    That's the thing with depression.  You can be doing karaoke in the Harry after Liverpool have just beat United 6-0, and still feel that you have no alternative but to kill yourself.

    This is glib, but true.

    Bar the usual financial strains there is absolutely no reason for me to be depressed currently, quite the opposite in fact, yet I am. Not dreadfully so, but enough to make normal life difficult for me.

    It's irrational, cos your brain chemistry is misbehaving.

    Ta Dave.
    I'd love to say that was a good night; but if I remember correctly we lost to Spurs and that was the same weekend when everything went to shit for me for a very long time.
    Still plodding though.
    Yes, it was a good night.

    That sounds ace.
    Hope the opportunity presents itself.
    had a bit of luck in 2013 when I managed to catch up with Spion Kop in London and we caught the game at White Hart Lane.
    That match was absolute medicine for me; my last game in 2011 was also Spurs and we lost at Anfield so to twat them 5-0 at theirs 2 years later was fucking amazing.

    Hard to believe this was almost 6 years ago. I found my way out of it for long enough to have forgotten what it was really like.

    Then suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, the darkness came back. Reading this thread again is somewhat reassuring.
    Many of us have beaten it down before, and will likely have to face it again some day.

    Seems to be a cycle

    It's just remembering you've done it before, and you can do it again

    I am not going to pretend I have a clue what to say but I wish it were as easy as that scene in Shawshank Redemption where Tim Robbins plays opera over the prison tanoy lifting the spirits of the prisoners.
    I hope you find something to lift your mood mate.

    There may be a pretty significant positive to this too. I think your experience is invaluable preparation for what the bastard of a universe has ensured will await our consciousness's upon death. Darkness, isolation, endlessly long periods of stagnation, total silence, and being alone for trillions of years at a time with nothing but your own thoughts for company. In the likely event that our conscience endures due to mathematics, then those seem like an accurate description of the end game to me. I'll try my best to look for a way to save us all, but alas I wouldn't give myself more than a decade before I totally lose my mind and turn into some incomprehensible disembodied wreck. Then it will be up to you to hang in there long enough for a solution reveal itself to you.

    I'm not insane, get that thought out of your mind, I speak only the truth to you.

    For anyone suffering from depression or anxiety, I would recommend looking at whether CBD may be a treatment option for you. My wife has been using it for a while now and the effects have been quite profound. Happy to go into more detail via PM if anyone is interested.

    CBD has done wonders for my anxiety, insomnia, and back pain.

    I've been off the booze for more than a month now, which is the longest in forever, and being sober is definitely helping me to keep the darkness at bay.
    CBD has helped enormously during the weaning off period.

    How is she taking it?

    She started by taking it in drops under the tongue, but more recently we've switched to a water soluble form which can be added to drinks.

    Try yoga and meditation and Sufi chanting it does wonders.
