    Its less I want to kill myself or I'm drowning in angst and pain and more I feel numb and why aren't I happy? Unlike in the movies, I'm not actually sad. Sadness is more of an inevitability thanks to how hard it is to actually be happy.

    I wake up sometimes and lie still for hours in my bed unable to move and sometimes I go through the day and no depression. Anger usually does the trick. I focus on something that makes me really mad and sometimes punch the wall untill the pain and adrenaline override the numb feeling.
    Go see a doctor, tell them how you're feeling. Depression is wearing. Managable is just a nice way of saying "Im too depressed to attempt resolving this issue, I dont see the point". Seriously, I know its hard , but just take that first proactive step, it gets easier after that.

    visit your doctor. sometimes a short course of medication will get you out of your rut.
    go to bed the same time every night. read if you cant sleep, and get up when you wake up in the morning (routine), dont roll over and go back to sleep.
    only use your bedroom for sleep if you have the choice, that way you associate the room with sleep and nothing else (im guessing you are single).

    if you suffer from depression and associated insomnia then a trip to the doc is your best option. you wont get locked up

    I thought it meant "Quit Fucking Talking".

    Apologies for my mis-understanding. My apology to Dice. Sorry, mate.
    I though QFT was "Quite Fucking True". Close enough to quoted for truth. lol. Either way, you are right, depression isn't to be fooled around with.

    I had a brother who tried to deal with his anxiety, and depression on his own. He made it 44 years without real help... He would be 45 now, if he had gotten help, most likely.

    Thatīs a long shot. One could also argue that sleeping-problems lead to depression. (Human) psychology is so damned complex that you canīt diagnose such things based on a few posts. Furhtermore, depression is a very unclearly defined term without much practical use in psychotherapy.

    Also, getting rid of a chronic depression is much easier said than done. Although your post was certainly well meant, it is not much more helpful than to say "do the right things to overcome your problems and live happily ever after": tautological true and totally useless unless you define what those "right things" are.

    P.S.: You might want to google "thread necromancy".

    P.P.S.: welcome to the forum

    Avoid taking naps in day timing and if you smoke or drink, avoid them. Workout regularly and follow balanced meal plans.

    I get about 6 hours tops. I just can't seem to get to sleep. I go to bed and just lay there for about an hour before I fall asleep and when I do fall asleep I tend to wake up in mid-sleep(about three hours in).

    Have you guys experienced anything similar?
    I've always had sleeping trouble, regardless of whether I was heavily exercising or sedentary at the time. Six hours would be my max as well. I have tried many things, so I can give you some dos and dont's from my own experience:

    Dont:
    1). Sleeping pills (unless your sleeping issues are short term). Otherwise before you know it, you wont be able to sleep without them. Doctors here will usually only prescribe ten days worth at max for this very reason.

    2). Drop half a hip flask of something an hour or so before bed. Not a good plan. Same issues as the above, but with potentially more serious ramifications.

    Do:
    1). Create a separation between your home (sleeping place) and other aspects of life. I have found that this works really well. I never go straight home from work. When I was still in training, I never went straight home from training at night.
    I go to a park or similar place and read the paper, or a book, or make notes about whatever game I'm programming (a hobby of mine, not work related) for half an hour to an hour. I find that this creates a mental separation between the activities of the day and home.
    If I don't do this, I think about work constantly at home, I even dream about it (these are often not pleasant dreams). Set yourself a separation between activity routine like this. It doesn't have to be sitting in park reading something. It can be anything that mentally separates that day activity space from your home and sleeping environment.

    2). Okay, this one I find very effective but I am skeptical of it from a health standpoint. There was some mention on a news website a while back about the 4-7-8 breathing technique to facilitate sleep. I have tried it and still use it on occasions. Steps as follows:
    A). Exhale completely
    B). Inhale very slowly through your nose for a slooow four count
    C). Hold your breath for a sloooow count of seven
    D). Slowly, continuously exhale for a sloooow eight count through your mouth

    The key is the ratio and the fact that these are very slow counts. Plus side: This usually makes me fall asleep within a few minutes. Downside? The odd light giddiness I feel doing it is disturbingly similar to that which one experiences when one is getting a less than ideal supply of oxygen to the brain. In a nutshell: This does work, but I suspect it works through a degree of oxygen deprivation. I only use this method if I am having a nastier than usual insomniac time and if I have an important engagement the next day.
