I had some problems a few years ago when my marriage ended. I sought help and was advised to take regular exercise. I didnt have the time or confidence to take up the gym or do any other routine exercise but decided to walk to and from work every day, instead of driving. It took a few weeks but I got much fitter and had a much better frame of mind as a result.

For a bandaid solution, eat something with endorphins like chocolates. :)

Be a volunteer in any religous group activities. You'll meet a lot people there. Some of them have a caring group where you can have lots of friends you can trust. If they have weekly prayer/bible study meeting try attending. :huh: You don't have to go through life feeling alone with various problems. There are millions of people out there. Some of them are sometimes going through the same feeling of depression. Its more of being brave enough to reach out to someone, even ask for help. :rolleyes:

anyways, one thing to fight depression is sa casino (if you have the money to spend)

if not, try going to ICON MAKATI , the jolly mood of the people there will surely relax you...

here are the things na ginawa ko

-didnt ate for several weeks(since nawalan ng gana)
-cry a lot(since i was in pain)
-reminisce(i think its normal and my way to pin point kung nasan ba ang mali)
-talk with people(at first parang naglalabas ng sama ng loob but lately na cocomfort na din ako at nakaka absorbed na din nga mga good points)
-na paparanoid ako 9well i think its normal)

-i spend time in front of my pc naglalaro ng kung anong lalaruin...(online games)


well nde ko namamalayan nakaka move on na ako...thou sa simula palagi pa din sasagi sa isip mo yung thoughts about that person....pero just like the old saying time heal all wounds....

everyone is not immune to depression. It is in the degree of affliction that matters. How strong you cope with it and how medications stabilizes you. I could not believe I would experience it, knowing that I am strong, studied didacted semesters about depression and its effects on us, yet when I have mild attacks of depression I literally don't know what to do. Each triggering situation is different and requires a variety of approaches. Nowadays, there are so many outlets of my depression, maybe one of them is MTC therapy.

my depressions are not that dibilitating that I cannot function. It sometimes , stops me dead on my tracts and hard to get up and function again. there would be a dull period in me that really keeps me from doing nothing. but once I get past that hump...i slowly recover.

I'm now considering getting professional help because I think I might have this depression thing. I don't see any point in life. Parang, "mamatay din naman tayong lahat eh. Ano pang rason na magpakahirap ako?" Don't get me wrong. Hindi naman sa gusto kong magpakatamad. In fact, I was recently awarded/recognized for being one of the top consistent producers in my company. However, I know I can do more than this. It's just that I don't see any point anymore... and I don't know why!

I have two daughters. People tell me that they should be my inspiration. I'm trying to do just that pero ang tumatakbo sa isip ko eh, "Pag namatay naman ako, may makukuha naman silang pera from the insurance. And I'm sure maaalagaan sila ng husto ng asawa ko. Kung father figure naman ang kailangan nila, I'm sure magkakaron sila." I'm not telling this to my wife, but that's really how I feel. Na parang mas mapapabuti pa sila kahit wala ako.

I'm constantly recognized for my talent and work, but I don't feel anything from those. There was even a recent incident wherein I was to be awarded thrice. I didn't even bother going up the stage twice. Parang wala lang talaga. I feel worthless. Parang wala naman talagang significance.

I don't know. I feel like I'm just waking up everyday only to sleep at night. I envy people around me who are so driven and passionate.

I wish I could just take a pill that would give me energy, passion, and kahit constant smile lang across my lips.


Shet. Ang drama ko. Ayan, dagdag depression na naman.

If you deliberately plan of being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you’ll be unhappy for the rest of your life. So great deal of being happy and not depressed is discovering your true purpose and fulfilling your greatest potential. ^_^
