you are right my family plays a big role in this. i have considered seeing a psychologist but am not really the type of person that opens up easily or likes to talk about my problems. I also find the fact that paying someone to 'talk' about why I am depressed of which I already know why is simply a waste of money and time.
Talking about your problems is therapy itself especially if you do to trained personnel.It's not a waste of money because they help solve the problem.
If you have the money anyway but it's cheap if you go to a government institution.
Whichever way it is,get help.
You will be alright.

thanks for the response. To be honest I have tried to get close to God for many many years and nothing. Nothing has happened and nothing has changed. So I really don't know anymore




It is so because that is what you think??

Do you have a family?
Do you have friends??

grin thanks for making me laugh,if only it was that simple


Uhmm I get depressed too every now and then and there's times when I wake up in the morning and I quickly shut my eyes back, wishing I'd never wake up. There's times when I cross the road and think, wouldn't it make it all easier if I got hit by a car. Funny thing is I know why I'm depressed but they are things I just can't say especially the family part. I feel soo distant from everyone I've known but in my heart I crave nothing more than being close to them. I can hardly sleep. I feel like breaking something many times. If there's any solace in it, then just know that I know how u feel just that in my case, my demons are not with me all the time. They take a stroll occasionally but always seem to come back. I totally get u and it feels like ur in my head. U don't have to do it alone

I don't know what to do any longer with myself and my life. I have been suffering from depression for as long as I can remember since my early school days but things just seems to be getting worse. I don't have any joy or happiness. I hate my job with a passion and I think am in the wrong profession too. I am not really close to my family and they don't understand me. There is so much going wrong in my life that I don't really want to go into nor I doubt people really care. I just don't want to feel this way anymore. Has anyone that has been depressed that has come out of it? What did you guys do? I really am down on my wits and am having really unsavory thoughts atm. cry sad

Have you found a solution yet? Drugs might not help you long term.

You need something definitive. I am a certified Mind and Emotions Therapist. There are cutting edge mind and body techniques that can sort you out for life. I can give you proofs. Evidence terminates arguments.

Note :The old long term psychotherapy and drugs treatments are old school. They take a lot of time if they work at all. And drugs have debilitating side effects.

Long story short. I can be of help. You can PM me so we can chat to see if we can work together.

Re: Help! I Am Suffering From Depression by flightz(f): 1:03am On Apr 11, 2016
You need to see a psychiatrist, antidepressants might be prescribed. One thing I know of is that women are more prone to depression than men.

Money problems. Obviously.
A real depressive wouldn't have use for florid grammar or big hair or fancy trips to Ghana for Christmas!
Answer this question honestly : Do you feel relief when you see someone seemingly worse off? Physiologically or financially. I know I do. smiley

Depression is an Illness that can be treated medically.. A lot of people think it is because of lack of Money or Job that cause depression. This is not true. Depression is a disease of the Brain and can be treated. Please consult your doctor and get help.. Don't be ashamed of it.. it is just like Malaria, that can be treated.. You might just be surprise that the treatment might be change of diet or sleeping habit..

God be with you!

True, And this is mostly due to the frequent hormone changes due to the Menstrual cycle or Pregnancy. Some worse case happens after Child birth..

Need for a medical checkup Sis.

Ther are a few things you can do to improve from depreesion like

1. Setting daily goals for yourself to accomplish. This will make you feel positive hence get better.
2. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways thus good for you.
3. Eat Healthy. There's evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, tuna, spinach and avocado eases depression.
4. Sleep well and enough. Note; If possible, the best place is the most quite and that is no disturbances at all. Just to name a few.

Nice shot. Though the frown still suggest some bottled-up feeling (just teasing)...

Have you gotten help on the situation? Feeling any better now?

There is an outpatient psychiatric clinic in abuja when my sister was going though depression we contacted them and the doctor was able to treat her without us even traveling....the doctor (a US trained psychiatrist) was communicating with her via phone and skype...that is something they use at their center they call it telepsychiatry so that they can help people across Nigeria...their website is www.melvillehealthcarecenter.com it was really convinent since she didnt have to leave lagos.

@cocoama

You have to be strong to kill depression. I went through depression few years back,i lost interest in everything,i tried so much then to let people see the happy side of me while I cried inside when I was alone. There is always a cause of depression. I can only advice you to identify the cause of your depression and try everything possible to eliminate it. One thing that I know eliminate depression is love. It is either you are always around people you love or around people that love you.

thanks for the response. To be honest I have tried to get close to God for many many years and nothing. Nothing has happened and nothing has changed. So I really don't know anymore
A lot of my depression went when I lost my faith in the Holy church.
Re: Help! I Am Suffering From Depression by kriss63(m): 8:17pm On Sep 29, 2016
Hello people, my name is chris am 21 years old and i live in lagos nigeria.pls i have this problem but i doubt if it could be scoliosis because i dont experience normal pain except after carrying load or doing exercise.I noticed i can't put on certain clothes like long sleeve cause it wont fit my body and i look so awkward.i am slim but my shoulder looks round amd bulky not slim.I just went to igbobi recently to consult a doctor and he wrote adolescent scoliosis on the paper he gave me to take to the xray,i have been given appointment date to come, and the amount is 10k.The problem i have now is i dont know how to tell my mum (single parent) or any other because when i told her through whatsapp because i grew up with my grandma, she thought i was insane, and she was disappointed in me and telling me i should love myself and stuffs like that she even took me for deliverance.Apart from the shoulder i told her that i always see my nose so big on my face when am staring at things or people,even when i lie down or read, and i cant remember my past events, probably maybe because of depression, so this are all i am experiencing right now, pls i will be glad if anyone can advice me on what to do now,i love myself and i want to live happily,my mum said i shouldnt even mention it to her again.
