    My wife has gotten used to this and, since I sleep on my back its no big deal. I'm "punching" or "kicking" towards the ceiling.

    So one night, as I was falling asleep, I dreamt the guy charged me. So I sidestepped. Now, I'm not sure how I sidestepped while laying flat on my back and not being able to push off the floor, but I almost bumped my wife out of bed.

    Go see a doctor. They have all these different medicines for depression, which is a medical condition. If you had diabetes, you'd go see a doctor, right? Drinking booze will only compound the problem. Don't listen to a bunch of guys on the web. A little Anecdote- I knew a guy that was real macho, and used to say "you're your own best psychologist". He got into "Roids and selling Coke, and blew his own head off in a Safeway parking lot.

    after i ran a marathon, i decided to take a month off of training and i most certainly fell into a funk. as was mentioned before, excercise releases endorphins which make you feel better. most drugs designed to fight depression block the uptake of serotonin. a lack of serotonin in the brain can cause irritability, stress, etc. excercise can increase levels of serotonin, which has the same effect - i believe it is not as pronouced though. there are many psychologists who are now utilizing regular excercise in their treatments for people suffering from depression.

    i am extremely wary of the drugs though. i have two family members who take them, and they are making no attempts to find the underlying cause of their depression and to work towards getting off of them. the medical profession does not fully understand all the long term effects of the drugs nor fully understand why they work (the relationship between serotinin and depression). i went through a bout with depression a few years ago and went against the advice of a psychologist and used cognitive behavioral therapy rather than drugs and though it took more effort and time, i now have the tools at my disposal for fighting depression.

    take it seriously, but dont rush to medicate yourself. there are sometimes other alternatives.

    You have a point, though some people can go to a fucked up therapist, and have even more damage done. At the end of the day medicine can only help so much. Still, I'd go see a doctor, first.

    Thats like a step by step guide to becoming an alcoholic. Find something else you can do to make you happy eg seeing friends.

    there is nothing in this world like an ice cold beer at the end of a rough day. and medical science says that it's good for you. the way i see it, if one beer is good, 6 is better, and 12 is great!

    I agree, SSRI's are over-prescribed these days. A person really needs the advice of a qualified mental health professional. I would recommend a MD who is trained in CBT techniques, rather than a psychologist. Some people really do need medication, though. It depends on the severity of the depression. I have been hospitalised in my darkest days and without the benefit of meds, things may have ended in a very ugly way.

    Does anyone else find this funny?

    So the treatment for OCD is to go OCD on working out? Right......

    Crack can be cheap at least.

    Why the layoff from training? What happened to the Judo place?
