    I donít consider myself a big pussy too often and when I get into a ďfunkĒ it literally can and will put me on my ass for weeks at a time. Sometimes Months if left untreated. Doesnít matter what I have to do in life, how itís gonna effect my loved ones, etc. etc. Thereís no willing it to go away. Nobody will ever beat depression. The trick is to limit those ďfunksĒ. The bottom line is that mental health is real and thereís no cure all for it. Best your gonna do is find a way to deal with it. Just my humble opinion though.
    I feel yah dude but Iíve seen too many people in a funk relegating themselves into a dark place by relinquishing control over their own thoughts. My grandpa and my uncle were truly afflicted individuals but the rest of the family is just a bunch of fuckin babies.

    I get a little aggressive over it because they tried to paint me with that brush when I was a youngster. My dad was hard nosed as fuck and my mom was always trying to turn me into a little pussy. It was very confusing as a kid. At the end of the day I realized that I do not have my grandpas manic depressive issues and I moved on with my life. The military really helped put things into perspective for me.

    People will have a bad run or stop taking care of themselves and instead of trying pull themselves up they just bawl around and take meds when all they need to do is get their shit together. Thatís not to take away from people that have legitimate issues but I feel like the vast majority of people who claim depression are just pussies whoíve never really suffered.

    Little rich kids who are upset because the whole world doesnít lie at their feet like their parents told them it would. The antifa/tranny crew if you know what I mean...

    All Iím trying to say is that people conflate sadness with depression these days and a lot of people surrender control over their emotions. Docs capitalize because they want to sell pills and bill hours to insurance plans.

    I know first hand that clinical depression is a real thing but I feel like itís just over-diagnosed these days.

    All good bro. I donít disagree with anything youíve said really. I just thought we were going down two different roads and both points had been made.

    I have dealt with manic depression and social anxiety for years ... have all the prescriptions prescribed including the heavy benzos and psychotropics and while they do work, they'll turn you into an emotionless zombie with little cognitive function. Honestly, white Kratom has been one of the best, but there is a fine line between too much with the physical dependencies and getting no sides. Other nootropics / supps (L-Theanine + Caffeine), microdosing Delta-8 THC, and I've found Modafinil to work really well. I'm now interested in SAM-E, thanks for sharing this!

    Its an off-label use of moda for depression, but I can attest that it actually works. I actually just started this not too long ago and can say it makes me very talkative and gives energy (where depression sucks away our energy).

    It takes time and a good Doc to find the right drug or drugs that work for each individual. Itís trial and error. Iím not proud of it but after my last bout with depression ,which put me in the Loony Bin, Iím now on a concoction of 8 different drugs. Itís been about a month and Iím just now starting to settle back in to a happier place mentally. Fighting depression is a process. Its a disease just like cancer or any other. If you have it bad enough it will consume you unless your willing to put in the time and effort to fight it. Hell I want to smile and laugh just like everyone else. Its just not always in the cards. Good luck to everyone on this thread that say they have it. Itís a bitch but there can be a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I get seasonal depression, the months of April and Sept I get the worst of it.. I been off and on meds most my adult life, some cases I took heavy amounts and others just enough to help improve the quality of life without over medicating..
    It sucks, but the gym has always been the number one outlet for me, if I start to miss sessions due to depression it makes it worst, I just press even harder and each time I feel like a NEW man when I walk out, refreshed.. In the end, it passes and life goes on.

    If I didn't have a daughter to raise, I would have packed it in a long time ago. I even researched the best ways to do it and picked my favorite. All my friends are dead and I'm not interested in finding new ones. Don't have any family left. Wife and I don't talk anymore. Can't imagine I'll be around long after my daughter's grown, gone, and on her own. Looking forward to it actually.
    Wow.....sounds bad bro. I struggle at times too, have zoloft that I take intermittently at times; hate the way it makes me feel, like a zombie with no emotion but sometimes that's the lesser of the two evils. I typically will go on 25-50mg for a few days then go off and see how I feel.

    When my Dad passed I was never the same. They say ďtimeĒ helps. But time doesnít make the pain go away, just helps you manage the pain better.

    Donít rely on any drug to make your depression go away. Because when you stop the drug the depression will come back.

    Need to learn to push forward, stay as positive as you can, and kill it in the gym.

    Instead of thinking in my head ďwhy did he have to goĒ, I think ďhes with me, watching over me, and Iíll make him proudĒ
