Yeah, depression can cause a lot of side effects; like ceasing to live, the treatments can also cause all the same issues as depression does. It's
best to work those things you can't out with a close understanding friend; some of it can be from food allergies; or all the processed foods etc. You
rarely meet unhappy veggie, vegan, or natural food dieted people.
I mean look up the side effects of something as simple as food coloring...each one carries horrible side effects. Look at what is in the local water
supply, Chlorine, Fluoride trace amounts of 100's of pharma drugs. A lot of times when a person can't pin point why or where the depression is
coming from; food is the main culprit.
Another often over looked area of a cause is climate...personally, I belong on Hawaii...I hate all cold weather, my joints hurt, my bones ache, and my
muscles spasm. I just want to hibernate; until the upper 60's pop back around. Not a fan of humidity either; yay I just showered and now as soon as I
step outside; I am soaked with sweat woo hoo. But...it is better to me than cold; I just feel like if I fell down I'd shatter like a fine China,
although I am probably over estimating my value...how about a wine glass on a floor. I do drink it a lot and tend to whine a lot when the climate
doesn't play nice. Global warming? Bring it on!!! My smile would be larger than the Jokers 24/7/365. Selfish? Not really I can't control the
weather; no back stage pass to HARRP or anything like that.
I don't know everyone seems to have a drug of choice if they have ever done those; most of them are natural so why not just prescribe those; the only
time they become unhappy is when they run out anyway...I mean shopping is a drug of choice; how about hiring those people to be product models or
demonstraitors...new stuff yay!
It's the simple things I suppose; the depression from emotional scars, and toxic families. Shutting down becomes a coping mechanism is it a good one?
In the situation youre trying to avoid? Hell yeah, but you get used to that feeling and can slink back into it easily; the best thing is surround
yourself with experience and people you've always loved and enjoyed, to pull yourself out of it, whats the opposite of self loathing? Yep treating
yourself and close loved ones like that's all that matters, in the world. Eject the things and people that bring you down in life. It's yours,
depressed you may not want it but changing it is just a choice away.
The best people to consult for mental health is really old people that appear happy; if you can make it to 80 and still have something to smile about
they know whats up, more than anybody...and sadly most of them sit alone rarely seen by any family; and most of their friends are dying or dead. If
you know one, sit and share coffee from time to time and just chat...talk about a change in perception of the world around you...
I guess what I am saying; is depression and other mental issues aren't natural but learned disfunctional coping mechanisms; trying to replace the
chemicals, you would naturally get when out there having experiences that release them; is more psychotic than any DSM label ever contrived.
I mean look up what the chemicals are the brain releases during sex...would you rather get them in pill form; with no sensual stimuli causing their
release? Um, doubtful...yay pharma; trying to solve problems; that experience and wisdom can cure if given the chance. It's a funeral; why are you
smiling? Can't help it Prozac. This just creates a disconnect with appropriate emotions in a given situation; eventually leaving one emotionally flat
experiencing everything with the same mood. Woo Woo ima robot sorry I meant beep boop.
Humor works as well
