Social media worsening depression

So does anyone feel that social media makes them feel worse? I have a tendency to compare myself to others - everyone always looks so happy.... I've just started the beginning of my one month social media detox (facebook, as I don't have any other social media platforms). I'm hoping it'll do me some...

Re: Always find me in the kitchen at parties ........

Hi mezzaninedoor, I'm 19 years old and everyone my age is constantly at parties, getting drunk and socialising 24/7. Me? I can barely socialise with my friends in a restaurant.

Re: Books: About Mental Health

Hi, The last book I read about depression was called Depression is a Liar, by Danny Baker. This book made me cry. I related to SO MUCH OF IT, it was a total eye opener. He is a truly inspirational man and I will never forget his book. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Depression-Liar-Danny-Baker-ebook/dp/B00...

Re: Simple Jokes ............

That made me chuckle! Here's some I found off the internet that made me grin: A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything." Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?" An invisible man...

Re: I Believe In The Three C's: Chocolate, Cheese and Coffee <3

Mine is Chocolate, (self)compassion and no comparison. I.e, eat as much chocolate as you want, always be compassionate towards yourself - you're suffering from a horrendous, difficult, all-consuming illness, and you deserve to be kind to yourself., and my golden rule - DO NOT COMPARE yourself to oth...

Re: I don't want to live anymore

Hi,
They will be looking at increasing my medication, potentially to 300mg each.
How were your experiences with home treatment? I was discharged from them on Friday myself.
For me, I have no energy. Even typing this consumes me, even though I just woke up from an hour nap... :(

I don't want to live anymore

So as the title suggests, I am suffering from intense, severe suicidal depression. I have tried so many ways to get rid of the horrific thoughts inside my head. I've tried therapy, I've tried CBT, I've tried medication, I've tried going out with friends, I've tried to keep myself busy, I've tried to...
