Keep taking those anti-depressants anon, the brain-zaps are a normal side-effect. That's why the doctor never bothered to warn you or list it as a potential problem ZAP in the given information. Gosh I wiZAAsh I could takZAAAAAe mine twice! Life savers haha!
Antidepressants have fucking horrible side effects and don't even work for most people. I definitely agree that it's awful how quickly they're prescribed in the US.
I feel like doctors go "hey, we have a patient diagnosed with depression, should we run blood tests on him? Should we measure his hormones and thyroid? Should we test for vitamin and mineral deficiencies? Nah, let's just give him a script for Zoloft, since we make more money off prescriptions anyway."
Reminds me of something Frenchie said when I told him I've been taking a lot of benzos.
Stop!? Why Zwould you eveZZrz stop? These things are a dreamboat, a one way ZAAAPP
Thzese things are a dreamboat, a one zzz way ticket to zzzzZ enlightenment. Sure it makes zmeZz overeat but RomZZZe wasn't built without some dropped bricks am I right!?
Huh? I think you've got the wrong guy, brother. I'vezap never been better, brother! Once I've had my 5 day (zappillszap that is haha) and 3 coffee's I'mZAP ready to take on the world, jack.
Fellow pill brothers shouldn't fight.
If you haven't exhausted all possible issues which have symptoms similar to depression then you should look further.
One commonly overlooked issue is loneliness, lack of proper stimuli, and very often pornography/masturbation addiction which causes symptoms similar to depression, mainly anhedonia, bleakness of everything, lack of energy, etc.
Then there are issues with thyroid or other hormones and the endocrine system. These also require looking into.
For the doctors it is more simple to give you pills than to dig in what could possibly cause your state. It is given by the whole framework of capitalism and our current economy and culture. Short term profit is the main goal, and blessed be the exceptions that are true to real values. Those who do the work properly because it is the goddamn common courtesy.
>not self-medicating with liquor, cocaine, and hookers
It is hard to make people want to hang out with you. But you can make a workout buddy. That is one of easiest scenarios. Whom you befriend depends on your current residence.
Then you can volunteer in homes for the elderly. Most often the volunteering consists of being a company to the elderly. Then you can ask for some training and get scrubs and do some work in taking care of them. This again depends on your life situation. If you are not employed, it might be a good way to fill your time with doing something meaningful.
Another thing you might try is to enroll in latin dancing lessons. Be humble, be considerate, but also have some pride and dignity. Plus you might get used to being with women, listening and talking. And becoming more confident. If you are to choose this, you will learn a lot.
There are of course other possible ways. You can socialize on terms that you define. It is up to you.
Blowjobs are pretty nice. Not very good at describing things, but it's just kind of wet and warm. Cock sort of tingles while they're going at it, if they're any good. It's very relaxing, too. Just sitting back and letting her go to work while you chill out.
I was prescribed SSRIs and antipsychotics in my last year of highschool and took them throughout college. I was off and on them until I stopped altogether shortly after graduating . Take it from me when I say they did nothing but fuck my head up worse then what it already was. I'm basicly a personalityless drained zombie, nothing provides me with joy or excitement at all. I've been off all forms of medication for more than a year now, the ED is gone and some of my wit and creativity has come back but nonetheless I feel like the side effects aren't going to go away soon. Music and video games dont excite me anymore, all I want to do in my spare time is smoke weed sit on my balcony staring into the horizon. I cant trip on LSD anymore because of how my brain chemistry has been altered. I'm still a bland person that no one wants to hang out with. Dont fall for it kids, those poisons do nothing but make some fat Jew at the top rich
Aren't those withdrawals syndromes? You probably stopped taking them because you're a moody contrarian faggot and are now dealing with the consequences.
In all seriousness, anti-depressives usually don't work if you have a legitimate reason to be depressed, or if you have some fucked up thought disorder that is causing your depression. They do however work miracles if the root of your depression is physiological and your brain has been fucking up. I'm very happy that they exist.
