 No.277007[Last 50 Posts]

The purpose of this thread is to counter the general tenor of sadness that defines all the other threads. This thread will therefore feature practical advice about reducing suicidal behavior even when we feel most suicidal. Naturally, being that I started the topic, I will be the first to contribute.

(1) Know that I care about you guys deeply and sincerely. Call me a faggot, I don't care.
(2) Examine what you are eating. For example, gluten especially produces depressive/psychotic episodes in sensitive autistic individuals. Sugar also is not healthy for your brain.
(3) Make sure you are getting sufficient sleep. Chronic sleeplessness or even a few days' worth of irregular sleep can seriously interfere with the clarity of our thinking.
(4) Clean up. Taking a warm shower and putting on fresh clean clothes always is refreshing and helps to break up darkened mental habits.
(5) Breathe fresh air. Open the windows to your wiz-cave and allow some wind to come in.
(6) Watch your breathing. When we are panicked, our breathing can become very disordered and we do not recognize the effect this has on our thinking. Take deep, purposeful breaths, and collect your thoughts.
(7) Respect yourself. You have done your best to survive in an awful world, and you should grant yourself forgiveness for any mistakes and the allowance to rest with a composed and balanced mind.

I've done my part. Anyone else?

you improovers always loose me with this.

There is literally no person who has done anything of value throught entire history who hasn't eaten carbs.

Like, all the pro athletes all the big scientists (Tesla, Newton, Einstein) all the big tech guys, writers, philosophers, inventors, anyone who has done anything meaningfull has eaten diet rich in carbs and sugars (fruits). And some of them were even vegeterians.

Literally find me one person or athlete besides Joe Rogan who has done anything significant and is on keto diet/low carb diet. There is none.

My question is; if carbs and sugars are so bad for the brain how come all the people I mentioned ate them and strive in every aspect of their lifes? How come Newtons or Einstens or Pitagoras or Teslas or Steve Jobs brain hasn't rotten from eating carbs?

It's a chicken egg problem. I have no problem taking care of myself when I'm not depressed. The problem is when you're in a bout of depression, and I cannot stress this enough YOU.DON'T.GIVE.A.SHIT. And that's the problem. In my experience this type of advice is only ever useful on the very cusp of depression, when you're already on your way out anyway. Going to the park and have a walk, get back and take a shower does help "settle" your way out but that's about it.

I never had severe depression but there are people on their worse who can't give enough of a shit to get up to take a piss. They just wet themselves. This is how bad it can get. I would like to see you manage to make someone in that state watch out for their diet. Actually I know you couldn't, even doctors just make them wear a diaper.

Read "Grain Brain". Wheat today is not the same than it was and also industrial sugars did not exist. Yet it's kinda loose to assume that a healthy diet is needed to actually serve that purpose, many familiars of mine eat horribly and they do not have issues. The anti-carb thing is mostly for schizos with a sensitive gut, even if it still can profit others.

What's very important is to work on how you deal with negative emotions and try to be aware of your thought patterns.

I noticed that I often catastrophize and turn small or non-issues into big problems in my head. For example something as insignificant as not reaching a high rank in a video game made me way too upset. I also always assume the worst possible scenario will happen which leads to unnecessary anxiety. I also avoid dealing with negative emotions which leads to procrastination and then eventually to dealing with even worse emotions.

>The problem is when you're in a bout of depression, and I cannot stress this enough YOU.DON'T.GIVE.A.SHIT.
100% correct. I've never pissed myself during depression, but I have neglected my responsibilities and personal health because I didn't care to push for anything. Things like eating healthy (or eating at all) and exercising are about the furthest things from my mind when I'm in a suicidal depression. Lifting weights doesn't undo the psychological damage from my emotionally abusive childhood. Soaking in some sunlight doesn't free me from having to interact with normalfags. Adjusting my diet doesn't undo the decades'-worth of societal and cultural degradation all around me. Breathing fresh air more frequently doesn't fix an economy designed to bleed people try and perpetuate poverty. And most of all, no supplement, workout, diet, or rhetorical platitudes are going to magically fill my life with a desperately needed sense of purpose.

You see, that is precisely what makes these self-help style threads so silly and basically pointless: they utterly fail to address and fix the root issue of most suicidal forms of depression, which is a lack of purpose in life. Without an definable goal of a grandiose nature to strive towards, life itself is little more than wasted time. The true struggle of it all is that most worthwhile pursuits in life have been blocked off or broken down to nothing. Want to serve God(s)? Too bad, most modern religions have been corrupted or proven to be fictional, such to the point where one would struggle to know how to even properly serve their deity. Want to work towards the betterment of humanity? Tough shit, any worthwhile invention, philosophy, governmental system, etc. you attempt to craft will either be stolen or buried by the elites to serve their own agendas. Even if you did get your ideas out to the general public, they would fall on deaf ears as the overwhelming majority of people are cognitively dissonant normalfags who reject anything too far outside of the status quo. The only path I can currently think of that could potentially work for a wizard is the 'innawoods' hermit lifestyle, but seeing as most of us here (myself included) lack the proper skills and experience to survive and live successfully in the wilderness, it's not actually viable for most of us.

