Today I felt so depressed


#1

TodayI felt so depressed that I did not want to do anything else but stay on my mattress on the floor. Somehow I felt that I had no energies to do anything, but then I decided to have two nicotine gums and my mind was refreshed within few minutes. Nicotine is good for battling against depression.

Hi mjseu, I hope you feel better soon, I know first hand that depression is awful to endure. Are you on an antidepressant or antidepressant type med? It can make a positive difference in how you feel.
Nicotine is good for SZ - it helps with mood and cognition - but nicotine should not replace taking the right med.
Nicotine also has its drawbacks - high blood pressure and vascular complications could arise from taking it for too long

No I have no antidepressant meds at this time, I had these some time ago. I do have three different blood pressure meds. Yes, I know that depression is quite awful, somehow it just takes all energies and motivation to do anything.
