Post your most relatable depression reaction pictures. I have a folder of these and looking at them, recognizing myself in them makes me feel better. As if someone out there shares my thoughts and feelings, even though the pictures are mostly cartoons and animals. It's an illusion, but somehow it helps.

Anyone here tried those? What did they do.

My shrink prescribed me Wellbutrin for fatigue which I took for 3 months or so, but they didn't do shit except reduce nicotine cravings. Apparently it's also prescribed for smoking cessation for which it worked wonders actually.
Shrink didn't want to prescribe me other AD's because those have heavier side effects and she thinks it wouldn't be worth it since they usually make fatigue worse and are more for anxiouspatients.

I also tried a bunch of nootropics, but none of those did anything. If you have experience, share those aswell

UPDATE:
i got off of them because they made me more depressed than before and they stopped working for my chronic back pain. so fuck that shit. but yea the first week was amazing, after that meh pretty shit. try what you like i guess.

That shit made me feel like a zombie, I only took them for a week or so and then I threw the pills away. My depression lasted during most of my 20s, but now it's healing naturally. I feel much better and I'm not a slave to some jew pills.

It's been more than 6 months the last time I tried this shitty Amitryptiline and I still have brain fog, speech issues(overall slow speech, mixing up words, stopping mid-sentence, etc) mild constipation and a bunch of other extremely annoying symptoms.
I can't tell If it's the drug or just depression but I've never had physical symptoms that I could attribute to sadness or anxiety… I took it only for 2 days but I've also taken this shit prior for weeks and it didn't give me such problems(aside from constipation?)
These drugs are extremely weird and I have no idea why they even exist.

I've tried Zoloft, Lexapro and St John's Wort. Zoloft made me psychotic and dumbed down (despite having no previous history of psychosis) - it stopped after I was off Zoloft. Lexapro made me feel like a zombie and very mentally slow, I didn't have much thoughts… at all. St John's Wort has been the most effective for me, it's cheap to buy online and is well tolerated according to meta analysis studies. It has minimal side effects and works as well, if not better, then SSRIs. It's prescribed commonly over in a few European and Oceania countries instead of SSRIs, apparently. I'd recommend St John's Wort, instead of just blocking the reuptake of serotonin, it slowly over time creates a higher density of serotonin receptors from what I understand.

I've tried them all and none of them have had any effect. When I took Welbutrin for 2-3 months it didn't even reduce my nicotine cravings.

What you are talking about is orthodox, classic marxism-leninism. Communism is much more than that. There are many communist thinkers and philosophers post-marxism. I would advise you to read this >>238374 article for a start. Also look into anarcho-communism. Many communist thinkers nowadays and in the 20th century wanted to get rid of wageslaving altogether and to make a society where people don't get material or other goods based on merit but according to who needs it the most. Which is very wizardly considering most of us don't want to work or are NEETs already. Also read about the lumpenproletariat. It refers to those people of the lower classes who are the lowest-of-the-low, meaning beggars, homeless people, criminals, whores, unemployed people, etc. Basically, what most wizards fall into. If you are a NEET, I read some communist philosopher say, you are already making anarchism possible, you are living anarchism right at this moment. Others thinkers, I think it was the Frankfurt School, said that wageslaves are too sedated by mainstream society to make a successful revolution and that it will be the lumpenproletariat who will achieve revolution. Also, Bakunin said that young, unemployed intellectuals will play a leading, key role in the coming socialist/anarchist world.
>We would thrive in an "every man for himself" type of environment, but without the myriad of regulations of mixed capitalism
What a delusion. It is exactly we wiz-neets who can't exist without a society we can leech off. If you can't even survive in this world without the support of others then how will you survive in a social darwinistic kind of anarchy? You and me and others here would be the first ones to get killed or enslaved by normals. If you are a depressed, anxious hermit then how will you survive a world of constant conflict? Anarcho-individualism is just another form of capitalism, it is actually capitalism in its ugliest form. You take what you can get - the strong will rule the weak eventually and we will be worse off than in current society.
Anarcho-communism on the other hand is exactly designed to benefit people like us. A world without money, without classes, without state: a world where those get the material or other goodies who nePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Figured I'd make a thread about it
Been going through a pretty rough spot of depression and have been punching myself in the head for the last few days
That's a pretty new thing for me, I've cut a couple times over the years but never seriously. Mostly I just bite nails, chew my lips, pick at scabs or pull out hairs. Minor shit but still just trying to eat away at the edges of myself, this is the first time in awhile I've done anything more "involved" I suppose
Any wizards have any similar experiences feel free to share

You're a faggot for kicking wizzies while they're down. I have a friend who used to cut; it's not just a succubus thing, and treating it that way causes more harm than good. He has to wear longsleeves year round at is wageslave job to not get made fun of by his normalfag coworkers.

For succubi that probably is the reason, which is why they tend to self harm visually by cutting.

For men it is more about relieving aggression that for one reason or another is not being released. Which is why it tends to take forms like punching and biting, more basic and anger fueled forms of violence.

I'm not that guy but I have to say I agreed with him, never heard of a man that wasn't some cring emo doing self cutting, it seems so bizzare to me. Not much else I can say, learn to handle emotional pain in a better/healthier way, even being a warlock who hates society is far better off than some emo who cuts up their arms. Or go and take a bat/axe and cut up some trees if you can find any, not illegally, good stress releiver, once when my father was bullying me, I took an axe, half intending to kill him with it, but instead just hit trees with it, was a good way to let off stress and felt a lot better afterwards.

