Single Status Update
It's one of those status updates, but I'm feeling that "I can't take this anymore longer" is getting way too common in my life. I don't don't know how to explain this thing, because everything is mixed in very bad way and I don't where I could start. I'm trying to stay strong and live my life as usual, push myself more into activities that I like, so I won't think about myself in negative way. But even my favorite activities don't make me happy anymore. I don't know, if I should continue, because nobody likes depressed people and I'm afraid that I'm one of them.

1.) We will have to agree to disagree here. The mind is something clinical psychologists may not fully understand, but they've explored the "territory" quite a bit more than you make it sound.
And besides, if I were to look for somebody who could help me develop a healthier thinking pattern better than friends can, I surely would pay for such a service, instead of beating around the bush while getting molly-cuddled by friends who lack the means to understand the overarching problems. Talking to friends is fine, but taking care of symptoms doesn't mean taking care of their cause at the same time. Like I said: I don't know if what I have to offer is what somebody else needs, and that's the best way to think about it, imo.
I will say though that "professionals" who do nothing more than hand out "happy-pills" are something I take with a grain of salt.
2.) Without Freud most of the recent discoveries would not have been made. Many of his theories aren't fundamentally wrong either, by the way. They needed to get improved on for sure.
3.) If what you advocate here is the idea of a "god of the gaps", which means putting god everywhere where science has not yet reached, then get ready to get that undone, and I say that as a highly religious person, by the way.
If thoughts and behaviour-patterns were physical, we wouldn't need limbs and "organs" to manifest these "ideas" in the physical world. Science already figured out that there's a non physical component to humans and the way they think/perceive, that's why people don't do lobotomies anymore, unless they've been living under a rock.
