    but seriously if your mood changes so often i would talk to your shrink about your meds cause it might just be that.
    play some games, take a walk outside, eat/drink some nice things. enjoy the small things of life.

    Curing depression for Duby

    Code named.

    Mission inpossibal.


    But On a serious note, you should find a vent, that isn't self harm. Pick up a hobby, anything to keep your mind from swimming, which generally leads to depression I would think.

    @łApocaRUFF:
    Feeling like shit is kinda wide spread. I think it's because people are not very resilient to emotional distress. Modern day culture is infected with things that can cause depression.
    Becoming HC clinically depressed is more rare, but yea, aside from that moments where it's great, life pretty much sucks.

    @duby:
    Find a place that does meetings and "self-help groups". Those self-help groups are not in all sense "self-help". They are partially named such to not shame people who do not want to accept help and also give them a space. However you can use them to let them help you outside of you "helping yourself".
    A way more formal way of saying this: Get a working support network. People to talk with, honestly and genuinely. Not being genuine and building a facade can add to your problem.
    (No matter what it is, if you can't find something like that easily in your area, try to find any kind of social interaction thing for grownups. Something religious, if it must be, even if you don't "sign up for it", they might be tolerant about that. Keep away from groups that might be "immature", not in the sense of age, but behavior. Baseline: find a group of nice people and hang out with them, no matter if you like what they do at all. Your depressed you won't "just love it", at least at the beginning.)
    Also: Do sports and exercise. Force yourself. It also teaches you to force yourself to do other things that are actually "good for you". This is the key to overcoming your limitation, because it's just in your head. If you feel you can't you could also try to phase it out and "dive through", just start doing it without allowing yourself to think about it at that moment (if you are not too uncomfortable with that).

    Stay frosty.

    I have to take meds for mine. Talking about it did nothing( usually just made it worse), "self help groups" did nothing, getting hobbies did nothing( was depressed doing hobbies), getting over it didn't help( got 4 suicide attempts), altruism does nothing( feel nothing bout it), exercise did nothing( was a scholarship offered level athlete), hung around people( made it worse). I don't want to take them, hate it, but honestly, it's the only think that has helped for me. Sometimes a person has to take meds. Sometimes it's the only think that can help. Maybe after a year, after your able to talk and get better, you can start weening off them and see how it goes.

    I took em for bout 4 months was doing very well, went off them and plummeted hardcore and had to go back on. Kinda just accepted I may be one of those people that has to take them or I'm just doomed, ****ed, and dead by my own hands eventually.

    I don't fully know your situation, but only you can know if you've tried everything. If you have, the next step may just be accepting you may be one of them people who has to take meds to get through the day. If not, try the stuff you haven't yet.
    Too much agreement kills a chat.

    All that medicine ever can do is say "This is what helps, usually".
    You can't predict the future and you never know what will happen.

    People get discouraged from keeping trying different things if one or two won't work for them.
    Especially if they are in a constantly discouraged, depressed state.

    Every of the things you said are normally good and for that reason, should be tested out.
    OP should; That's my opinion.

    Like when you said hanging around people makes it worse for you, is also revealing it obvious that social interaction can be a very important a factor in this.

    Even though "exposure" as psychological ailment is pretty much the mainstream idea of things, it can also not work, in which case, usually the opposite, limiting exposure works. That is something for everyone individually to try. When an impulse arises into the direction of giving it a try. One can see the glass as half full or empty, but that it should be tried doesn't change.

    Edit:
    Anyways, the first preferable option to treat depression should be therapy.
    All those options are either easy to deal with don't require a lot of effort and don't cost a lot. They are also not as promising concerning getting real tangible results. They offer a good chance. The majority of afflicted people at least feel "better" doing each one of those things.

    Stay frosty.

    When I was 15 I also had depression, it was serious as well. to describe it how I remember feeling, the moment I woke up I would feel fine, then about 10 seconds later a dark cloud would set over me and I would lose motivation to even get out of bed, I had no desire to do anything but just lay there and exist, rather than live. I couldn't sleep some nights, I would just lay there, my heart would race, It was terrible. I eventually started seeing a doctor for it, who prescribed me with some meds, I was taking the meds for about 2 months, they worked, but then one night I remember asking myself "Do i really want to take this stuff for the rest of my life?" So I threw them away, I started looking inside for what was causing my depression, I decided that it was my environment at the time, so I moved to stay with my relatives in a different state.

    Since then ive never had depression like that again, other than the occasional night where im wondering what im doing with my life, but thats normal for most people.

    My advice is to try and remain optimistic, try to figure out whats causing your depression, try not to let your mind swim, just always remain doing something, anything.

    I vent my feelings by typing it out as a journal and finding healthy activities that keep me focused like my part time job or volunteer work.

    Exercise is thought to be one of the best treatments for depression, no joke.

    As somebody who's lived with depression and refused any sort of medication, I have one bit of advice.

    Some people are depressed because they don't do anything. Some people don't do anything because they're depressed. In both cases, going out and doing things helps.
