When you’re depressed, you’re not interested in anything and you just want to lie in bed all day thinking and thinking until you thought of killing yourself. Stop that! And based on experience, you dont want to listen to any advice but still you have to really LISTEN before depression ruins your life.
What do I know about depression? I have been from what can I say a Major Depressive Disorder after I had my Schizophrenia Episodes. This depressive times made me lay in bed all day just thinking. It made me stop working. It made me a zombie. Just waking up and eat and sleep again. Its those times that made me want to kill myself. I have been in a rut myself and I just got out of it but sometimes it haunts me and made me want to go back in bed just when life is getting really good on me.
The morning sickness really had me. This made me stop work. The thought of working, not wanting to do the work in the morning made me dont want to get up. Getting up in the morning is really hard when your mentality is fixed on questions like why do I want to survive? What I do is answer it and find really good answers to those questions. Like I want to survive because I dont want to go back to being a wakeeatsleep zombie nothing. This answer made me get up in the morning.
Having a depression is really hard and its all in the head. You battle your own self and tricking it so you can go and battle the world. Its like everything around you is going to challenge you but your survival energy is at its lowest.
What did I do to battle all this?
*Ask help from family. I know this may sting, but financially you are not capable because of your depressive state. Families are not all the same but I doubt they will leave you with your condition.
*Work. As hard as it may sound, you need a job to give meaning to life and pay the bills.
*After work, watch TV shows. I know this may sound boring but this saved my life from not going to bed and think.
*Search on groups in Facebook that may arouse your interest. In my case, Meet and Make Japanese friends and Japanese Language Exchange. So your newsfeed will be covered with things that interest you.
*Post on facebook. Friends and family may see it and they may comment and you may not notice but youre actually reaching out to them and you will feel good.
*Coffee. I dont really know but coffee gives me energy.
*Count your blessings. It is not fair that you always complain about life when you have family, work and things that you need. Always thank God for everything and miracles will happen.
I am experimenting on my own. I dont have a therapist or a psychiatrist to help me get through this. I just read books about depression and everything that interests me. My suggestions may or may not help you but these are the factors that helped me.
