My experience with depression has been a sliding scale from the jump. When I was on pharmaceuticals such as Depakote and Zyprexa, I had deep depression due to an overwhelming lack of drive. I was eating everything in the house and feeling sorry for myself because I was gaining so much weight and I couldn’t stop. I was no longer the bright and happy eighteenth year old boy my family and friends knew. I did nothing, and felt miserable. I couldn’t have cared less if I had lived or died at that point.
After coming off pharmaceuticals using alternative, holistic medicine, I then found a different form of depression. The kind that wakes you up in despair, only to say “you should just go back to sleep”.
There are two components to this, and if done properly, depression and anxiety don’t stand a chance because you’ll be able to pop out of it as fast as it creeps up.
The “secret” is exercise (bleh… I know, but wait) and an endorphin pack in the morning. Endorphins are endogenous opioid neuropeptides and peptide hormones in the human and animal brain. Yes, I did say “opioid”, but please don’t go shooting dope expecting to cure your depression. When endorphins are released in the body, though, it does have a similar feeling to that of morphine. They diminish pain, act as a sedative, and contrary to morphine, they don’t become addictive.
One “Endorphin Pack” in the morning, combined with as little as 20 minutes of exercise later in the day was enough to pull me out of depression immediately. But, for me, since bi-polar 1 includes mania, I only took it for a 3 day period to pull me out of the gutter and into the sunlight. Taking endorphin packs excessively could lead to a manic episode for someone suffering with bi-polar 1. For the most part though, they are completely safe to take and will work wonders for you!
