ILLEGALELEPHANTGUNphobiaI have agoraphobia. I can't leave my house easily so doing other things is extremely difficult and so i am basically stuck like this.yeah thats a mindset, youre not crippled. go outside.

This has got to be the dumbest comment I’ve seen on the internet all day. It actually fucks me off so much when cunts talk about psychological issues as if they’ve ever studied it or lived it.

Don’t listen to mindless idiots like this, @phobia, I hope love and support comes your way, you deserve better.

Extine is the best. And he's right, too. Finding something different is important, I think. That can mean cleaning a spot in your room you usually forget about, like under your bed, or it can mean trying something you don't do often, like writing or doing pushups or rapping, or you could maybe just try a new video game. But as long as you're not a literal prisoner, no matter how stuck in the house you are, you can always find a way to make new experiences. People have been doing it for thousands millions of years, and in modern times you can be stationary and creative more easily than ever before. You can do it too!

It doesn't even take empathy. All it takes is a quick google search to understand that things like depression are serious medical problems, and telling someone to "go outside" or to "just cheer up" do nothing to help those affected.

His delivery is obviously awful but I will reaffirm that he is basically right;

A lot of people blame tf2 / video games for their depression but for me, the height of my depression was definitely after I quit tf2 in s21. I'd gone from an asocial loner with a hobby to an asocial loner with no hobbies, I'd thought quitting tf2 would fix all my issues but in reality, it amplified them. I spent the whole year after that neglecting my studies, my friends, and my own personal health. I eventually ended up coming back to tf2 (obviously) and honestly I'd say it has a positive impact on my mental health, for a few hours a night I get to hang out with some chill guys and play my favorite game in a good environment.

What actually ""ended"" my depression (I haven't felt seriously depressed for over a year now) was a drastic change in living situations, I moved to a new city, made a whole new circle of friends, and was immensely busy with first-year engineering work at university. It was basically a soft reset on my life up to that point, I started working out, taking my studies very seriously, started acting more extroverted, and actively trying to make friends with strangers, things that were basically unthinkable to me in high school.

Earlier in the thread, you said you had agoraphobia, so obviously what worked for me won't work for you, but as someone else who has dealt with serious depressive episodes the best advice I can give is to change things up, get out of your rut and do things you've never done before, go places you've never been, whatever or wherever that might be. I understand if you brush this off though, I heard this exact same advice from others when I was dealing with depressive episodes; it took the actual material conditions of my life forcing me to change before I actually did anything, making me very lucky.

ILLEGALELEPHANTGUNthe mob mentality here is not going to help you. continue to get hug boxed by some faggots who will never meet you irl or do anything good for you other than pat you on the back for crying online. seriously, go outside and get a hobby. youll feel a lot better. the only reason youre downvoting me is because you know its true. peace out.

I wasn't asking for help. I was just venting. Maybe one day you'll realize that you're an asshole and you'll become a better person, until then good luck.

imma be honest mr. illegalelephantgun, if you had posted what you just posted now instead of what u posted earlier people wouldnt have both downvoted and properly ripped your ass asunder. you of all people should realize what will come off as insensitive dismissal of ones issues and needs, and what is a harsh yet much needed truth for what one should do to overcome their issues, and the fact that you pulled this shit, complained about getting downfragged, AND THEN decided to correct your wrong doing (while still calling us faggots btw lol) is utterly abysmal behavior.

i expect better from someone who does have experience with this shit. you know its much harder to get thru than u make it out to be.

you can be both truthful and helpful dipshit, the truth doesnt always have to hurt.

I'm no doctor but I would strongly recommend therapy and spending time with your loved ones. I can only speak for myself but if a friend or family member of mine was facing the issues you do I wouldn't hesitate to help them out as best I can.

there are always going to be people like this, try to surround yourself with a company of good people. In my experience there are a lot more of them than you may think.

damn what an incredibly smart and wise advice. Just be yourself phobia and everything will be alright!

All I can say is you should contact specalists, people who actually studied this and know how to help you properly, rather than asking tf2 gamers.
There are plenty of trained counsellors, psychologist and specialists in general out there ready to hear you out and help you, Googling it is literally all you have to do, look for the phone numbers and call them straight away, as obvious as that might sound it's really that simple.
The way I see it, the only thing that can help you is to let real qualified professionists help you, since anyone else your parents included are most likely gonna have no clue on how to face this dark beast that is depression.
