Anyone else ever dealt with depression? Lately I've been feeling really down in the dumps. Not the normal feeling down but like a lower level of downess. Im just really sad. I'm not looking for anyones sympathy so please. im just curious if anyone has ever dealt with depression and how they deal with it. If I had insurance I would think about going to see a doc.

Do more cardio, take fish oils, drink green tea, jerk off less, adjust diet, phenibut and other nootropics if necessary...

if all else fails, inject testosterone in abundance and chew on dbol like tic tacs

I read on article on CNN about an unofficial diagnosis called "almost depression".  The way it was described was pretty much spot on to how I feel at times.

Alcohol is pretty much the only thing that can depress me, along with a bad skag from coke but I don't really use it often

I get wicked seasonal affective disorder if I don't supplement w vitamin D.

Beyond that, I'd imagine getting in shape and finding gainful employment will go a long way towards your sense of well-being

You need to identify the cause and correct that.

I should be happier now that I've got a job now but I'm not. I made a lot of mistakes in my life and am sorry for it. But I can't go back in time and fix these things. Am I doomed to suffering?  Sad

Cocaine and a hooker.    I'll send you a bill later-  Hell even better, I'll bill your insurance company.

Hope this is a serious post because I will answer it like it is.  I have and am suffering now.  I know what you mean about knowing it is not the normal blues but much worse.  You just know inside it is not normal.  I did go to a shrink on was put on medication and looking back I am not sure how much it helped.  It may or may not have.  All I know is that it was not easy by any means.  I found that there were certain people who could just make me feel better and "forget" about it all while I was with them.  Seek these people out and be around them whenever possible.  I wish I had a concrete answer to give you about how to get through it but there is none other than if you feel it is going too far into the darkness and you are going to hurt yourself, go to a hospital tell them what you are thinking and let them help you.  Other than that, try to find anything positive that does not hurt others that you can do to boost your mood.  There are supplements and drugs that help but they are not a cure.  The only cure is unfortunately time because it feels like it will never end.  It does though.  Good luck to us both, I know I need it.

Lighten up my man. Nothing is that bad. Watch a few comedy skits on YouTube. Take a trip (even if you have to borrow the money; which I don't advise if you're a dumbass with money), or new hobby. Sounds lame but it works.

If all else fails, look at a few photos 'BigMac (meal)' posted. The delusion should inspire hysterical laugher  Cheesy

I agree. Most depression is due to environment IMO Just change your environment.

Oh boy are we in the same boat.  You will get told over and over the truth but will not accept it until you are ready to and then you will feel better.  I know because I am the same way.  The truth is that a lot of the time I blame myself COMPLETELY for everything that has gone wrong or anything bad that happened to me.  That is simply not true.  Am I responsible partially?  of course.  It is when I drive myself crazy by blaming myself fully for everything that I get really depressed and anxious.  I need to take my own advice more often so I know how hard it is.  Just try not to blame yourself completely and like you said there is nothing you can do to change what happened.  Focus on what you have some power over:  what you do and feel from now on.  You got to me with your post.  I feel the same thing all the time and when I let it become all i think about is when I get really down.  Try looking at IronMeister's photoshops if you need a laugh.  I don't care how depressed I am, seeing all his Tbombz photoshops makes me laugh every time.

This is a serious post. I think that's good advice about finding someone that would make me happy. But I fear that would just mask the depression temporarily and then if I breakup with that person or something happens I would be back in the dumps again. I don't want to be too dependent on someone.

I think the cause is internal. So he needs to search within.

Not so sure everything can be fixed. Sometimes you have to reap what you sow.

Doesnt need to be romantic in fact probably shouldnt be in the shape you are in.  I meant your mom, dad, sister, whoever.  Yeah romantic stuff when depressed will NEVER end well.  Stay away.  Lean on the people you know you can trust and whom trust you.  Just open up to someone and when all that pain comes out it is like a weight is off of you.  IT wont get better instantly but you will improve for sure.  I really feel for you man, I am also going through this and have gone through it before so i know how hard it can be.  The guilt and self-loathing is so toxic to your soul.  just keep reminding yourself that you are sorry for what you did or what happened and that you will not do it again.  The future is wide open but the past is closed.   You will notice though that as time passes you will come back to life again.  Unless you found out you have some terminal disease and are going to die soon, EVERYTHING else will pass.
