Lately i feel tired and bored of everything i do. Nothing seems interesting. I spend whole days at home not going out. I lost a lot of friends and all I do is binge watching anime and reading manga. I have no problem with doing it but sometimes i feel like going out and talk to people but i lack confidence and it is strange to go and introduce myself to people, in my country they'll think that i have mental issues :( sorry if this sounds stupid in some way

get hobbies that aren't solitary, physical exercise helps, a proper diet helps, a proper sleeping schedule helps.
Rekindle old friendships or make new ones if the old ones aren't an option.
For the most part, just don't stay inside all day.

You can do it!

is it clinical? and how severe? because if its severe there is a new psychedelic drug approved by the FDA of USA already although its still expensive

there are also microdosing of this psychedelics that even some businesses do to their employees but check your psychiastrists first if they are doing that in your area

there are two options.

Option one: get therapy, take medicine, get a job or go back to school, socialize, date a woman or a man or anything in between, harvest a good relationship with your parents and siblings, get a pet to make you feel comfy at home, clean your house and fertilize your garden, smoke some weed and take walks around your village regularly.

Option two: cease out of life.

I usually just watch something I think is funny. A lot of times this is good enough to get me out of a bad mood.

I personally am saved from depression by excitement, that is, a good casino. Nowadays, there is much to choose from. Or good brandy, but you can combine brandy with a casino. I play here if that click site, I can teach, contact.

Day to day rotate between lifting weights and doing cardio; exercising is scientifically proven to generate endorphins that on a chemical level help pull your brain and body out of Depression. Getting more sunlight as well as more in person human interaction is also very important. Finally, whatever your current job is you should be ambitiously pursuing progression in your career OR if you're in a dead end job that doesn't allow for that ambitiously pursue a side hobby or side business that you enjoy and can possibly turn into a career one day. Or if you're still in school, honestly nothing else you're doing matters right now other than studying your ass off 24/7 so that you can get straight As in as many Honors/AP courses you can realistically handle so that you can go off to a good college in a good major in order to set your life on a strong path. In regards to interacting with others, unfortunately there's no trick. Confidence is all a mental state, fake it till you make it. Everybody else is too and what's the worst that can happen? Some people who will remain strangers will have momentarily seen you as a bit over enthusiastic and then immediately forget about you? Just gotta put yourself out there. Anyway, hopefully this helps.

There is only ONE SOLUTION: Go to a psychologist. They studied to help people with anxiety, depression, etc. Let them do their job.

Just change your way of thinking. What's wrong with marathoning anime and manga? Good stories are experiences that stay with you. Some even help shape who you are.

Make a couple of buddies on here, and just talk with them when you're feeling lonely.

That's difficult I recommend seeking professional help and maybe getting some prescriptions. That's what I did in the past anyway. Also watching K-ON helps too.

Setting goals for yourself, and completing them can diminish depressed thoughts. Also just getting away from negative thoughts that are more depressive in nature by reading (manga, books, etc.) or spending so much time exercising can both be ideal ways to lessen depressed feelings.

There's also another number of ways, such as eating healthier food-choices. I usually just read manga to keep depressed thoughts at bay.

I sometimes go to public parks on the weekend, can't help feeling a bit more positive when surrounded by lively atmosphere. Morning jog also works for me, I tried to make it a weekly habit and create small light goals like 'try to do 5 laps in 30 minutes' just as a reason to do it, because if I don't make goals I would immediately go home for whatever reasons, I'm lazy like that, haha.

Being tired and bored doesn't necessarily mean that you are depressed. Maybe you aren't used to doing nothing which is kinda understandable in this day and age. And you've experienced too much of certain activities to the point that you no longer find them interesting.

Anyway, try to change something is the best advice I can give you.

dont smoke weed and dont suicide. relying on drugs and ending your life are terrible options, especially if you are depressed

I'd probably look into it more to see if this is an actual case of depression.

So many times people will think they have depression or they are bipolar because they exhibit a characteristic of it.

A depression is simple to get out of just do something productive. Now depression is not simple or easy. From my understanding, you never get out. Have to constantly fight it, see a therapist and all that.

i used to drink something with caffeine in it, usually black tea. these days the anxiety it gives me is too strong i think.

