Depressed And Need Help by depressedgurl: 3:33pm On Jun 18, 2016
Hello. I am severally depressed and I feel sad and empty. I just wanted to know if there are any other depressed people around here and if they have done anything to help with this? Any websites, support forums, medication etc that can be of help.


I just feel at my wits end and don't want to feel this way anymore :-(

I do not have any supportive family and I do not have any friends. I am all alone in this which makes it even harder because I feel so lonely.

Have you gone to see a counselor? Have you discovered your "escape routes"?

What I mean by escape routes is that, have you found something that relieves you from your depressed state? Maybe activities?? hobbies?

I think you need a counsellor, that would really help.

Baby, you feel depressed and lonely because your mind tells you so. Everything begins with you. Your mind especially. How do you see yourself? Just note that no one is perfect. Everyone has one issue or the other bothering him/her but the way the person manages it is what makes people to know or not to know.

When u are not happy with yourself, it may affect you and make you stoop low. You compare yourself with others and see the bad side of u, that's the beginning of inferiority and people may take advantage.

Just look out for that thing in you people love about you, that good thing you can do. Just think positively about yourself and learn to mingle with matured mind.

I myself have sometin bordering me but I smile, laugh and joke a lot that you wouldn't know.

Cheer up dear, even being alive is a good reason to be happy.

You can add me up if you wanna be my friend.

I was expecting a mail from you i guess you changed your mind, so i will just do my thing here, so here it goes, the thing about depression is that you forgot all the have going for you and only focus on the negative, what do i mean ? take for instance I do get depressed alot, because i think heavily and majorly my depression stems from money, not having friends to confide in and other deeper issues. The thing is you need to focus on the positive,

Now I don't know much about you,

but i can tell you some few things:

1. The fact you are on nairaland it either means you owe a smartphone and are capable enough to load it with data to browse the internet, right now at this point i would say

A major percent of those who are poor won't mind switching positions with you.

2. Two you sound learned and that means you are educated, in other words in some ways you are privileged, am sure you know a lot of people ain't that much previledge and i can bet they won't mind switching places with you.


So the main question is that why are depressed, people are depressed over many issues, my ranges from depression of not being in a relationship for years, feeling alone as most people don't contact me unless they need to ask for cash, depression also from the feeling of feeling powerless as there are ideas in my head which i can't execute because of money, depression of cash, depression just because of no reason, sometimes i just feel sad for no reason and can't even point to what's causing it.

So you might ask ? how do i cope ? Depression comes from the mind (I presume) so i kinda try to occupy myself, either am reading, playing games or trying to go for events, there are tons of events, you can go for, check eventbrite.com and also if being "fat" is what you are being depressed about, then am sorry to say that's a waste of time, I have seen fatter people who seem more happy than me, and they attract alot of people, naturally people are attracted to positive energy.

And i noticed you said medically not sure about you, but I smoke weed when the depression is really that bad, I won't advise that for you, because in that state ave taken decisions that i've come to regret.

So what is my advice:

1. Find an activity that will task you mentally and Intellectually, I for instance prefer to spend my time contributing to open source projects and communicating with other developers from other countries and also trying to under emulation(possible i might never understand it till i die).

2. Find a community , could be a community of people with similar interest, I have a website where i registered because i play a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Role Playing Game) and i talk with other members from the game, this is fantasy and takes my mind off bigger issues. you could join a community of dog lovers, or whatever rocks your boat.

3. Use this time to think about Projects, it could be something like building a computer or business idea or anything

4. Play Computer games especially fantasy based games, this works for me because i get carried away with the concept of a different world

5. Go swimming, trust me you will meet people there anyway, after all most guys try to pick up on chics by teaching them how to swim cheesy

But whatever you do, try not to be negative and don't stay Idle for too long, if not your mind will start to wander and dwell on negative thoughts.


However my only concern is that hope you are not those types of people who like to feel sad and gain pity from people because that will just be pathetic, I know such people like that exist.

So take care and have fun, and remember no weed kiss
