Shrooms.
    #1077046 - 11/22/02 03:57 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

Shrooms quite possibly cured my depression. Either that or this is one hell of an afterglow. After my last shroom trip I take nothing in life so seriously anymore. I don't live in the past. I don't live in hope for the future. I live for the moment in all the glory that is the present and all that exists in the present. Isn't life wonderful?

I hope this last's. Thank you Shrooms. You are truly the ancient ones.

Many forms of depression are linked to low serotonin levels or "weak" receptors. Mushrooms alter this chemistry for the short-term. It may or may not be a cure. Report back in a few months.

Beware of tripping too often as serotonin levels may be depleted fairly easily.

Nice work chrispc. There's been quite a few reports of people taking standard anti-depressants for years and making no progress, then taking a shroom trip and being cured.

Ignore swami's bullshit. Mushrooms don't deplete serotonin.

Hey. Dont believe me, but watch for yourself. The feeling will wear out. The mind will become more and more unstable, it will force you to make an effort to elevate your concsiousness with hard work, and if yoiu dont you will watch it get worse and worse, playing more and more games, taking you out ofthe moment in very second. Really there are no seconds or time, but the uncontroled mind will not see that and will play you day and night.

I had that feeling of ease after having some wonderful trips on shrooms. It seems like you are staying in the moment, at leat you are getting closer to it, but really those are just games. If you look at it with a sharp intellect, you can see that as long as you are thinking you are not in the moment. Even if you are not thinking about the past or the future(which is extremly unlikely), but only you are thinking about what is happening now, still the infinitely limited mind is comparing and contrasting, analizing and discussing. The mind can not comprehend what is right in front of it, and can never understand the Moment, which is beyond mind and intellect, beyond senses, beyond form and shape.

Please look within. Try. Try more.

Hi! Welcome to S&P&S! :smile:

We have posted a new "policy" at the top of the page and are asking everyone to help us institute it. Can you help? :smile:

Thanks! :smile:

I'd hate to be a downer but yeah Chris be careful with that thought...

Try taking a year break from shrooms and then tell us if you were cured ;-)

but its certainly possible, man - the Mushroom is very powerful

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Sounds like you got some positive energy goin there, keep it up

My advice would be not to try to hard to 'hold on' to that happiness, cuz you may just become extremely dissappointed and fall back under. Your probably still reacting off the beautiful mushroom experience, but it's given you some pointers.

Don't be afraid to feel down again, its natural, let it pass through you. Embrace the change.

I know they did. :smile: I think you might be able to keep it for a long time. Just trust yourself. Many have said not be to happy.. as the happiness might dissapear.. It's true, but still you have a chance. I haven't tripped for pretty long time(3 months)  and still fell very good! And I won't trip for pretty much time either. So let's hope this is THE FINAL COUNTDOWN! :smile: SHROOM ON!

I see trees of green, psylocibe mushrooms too
I see them bloom for me and you

i think it's cool that u found relief of ur depressed symptoms. i can tell u with certainty that depression can be dramatically improved if not totally corrected by giving ur body the tools it needs.

genetics play a role, but not as important a role as we have been led to believe. a great diet, which includes healthy complex carbohydrates as opposed to simple sugars ( processed flour products, corn syrup like sweeteners, and alcohol ) balanced fats and proteins. aerobic excercise... and developing a strategy to rid ur mind of the lifes curve balls... stress, will help the brain recycle serotonin more efficiently...

i'm probably going to get static from some over the processed flour products, corn syrup like sweeteners, and alcohol angle... more of my shrooms will disappear... take them all... what i've come to understand is that some of us inherit the gene that will not allow our bodies to process cheap carbohydrates properly... others develop this problem through poor diet and stress... the body is conditioned to respond to carbs improperly...

i've watched recovered alcoholics replace alcohol with a gallon of rocky roads ice cream... ( or some other simple sugar... ) same mechanism...

give ur body the tools it needs and it will find a way to heal itself...

i understand mushrooms play on the same area's of the brain that seratonin do... i don't pretend to understand the process.. but i accept it... i believe our world provides us with everything we need to be healthy and happy...

keep us posted on ur progress.. take care

Nice post.
