I feel it's quite important to say that not every options works for every person.

Some people may find this type of book helpful, which is great, unfortunately others may not and the main thing to remember is that if after reading something like this you don't feel the advice helps you improve, then there is always another option to try.

For some people it's talking about it, for others that might not work. Sometimes all that's needed can be the passing of time; time to ride it out and allow negative external influences to die down or become less of an issue because I assure you they always do.

We're all different, one size of solution does not fit all. Just remember if you've tried something in the hope of getting better and it didn't work it can feel like there's nothing that can help you but there is always another method of help to try.

Anyone that wants to chat about their wellbeing my messages are always open. Warning: I can waffle on about anything. 😋

One of the best comments I have ever seen on this site. Well done and thank you!
If another option is access to mental health services, with emergency referrals taking weeks. It’s too little. It’s pointless. I wish people that were suffering could mend themselves. We can’t.
Something I realised a few years ago from a posting on Reddit, being depressed doesn't necessarily mean you are 'sad all the time', often it just means you are unable to be as functional as other people. Some days you feel normal, some days you just eat biscuits because cooking requires too much functionality.

Also, go and talk to a professional. Family/friends sometimes judge you and then you have to act like a normal person, which again requires a huge amount of effort.

People tend to be more valued than they realise

My thoughts are with your friends family and you right now , how horrific this is Much more needs to be done relating to this illness that causes these ultimate final events
Thanks Boz
An important thing to look at is your diet, this can have a massive effect without you even realising ! Check to see how much caffeine, sugar, gluten you are consuming, over consumption of these can have plenty of side effects which cause depression related symptoms, I say this as have just experienced it with a family member who it has taken 30 years to realised they're a Celiac and has suffered with bad Dermatitis which is linked to it. Just means we've got to go to the expensive section in Morrisons now but upstairs should benefit from the change in diet !

I never understood how someone could kill themselves, until it happened to me, whereby I totally believed in the fact that I had to kill myself fortunately that was 5 years ago and I'm still here. Depression is a complex affliction, however it's not something I'm an expert on as I suffer from OCD anxiety rather than depression, I have however suffered from brief periods of hopeless depression, so I'm aware of how that feels.

I've done many hours of research in to anxiety and anxiety is linked with depression. Here is a summary of what I know and I think I know can help, I should stress that there isn't a one size fits all. Human biology is immensely complex, almost impossibly complex.

Depression can stem from one or both, environment influence and biological influence. Here're some methods to try to cope with these influencing factors :

1. Environment - Employment, Unemployment, Relationships, Death and existential threat, Finance, poor general health, criminality, drug use
2. Biological factors - current medication, genetic expression.

So with regard to 1. Recognize which factors are in your control and which aren't in your control. Work on the factors that are in your control and reframe your thinking regarding the factors that aren't. Remember nothing stays the same, eventually there will be a change. The most recognized ways to cope with factors beyond your control and to assist you in factors you can control are CBT and Mindfulness. Unfortunately Mindfulness is rife and full of amateur advice. The Mind Illuminated by John Yates PhD is possibly the best written and scientifically backed source on mindfulness and the practice of mindfulness. If you've tried mindfulness and failed or didn't get it, that's the book to read. Reddit subs > r/awakened, r/themindilluminated

2. Biological factors behind depression are highly complex. In terms of neurotransmitters, Serotonin isn't the happy transmitter and Dopamine isn't the motivation transmitter, these neurotransmitters along with a whole host of others have very complex and multifactorial effects in the body, the media over simplifies the complexity. Neurotransmitters have different effects in different parts of the brain and body and can even have opposing effects from the same single transmitter. Unfortunately the following list is the obvious list but each topic on the list can be refined. They are:

i Sleep, ii exercise, iii diet. To refine each is a huge topic, my advice with regard to diet for what it's worth is if you look at a real what you can define as natural diet then the San people (Khoisan) of the South African landscape follow a diet which is a combination of meat and many varied plants. krugerpark.co.za/afr…tml Now the reason humans can eat Paleo, Keto, Vegan, Carnivore is down to our fantastic adaptability, given all the ingredients for a perfect diet, it probably lies somewhere along the lines of some meat and more than just the flesh of the animal, which is detailed in the link above and a varied amount of plants. The San people eat over 100 types of food sources from plants. So forget Keto, Paleo, Carnivore unless of course you've started one, and they're making a difference. Paleo is a false representation of what ancient man ate, the reality is in the link above.

As you can see I can go in to more and more detail, but whilst depression is complicated, look for the simplicity in all the above and refine it. The key thing to remember is that whilst depression feels desperate and painful and dark and hopeless, change gives us hope, because change means the situation is not static. Mindfulness will train you to observe the thinking process and witness that it is transient and fleeting, it will train you how to respond or rather not respond to the thoughts and see the thoughts as separate from your reality. Thoughts aren't exact truth, they are a mental construct of possibilities, but they don't define any truth. They may concern yourself with real things that have happened for example death and tragedy, but it's how you respond to those thoughts. The thoughts are the fuel to the fire of the human condition, your thoughts do not define you.

To summarize the hope is in change and whilst you exist there is always the very great possibility of change happening. I am still alive and here because of change.

