Well /r9k/, my depression literally vanished into thin air sometime around yesterday, and I felt happy for the first time in three years. Somehow, the whole "IT GETS BETTER" meme worked out.
Oh yes, I know that depression never goes away, and that it's going to come back sometime soon with an even bigger, harder throbbing cock to ram up my ass unlubed, but might as well enjoy my time like this.
My advice for the numerous suicidal bots that I've seen posting on here: wait a bit. Just wait a bit, and try to beat the odds like I did. No harm in doing that, you were going to off yourself into the eternal void anyways, weren't you?
OP, this happened to me. Turns out my clinical depression went bipolar somehow.
My depression went away a week ago for no apparent reason for about an hour. It was easy to smile, I was excited for all the little things in life, and I talked to people I knew in person in my head for a little while that I can't normally talk to besides one sentence conversations. I was happy for the future and I didn't want to sleep, but I eventually passed out and woke up dead inside. Just enough to remember what not having depression feels like to contrast to my usual life.
I truly hope it last for you :)
The anon you're replying to here.
Anon, if you want a single chance of the misery not coming back, leave this place. Just fucking go, any time you click here you should be reminded that you should be reminded that you should not and will not be here.
This place warps your mind, it drags you down into despair and misery no matter how hard you fight. It's because it's filled with negativity and when that's all you see and know you start being influenced by it.
Go, robot. Save yourself for the both of us.

Not necessarily. Not that guy but I haven't had a manic episode for like 3 years now and I don't see it happening again.
Yeah, this shit is pretty sadistic, seems to like to let us know what we're missing.
to be truthful, my oneitis and i started dating recently, and she's been really supportive of me, and is probably the main reason that i'm getting better. i know, reeee and all that, but trust me, getting a gf after so long doesn't take away my metal skin, robots.
If I'm remembering correctly, that's because magnesium is an NMDA antagonist. NMDA antagonists are proven to have very potent anti-depressant effects. But you'd be better off taking some MXE every week imho.
If magnesium is indeed the element I'm thinking of, here's a fun fact: it's theorized that your brain releases a shit ton of magnesium right before you die to protect you from the oxidative stress, and it makes you basically have a mini dissociative trip with hallucinations and divine experiences and everything. That's what causes so-called near death experiences.
I am just filled with useless information. I'm a hoot at parties.
Same thing really, it helps to stabilize my moods and ward off any manic feelings. Truly wonderful that it has enabled me to be medication free. Taurine can act as an anti-psychotic too.
I'd cut out of the caffiene if you're consuming it though, I was mad for it, especially when on the meds but it's just another thing that could bring on a manic episode outside of sleep deprivation.
I have found so far for myself at least, as long as I am getting a good amount of sleep, eating properly through the day, keeping hydrated with water, taking magnesium glycinate that I haven't had an episode since.

>been going on Adderall binges for the past month, sleeping once every four days, with no intentions of stopping myself
Very interesting Anon, I appreciated that. Also I'd rather just go the natural route, as you said yourself it's quite potent and for a very good reason. It serves over 300 biological functions within the body, and it is very hard to get naturally in a modern diet, meaning a ridiculous amount of people are deficient. There is always such an importance put on vitamins, and a lot of people forget about minerals and what they do for us.
I honestly believe a lot of robots who did magnesium therapy would feel so much better, it's amazing for anxiety as well and this is coming from someone who used to abuse benzos.
From my experience of getting a girlfriend, I deal with it by completely removing my life and replacing it with theirs.
I'm happy until I'm alone.
I can do things that make them happy, but I feel like nothing they can do can make me happy besides be happy and let me enjoy it vicariously.
