hi, my name is kevin and ime 20 years old. a few months ago i was in a real bad way. every morning i woke up unhappy and went to work. when i was at work i was sleeply all the time, did not want to do anything and just felt alone. after looking on the internet about depression, i found out that is why i must be acting like this. went to the doctors coz it was getting too much for me to handle. they put me on anti-depressants. during that time i took more than i should of, i went off them and back on them. i got happyer i got worse too. so now i find myself at a crossroad. i did not have a good childhood. i feel like i cant say whats on my mind to people, i dont like to talk coz of this. my last 3 relationships went bad, they ended up goin out with my mates. that made me feel very worthless. just got out of a good relationship, we broke up coz we live too far away from eachother. for that short time we was together i found the love i wanted. i keep on thinking about all theses things and blame myslef. i am ment to be a cage fighter as well. ment to be fighting for a title soon but Mentally all this is killing me. i rember getting jumped a few times as a kid and thinking why did i not fight back? i am finding day to day life very hard to deal with. i daydream alot, i am very paranoid about what people think of me. i just want to know how do i fill that hole Mentally that i have??

Thanks for reading, and hope u can help me.

  • ey kevin.i cant pretend that ive been through as much as you have, but theres sumthin u have that no one else does. something that makes u tougher than all those ppl man. u know what that is? its the fact that uve been thru a hard life. ur almost luckier than all those ppl out there. u know why? cuz u get to experience things young and when u grow up, ull know how life goes. relationships man.. forget them. u dont have to go looking for a good relationship. it will find u. and i know that may sound cliche n all but really man. dont let ur life own u in any way. but at the same time, dont try to own it u know. take ur hands off the steering wheel, but keep ur foot on the break u know what im sayin? let life take its course. write bak

  • It might not be just depression it could be anxiety related. I have had a tough time too. My parents died when I was 12 and that my dad at 22. I have been through an ugly divorce and I miscarried 3 months ago. I suffer from depression with anxiety. You are not going crazy, just find someone to talk to and stay on your meds they take 4-6 weeks to work. You will feel worse before better. I hope this helps.

  • Hi. You say you are a cage fighter. This gave me some ideas. Have you ever been hit in the head very, very hard? I do not know what kind of contact cage fighting entails but I reckon that you might have been punched in the head numerous times. What I am getting at is this- You may have some mild brain damage that would not be severe enough to show up on an MRI. This brain damage could make you depressed or even bipolar. I suggest you see a psyche doctor (psychiatrist) and tell him your a cage fighter and ask him what he reccomends to make you less moody. Maybe he will reccomend a combination of ADD meds with a mood stabilizer. I am not a professional but I know my stuff.

  • You definitly need to be on meds until you can get back on your feet. Medication will not solve your problems, but they will (in the correct doses) give you the peace of mind you need to deal with your situation. Talking to a therapist is the best way. Childhood matters are hard to deal with alone. I know, I have been there. Talking is a way of releasing feelings you didn't even know you had or even feelings that you didn't want anyone to know you had. It is a way of letting the world know that someone who was supposed to take care of you didn't. You will never get this time back, but you can work on accepting that whatever problems you had were there. Belive me it works! Stay safe... Kiera

  • Hey there - No you are are not having a mental breakdown - relationship break-ups make us depressed. You have a job, great. Take the meds, ck out therapy, take a break from dating world, Exercise is the key to getting out of depression (once your meds kick in) , excercise make you feel good, look good, and then makes you feel good about yourself. Focus on your job, making and saving money, having fun (still take a break from actual dating) EXERCISING- AT YOUR AGE do not waste your youth - take the meds and exercise - eventually you may be able to wean off them - but only under dr supervision. This is all just common sense with a spice of my own wisdom - I have been through a lot.

  • Thanks for posting about Lymes disease and how it affects people. Today, too many think drugs are the answer and the majority of the time they are the very wrong thing and mask symptoms that may have gotten you a proper diagnosis in the first place. For instance many veterans that went through unimaginable ***l were drugged up and given a tag for Bi-Polar, when the reality was these people had PTSD. Psychotropic drugs can screw you up in ways that are not funny. They can turn a normal person into a zombie and do anything but help you get better. Bi-polar is a stupid term like Fibromialgia, they cover up very real problems for Doctors that assume they are better or smarter than their patients. These kind do not belong in medicine they belong on a gallows. Fibromialgia, is just a long stupid word that means: "All over is pain", it means they are laughing at you and that name covers up the fact that they don't know. Of course they are not going to do the intelligent thing and say they do not know, what they do is make up a lofty term to mask their ineptness and stupidity. What I am saying is the fewer chemicals you have in you the healthier you will become. Your body will take care of itself if given a chance no witchdoctor needed. Think about it!

  • Hi Kevin I think you answered one of your questions yourself. You said you daydream a lot - well, to find happiness you have to stop day dreaming and go out and get it for real. Nothing will ever fall into your lap, regardless of whether you think it does for other people, or not. You will have to start to love yourself too, first before anyone else. Cage fighting is not a way to love yourself and i cant see how that can help you with the way you describe how you feel right now. You're 20 years old, you shouldn't even be doing that. Quit taking pills, i can tell you now that your self esteem is the cause of your problems, not a chemical imbalance - they will just **** your head up some more. I'm sure if you pick yourself up and brush yourself down, you will be able to see more clearly that you have the potential for a fulfilled life with someone who loves you and you CAN find things about you that are good and things in life you enjoy - go look for them, the Internet is a start. Be kind to yourself because sadly, there are very few people out there who actually give a ****.

  • You may have been born in 1987, a Chinese Year of the Cat (or Rabbit). While they certainly can fight, they also need a profound spiritual life. Your name further begins with (K) and has an (i) in it, meaning sensitivity. If organized religion didn't do it for you, read the book Ask And It Is Given by Esther Hicks. Another great one is Hands Of Light by Barbara Ann Brennan. Get your astrology and numerology from http://astro.cafeastrology.com - they do it well. If you find yourself responding well, it will show the general ingredient that your soul is now asking for.

  • Everyone knows that insurance premiums can be affected by your credit history or perhaps a spotty driving record in the case of auto insurance. But few people realize that an insurance company's loss experience is one of the biggest factors for determining how much they will pay for coverage. How so? Well, say for example an insurance company paid out a large amount of homeowner insurance claims due to a particularly catastrophic year of floods and fire damage. The same insurance company may also provide auto insurance coverage. To compensate for the losses experienced under their home owner insurance division, they may raise premiums for their car insurance customers even if they had no accidents or tickets. Or, they could simply increase the insurance prices for house insurance policyholders in another state.
