Are depression and anxiety real? Or are they just being pussies?
>>
Very real but I'd imagine msot "depressed" people are just sad at the time and handed meds to deal with ti
>>
Depression's definitely real. Some people get enabled by the people trying to help them though. And some people are just attention seeking.

Real. I was on the verge of becoming an hero until I was forced to see a doctor. He prescribed me some pills I was supposed to take but after seeing at least one person somewhat care I just said fuck it, tossed the pills and went on about my life. I just have to live with the fact I'm most likely not going to be happy for the most part of my life, it's just a long journey of genuine good moments overshadowed by majority of shit but it's okay because most people need to be happy to live, I realized I do not.

Maybe you need to give a shit about someone else. Try helping people in your life. Spend some energy giving back. I've been straight up pulled back in to the land of the living by a few very kind people and it changed my life. I now keep my eyes peeled for people that need help and put my shoes on/get out of bed way early to make sure those people know they have atleast 1 person that gives a fuck. IKTF.

It's real, but it's not an excuse unless you have catatonic depression. My grandmother on my mom's side had that. Basically could do nothing but lie in bed all day, barely moving. She had a tough life, and this was a Soviet asylum, so it's not like she got great treatment.

However most cases of depression (like mine) can be fought against with exercise, work, good diet, etc. I still feel pretty shitty most of the time but I consistently make progress in my life and that makes me happy here and there. Drugs should be a last resort except for the aforementioned sever cases. I was put on so many awful medications by psychiatrists that made me fat, took away my emotion, gave withdrawal symptoms when I discontinued, etc. The pharma jew is evil. Neurochemically, we still know almost nothing about what causes it, so these drugs are basically like trying to get rid of a tumour with a shotgun.

No good deed goes unpunished. In my experience, helping other people is a black hole. 99.9% of them won't be there when you need them.

When people are depressed (and I guess I might have slipped down that way once upon a time) the way I find it's best to deal with it is to go exercise. I feel an issue with Depression and Anxiety is it's too easily diagnosed as an illness. A close friend of mine suffers from it. However it's not due to any real hardship but instead a chemical imbalance that tips the brain to think that way. To me that is legitimate and requires care. However too often we have people use depression to justify not being able to man the fuck up when something causes them to be on the back-foot.

When I was younger I found myself in a position of worry and I felt down but then I kept going and got through it, basically being the thing that gave me my current attitude in life. At my current age last year I got smacked with something life-changing and honestly after the immediate shock wore of being told the issue I was already off on the offensive on working through plan B in my scenario.

TL;DR Depression is being used an an easy excuse while people with an actual mental illness are not getting help because they don't fucking advertise it.
>>
>>144435646
It's not about that though and i'm not saying help everyone. Just saying that being there for people can be a net positive to some depressed bastard that never felt like anyone was there for him.
>>
>>144435909
I agree, which is why having a good family helps. I try to good things for them, which does make me happy.

Its as real as other emotions.
Drugging someone up for experiencing these common emotions is fucked up though. The drugs are just a cover up and don't actually solve the problem.
I suffered through depression growing up and I know that I will experience it again in the future. Getting over it is not easy, but I know that I have to tackle the source and not try to avoid or cover up the real cause like most faggots.

As real as a cough. And much like a cough they can have a long list of causes.

If you went to a doctor who said, yep you have a cough, take this cough suppressant, which makes you fat, impotent and suicidal for the rest of your life you’d find a new doctor. One that would get to the root cause of the cough.

Your grandma sounds like she might have been bipolar anon. my mom is bipolar and has episodes where she just lays in bed for days on end. Her doctor claimed she was depressed but she didn't get better until another doctor started treating her for bipolar disorder. Just a wild guess though, I'd have to actually meet your grandma to tell. I'm diagnosed with severe depression but I'm the same as you, I just get through it and do what I have to do. I feel like shit most days but part of me feels like that's how most people feel and it's not as unique as we like to think. Only thing that's ever helped me was Ritalin but that's only because it gave me a shit ton of energy.

This is truly the best thing you can do if you are depressed. On my worse days I go for a run and immediately feel better afterwards. Really the only times I'm actually happy are after a good work out. Even sex doesn't do it for me like working out does.

