FUCK. Forgot sex/masturbation. That would be mine, FO SHO. Specifically masturbation.

#3 Posted by ThrustMuscle (52 posts) -

I train. The endorphins from exercise are better than any anti-depression pill on the market. Also, at the end of the day, you have bettered yourself.

No all of the above option?

You also forgot all of the above

Oh, jeez. My poll is a disaster. I'm getting so depressed.

Video Games or sleep.  lately i just go home and go to sleep, i dont even play nearly as many games as i'd like to.
 
WAIT A MINUTE I'M NOT DEPRESSED!! 
i'm just a teenager and i think we all know how that is.  getting angry about, lots of useless things, super low self esteem, acting like a selfish prick 24/7 without knowing it, then feeling horrible when you realize how shitty you've been to everyone. 
 
also this is a depressing thread.

Alcohol. Why feel bad when you can feel good.

sleeping in works.

Manning up usually helps.

Well the depression I'm talking about is more a result of inheriting it from your parent(s); and although most would think it is still controllable with the right mindset, they underestimate the power emotions have on us, or they simply don't understand how intense those emotions can get; they influence your actions and thoughts, and you almost never even realize it until your whole day is turned upside-down. And that's just me saying it's hereditary; it can also be an unlucky combination of both genetics and how the individual is raised. I try to live my life by the 'not givin' a fuck' flow, but it's sometimes not in my control.
#14 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6399 posts) -

Usually a combination of friends, video games, and exercise. I generally try not to give a fuck also, but I know I can never let some things go even though I know that I should.

It's 99% of the time started from a woman too. Fuck.

You forgot self-loathing and self-harm.

I thought about it, but then figured people might actually think I'm suicidal or something, and I'd feel like a jerk making people think that. Your avatar reminds me that I forgot caffeine; tea, specifically, for myself.

Just grit your teeth and continue endorsing that beautiful self-loathing. It's the Wambaugh Curve--we all go through it. Well, all except our partly-mechanised and gullible friend Dave Holden.

It's a complex issue. You feel awful but on the other hand you don't want to feel that way since you know people might worry about you. Which is selfish in a way but it can't be helped. Self-loathing and self-harm are justifications for some people for feeling like crap. As least, it is for me. (Not that I intend of offing myself soon but I won't deny I haven't tried on different occasions). Also, I've reminded myself that I need tea and breakfast.

Video Games. I got dumped a few days before Skyrim came out. Got over it really fast.

#20 Posted by oatz (1103 posts) -

I'm not depressed.

#21 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Masturbation.

Stop being so depressing, you guys.

#22 Posted by Master_Funk (737 posts) -

Watching giant bomb videos and training mainly helped me during tough times

#23 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

The only kind of depression I get now is from the cold weather and the time change. Last week was fucking hell for me. A combination of martial arts training, video games, and eating too much food gets me through. Listening to fun music helps, but sometimes I'm in a bad enough mood so that it just pisses me off.

Writing.

#26 Posted by UTBTSC (8 posts) -

You got that right sir. That's one of the best remedies. Also, video games.

#27 Posted by Mars_Cleric (1595 posts) -

I find being around friends helps take my mind off it

#28 Posted by Nick (672 posts) -

I was looking for jerkin it, just put denial instead.

Denial.

By diagnostic definition, crippling depression would encompass depressed mood most of the day for weeks along with Anhedonia (decreased interest in things once found enjoyable). Thus, none of the above would be the most applicable option for those with crippling depression.

#31 Posted by Jimbo (9862 posts) -

Poorly.

#32 Edited by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -


You forgot suicide...? A drastic solution, but damn, it works really well!
 
Now for real, I quit drinking last year's Easter, so that's not an option. My GP prescribed me some anti depressants to get me through the first two/three months or so, then I stopped taking them. 

When I feel down, an evening stroll through the local park (Outdoor Activities), followed by a good nights sleep proves to be beneficial.

Also, visiting family and/or friends and playing videogames are helpful aids to get me through dire emotional moments.

I suffer from severe depression, and by severe I mean extreme severe depression. It's so bad that during my sad phases I cry every day for weeks at a time, with a few days every so often where i'm doing a bit okay. It's awful, a simple thought triggers another, then another, which ends up me trembling down a hill of negative thinking until i'm breaking down in my room for 2 hours straight. I think I have bipolar II.

I think I have bipolar II.

I have a history of bipolar disorder in my family. I'm actually the best off out of all the men in my immediate family, but my oldest brother is the worst, a lot like you it seems. His -- I guess -- isn't technically bipolar disorder because it doesn't happen for weeks on end and then switch off. What happens, is every day of his life he's susceptible to becoming irrevocably depressed; it's like he falls into a deep, dark pit, and can't get back out. It happens as quickly as a flick of a light switch, and for seemingly no reason; even he doesn't know why it gets triggered. He's tried doctors and pills and pills and pills ever since he was a little kid, but nothing has actually helped him, and a lot of the doctors seem to make it worse. He typically feels the best for the longest periods when he is just away from doctors and not taking pills. He's 31, has a great girlfriend, and has a good job, and most people think he's the nicest and most charming person they've ever met. I've never seen him cry, but then again some people just don't cry. Not trying to one-up you on your depression story, but just thought I'd share.

Not depressed at all, I am always full of joy.

I have so much joy right now. You guys don't even know.

I'm pretty depressed right now, but I have REASON TO BE, and I know what'll fix it, but that has to wait until like christmas or something so I just look forward to that.

#39 Posted by chrismafuchris (1088 posts) -

I've never understood the concept of "crippling depression". Does it insinuate that one becomes depressed to the point that they become lame and wheelchair bound? How does that work?

As far as the question goes, I like to exerciser whenever life gets me down. It gets the dopemine flowing.

Back when I was a moody fuck this was my solution. Wank until I passed out.

I dont think Ive ever been depressed.  Ive been sad for a couple months once but I dont think that would ever count.  And it was for something really silly.  I dont even know what I would do....  See a specialist?

Then why aren't you played Uncharted 3 multiplayer anymore?! I'll serve us up a couple of rainbows and we can sour high over this pesky ''real world'' stuff!

How do I deal with my crippling depression? Why, the same way I deal with my self-diagnosed asperger's, OCD and anxiety disorder, of course!

#44 Posted by ajamafalous (12029 posts) -

I drink heavily.

#45 Posted by RollingZeppelin (2023 posts) -

I usually just wait it out until my brain chemically rebalances itself. Usually takes between a couple day to a couple weeks, depending on whether I'm under stress or not.

#46 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Self-loathing and self-depreciating. Some call it stand-up comedy.

Same here. When I got the flu I didn't train for a week, and got increasingly more moody. Now that I'm back to training three times a week again, I feel much better.

#48 Posted by Toxin066 (3301 posts) -

I deal with it by masturbating frequently.

#49 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

I write, usually.

Get over it -- that's how people deal with depression. Sitting in your bad mood doesn't ever help.
