Its something I had heard many times from many people who one would think should care. I could see it making that spiral swirl faster. Some just don't grasp it cuz it isn't personel to them. Until it is to late. Why I didn't give the fuck bag the response he so gleefully desired.

today marks 4 years to the day that we lost a car guy named john lanzone{from long island ny} to his own demons..... he overdosed on pills after he felt life became too much of a roller coaster to handle-and he was one of my best friends


todays rough on me-because yesterday was my birthday,and you are supposed to celebrate life-and today im working on my car missing my old car buddy badly.....

please if you feel things are so bad just talk to someone---its never bad enough to leave behind such pain and hurt for the people who did and do love you very much


r.i.p flip-and today r.i.p john lanzone


us car guys often feel like superman but were all skin and blood-feelings and pain

People also need to be able to see changes in their friends and not be afraid to say something to them, tell them they care, tell them they love them. The mental state some people reach to get to the point where taking their own life is also the same point where going to ask for help is not even a thought in their head.

This same situation effected our family when when of my fathers best friends decided to make the choice that he thought would be best for his family.

I'm 51 years old so it's getting to the point in life where the parents and older relatives of our friends are beginning to pass away. It's in these times that we show our friends how we feel about them and it really shouldn't take something like that to bring out the true depth of your friendship.

Yeah, to some I'm a big pussy and must be gay to say that I love some of the guys I know, but a lot of these guys are like my brothers and would be effected just as negatively at their loss.

Paulie you are so right. Some of my friends are more like family to me than my own brothers are. I guess there are people who still don't get that sometimes when people are talking to them they are really expecting the other party to actually be listening. And I guess that those on here who are bashing people or this thread are those who never listen to their friends, are the ones who always expect help and never give it in return and, when it comes right down to it, are the ones who don't give a shit about anyone but themselves. God forbid they get put in a tough situation and need a friend. It's the good people, that care and give a shit that will run to these people to help. But it's the good guy, who feels alone and has demons that will never ask for help, that ends up getting bashed. The pain of depression never goes away until the one in pain goes away. Depression never ends until you die. Unfortunately some can't wait for it to come naturally because it can become too much. Sure they leave behind pain, but they feel the pain that created everyday far outweighted the pain they left. Then the hero's all run to the funeral and say he was my best friend. How well did you know this "best friend"? Apparently not that well. I heard something the other day that took me back:

"When someone dies, you don't loose them all at once, you loose them a little piece at a time. Like when their mail stops coming or you forget their laugh or the sound of their voice. Because the memory is always there, it just gets smaller and smaller with every passing day." To those who can't handle it, find someone, anyone to talk to, even if it's no one you know but someone who'll listen. To those who want to bash people who can't deal with their demons or have a tough time, may we suggest you just move on with your mouth closed, and hope you never really need a true friend to talk to.

Good posts. Wish I'd had someone who noticed all the signs before I tried doing it. The thing about depression is at least for me, is that I always turned inwards. Seeking help never really crossed my mind. It's kinda like I have blinders on at times.

I can agree with ya on this. I go inwards as I don't want to hear all the bullshit responses I have gotten in the past. I truly believe people are to self absorbed to care about anyone else. Until its to late. Then they are more self absorbed into their own saddness. Not everybody but most. I've been burned by shit comments so often. Even when it is offered I refuse because I believe or know it will fall on deaf ears. Or ill be lauged at behind my back for it. Get strange looks from people from then on. So I sit quietly in my inward world in so much pain. That there just is not anyone I can turn to.


I'm trying share just how deep the hurt can be for most.

