[Dep] Want to be an Optimistic Person (11)

1 Name: Anonymage : 2015-10-17 09:19 [Del]

I want to be in a good mood, and stay in a good mood.
Over the course of several days, I go from being unreasonably ecstatic to horribly depressed. I know when the switch begins happening. At the peak of happiness, my mind rushes, thinking of everything I want to do. It's overload. I lock down, descend into sadness. Eventually I ride back up, only to fall back down.

When I'm down, the worst is that I know that I can change my outlook. But for some reason, even though I know I can control my feelings, I can't actually go through with it. A part of me won't let me stay with the good times.

I wish I could wake up, say "I'm going to be the most positive and optimistic person alive", and see everything in a happy light, and be friendly toward all living things. Nothing is stopping me, but I still can't do it.

Try lithium ortate. It's a wonderful mood stabilizer that has been used for the treatment of various mood disorders, primarily bipolar disorder, for over 50 years.
What's best is that lithium is an essential mineral, so it's very safe to take, much safer than caffeine.

I used to be a happy, cheerful person who enjoyed solitude, but then depression kicked in and I felt I couldn't take life anymore and had to end it--until I met lithium ortate, the best mood stabilizer on the market, and ever since I've been right in between the two highs, the happy high and the low high.

It is mysterious.
I was feeling like garbage just yesterday.
Then i decided to fap to Maids before sleep. Maids are my fetish.
And i woke up feeling like a new man, medtate with some inceses lit, did some exercises even, cooked and cleaned the house for my mother.
I just cannot explain what happened but i want to make this last.

Same with me OP, until I started taking prozac, literally no side effects, I'm just not constantly fluctuating in mood, I even look forward to waking up in the morning, I used to be scared to go to bed at night because I didn't want to face tomorrow, but now I think "I can't wait until tomorrow morning, I can't wait to eat my favorite cereal, and I can't wait to drink a soda" and so on

I recommend exercise.
No, really.
Works better than antidepressants. Shown to do this in a systematic review.

Exercise gives the same kind of endorphins and such that grinding in MMOs does. It's levelling up but in real life. The progress is addictive, but also satisfying.
The sense of being productive also helps with mood. Learning a skill in something, even if it's just a hobby will help.

But if my depression is anything like anyone elses- actually forcing yourself to do these things is the biggest hurdle. I recommend some primary motivation. Revenge is a fairly good one. My motivation for exercise comes from the fantasy of beating up normies. Especially certain ones.
But try and find something that works for you.

I just meditate. Just put your mind in blank for at least 10 minutes per day, and after some days your thoughts will be easier to control. Mediation can help you get rid of negative thoughts and other mental garbage.

Take it to /dep/. All /dep/ posters should kill themselves in my opinion.

8 Name: Anonymage : 2015-11-26 14:11 [Del]

/dep/ is about whining. At least >>1 wants to improve his mood.

You're shitposting, but I'm not saying all shitposters should kill themselves either.

Realizing that so many others are going through the same manic-depressive cycles has made me wonder how much that optimistic crap posted online is just bull propped up by manic stages, and not just that all people on imageboards are idiots.
