Call your local 911. You are a danger to yourself.

You need to go to a doctor and be put on anti-depressants. I know making yourself get out of your house and go to the doctor is monumental but you must make that first step or you will never get better.

I'm not in any danger, I'm depressed. My religion forbids me from taking any kind of medication and plus I don't have health insurance. I think it's the holidays, I lost my job, friends and family. I feel lonely and don't kno how to get back into the world.

God wants you to feel better. God helped doctors create meds to HELP you. Any "religion" that says you can't take meds is a false religion.
You DO need help. Do as I suggested. You want to get better.

Medication doesn't always solve the problem. I want to get better but not with medicines that make you reliant on them for the rest of your life. It's a sad world we life that if we believe we are said that medicating oneself is the only answer.

Fairview Health Clinic has a sliding scale based on income. Most pay 15.00 a visit. I have battled depression for over 10 years and the first step is seeking help which you have already done by asking here. Now take the next step. Trust me, you can feel better.

Sometimes the chemistry in your brain doesn't work right. Serotonin in your brain makes you happy and if its not working right you will be sad all the time and nothing will help that but medication to fix the problem.

I make myself get out. Depressed or not , you can get depressed by not getting out. My problem i hate getting out if it is a chore. i want to go some where do what i want to do , and never fails , gotta go the hardware store grocery , and running errands tire me out groceries mo money. I hate it. gas is so high , we cant get out.We have to save our gas for the grocery ,pay the bills, work , so there is no gas to waste. people are bored stuck. so here we are ...No life threatening issue ... just broke,bored playing games on the internet, which i hate games ...soooo we all are a little out of sorts.

if i am not mistaken you get serotonin in your sleep , you can buy that at the dollar store.if you dont get the right amount of sleep you serotonin level goes down , i think this is right , I'LL go find you a link. life is a chore , we all have work to do of some kind, money is tight, so the worry begins , less sleep. so why take a pill? will it makes it better or make it go away .. no....... the problems are still there .. just have to live with them ... money problems are real ... no pill is going to fix that ... work work work ... from one hand to another ... just the way it is right now ... and then the car heater goes out lol .. it goes on and on and on ....

It's just so darn hard to do anything when you don't have the money and any friends. I don't know about you folks but when your not from around here it's very hard to make friends and its like high school, everybody has their cliques here and are very judgemental, especially to those who don't have much. I'm just down, I'm hoping there is something to do in this town that might lift my spirits. You don't need meds to find happiness. I really just can't find the motivation or strength to step outside of my house and go do something.

The medical companies along with the pharmaceutical companies are making billions , if you go to a doctor and tell them you are stressed , why sure they are going to put you on some kind of bull crap drug, I am not a Stepford wife.I have a brain , and I do use it. LOOK AT THE DRUGS BEING RECALLED ?? if you want to be used as a lab rat the doctors are all for it, the pharmaceutical companies are jumping up and down ,, another lab rat , trial and error, they pass out the drugs and do blind studies , if more than a hundred / ball park figure)get sick or seizures ,even death .... they say oops and then the fda recalls it .. you see a lot of people are sheep , they put way to much trust in doctors, instead of doing their own thinking.. look at all the hip replacement ,metal joints have been recalled ... it is a fact of life that our body is going to wear out , sad to say but its part of aging.. its normal to grow old ,its normal to have pain from years of hard work and the toll its takin on our bodies , i wont go to the doctor ..... its not about the patient anymore ,its all about money , you can go to the doctor , they come in the room with a book ,lmao!! that right there should make one think ,,, huh lol but no they take anything the doctor gives them .... when all in all it just life ... we have to deal with it ... doctors are not god .... by the by ...

I am sure you can find friends, although alot of them may be fake , I have had to find that out the hard way. Get out of the house though , it does make it harder if you stay cramed up . See the beauty in the world outside. It really is awesome although some of the folks may not be.. Happy New year may it be a blessed one for you..

No need to call 911 that's stupid! Omg. Anon..... I have been there. Meds do help and you don't have to be life dependant on them. If you had cancer would yu take meds to help you or give up and let it kill you? No! Depression can kill you. You have some type of religion..... if you believe strongly enough to not take meds then go to church. Not being smart just saying there are people there that if they are good Christians no matter the religion then they will talk with you and you can make new friends. If you don't go to church to feed your soul then take meds cause your not that serious about your religion. Not doubting your faith but I am a Christian and a preachers daughter and I firmly believe that no matter your religion you need church to fees your soul. Make sense? I am sure someone will twist my words starting with Troll. But you asked for help and others have turned your request into a topic about themselves. They claim to be Christian (not doubting their faith) but they should set aside their "life of topix" to help one in need. I will pray for you anon.

Why do you think you have to be such a smart azz to everyone here? Are you really that bitter? Mby you should talk to therapist.. Its really sad that you look to thrive on others in pain or having trouble.. Try giving up lifting advice every now and then.. Being ugly to others doesn't always help you bitterness being helpful or nice can work wonders for your soul! May god be with ur painful soul!
yup

That doesn't matter at all. It's a chemical imbalance of serotonin.