With all that being said, I don't want this post to come across as "everything sucks, so we should all kill ourselves." All I really mean to say with this is that if we're going to have a thread dedicated to undoing suicidal depression, it's going to take a much deeper and more substantive discussion than "lift more and eat better." We would actually need to seriously examine this world and determine what place, if any, we may have in it, both on an individual level and in regards wizards as a collective.

The question at hand was whether or not it was commonly recommended, which it is. Whether it does anything useful for you or not is something only you'd be able to answer.

I've never tried it and haven't personally heard brilliant anecdotes about it, but then again I'd also say valerian root does about fuckall unless you come to a place where the small amount it does do might enough of a difference to be worthwhile on average, and/or in combination with other things that don't do much more than fuckall.

Again, speaking from my own experience, all the people that I know in academics eat grains and they are exceptional in their field. Even today most of the succesfull scientist in any field of science eat a bunch of grains/sugars/carbs.

If low carb diet is the most optimal; how come then nobody who is even remotely smart/intelligent/succesfull eats it? How can no athlete eats it?

As a wiz pushing into his mid 30s, I can say that life goes a lot faster after your 20s. Its not like K-12 school, where each grade feels like its own chapter of your life. In your 20s and 30s, months, seasons, years just melt away.

So next thing you know your pushing into middle age, and you can just see the horizon of dying of natural causes.

life isnt good, but its fast. and if you keep making excuses to put off suicide, next thing you know you're 50 and might as well just let it play out. And cool new AI toys from scifi are being invented.

I wanted to share a disorganised but possibly useful thought with anyone alighting upon the reading of this thread, which is this: yesterday while walking I realised that I had habituated myself for the last 10 years into existing in a sort of suicidal delirium where I could not really rationally "see" any other option. The sadness being so great that thinking about ending my life had become a normal and chronic feature of my mind. But toward the end of my walk, I asked myself inwardly "what has any of this ever done for me? When I was younger, thinking about suicide made perfect sense because I actually was in that amount of pain (and perhaps I still am, to a degree), but I am older now, and I have the full power of a graduated reasoning brain with which to form new healthier thinking habits."

I understood then that I don't have to think depressively anymore. I'm not a kid/teenager/university student anymore. I'm keeping up the mental patterns of my youth simply "out of practice" because I really haven't ever known anything else save sadness. I can choose to reformat my thinking away from past pain and at least try to create a new way of seeing things. Of course this doesn't change what things were or are, and admittedly, I don't know if or to what extent this will work, but I gained some self-awareness then that my brain has been on repeat for many years and that this is needless.

This really does help one feel physically and mentally better. However, when one has made the choice or has known that this is simply patching up or making temporary fixes of things, you're not realizing that the problem itself is just being alive. If you patch yourself enough to dull out the thoughts of suicide and gain some sort of joy, I suppose that's good enough for some. Some of us just don't wish to exist and see not much wrong with death.

This site fosters an almost affirming attitude towards sadness and suicide, almost as if even in a cult-like virtual echo room, with the full persuasive force of the group discouraging anything that is spoken against the consensus tone. How remarkable that you guys shout down those who essay to bring others up from bottommost despair. Even now, as adults, we try viciously to dominate each other, or leastwise to keep others locked in a dark state, disallowing improvement.

You have governorship over your own mind. You can choose not to submerge yourself in sadness by rejecting the mental patterns you have followed for so long and creating new ones. You can forgive yourself. We should show kindness to ourselves — for what we have endured, and for what we still endure — instead of putting ourselves down with privately heard insults.

All of you have worth. We’re not w0men — we should be honestly sharing thoughts with one another that tend toward making everyone less sad, not more so. How many of you have self-awareness that this website seems to prey on the sad, instead of helping them?

Sounds like you have a rare serious mental illness that disposes you to depression regardless of your physical health. Given this, you're in no position to dismiss the importance of eating right and getting enough nature exposure.

From now on, open your posts with the fact that your mental illness prevents you from smiling or feeling good, this way nobody will waste time giving you advice that would benefit 98% of other men here.

that's where you're fucking lying. physical health is irrelevant. it doesn't change anything, unless you're a whining failed normalfaggot who needed to be spoofed how to fuck a succubus. good physical health is a [italic] consequence [/italic] of tolerable life conditions. i even do fucking exercise and look goddamn fit and i look at the mirror and see absolutely no value in those muscles because they really have no value. why do i even bother with exercise? i don't. it's a habit and i know that if i fail to follow this habit at least for a month i won't start exercising again in another 5 years. "eat better" will not positively affect "98%" of men. it will positively affect 98% of normgroids. maybe i'm mentally ill, i don't have an official diagnosis and i don't really care, but the advice you give is terribly useless, because it doesn't change the core of the problem which's not a shitty diet.

measures to decrease one's suicidality are ultimately pointless if there's no reason for lingering around in the first place. "here, these are some ways you can decrease your desire to walk out of this gay prison (from which you'll still eventually be dragged out against your will no matter you much you resist and struggle)." the best reason not to kill oneself is because it doesn't result in eternal non-existence. but if the goal is to escape specific circumstances, then even that is no reason against suicide.

