    Default Do you ever miss being depressed?

    To anyone who has ever been depressed long term and has come out of it: Do you ever miss it? Has it ever brought you any sentimental value?

    I've been starting to come out of depression recently, I don't know how it happened, but I'm guessing that it had to do with the increased alcohol consumption (which, ironically enough, is a depressant) that started giving me a more confident attitude (I started messaging people on dating sites, for Christ's sake -- of course, I was drunk drunque when I did it, but still, I got some responses), but I sorta miss having complaining about. I found it to be a creative stimulant of sorts. Do you ever get that way?

    No; I'd only want 'reminders' of it if I wind up losing an attitude of gratitude and need a humility check.

    But I sometimes miss the manic highs that come from bipolar. Those were fun, but the skewed perspective and crashes aren't worth it.

    I think depression can become part of a person's identity which could cause them to miss it. It just messed with my ability to function and it hurt, so I'm only happy to see it go.

    I was never identified clinically as depressed, but I think I had a depressed period. The only thing I miss from it was the moment at which I realized that I essentially had infinite freedom if I had no worth. That was the point that brought me back to life, though, so I suppose that within me, it lives on.

    Pretty much. It happened to me once for sure and possibly twice. Totally sucked. Never want to do that again.

    On the other hand, the existential crises that came with it shed tons and tons light on concepts such as agency, autonomy, will, the human condition, and so on.

    But to be stuck in that perspective is bad news bears.

    It gets better dude and I'm glad you're feeling better. Sorry for razzing you so much.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    This has made me realize I was only in a recession of attitude. I don't think I could ever become full blown depressed.

    Now a sequential habit of recessions... that may pose a danger. hm.



    To answer the question in context, no. I do not miss it.
