Recently I've been sleeping a lot and eating very little. I slowly began to feel slower and less responsive as time went on. I've been reluctant to do things that I usually enjoy like video games or hanging with Friends. I haven't felt motivated to go to work and I've slept in by mistake on multiple occasions. On my days off I've been staying in bed until 8 at night only to eat something and go right back to sleep. This has happened over the course of 3 months and has gotten progressively worse. Just in the past 3 days I've started feeling completely empty inside and I even had a few thoughts of what death would be like. Just today I had very vivid thoughts of suicide but I have no intention of doing anything harmful. I lead a fairly mundane life with nothing particularly bad. I don't have a gf but that's a personal choice that doesn't effect me. I'm a bit worried and I don't want to talk to a doctor just yet. I've always seen people being to quick to jump on the depression bandwagon and letting that actually effect their lives. I'm not sure that I'm depressed and I'd like to say that I'm not. As far as other disorders go I've never been diagnosed with anything and I'd be fairly quick to say that I don't. I just don't know what's happening and I was wondering if any of you had some sort of insight for me.
It's hard to know your situation just by what you posted. In order to make you feel better you have to access the depression and find an antidote. The therapist can give you the light bulb, but you have to screw it in.
>don't want to talk to a doctor yet
Holy shit do you just love being miserable or something? You should have seen one after the first week.
> I don't have a gf but that's a personal choice that doesn't effect me.
>I'm not sure that I'm depressed and I'd like to say that I'm not.
You are so full of shit. Quit deluding yourself. And go see a doctor.
Depression isn't a disorder, only Tumblerinas and SJW Redditors believe that shit. Are you sad? Why are you sad? Did you lose a family member you were close to recently? That's depression. It's not some out of thin air disease. Don't go to the doctor, they'll just load you up with pills as they're paid to do. T b h, if you feel (keyword feel) depressed then do things that bring you joy. Maybe take a vacation from work.
OP is suddenly sleeping more and eating less, considering suicide while leading an average life
Don't worry, I eat 1 meal a day and sleep about 9-10 hours a night and I feel fine
Of course I'm also emotionally void and I consider suicide occasionally, never tried anything though and probably never will
I'm beginning to think this is a meme that normies use to make themselves look 'le dark, le brooding'. You can be depressed due to recent sad shit in your life, but depression is a damned meme.
And what? Have a doctor brush me off and give me pills that'll make me more attentive and feel "happier"? I'm not even sad. Literally nothing has happened to me to warrant a feeling of depression.
I've tried that but nothing seems to work. When I try to do things I enjoy I "enjoy" it for the time being but immediately when I'm done I just feel down again.
Maybe I'll end up like that or maybe not.
That's actually how I feel which is why I am hesitant to even bother with a doctor. Nothing has happened to me for me to feel depressed, I'm not sad, and I don't hate myself. I'm happy with my life right now, I'm just feeling empty.
>sleep 8 - 12hours
>eat 1 meal like mini corndogs and boneless wings/tendies
>snack on chips/fastfood and drink mostly lemonade/tea/sunndyD/water/fruit punch
>wank for an hour
>brush me teeth/take flintstone pills/take 1 advil/take 1 allergy pill/put on deo and freebreze in the morning
am more sluggish than depressed.
if i go somewhere, it takes a ton of energy out of me when i get back and i nap for about 2hours.
just played some LSD/DE and birthday is today.
I don't think that's it. For one I'm 20 and male and for seconds I don't feel fatigued, just empty.
Yes. It's not so much that I can't, I just don't feel like it. I find it hard to get up at all and eating feels like a chore. I'd rather sleep or drone through the work day.
Yea. I've been eating mostly enough after I get home on most days and while at work I'll eat a carrot or two. I'm not starving so I'm not too worried about that but I have thought about making a batch of some smoothie to drink at points during the day so I can at least function to some degree at work.