Perspective blinds objectivity. Status blinds objectivity. Race blinds objectivity. Religion blinds objectivity. Ideology blinds objectivity. Sex blinds objectivity. We are ceaselessly speaking into the void for a hint of cerebral pleasure. What is the best way to look at something? Obviously, I am so blinded that I cannot give a genuine answer. Are facts the only reality? I seriously sound like an idiot… shall I read a book? It's seriously just another blinder to make my reality more opaque. I am not a wizard… I do not speak like one. I won't pretend to be one. My words won't twist to appease any zeitgeist, or flavor of person. I am not a sycophant.

Bullshit. Reality is just the truth that you are here right now (Dasein) and nothing you can do against this knowledge. Trivial stuff. You are NOT special. Give up on trying to be special. Noone cares.

Due to the way we perceive and process the outside world, it's impossible to approach the real "truth". Just find something you are comfortable with believing, that seems reasonable.

It is true, you'll never see the world how it is without perspective. But this perspective is actually how the world 'really' is, stop thinking about the pure objectivity unaltered by the subjective human condition. The pasta point remains.

Everything in this world seems designed to taunt me. I thought I won a small victory over reality by quelling my desire for material things, but in return I've been saddled with an "intellectual" thirst and something approaching a creative drive. That seems like a fitting pursuit for those with a certain level of detachment from society, and indeed the histories, philosophies and natural sciences enjoy an avid readership among the niche imageboard crowd–this one being no exception.

Not me, though; God has given me the middle finger with this below-average IQ and learning disorder of mine. Now I gather books and media and information–I seek erudition or at least some salvation from the shitworld–but the means of comprehending and analyzing what I read are beyond me any attempts at sharing my thoughts are met with indifference at best and derision at worst. My hands are fucking useless–the passages I write are as incoherent and devoid of life as my inner world (which supposedly most solitary people have). I can't affect reality and I can't escape it either. Too insipid to create, too feeble to destroy.

Just a perpetual observer

Your post was well written and enjoyable to read. If you're capable of making two good paragraphs, why not three, then four? You could try writing as a hobby.
I'll assume part of the reason you made your post was to see if you could write well. You were clearly thinking about sentence structure and word choice and even criticized the quality of your writing, which is the biggest proof that this is something you not only care about, but have a sense of taste for. If you find your writing bad (which I personally don't) then be thankful, because there are people out who can't if their writing is bad or not.

If you're insecure that you can't escape letting your neuroses taint the neutrality of your writing, then just turn the neuroses into traits of a character so to look at yourself in third person. Lots of good writers did this.

Let's say that you are in a situation where you somehow have enough money to move out and live on your own, but possess about 0 social skills or living skills, and even basic chores are challenging. But at home, you are stuck living in a shared room with your parents for 25 years. Would you move out?

Absolutely hate sharing shit with parents so would move as long as I didn't have to live in some downtrodden ghetto.

Seems like a huge waste of money and way to make sure even a small sickness turns into a major inconvenience since there's nobody who you can even ask for a favor.
In my situation moving out would only make sense if it was tied with work.

Eh I don't exactly love living with my parents, but is way better than living by myself and giving the jews all my money for a tiny ant apartment.

I would move out if I could get delivery and I had social workers helping me for essential life things or even if I did not the trouble is I cannot live on my own.
I can but the place I live in ends up looking like some anarchists squatted and LARPed as GG allin.

The secret to the normalfags game is obvious - they're all about numbers; there's a lot more of them than there are of you. Self-awareness and intellectual tactics are your friend around them. Do not, and I repeat DO NOT betray any hint of negative emotion around the normalfaggots, they will quickly reverse this on you. You can look any way you want. And if people stare at you, use a tactic that isolates one of them and use the group against one of their own.

Do you believe someone who find joy in other people's suffering and misfortune deserve to be happy?
Nothing brightens up my day more than seeing people I dislike experience pain and suffering.
Injury, illness, the death of a loved one, losing their jobs/money, straight up death and/or suicide, you name it.
In fact, the more severe their misery is, the more joy I get from it.
This leads me to believe that I don't deserve happiness myself.
Why would anyone want to associate themselves with someone who finds joy in things like these?

Depends a little on why you're resentful but no, I wouldn't say it disqualifies you from being happy. Especially if you're introspective and guilty about it. Might make it harder to be happy, though.

Depends!
Do you feel joy when you see the local homeless guy getting tortured and beaten up by skinheads? Do you like it when a small african kid dies of poverty and hunger? Do you feel happy when an ugly person gets bullied? If yes, then you are an asshole.
Now, do you enjoy seeing your alcoholic dad who beat you up as a kid developing cancer? Do you enjoy seeing rich psychopaths suffering from emotional, mental or physical pain? You laughed at drone-footage of muslim terrorists getting blown to pieces? Whatever, maybe you aren't a saint but you certainly shouldn't feel guilty in these cases. God/Destiny/Lady Fortune felt that these bastards should now get a dose of their own medicine, sit back and enjoy it.
It is always important to distinguish. Life isn't black and white. Suffering is generally bad but when shitty, selfish psychopaths suffer it can be a good thing too. Just like empathy is generally a good thing but it can be dangerous too when you feel it towards those who lack it completely.
