Someone said :
My daughter had a baby 7 years ago,I was very happy for her and wanted to visit her in hospital to congratulate them,
I was told not to call I was very hurt by this
But I waited for them to call over to me,which they never did,
So I just waited for them to contact me,
Am still waiting,they got married soon after and never once contacted me,
I was a good father and only stayed in that marriage for them,
Only came out years later. So that wasn’t the issue,
Have been suffering from depression for such a long time only got better when I finally decided to do something about it talk to someone seek help,begin to love yourself descover who u really are,
Live in the moment,life’s a bitch but a sexy bitch and exciting

I'm sorry that happened Msrubyrose. Does your daughter not talk to you because you came out?

I live alone, and I find myself crying a lot more about silly things I see on tv etc. I’ve stated on anti depressants this week. I just find it hard to put myself out there to meet other gay guys. I have been at 2 gaire meet ups, and one was in the panti bar. It felt good. But then I went home again and I go backwards. I find littythings set me thinking, what’s the point, and what am I doing wrong. It just gets really bad and I end up sitting on the floor crying. Sorry if this sounds bad, but I work 12 hour shifts and am trying to clear my mortgage in the next 2 years. So it’s home then back to work atm . But then I think why am I trying to clear my mortgage, is it for my benefit or someone else’s when I’m gone??

Someone said :

I think he is being ironic, suggesting that criticizing pills (because you suggested their prescription to be corrupted by money) is not "politically" correct.

He then suggested what he perceives as being the "politically" corrected imperative for medication, where peopke supposedly are wearing their diagnosis and prescriptiobs as a badge of honor.

He is not accusing you of boasting about your pills : he is trying to be ironic and says "according to the politically correct trend, you should not suggest anything negative, instead they want you to seek attention through boasting about your pills")

He is basically saying tbat you do not boast enough about how pills are great (compared with his fantasy of political correctness). Not even "you" specifically to be fair: he only uses you post to make a point...

They are not great, I hate them and wish I wasn't taking any.

Don't worry about him, he probably did not realize what your experience really is like (neither did I), he was simply making an anti-prescription-lobby point, similar to your own point in a way.

I know nothing about having to take pills as a best-worst option.

Having had a violent, lonely, confusing & misguided childhood myself i ended up with a deep clinical depression for most of my adult life, from which i am only now recovering. I tried the chemical route about ten years ago but found after two years they were doing absolutely nothing for me so decided to quit. That's not to say that chemicals don't work. Two people on my street grew up with schizophrenia, both of whose condition is now reasonably well managed with drugs and i imagine in the case of Bi-polar disorder chemicals can be very helpful.
What finally broke it for me was the sheer power of positive thinking & refusal to let the negative thoughts creep in. As soon as i feel a negative thought pattern creeping in now i choose to instantly reject it. Eckharte tolle hugely changed my life. I really would recommend watching his teachings.. Peace, love & mental happiness.. Oliver xxx

What makes me not go into too much depression is trying to keep busy. And also I go on walks and also find keeping hens and ducks helps as when I find focus on something else helps. However I am feeling slightly depressed by the way my love life has been. And well not finding any women who understand my disability. I think, I should set up a meet for people who need someone to chat to over a cup of tea or coffee. I find sometimes chatting to someone who has the same thing helps as I know am not alone.

Society seems determined to imprint on us the idea that to be happy you need to love & be loved by somebody else. This is not true. Love & understand yourself first & foremost.

We seem to be willing to forgive other people for their transgressions against us but, really struggle to forgive ourselves for our own failings.

I still think that people are quick too judge someone without taking the time to know them and just dismiss them.

They make a difference, have to be taken and wish I didn't have too.

We are all guilty of judging.

I think if you need pills and helping you, but if a doctor/GP is only giving you pills to line their pockets and not help you then I feel this is so wrong and not really understanding or helping people who need help and this is shocking for a medical person to do this.
