PostSubject: Depression   Fri Sep 25, 2009 5:56 am

Just wonderin does anyone else here suffer from depression? i think its easier talking about this on the internet then in person with people.

I think we all know about tha gay traveller that killed himself a while back. kinda scared me a bt as its a lott of pressure to take. expected to get married or stay quite. i mean i could get married 2 and have kids but fk what a terrible life. sayin that though i know some who seem to of done that (well... not known but ya cant help but think they are)

So... does anyone ever hve it?
How did ya cope?
Do you like me not talk about it in person to people?
Do ya hate it when people say snap out of it?
What do ya think we could do to feel better?

hi yadneverguess,,
i cant believe no one else has left a comment or even tried to discuss this topic.
i myself suffer from depression and have so since was 15,,ten years btw lol..
its a totally NORMAL and COMMON ailment within the gay community.
my depression is more of a chemical imbalance in serotonin,,a hormone secreted to make you feel happy. so i go through bouts of sheer happiness and back down to pure sadness..

as a writer i have noticed some things, i write really really well when i am on a HIGH and happy day, but as soon as i sleep i wake up depressed..

i have absolutely no problem with admittng i have depression to anyone, because i know that the worst thng you can do is keep it to yourself..i definately recommend talking to someone if your depressed. remember the toughest man n the world cannot defeat depression on his own..

still cant believe no one took up this topic with you,,extremely important issue..

hope your well yadneverguess..
take care

peace

Thanks. The guys behind the site contactd me straight away and made sure i got in to talk to who i needed to. They seem to leave posts open for everyone making sure people get to answer Long journey but its good to have it started. much lighter heart and head now. guess some of the other members avoid it like i used to different when it happens to you tho. Your right tho we need to talk about this more. Why do you think you write better? im not where i want to be. gettin thehr tho

This is so true! how do you handle yours? it seems v common with our comunity, not a surprise with its oppression and sometimes obsession with feeling strong or at least acting it. not always a place to share whats going on inside
