    [SRS] Depression Discussion and Support Thread Part II

    My friend claims he's been depressed for years and takes all sorts of meds on and off. He gets really quiet at parties and ducks out early and unnoticed. Also, he's a pathological liar.

    Arguments against his depression are:

    A) He's rich
    B) He's good looking (no homo)
    C) He has a good, loving family
    D) We went to a top school
    E) He has a great job and a great apartment

    Whenever someone mentions an actor/singer going into rehab and calls them beta or says that they're making excuses, he goes off about how you can't explain depression and that it's not something that goes away, etc. (the usual). My suspicion is that he's doing it for attention and to have an emotional excuse/loophole for being a beta phaggot at times. It can't help that he comes from a family full of women. Thoughts MISC?

    Not sure, depression usually comes from having certain needs not fulfilled. Seeing as most people have your list (rich, good looking, great job etc.) as criteria for being happy they will not understand why someone, who has all of these things, can suffer from depression.

    A homeless guy living on the street can be happier than a rich kid with a lovely wife because quality of life is somewhat subjective.

    Depression pretty much comes down to feeling like a worthless human being and thinking that you'll never feel better. None of the things you mentioned necessarily prevent someone from feeling that way, other than a better-than-average access to mental health resources (psychiatrists, therapists, etc.).

    It's arguable. You can't physically test for depression, but you can by the symptoms that the person displays. Such as lethargy, loss of appetite, loss of interest in daily activities, etc.

    IMO medication helps, but it only masks the symptoms. If one were to find a solution for their depression, then I believe other treatment would be more beneficial, such as cognitive behaviorial therapy.
    The following sentence is false.
    The preceding sentence is true.

    my thoughts exactly. you get it in your head that you have a problem and it just sticks. you start to believe that you have a disease. doctors don't help by pushing pills on ppl that make them dependent on their phucking prescription pad

    Clinical depression is a chemical imbalance, not the kind where you go "**** I don't have all the **** I want right now". That's why people are given medications to try and correct the imbalance. Maybe he has it, maybe he's being a lying phaggot to get attention. Who cares? It's his life, not yours.
    Obsession is what lazy people call dedication

    It's like ADD. Kids don't wanna work hard in school because they are kids. So doctors make money and say they have ADD and hand out prescriptions from companies that pay them. corrupt.

    Not the same kind of depression.

    Clinical depression is caused by receptors in the brain reuptaking serotonin too rapidly.

    depression is most definitly real but there is different reasons and different types.
    some people become depressed because of events in their life etc and others just because of a chemical imbalance.
    depending how bad it is, medication sometimes is needed. people who dont have experience of it usually dont believe it so i dont even care that people are saying its bull****

    Was diagnosed with clinical depression in 6th grade. Developed into a manic depression. I can't explain the kind of **** I go through on a day to day basis, brah. Some people will say they are depressed after their girl breaks up with them- I get depressed for no reason and end up blaming myself for everything. I use to cut myself because I felt I deserved it. Not too many people do that- its not ****ing normal to cut yourself. I tried to kill myself with a box cutter when I was 17.. I will forever have a 13 inch, deep scar on my left forearm/wrist.

    I can't be around people if I am off my meds. I won't talk and will usually ends things early so I can leave and getinto my bed or listen to music and relax. I just get so anxious and nervous. I feel as if they are talking about me.

    Since I injured my leg and shoulder, I haven't been able to get rid of all the **** in my head. When I am in the gym, I'm happy. I get my confidence back and eat again. Since I haven't been able to exercise, I've been starving myself and not approaching girls like I use too.

    I grew up with a great family. Had everything I needed in life. Yet I was still going home each day after school either crying when I got into my room or going outside and riding my bike.

    I would never wish this upon anyone..

    I used to think depression was a crock of **** too. I come from a wealthy family, had a great childhood, and go to a great school and live an idealistic life. I came down with depression two years ago, and it was definitely the toughest time of my life. I resisted anti depressant medication but went through intense counseling for 6 months. A lot of people didn't know or believe that I was depressed, when at the same time I was on the verge of being suicidal. Just be supportive of your friend and believe everything he says.

    its weird... ive been through two major bouts of depression in my life. Just getting through my second one now....

    its weird as hell though because when I wasn't depressed, I thought people were exaggerating and bull****ting (even after going through it the first time). Nothing really causes depression. No certain event. It just kind of happens. I have a lot of bad **** in my history, but nothing made my depression happen, at least not that I know of

    Hell yeah it is son, Ive been through it and it can sometimes catch back up to me but the cure for it is positive thinking. You have to change your mindset, the way you think and the way you perceive the world.


    Takes helluva effort to do so but Its obviously worth it.

    Those things may seem great to a person who doesn't have it but to him it's the norm.

    A starving kid in Africa could be wondering why we (North America) don't feel like we're on E all the time because we have food and shelter and don't have to have a dollar a day to survive.

    Depression is sometimes a chemical imbalance or brought on by some kind of trauma...maybe in one quick instance or over time.


    In all seriousness...people who haven't actually had it (there's a difference between being sad and being depressed) and those who haven't...and for those who haven't been depressed, they'll never really understand it.

    yes. you definitely know a person is depressed, if all of those worldly achievements, aren't satisfying him.

    sometimes it's not an external problem but an internal one.

    combination of therapy and medication could work, if isolated treatments of either, doesn't.
