Everything is temporary. Life is temporary. I am also one of those who has had issues with depression for many years. However, during those years there have been many better times than others. Every person in life has certain things they have to deal with. For some, depression is just one of those items. For others, it maybe having some physical handicap or disability. Not trying to be fatalistic here, but realistic. I found that once I accepted I was going to have depression forever and then started to learn how to work with it as best as I could, that my outlook changed. Did it cure it, heck no. But did accepting that it was going to be there and not dwelling on the fact that I am still depressed make me feel a bit less depressed? Yes, it did.
they have an attention span only as long as their wilingness to be understanding and show interest, which is not very long at all, since self presentation is primary in most peoples needs, not the absorption of the need of others to reach out for help. they will not allow that depression is ongoing in many cases, and mistakenly assume it can be turned off with a well turned phrase or upbeat notion. they haven't a clue what it is really like or what affects it has on people.
Because they have never had to deal with despression or they are afraid to admit it...they just turn a blind eye to it until something happens and then their stupid f*cken comment is...."theres notging that bad". Or "I wished they would have said something"....or "if i would have known i would have done something to help"...
They WERE saying something the best way they could!!!!
And you wouldnt have sone sh*t except tell them to suck it up and move on!!
Yeah...thats what we/the person whi is depressed really wants to hear trust me!!
That kind of stuff p*sses me off
It's convienent for everybody. For the doctors, for the suffererers, for family and friends. I don't think it always true is though.
Lack of understanding in some people because theres still a stigma around depression and mental illness- for the longest time my own family didnt get me, but they eventually came around. There will be times where the urge to kill yourself will be stronger, but its not permanent. I suggest in the meantime you keep your mind occupied with positive thinking, its not easy, trust me but its a welcome distraction.
Because for some people who have situational or topical depression, it is temporary. For those that suffer from long term depression it may not be temporary. Even on medication, people forget that a person is not cured, just medicated. The condition is being managed through medication.
There's different kinds of depression. Some of it is temporary. Some is not.
wow - - dunno what to say 'cept after my brothe died in my arms, buried my father 3 months later THEN broke my hip a good friend said to me " i'm GLAD to hear your a little depressed - it shows a connection to REALITY" ........ so maybe you should skip the doctors, the meds and the excuses and GET A GRIP........just sayin' ........most often it's a choice to be happy or not........
you don't have a point - - you just want attention - - pay your doctors and the med companies for it - - but don't come begging for it around me unless you want to do something about it yourself - - it's pathetic at best .....and i DO say this kindly - - really i do with big hugs....
Well Depression is temporary when it comes to manics
other than that my only suggestion is get a dog
I think it's because they don't understand it.
