    I just keep busy mate, if I sit too long and think, makes it worse - too much thinking. Just try and keep myself occupied.

    what works for me is to force yourself to get out and about, go for a beer with some mates, maybe train, but just dont get lethargic and let things bog you down. I know its easier said than done, and what works for some doesnt for others, but as the previous post says, try not to dwell on whatever is getting you down.

    Ain't the easiest thing in the world mate I'm very prone to bouts of it.

    It's hard to be humble when I'm so great...

    Well mate back when I was depressed the things which helped me were therapy (mild help), medication (mild help) and reading and learning absolutely everything about my condition (great help)

    So those are the things I recommend to other people

    I go through bouts of it, and TBH I get through but I arent particularly sure how..U just have to I guess. I try and force myself to do things like socialise etc even thop I do not particulally want to, and keep myself busy with things even if they feel completely joyless, and eventually it seems to ease up a bit, altho never completely TBH

    Mate it depends on what is getting to you. Are you in PCT ? as I know you do some major cycles so mary poppins would be suffering from depression if she had stopped the amount of gear you had (no offence intended mate)

    I suffered with depression early part of this year, I literally had no get up and go, couldn't get out of bed off the sofa etc. Was the lowest I have ever been in my life

    Do you know why you are depressed ?

    Throwing myself into a social situation has helped loads lately

    voluntary work has worked in the past

    Hard exercise, such as a hard cardio session (I can get away with hill sprints because Im not very heavy!)

    I suffered depression mate, towards the end of my uni, degree when everyhting seemed to be going wrong for me (degree, no job) everything just got me down in the end. I was prescribed some antidepressents but didn't want to rely on them.

    Like others I tried to pull myself out of, I socialised quite a bit, and i found it helped to talk it through with my partner, not any shrink or nayone, just someone I could try and relay how I felt too. I immersed my self into things especially training and as others have said, tried to keep busy and my mind focused on something.

    It was hard though, i had good days and bad days, and got quite emotional alot. It was like being stuck down an empty well and being able to see the light at the to but not able to get up to it.

    Try to keep busy and keep your mind from long periods when you will analyse things and turn thing over, and it may help to talk to someone, a problem shared and all!

    Good luck bigman

    I tried a number of things, including prescribed drugs, therapy etc. I am currently taking St Johns Wort and feeling better than ever. Seriously good stuff, mate. You can;t take it if you are on and prescribed drugs, but if you are not on any AntiDepressants then give em a go. Take a week or two to get into your system, but you will then feel the difference...... amazing.

    BTW, over in Europe, St Johns Wort are actually prescribed by the GP's and are more poular than any Prozak or other crap like that.

    I went through something similar but wouldnt say I was depressed (not in the clinical sense anyway.)

    My degree ended I moved away to another area which is much better so I would say solving the things that are causing you to be depressesed (easier said than done of course) would be a start.

    Keep the faith and it will get better. I wouldnt have changed what happened your struggles develop your strengths and Im a better man for it.

    Good luck and you can always take the mick out of Predator for a bit I bet that cheers you up.

    my gf is going through this at the moment, she's actually in the Priory for clinical depression.

    She's 22 and to be honest neither her nor I saw it at all.
    Obviously over the last week or so I've learnt a hell of a lot about depression, its so different to what i always thought it was.

    first off, its a physical illness, not a phsycological one! it's to do with hormone inbalance etc. I dont really remember the science to be honest.

    The only way to properly treat it is drugs to rebalance the hormones, and then councelling to get you through it.

    My girl has been in there 1 week now and it is ****ING tough, for her and me.
    She's doped up and going through hell, and to be honest im finding it really hard to give her all the support she needs. I feel selfish that I'm depressed about her being in there and i try really hard to be 'perky' but it just doesnt happen.

    time is the healer, but only with professional help.

    good luck with it all

    No way bro!!!!!!!! Thats bad news!

    No matter how bad the shi* gets thers allways a way round it bro and if not you have to smash thru it.

    Stupid moves aint the way to go bro, you know that allready..

    Remember these 3 words, told to me by a very wise man when i was down.

    It Will Pass

    No matter what the problems are or how big, it will pass by and that event/time will go by.

    Changed my life when i heared those 3 words.

    Just let it pass bro and start over again

    Regards, Rich

    PS. No more crazy shi* now bro, stay frosty.

    cheers rich, one of the good guys that i listen to always, words taken on board, just wanna let people know that bottling stuff no matter how small aint the way to go,

    mt and boards alike are here to help in all ways, after all we are all mates here and although many of us have never met , we probably talk more to each other than we do to people we see from day to day in what i call the real world,

    chins up i hope it stays that way from now on,
