I agree with you.
Clinical depression is misunderstood at times. And I hope you will pull through this challenge. Thanks for sharing the above. So true! Personally I have been told all of the above and all they ever served were to make me feel even worse! I felt more worthless than ever and ever more convinced that world is better without me.
However, I was determined to get out of the serious depression that I had. There must be more to life! Sad to say, I had been battling this difficult journey by myself. Lost 2 relationships along the way, a promising career and greatly misunderstood.
I think you enjoy being depressed! It has been the worst nightmare of my life! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. Made me cringe… those things you got said to you. You are not alone in this indeed. I used to feel very alone. This is exactly what my friends tell me, i dont wanna talk to them when they start up saying things like this…. My friends also tell me that i like being depressed and thats y every other day i am sad and moaning about something, they also say that i m a cry baby… i wish they wud know exactly how i felt… i hate them for being like this with me… i hate them all.
Are there other new friends you can make? A support group in your vicinity? Maybe they will be better help and comfort for you?

I understand… As you can see from the comments, you are not alone in this. We all understand Perhaps distance yourself slightly from your friends who make you feel bad, let yourself feel the emotions and deal with them in your own time and space Take care Noch Noch. When I was little I was bullied constantly, and eventually decided that if emotions did nothing but hurt me I was better off without them- I managed to detach myself.
I eat little while inside my house and only a tiny bit more than that while outside of it. The only thing that helps me sometimes. Anyways, I just wanted to say that this list was very helpful. What can I do, as merely a sibling without any real power to get him professional help, to help him? Thank you for your time- it really does help to see that others understand.

Thanks for sharing your experience, and I hope your family can come to read this blog post too and learn how to communicate with you. So I hope the situation improves for you. Feel free to rant if you need to here, or via email to me. As a sibling, I think being there to listen to him is the best. Or just kept me company at home. Maybe this is what your brother needs, to know he is not alone. Is there some support group around your area for teenages as well?
I try to just be there, or I drag him out of the house to go somewhere, because I know that helps me- thanks for the advice. It was irrational, I know. My friends told me to get a grip and pull myself up. My parents and seniors told me I was committing a fatal mistake by quitting my […]. You just need to get away from what makes you upset or sad.
Spot on! We have to work on our thoughts and emotions consciously to come out of it! Yes we do. You have taught me about consciously thinking and subconsciously thinking. I agree that if we change our thinking to consciously thinking that it will help a depressed person to get better. I was in the hospital this April with lithium poisoning for 11 days. First or second night there I just started a crying bout not uncommon this was a general hosp not a psych hosp and the nurse got all snippy and told me to snap out of it shes a 60 year old grandmother and came home one day and found her son dead.
She proceded to tell me to watch someone elses joy on TV if I had none of my own and I had no reason to be crying. Needless to say I requested to not have that nurse care for me any further. I was Baker acted state of FL but had to stay in regular hospital for hemodialysis and other tests.

Thank you for sharing everyone. Sorry to hear about the bad experience but good to know you are better. And good on you for standing up for yourself. I can understand where this 60 year old grandma is coming from — she has seen it all! I too suffer from depression. Lately it has been particularly bad.
I totally agree on those 10 things she says, and I totally feel the same way too and how I think of everything…. Hi Miguel Many of us feel the same and no one really understands unless we tell them either. I hope you find some comfort in knowing you are not alone…. Please write anytime you need to NochNoch. I found this helpful.
An open letter to my beloved church
Should I remain quiet in a situation where a friend is seeking sympathy? They would just remain quiet and sit in the room with me or come check in on me every now and then in case I do something drastic. But sometimes I just wanted to talk and they would listen, without judging, without any advice, they just listened.
And that helped me a lot. Timmie also dragged me out for walks and literally dressed me and put shoes on me, and that made me feel better too. Other times, I told them to talk about random things, and they just told me about TV shows they had seen, or things they had done that day…. Sometimes, all we want, I think, is for someone to try to see things from our irrational standpoint and not think we are crazy…. Sometimes my mother would personally attack me for no reason.
But I need to be more considerate and not try to lecture her about it, or treat her depression as a problem. I do my best to help her out as much as I can, but reading this has shown me a few things I need to improve upon…. Thanks for sharing this. Yes I think it is hard for those who are not going through the challenge to understand. Thank you for taking care of her. Under the right circumstances, or the wrong situation, I will plummet backward.
