    Get real help if you need it. Depression and suicide run in my family. For me, I don’t get a bit down I will tail spin into a deep, dark depression that makes life impossible. I have been stable now for years w/o a depressive episode.

    Things that help me: the right anti-depressant (150mg/day of Bupropion), exercise, regular therapy, eating healthy, staying busy, and for the love of God staying away from Booze.

    The therapeutic value in Psychedelics is seriously underestimated. Certain experiences can have such a profound effect on the way you see yourself, this world, others and the way you fit into the mix. ImE they literally have potential to save your life and abolish toxic ruminating thought processes …. I owe psychedelics a lot for my happiness today. That’s saying a lot considering I haven’t even used them in years…

    What helps with your depression?

    They also played a huge role in my sobriety today. Not like I just Took them and then suddenly my urge to use was just gone. It’s not like that. They were a tool to dig deep down into the root of the cause and help me find acceptance with the way things are and eased my desire to numb everything away. Helped me see my place in this ride we call life….

    I have been following some of your post and have this to say..Some of the compounds,amounts and duration hasn't helped your situation at all..A great deal of PED's come with mental sides,mood swings and downfalls..
    If you are pushing such compounds still and trying to cope with other issues,this could be a dead end road..and very well end up bad..Im speaking from a past experiences..that spinned out of control and other substances entered my life..if this is happening now..Get Help...if not yet...Good...
    But either way,I'd look at the whole picture and see what's Most important..big arms or sanity..

    Just some advice from a friend that went over the edge once before..

    What helps with your depression?

    Are you the same guy that was struggling with opiate addiction/withdrawals?

    If so that is probably playing a big role….impossible to get mental health under control while using stuff like that IMHO. Gonna take months maybe years of being sober for drug induced depression to subside… it does get better though and once it does it’s pretty permanent, at least it has been in my case (also recovered from opiates, over 3 years now)

    No judgment just my experience, I’m not even sure if that was you or not…

    Honestly Brother...if it's something that's interfering with you happeness and well being..or even health..perhaps you need to take some steps back and figure a plan of attack..Like many have said,what's more important to you..??
    Many of us have had an unsavoury past with substance abuse..

    Man, I can only speak personally from my own demons and battles with depression this year. But the only thing that will truly fill that void for you is God. And I don’t mean RELIGION. I mean Christ.
    Religion gets this stigma of judgmental, self-righteous, holier than thou types and that’s just sad, because it turns people away, and makes others give that “eye roll” every time you try to mention Jesus, or Prayer, or reading the Bible. But that’s not how it’s supposed to be.
    I recommend looking up the Southeast Christian Church podcast, or more specifically their Pastor, Kyle Idleman. The way he approaches faith isn’t from the typical hellfire and brimstone style, and not the “you’ve gotta be perfect” view. It truly is about just making yourself better, and learning about how to do that through the written word. It’s very uplifting, and has helped me a lot.
    Now, I’m by no means perfect, at ALL. But that isn’t what this is about. It’s about self-healing, and if you’re depressed it’s because you have a void in your soul. Alcohol, drugs, depression meds, and AAS won’t fill that.

    This right here is truth. Psychedelic drugs can cure depression and you wouldn’t need to take a “happy pill” every morning ever again. LSD got me off anti depressants in my early 20s. Research it. If not experienced and you go this route I’d advise some one experienced take the trip with you.

    Obscured your right! LSD and a few shrooms can flip a switch in your brain and totally change someone’s paradigm. Ive been there. It can also flip it for the worse if not with the right EXPERIENCED people to lead you through it. Been there also. It’s really an incredible experience.

    Been meaning to to take a therapeutic trip sometime soon. Just to try and refocus my brain. Feel like I’ve been loosing site of what really matters and been way too stressed out lately.

    I’ve been sitting on 2 sheets of some really good shit for 3 or 4 years now… I’m honestly kinda nervous to drop a dose…

    See a Psychiatrist. Find out your specific mental illness. Educate yourself about it and actively participate in making improvements, for example someone who gets Dialectical behavior therapy (psychotherapy that began with efforts to treat borderline personality disorder) and take medication consistently on time. Your first may not be the one, it is often trial and error, but stay committed and engaged. Meds work, but are only a part of the answer. You have to put in the work.

It also helps to talk to someone who can provide an neutral outside perspective.

    IMO meds are a last resort but for clinical depression often necessary.
    This, worked for me also. To this day I try and go hiking at least a few times a month. By hiking I mean easy trails I can get to quick. If I am really down and out though, nothing beats getting on an ATV/dirtbike and getting lost on trails I have never been on before. Wide open.... Then camp wherever I end up...wake up and repeat...

    To this day I talk to a counselor once a month. I use to think only pussies did this. That is until I realized just how hard it is to face your demons and look in the mirror. Especially for somebody else to see/hear...

    Who cares what your therapist thinks of you bro. Your paying them to sit there and listen so you can get shit off YOUR chest. Every so often they will throw in some advice to help you get through whatever. That’s their job. A good therapist will never judge you period. I go no less than twice a week and I can honestly say without that couple hours a week of me bitching and moaning to her I would have been in the prison a long time ago.
