Depression question.

Geniune question.....How many of the depression sufferers on here have a daily routine off work? Go the gym and eat the correct food? After reading the lets get healthy thread, overweight people actively try and change their lifestyle to change their appearance, how many depressives do the same? Its no good staying up late watching raw, eating and drinking shit with no job to go to in the morning. If a lot more people got a job and a routine, went the gym and did not spend their lifes on their laptop or phone i think i think both mentally and phsically the would be better off.

True. If only a Depressive would stop being so lazy and get a job, it's that easy isn't it? It would solve all their problems and issues at the drop of a hat. Same as someone with a broken leg, if only they tried not having a broken leg everything would smell of roses. Instead of manure, like your post.

And of course those depressives with a job are just whinging for a laugh and to get sympathy. Silly cunts.

I do think that the term "depression" get's thrown around too much of late though, with doctors seemingly happy to label anyone who's currently unhappy with their lives as depressed.

 

That doesn't really help those who are genuinely depressed unfortunately.

That's the difference between feeling depressed and being depressed though. Maybe more people are being diagnosed because there isn't the stigma attached to mental health issues as much as there was? Plus the advancement of medical understanding towards it is better than it was.

 

To quote a great talk I saw about MH, "We look back in horror 50 years ago at how mental health was dealt with then, in 50 years time we will look back in horror at how we treat mental health now"

I know four people back home that are "depressed". They all seemed to develop the same mindset around the time that one of them realised they could get extra unemployment money from it, and that the jobcentre would be less likely to hassle them about work.

 

They only get depressed from Monday to Thursday as well, because they emerge on a Friday all ready to rock & roll through the weekend with their mates. And I mean every weekend, like clockwork.

 

Maybe that is real depression right enough?

There's no doubt that a healthy lifestyle helps. I worry that some of those who post in the depression thread also drink heavily. That doesn't help at all. And exercise really helps dispell negative thoughts.

 

They are tactics to reduce the impact of Stress and depression. Not a cure.

Well, you've said they are swinging the lead and indeed some do, but don't tar us with the same brush. The vast majority need the help provided.

 

As Loki said, there are things that can help, but first you need to be mentally ready to do it. Do you think I want to be off sick from work and risk losing my job, my income, my home? Yeah I'll have a duvet day and the stress that comes with it. But your last line, David, can fuck off.

I do suffer from depression, have done for years, fed up with people who have stubbed their toe or have an ill pet saying they are depressed. Jobs are genuinally easy to find though, just because its something you dont want to do, do it. Get a foot in the door of employment and the rest will follow. More people are lazy wannabe depressives now than ever before. I have no gripe with people with depression or the unemployed. I just wish people wouldnt use the term as a crutch for all their lazy behavior.

As a long time reader here i believe people have just inhabitted the depression thread when they are hungover or pissed off.

Ruby Wax is to blame as well. Nowadays its cool to be depressed. Like everyone of the main posters on here, they are all depressed. I doubt it. I have a degree in human behavior, i wont use the real term. This forum is a classic case of sheep behavior.

 

What is it with coucilors aswell. They are another prerequitive of a wanabe depressive. It is like its cooler to have a counciler than a good looking chick these days.

If it's cool to be depressed I wish I was the un coolest fucker on the planet if it meant I didn't have to live with it every fucking day.

 

That thread, which you know exists so why not use it, has been a fantastic support tool for a lot of people, and it some just want to sound off in there, let them.
