Insert brief explanatory title [here] - July 31st 2011, 07:18 PM

A few months back I made a thread about what to do in a certain situation, i'll brief you on what it is.

1) I am not depressed because of some sort of terrible life situation or anything in the past, in fact over 70% of the time I could care less what happens to anyone, including myself. On top of that anything that DOES happen, I don't stress over compared to most people.

2) It's hard to call it depression because i've been this way my whole life, I prefer to call it permanently cynical and miserable. But if you point out that i'm miserable, i'll put up every effort to avoid getting help. An example would be when someone called out on how depressed I was (it was a teacher) and I put on such a facade of happiness and strength that she never questioned my happiness again.

3) With all that being said, I'm not here to cure my depression. I'm here to live with it and pretend to enjoy this world like anyone else. This is mainly for my mother, since I at least owe her the decency of trying to outlive her. After that i'll probably use carbon monoxide and end myself, since there'd be no purpose of living after her death.

4) Now that we know what my goals are, what I am ASKING is how to make all these years fly by. At first I thought about alcohol or drugs but those would likely ruin any job or career I have, which would put my mother in an unhappy state (who enjoys seeing their son not having a job, honestly.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated, if I was able to give appreciation.

Hey there,

I'm going to say a good way to make life go faster is to have fun. Take every opportunity that it throws at you and try to enjoy each and every one of them. By embracing life in this way you might even come to enjoy it and change your goals.

I'm glad you've decided against using drugs to make life go faster since that's never a good route to go down and will probably do more harm than good.

I know you said you're not here to cure your depression but I'm going to offer some advice on that anyway in case you ever change your mind. Speak to someone. A doctor, a friend, your parents. Anyone really. You'll be surprised at how much better you feel after you've told someone.

I hope this helped a little bit and I do sincerely hope that you change your mind about trying to deal with your depression.

Whenever i talk to anyone I tend to regret it, which is why I don't have any real friends.
