    Been in and out from about age 9. Things do get better, but you have to make an effort to make it better. Whether it's having a full dedication to your training and diet, or getting good grades in school; i found that helped me quite a lot actually. Having a sense of achievement on a regular basis is really important or you're just going to think to yourself that you're useless and have no meaning in life. If you've been prescribed meds by a doctor or specialist, take them. I made the mistake of not and it nearly cost me my life. No one chooses to be depressed, sometimes it can just be a chemical imbalance in the brain, such as low serotonin levels. If you do suffer from such don't ever go near drugs that deplete your serotonin levels, such as Ecstasy. I did and I was borderline suicidal for about two weeks.

    Other than that just make your diet is in check, it really helps a lot. Also if you have the time, go for a jog/run outside and not in the gym. It's a good endorphin release.

    Good luck brahs..

    A lot of these responses really resonate with me personally.

    I'm a senior in HS and have been increasingly introverted since freshman year. I think my depression started to kick in when my best friend moved. Freshman year, I was the life of the group of my friends. Sophomore & junior year, I had a tough time making close friends. Being an introvert, it's hard to get the timing right with extroverts around me. I didn't have the energy to socialize with my peers when they were freakishly gregarious. I think they believed I was pushing them away, when in reality I was waiting for a meaningful conversation worth investing energy in. There's a part inside of me that wants to kick things into full gear with people and instantly be good friends, but we all know friendships don't happen like that. I hate meaningless small talk, but unfortunately small talk has its purpose in beginning new relationships.

    Lately I've been trying to break down the walls, but walls start building elsewhere. For example, I've been trying to invest my limited energy in my peers at school. When I get home, I want to be left alone and the walls go up when I'm with the family. As you can imagine, problems simply shift from one area of my life to another.

    I apologize for the metaphor speak if anyone found it difficult to follow. I need to leave this here in case anyone might be able to relate with what I've said.

    Godspeed to all of you guys/girls passing through a similar storm.

    I feel like I've been going through depression since freshman year. I can't say for certain, but it's around there. I was clinically diagnosed for depression around a year ago. A lot of it stemmed from not being able to be noticed by girls, but it also had to do with the fact my mom was an alcoholic. When my parents got divorced, that was pretty tough too. As far as girls go, I tried everything to get noticed by them. I started lifting really hard, bought a new wardrobe, and attempted to become more social. Hell, I even went on Accutane. It's an acne program which costs nearly $3,000 a month. Luckily covered by insurance. Still though, I'm in my senior year, and I haven't gotten so much as a glance from anyone.

    As far as how I dealt with my mom being an alcoholic, I cut off all ties with her. I was forced to go to her house on her allotted days to be with her, but I would immediately go into my room and stay in there for the rest of the night. She has recovered, but it can never be the same. I never will feel the same about her. I feel a great distance between us, and honestly I do not intend to get any closer. I'm lucky to have a very loving and supportive father though. That's the only thing that keeps me sane I suppose.

    It's interesting to me that weightlifting helps with your depression. I know everyone is different but for me, my depression made me super tired. (It still does.) To this day, I can't go weightlifting without huge doses of caffeine. It's horrible but I do what I can.

    ugh.

    I've been getting that feeling that everything I do is meaningless and that people only pretend to care about me, it's been like that since like september 2012. being with friends makes the first part go away, but the second part just kills it



    Introverts prefer being alone than with others. Introverts have friends, but they're close friends and in small numbers. Introverts CAN be sociable, but it doesn't last. Psychologists call it "recharging." Introverts recharge by being alone and in solitude. Introverts are happy and find more excitement when they're alone than with a group of not close friends or strangers. This can also happen with close friends if the time spent with each other is too long.

    bolded, I get sick of people (even if they're close friends) when I'm with them constantly, I thought I was just weird lol

    Never had a real gf in highschool, got bullied, never lived by any friends, watched my single father cry and told me he wanted to blow his brains out, brother kept running away, slept with .22 rifle and cried, moved in the middle of my senior year 1000 miles away, got bishes, started working out, got stacks in the bank, drive a bmw, spending more time with dad. Funny how things change. Just have to take the initiative.

