Sup ya'll

 

Gol~ (Or whatever the hell he calls himself now) was spot on when he said there are a lot of unhappy Nerd Forumers out there.

 

 

Ladies and Gents I present to you..... 

 

THE DEPRESSION THREAD!!!!!!

 

USREV0500081_640x480_01.jpg

 

 

This thread is for all those people who are feeling a bit down, feel free to post what's on your mind and tell us what's bothering you. 

 

Whether it's confidence issues, relationship problems, loneliness, physical and psychological abuse, we've all been there and are willing to share our experiences to help you get through these tough times.

 

I for one don't judge and won't ridicule you, and I'm pretty damn sure that the community will only give helpful, constructive and encouraging advice. (Haters will be met with a boot 2 the face) ;)

 

I know it's winter time for most of you, and I'm only all too familiar with the winter blues.

 

But whenever I'm feeling sad I always bust out MCR's Black Parade. I don't know how it works but it makes me feel happier for some reason. No guarantees that it will make YOU feel any better, but hey, it's good music.

 

So I leave you people with this epic song.....

How very true. It's always good to have a little niche where you can open up and drain off the blackness that seems to envelop us from time to time.
I'm ok now, but I was feeling quite down around the holidays. My sister is still ignoring my existence in favor of her new beau and the only thing I heard from her was the requisite happy holidays texts.
I saw them in the office this last weekend, but as per her request I exited stage right and kept on going. This was the first time I had ever seen him and to be honest, he gave me the creeps.
She told me a few details about him and the way she behaved since getting with him has me quite worried for her.
And my brother has been sick, so I cannot go down and talk to him....

Hey thanks for sharing your story.

 

Most of the time people just need someone to talk to.

 

I think this thread will serve people well because it can be quite daunting opening up, especially to those you know....

 

The benefits are that you can post here anonymously without any repercussions because half the members use aliases 2 conceal their true identities anyway. 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As for your sister, I'm sorry about that.

 

Sometimes nothing can be done (immediately anyway) People just have to endure and learn on their own, it may seem pretty cold and heartless (I call it tough love) and it may take a long time, but sometimes, it's the only way they learn.... Just ask my brother and his ex-girlfriend lol Took him 3 years to learn that she was a total conniving bitch. Couldn't talk sense in2 him, she ended up cheating on him until he finally opened his eyes and realized. lol

 

You just have to let them grow (mature) up a little

 

But I'm no Doctor Phil and there are many ways this issue can be dealt with.

 

Anyway I'm babbling.

Yep. It always helps to let it out. Keeping shit inside will eventually turn into physical problems----ulcers etc.

Besides, exactly what are the probabilities that any of us are going to "bump into" another of us on the street?

A depression thread?! Why didn't I think of that?! You had an idea I could have had! I'm depressed now...

 

Anyways! I guess letting them find out on their own might work. I remember when I was a small child, I wanted a toy ("Moon Shoes" I think they were called).  No matter how much my mother told me how useless and cheap they were, I wouldn't believe her slanderous lies slamming the great Moon Shoes! Well, she finally got them and I realized how all marketing is evil and that everyone is a filthy horrible liar only interested in money, prostitutes, cocaine and booze. Except for nerds, we're too socially awkward to lie.

Yes to be honest I'm deeply depressed at the moment, but I try to keep it all inside cause I don't want people to think I'm a Drama Queen or trying to seek for attention which I don't do at all. At the moment I'm trying to heal from being abused from my ex boyfriend.... I was with him for three and a half years and many times I tried to leave me but he threatened me many times.... & told me many times I was worthless, no good, ugly, crazy & that nobody could possibly want anything to do with me.... After awhile of hearing these things: I started to believe them cause in the beginning I had low self esteem. Right now I'm seeing a therapist in hoping to heal from all the inned scars that he left on me. :(

I just hope you don't leave us when you're feeling better. You're starting some of my favorite threads & pulling me out of my posting shell.

That's pretty intense. Good thing you left his ass. I despise dudes who hit chicks. All 2 familiar with that type of violence.

 

Yeah don't worry, you'll be all good in the long run. Someday you'll find eternal happiness and the dark past will be the past and long forgotten.

 

It may be the "shitlife" atm for ya, but it'll pass in good time :) Just gotta wait for the storm 2 pass. (Both metaphorical and literally hehehe) ;)

I know exactly how you feel, I've been through similar situations.

But the sad fact is when they do this stuff to you, all it really is them projecting their problems and insecurities on to you.

In all probability, everything he said to you was actually how he felt about himself and he was saying them because he felt like he couldn't get anyone as good as you and didn't want you to leave because of that.

Not that I'm saying what he did was right, it's not... But it does make one think a little.


Because I can...

Sometimes I'm afraid for my little sister. Her boyfriend is a stupid idiot who with 35 still feels like he's 25. He will even come on to me when my sister is not around. But she is so in love she won't hear anything bad about him. He is just exploiting her immaturity and willingness to do as he pleases.. If something better comes along he would leave her in an instant. I told her a milion times to tell him to go f**k himself but who is listening to me.

 

On top of that I am terrified of failing univerity. I mean I don't even need that degree. I have a bachelors degree and I could get a good job with that. But I want that masters degree. I just make myself crazy.

Wow you have a lot on your plate.

 

Your sisters boyfriend phase will probably pass. she'll get bored of his childish antics and probably gap it for another more 'mature' dude. Or she'll catch him being unfaithful.

 

But anywho you should probably just concentrate on YOURSELF in the mean time. Get your school work done because the fees are outrageously high. 

 

And if you're thinking about Masters, only do it if you really want to and if you think you can dedicate yourself to it.

 

I'm not going to put 100% effort into something I'm not really passionate about.

I'm pretty sure most of you know I'm going to start medication for depression and anxiety, but honestly I don't know if I triggered my depression or someone else did. Depression, anxiety, and bipolar stuff runs all through my family. Two members (male) of my family back home in Germany hung themselves and 2 other members (female) stuck there head in the oven and breathed in toxic gases. So now I just want help to figure out what caused me to be depressed. It wasn't those 4 deaths because I was to little to remember that. I mean I'm shy yes. But I can talk to people well. I mostly fake it because you can't act like hanging yourself around others or else they will be freaked out by me. So I basically do well socializing, I don't stutter, hold long quiet moments, and I just am fine with talking to people I just don't like too, anymore. So I don't think I'm insecure. I'm happy with every part of my body. Then you get into this whole teenage drama that will turn into nothing, but this one fucked me up pretty bad... Instead of telling it I'm just going to get the point across. This girl acted like she liked me for around 6 months. So we became good friends. Then I told her how I felt, which I did like her back, and then she just said "oh.. no... sorry." Then she told me a month later that it was because she felt bad for me. I haven't talked to her since then. The whole leading me on kind of thing may have triggered it because that was the first thing that made me sad and I never got out of it. You don't have to tell me twice that, that reasoning is stupid it's high school, your young. I already know. Luckily, and somewhat happily. I am now alone. I like it. But I don't really talk to any of my friends anymore, without putting on one of my masks so I seem similar to them. So right now the only people I talk to are you guys.

On topic- I've been having a fuckton of trouble in this area lately. I've been hit by a rapid succession of a few minor things and one massively major crisis in the span of a week.

 

In addition, I'm going back into having trouble being transgender. Literally 99% of the time, I'm fine and brush it off. And then there are times where I stop and think about what I'm literally missing and I want to set shit on fire, slice my own throat, and/or curl in a ball and cry for hours. Ever want to cut a guy's dick off and steal it?

 

Fuck, I know that was dark, but god-fucking-dammit. It sucks.