Depression sucks. Plain and simple. I am now 40 and have dealt with it since I was 13. I deal with mine by holding everything in and not letting anyone know anything is wrong. If not for my kids I am sure I would have done something more stupid than I normally do. For me I think of my family and kids and what they would do without me in their life and it makes me even sadder thinking about it. I always find a way to pull myself back up and overcome. Not everyone is like that though and some things you can't overcome. I had a friend 4 years ago that I had known for 17 years and we were tight that had hung himself in his barn because he couldn't deal with what he was going through. At the time it came as a shock to me because I was at his house on Sunday talking shit about our cars like we always did and then I got a call Monday at 4pm that he was dead. It really messed me up ended up costing me my job, went into a self destruct mode, you know the drill. Anyway I found out that he had terminal cancer and had hide it from everyone including his wife up until the morning he killed himself. He told his wife before she left for work and said that they would talk about it more when she got home from work. Well that never came. The thing that hurt me the most I think was the fact that the youngest of his 6 kids found him hanging in the barn. I have known these kids since they were babies and it tore me up inside that they had to deal with it. I did what I could for them and his wife and still miss him to this day.

So all I am saying is always think how things you do will affect others in your life with you there and without you there. Personally I would rather spend as much time with my family and friends as I could until I wasn't able to hang on any longer.

I agree turbofreek most people just pay lip service to this issue before and after, I compare it to most peoples stance on abortion, they get indignant about it but after a kid is born and is brought up in poverty surrounded by crime it's not " their " problem.
Having dealt with this problem for over thirty years I've spent a lot of time trying to understand what makes me feel this way .Logically it doesn't make sense, I know I have it better than 99% of the people who have ever lived, that's what makes depression so hard to understand for most it makes no sense. The best way I can describe whats its like to someone that hasn't ever dealt with it is, most people especially competitive people chase that euphoric feeling of winning, you know the one you get when you win the big race, game ect, basically when you get recognition for you accomplishments from your peers and or complete strangers. Depression is the exact opposite, when people turn their backs on you, or seem as if they could care less it's like a poison and just drives you inward. The feeling that your alone part of it is the worst and just feeds on itself.
I've learned to deal with it over time and very few people I know have any idea I've had these problems. Im not ashamed or embarrassed at all and definitely don't feel like a " pussy " as I've lived through something that has taken out a lot of bad MFers. Good luck to all others dealing with this and get out and be around people, the best relief there is for this problem.

Gary you hit it square on the head.

I am a hugely competitive person. Life is no different to me than sports. I want to win at all times but not at any cost. Probably why I'm better now than I was before. My son makes me feel needed and wanted. That keeps me going every day. I hope I never lose that cuz I have nothing else to look forward to curently. I take it one day at a time now. Its easier to deal with it all and not get overwhelmed. I thank jake at jakesperformance for that bit of advice. Not to take so much so personal allthe time and enjoy it.

why does everyone keep bringing up talking to someone as if it's an answer? I dont know what the answer is and agree this is a real issue but most people dont understand what your going through, the only ones that do are the ones who have gone through the same thing but there is still no answer, just an I been there witch is no real help. Its not like you just need a hug its a whole mental mind fuck. I dont have answer just throwing out an observation.

If this thread helps one person or helps someone understand this problem it atleast brings a slight purpose to the tragic loss, even if you do have to wade through some idiots.

Good point Gary. Do you think that maybe this is why some big stars/famous people crash and burn? Because of who they are or what they've done they've lost soooo much? Win is the only thing, but you can only win so often. Be the best when you are on stage or in the public eye. But what about the other 22 hours a day? When the only people they have to shine for are themselves and their demons. We sometimes set our own goals and ways to please or look good to our peers and friends, family, and we often set them very high. But that is short lived daily or weekly. What happens the rest of the time? That is when depressions or one's demons haunt. I think the people who can deal with it are brave, even the one's who have a time dealing with it. It's no different than someone dying "doing what they loved to do". Suicide is someone dying getting away from what they hated. I guess saying "talk about it" maybe the wrong thing to say. Maybe we should be saying reach out. I think that friends and family just being there, not necessarily talking to you, but just being around out of love for all of you is maybe the answer. I feel for you and your demons Gary, keep the power in you to move forward, and not go away. Respect of others who feel your pain can go along way and your telling you story, and others telling theirs, will help you and others cope a little easier.

Again with all do respect to Flip and his loved ones, maybe out of this tragedy, his passing will save one, or help many. All this has helped me. RIP Flip, and thanks.
