Brothers and sisters, I am having a hell of a time with some depression. Theres no need fir it. A chemical imbalance ive never been able to fix. Antidepressants and I are bit friends. I ask a favor. Share with me your good things, your bad things, or whatever you need or want to talk about. My iron family has always been the ones I turned to in times of need. Ive never been let down and for that I am grateful.

As a medical professional I wouldn't kill myself. No sooner had I posted this than a beautiful intelligent educated woman got back with me. We have been conversing. She said she has two kids. If I want to be with her, they are part if the package. Ill have a decision for her tomorrow. Look up NSI-189. I might try that for depression

My advice to anyone who suffers chronic major depression: If you don’t have kids, go ahead and off yourself. It doesn’t get better and once you do have kids you’re pretty much trapped here.
Yeah or try tricyclic antidepressant like Flexiril and gabapentin? Throw some THC in there and if you were in category one but now are in category two.. this path and almost daily exercise/weights can lift depression enough with will power you might not mess up your little ones..

Well ****, I think you just solved the suicide crisis affecting our veterans.

Bro, this might work for run-of-the-mill depression, but for people who have suffered life-long major depression your “solution” is a joke. I’m not going to go into details, but Flexeril isn’t even an antidepressant, it’s a muscle relaxant that happens to have a tricyclic structure, and many, many people get *severe* anxiety and panic attacks from THC. Not to mention that there is profound comorbidity between major depression and chronic, especially degenerative pain conditions. Some of us are no longer physically able to perform any significant exercise.

But what the **** do I know?
Gee I don't know what you know, but my depression has both been life long and pretty debilitating.. suicide is always on mind. I didn't need PTSD to get it and docs gave me every antidepressant for the past 30 years, I refused most until a doc at Kaiser medical. Yeah, I too passed O-chem in college too, Flexiril tricyclic benefit is real and I know the muscle relaxant effect as I have sports injury so it's helpful both ways.

But hey what I said is a joke. Perhaps you have very extreme depression? This is what allows me to get by, sorry it is not up to your standards!

Besides you were replying to OP, it was more to him anyway...

I found a pattern in myself recently. Ill stop looking at porn a couple weeks or longer, the longest I went without looking at porn was four months. Anyways, when a stressful event comes up, like meeting on a date for the first time, or going out socially to night venues with friends, I turned to porn. It seems to be a coping mechanism for excitement when life is boring, not getting laid, even when Ive gotten laid, Ive watched porn the same night.

I dont know if its true, porn has the same reward chemical changes as any addiction. You look at it and it fixes everything temporary. Then you go without it, and get bored, them porn addiction chemicals want their feeding and they're not getting it so that is why that happens. Some guys say it takes a good six months to get good at not looking at porn. Some have even claimed to not looking at porn in years .

Currently Im getting ready for a competition so doing a lot of cardio helps a lot of that time.

You battling some bad depression bro?

Do you know when it all started? Just to see if we can link a trigger.

I was recently battling some anxiety and depression myself. (Still am but far more manageable) I went to the Doctors and was put on Prozac. In my honest opinion. Try stay away from SSRI's. Do they work? Yes and No. I did get a little relief from them but i just felt numb. Felt like my homour was melting away and i was becoming very unsociable. I ended up just tapering off them. Felt rough for a while but it balanced out.

Can i ask? Do you suffer any digestive issues? Have you ever took AntiBiotics? I know... Sounds strange but.. I have been recently focusing ALL my attention on healing my gut. Our microbiome (Gut Bacteria... Probiotics) is so important for overall mental clarity. A poor gut balance causes some serious brain issues.. Anxiety Depression Brain Fog lethargy etc etc.. Sound familiar? If you have used Antibiotics in the past i would honestly focus on doing a gut cleanse. Have a look at it and just have a good read. Trust me i have been on a cleanse for about 2+ weeks and i am starting to feel alot better. My Anxiety at the end up was awful.. Was destroying my relationship and work life. Now i am starting to feel happy again. I have more energy. Just feel a better person (I took Tetracycline Antibiotics for 3 months about 2 years ago and it had destroyed my gut bacteria.. Wa ms a down hill process since then)

If you want me to write you a gut cleanse protocol... Just message me

Also.. Try incorporate some fatty fish into your diet or supplement with EPA DHA. Such a forgotten nutrient and very rarely mentioned and its so beneficial for overall brain health. Can pick up a decent Cod Liver Oil supplement for a decent price. Worth it

Best of luck bro.. Times will get better

Thank you, I was born with anxiety and depression. It didn't show up much until I was about 10. Then I suffered for decades until I went to my own doctor. He diagnosed me and then we started running the gambit on everything when I was 32. The only thing that worked was Wellbutrin. Ive come off of it a fourth time. Id get depersonalization problems, memory issues, and aggression. I have ptsd and it made it very bad.

Depression slammed home sometime a couple days ago. I dont drink or anything and yet there it is. Trying to drag me down. Its debilitating in ways I cant even describe. Im hoping some of this newer stuff will work. Nsi-189 or microdoses of ketamine or psilocybin.

Years ago I was going through a bad stretch of life. I was always happy prior to then terribly saddened. Never had money worries, then considering crime due to debt. Always blessed with impressive energy and health and then listless and feeling terribly ill and no one knew what was wrong with me. I thought I was going to die. I would lie prostrate in bed in pain and fog. I prayed as I have never prayed to get better. Not to let me die instead to let me fight and win. And I did and overcame all the above.

A humbling lesson in life that has made me a better person.

My advice to anyone who suffers chronic major depression: If you don’t have kids, go ahead and off yourself. It doesn’t get better and once you do have kids you’re pretty much trapped here, unless you’re willing to ruin the lives of your children, in which case you’re a selfish piece of **** who should have turned to alcoholism and/or opioid addiction. Having an addict for a parent is better than having one who suicides.

One of my biggest regrets was not doing it in 2008 when I was childless and completely ready to go. Things don’t ever get better the older you get, they become exponentially worse.
Not even sure what to say about this steaming pile of **** post. So I'll just report it.

First regarding the above...Just WOW. I did not see that response. Must have been deleted.

I will tell you more. Years after my experience I had a female colleague who underwent a traumatic event. She went down into the deepest hole. Considered suicide. A small group of us helped and never gave up on her. The process took years. She is back to her old self now-sharp, happy, energetic. Events like this add a mystic level of humbleness and wisdom to a person. One appreciates life much more than previously.
