Don't regret posting, please. It is good to vent--to put it out there so it just doesn't sit and cook.

I grew up with my father being horribly depressed. After his first heart attack, he got on meds and was a changed person.

I carried around my own depression for years, and finally broke down and saw a doc and got on meds. It took a while, I don't have any side effects, and on most days I feel better.

There were many days when I sat with my face in my hands, though.

Ok that one nearly made me shoot pepsi out my nose. You are not a stereotypical guy since you knit in truck stops (well at least that is how I see you) but if you want to be macho I guess the guy thing is to go hit something. How about punching your seats in your truck. Technically it is hitting and I think they will have enough give that you won't damage your hand. I am trying to think like a guy but I am afraid on the benadryl I am not thinking much at all.

Actually hitting is how I dealt with it for years, but it was usually some other guy's skull I was hitting (not always though, I once put my fist through a cinder block wall). Arthritis is starting to set into my hands as a result of beating them against other people's heads over the years. I'm trying to turn over that new leaf as that's not the person I want to be.

Ok it may sound funny but here is what I do when I feel the need to whack a wall (I can't my figers dislocate to easily) I buy a box of Kleenex and throw them one at a time. Not too messy and nothing gets damaged. YOu can throw as hard as you want. Just a thought.

I did my share of hitting, but the things that helped me the most when I was going through bad moments were writing, drawing and acting.

Ever tried keeping a journal? Offline, hehe. It doesn't matter what you write in it, just write. Train of thought. At some point you'll start letting out the stuff that's in you.
Acting was a good tool too. Specially when we had improvs. Oooooo vulgar improvs.......yuuuumy, I miss those days. Our director didn't know what hit him when asked us to try acting vulgar.
