its a shame you allow your depression to detach you from empathy and sympathy




I've noticed that quite a few people i know have suddenly turned into refugee hating, intolerant right wingers then have announced how depressed or suicidal they've been. It's hard to have sympathy with people who take out their issues on other people.

I haven't felt suicidal for over 15 years. I dealt with the root causes of my depression in group therapy about 4 years ago.
I don't hate legitimate refugees. All of my grandparents left Europe because of the USSR. Sympathy is quite worthless as people tend to use it as a prop to show how virtuous and caring they are. I prefer empathy for people whose situations I can relate to. I couldn't imagine risking my son's future to satiate an addiction. Therefore, zero empathy. I believe in socialist ideals backed up by conservative values and the rule of law. If that's right-wing then so be it. I don't see a connection between transference of personal issues and opposing Marxist moral relativism.
 
How's your liver, Nick?

My dad was a gambling addict who couldn't give a flying fuck about his three kids growing up, luckily our mum did her best to raise us the best she could. Unfortunately we've all ended up with either addictive, depressive or dare I say it suicidal personalities. I've felt nothing but anger towards my dad and chose to have no contact with him from the age of sixteen, I wouldn't even bat an eyelid if he snuffed it. One of my brothers has nothing to do with his child and the other brother only see's his on weekends and although he loves him to bits, depression is clearly getting in the way of raising him to the best of his abilities. Circumstance has drilled into me that once you bring a child onto this planet you have a responsibility to do right by them regardless of your own issues, for this reason I point blank refuse to have children at this time as I can barely look after myself let alone another human being.

That's a pretty sensible (and brave) stance to have. It seems that people often lunge straight in to parenthood without proper consideration of their own life constraints/mental state/relationship troubles. I'm lucky that I've not had to deal with any mental health challenges as yet, but I can tell you that parenthood can drive even those most stable and comfortable parents to the very edge at times. Throw in some pre existing personal issues and I can see how it could quickly spiral out of control.

I'm genuinely touched by how supportive 99% of members on here are. 10 years ago I would never had expressed any true emotion on this forum apart from cynicism and sarcasm.
 
I've suffered from anxiety for years and have been very lucky to have a mum who I can turn to at any time if I need any help. Not everyone is so fortunate.

I'm in a similar place mate. If it wasn't for my mum I would certainly be dead.

Yeah tomorrow is a new day Geordie. Maybe try and go on a long walk tomorrow, without fail I always feel somewhat better afterwards. I think the combination of being out in nature, getting a load of fresh air and getting some light exercise is great for calming the mind.

Guy I know at work was talking about being on medication and working loads of hours to keep busy. He was treated for depression and diagnosed with a personality disorder.

He was referred to and went through councilling. However, at home he was alone and drinking quite heavily.

Without all the details as its only just happened, through no fault of his own he had an accident at work and was suspended few weeks ago. Found out earlier today he killed himself.

I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true, he was a genuinely good guy. If those crutches you're hanging on to disappear, you need a back up plan or an alternative way to deal with your problems.

Got to say I've reflected on it and currently in the process of making a few changes myself.

Edit: Not aimed at anyone, just sayin

Gotta say much love to this place really. We don't really know each other (ok some of you do) but as others have mentioned its an ok place to reach out / vent / be a bit different from the usual stresses of life when you cannot talk about certain stuff. Big up.

Well, since then I found out he was not getting on with his ex and his son was refusing to go to his house or see him. That, plus the shit at work tipped him over the edge.
 
I truly believe if he had something to take his mind off things then he wouldn't have done what he did.
 
I had convos with him when he's said he couldn't stay in his flat because he kept thinking the same thing over and over. I think loneliness is a cunt and if you stay as you are nothing will change, so how will things get better?  Going to the pub and getting pissed everyday isn't the answer.
