    You have to get over the fact that there are actually people out there living and enjoying life, not obsessing about physical features for every moment of their existence.

    Does anyone on here have experience with anti-depressants and had success with them? Can you recommend something?

    I am scared of them and have heard horror stories but I don't think I have a choice anymore, I don't know what else to do Exercise isn't enough, alcohol just makes things worse, I used to smoke a lot of weed but can't get a hold of it anymore, though it did help.

    Please help!
    Well, they may well go hand in hand actually (and not just psychologically) - as inflammation is present both in baldness and depression.

    I have fought very severe depression all of my life; in and out of hospitals, some very serious stuff.

    Here's my take:

    first, you need to talk to someone - and not someone you know, or it will ruin the relationship, you will be/feel a burden.

    Second, you need to move around; one of the things I notice in me and others is that a depressive episode always accompanies a steady slowing of movement, a dwindling of interest in doing anything, until I'm just staring at walls for no reason. BE AWARE of this - and just MOVE. Get up in the morning and MOVE. MOVE ALL DAY.

    Third, keep to a strict and regular schedule in terms of eating and sleeping.

    Fourth, don't isolate yourself.

    Fifth, don't touch alcohol.

    Sixth, EXERCISE - A LOT! IT's anti-inflammatory.

    Seventh, use anti-depressants sparingly. When things get really bad so you can snap out of it. They kind of give you a breather so you can put yourself together again.

    Eighth, take fish oil and eat an anti-inflammatory diet.

    Ninth, realize you are loved.

    At wits end...


    Thanks all the good advice everyone. I think I will avoid ant-depressants for the time being and I agree it may be best to talk to somebody first. I will look into CBT, I think that will be the best approach for me.
