Due to the off-topic conversations in the love thread leading to talks of suicide, depression, angst, anxiety, and the likes...

This is your place to discuss your inner conflicts, share with others or simply give positive advice to people suffering. Reflect on past experiences, post your views on mental illnesses, share stories of family members who suffer from such illnesses - basically just keep it on topic.

Seriously though, I have been to many psychiatrist and psychologist, AA meetings, taken different medications, a zillion quacks, and I got the best help from simply meditating a lot over a long period of time, also reading a lot about it.

Psychologist and psychiatrists are all into the mindful mediation programmed these days anyway. There is definitely no harm researching and trying this stuff out yourself without paying for professional advice. Unless you are really chronically depressed which I don't think Mary is.

I had a brief stint with psychologist, and I took some anti-depressives, but once I decided they didn't do anything for me I gave up on them.

Well yeah, life sucks. But that's why you have to seek out ways to at least slightly improve it. Or you could choose to just dwell on it or winge about it, but that just makes it even worse...... Not saying that I don't do the latter myself.

I was really close to taking my own life about a year ago... Stood on the balcony, drunk and on pills, (highest floor) and was going to jump before I got persuaded to snap out of it. Not gonna cry about stuff or anything, I just wanted to say that this, what to call it, "close brush with death", according to people should make me appreciate life more, but mostly when I think back upon it, it just makes me regret not jumping before somebody found me. Because now I have to live with those memories and the knowledge of everybody I hurt with this retarded episode of my life.

Eh... Not trying to sound edgy or emo or some shit like that... And I don't think I'm likely to try that shit again (who knows, though)... But it goes to show that what most would see as an "epiphany" or "revelation" usually just confirms your previous world-view. I'll just quote Impaled Nazarene here... "Life is hell, and then you die, so better speed it up with [a] knife!" (Yeah they got the grammar wrong... typical Finns)

So your letting a memory of how you felt when you were pissed and drugged up, or some thought of a shitty world view you had a year ago, determine your views on life from now on?

Sounds pretty harsh tbh... but I guess that's the kind of perspective that is needed sometimes... Nah that's not really what I meant, I'm just saying it would have been easier if I DIDN'T remember it. I do feel better now than I did a year ago, generally speaking. And the suicidal thoughts have pretty much left my mind. But it's definitely gonna take a while before I get the shit I did a year ago out of my mind completely. The only thing that stopped me from jumping to my death was my girlfriend and for that I will be forever grateful...

You have a great point though... I shouldn't let that shit occupy my mind since it's in the past. Thank you...

I suppose that's a natural reaction. Feeling better overall but shitty once you remember what happened before... Probably out of shame (if I'm allowed to make assumptions, hope I'm not being rude there). Fortunately, feeling shame for a past incident is MUCH easier to handle than general depression affecting you on the present. Good luck.

Since i began to be medicated 24 hours round all year my life certainly changed for the best. I think people overestimate too much their emotions. At last everything is about chemistry

Might as well join with you guys

Schizotypal disorder here, been taking meds (Abilify and Zoloft) for almost five years now and they certainly help. However, if I forget to take them for two or more days, then taking them again sends me into a depression like nothing else. Usually I feel so shit in such cases, that I just sleep and sleep and... sleep some more.

The weird thing is that being schizotypal doesn't even bother my life that much, a much bigger problem is my inability to focus on doing one thing (as in a hobby, I can focus on work) for a long enough period for it to be truly productive. I can compose and record music, draw manga or post reviews of games and movies on YT for a few weeks atm before I switch hobbies again. That's annoying as hell.

There's actually a concept in philosophy called absurdity (conceived by Albert Camus) that basically says that despite the meaninglessness in life and the fact that our reality is a sucky endeavor, we should strive to give our lives meaning anyways and live in revolt of the unconscious.

When I read about that concept earlier this year, I was blown away by how simple it was, but how profound it actually was to read. For the last four or five years, I kept thinking that depression was always going to be in my head, and shockingly, it likely always will be! I never exactly grew up with great emotional support, and being yelled at over dumb shit since childhood really drains you and causes you to have to jolt your worldview in an entirely different direction.

But what I think we can do is that we can acknowledge our depression exists when it arises. By telling ourselves that we know how we feel in the moment, whether depressed, sad, angry, happy, melancholy, etc... we can at least know that it's there to, so to speak, let the storm of depression pass and mitigate the effects of the emotional trauma we're facing.
