  • A New Test Measures Analytical Thinking Linked to Depression, Fueling the Idea That Depression May Be a Form of Adaptation | Esperanza - Hope To Cope
    my father was broke and of course drunk That s when we were forced to hear hours on end lectures about saving money getting an education a good job etc Yet as young pre teens and teens when we would find odd jobs to earn money for ourselves and save it it was our father who always had to borrow it Of course we never got paid back And if we tried to lie about having any money we were often punished by him tearing apart our rooms or yelling and threatening us with the belt until we told the truth and gave him the money Now the next turn in this pattern is that when I have money I can t keep it impulsively I shop I shop until my money s gone So I sit and I suffer I cry I refuse to leave the house I don t work I m on disability and I barely make ends meet When I make up my mind to ignore the crisis and move on then I m ok but then that brings about a crisis later It s a never ending cycle and I wonder if its the precursor to my every 2 3 month marker for depression or manic episodes I am interested in reading more research on this topic as it has definitely opened my eyes to some behavior changes that I can make when the next crisis hits I can leave the past behind me take responsibility for the problem at hand and move forward to resolve it My father s dead and so too are his lectures and abuse Thank you Dave C September 13 2015 Reply am 56 years old married 2 wonderful children good job I own a house no drugs or alcohol problems I never went to jail no DUI s but was raised in a home where emotions were suppressed and expressing feelings were viewed as a weakness It has been a long and hard 3 year long journey of pain suicidal ideation anhedonia self discovery and after I take you through my path I hope you will find just one thing but a very important thing HOPE Lived a life of suppressed emotion and feelings kind made my way trough life by stepping on others to get what I wanted and thought that was the way of the world At 53 years old I would look in the mirror and forgot what I looked like I gradually went into a severe state of depression which progressively got worse day by day for 3 years I know it sounds strange but I hated myself I have been depressed for over 3 years and tried several counselors but all they seemed to do was trash my father for being a bad parent I have a fear of everything even leaving the house because my car may breakdown or something might happen to me I have an 8 year old son and I am 54 years old and my wife works so I am home with him and have to get him ready for school do homework and I can t handle the responsibility I don t leave the house in fear something may happen and I will not be here for the bus My wife is ready to leave because I am such mess my son has ADHD and it s hard for him to focus on anything I had many appointments with psychiatrist s but became petrified of meds because I tried them before and all I thought about was suicide it got so bad all I wanted to do is sleep I was convinced I would either die or be in a hospital because I was in such bad shape I could not leave my house I had developed agoraphobia I slept all day everyday and hated to wake up I wanted my like back I feel like a failure and I can t do anything about it I felt as if i hit rock bottom and the only place lower was 6 feet under but I hung on and started to listen to bible verses and hear about people being born again so I prayed and nothing seemed to happen not yet anyway I kept listening to motivational speeches by preachers Tony Robbins anyone that would get my mind off of myself I slowly began to tolerate myself and after a period of time I started to like myself a little bit I carried so much guilt and shame for things I did in the past and my walls were so high they were preventing me from knowing who i was and what my purpose in life was I literally had to relearn how to feel how to trust express emotion without being judged and more importantly how to love and forgive I have no fear no anger I write poetry now where before I could not even write my name I cry at movies and do not care what people think Slowly I was able to learn to feel all over again The learning and feelings were rapidly expanding and I would literally feel brain zaps then one night at 3 00AM it all came together and I was jumping for joy and felt like I was in a state of bliss My Journey of Depression Adaptation Ascension had completed Depression is not because your daddy did not hug you or you did too many drugs or alcohol Now this is new research on Depression as a form of Adaption to prepare you for the next phase of your life but now it s 10 times better because I have no filters on my emotions and I literally get emotional with everything and it feels awesome and I feel alive I used to think at 56 my life was over now I feel like it as just begun When I read the Science Daily research on Rumination and
