      Some research I found on anti-depressants efficacy and comparisons with placebo. Worth a read.
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4172306/ 
       From Harvard
      Antidepressants and the Placebo Effect
      Even the small statistical difference between antidepressants and placebos may be an enhanced placebo effect, due to the fact that most patients and doctors in clinical trials successfully break blind. The serotonin theory is as close as any theory in the history of science to having been proved wrong. Instead of curing depression, popular antidepressants may induce a biological vulnerability making people more likely to become depressed in the future.

      The most commonly prescribed antidepressants are SSRIs, drugs that are supposed to selectively target the neurotransmitter serotonin. But there is another antidepressant that has a very different mode of action. It is called tianeptine, and it has been approved for prescription as an antidepressant by the French drug regulatory agency. Tianeptine is an SSRE, a selective serotonin reuptake enhancer. Instead of increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain, it is supposed to decrease it. If the theory that depression is caused by a deficiency of serotonin were correct, we would expect to make depression worse. But it doesn’t. In clinical trials comparing the effects of tianeptine to those of SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants, 63% of patients show significant improvement (defined as a 50% reduction in symptoms), the same response rate that is found for SSRIs, NDRIs, and tricyclics, in this type of trial (Wagstaff, Ormrod, & Spencer, 2001). It simply does not matter what is in the medication – it might increase serotonin, decrease it, or have no effect on serotonin at all. The effect on depression is the same.
      What do you call pills, the effects of which are independent of their chemical composition? I call them “placebos.”

      Antidepressants versus placebo in major depression: an overview
      As of now, antidepressant clinical trials have an effect size of 0.30, which, although similar to the effects of treatments for many other chronic illnesses, such as hypertension, asthma and diabetes, is less than impressive.

      Comparative benefits and harms of second-generation antidepressants for treating major depressive disorder: an updated meta-analysis.
      Meta-analyses and mixed-treatment comparisons of response to treatment and weighted mean differences were conducted on specific scales to rate depression. On the basis of 234 studies, no clinically relevant differences in efficacy or effectiveness were detected for the treatment of acute, continuation, and maintenance phases of MDD.

      Omega 3's are mentioned a lot for there importance for brain health. Vitamin D can also pass the blood-brain barrier, so it should be investigated for mental health also. I drove over some papers on vitamin D and depression since yesterday, so I will share some of those here. Depression impacts quality of life and it is usually implicated to be self-caused. According to science, depression can be biological, therefore depression is not always a lack of spiritual perspective or a case of "bad" vibes. My conclusion from these papers is that most cases of depression are very situational. Vitamin D deficiencies are not rare, and can potentially have a healing affect with some cases, similar to anti-depressants. The optimal ways to get vitamin D in my opinion, is sunshine and mushrooms. I would stay away from raw mushrooms due to carcinogens reported in the literature. heat destroys them though. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2132000

      Efficacy of vitamin D supplementation in depression in adults: a systematic review protocol
      "The efficacy of vitamin D supplementation in depression has raised lots of concern. Vitamin D is considered as a neurosteroid [56], and now it is attested that vitamin D metabolites can cross the blood–brain barrier [34]. Because of the widespread presence of vitamin D receptor in areas of the brain including the hippocampus which is associated with the development of depression [23], it could be speculated that there is a clinical effect of vitamin D on depression."
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26680471
      Vitamin D in anxiety and affective disorders.
      "Reduced levels of vitamin or its metabolites have been reported in various psychiatric disorders. Insufficient levels of vitamin D in depressive patients have been confirmed by many authors. Significantly lower levels of calcidiol (vitamin D) were found in men and women with depression as well as in age matched patients with anxiety disorders.
      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25713056
      Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior.
      "Serotonin regulates a wide variety of brain functions and behaviors. Here, we synthesize previous findings that serotonin regulates executive function, sensory gating, and social behavior and that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior all share in common defects in these functions. It has remained unclear why supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D improve cognitive function and behavior in these brain disorder"

      I took hppd about 2 months ago and ever since I’ve been very aware of what I’m seeing. Like at night when I’m in the car driving, I’m not sure if it’s been there before but street lights or any sort of light kinda has a glare to it, like very shiny and has like a glow to it. I’ve noticed that when I look at the moon. There’s another moon next to it but half of the size, like a glare. I suck at explaining but am I getting hppd or is all this normal? I’ve been stressing over This for a while now and I’m going to a psychologist to get checked out. 
       
      I forgot to mention that I only taken lsd once. I’ve only smoked weed before .

I am glad some one posted on this! The tinnitus has been bothering me but the doctor doesn't believe it is anything serious in my case. Usually just keeps me awake for a while if I notice it. But that occasional "cranial zing" was driving me mad because I didn't know how to explain it or how to even word it until I read it here.

Don't we have bigger issues than arguing about fucking grammar?

 

Get a grip people, the last thing I want to do is ever ban someone, but this bullshit will ruin the forum and make it a place that scares off new people.

 

Seriously, put an end to this.

Idiotic nonsense about new age charlatans could scare people off too. It's all relative.

 

And I don't appreciate being threatened and spoken to in that tone of voice. Even from you, Jay.

No one was threatening YOU.... I was making a blanket statement on this type of behaviour.

 

Do you think I WANT to be an admin? Do you think I want to spend part of my day getting rid of spam and trying to weigh up which posts to delete, when they reported? Do you think i'm enjoying this morning, getting involved in this petty nonsense?

 

I'm trying to help David, who is busy trying to find a cure for you guys. Do the same.

Couldn't agree more. It's ruining several otherwise helpful threads.

