I'm experiencing extreme distress from lonliness and heartbreak. I just don't know how to continue living like this. Has anyone here been feeling extremely depressed and started taking anti depressants and they stopped the constant negative thoughts and feelings?

      Have you ever had depression or taken anti depressants?

    Anti-depressants are certainly worth a try, though they won't actually resolve any of the problems that are making you feel bad and they may not even work. I've found that meditation actually works better for me than any medication I have tried; though it too seems to have its limits. Video games also offer distraction from negative thoughts.

    The fundamental problem is that all those things are ultimately just copes. They will treat the problem, but not cure it. Still, better to cope than brood over something that you have no real power to change. Just do whatever it takes to feel better. Make a list. If one thing is not working, try the next thing.

      Everyone’s biochemistry is different, so finding the right medication can be a challenge, and sometimes medication isn’t the best solution, but any doctor worth their salt will tell you that if they believe the anti-depressants won’t work for you. But yes, anti-depressants don’t solve your problem, but they subdue the symptoms to allow you to more easily respond and resolve the larger problems. It’s like taking a painkiller after an injury so you can get up to go to PT without overwhelming pain. Hard to answer the questions of “how do I come to terms with a death” or “how do I find more joy” when you’re crying constantly and uncontrollably. Meditation is a great therapeutic technique that can go hand-in-hand with meds if you need those. Either way I hope you feel better OP. I came back from a dark bad place so it’s possible.

    Heartbreak and loneliness eventually receded, it took about 10 years for me. I then had depression unrelated to those feelings and I concluded that I had a neural pathway deficiency through a chemical imbalance and took anti-depressants, the depression eventually became just a numbness but the drugs themselves were not actually the cause of this, it was just time and a developing immunity to the feelings/thought patterns.

    The anti-depressants never did do the job they were supposed to, you are supposed to feel better within months and no change of drug variety achieved this, just have patience perhaps, but do try the drugs because certain people respond well like my father who got less miserable and less angry because of sertraline.

    I suspect it depends on genetic disposition vs drug use in the past vs simple emotional imbalance brought on by life experience.

    Of these three options, here is the case-to-best-case scenario:
    1 worst: genetic predisposition
    2 medium: drug-induced chemical imbalance
    3 Best: emtional conflict that can be minimised with logical establishing of counterarguments over time.

    Tl;dr
    Drugs worked for my family members (2 of them) didn't work for me.

      Having said that, one thing that does work, but you cannot get it for depression, is valium.

      If you have self-control you can get valium illegally and take 10mg when you are at your worst to limit the effect on your neorological outlook. 1 every few days is fine.
      But you can become addicted and suffer in other ways if you take it constantly and do not wait days between.

      Valium cures anxiety, depression, and psychotic extremes for me. Nothing else except heroin does that, but it is not permanent.

      90% of people with depression are depressed because they are lonely.
      Broken families and broken communities, so people are alone.
      Drugs just numb the feelings, but don't solve the problem.

    I live in constant depression and loneliness, but don't take antidepressants, as they turn me into a zombie.
    Better face the sadness than being a zombie.
    At least with sadness you can build something useful. A tulpa for instance, or a deal with the powers of Hell, or simply shitposting.
    A zombie can't do anything. He simply breath, eat and shit.

    why are you unable to feel happiness and instill growth without requiring someone else?
    There are so many areas of growth and study that you could draw joy from but the fear of starting and the tenacity to unlock these wells of power require you to focus on your goals for longer than a few weeks. When is the last time you dedicated 6 months to studying something intently and improving on it every single day?

    you don't need other people to be happy
    but troubles with a lack of support net can lead to stress and excess suffering
    what is your real problem? What is the pattern of life that is suffocating you and causing the distress and loneliness?

      >why are you unable to feel happiness and instill growth without requiring someone else?

      I'm in the 30's and haven't been in a relationship for over 10 years. I feel like others have deep strong roots into communities and the area but my roots are shallow and weak due to no real family or friends group. I have been through several traumatic events and lost many love ones. Was moved around a lot through school, now I follow that pattern by cutting of friendships the moment it gets difficult. I tend to have schizo paranoid thinking and suffered from panic or schizophrenic attacks through my 20's. I just feel like I'm dumb or not doing enough when I'm not working so I turned into a workaholic. I have a tenseness and fear running through my body all the time. Constantly worrying about what others think, money, my safety and thinking every situation could go horribly wrong.

        this is making it a lot harder yes.
        >I have been through several traumatic events and lost many love ones.
        You seem to have a lot of problems stacking up and that does not serve your self, self image and covers your authentic lifeforce that then fails to manifest. Attracting relationships requires a deal of authenticity and stability.
        > I just feel like I'm dumb or not doing enough when I'm not working so I turned into a workaholic
        You are dumber in some areas and have strengths in others. Working hard is good sometimes but can also wear you down. Do you understand what triggers your brain? what tenses it and what relaxes it? When did you feel in a state of flow and when was that impossible?
        Working hard to cover your problems won't help much long-term, but physical exertion can for instance be used to advance your material conditions and silence an overactive mind. You do however need physical activity and mental activity for different purposes. If your work is physical: have a mental hobby. If your job is mentally tiring, take a physical one so you don't deplete both sources of energy.
        >I have a tenseness and fear running through my body all the time.
        >schizophrenic attacks
        >constantly worrying
        it sounds like your brain is and has been terribly overpressured. There is no magic bullet to improve your life, but try to attract and focus on activities that slow life down, that disconnect you from all areas where you experience pressure, encumbrance or overload.
        >cutting of friendships the moment it gets difficult
        not all friendships have to get difficult. You can also be friendly and present for connection. Help at a homeless shelter, focus on what other people in need need and make your presence known. You don't need to manage and invest in friendships to feel a sense of community and belonging.

