Love the way most of the people in this post are in the wrong place, since they think "Being Sad" and "Having depression" is the same concept.

That's even harder. You were not depressed and your anti-depressent doesn't make you depressed?

Well psychologically you can be "depressed" after being sad for 2+ weeks, clinical depression is a whole 'nother story though,
#465 to #42 - fractalius (02/19/2013) [-]
"Being sad" =/= depression.

Having no motivation to do anything, because you cannot fathom the idea of anything good coming your way,

Literally having to hold yourself up the entire day, to keep from just rolling over and dying,

Not even trying to tell yourself that you'll get over it anymore, because you know the last time you thought you finally decided to kick this thing, it didn't work. Same with the other 5 times,

That's depression. I'm no longer depressed, but this picture is really goddamn accurate. It starts with feeling sad, having a bad day, and it builds. And it eats away at you. And anyone who tries to talk **** about someone that is depressed is an asshole and a retard.

I know it's not just an excuse, because I used to have it, and with help from people that care about me, I got past it.
#618 to #465 - vaskaduzea (02/19/2013) [-]
i have no motivation but i am never "sad" is there some kind of depression where you are happy and normal and **** but you still don't care about anything that happens in your life or to people around you ? am i that cold hearted ?
#634 to #618 - fractalius (02/19/2013) [-]
It's not just that you don't have any motivation, it's that you just can't see any point in trying anymore. Essentially you've given up on life because you think you have failed at it entirely.

****		 ,i never knew i was depressed then again i didn't knew i had to wear glasses if the teacher didn't mention it.   
I never noticed it because i thought this is how everybody is living , i never understood how ppl can be happy because of nothing, it is as if " a jewish or a muslim who never tasted bacon, and will never give it a try, they'll never know what they're missing and will never think about it's lack as a problem"   
Day by day i became numb and thought everybody is the same, so i never spoke about it.

I was in therapy two times and both times the doctor just kept laughing all time while we were talking. I didn't feel secure at her. So I cancelled it. I can't look people in the eyes while talking about my problems. So, maybe I'm self diagnosed, but hell, I'm not going to trust any therapist any more ever

Ok, time for serious time for people who feel depression.

It's natural, it's part of being human. We feel pain, but much like a superficial wound the pain eventually goes away as your soul heals itself. But sometimes the damage to our soul is so great that we never heal completely, we become colder and try to avoid putting ourselves in the position to be hurt again. We block people from getting close enough to hurt us, this is a defense mechanism. But to move on we have to recognize that this is what we are doing... we have to let down our guard and live life. Joy, happiness and love are the only emotions that are strong enough to beat depression. You just have to open yourself up to feeling those emotions again.

I've been "clinically depressed" when my wife died, then a few years later the woman I was seeing that I was deeply in love with left me. I know what the pain of losing a companion is like. I even attempted to commit suicide, twice. But then I discovered how to beat depression, and I did it by not allowing myself to be alone. I made friends, adopted a dog, and made it a point to try to spread laughter by being a funny guy around the people I worked with. It does get better, but you have to find the strength in yourself to pull yourself up and not give up, only you have the ability to make yourself happy.

WARNING: brony STORY AHEAD
sorry if you (or anyone reading this) hate/dislike bronies, but they saved my life, and are continuing to save it every day, when i was just 3 years old (15 years ago) my parents divorced, while i have gotten over that, i'm stating it to bring up my next point. about 3 years afterward, my dad remarried to a woman named mary ann (to simply be dubbed "MA" from this point on) and to this day i do not have any clue why he married her, but that's beside the point, for their entire 5 years of marriage it was fight after fight after fight, only one of which my father actually started. fast forward to 2007, 2 years after they divorced, MA files a restraining order against my dad out of the blue, because she thought, and i quote "i think he's trying to kill me for my life insurance policy" a life insurance policy that was canceled a years before the final divorce papers went through (yes, she's practically retarded, it's a miracle she's lived this long without drowning in her soup) thankfully the judge denied it, but since then, my father has had to keep every receipt/paycheck/text message he's gotten to keep her from trying again. fast forward to 2008, first year of high school, while in middle school i had only had a very small handful of friends, i could count on one hand how many i had, so going into high school with no friends... you can see how that goes, so add that on top of the stress that me and my family have gone through at the expense of this psychotic woman, we now fast forward to november 2011, the bitch shows up at our door, looking for a place to stay, because she is divorcing another husband, and my dad lets her in because she promises to help pay bills around the house, and also that "i've changed, i've gotten so much better than i was when we were together" and for the first few weeks, it does look like she's changed, she hasn't started any fights, she payed off half of our bills