I was a weak and troubled apprentice back then, felt my life had no meaning and that things will never get better, that combined with many health problems and childhood trauma clouded my vision. Now as a fully fledged wizard I can now understand better this wizard life.
Time can help us. Some of us can learn to forgive ourselves and accept things.
I try to motivate myself with anything that's available, and so I want to live and enjoy life with what little I have. Sure, my life is not normal and for some it might be a horrible deal, but it is my life. We should aim to appreciate our blessings no matter how little they are. It might not get easier but we can survive this life and form some good memories and when it's time to go, go with a smile and be thankful for the good memories.
I will never give up no matter how lonely or painful it gets because I've learnt acceptance. I've learnt about the human spirit to overcome challenges and mine is really strong.

normies don't want you to commit suicide because they need more wageslaves. This is why the only thing they do for suicidal people is prevent the act itself and nurse you back to life in case you attempt it, without really doing anything for the suffering they experience on a daily basis.
This is why they call it a selfish act.

Wizards, I again wish to draw attention to the dangerous pro-suicide echo-chamber this board has seemed to become. What is going on exactly? Someone states that they want to die, and immediately everyone just agrees with him? Why is this? Is this really what we are? Have we forgotten to extend gestures of hope and betterment to our own wizardly brothers? This place feels much darker to me than it used to. Look at the topics now commonly discussed on /dep/ : they are nearly all womanish/crabish topics without any substance pertaining to wizardry.

And what is the character of the help being offered by "professionals"? Practiced and tautological lies about succubi, about society, about the reasons for our sadness? SSRIs that permanently damage your brain by unnaturally interfering with serotoninergic and dopaminergic processes that for all of human history have never been interfered with in such a targeted and damaging way? Having the knowledge to change your diet (no gluten, no sugar, even no dairy) is something that many practiced "professionals" don't even consider. Schizophrenia has been shown to resolve following dietary changes; so too many severe forms of depression. Getting elementary exercise is helpful in all cases – even just walking in the sun once or twice a week. Accepting yourself (actually accepting yourself) is not something that psychiatrists even offer to teach, generally because they are w*o*men and w*o*men are fake and deeply malicious creatures who have no understanding of male "psychology" nor do they care to. We are trying to offer substantial help, you absolute retard; that is indeed the whole point of this thread, to at least try to offset the huge depressive weight of all the other threads on this board. And we are especially trying to offer substantial help to those that need it the most through the gifting of different pieces of knowledge, no matter how small.

I think it's a meme, and as most memes like no fap, it works the other way around.
That is, already neurotypical/normal dudes already feel good and have a decent nervous system and a fulfilling life, so they literally forget to fap, and can afford to eat healthy (read: bad-tasting) food.
If you are depressed, you NEED carbs, and you need to release a load occasionally, or you get even more depressed.

That said, there are different depressions. If you are depressed because you're a smart, self-aware pessimist, changing habits and taking drugs don't help. If you have clinical depression mostly due to neurological reasons, and not because your life actually objectively sucks, then anti-depressants, exercise, diet, and all that crap, can make you feel better, but I think that's not the case of people browsing here.

Don't worry too much about getting shit on OP. There are a significant amount of hostile users that aren't suicidal but try to provoke people here and elsewhere into suicide. They pose as fellow depressed wizards/anons/etc and encourage suicide, offer ways to get VAD and assisted suicide, and they operate discord servers for coordinating.

More than likely some of them are in this thread. Something you need to keep in mind is that if they were really so suicidal as to call you a faggot for just offering help in clearly marked thread (that no one has to click unless they want help), yet haven't killed themselves, then they are coming in order to get other people to commit suicide or to drive help away. I try to help people on other websites and get the same resistance, and I have found several of these groups (typically of a certain political leaning and sexual fetish) whose sole purpose is to get young men to commit suicide.

In a way it is, and most cultures historically viewed it that way. Even in Christianity, no matter how hard they try to throw off the shadow of Gnosticism, there is the idea that the world is corrupted, and only rejection of the world can yield happiness. The Greeks have a similar belief in the "Fall" where the son of Iapetos condemned mankind to suffering through his trick against Zeus.

However, there is still HOPE. The Greeks believed hope was left there with mankind, there is hope of Salvation to the Christians, Hindus, and Muslims, hope of Enlightenment to the Buddhists, and so on and so forth. Letting go of the various sorts of evils and holding on to hope alone is all that one has. Yeah there's a lot of suffering, but there are rivers and birds and enormous mountains, majestic things that strike one with awe at their sight. Hopeless ones cannot regain their hope without someone else, at least not easily. If you're hopeless, you need someone to break down your door, wrench you from your home, and show you the world. I think every suicidal person can be saved by love, as much as they would fight against it. No one is an island and can live without someone that loves them, or without people they love.

You'd have to be dragged kicking and screaming, or maybe totally limp and lifeless, down rivers and up mountains to see the rays of hope beaming forth between dark clouds and reflecting off every thing on the wide Earth. You can't see it yet, but that's because you're blinded by suffering. You need someone else to forcibly, physically, and in the real world, tear open your fused eyelids.
