How was I to live without selling out or compromising myself?

In the end, I was brought out of that mess in a most unlikely manner. Needing some money, I got hired on by the same security company that my dad works for, and was given my first site- a condo under construction. It was actually pretty cool- Walking through this place, I saw things that I had previously only read about in all the books I own about skyscrapers and construction. And across the road was another such building, complete with its own huuuge Tower crane. For something to do, I began watching that crane..and the rest is history.

Since then, I have felt NOTHING close to the level of self hatred and depression that used to haunt me. Every now and then, I feel kinda sucky, but it only lasts a few hours at most. While I was taking my Crane training, I felt kinda sucky a few times when I was having trouble with something, but it quickly departed. Getting my hands on a crane helped:) Feeling one of those huge machines respond to my touch, and gentle manipulation of the swing levers seemed to help me more than all the pills ever made could. I'm kinda nervous now, awaiting the start of my apprenticeship, but at the same time, I feel confident that in the end, I will be able to make it happen. Having a job that gets me out of the house for a while most days helps, and my training has given me the hope for the future that I so desperately needed. Finally, I feel like things may eventually work out for me, home and job-wise.

It's said that Kwan Yin, the chinese goddess of compassion can take any form needed to lead a being out of suffering. Perhaps in my case, she borrowed a huge red Tower Crane.

Kaji, I stronly suggest you find somebody to talk to- somebody who will take the time to listen to you and evaluate your situation before pushing pills. In some cases, a depressed person really does need the medicine. For other people, it's a few changes to their life that is in order. For other people, it's a combination of both. Blessings to both you and your girlfriend, and I hope that things improve for you, I really do.

Posted:I am bipolar & from what you very briefly described, it is completly possible that you & your GF have a bipolar disorder or some other type of chemical imbalance. Any emotional issues where you swing back and forth on a somewhat regular basis, sometimes you can even time them..from 2 week to 3 month cycles sometimes, is a bipolar sign. I suggest that you go to see a psychiatrist or psychologist that's trained to diagnose(which ever one it is that can prescribe meds..I can't remember which one it is) & have them test you for a chemical imbalance. This usually requires answering alot of questions & sometimes a blood test. DON'T go to a regular physician, they are not trained & can often times missdiagnose or prescribe the wrong medications which can make it worse. If these feelings have been an ongoing issue you really should have it checked out. It may be that you litterally can't work through this on your own because your system is all out of whack & all the changes in the world might not make it go away or get better without help. So please seek some help, I speak from living my entire life with these problems. It's better to get checked & told that you don't need meds, than to continue trying to make things better on your own & not improving when all you needed was medication. If you have any further questions or want to know of some good resources for info, email me crmanier@comcast.net

as a therapist, i'd say sometimes, for some people. but there are definately some that struggle with it their entire lives. i think i am one of those people frown

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

As a "to be" therapist, I'd like to think that those people just haven't found the right combination of medications and/or therapies..

Unfortunately, most health care systems don't care enough about things like anxiety and depression, because they can take so LONG to find the right combination (it's not cost effective).

It's a vicious circle, because you don't WANT to be on this trial and error merry go round, but if more things were available to *Start* with, it would be easier.

Posted:that could be true. but even those that do find the "right" combination, it doesn't always hold. people's bodies get used to the medication and they stop working after awhile. the struggle is always there, even when they are feeling slightly better. it's because to feel better, it takes a lot of constant work. hence why i say they struggle their entire lives.

but some advice for a to-be therapist from someone who already is, there will be things you cannot fix in your profession, no matter how hard you try. don't set yourself up for disappointment for every client you cannot save. you'll burn out really quickly.