    I've had depression most of my life, but have never taken medication in any form because I have always distrusted the medical establishment (even moreso now post 2019).
    I used to smoke weed. One time being galactic-level stoned was basically all it took to cure me permanently. I was viewing my thoughts like a passive 3rd party observer, and I had the realization that I was not my thoughts. I stopped smoking because it was affecting my teeth and gums...which I also cured with a regimen of natural products despite every dentist and website claiming that shouldn't be possible.

    Nope. Antidepressants just don't work. They don't make you feel better and they don't change your thoughts. They gatekeep real treatment behind it too.
    For you though idk if its neurological illness that would warrant that. Just see a psychologist. They don't prescribe anything

    You're not alone, Jesus loves you.
    Heartbreak is subjective. You can overcome it. Find affirmation in your brothers and sisters. You're loved and adored. Your life is precious, you are unique in the eyes of God. You can lift up others, never, ever; think you're incapable of doing that. Even your pain is a gift, use it. Gift others with that, which you desire. Love, love everyone so much it crushes them, and any doubts you or they have. We are the indomitable human spirit. I love you my brother, you're always welcome to my strength. Text on a Camel racing exchange forum may not mean much. But, faith will keep you strong and capable. Faith, even if only in yourself.

      Those feelings can be permanently turned on, keeping one in a state of perpetual anguish. It's important to practice meditation that centers one back to a state of inner peace.

    How much are you responsible for your loneliness and pain, and how much of it is dictated by a tale you tell yourself about who you are and what you're doing in here? We do put ourselves in the shoes of the loser for protection, and because it makes sense when life seems to be a set of punches to the face.

    May I encourage you to study the topic of resilience.

    >Resilience: the ability to be happy, successful, etc. again after something difficult or bad has happened (source: Cambridge dictionary)

    Resiliency can be learned; therefore do not despair but have faith in God and he will strengthen you.

    >Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

    >...for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:11-13

    I suffer from chronic anxiety, depression and have adhd. basically I'm a mess lol. but I have made my life extremely better by maintaining a system that 100% works, you just have to stick it out for at least 4-5 months, every day. I have tried and failed a few times, but just keep trying because it's so worth it.
    1. Go to a good therapist - once you find one look for root causes to all your suffering, and how to teat it. it's up to you to participate though
    2. Get medication - Controversial around these parts, I know, but anti-depressants have helped my baseline be "ok" and not "suicidal", and that alone is worth it
    3. exercise - This one is just as important as the other two, if not more. Daily exercise will do wonders to you in the long term, and as soon as you stop for more than a day or two I definitely feel it, so it motivates me to keep it going
    Those are the essential big three, but the other things I do is to do outside activities every day, have a healthy diet, avoid junk food, avoid social media and try for the love of god to always be present and not get super deep into my thoughts

    Anti-depressants = numb the pain, but slowly destroy your connection with reality. Might as well just drink alcohol and play video games for an escape.

    The brain is designed that you need social connections, and this is the real source of much of your feelings probably. Even having a 9-5 job where you shit talk with co-workers for 20 minutes a day should be enough to alay most of those feelings.

    Isolation = death. Unless you're a monk and need time alone to practice.

    hello cousin, i've been a melancholic since puberty, trust me I get it. SSRI's, SNRI's, close to a dozen different kinds over 15 years. Some of them help but do have side effects. the heartbreak comes from hopes dashed, the loneliness from a need for validation in a world that does not care... let it all go... if you need to start over and recreate yourself, do so... I would suggest stepping outside yourself. create your "character" on paper, read books on socializing and psychology, go to the gym, pursue that vision. Let the opinions, wants, and wishes of others go. Stop seeking validation and chase something of your own design. To hell with their expectations, those are their own designs and they are no more valid than your own. Remember that. Who tf are they to tell you who to be? Frick them

      i just try to snap myself out of it. i think a lot of adults not in relationships often experience loneliness. i try to talk to people and have parasocial relationships and experience the euphoria and despair of truing to meet and bond with new people but there are a lot of logistical challenges. many old people often start social lives again after two decades of preparing for retirement. try watching motivational and psychology oriented content. i honestly think a few andrew tate clips and healthygamergg did a lot for me, and i think they're both manipulative money grubbing sociopaths, but they have a lot of truth to sell which is all we can ask of our gurus, but spit out the poison. swallow both pills and you will see they taste the same anon. there is merely a colored coating of red or blue.

    I haven't read this thread but antidepressants in my case just makes me numb to all feelings. I feel no anger, happiness and barely feel any sense of fear. It's existing but not being fully human. I stopped them but nothing returned. In my case the complex interaction between environment and biology left me a hollow human. I can't even feel sorry for myself.

    you need to really think about the future and antidepressants won't really do that for you. you might function better and ignore the past. Lexapro works pretty good. But, you need to really start to take hold on what you do with your time, don't spend it being sad. Being sad is a privilege you have until the money runs out and you can't pay rent. When you can't pay rent is when things are bad. You get a job you don't even want and it goes bad and you get another one that's even worse.

    So, with what little motivations and abilities you have right now save your future self, not from what has already happened, but from what results if you allow depressed you to add another six months or years to your problems you already have. It might not get a lot better but being sad makes things even worse.

    Yeah it works. You will numb yourself and life will be easier. You will experience artificial happiness. You might gain the strength to change the situation that caused you to feel depressed too. You might also not care enough to once you're comfortable and artificially happy. Just know that your current life situation is not conducive to happiness and that is why you're depressed.