All I'm advocating - and have been advocating all along - is that everyone:

  • refrains from belittling the symptoms of others
  • refrains from derailing threads by posting utter nonsense.

Maybe I could have been more diplomatic, but I do admit that it gets on my nerves. This forum is a veritable goldmine - interesting thoughts and ideas are posted here every day. To see thread after thread derailed by the same person(s) is quite frustrating!

I guess Chris is "Squabbling" again about people standing up for themselves to him.. What a joke and a waste of time to people who have a life. Chris stop wasting peeps time with ur exasperating interlocutor ways and peeps like u shouldn't throw rocks when u live in a glass house.

I didn't run and report u I honestly thought we were men and we could deal with it respectfully to be honest. Straight.. I seriously can't believe u did that man?? Talk about taking the hi road?? "Do as I say not as I do" that's horrible man for real.

< Jay I would never waste ur time with these type of mindlessly rhetorical messages like Christopher Columbus and his side kick write on this board and to u.. Respect.. Hppdjusttryingtofitin..

What absolute sycophantic rubbish. How can you even think that sounds even remotely believable? You are resorting to name calling in the exact same sentence!

 

The sole reason we're discussing this is because you persist in posting nonsense in otherwise great threads. To quote odisa from another recent thread:

 

hppd24years; I'm not sure what your intentions are with that gibberish, though it's not contributing to anything good. If it's an attempt at mocking this thread, then the least you could do is constructively criticize the ideas proposed and discussed, so that we can all benefit.

Listen StateofRegret when u point ur finger at someone ironically enough u have three of ur own fingers pointing back at u!!

This form is not a train soooo...

> There is no such thing as derailing.

Secondly this form does not have Everlast written on its back..

> Stop punching it please.

Thirdly we are all in the same book here..

> People have the right to write their own chapters of experiences without being governed or disrespected by others in what they expect u to write under their interpretations of verse. (It's called diversity)

For most for fourthly there seems to be a super sensitivity amongst certain peeps on here in regards to comments. I would like to recommend maybe private messaging would be appropriate in regards to disputes or challenges so we are not airing out our dirty laundry on here for visitors to see..

> That way new comers wont get scared or apprehensive about this site and will get a good impression of Chris and his sidekick (who I believe wants to remain annoyingly anonymous;) Totally kidding Chris; I don't want my own three fingers pointing back at me thanks!!

Wow that's quite the biased remark from u..

Let me elaborate a bit before ur judgment please:

StateofRegret has been impeding the comments i make with a bullying governing type of a approach on how to write my beliefs or personal thoughts. I originally suggested I felt a bit of an infringement towards my freedom of speech on here from him specifically. Then it has escalated into reporting and verbal misconduct accompanied by a whole array of philosophical defecation throughout the whole ordeal. StateofRegret and I were some what resolving the issue in the private message mode but I guess from his omissions he took it to another method by reporting me. I find it offensive for someone who thinks of themselves as higher statue so they can belittle others by almost fulfilling some weird gratification inside of them. Do u think someone should tell u how to topic ur headings or write ur thoughts out to their discretion or perspective?? Then blatantly say it has no depth or meaning?? That's fascist thinking do u give that a standing ovation??

Let me just make one thing clear; I derive no joy from this. Actually, it has been affecting my mood quite negatively, and I would never have gone into this discussion if it wasn't for the fact that I care very much about this forum, and that it saddens me to see fine threads ruined time and time again.

 

(Unrelated: Quoting posts which already contain quotes works really poorly here! :P

It's called a solution why do u keep reaching for a third party?? Ur trying to compound our discrepancies with ur hidden agendas.. StateofRegret we are all adults here are we not?? You specifically attacked me I countered.. Then we were handling it in private message mode like ADULTS AND MEN.. Then apparently u felt apologetic and said u took me the wrong way. Then u went underhandingly behind my back and ratted me out like a coward. U attacked me I'm the victim here trying to stand up for myself now I can see ur true colors. Please take a look at ur messages towards mine when I'm trying to come up with solutions for the integrity of this board u call it trolling or farce?? What type of rational conduct is that??? Seriously I can't believe what u did and the distance u will go to methodically making this into complete madness.. This situation is over fabricated beyond reality..

Here is another solution StateofRegret leave me alone stop bullying me in regards to trying to control me in my incidental comments please and thank u the rest will be self explanatory.. Hppd24years..

Nobody is the victim, this is not a fight, stop pretending that it is. Kick back, take a breather. I am not attacking you, never have been. You should know perfectly well what my agenda is by now: more relevant information, less derailing of threads. End of story. I have no other hidden agenda, nothing. The rest is merely paranoia or over-interpretation.

I feel if there was any sincerity remotely from ur snickers you would be a man and address me or fundamentally come up with solutions in a more authentic way than this.. "Poor me" isn't a solution StateofRegret it's a tactical technique of ur persona. Maybe considering ur credentials u could come up with a more practical approach then this oxymoron ur fronting.. This is my last comment towards u and all this disarray. I will ask and maintain; Please do not bully me anymore with ur mockery of how I write or everything I say has no important values. That is my settlement in this synopses. Hopefully u can come to terms with it and comply. Hppd24years.

I'm not sure what you're asking. A solution? A solution to what exactly?

The way ahead seems pretty clear to me; you don't fill threads with gibberish, I won't complain about it. Problem solved.

 

Regarding the "tactical technique of my persona" [what the hell?], I have no idea what you're talking about. Paranoia, dude.

 

Have a good day :)

Can't see this getting any better, so locking it.... If you want to carry on with the original topic, post a new thread and keep it civil.

 

Really hoped I never have to do this on here.
