I feel like there's many contributing factors. regarding my homelife, I stay home with my parents, my home was broken into for the 2nd time of us living there. That contributes to anxiety and paranoia. I can't really communicate with my parents due to language barrier, we're Asian. I also never had much support growing up as well so my home life was not always the healthiest. I live in quite a crime ridden area and feel like it's the source of my depression. I used to have a healthy life and felt fine mentally until sometime recently. After a low back injury and having a trapped nerve I felt like things has gotten worse for me. My goal is to move out which I'm working towards but its hard to envision a future because I have these weird thoughts and anxious feeling of not making it. It's hard to describe.

C'mon man - it's well known that the US has terrible mental health care - it certainly can't look down on other developed countries.

How so? If you have the right care and are willing to fund help, there are tons of psychiatrist/therapist in the US you can talk to

Yeah, there are tons of therapists willing to listen to the first world problems of those with money - but that's not helping those in the most need.

Access to mental health care is worse than physical medical help - but that's common to many developed countries.

Terrible was maybe slightly too strong a word - but I wouldn't be proud of current mental health care - it could be much better.

Serious question, is depression like a self induced disease or something genetically programmed in to eat your brain is wired?

A lot of people that deal with depression seem to have all the tools needed to win but the perception seems confusing.

If there's really a diseases that causes people to feel sad and there's nothing that can be done to fix them that's kind of weird and depressing essentially.

You know it might be self induced. In the past I've sulked in negativity, it has taken me work to change.

Appreciate your response. I didn't want to come off as condescending but always wondered.

Everything I see online points to "use medicine"

That's like a professional way of telling someone to smoke a blunt, run some laps, make some music, or have some drinks.

Sorry to hear that man, what is most important is that you made it through! If you need someone to talk to, feel free to reach out.

Its a bit of both. Genetics play role in whether or not someone is predisposed to depression. Environment factors such as a dysfunctional home or other traumatic events can contribute.

The way in which you internalize traumatic events or daily stressors IMO does play a role.

And for the record I don't think there's nothing wrong with not wanting to be social. It takes a realistic person to mention that being around multiple personalities and forced communications due to the holidays is draining.

The medicine is often used to counterbalance certain chemical imbalances in the brain.

Nothing condescending about asking; IMO I believe many people who suffer from depression appreciate when someone wants to understand what they are going through.

So essentially if schools had a class on handling emotions and internal problems the same way they should teach financial literacy, it wouldn't be as big of a problem?

I dont think it would be the silver bullet but I believe that it would help those who are predisposed to understand how they should approach their depression/anxiety. However, it may not solve everything as a certain part of it may be chemical.

FYI - Depression is often described as "anger turned inward".

I think there might be predisposition to depression. But when I've sulked and lived in negativity. It didn't work out I had to put in work to have it go away.

I've been seeing my old college counselor more lately and am more directionless than ever.

 

I'm coasting through life. Everything is just "okay" and I feel like I don't have a purpose / ultimate goal.

 

I've already set up a plan -- my savings are all ready to transfer to my family in the worst case scenario.

This is how I feel on a daily basis. I try to tell myself that I should be happy and that there are people who would kill to have things as good as me, but I just feel unfulfilled and aimless. I don't really enjoy what I do for a living, but have no idea what would make me happy, and plus it'd be hard to replace my income.

 

So I just keep coasting daily. And as I get older, my world seems to keep getting smaller, as friends retreat into their own families and offspring. My girl wants to start trying for kids soon, which should be a joyous occasion, but as I contemplate a future of child-rearing and the attendant full-time grinding to provide for a family the next 20 years, I can't help but feel like I'm getting ready to lock myself into a prison of my own design.

I get so depressed and isolated that sometimes it's hard for me to function in society. I don't know if I'll ever be the same.