continued in next comment, running out of room
User avatar #575 to #573 - burdenedsoul (02/19/2013) [-]
and she even drives me and my brother around town whenever we want to go somewhere, now, i had discovered mlp, and the amazing fandom by this time, which helped me out of my earlier depression, by finding something that warmed my heart and kept me happy, (listen to "smile smile smile" from the show, and you'll see why) but then, fast forward a month, dad takes her to a gig (he's a drummer in three different cover bands in the portland area) and she gets HAMMERED as **** and starts screaming at him when he's on a break about how "you ignore me all the time, i'm not going to be with someone who ignores me" (they were together in the first place? wut?) and embarrassing him in front of his band members and his crowd, and the owner of the place, because she's a ******* moron. and from that point on, she just gets worse, and worse, and worse, saying, on a regular basis, that we don't do **** for her, and we never pay any of the bills, blah blah blah. now fast forward to september 2012, we get evicted from our house because the owners wanted to sell the property, so dad (thinking clearly, huduurrrr) lets her move into the new place with us, and allowing her continued reign of terror over us. fast forward two months, rent needs to be payed, and we're coming up short, so she lets a few people she met and became friends with in the time dad and MA were divorced move in and become room mates, and help pay rent, one such person in aaron, her step son from her recent divorce, and this guy (he's 22) is a punk, he destroys stuff around the house, he breaks my dads tools, and, because of MA, he has absolutely no respect for me, my dad, or my brother, because of all the stupid **** talk she spat when she was still married to jim (aaron's dad) about how horrible we are as people, and a few days ago, my dad found out that he had drilled a hole in the gas tank of his truck, to steal some gas from him, and plugged it with a screw

continued in next comment
User avatar #582 to #575 - burdenedsoul (02/19/2013) [-]
and so, after doing nothing but try and help aaron, and getting it shoved right back up his ass, dad's had enough, so he called the cops, filed a report, and he'll be paying for repairs, plus fines, but when MA hears about this, she flips, and starts defending aaron the vandal, saying that we have no right to turn him in for destroying our **** . we cant say any cross word about her, or anyone else in this house in front of her, or she flips out, and goes on a tangent of retarded bitchy-ness, so now, we hide our feelings, we hide them away, or we get the stupid bitch treatment, and i've only held it in for so long because of my fellow bronies, because of the kindness, the generosity, the loyalty, the honesty, and the laughter that they give me on a regular basis, and it's magical what a few heartfelt smiley faces and "stay strong"'s can do to fend off depression and sadness, on the most extreme of levels. it is safe for me to say that had i not discovered mlp and the bronies, i would not be here to type out these three long comments

moral of the story, these "faggots" as most of you call them, these kindhearted, "faggots" have kept me alive, by simply upholding the three definitive words of a brony... love, tolerance, and brotherhood

i love them with all my heart, and i owe them my life, and i will never give them up, never betray them, and never stop being one of them

You have to figure that out for yourself. But you might try talking to people and actually caring about what they have to say. That's at least an attempt, and that's all you have to do is attempt.

What do you enjoy doing? My best guess is that if you figure that out, you will figure out where to meet people with the same interests as you. Those people, the people who are most like you, are going to be the people that you most easily connect with.

Like in Katawa Shoujo, a school designed for people with special needs, those people know that there are others around them that know what it is like going through what they have gone through. This allows them to connect with others, like Hisao Nakai, was able to.

Mate, you got interests up the butt, so you shouldn't be too far off from just finding people at random who like the same **** . And yes, it's hard and I'm also terrible at it.

btw, if you live in any sort of larger city, there should GENERALLY be some sort of 'nerd' hangout. This should help you with the video game business if you don't find anyone online. ;) Also, people everywhere are impressed by sculpting.

