Depression

Recommended Posts

Been off of games for 7 weeks now, and man am I feeling depressed.

My life is totally fine, nice house, nice family, nice car and other things.  No money problems.

But I am struggling to fill the time in.  Everything is just unappealing right now.

Just have to work through it I guess.

Cam that's a really good talk.  Hard to believe he was 19 when he did that.

Very wise words from a young man.

Thanks for recommending it Cam.

Thanks guys.

I'm feeling a lot better now.

Went and saw the GP.

For years now I've been taking a thing called 5-HTP which is a supplement which helps produce serotonin.  I was feeling so good I reduced my dose... and hey presto 4-6 weeks later I felt like crap.

Started taking it again and 10-14 days later I feel fine.

So it may have been that.  Perhaps along with giving up games of course.

@Maddog will have a lot of great thoughts to share on this subject!

I love 5-HTP - although sometimes the vivid dreams are a bit too much for me. Are you taking Vitamin D? If not, I take 5000 IU of that each day and it makes a huge difference for my depression/anxiety levels.
