Those arent for your "bipolar" problems



My advice for handling depression is seek religion, tell someone you love them, and get alot of excersize

Uh, my mom does. Depression, anxiety, and stress. She takes medication and I think one of them is potassium pills or whatever. She also goes to group therapy every few weeks. I'm guessing they're helping because she says so and claims that she has gotten "closer with God." I hear her laughing more too.

I've chronic depression. I do not take pills. I can keep myself under control so that I don't do stupid things.

Generally, I just think about my future, and what I aim to do in it, and how I'm going to reach that goal. That's what I do to 'talk' myself out of self-injury, other persons-injury, or just laying about on the couch like a lazy bum.

I'm going through something like depression, I guess. I really wanna see this girl, but my parents are getting in my way, and it's made me really sad.

I know I've been through it before, though.

As for treatments. Well, other then prescription drugs, I don't know. I overcame past depression by letting it pass by. It hurt, but it didn't last. A good thing to do is find out what exactly is depressing you. You might not really know.

I have, and still do from time to time, but it's not nearly as bad as it once was. I've known quite a few people who've been much worse off than me so I count myself lucky.

Exercise helps. A lot.

Oddly enough, the only time I've ever "struggled with depression" was when I was on anti-depressants that I didn't need (this was a few years ago). Imagine that: giving people medication they don't need screws them up!

Well, if you interpret "freedom of religion" as the right to believe whatever you want without the government telling you otherwise, then it certainly applies to atheists as well.

I've had a depression problem since my father passed away, I lost my first child (miscarriage) broke up with this girl that I fell in love with for a year recently, and finanicial problems because of the economy but I've found that exercising really does help a lot.

I'm Biopolar and I've been struggling with a lot of problems lately (grandfather dying, relationship problems, school problems, other anxiety problems, getting bullied)... usually I just try to think of other things like Politics or Video Games.
