    Do you suffer from clinical depression? Staying busy is the best cure my man. Also have you tried any herbs? St. Johns Wort will work wonders.

    I have
    I've heard of st johns wart and thinking of trying it. never been diagnosed with anything but I'm a big time introvert.
    It's strange because I've become fairly successful, started my own construction company, am doing really well but in my personal life I have basically 0 friends. . I used to have a lot of friends but didn't stay in touch. This site is my therapy...

    I hear ya, in similar place myself, without the success though. Haven't had a friend in close to 12 years, limited contact with people not in my immediate family and getting just plain worn down day by long lasting day. Thoughts of just giving up are creeping in more frequently and just can't see myself living 40+ more years (based on average life expectancy) like this. Even jerking off is no fun anymore.

    But oh well, whatever the future brings it brings I guess, I just don't have the willpower or energy to put up the fight to change things.

    Hope things turn around for you though.

    You are correct, depression is not solved with success and money. When you're depressed you could have a bag of 100 bills next to you and it wouldn't make a bit of difference.

    Loneliness can for sure cause depression. Going out to bars is not the answer for that either. Do you have any family?

    I know this lady that was a soccer star in college.

    At the age of 23 she got sick and is in constant pain.

    Was in a wheel chair for 2 years.

    At the age of 46 she is going to the Mayo Clinic 5 times a week so they can test new stuff on her.

    She has the best outlook on life I have ever met. Go figure?

    Aside from hookers, if y'all are in a long lasting funk and isolation, get a hobby where you interact w/ people face to face. Shooting pool, Paintball, Darts, Going to Shows. If yer old, old people generally take up Cards, Dancing, Bingo to give purpose to their life and stave off depression.

    If you are drinking or taking pills, stop.

    It never helps.

    Short answer. If you have health insurance with any kind of mental health benefits, make an appointment. Go online to your insurance company's website with your card in hand and select a man or woman, whichever you prefer, and make an appointment with a psychologist or psychiatrist. I am guessing that if this is an option you have already considered it and would like some kind of affirmation. Do it. You are paying for it and there is no stigma. You are not going to be locked into anything. Insurance companies hate to pay for anything so don't worry. You will always have an out. If insurance is not an option then try to study up on depression and some of the coping mechanisms that are readily available. Maybe find a support group locally. I listen to a great podcast called http://mentalpod.com/ The host is the comedian that used to be on 'Dinner and a Movie' and he talks all things mental health with a variety of guests and experts. Really good stuff. It might make you feel better. Hang in there man, and know that we've all been there in some respect.
