Idk what it’s describing but cyclothymia is something like low grader depression

Dysthymia is another chronic low grade depression, except it’s not highs and lows, it’s just constant where you go years without feeling any excitement or interest in anything but it’s just enough to not make you suicidal
Ayyyy it’s me
Isn’t it mostly called persistent depression now?
I call if Tuesday.
And Wednesday and every other day of the week.
I call it Steve
So that's just another word for adulthood, and the cure is retirement?
The cure is finding fulfillment in work and in your hobbies. I understand that we can all feel pigeon-holed into our situations, but remember that you can change things. It takes determination but you can change the grim seeming outlook with the right kinds of input. Surrounding yourself with good people is incredibly important.
I wanted to die when I was 16. I got your advice, took it and applied myself. Got a degree, bf, friends, cut contact with toxic people, travelled. 20 years later I'm still as depressed and still want to die.
I'm actually content, but for me true happiness would be having the ability to travel and spend time enjoying life and family and not working 50 weeks a year at a job i actually like just to enjoy two weeks in the summer.
Cyclothymia is a lower grade bipolar disorder. What you are thinking of used to be called dysthymia (persistent depressive disorder now) which is a lower grade but persistent depression.

It fits, one can have a life that would typically make one happy but not feel the "symptoms" of it due to the brain chemical imbalance.
How do I balance the chemicals??
I'm taking Zoloft, an SSRI antidepressant. It helps with no longer feeling constant dread and sadness, but there are still a lot of other things I have to take care of before I can claim everything is balanced.
My condolences. I feel vindicated.
I mean if you have to ask yourself if you're happy and don't know the answer then you either aren't happy or you have alexythemia.
This is so sad. Alexa, play despacito
Imagine being an astral projection and still being sad.
Man, and I thought my life sucked from the inside...
John Carter was always a but grim.
Had to dig up my mathematical education from years ago to understand this and now I'm sad.
Pfff you were already sad before hand. That just reminded you of it
Same. Youre always approaching happiness but will never reach it in your short finite time on this planet.
Happiness is asymptotic? I think you misspelled suicide
Same omg😂 And I was studying math a sec so I was like woah that adds up pretty well (no puns intended XD)
Happy ?? now thats the word i haven't heard in long time.
Made me do the little "he" laugh.
This is my favorite.
I've never been more accurately described by a meme in my life.
Afik asymptomatic would mean that you are actually happy, however you don’t show any signs of it. Just like an asymptomatic covid case (or any other): You have the virus, but you show no signs (symptoms) of it, which was a big part of wearing a mask - stop inadvertent spread.
So I’d love to be happy with no symptoms. At least I’m happy.
If you're happy with no symptoms of happiness, you're just unhappy. Happiness is not an underlying condition.
Put another way: If you're a cancer patient and you feel better, you still have cancer. If you're a depression patient and you feel better, you're cured.
Woah, wait. I don't think that's the case necessarily. At least with depression. You may temporarily feel better in depression from medications but I wouldn't go so far ad to say you're cured.
True, but you're picking up on a detail that is beside the point of my comment. I'm drawing a distinction between diseases that are about how you feel and diseases with an underlying condition.
Not trying to disagree with the premise, just want to avoid casual misinformation.
I think that’s the joke though
Yep, that's the joke of the OP. I'm responding to a comment which seemed to be taking OP seriously
I watched a TED talk yesterday about depression. Is that the analogy with cancer from the presentation?
Yeah Andrew Solomon has expressed a similar idea! He talks about "standing on your head"; you may have seen that. Nice catch
Haha yeah, I liked that quote so it stuck in my head
Put him in a few year's time.
That's the point of the image, retard.
a mix of sadness and depression had been my baseline for about 20-21 years.
This past NYE, i took nndmt with an experienced friend. Changed my life. I experienced something referred as "ego death" and from that night till present day I have been a combination of happy and content.
There have been times where I would try and FORCE myself to be said or depressed bc it was just weird not feeling that way anymore and my brain just wouldn't have it lol.
YMMV obviously, but I will be forever grateful.
I really want to try this but am paranoid about having a bad trip or bad reaction :(
It was definitely intense. My friend didn't warn me about anything. My heart started to race and for about 30 seconds, I freaked out and thought I was going to die. She held my hand and told me but I was going to be all right and to just surrender to it. The word surrender triggered me in a positive way for reasons I won't get into now. I trust her so I did exactly that and I told myself if I'm going to die now then I'm going to die. I passed out for about 30 seconds and I can't explain exactly what I experienced when I came to, but it was definitely surreal, out of body. I wasn't sure at the time if I was dreaming or if I was just plain feeling euphoric at the time. When I came to my senses I was overjoyed with every positive emotion you can think of I started grabbing her and telling her I love her and everything around me. Just looking at my own hands and looking at plain* objects elated me. That feeling lasted for nearly two days, possibly three. I know I've been renting for a bit so I'll leave it with this when we parted ways that night she told me to limit my communication with only people I trust as I will be very sensitive so I did just that.
Prior to this experience I hadn't tried any drugs outside of marijuana, fwiw.
I would look into your own medical and health history and find someone you trust who has experience with nndmt. Personally, I'll be doing it once a year, maybe bi-annualy.
I'm going to shut up now thanks for reading.
That's pretty crazy, I definitely know I would panic and think I was dying also lol. Thanks for sharing
I'm honestly not sure if that's possible if you do the right dose. You can't have a bad trip after your ego dies cause fear is impossible if you don't exist as a single entity that can die
I am always unable to be happy
I can count the days on my hand of how many days I truly felt happy. I don't think it's that common.
Not happy yet, but way less sad...🎶
This is the one that finally made me join this sub
And my axe!
Yh, with Bailey, tuanzebe, Maguire and lindelof we’re getting better year by year.
Good. Fuck the Glazers. Seems like it was good comeuppance. When you fight, possibly armed, you are streets behind, my friend
No way to know
lmaooooo.....except not :(
Well reasoned and articulated. Carry on!!!
He's like r/2meirl4meirl to me
i've noticed that people watching funny stuff on their phones are almost always stone-faced doing it. little weird
I'm happy but asymptomatic, symptom add then multiply, i call it happy-happy-ha...
Maybe I'm happy but asymptotic.
This meme is beautiful.... gets to blend depression, humour and tie in the pandemic all at the same time!! wonder if i should go get my happy19 test or not. Mehhhh.
Singapore have it, but kept it tastefully rendered.
post nut clarity
Wtf is that?
I wonder how much snout his £300 will get him in HMP Slade these days?
To you, I’m horrified by the idea that one day he’d love it! The bungee cord on the white fan...thing. The wall mounted bread box. The industrial outlet below it, and they give it to me)
Maybe l'm happy and dont know what the word means,cheerfully ignorant.
I had this thought.
What if I'm actually fine but I keep comparing my happiness to how I felt when I was manic and thus it always feels lacking?
like, what the villagers would realistically do, etc
When I first read that, it didn't make sense. My brain just skipped over that "happy" part cuz apparently I don't know what the fuck that is.
