How does /b/ deal with crippling depression, no friends and suicidal thoughts. I'm out of weed so that's out of the question.
Mostly just ignore suicidal thoughts, they're just stupid and intrusive thoughts, not really mine.
Don't care about friends at all. Never been particularly social and I don't miss them. If I really wanted friends I'd go out of my way to make them, but most of the time I find them to be way needier than me. Also I have a wife that is my best friend so I think that helps.
For depression I take tianeptine sulfate 12.5mg 3x a day. You can get it online. It helps a lot.
What really cures my depression is eating healthy foods (lots of veggies and fruit) and exercising 30min+ every day. But it's hard to get back in the habit when I fall out of it. Fuck I feel good when I'm doing it though. Been a few weeks out of the habit now though and have been getting progressively more down in my thoughts.
I do it hitting the gym and visualizing the weights as the heavy depression y want to overcome, going even at 7 am on winter, a lonely challenge imposed by myself, oh, and using my horrible thoughts as a way of gallows humor at college, let's you get some 2nd class friends, nothing permanent or true but helps to get by
Yep. 100% agree with this. Basically gave away 4 years of my life to weed/depression. I don't regret it or anything like that, I just see in retrospect that it was dumb of me.
Fuck off no it doesn't. Weed is way more helpful than any other medication I've been put on to deal with my mental problems.
The thing about weed is, at least in my experience, it doesn't help directly, but it made me realize I needed to rethink my priorities in life and actually make changes rather than just wollow and hope my meds would fix everything.
Go for walks anon. Physical exercise and sunlight will help combat the depression. And just being outdoors will help you as well.
Try to do something creative to deal with the suicidal thoughts. Poetry, writing, art, music making, anything.
Friends? Maybe try /soc/? Not really sure there. If you're in school then you still have a great infrastructure for that.
I go to the gym almost daily just have no one to go with and it makes me even more sad. I'm currently living in a shelter not of my own cause but because I'm still dependent on a family member that couldn't get work at his Union job.
Also try to see a therapist.
Having someone to talk to about this stuff can help. And there are different types of therapy as well. I'd suggest some form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
And a therapist can send you to someone who can prescribe anti-depresents which may also help.
Everyone's different. When I was depressed and smoking a lot of weed, getting high was just the way to cure my boredom with life without actually doing anything. Basically I was still anhedonic as fuck.. but with weed I was okay with it.
I mean it's better than killing yourself and I'm sure for some people weed works like an antidepressant and lets them make their life worth living, but for some people it's just an easy way to tolerate a shitty life.
I've been considering going vegan for a while but I don't buy the food and don't want to explain to the person I'm dependant on why I only want to eat vegan as they won't be accepting of it.
You might be able to find something else online.
A community of people who are into the same stuff as you.
I like to visit /toy/ and /m/. They're somewhat small boards and people there are actually willing to have conversations instead of troll each other most of the time.
jesus kid stop smoking that shit that literally is where your problem lies
don't become me
get out the fucking house
find someone that makes you laugh make them laugh
don't become a 43year old fat virgin
Man, your situation sucks bro. I hope you feel better when shit gets better. Anything you can do to help your situation? Guessing your still in high school so moving out and getting a job isn't really an option.
Keep going to the gym bro, Older you will be glad you did. If there's nothing you can do about your sitatuation, just keep getting by until the situation improves or you're old enough to do shit yourself.
Working out works wonders to counteract my extreme depression and anxiety, mostly weight lifting due to the boost in self confidence from instant visible results. Almost as good as drugs.
I don't know about you but I just use my depression as an excuse to throw myself at whatever feels good, usually drugs, with no fear of consequences. When every second is fear, anxiety, depression, and pain, anything at all is better. It doesn't get better, nothing will help besides your and my imminent demise. True happiness is a myth perpetuated by those of us who are a bit better at faking.
Who knows maybe I'm just bitter because I'm out of pot and Xanax for a few days.
the answer is buttplugs, every single succesfull person, i can guarantee you every CEO of every billion dollar company to presidents of great nations, litterary and musical geniusses have this in common. at their peak they all wear buttplugs
this goes way back, pharaos,,ceasars, leaders from east to west throughout history all had buttplugs up to 70 percent of their time they used this to constipate themselve and build up anxiety and reasoning. and when they need to make decisve action they just pull out and shit like sewers. this gives them a orgasmic pulse through body and brain that will make them do the right thing 99,99% of the time
Works for me. When doing my work I'm up all night alone, I do high end security contracting and just gave up. Unhappy with weight, unhappy with everything so I just don't eat or sleep. Spend all night outside contemplating suicide and smoking cigarettes alone in a big beautiful empty property
I don't. I just mask it well enough for no one to notice the difference. It's supposedly been 4 years since I was "cured," but we both know that's a lie. You just live with it as best as possible and learned how to feign happiness well enough to sometimes even fool yourself.
It has it's ups and downs; mainly downs, but I haven't killed myself yet so I guess in a way, I'd be winning?
oh god, have never heard of this before (also not op) but i know i like it already!!!
