Default Depression Vent Room for Misfits

Hi! If you need a place to say what hurts & you don't know where to say it, I hope you can feel comfortable here. I sometimes feel like I don't fit anywhere, & I think that there are others who can relate to that & might feel more comfortable in a thread for us misfits. As for myself, I can do very well, & then I get depressed. It can be quite a struggle at times, & then I'm back on track again. I've been thinking I need a place where I don't feel like a weird misfit. So I thought maybe we could form an ongoing vent place for us types.

Thumbs up Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

I think this is a great idea.

Although I've been kicking around the mental health system where I live for over 20 years, I still don't have anything in the way of an actual diagnosis. So I don't feel as though I can legitimately claim to be a "member" of any of the forums in the "Mental Health Support" listing in the main menu (e.g. Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Panic & Phobias, etc.) I do have at least a tenuous connection to the LGBTQ+ forum. (It's in the T.) But that forum sees very little activity in general (especially the T part.)

So, anyway, I think having a place for us mental health misfits to check in would be nice if there were to be sufficient interest. I can't say how active I'd be. I mostly just greet new members &, periodically, reply to threads in the Games forum. But it seems it would be a comfort to know such a place as you offer was here. So thanks for this. I hope it becomes a great success!

Thank you so much, @Skeezyks, for your reply. You are highly respected here at PC, which I saw right away when I was new a year ago. I hope it's ok to say God bless you. From my point of view (& I bet for many others here) your links that you provide to newer members are wonderful & generous gifts to those who are seeking help. I feel it's quite an honor to receive your reply to this thread!

Thanks for starting this thread Breaking Dawn. Yes can relate to sometimes doing okay and then becoming depressed. Did ok this weekend and walked outside in the beautiful weather Saturday. Then Sunday had very little motivation and did little, wanted to go shopping and walk outside. No didnít feel like since felt I donít know sad, down, hitting rock bottom, between grief symptoms and pandemic ongoing. Anyway today was better.

Cheers.

Breaking Dawn,

Love the title of the thread--made me think of the Rudolf the Red nose Reindeer and all of his misfit friends--really loved that movie as a child and what it said about misfits.

I think I have been dealing with a bit of on and off depression lately--it makes me sleep more and do less including logging into PC less and not wanting to talk to people as much or, really, do much of anything other than channel surf and watch Youtube videos. Then when I see think of how little I accomplished that day--it makes me feel a little worse about myself. A walk helps a little with this but lately sometimes my chemo makes it harder to even walk. Fortunately, my chemo will be over soon. Only one more to go for a while!

Thanks, @Breaking Dawn... good idea to have such a thread. Hopefully we misfits will fit in.

On the other hand, is it possible not to fit in either a non-misfit or misfit thread? Then I guess one would be a true misfit, or not one at all... or both!

Confused Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

When I feel depressed my gender identity issues mushroom. When my gender identity issues swell, it makes me depressed. More often than not, I don't which is the cause of which. It's that way now. I keep doing what needs to be done regardless. But it can sometimes be a chore.

I do not ''do enough'' is what they always told me. It's very boring. They suck and are stinky

Heart Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

I couldn't do much today, feeling like a sad rag doll. I had a rag doll named Mary that I loved very much when I was little. I hope you, all of you, can think of someone who has loved you & made you know there was something special & important about you. I had an aunt who made me feel that way when I was growing up. In psychology they call that a protective factor, which gives us an advantage, so we somehow make it, regardless of our unfortunate circumstances. Anyway, I'm just going through a little slump right now & I know I'll be fine. And thank you so very much for being there for the rest of us.Take care, dear PC friends.

Today I was sad and it didnít help that I slept poorly last night. Think I need a new a/c and heater since both seem to be noisy and keep me awake sometimes. Need to take NyQuil tonight maybe. Took walks today and watched a movie which helped some, Beetlejuice.

Cool Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

Just another day today... not happy (what is that, anyway?) But not particularly sad either... just sort-of ho-hum-m-m-m-m...

Heart Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

Hi! Yesterday something wonderful happened for me. I had a couple of days that were very difficult, then things got better. I have voices & for some reason we were able to have meaningful discussions about God, & principles/ethics, & the ability to change. Today I don't feel the apprehension like I did. I'm hoping that I'm experiencing a switch to a better path that I have wished for.

My class mates mock me because I'm poor. My friends leave me telling that I talk too much and that I'm crazy. They say I embarrass them. And my own brother hates me. My mom got high expectations about me. I feel like the whole world is trying to strangle me. All I want to say is Im still 15 give me a break, give me some freedom, dont cage me.

I'm definitely a misfit. I don't fit in well with people IRL. I usually just hang out with one friend at a time which makes it better and not so obvious that I don't fit. Online I feel like I fit in with PC especially with the Schizophrenia and Psychosis forum except that I don't game and it seems like everyone games in that forum so I do feel a little out of place. It's good to have a place where all the misfits can fit together!

Smile Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

The past two days were unusually busy being out in the world (where I typically try to avoid going.) Now the old calendar's looking pretty clear. So that's a good thing. Also, after a long stretch of winter-like weather, we're supposedly going to have a week or so of normal & even above normal temperatures. So that's a positive too. Gee... with all of that going on (or not going on depending on how you look at it) I may start to feel positively giddy!