Anime too, eh? (guess I should've figured that out from your pictures...) Just more to help you get a wedge in with all the creepy nerds that build hideouts exclusively out of old video game consoles and Warhammer miniatures (note: This is actually what it can look like).

But yeah. Anyone who toys around with art will at least have something people are willing to talk about, even if it's poni or Rin. Look around town! If you can't find something near you, online can help. Or, as you say, library might be good. I've never really figured libraries to be a place to talk to people, but that's mostly because I hide in a corner and read my ****** fantasy.

well thats as simple as going to the nearest convention, i'm going to everfree northwest this summer, even though it'd be a four hour drive up there, i'm still going. and with nothing but bronies going to these cons, chances are very high that you'll find someone that lives near you (maybe even a female to get fancy with) so don't think you're alone out there, we're everywhere

and if you can't afford the trip, try selling some pony sculptures, raise a little money to help pay for it, hell, i'd buy one if i had the money right now

#529 to #503 - pachecodos (02/19/2013) [-]
As thexxtalonxx says, just talk.
Nobody has too much friends and we are social animals. So, although you may think you seem crazy talking to someone you don't know, it doesn't bother anyone. Even if it might seem strange, most people won't see a problem in it.
Just talk a little bit and then go. You don't have to get to be friends the first time. Give yourself time. Talk one day, then another, then more, etc. You may connect or you may not, but there's a big chance you get a friend.
If I'm in a bar and some dude I see sometimes around talks to me I will think it's strange. But it won't bother me. That's the important thing. We are not used to meeting people we don't know. So it might feel strange, but that doesn't mean it's bad.

About the place, I would recommend you try to join some club or activity where there will be people u meet regularly. Painting club, judo club, anything of the sort.
--------
The secret to making friends is that. Nobody has enough friends. So, although it may be strange to talk to some unknown person, it's not bad.
Even people with friends like to meet new people.

P.D: sometimes, something as easy as saying hi can change a relationship. I met some friend's friend one night. We talked a little bit. But whenever we saw each other in the neighbourhood we said hi. Only hi. Now, I don't really know him but if I meet him in somewhere I can talk to him.

Dude, I know this sounds stupid but seriously, start exercising. Use your depression to make you angry that your not happy, then use that anger to power you mentally to push you further and further each time you exercise. I've only been hitting the gym for a month but my god, I'm viewing everything in my life in a more positive way. Stay strong op

Also you're a faggot
User avatar #302 to #197 - forbesydemon (02/19/2013) [-]
An anon with a valid point? Been a while since I've seen one of these. But yes, they're right. I suffered from crippling depression and got recommended exercise. At first it was like 10min walks with close friends and family and it eventually grew to minor gym-work, then going on runs etc. It makes you feel great. And I'd recommend cardio rather than lifting, just out of personal experience.

This. Anti-depressians haven't worked for me, but I started hitting the gym mid-december, and it has made so much difference. Even though I'm not cured from the decease, I have a reason to get up in the morning.
#603 to #197 - anon (02/19/2013) [-]
I actually used anger as a deflection in order to stop being depressed.
I ended up secretly hating absolutely everyone. Even my friends. I only hung around them because I was so lonely.

That lasted around two and a half years.
I still think it was better than being sad all the time though. For me, anyway. Before that I was crying and hitting blunt objects against my head.

Same here, man. I was depressed a few years ago and then started working out; the exercise makes you feel accomplished, releases endorphins, and makes you look better.

When you're depressed you don't have the energy to exercise. You just want to sleep, sleep and sleep.

There's a difference between sadness and depression and there's an even bigger difference between depression and plain self pity.   
   
It's the same with depression as it was with all the &quot;introverts&quot; on funnyjunk, I'm sure there's actually real depressed people here, but I do belive there's an awful lot of self-diagnosed losers who keep using it as an excuse for being a little bitch.   
   
If you have the real condition then it's pretty serious, but i've seen too many people who love being &quot;sad&quot; and having all the attention they getting and they use it as something to show up for people to make them feel sorry for them, they get rewarded when they're acting sad and that becomes a habit.   
   
I have nothing against depressed people, but I don't think that many people on funnyjunk realize what it's mean to be really depressed.