Oh and definitely for all I have written is based on my experience and what I've found, you should always seek professional medical care before believing any Internet stranger, me included.

Because he's not 'famous'
For the person who posted of losing a friend yesterday, my deepest condolences to you and to the family and friends of the person who passed away.

It’s seems like such a cliche when people say “things can get better” but it’s true.

I think a lot of people experience that feeling of “what’s the point of even being here?” at some point in their lives, and it’s a valid question. My take on this is that each individual needs to free themselves of the feeling that their life must have some kind of “grand purpose” to warrant existing. That’s not the case for any of us.....The purpose of existing is to pursue happiness. Sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it lands in your lap, but other times you have to work damn, damn hard to get it.

I’m not talking about material possessions, because they fade and are just a “quick-fix” of momentary happiness. I’m talking about things that bring a huge smile to your face.

Things like holding a new baby in your arms, playing on the carpet with a little puppy or kitten, watching the sun set, climbing a mountain, swimming with dolphins, doing a sky-dive, giving a loved-one a big cuddle, helping a little old lady cross the road, watching a favourite band at a concert, going to the theatre, learning to surf, going on a rally-driving experience day, biting into a beautiful chocolate cake, dancing around the house with the music blaring, having a barbecue with friends, chugging along the Norfolk Broads on a boat, giving a stranger a genuine compliment, making someone you love smile.

These are the reasons we exist, and we need to focus on these things and try to experience them as often as possible.

Life can be tough, but this world can also be a wonderful place, so please people, don’t entertain a permanent fix to what is usually a temporary problem.

Sending out love to all those who are affected by depression and mental health issues
Boredom is a huge cause .. getting busy on something helps a lot

Thankyou for sharing your experience. There's a lot of truth in what you're saying and I can identify with a lot in that myself.

Good luck

"Recognize which factors are in your control and which aren't in your control. Work on the factors that are in your control and reframe your thinking regarding the factors that aren't."

My account was set to delete here and I've had to stop the deletion to reply to this thread (I wish it didn't take 30 days until account is deleted).

People who try to commit suicide can often do it for 2 reasons. Because they feel it's too painful to go on or because it IS too painful to go on. The former being done suddenly in an instant, the latter being planned over a longer period of time.

Both are bad and it's sad people get to that point. The latter though can often be because too much is out of someones control and there's so little they can do to change it.


I very much live a life of not wanting to die, but needing to die. By my own admission I'm a highly intelligent guy who has an in depth understanding of my own health problems. I know my strengths, weaknesses (I'm happy with these things, it's who I am) and I know what would really help me get my life sorted.

The problem is I am literally in the dire hole with environment. Family are dead, health prevents me being able to make friends, isolated, living in a town with nothing, NHS have deprived me of support.

This situation has a massive impact on my entire life already but I find repeatedly people and their actions regularly cause me harm in life. Such as when my dog (on a lead) was savaged by another dog (off a lead). The owner turned their back after seeing it happen and walked off. My dog was seriously injured and now has spine problems as a result of the attack. Or, the NHS fobbing me off once again.

Those things push me closer to the "needing to die" aspect of it and away from "not wanting to die". Put it this way, if I get too far into "needing to die", it takes every single ounce of strength to stop myself doing something drastic. Usually with me drinking 10 pints worth of beer to knock myself out instead of going ahead with suicide plans.

I have to do whatever I can to stop being closer to the "needing to die" feeling. Which was a big reason for me setting my account here at HUKD's to be deleted. I can't go into it as my post will be deleted but I'm sure everyone can guess why.

When someone has so little in life and they enjoy being part of the community here, but my participation gets...erm.... Impaired? Compromised? Ruined? by those in a position of authority and I'm dismissed like I'm a nobody, I'm better off deleting my account and doing something else.

Just remember, you're never alone. I can relate to a lot of what you've typed here. What's helped me is Andy's Man Club. There's groups up and down the country and I get to sound off at people experiencing the same things as me. If you ever need a chat inbox me.

They were just some examples that I plucked out of the air. Examples of things that bring me happiness in the case of things I’ve experienced, or that I’m convinced would bring me happiness if and when I get the opportunity to experience them.

Money doesn’t equate to being happy. If it did, then no rich person would ever suffer from depression (which they do) and no poor person would ever be happy (which of course many are)
....as I say they are just examples, and some of them don’t cost a penny.

Please understand that I’m not in any way trying to belittle or over-simplify the complexities of depression, I’m just saying that there are always moments of happiness to be found in life if you want to look for them.

Apologies if this has upset you. As I said before these are just examples, and I appreciate they will be different for each person. I accept that some things that would bring me happiness will not bring happiness to others. Rally driving experience is a perfect example of this. I did this a few years back and thoroughly enjoyed it and brought a huge smile to my face, but at the same time, some people don’t like driving.... some people don’t even have a driving licence, so as I say, each list is going to be different for each individual.

How awful. I am so very sorry for your loss, and for the agony your friend must have felt. When someone in our family dies, we say that we hope they ‘go with love into love, and take only love’, and so I wish your friend peace and release from the pain of the world.

I hope YOU, their family, and friends all have professional support after such a devastating event. *heart emoji*