    I'm 16 and yes I do lift.. But since my motorbike has been in the shop for like a week I can't get to the gym, I'm doing my A levels in school an have tried hard to get a job but nothing! I played rugby for 10 years but arguing with the coaches I don't play anymore and there's practically nowhere for me to play that! My parents are looking like splitting up and there's more details which I won't share but times are gonna be hard and I don't know what I can enjoy anymore, I might not get my bike back, I don't play rugby, I have a perfect girlfriend but can't do anything fun other than sit at home, I don't feel as if I'm good at anything, I have nothing, my tv is broke and also in the shop so I can't be a nerd and play video games! But I have no motivation to lift or have nothing I can work for which I enjoy, I do go out with friends but not all the time obviously, I just need some advice, if u can't help don't comment please

Other than my gf recently leaving me, I haven't had really any extremely hard things happen to me in my lifetime. I've got a good life, good family, money, great education, potential, friends, etc... Life just constantly feels meaningless though. I know it's stupid and irrational, but I constantly struggle with bitterness, anger, and depression and I'm not even sure why. I used to be a fairly talkative, funny guy, but I barely even talk anymore. I'm very monotone, stone faced, and robotic. I feel apathetic and don't really care about anything. I used to like being around people, but I hate it now and prefer being alone. The only thing that give me any happiness or relief anymore is weightlifting. I've begun training 6 days a week, 3 hours a day just to get relief. I know my problem probably sounds irrational and retarded, but I need some help/advice. After almost 5 years of feeling hopeless and angry, i'll do just about anything. Have any of you guys ever struggle with this and overcome it? Do you have any tips or advice?
    It's all good brah. In the end life is pretty pointless, so just enjoy yourself.

    Do whatever makes you happy. I used to be depressed because I had acne.

    If you aren't fond of the idea of medication right away, here is what helps me. Ive seen psychologist and 1st is 1st talking helps, and usually universities have free counselling.

    2nd. Ask your doctor for an iron prescription, deficiencies in iron lead to being tired. It takes a few months of regularly taking it to re-stabilizer levels.

    Rhodiola is a plant take helps with mood also. Its a herbal supplement.


    3) KEEP on working out, and doing things that make you happy/used to make you happy. Feelings won't change over night. It takes time.

    4) Pretend everything is okay (this isn't my opinion, psychologists have gone over it with me many times)
    If you don't try to act happy, you will have more troubles getting out of depression.

    5) Eat healthy. VERY important.

    6) Try to figure out things that can influence it, for me, some preworkouts cause anxiety, which coincides with depression.

    7) PLEASE remember you are NOT alone.

    PLEASE.

    Sorry to hear that your struggling :/ I have a history with depression too.. It usually changes with the seasons, but lately I've been so depressed for no reason
    All I do I workout, and its literally consuming me but no one seems to notice. Honestly I don't want them to, but I don't know what it going on with me right now. I'm just hoping that each day will get brighter (: with the spring weather I guess. If anyone ever needs to talk or needs support never hesitate to contact me, I'll be here for anyone who needs it. It's defiantly a difficult process for many people and not everyone can keep their head about water when it's just by themselves

    Bro i know what you're feeling. i fought through depression by getting more involved in my local music scene (long island pop punk, hardcore) it's a a great medium because you meet alot of people who are genuine and real. worst case scenario, you can take nootropics that elevate mood (sulbutiamine and piracetam). hope you feel better brah.

    I have clinical depression, always had it, always will. I'm on medication for it but the side effects suck so I tried to ween myself off of them because I don't wanna be medicated all my life. Kinda back fired though as about a month ago, on my birthday I just shut my self off from everyone and randomly burst into tears and cried myself to sleep. I always hoped when I reached my goals and become this big, ripped confident person I wouldn't need the medication, but that's starting to sound doubtful.

    #1 - Do NOT withdraw from society, you need to surround yourself with people you love and care for you. Get with a buddy or girl where you can do fun things and phuck the social media life. You need REAL people to be around.

    #2 - Find peace for yourself, learn how to meditate, and if you're religious, pickup the bible.

    #3 - Try to find a counselor that you can talk to that cares, reach out. You have to reach out, just like you did with this thread to get help. Talk to them daily/weekly to help you stay focused.

    #4 - Medical help, I'm personally against this BUT there are cases where it's needed. You can use medication to get you through TOUGH times, and just ween yourself off of it.

    #5 - You're not the only one to feel like this as I've learned over the years. When I was growing up, we didn't have social media or internet. You HAD to keep yourself busy and socialize with others. As time has evolved I blame technology for ALOT of issues going on with people today.

    #6 - Lifting for me helps me mentally. I dig lifting because when I lift, I ONLY think about the iron.

    #7 - Set yourself some life goals, small ones that will get you to big ones, and focus on hitting them. Many people do not have goals and just live day-to-day. I believe a person needs to have goals to shoot for. It gives us meaning and a purpose to live.

    #8 - Go watch some porn, that always makes me feel better

    OP (or anybody in here) can personally PM me anytime you want son. I'll try and help you as much as I can.
    Great advice !
    You’ve put blood sweat and tears into this, after all these years, every set and rep that you pushed your hardest. Don’t give up now.

