Sorrow and Depression

Not everything in life is the happy sunshine and joy, a lot of it has negative aspects that haunt and torment us. Day in. Day out. Those days where you are bummed out, those days where you are annoyed, those days something does not go your way, those days you get bad news, those days you don't feel like getting out of bed, and those days where you wonder if the life you are living is going to change. Yelling and screaming in silence. Your cognitive faculties do not feel like functioning due to your emotional state which you assume can be rectified, but nothing ever works. A winter of discontent and anguish. All of which slowly erodes all happiness you once felt until there is only the dark abyss of the unknown humanity dubs in the English language as oblivion. We have philosophical topics in this forum including religion, death, guns, piracy, sexuality, teaching Japanese, surviving the apocalypse, and fears so I thought this would be one worth starting, mainly because this is a subject that is on my mind a lot of the time, especially recently.

What are your experiences with sorrow and depression that you are willing to share?

I think we had one similar topic a few years ago, but I don't know if people really want to talk about it. Personally, I can't, because to me, it's only a state of mind that comes and goes pretty quickly...

To me depression is one of the most destructive states a person can be in.

There are miracles and wonders everywhere around you. Look for them. They may help to lift you back on your feet. I found this AMV, and I think its wonderful, and encouraging.

If only I could share this enthusiasm. I see miracles and wonders every now and then, none of it is strong enough to relief the mental pain I have been feeling since 2010. For every one good thing spawned from mankind I can easily name many another failures and atrocities that display the ugly side of human nature. Speaking from experience, some wounds you can't heal from until the ailment's origin is excised, like a plank stabbing you in the brain kind of like that old CSI episode. You eventually forget what common sense is since you feel no positive emotion for so long. Real depression is not being lifted back on your feet by some news story, it is thinking many hours if not nights of questioning not your own self but rather how you hope the end will come and how soon. Just this past week I lost almost half a night of sleep over just being miserable and whenever I am not sad I am usually angry.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, all I saw in that was an editing mess feature a bunch of anime do not know of.

I'm a celiac who is also allergic to a shit ton of other foods. My allergist said I have some advanced form of the disease. I have pains every day because of this and half of my shits make me nearly pass out. For a while I even drank for a long time to deal with it and all that did was fuck up my stomach lining at an early age. I have to be 5x as careful with what I put in my body and can't even go inside a bunch of places because the aroma of gluten has the effect of making me vomit if I just ate. I fucking hate my life and every day is a different hell. I abuse drugs to cope now, and have quit a ton of 'em (nos, lean, spice, coffee, and good ol' lucy) but I still keep going for new and better shit to forget yesterday or that tomorrow is coming in a few hours. I stay around my friends all the time because I can't stand being alone because of where my mind goes. I ain't trying to be over convincing about my personal hell but if a page from my book can help you then I'll be more than happy to. This is just a small part of my life, let me know if you wanna hear more from some one that is worse off than most. Some times that's all people need to hear to get their lives on track. I'm hear for all my Otaku homies.
