SICK N TIRED OF BEING SICK N TIRED... BUT, I KNOW NOW IM NOT ALONE IN THIS.

  • I AM A 28 YR OLD MALE LIVING WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY.

    YOU DONT HEAR ABOUT TO MANY GUYS LIVING WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY,OR MAYBE THEY DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT.THE THINGS I HATE MOST ABOUT DEPRESSION ARE THE NEVER ENDING SADNESS,THE UNEXPLAINED PAINS/BODYACHES,THE FRUSTRATING NERVOUSENESS,THE CONFUSSING PANIC ATTACKS,THE AGRAVATING MOOD SWINGS,YOUR HAPPY FOR 5 MINUTES THEN SAD THE REST OF THE DAY,JUST TO MENTION A FEW.OH AND OMG,THE BEST ONE YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO TALK TO ABOUT IT AND YOUR TO SHY TO BOTHER ANYBODY,AND IF THEY DO LISTEN THEY JUST TRY THE BRUSH YOU OFF.IF THERES ANYONE THAT CAN RELATE,OR GIVE ME SOME ADVICE I WOULD GREATLY APPRICIATE IT

    I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THAT I KNOW NOW,I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS,AND THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE GOING THROUGH THIS.I USE TO THINK I WAS THE ONLY ONE.

    THIS WEB SITE HAS SHOWED ME THAT THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE,LIVING WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY.HOPEFULLY I CAN HELP OUT WITH SHARING MY EXPERIENCES,AND I CAN LEARN MORE BY READING OTHERS STORIES TOO. 

    GOD BLESS !

This is so exausting that at times i have to stay preaty much in bed for 3 or so days to get some of my strenght back from my visites which very seldum come around.Some people say i have a lot to offer but i sure dont feel that way. I feel as though ive lived my life and im just stuck in this depressed world waiting to be picked up or put down for ever. It seems as though i can only live my life for everybody else and not myself which dosent leave me with enough inner strenght to go on. I dont know how to chabge these feelings because my brain seems to be controlled by something other then myself. Please help and any conversation will help.

    Angel,

     

       Honestly, I don't believe your experience is gender specific, although I can appreciate that you may not find other males who are open about being depressed.  Men are brought up with the "Macho myth" and it stifles them from reaching out.  I feel you.  I am female, but everything you describe is everything I live with...

       Other depressives understand because we've all walked in those shoes. 

     

    Take care of yourself as best you can

      This is Joey. Ive been round and round with this God thing only to have it come back to tell me its fine to believe God is listening if one feels it halps. You can imagine the different ways people have tried to get me to see God there way but only for me to find out there just as depressed as i am even with there God to listen to them. Im more then anything believing that some people should have died very young while they were happy but we just cant control that sometimes. I use to be so happy with the simple things in life only to find now that ive worn them out for ever.My depression is so far past a 10 on ten scale that the so called experts tell me they just cant help. Is there a reason for this on going suffering is my scarey question. Please dont think im critising your belief im only wishing i cauld be comfortable with such however it just dosent work for me. Its like my praying wheather its for someone else or myself dosent arrive like a wrong email address that wont even tell me it didnt arrive so i keep waiting for a sign to let me believe god really does care or at least hes there but isnt interested in helping me. Thanks for listening.
