that makes your mind race, lose sleep, and (generally) not eat healthy is no good for depression. Trust me. Overthinking things to the extreme of not coming up with anything useful just makes you worry more. Your body needs sleep for normal brain function and health. If your brain isn't working at a level that it should, emotions get more whacky. The vitamins and natural substances in a normal healthy meal help to keep brain chemicals balanced. I prefer the feeling of slowing the brain down and relaxing when depressed (naturally and otherwise). Being anxious doesn't mix with depression.
Not a fan of that kind of drug when depressed. Especially if the person doesn't have anything else to do. Chemicals shouldn't be used as temporary escapes from real problems. Many would prefer to smoke some weed
if they were stressed or down. Meth
comedown can be brutal depending on the timing and if you're able to comfortably crash. That on top of depression would make most people feel horrible. As a general guideline, my goldfish won't do any drugs
that he feels like he "needs" to do. Like after a long day of work "I need a beer", or sitting in traffic "ugh, i need a cigarette". It's kept him pretty level for a while now. He'll do those things, but when he actually says or thinks it because of an unrelated situation (traffic, stress, depression)...he knows that he's just making an excuse to do it.
It's easy to get caught up in a cycle. Depressed, tweak, get stuck and not work on changing what made you depressed in the first place. More shit falls apart, causing more stress and depression... Which makes you want to get up again. It's not just meth, but eating, gambling, alcohol
, shopping. When people do these things in excess, it's normally because of another problem that they're escaping. Figure out the root of your depression and tackle it with every cell in your body.
