Thread: False Emotion Disorder **STRONG AB/SU Triggers**

  1. #31
    I'd compare it to working out. If you work out for years and become muscular, you don't go back to being a 98-pound weakling the moment you stop. If you stopped for a month you probably still wouldn't be, but you would gradually go back to what your normal body shape was. It takes time for it to reverse itself.

    And it's one of those things where you might not want to do it that day, but you know you'll feel worse if you don't and once you start doing it you feel better, but you're making it feel a little bit worse for next time.

    I planned on taking that 3 months off last July until I came up with this. I was sitting on the porch all summer. But the chair was terrible. One of those white stackable ones. It was just making matters worse. But I wouldn't know it for a while because when I would sit in it I would feel better at first because it's stretching the muscles it's hurting (like working out), but over time it just got worse and worse as those muscles became more stressed out (and more inflamed/bigger over time).

Right now, I am chronically depressed, and I believe it would take 3 months of me doing next to nothing to get rid of it.

    Angie,

    I don't think I have ever said that my theory is the only reason. And only that it is a possibility that this could be causing it for you. I believe it causes it for me. And I think the blurbs about forward head posture is at least some back up from the science community that some believe that there is a physical connection to depression. And, regardless if it is physical or mental depression, it's still depression. It's how you got there that's different. And, in fact, I would say that physical depression is actually worse than mental depression because there is no obvious reason for it. I once wrote 'I wish something was really wrong, right now, so everything else wasn't.' and that's because it just starts throwing everything at you, trying to fix it mentally but it's not going to work.
    Im sorry if this seems blunt but can you not see that the trauma you suffered in your childhood is far, far more likely to be a cause of your depression than your posture? Do you not think you could be using this theory so you don’t have to deal with how the abuse affected you?

    And pretty much every expert there is does not advocate ‘doing next to nothing’ as a valid treatment for depression. Exercise is known to increase the ‘happy’ hormones and significantly improves depression symptoms.

    Ken, I believe you really need to talk to your doctor about what’s going on, all of it.

    Just a note, Ken, we try not to say that one person’s depression is worse than someone else - how everybody here is feeling has just as much an impact on their lives as anyone else’s does.

    I have to say that I totally agree with Paula. Have you ever had therapy about the large amount of abuse you've suffered?
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    Ken I am copying your reply to here so I can reply

    You're making an assumption that its a possibility it could be causing it for me and others. Now searching for your "theory" and it is only a theory most of the things that come up are for chiropractors, these have nothing to do with mental health.

    Why are you so intent on pushing this theory when you won't show a proven source for it to us?

    Over the years I’ve had quite a few episodes of depression. I played hockey regularly from I was 12 until I was 36. I exercised a lot more then than I am now and can definitely say it helped me. I walk the dog now instead of running and playing hockey and that helps me.

    As for one type of depression being worse than another, that’s not something I can agree with. How can it be worse for one person? Because I had a crap childhood and my friend didn’t does that mean that my depression is worse than hers?

    I’m not discounting your theory but I’m finding it difficult to get my head round it. You’ve given very little evidence to back it up.

    Angie,

    I am not pushing anything, I am offering it as possible help. I have posted it once and replied reasonably to every response.

    And, it's not like I came on here and said pills are a waste of time and psychiatrists are, too, and science is wrong and my theory is the answer to everyone's problems and if you don't listen to me, you'll never be better.

    And, if I am right and the chiropractors are right, then chiropractors do have something to do with mental health.

    And I am the source for this theory. Do you want a DNA sample as proof? Sheesh.

    Allalone and Paula,

    Well, I know that my depression is worse at times than at others.

    And all that trauma in my childhood is only an issue if I'm thinking about it. That's what I am saying is the problem with physical depression. It's making me think about it. It's presenting it to my conscience as a possible reason for why I am feeling the way I do.

    If I am having a rage day, this might all be brought to the surface (I think I mentioned that one job is one-stop shopping and I usually just rage against that). I would be enraged by it all. But, if I went to these memories on purpose and thought about them, I wouldn't be enraged. I am more forgiving normally than that. I'd make excuses in my mind for my father (it was a different time / he might have been gay himself etc) and shoulder some of the blame for my actions and putting it more into context and realize that I don't remember everything and what I have forgotten might put everything in a different light. I'm not as forgiving when I feel enraged and it's just throwing at me things that enrage me. And I think the brain is throwing anything unresolved that might be the problem for how you're feeling, if nothing is happening now that's got you enraged. It's trying to help you solve a physical feeling but it's not going to do it with thoughts and could be making matters worse if you act upon your reactions from what you're thinking.

    Sorry, I don't think you've directly answered my questions.... So I'm putting them here to ask again...

    I think having loads of thoughts flood your head when you are not busy is something that a lot of people can relate to, but instead of thinking that it's in your face first (which I'm struggling with as a concept) maybe it IS a real thing and not a false emotion at all? Have you tried other techniques such as meditation or mindfulness?

    Maybe it's about a balance, not an all or nothing approach?

    Do you know whether you had a trigger for the way that you were feeling - apart from moving classrooms each lesson? Do you live with others? Do you socialise? Eat properly? Drink alcohol? Take any other medication?

    ADMIN NOTE: As an important aside, I'm going to ask you to be mindful of the way that some of what you have said may come across. Making comments like Jaq not being open minded, asking Angie if she wanted a DNA sample etc just aren't something I'm happy to allow on here. Please remember that the team members are giving up their time to help me to run this place - somewhere that has meaning and importance to so many others.
    You have belittled the effect that abuse and the horrors of living through those kind of experiences can have on people by completely ignoring that with regard to your own mental health.
    Suggesting that depression may not be real and "just in your face" is against what I stand for. It's so hard for so many to ask for help with their mental health and to suggest that it may be a "false emotion" really isn't something that I'm happy for that message to be something I'm seen to promote.
    I am not intending to "mute you", but I am standing up for what I believe and what I promote here and on the facebook page. I have worked very hard to get the the reputation that I have built up over the years and actually now being recommended by Mental Health Professionals..
    We have asked repeatedly for more research to back up what you are saying, but you have not got anything to show, I've done some research and can't find a shred of evidence to back up your claims/theories. Maybe you're onto the route cause and can cure depression - that'd be amazing and I'd be happy to eat humble pie... However I can't see that happening.

    I am going to close this thread now and ask that you do not start any more regarding this theory. Thank you.
