This.

Get yourself to a trusted councillor asap.

Have you altered or neglected to take your meds?

Not being flip or disrespectful. Yours is a serious condition.

Get thee some help brother.


Cheers,

RR

This is serious business.  I had a good friend who suffered from this for decades.  Emotions are not causal primaries in cognition.  There is no reason for accepting depression or mania as a chronic state.  I can only suggest getting what I think is called a cognitive therapist, one who identifies the thinking and ideas you hold about the world and yourself and relates those to your emotions, good or bad.  Otherwise you'll just get a bag of drugs to take and a complete lack of understanding of your malady.

Of possible assistance:

This in spades.

It has been my experience that being able to dis-identify with the emotional responses to whatever I think is the key. In other words, you don't have to believe your thoughts.

Hang in there brother! As someone who has family on both sides with this condition I can tell you it does get better with proper treatment. Get the help you need and don't feel bad if you need time away from your normal routine. Sending good vibes and positive energies your way.

It's a scary place to be, I myself suffer with depression amongst other 'problems', I know how impossible and distressing things can feel at times, it's not a path to even try walking alone Buddy, please please try to get some help before the depression gets so dark you can't even get outside.

So sorry to learn that LT.  As pointed out earlier, that's a toughy to share with others too; takes real courage.  

In my humble experience I believe that meds provide a good stable foundation to start to address the underlying root cause which of course is the work of the counsellor.  

You can manage this LT (Jimmy Morrison seemed to think so too) and you've got a whole load of support from your friends here at the BoB...

Warmest wishes,

Stick.

I have some family members with the same and similar diagnoses.

Get help. See a therapist, get medicine. It's a chemical imbalance.

There is no shame in getting help.

As others have said here, it takes great strength to talk with others regarding depression. Please do get in touch with a professional sooner than later. Depression is a serious condition that many times isn't taken seriously. I'm not that far of a drive from you here in NKY if you need someone to talk to and of course, the phone is always there too. I know sometimes it just helps to get things off your chest. I also know a few counselors in this area that I could check with to find someone local to you as well. Just remember, you are not alone and you don't have to go through it alone.

That's a hard thing to admit brother. I agree with others, that you do get help. You always have the support and help of the fine people here, you are not alone.

My best friend from childhood who I love dearly, frankly he's like a brother to me, has suffered from manic depression his entire life. I agree with the others LT, please seek help.

Take care man, & I wish you the best in getting things right..  Smile

I think we will be amazed to know just how many people in our close circle suffers from depression.

I've been on meds myself for more than 20 years. But that's only treating the symptoms. I need to go see a shrink (meant in a nice way) from time to time. They help me to get focused again. I think I might need to go soon !!!!!

But sure it's not nice, no.....it's bloody bad to be there in the darkness.

So my brother, please know that you are in my thoughts.

Lots of truth in that. It's funny how emotional/mental health issue are among the hardest to speak candidly about, yet so many people deal with it the support base is massive. I had significant anxiety issues for a period of time about five years back - I found that once I was comfortable enough to talk about about it openly, it really is shocking how many people have been through/are going through the exact same thing.

Best to you, LT - get whatever sort of help it is you need, and get yourself well. We're all pulling for you!

I couldn't afford a therapist but a great wife and a wonderful little dog made life worth living. The meds really did the job.

Thanks guys. I do see a Psychiatrist and am on Meds. I have been disabled by this disease for four years and find that I have been made permanently disabled. I really hate that because there are so many things I want to do, but my brain will not let me; even on meds.

When I can crawl out of the abyss I still have cognitive problems and worry about going manic as I was the night I wrote the call for help. Right now I am back to my art and am puttering along. I really feel gratified that I have so many caring friends here at BoB. Your care has really helped calm the manic spell and made the deep depression I have been having lighter. I know mania and depression will always trouble me, but friends really help.

Thanks,

Chris
