    Feels like I've been stuck in this washing machine for a little while now.

    I'm doing good. Been focussing on myself and have a week off work next week which luckily falls on half term so I will have my son all week and we are planning a spooky anime Halloween marathon and also going to the Grayson Perry exhibition here in Bristol
    Payday Friday so for the first time in months will have some money in my pocket.
    Hell even my sciatica isn't as bad.

    Everything's coming up Millhouse

    It can be tough sometimes, but it helps to talk about it to trusted friends. You can go out together, have fun, relax and forget about your problems. Otherwise, you can take a proactive approach where you try to sort your life out and face up to your responsibilities. It helps to do things right and come clean. It's inspiring and makes you feel hopeful.

    I’ve dealt with depression for the last five years what helps me is eating right and exercise also doing the things that I love to do and hanging out with all my friends that are positive and funny I find that when I hang out with my friends that make me laugh I’m more likely to not be as depressed the next day

    If I'm depressed I'm not hungry so fuck good food
    I don't have any mates so can't hang around with them and even if I did I'm depressed I don't want to go anywhere especially not to fucking excercise

    My little girl died in January, not long before she was due to be born. It was a decision that was forced upon us. It's strange, but dealing with that decision, her dying and then her birth was not as hard as living without her is.

    don't worry about the son thing

    no son wants a dad or mom. we just wanna do hoodrat things with our friends

    he does need his dad tho and if you're paying for your kid's life, you should feel very proud of yourself because that's respectable as all hell.

    I know depression is a shapeshifting monster understood by only the victim, but I applaud all people responsible enough to take care of their kids, let alone be adults.

    if you deserve your drinks then drink them.

    if you don't want to feel like something is vaguely wrong- i can't help you there

    Hey Decy, glad things ended up looking up for you. I've been super MIA from this place, but I can relate. Not the same situation but I've definitely been down that same trench.

    Thanks seyer

    Thinking of making some changes and leaving my home town and moving back to the same city as my son (Only 40 miles away)

    Don tend to socialise much where I am now and this town is jus being filled with hipsters n trustifarians. Also it's so expensive I can't make ends meet.

    Just need to work out what to do for work over there.

    Will 1st say people are entitled to feel how they feel, and therefore, it's anyone's right to basically wallow in depression, marinate right in it, and do absolutely nothing. Maybe not healthy or productive, but you can do that for as long as you want.
    Exercise and hanging out are good countermeasures (assuming you have positive friends) and very likely something you don't feel like doing, but that's part of why they work. Guessing I've said that in this thread before but stands repeating.

    Feel like I should also mention that the end goal is not the elimination of depression, it's not constant everlasting happiness, it's about achieving a balance whereby you're able to experience a range of emotions that will likely fluctuate throughout the day (and I mean fluctuate, not rapidly cycle or becomes erratic).

    @Hua Guofang sorry to hear that, tough on you, and probably tougher on the wife. Be well.
    @theprotester you said "if" you're depressed, I'm assuming you're not? Know you follow at least some aspects of Eastern religion/philosophy, was wondering if that helps you against depression since part of that involves the acknowledgment and acceptance of suffering.
