Showers - July 29th 2011, 02:57 AM

I've been diagnosed with Major Depression for 5 years now...and in the past year or 2 (especially in the last 3 weeks, when my girlfriend fucked me over) I don't take showers that often ( anywhere from every 2-7 days) Is this because of the depression, and is it normal for people with it?


Thanks.

Well sometimes depression can cause you to not want to take care of yourself, and this includes showers. Do you find your depression has affected anything else that you do to take care of yourself?
I would say it probably is normal for people with major depression. Depression can cause you to not have as much energy which also has negative impacts.

I'm very sorry to hear that
I know you've probably heard this a million times but time does heal all wounds. Sometimes these things just happen, but the important thing is to keep your chin up and keep on living. Taking your meds will help, so I recommend taking them again.
Everything will be alright

Yea it is I only do cuz it's an escape for me a way no one can yell At me but For others they get the feeling they don't want to it's different for ppl




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

Re: Showers - July 29th 2011, 05:00 AM

Take it from a fellow major depressioner, i know that isn't a word but i'm feeling rebellious today! I'm not exactly proud to admit this but during my bad days/weeks whatever i do not take care of myself at all, i don't shower for days (Once was for two weeks, Ew - I know!), i sleep in bed all day then i'm up all night hence why i'm on TH at 4:51am in the morning (Would like to point out i have had a shower though!). Everyones different with their depression but 9/10 people suffering with it don't take care of themselves, they're too busy being depressed if that makes sense.

You deserve to be happy no matter what you think, it's so easy for me to say chin up, get over it, plenty more fish in the sea etc and in time it probably will but right now the shits hit the fan and you can't see a way out this mess, i don't know your story but you've said she fucked you over so i'm guessing she's done something really bad to piss you off and cause you two to break up. If there's no chance of a reconcilliation (look at me, using big words an' all) then the easiest way, for me, might be different for you was to not even think about them, harder said than done i know but in the long run it helped, i'd stare at their texts, facebook and msn and wish they'd talk to me but see when i deleted their number, facebook & email address it got 10 times easier to move on. Sure i missed them and thought of them now and then but without having to look at anything to remind me of them i wasn't tempted to go back down that spiral!

Just realised how much i've wrote and probably how of that rambling doesn't make sense but give me a break it's 4:58am!

Hope i helped! x

P.s You do deserve to be happy!

Sounds exactly like me. And I explained it in the relationship frum under "Estranged" if you wanna see it. I need a cigarette so fucking bad and my grandfather locked me in (

Depression can cause a person to neglect their personal hygiene. I would not say that it is normal for people with it and I expect that most people do shower. It is a possible manifestation though.

I would say that it does sound like it's coming from the depression, you deserve to be happy though, I know things are difficult right now but you should shower, start taking your meds again, and try and make yourself as happy as you can be.. And I'm sorry /:

Re: Showers - July 29th 2011, 05:30 AM

Right i've read your story and i'm caught up! Is there any chance of you two getting back together and working through it? Or is it definitley over?

If there is then i think you should each put aside an hour or two's free time and have it all out, no stone unturned, talk about everything, the good & the bad, leave the other boyfriend out of it as it might cause her to get her defences up and piss her off. If all goes well after that then make a proposal to start over, forget the bullshit that you've done and she's done and wipe the slate clean.

If not then still have that heart to heart and see if you can still be friends, sometimes that doesn't always work but atleast you can say you took the high road and tried. I go back to my other post and just going your seperate ways and avoiding contact with her and this new knobhead of a boyfriend she has.

Why has your grandfather locked you in? If it's because your angry or something then calm down or atleast to pretend to be calm then he'll let you out, i'd give you a cigarette but the time it got from Scotland to America it would probably end up as a some paper and a few tobacco leaves.

Hope my rambling helps! x

Well she doesn't hate no matter what she says she's lashing out but right now she doesn't want to see you, your kinda going to have to honour that until she's ready.

Please please trust me when i say to forget about her, you've probably tried but not long enough, it takes forever to work but it does!!

Make an excuse to get outside, say you can't get a phone signal and go have a cigarette and chill out, your 18 that means your an adult in Britain, not sure if it's the same in the US.

Stay away from the gang knobhead, it will make you look bad and if you stabbed you'll look a hell of alot worse. xxxxxxxxx

You deserve to be happy. You have a divine right to be happy. That is normal when suffering depression because you care less about yourself, but you can get through this I know it . there will be other girls im sure