    Dont be sad mate. Be happy, go out , make friends. Start being that guy you were before... go out f%## b%## no reason too be sad.

    Dont worry man youre not alone, depression hit me a while back after my addiction to percoset. You just have to push yourself to get out and be around friends and people who love you more and it will make you happy.

    Did a bit a few years ago but it wasn't really that bad..Basically once you realize that depression is so silly you will get over it. Pretty much everyone goes through it one way or another but its a part of life

    Anyone else get the worst depressive episodes in the morning? I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder with my OCD and have been fighting it for 2 years. What has helped me personally.

    1. Having goals. I started out writing down 5 goals that were time measurable, reasonable and what I wanted. As I accomplished one, I filled in its spot on the list. Eventually I started having more goals and it went past 5, but I would recommend sticking with 5 ones you can accomplish relatively soon, write down the long term ones seperately.

    Just with a notepad document with 5 goals I went from failing math to getting an A average, bringing up all my other grades to at least a B, learning to play piano, 130x1 max bench to 160x5 as well as progression on all my other lifts, getting 1st place at a wrestling tournament and a lot of other chit. They don't need to be big goals either, but you want them to mean something to you.

    2. Its OK to ask for help, but ask the right people. Don't ask your douchey fratboy friend, ask a close friend you can trust to be understanding. Our society and especially high school we are so pressured by bullchit machismo mindsets of not asking for help. If you have a broken leg, you go to the fukken doctor you don't try to overcome it with your manliness. Its the same thing with your mind. If it helps, think of the psychologist as a tool, and thats always how it is.

    Psychologists can only show you the door, you have to walk through it. They give you techniques to cope, its called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This isnt some new age hippy bullchit they use it because it works, so actually try to follow the psychologists instructions and don't dismiss it as retarded.

    3. Dunno if you guys know this feel but when I'm depressed I can't see from any other perspective, everything just seems hopeless and worthless. On the other side, when I'm happy, or even normal I would try to tell myself to remember what it felt like so I wouldn't have to be depressed anymore and could remember and get myself out of slumps. Doesn't work that way though. What did help was writing down my mindsets from when I'm happy and all the happiest moments of my life so when I'm depressed, although its like I don't remember what it FEELS like to be happy, I know that life is worth living and I can have hope.

    I am not free from my 2 year depression yet, but I am in a much better place than I was when it started. Good luck to all of you guys, remember that life is worth living. Will to power, will to pleasure, will to meaning.

    I get depressed over the most pathetic things. It's embarrassing to talk about because it's so pathetic. All the little minor things get me depressed. In the back of my head, I can see how many bigger issues there are out their but I just can't help it. I have like times in the day where I'm depressed. At night before I go to sleep, when I wake up and towards the end of 6th period.

    It's not at a point where I'm ready to talk about it to people I know, because it's over pathetic stuff and I'm not sure if it's actually depression or stupidity. (srs) Is this just a phase in my life?

    This is EXACTLY how I feel. I literally find myself getting depressed over the stupidest, most insignificant little things. Honestly, I think it's a result of multiple bouts of depression. Big stuff happens(break ups, death, loss, etc...). When big stuff happens, it weakens your emotionall "immune system", and you begin getting depressed over small things you never used to get depressed over. Feel free to message me man. I'm struggling with the same thing and would be happy to talk about it.

    Does anyone here ever feel like they're going insane from the depression? I literally will go up and my room and sit in my desk chair and stair at the wall for what seems like ages and just do nothing, and I don't even know why. I don't feel like talking, yet I want to scream. I don't feel like moving, yet I don't want to sit still. I just feel dead and lifeless and wish I could lose conciousness or go into a coma.

    I know it sounds weird, but it's how I feel. Anyone else ever notice this feeling?

    Absolutely. In my journal, I've written multiple times that 'I think I'm really going crazy'. Nothing I do feels right. I always want to be doing what I'm not doing. Sometimes I want to scream out of anguish, but my 'gentleman' side holds me back from actually screaming. When there's no one around, sometimes I will just find something soft to punch and let it all out. And often, I will also just want to not exist anymore. Nothing will matter to me and I just don't care. It's a state of mind that is very difficult for someone without depression to understand, so although depression is excruciating, I'm glad to know that other people might understand.

    I keep a journal too bro. It really helps to write out how I'm feeling.

    There's a massive field at the park near my house and it's extremely windy. Sometimes, I'll go over there and just scream since nobody can hear me. I just want to get the pain out of my body, so I'll scream as loud as I can, hit my heavy bag as hard as I can, or run as far as I can. No matter how much I scream, punch, or run though, I can't get it all out.
