Formerly know as the depression thread on the old forum. I personally loved the discussion there, so share your experiences with depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety and anything else. We're all here for each other. :)

My depression and social anxiety was caused by watching a lot of bad things and because I was glued to the screens during my call centres days . I got turned into an internet addict.

I don't have any tv, no social life at all. I have closed down almost all social media. Instagram is a killer way too many hot girls on there which can be distracting so I have decided to shut that down as well. Internet addiction or porn addiction is awful. I wish I had never picked it up but mind you it allowed my mind to focus on finding such beautiful music. I am looking at doing jobs of recording my own voice for audiobooks, and radio commercials out there just so I can get out of my comfort zone and start having a higher opinion about myself. Because of my early days I struggle with confidence, judgement, self love, self esteem because of a fear of being judged by others. Dealing with bullies and psychopaths in a high stress situation, unfortunately unlocked the stress response for sexual urges and the fight or flight responses. It wasn't me who went through it was the entire workforce in that Corporate environment I worked under that went through this ordeal.

Look at the reviews.

You are not alone if that helps. I have suffered from the same issues my whole life. Sometimes is getting so debilitating to such an extent that is hard to show your nose out of the door.

I don't think there is such thing as porn addiction, internet addiction, gaming addiction...In most cases they are symptom not the cause. Do you think about porn and surfing internet when you're outside, going for a walk, hiking, exercise, playing sports? I noticed that if i change my environment i don't think about those things at all. As i spend most of my days locked between four walls, bored out of my mind, it's next to impossible to not beat the meat (i don't think masturbation in particular is bad, mostly porn) or surf mindlessly.

I had my first skype session with my therapist last Monday and i'm going to be a tough case for him. It's going to be a long, long process...
I liked him though. Met him in person once in his office but he will not be able to go there (didn't ask him why, maybe because the virus, he is 76 year old). So we are doing skype sessions...


@Progrez, don't you think you need some help from the outside - psychologist, psychotherapist?

Take care.

I have, thankfully, always had a pretty strong mental health. Never been depressed, stressed or anything like that and whenever I might feel like getting close to any of that, something inside me just goes "click" and I don't care about the stuff, which eventuelly probably will get me stressed.
A good example of that comes from my work-life; I'm a teacher and almost every day we get messages from angry parents and 95% of the time these messages are irrational and sometimes even personal or extremely mean spiritied. Some of these messages gets under my colleagues skin and can ruin their entire day. It might sound silly, but some of the messages are pretty damn extreme. Luckily, whevener I get a message like that, I laugh at it (if there's nothing to if of course) and I won't reply to it for a couple of days (sometimes done on purpose). I almost never get frustrated by things like that and since my social life comes from work it's pretty much the only thing, which has a chance of irritating me.

Now, one thing I do struggle with is sleep paralysis and night terrors, which can take a toll on my mood and even physical health at times. I've found a couple of ways I can limit these experiences, but never turn them off entirely.

Well, I went to over 4 different ones plus the ones from work. It's me who has to convince myself. My former boss is an asshole he took my perfect stats with him I got nothing he slept with some of the younger girls. I was laughed at, gas lighted, traumatized, bullied and mocked and people were gossiping behind my back. My bosses were calling me delusional. after I sent an email to the top secretary and the deputy prime minister the people left that entire site a week after I resigned from a permanent role and the most safest job you can get. I live in a country which was used as a prison camp I should not be surprised by the bullying involved.

Mental health is very important imo. A LOT of people suffer daily from derpession, anxiety etc. It is however very important that you do something about it yourself, not only reliing on drugs or even visits to the psychiatrist. Taking your medicine and spend time with other people is the best medicine you could get actually. Stay healthy, both mentally and physically (covid) people :)

I've had depression and anxiety for years but I manage it so much better these days. I use Music Therapy and Herbal Therapy and it really does work. I also got myself a puppy earlier this year too and since I've had him I'm alot happier these days as I go on long walks to beautiful places along with meeting interesting people when you're out and about.

I'm concerned that i suffer from eco-anxiety but i haven't been diagnosed as such. I have felt very depressed and stressed out at times in my life. Some times i wonder how i made it this far.

You can snap out of that very easily with facts and statistics. I wouldn't worry about it. The media and the big corporate giants are weaponising this by fear mongering the people with misinformation. Climate change in the way it is portrayed by them is all a lie, a theory that is alot of nonsense especially given that the sun and the solar winds influences the temperature of our planet. I have changed peoples perspectives on this and with the evidence to back it up I have cured their anxiety over this "Eco-Anxiety". I would strong advise to avoid the establishment backed media or the Mainstream Media as it is most commonly known as. I would be happy to help provide you educational videos about it if you are curious to know more.

I don't know whether you are taking the side of the fossil fuel industry and claiming climate change isn't real or man made or you are saying they are spreading misinformation and that it is real.

That could be a good college entrance exam question. What point of view is the author taking? (correct answer: without additional details, unclear because...)
Since he's from the UK, he's most likely taking the side of the fossil fuel industry. I'm assuming this based on an article that mentions the UK climate change act of 2008 and the country's net-zero emissions goal by 2050. With a government that supports climate change to that extent I wouldn't be surprised if mainstream media supported the theory of climate change, as well.
In the US you would have the exact opposite.
