>am actually on welbutrin >wonder if i should stop it since i'm still depressed and robots say ssri's are basically meme drugs that fuck your shit up even if they do help you S-should I just stop with AD's?
>>26472272 I've been on them before(mirtazapine) and they were of limited efficacy (the insomnia that came with me ceasing to take mirtazapine was horrible). Seeing as I've been wrestling with suicidal thoughts for about a year, I'm especially wary of taking them now - especially SSRIs, as they can make suicidal thoughts even worse.
If I even hint at not being mentally entirely "normal" my family instantly reassures me that I'm perfectly normal, they would never consider me to have a mental illness because they don't want me to be a failure or something
>>26472272 I tried Zoloft for a while but it made me too drowsy to actually achieve any effect. Had me nearly sleeping through lectures. I switched to paroxetine and while I didn't feel drowsy like before, I felt a sort of detachment from everything that made me sort of want to stop taking it. Still have depression senpai and its only gotten worse.
I was on anti-depressants for about 4 and a half years from age ~10-14. I had been taking them for long enough that my parents and I weren't sure they were still having any effect, so I stopped. Turns out they were still having a massive impact on my personality. They turned me into a high-energy outgoing relentlessly positive attention seeking class clown type. By nature I have a lot of classic depressive symptoms like extremely low self esteem, lack of energy and difficulty expressing or feeling strong positive emotions, particularly happiness (although my sense of humour is still intact). The idea of taking pills that essentially turned me into a completely different person bothered me so much that I've refused to take any kind of psychological medication ever since, despite strong pressure from my parents to do so ever since (I'm 22 now).
my father took antidepressants about the time I hit puberty
not so coincidentally my father went from being my father to being a bipolar hateful piece of shit that would be a family man and suddenly become a complete asshole multiple times within the same week, usually the former if he was even doing something besides watching tv sleeping or doing work
coincidentally my mother got titty cancer and that fucked her up in the head slightly, and my brother started having seizures
can't say I'm fond of the thought of ever touching antidepressants given lack of a social life and my father being the only person I really looked up to as a kid.

I was on these drugs for years. These drugs are horrible for you. Most people gain weight. I gained about 20 pounds. For some people the weight gain is severe. They limit the severity of your lows but also your highs. You become dull and apathetic. Most people have sexual side effects include reduced or complete loss of interest (give up on ever being normal.)
Commit to a serious exercise regimen, eat healthy and use marijuana instead (vaporized preferably.) Instead of feeling dull and apathetic you will actually feel good. Instead of harming your body you will become physically fit. I am moving to a State with medical weed for this purpose.
Most doctors are well meaning but they only read big pharma-approved literature (advertisements, really) and only prescribe big pharma-marketed crap. Pfizer, Novartis, et al do not profit from the steps I prescribed above; that's why you won't find that advice in mainstream, corporate channels.
>>26475604 Fluoxetine. It didn't turn me into a normie though. It made me positive, energetic and outgoing but I was still VERY weird. It also delayed the onset of puberty until I was 15 (almost immediately after I stopped taking it) so the entire time I was that weird chubby baby looking kid who was constantly seeking attention. At a time where people were hitting puberty and starting their first relationships I was still a strange, stunted child.
>>26475693 You are just a collection of memories and habits operating under an illusion of a persistent self somehow separate from its environment. Rejecting a better life just because it forces you to think about your fake-ass sentience is full-on retarded.
Because anti-depressants have erectile dysfunction and loss of libido as potential side effects. Fuck the jews, they couldn't take my foreskin from me when I was born so now they're coming back with their mental jew pills promising me I won't want to kill myself and I'll feel normal if I give up my ability to have healthy erections with full sensitivity. YOU'LL TAKE MY DICK FROM ME WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD DEAD STICKY HANDS YOU COCK-HUNGRY KIKES!

>>26478092 Sounds like those Equate orange shitty for your health flavored tablets you put in a glass of water and once it is finished dissolving, you then consume.
Things you do not want: >Artificial Orange Flavor >Mineral Oil (a distillation product of petroleum, plus it makes you not easily absorb vitamins). >Maltodextrin >Acesulfame Potassium >Sorbitol >Sucralose (splenda, which is horrible).
Can ruin your teeth if consumed too often: >Citric Acid
Sugar and citric acid together on a daily basis will ruin your teeth, especially if you have a shitty diet, because brushing your teeth is not what keeps them perfect, your diet is to thank for that, but brushing does help with a clean mouth.
>>26472272 So, what exactly would happen if I went to a doctor and told them I'm depressed/suicidal? Would they just refer me to a therapist or would they put me in a psych ward for a few days? I wanna get help but going to the doctor makes me anxious as hell.
>>26472272 Been on them for a couple of years, being admitted to a mental hospital while I switch off the one I'm on now because I quit my job and "tried to kill myself" (bought some rope and let my parents stop me, you don't have to tell me how pathetic that is) >I'm looking forward to the human contact and hoping I can make friends >at the mental hospital
Fuck up. marijuana has literally zero fucking positive effects for someone with depression and anxiety, even if you convince yourself it has...it's only temporary.
Anti-depressants are just big pharma sugar pills with the added bonus of dependency and brain damage.
Diet and exercise is a fucking normie meme to the equivalent of JUS B URSELF.
I've come to the realization there is no fucking fix for this shit. The only way to make improvements is to fucking decide to do it. Do the things you want to do, fuck other peoples and your own expectations and opinions and simply start doing the things you want to do for no reasons other than you want to.
