Just like Rondillo said, and I couldn't even word it better... lol: "Laugh out loud spontaneously, like a maniac!" as in guffaws, belly laughs, rofl, and the likes... lol... I always do that and my mom even scolded me for such laughs but I love doing it coz it releases stress, it somewhat boosts your energy and your happy hormones!
But don't spam the board as Rondillo suggested, even for fun!!! Don't you dare or I'll be haunting your spam with major deletions!!! lol... yeah, talking about ones problems, even the mundane nonsensical stuff, always helps lessen depression... talking opens ones heart, mind and soul and it will relieve yourself of the burdens of the world... my values ed. prof said something about this lines: "take serious things lightly and light things seriously!" and I say "take everything lightly and always have fun for life is short and make the most of it!"
I would like to share this article from Reader's Digest Asia about the netizens of Taiwan helping a girl so depressed that she took pills and burned charcoal inside her hotel room. It's entitled Red Alert
... so, for the depressed people out there, esp. Krazoom, SMILE!!! and *virtual hugZ* and when you're in my area, I'll be giving you a real, tight hug!

i am depressed. i'm the kind of people that kinda put things inside me a lot. and i think a lot.this year had been hard for me. my sis are not home. she's the only one who understood me. she and i are like rebels, i guess. and i felt sa sick. every morning, when i wake i felt weak. i feel more refereshed when i did'nt sleep at all. i do not know who to go to. even if i go to any person, i could not tell them what i feel. yet,somehow i can understand people. that's why i don't have the heart to blame them.. and i blame myself. i felt so low a lot. i realized i've never been happy with my life. mom favour one sister and one brother and dad favour another sister and a brother. i can see it in their face. their feelings. that's how i know. i can tell the difference. i always felt like the black sheep in my family. i guess i am. people aid they are being patient with me, but i've been patient with them my whole life. i listened to them. when momhad problems with my sis and bro, she would cry to me in the car. when my sister had problems with mom, she would tell me. yet, when i try to tell them, they think it's petty.they think i'm petty. i know there's a lot of people who got things worse than me.. i guess they can handle it fine. i can't. my only escape is the computer, and my friends<since my sis is not around> and its getting harder cause it's vacation and my mom wouldn't let me go out much. now, i'm just dependent on the computer. i've hated myself so much. why must i just CAN understand them? and i felt, no matter what i do, nothing will change. the places will not change. i am here. and they are there.
i could never tell this to anyone other than to the computer.and i have a fight with my brother tonight. he just don't understand. he hated me.

im a funny and jolly person, though sometimes i feel depressed but not to the extinct of doing suicide instead i am inculcating my mind that LIfe is a gift that we should treasure whenever we have problems it's an opportunity for us to grow and to be a better person.
I'm a happy person also, and don't get easily depressed maybe they just don't know me that well, and to the point of attempting suicide. I really love my life,and you should too, treasure it and make the most of it. If your depressed find something to do
or someone to talk that would ease that depression, but I suggest you should first go to your loved ones or friends and talk to them your depression. I'm sure they can help you.

I have never been in a situation which made me thinking about committing suicide.I will say you find out the reasons who are causing depression .Try to get rid of those reasons ,I am sure things will be fine soon.If you are so bold to cut your throat yourself .You should be bold enough to cut the reasons who are causing depression.
I am in my mid 40s and want to give a take on depression. Depression is not nessesarily something that can be cured by " what makes you happy". That action may simply mask the real problem. The common cause of depression is the lack of saratonin in between the synampses in the brain. Those chemical receptors are responsible for sending stimuli from bodily sensors to the brain.
Other factors also contribute to depression. Genetics is one factor. From the time I was a little boy in the 70s to today my belief was that I had depression from one of my parents sides. It is something I have to live with and most importantly acknolage it and treat it.
I took a dosage of medication to treat my depression. first pill was a sence of ephoria. It felt like I was a kid again with fully of happyess. Since that time it has worn off.
Exercise is important as well as diet. Hanging around people who love you is important.
Yes, I've felt like that before. And you shouldn't commit suicide. You could either be bored or feel unappreciated. You won't feel that way anymore if you go on a day out with friends or learn something difficult like photoshop or another language. Or even something as simple as a marathon of watching drama or cartoons. Don't just sit there moping. Do something about it. Answers don't just simply come to you, you have to go out and find them yourself.

I felt chemical depression before. Sometimes I would notice that I may have had a sudden chemical imbalance because I would cry for no reason...I mean burst out crying for absolutely NO REASON.
I have also felt emotional depression as well, and its the worst feeling in the world...it was even worse when I didn't have any friends, family or shrinks to talk to about it. But I found that if I kept myself busy and do something entertaining or productive, this yucky feeling would go away. I also found that by confronting what caused my depression helped make it disappear. The emotional depression also triggered that chemical depression, which also caused excruciating pain, loss of hearing, suffocation and choking. I tried to gulp down pills before that which did not help because it felt like fire in the chest.
I suggest going to a doctor even for a checkup just to let someone know, even if its not someone as close as a friend or family member.

I have felt depressed most of my life.Suicidal just recently. I'm pretty young so when I was younger I thought that everyone must feel like me. I've been trying to get rid of all my negative feelings. I thought I was doing better last year but my friend recently told me that last year, it always looked like I was on the verge of crying. I always feel like a burden to everyone, like people just can't wait to get away from me. I feel like I can't do anything right especialy in comparison to my sister.
When ever I thought of suicide, I thought how it would affect everyone that knew me in a negative way. I didn't want to hurt anyone so I decided on never hurting myself. A great thing to do is to talk to someone profeshional, it helps if you find someone who is right for you. Whenever something bad happens to me I immidatly call a friend who either A. makes me laugh (I wouldn't tell them what happened) or B. tell them and they would usually help me cope.
I hope I've helped. Please feel free to talk to me if you want.
