There is no simple answer. There are many means of inefficiency that may be addressed.
Fuk pills tho.

depends on you. It's better if you don't use drugs they have lots of side effects, but if you need them take them. Think of it like a crutch if you carry it around when you're not injured it'd be pretty dumb, but if you don't use it when something is actually still broken you'll fuck up your leg

Put the ironic memes away, kid, that paths leads only to greater suffering and loathing. You need to give yourself a reason to smile, even if it's only for your daily gains or for what you wrote or what art piece you drew today.

I have a strong history of depression and pills have never done shit for me.
Remember that depression is a feedback loop.
If you're feeling depressed, go hang out with friends or talk to people, etc.
Do stuff that would normally make you happy and you're more likely to "snap out of it".
Jog, workout, be social, do a favorite hobby of yours, just stay active and do things you like to help curb it.

From experience it will always follow you drugs don't do much to help, just face it head on, work on your life and strive to be better off so you are not depressed

I've been trying to deal with it for 13 years now. Nothing seems to work for me, I've lost interest in things, "friends" decided it was to much for them to deal with. mlpol brought me my first smile in years and I'm not sure if that's bad or good tbh.

I think you ought to stop taking yourself so seriously. Not in that you start treating yourself or life as some sort of joke, but look to something far greater than yourself. Commit to an ideal, then work towards it. Learn that struggle is universal and a rule of nature. Everything is in competition, so you must transcend above the rest in order to compete.

This is pretty good advice.
>Commit to an ideal
This cured my depression when I was younger, I started with small goals, things I wanted to accomplish in a certain period of time and I worked everyday to get.
First thing I wanted was when I was 16, I looked at my parents and told them I was going to move out when I was 18.
So I did, when I made 18 I moved out, I was homeless for a time so I wanted to find a job, I was jumping from house to house, sometimes staying one or two days at friends houses or at abandoned buildings.
But then, one year later, when I was 19 I got a job and a place to live (with some other people but still it's not the street)
And now I'm working into paying some bills and getting an apartment, I was so concerned and so occupied I had no time to let depression get me.
Some days where sad, yes, but after you make it to that objective you want, it's magical.
It's been a while since I did those things but depression is not a concern anymore.

Try to be dating op, it's all or nothing, worst thing you die and that's it.
