So, /a/.

How do you deal with your depression and anxiety?
>>
Personally, I find that thinking about my waifu can be calming at times.
>>
By watching chinese high school girl cartoons.
>>
By posting in shitty threads like this.
>>
I beat up my girlfriend.
>>
I smoke weed everyday
>>
How do you deal with the fact that you'll never be a popular, attractive high schooler with lots of friends?
>>
>>100726140
By shitposting on /a/ and lying to myself
>>
Valium, masturbation, chinese cartoons
>>
Video games, gym, masturbation.
>>
>>100726140
Meds, video games and copious amounts of alcohol.
>>
Exercise, sex.
>>
I don't
>>
I don't have anxiety and I got over my 3year depression by my self.

All is good.
>>
I don't. I just ignore my problems by blasting my brain with anime and videogames at all times.
>>
by concentrating on my studies and learning japanese in my free time.. I barely watch anime right now
>>
I directly target my problems to improve myself.

I've been whitening my teeth, I've gained 15lbs in 1 month, I've reviewed, researched and selected my hygiene products of choice to follow through with a strict regime of cleanliness. I've purchased better fitting clothes more fitting of a generic class styling.

I have good genes though, so I have a hopeful framework. I've just beaten my body to shit. I don't know what a naturally ugly person would do. The world is shit.
>>
Drugs and alcohol, just like everyone else OP.
>>
dota 2
>>
i blog about it on an anime board
>>

>'ve reviewed, researched and selected my hygiene products of choice to follow through with a strict regime of cleanliness.
OP here. I've been doing self improvement things too... care to elaborate on your hygiene products?
>>

I haven't. I basically spend most days feeling like shit and doing nothing except listening to music

what they said
>>
>>100726753
How do people seriously play this?

I've giving it a go, and thought it was fun while learning to do stuff, but after that, it's just grind grind grind.
>>
>>100727000
>grind
the hell are you playing?
>>
>>100726140
How do i know that i'm in depression?
>>
>>100727030
Shit, that was probably the wrong word.

I just meant going through the same motions again, I just find the lack of ever going anywhere boring.
>>
H
>>
Exercising, pain and hormones help.
>>
>>100726140
sleeping during the day
>>
>>100727073
Go play something like Starcraft then, much more demanding to play.
>>
>>100727111
>pain

how exactly?
>>
Constantly reassuring myself everything will be okay half the time and contemplating suicide the rest
>>
Chinese cartoons and video games.

Still hits me every now and then though.
>>
>>100727042
You stare at your ceiling for whole day, don't eat, shit in your bed and try to figure out whether it'd be better to kill yourself or it'd be too much work.
>>
>>100727194
Oh and yeah, this too on top of video games and chinese cartoons.
>>
>>100727182
If I knew. It just feels good when I am totally exhausted and my whole body aches.
>>
i like to read/watch superman comics/cartoons
>>
>>100726689

You still have an ugly face so all your self-improvement is bullshit.
>>
>>100726792
Well, I just went over and autism'd everything, found out what best sellers were on amazon, read lots of reviews, what was best for my budget etc.

I ended up with:

>Shampoo:
Suave Men's 2in1 shampoo+conditioner, sometimes I use Head & Shoulders if my hair is dry

Hair gel: American Crew (I have a short caesar cut)

Face exfoliant: St Ives fresh apricot scrub
Face wash: Cera-Ve foaming facial cleanser

Toothpaste: Crest 3D whitening
Tooth bleaching: $0.99 molded trays with 36% carbamide peroxide

Moisturizer: Glysomed hand cream

Shaving: Gillette fusion / Gillette foam, then I run a dry pass over with a panasonic electric razor
Aftershave: Gillette stuff that came with the razor

I match my deodorant and body wash so smells don't conflict - I use Old Spice swagger for both

I have to go to work now so I can't detail much, but that's mostly it. I do lots of other little things like put baking soda in my shoes to keep smell away. Nobody will notice but it sure makes me feel good being 'complete' before going out the door.
>>
I don't leave the house and watch chinese cartoons and play hearthstone all day.
>>
By doing something to improve myself.

