    Was told by doctor at 18 I had Endogenous Depression . So Prozac and related friends for the next 20 or so years were the best thing I ever did. How anyone is not depressed is and always will be a mystery to me. Take heart in the fact that stupid people are rarely depressed. Just keep in mind it will not be forever or if it is, it is manageable by drugs/therapy/lifestyle etc. the older I get the more I couldn't care less about other people which helps greatly. Accept yourself as not a cheery happy go lucky clown, revel in your dark side. oh yeah and depressed people couldn't give a flying fu** about making or achieving goals.

    As an INTJ I want independency (and thus doing things myself) and I like solving problems. I put these together to approach the problem. I learned of myself - why I was depressed, why I was avoiding dealing with my problems, why I had problems, why I would think a certain way, so on and so forth. I also started taking care of my problems, because avoiding my problems was what was making me depressed.

    Action is what matters.

    So the bottom line is...

    You'll only depress an INTJ by chaining him/her, which largely reduces the results produced by said INTJ in any matter, thus backfiring your plan to control him to your wish. So INTJ depression is an INTJ mechanism against control and authoritarianism.

    I've felt into a deep one in the half of the summer. I'm better now, but something has changed, I'm not the same person.
    I've reached a place where I was disgusted of myself, so I just wanted to get out of it. I've talked about it here a little, with a very understanding person, and with some people later on, in real life. I started taking less meds and then no meds at all.

    Suddenly stopping meds is too hard and maybe stupid, so you can lessen the dose.

    Time heals a little too.

    Those heeled me a bit, better than nothing, right?

    Mostly following the list of symptoms of depression to a tee.
    I stopped having a desire to do anything, even things I had previously enjoyed.
    I stopped eating, stopped sleeping.
    I stopped talking to my peers, kept my head down at work.
    I felt so empty, like there was nothing to look forward to anymore, and I was stuck in some sort of limbo.
    I got rushes of nausea, and felt as if inside me there was some big black empty pit.

    My teachers at school began to notice a change in my behavior, my parents were contacted, I was told how, "I have so much potential." and "I hate seeing you like this." and "I'm always here to help, or to talk too."

    So I knew this whole depression thing was setting in. Could feel it everyday when I woke up. Every night when I couldn't fall asleep.

    I wished I could have changed something, I wished there was a REASON that I was depressed. There was nothing, there was a situation, that was the catalyst in triggering the depression, but at this point, there is no specific problem to fix.

    Now I am on antidepressants. A low dose, that I have to take everyday and effects will take a few weeks to being working, and I take sleeping medication for my insomnia. Which both, have thus far proven to have no effects at all.

    I've been desperately trying to take this one day at a time. To not think too far into the future. To enjoy something while it is happening, but it's difficult.

    Every single time, someone asks to hang out, I just want to say no. I don't want to see anyone, and people think I'm bailing, cancelling all the time, but I just want to be alone, until I get better.

    I've talked to therapists, and psychologists before. Never helped.
    Now my first psychiatrist.

    Struggles with depression, coping, results?
    Read Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Read Ecce Homo. Read Philosophy in general.

    That's 100% right. It is even stronger when You are 8.

    I don't think I have hit rock-bottom with depression, but I do see that I get depressed very easily and more often. Personally, college has been a pain in the arse since my career and reputation are on the line. Since I'm a bit of a perfectionist (not an extreme one...I just know I'm capable of doing good work and get upset when I achieve below my standards), I'm usually admittedly disappointed with myself...such as these days since I'm not going to be on time for my career (medicine).

    I personally get out my temporary depression by just plowing through my work and maybe indulging in quick pleasures (i.e. buying books, eating a good meal) during breaks. I'm aware that this isn't the most logical way of doing things and that it isn't the best way of dealing with this...but it's a decent stopper for now...
