Yes successful people have it too. I'm doing very well myself house paid for, 4 cars, 2 investment property, good retirement ahead of me, a cool business And yes I have depression. I m currently taking prescribed meds... What makes me feel good are successes and accomplishments.
I feel you man. At 22, I've accomplished a lot and I'm in line for a lot more but it doesn't make me happy..
And I know man. I need to stop with the alcohol and pain killers.
When I hear people talk about being "alcoholics" because they drink on the weekends, every weekend I laugh.
I was at a point where I was drinking Half of a 5th AT LEAST, 5 days a week.
And the only reason why I didn't drink 7 days a week was because I didn't want to become an alcoholic.
I mean, I would be 3 hours into my shift and start thinking "I need a drink"
And I'm taking, drinking vodka and whisky straight. No chaser.
By myself.. Not at a bar, or club or with anyone.
Just in my room.. Blacking out.
Then I started with vicodins. Started taking 2 or 3 to feel "good"..
Then I found out about "norcos" which are 10mg hydrocondone
In about 6 hours, I've taken up to 30. That's 300 mg..
Since then, I've stopped the drinking. Ive gained a lot of weight drinking and the hang overs and my skin took a toll.
The pills I've started using only on weekends and try to little by little lower my intake..
But it's what keeps me from feeling "depressed"