Doesn't have to be something that other people necesarilly respect, for instance I'm trying to improve at Dota 2 (Only 4k mmr at the minute), something I personally find enjoyable because it's competitive. Other than that I'm also attempting to learn Japanese, getting better at programming and whatever else.

I really want to start exercising properly too, but I always get nervous when I think about going to the gym for the first time. That's something I'm going to have to work at getting over, because it bothers the fuck out of me that I can't just up and walk in there confidently.
>>
>>100727318
Actually, I've been told I look like Keanu Reeves. By random people online, and by the 16yo I lost my virginity to.

I have good genes, but I've treated my skin like shit, fed my body shit, never went into the sun, starved my body of water, and so on. Mostly I abused my teeth.
>>
>>100727400
You sound like you're making too much of an effort.
>>
I don't. I basically spend time thinking about if I'm really depressed or just a weak bitch. Though I'm pretty sure it's more anxiety than depression.
I wonder when my view of the future changed from something positive to something negative that I fear. I remember how a few years ago I used to look forward to the future when all my problems would be magically fixed. I'd have a job I enjoyed and not be anxious about things. Maybe I'd start socializing more and generally behave more like a normal person and not spend all my time alone. Now that I'm here in the future I've realized that time won't make things better or change me; That I'll probably be like this for the rest of my life. Thinking back it's laughable how I'd ever believed things would change by themselves.
>>
>>100727265
do you have a six pack?
>>
>>100726140

By forgetting it or ignoring it. I do that by focusing on fantasy(watching films, anime, tv shows, playing video games, masturbation)
>>
I really don't get this whole depression thing. Everything's easy to rationalize for me, I'll be dead before I know it anyway so why not have fun instead of moping around all day.
>>
>>100726140
Apathy

Learn to not care anymore you faggots. A week of forcibly ignoring everything bad will truly let you ignore it without trying.
>>
>>100727618
I have 8 pack.
>>
>>100726140
Anime and Video Games
>>
No depression; I've just been posting on 4chan for so many hundreds of hours that I seem crazy to people I see in person. Makes it uncomfortable to do anything but post more.
>>
Fuck off

I used to be a normal with girlfriends but I wasn't happy like that. Now I've been a hikki for 8 years and.never been happier in my life

Eating nice food and anime, I only get anxiety and feel bad if I'm around other people.

Being by yourself, and not around other people does wonders. You aren't self-conscious when you are by yourself and you don't have to deal with people.

Depends on the day.
Certain high quality foods definitely help. Personally I like to have: Coffee, tea, chocolate, nuts, various cheeses, and alcohol.
Exercise is probably one of the best things to do. Those natural highs you get after a workout are fantastic.
Sleep used to be my favorite salvation, but now I have nightmares every night and wake up multiple times.

>how davido-kun is born
>>
no depression, just stress from school.i really need to stop spending so much time on the computer and hit the books.
>>
Prozac and weed. Shit's magical.
>>
I listen to the Nichijou ED.
>>
>>100728516
The fact that you're spending more time at the computer means that you're unhappy with your studies.
If you liked your study subject you would want to know more about it.
>>
After a decade you just get to used to feel depressed.
>>
Masturbation and day dreaming.
>>
>>100728589
The art in the ED is so cute. It always cheers me up.
>>
Weed.
>>
>>100728560
I don't like anti-depressants. It feels dystopian.
>>
Constant distractions like everyone else; anime, video games, guitar, skateboarding, sleeping.
I really am a boring person, every activity i like is solitary.
>>
feel like i never really get over it, just momentary distractions (video games mostly, anime, streams etc.) doesn't make me particularly happy just not feeling like shit. but right after my life sucks again.
>>
>>100726753
This and drinking its the only thing to do now that I am no longer fully employed Thanks Obama