Depression is real. My mom has it and its not like she was sad and that's it. That's not depression. Depression is an actual mental illness and you do the weirdest shit. I know because I was a fucking child when her episodes started acting up and and looking back at it all that shit is surreal because the weirdest shit happened, it's not like she was threatening sucicide or acting hostile, just really weird.

A lot of people who are diagnosed with depression are just adrift in modern life I think, so their issues are real but can't be fixed from that perspective. Actual intractable depression is real as well though, however it works biologically.

I blame an adolescence worth of pot and porn and not socially pushing myself. Also self respect...how the fuck do i get that. Im very talnted but dont appreciate or "realize" it.

OP's pic is 10/10.
I swallowed the red pill, hard, during my service with 3 months left (thanks molymeme).
It was tough after that, but I went through with it.
I had made a contract, which I was beholden to even by the ideals I adopted through the awakening. I just had to ride it out till the end.

As for depression, I've never been truly depressed myself, despite my nationality.

Listen to your question, retard. Of course mood disorders are real. When someone can't deal with life, that's a mental problem. When millions of people have the same experience, it's a public health issue. Something about the times we live in is causing people to have trouble dealing with life. Maybe it's because they're pussies, but that doesn't matter, does it? They're still having the experience.

True clinical depression is extremely rare and is a result of a severe endorphin/neurotransmitter imbalance. Most people you hear about being "depressed" are just sad because of a current situation or their life status. Depression in the terms you are probably thinking is most definitely radical BULLSHIT.

Of course anxiety is real... it's a common emotional state and has been essential to human survival. However, having an anxiety disorder is very rare and most people who take pills for it these days are just fucking pussies or people who want to get high on Xanax.

Pharmaceutical companies are simply exploiting idiots to make ungodly amounts of money.

You are a fucking retard and should immediately harm yourself in some sort of severe manner for not knowing these incredibly basic concepts.

I think they're real conditions that most people allow to get out of hand.
People who are rabid about mental health seem to like to compare it to diabetes ("would you deny a diabetic insulin?") which is retarded, but I'll use it for analogy anyway
>be diabetic
>take insulin at regular intervals according to body weight, constantly monitor blood sugar levels, pay attention to nutritional content of diet
>watching yourself becomes a monotonous daily chore, but allows you to otherwise function like anyone else, live long and prosper
Or
>be diabetic
>take insulin only because you have to
>eat what you want and don't monitor your BSL
>fat and constantly tired, blame it on diabetes, die prematurely
OR
>be non-diabetic
>be a fat piece of shit with no regard for your diet whatsoever
>develop diabetes

People these days, especially youth, don't do anything about their depression. There's this whole air of "good to talk" where everyone has to be a shoulder for everyone else to lean on, but nobody is willing to change the lifestyle that leads to it. Most kids waste their time looking at memes in bed all day, and having a release is just fine. But when the release becomes the norm, you don't have a release from the release, and when it comes time to be responsible and go to class or find work or even go outside, fulfilling even the bare minimum is daunting. Most kids in this state are well aware that they bring this on themselves but don't want to change, and all of this of course feeds their mental illness, or creates it where there wasn't any in the first place.
All told, mental illness is your lot in life. If you want to be happy and successful, you have to accept it for what it is, deal with it, and not let it dictate who you are.

I posted already but the point is don't be ashamed of it, it's not like you're incontinent and your sphincter failed you in line at the grocery store. There are drugs and probably cognitive behavioural therapy that can help with that, i don't know what the rates for that are in the states or if you have insurance that covers it. I had a couple anxiety attacks in school and I never took drugs for it, I ended up dropping out because it helped me realize I didn't want to be there.
The most important thing is if that's how you feel about it, you're NOT a faggot bragging about muh anxiety. Those cunts usually don't even fit the criteria, or like I said in my other post don't do anything about it.
I'm not you and I don't know your story or circumstances, but it may be that you need a change in your life, and if you remember if you were stressing over something at the time that's probably what it is.
Don't suppress it, but don't just run away from it, find it and deal with it.
