what the f**k does drinking bleach have to do with being bipolar?"

How the f**k is that a "trolling post"? What the f**k DOES drinking bleach have to do with being bi-polar? Everyone that's bi-polar is retardedly suicidal are they, and think an agonisingly painful death is better than being a bit upset today?


no way. nah but that is extreme ignorance or just a trolling post.

You guys making jokes about mental health are pathetic, seriously. Why would you even joke about that?

Hey bro, sorry to hear that. I went through a fairly bad spell of depression a couple of years back, only 2 things that got me out of it were my girlfriend and a positive mental attitude. Obvs you can't just say to your gf to have a positive attitude, cos that takes time, but I know for me the more time i spent with my gf the less time i was focusing on my depression (not that i was purposely focusing on it, but it's generally when you're alone that you start to feel it - or stop feeling, whatever way you want to look at it). You could also try subtle things like having catchy, cheery tunes playing on low in the background when she's around, that way it'll get stuck in her head and she might start singing along to it when she's walking home or whatever.

Anyway ignore the shitdicks that just want to spread the hate, hope I was at least some way helpful

a few of my best friends are bi polar. ive had to deal with them drinking bleach and shit, trying to overdose. shits scary.


Staff Edit - Removed trolling post


And at the same time, how does one overdose on bleach? Is there a recommended daily allowance of bleach that i'm somehow missing?
The question is: how much is too much?


i want to see what spurtung said

meant that separate, as in trying to od on benzos etc.

You really don't have any idea about mental health do you? Get out of your protected cocooned life and take a look. You have no idea what it's like for people with mental health problems so don't you dare start saying stuff like that, it's disgusting. Don't be so narrow minded.
I really do hope you never have to witness anything like this because you wouldn't be able to cope.

Thanks a lot for your support, much appreciated, its good that people are able to talk about there own experiences with it, i hate the fact it is tabooed too often.
I wish you the best of luck
Very helpful!
Shame some people are still childish about the topic really.

Woah, what the f**k crawled up your arse? So you're telling me someone with bi-polar has wet dreams about downing bottles of bleach? Get real.

The fact you seem to think you're holier than thou for having a "girlfriend" with bi-polar is f**king hilarious.

You're an idiot.
On top of that, you came to a forum with a community you don't even know to ask for advice on dealing with something you clearly take incredibly seriously. That makes you a double idiot.

You're too young to be dealing with this shit man, one poster already stated it to give her space and take a break for a while. I've been in your exact same situation man and it is draining to be talking people out of suicide.

Another poster stated his girlfriend and a positive attitude helped fix him and get better. I've been here too they helped me get over a death of someone but if she isn't getting better and she's this far out where suicide is being attempted theirs nothing you can do for her. It's up to her to get herself better their is nothing you can do UNLESS the cause of her depression can be handled but we dont have any information on what is causing it, if it can be handled or changed then that's all you gotta do otherwise IMO seeing as i've been the depressee and one with a suicidal. Drop them if they don't have the will to get better if it's nothing you can fix.

first off kid, most "mental health problems" young people have now days is bullshit. Sorry but its true, the mind is a powerful thing, and young people today are too damn dramatic about everything it seems. So they start feeling sad and automatically think its depression and after a while their brain makes it so. Now with that sad, want an easy way to find out how depressed she is? get a gun load it and hand it to her, see what she does.

I don't know if many of you guys/girls out there have ever had the misfortune of having depression yourself or knowing someone close to you who has suffered of it; but i was wondering if you lovely people of Torn could help.
My girlfriend suffers with depression, at first it was hard to deal with but now im coming to terms with it. However, because of this she gets very (and I mean very) paranoid that i cheat on her (which I don't and never would do, it's disgusting) and at times is very difficult to deal with. I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice to help me show her that I would never do anything like that. I know this isn't really the place to post this kind of thing but yeah.. Just thought i'd try.

Anyone else got any depression stories or any advice they could give to others or to people trying to help others overcome it?
I don't want depression to be a taboo topic, people should talk freely about it. Thank you for your time.


Tell her to get over the paranoi, otherwise you might as well get out now.

Give her a fat cap of MDMA and make her go out with a few of her friends, her depression will be gone in no time.

you must have missed the part where i said "an easy way to find out how depressed she is"

hence, not saying he should but it is the easiest way to find out.

But if that offends you i advise you not to read my post on these subjects.

But honestly i find it amazing they allow you to just give them the bird and say eff you and nothing happens. Yet they dont let him to troll a topic that is made for trolling.

This is not in any way a troll. I thought id be able to get some advice from you guys but most of you seem insistent on being unhelpful. If you have nothing useful for me then don't reply. I just wanted this to be a place for people to talk about depression and for people to give some advice as they come and go; not judge those who suffer with mental health. 1/5 people have depression worldwide so i dont see why its such a taboo topic and so vulnerable to attack, its sad really.

Thanks to all those who have helped in some way. Things seem to be looking on the up, if anyone else needs any advice at all then just message me
cheers

A lot of people get depressed, there are obviously different levels of it and people react different. At some point I think it will hit most people so anyone who denies it are full of s**t.

I'd suggest talking to family members and close friends, if you can't then go to your doctors. That's what they're there for, they will help you and are easy to talk to.

Hmm. What about those with chemical imbalances in their brain, such as the lack of serotonin which leads to a lack of dopamine, which makes them depressed?

I would guess that if some of the chemical imbalances come from food (modern diets), it could also be blamed on being well off.

Some brains just don't create enough serotonin which will make that person naturally depressed.

Hi:

I will be very open and honest. For many years I suffered terrible melancholic depression. Causes? Could be childhood, enough trauma there. Adolescence...same. Trauma in young adulthood? Yup. Some self manufactured, some completely beyond my control.

I suffered all manner of assaults and abuses in my life.

Went to counselling, and was further abused by one.

At some point years later, in a high stress relationship, I was put on Paxil...I told my doc, of side effects right away...He increased my dose. I went off the edge for a bit. Then went cold turkey...Now they call it discontinuation syndrome. I was on a max dose, and having had 3 years of opiates then a quick taper off, I can tell you coming off Paxil like that is complete and utter torture.

Now after years of experience, I have come to the conclusion that while depression is very serious, a lot is self manufactured, through mal-adaptive traits, poor life style habits (food, sleep, caffiene, activities), dwelling on your angst, and a trust and reliance in current therapies.

In other words, suck it up buttercup, stop your f**king whining, and get on with life. Life is what it is. From the microscopic to the gargantuan, life is a continual transition from creation to destruction. Our atoms we are made of will soon form something else. As they once were part of another creation.

Enjoy what you have, what you are, what you enjoy, and stop being your own worst enemy.

WARNING: SSRI anti-depressants, have been linked in several legal cases to homicide and suicide. A dramatic increase in suicide among control group in suppressed trials. Do the research.

Hope this helps.

Now after years of experience, I have come to the conclusion that while depression is very serious, a lot is self manufactured, through mal-adaptive traits, poor life style habits (food, sleep, caffiene, activities), dwelling on your angst, and a trust and reliance in current therapies.

In other words, suck it up buttercup, stop your f**king whining, and get on with life. Life is what it is. From the microscopic to the gargantuan, life is a continual transition from creation to destruction. Our atoms we are made of will soon form something else. As they once were part of another creation.

Enjoy what you have, what you are, what you enjoy, and stop being your own worst enemy.

Hope this helps.