Honestly, no. Medicine should never be some kind of a "first easy solution", most so called depressed people don't actually benefit from them. In this day and age especially young people get feelings of depression from very simple things like not being social enough, maybe drinking too much, using social media/games too much and overall lacking purpose/meaningful things to do. Bingewatching anime or gaming too much creates this unenergetic, meh feeling and that in turn makes you less likely to have the energy or motivation to even try and do anything. Its truly a vicious cycle. It's hard to break bad habits when you've made yourself lack energy to begin with.

for me it is trying to forget about the three orphans whose parents were perished in a terrible fire and their tragic story with no happy ending, no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle.

that you’re off the hook

i think this question is complex. there isn’t really one way to live in order to be happy. if there was, we’d be robots programmed to live in one way. it would be like saying: “all occupations are suited for everyone, and all occupations will make everyone happy”. we know this isn’t entirely true. what works for one, doesn’t mean that it works for everyone.

there are an infinite amount of factors to consider what makes one actually happy, some of which may be contrary to common wisdom. and i think the answer can be found within you. what do you like? what do you dislike? ultimately, trial and error will help you figure it out. at least, that’s what i think.

whenever i’m in a depressive mood, i’m always in the search of something that will improve it, an evolutionary trait. i tend to think more when depressed, thinking about what i can do to be happy or at least relieve the pressures of it.

do something different. do something that isn’t typical of yourself. you get stuck by sticking with what’s familiar. you’ll never grow that way. maybe expand your interests ouside of your current hobbies? go on daily scheduled walks. learn how to deal with the pain of being uncomfortable.

i also would recommend: exercise, reading books of your interests, journaling, cold showers, solitary walks (already mentioned), cutting stress (environment/people/anything external) and fasting. fasting is definitely something to tinker around with, but in my experience is fun and worth doing. it’s also a lot easier for me to think while fasting.

tldr seek your own answers, change things around

Depression is best tackled with science as depression is a biological phenomena. It is your body trying to tell you that something is wrong, and you need to fix it.

If you do things that will make you happy like working out, eating right, being responsible and progressing life in some way, then you will become happy. If you lie there and wait to "go back to normal", you'll find yourself in the same position again and again.

Although it is hard sometimes, try and find something that you're really interested in or something you've been undecided on and just give it a try, it can really help you get out and discover new things that you'll enjoy! Another thing I found with depression is just talking to people about it and letting shit out (its awesome that you've posted on here) though try and talk to people close to you about it, that was the kick start for me getting better, time is an amazing healer. You can do it :)

This is very true.
Honestly, if you go outside just for a walk, or a drive someone and go out for just an hour, it makes a difference. Nature itself can play a big role. This has worked for me personally.

Take psylocybn
This randomized, double-blind, cross-over trial investigated the effects of a very low (placebo-like) dose (1 or 3 mg/70 kg) vs. a high dose (22 or 30 mg/70 kg) of psilocybin administered in counterbalanced sequence with 5 weeks between sessions and a 6-month follow-up.

At 6-month follow-up, these changes were sustained, with about 80% of participants continuing to show clinically significant decreases in depressed mood and anxiety. Participants attributed improvements in attitudes about life/self, mood, relationships, and spirituality to the high-dose experience, with >80% endorsing moderately or greater increased well-being/life satisfaction.

These were people with termimal illnesses. Note: they paired the drug with a therapist to guide the patients so results will vary if you have a bad trip going solo.

listen to old ass dance music more cringe the better
at least you'll be crying at the discoteque

I mean i got depression too so idk either
but 80-90s music just helps me get out of sudden depressed thoughts
especially when i am in public space and really don't want to start bawling cause my brain decided to bring on the depresso

exercise is also good even if its just taking a walk outside it can make you feel less closed off

go talk with friends, exercise, find a new hobby, basically make yourself busy so that you don't think with it. Also if that doesn't help, try contacting a local psychologist or psychiatrist.

currently going through the process of dealing with severe clinical depression myself.

what's working for me so far though;
- seeing a psychologist/psychiatrist
- spending time with people in general
- start exercising
- not being too much of a shut-in (although im kind of guilty of being one still)
- knowing i have people who care about me
- developing interests/hobbies

It took time for me to rekindle previous friendships (although it was mostly thanks to help of my girlfriend) and all it takes is a push and motivation to go through with contacting them.

Most recently, setting goals for myself (sleeping early, better diet, do more physical activity, being better in relationship) has motivated me a lot to strive to get through this despite how draining it can be. However, what works for me may not work for you, but it doesn't hurt to try different things as in the end it could help you. Other suggestions in this thread could work also ^__^

Wish you the best !
