Thanks for the replies all, I can use all the support I can!

If you have any ideas, or features that you have found worked in your own life, feel free to post them below!

We as a community have to work together to build a functional website that can be directly applied to real life.
Any ideas that get implemented will have its creator clearly stated.

Depression and Bipolar / Attempts to Strive
« on: January 30, 2015, 03:51:44 PM »
I am aiming at higher goals, the dreams that will change the world and the standard for all life on earth.

Through all this I suffer from mixed states of mania and bouts of vicious debilitating depression. We all suffer from depression at some time in our lives with many succumbing to it. There have been cases where some have overcome the strongest cases of depression and other sorts of mental obstacles throughout history. Among these have been men and woman who have altered the course of human progress because the thoughts that passed through their suffering yet brilliant minds.

Our entire race has the ability to overcome anything. The only way to do that is with a support group that is genuine, loves each other and provides a community. Many have said that the internet has taken away from our social interaction, but I believe it has given us the access needed to make a difference.

In my personal opinion, depression stems from living in a situation that doesn't feel right, where certain situations have triggered aspects of your mind that allows you to see the flaws in the system. It just requires acceptance of current situations. Sometimes I fear accepting it. For I do not understand why people go along with it..

I am going to end this post on the note of mental preparation.
I am present,
I am bold,
I am clear,
I am confident.

Hey MDAO, my name is Jason. I don't want to put a name on whatever I have because it has no power over my life except the power I give it... But in my past I have suffered from a depression with symptoms that correlate to ADHD. But moving on, I am a huge believer in science and the power of computers and I put a majority of my energy into designing and thinking about ways with which it can be used to further benefit our species.

I am either very goal oriented and driven to the point of absolute obsession, or a hermit who doesn't want to leave a room let alone the house. I aim to balance it out, but my diet is directly related to the way my mind functions...

I love video games, I love food, I can cook decently, and I love to love.

You may see me as a space case, a brilliant mind or a complete nut. But I have trained myself so that whenever anyone puts me down it just makes we work harder to be better than I was yesterday. Not for them, not for anyone except myself and my future.

Thank you for welcoming me to this community, I feel as though being here is essential to my well-being.

Acceptance to me, is becoming aware of the reality of situations and events around you and rising to the challenge of dealing with them, instead of avoiding them.


Now if someone could just show me how to avoid avoiding situations, that would be wonderful.

You are quite correct, exercise really allows you to be at one with your body as you need to focus on moving in the correct way without thinking about whatever is bothering you. Meditation of the body for sure!

We should start some polls on which activities allow you to fully open your mind to the experience of being, and perhaps post some experiences of such. If we all talk about exercising, even if it is just a little bit, it will motivate us all to start joining in.

I am glad that you felt great while hiking, I wish there was a mountain near here where I could hike. I'm sure I could find something!

Depression and Bipolar / Depression Free Guarantee
« on: January 17, 2015, 04:06:59 AM »
Hey everyone, I have suffered crippling depression due to a variety of reasons in my past, and in the past year I have really grown in mental strength. I would like to give back to the world for that, as not all my issues have subsided, I have really kicked depression's door right down. I have researched many different aspects of the brain, our minds, and the powers that truly are at work when you think.

Putting all of those things together, along with building a knowledge of web development skills such as HTML and CSS as well as a bit of Javascript, I have started to build a website that will have a tool kit for developing a mental system against depression. I am living proof that it works, and will post the link once I have uploaded the beta product. Those of you who are on this forum will be the first in the world to use it.

Now don't think this will be just one of those sites that provide in depth articles for overcoming the made up stuff in your head(thanks people without depression writing articles on depression). It will be interactive, mind training techniques that provide you with the skills to avert negative thoughts over time, allowing you to think freely, overcome the obstacles that have been so scary for so long. We all need to help each other, for we are all the same. Our lives are directly related to the future that our offspring will have. So let us get rid of this horrible mental disease that has held so many of us down for so long! RISE UP and take the life that YOU deserve!

I would like to suggest to the administrator of this forum to possibly add an introduction section, as having a place to explain who you are, a bit of your background and why you have sought out help really gives a personal touch to any forum. I hope to see this implemented, as I plan on frequenting this forum as much as possible, because I realize how many people feel as if they are alone.

Let's build this into an active powerful Canadian site with as much mental growth and progress as possible!

Guten Morgen Pleeb,

Ich spreche kleine deutsch!

Perhaps we could brush up on it together! Potentially give this forum a reason to create multilingual sections for all aspects of our beautiful province!

Hey Peace!

Just wanted to let you know that you are never alone, despite what your mind may be telling you. No I am not going to go into a higher power rant, I just know from personal experience that the best way to truly feel content with being alone is to learn to love yourself. I have been researching and progressing my mind on such matters since last year and have made great progress in my loneliness and depression.

If you would ever like to talk, about anything, just PM me or start a group chat on your current mood with any questions and anyone on this site would be glad to join the discussion. This is a place of healing, despite what people say about talking to people online. Knowing that people care and having a support system whether it is with peoples minds through writing, or in person - it is such a powerful thing.

Welcome to the forum fellow homo sapien!

General Discussion / Goal Driven Chaos
« on: January 12, 2015, 11:29:12 AM »
So I have quit the last two jobs I started after the first day, to pursue my dreams of creating a device that would enable us to capture thoughts and use those said thoughts as commands for a terminal type computer system. All within a pair of glasses.

BUT at the same time, I am making NO money because it is all research and development, and I am far too driven by this dream to settle down elsewhere. I understand that this is most likely a manic episode driven by a touch of caffeine here and there, as well as a powerful desire to see my product come to life. I see how much this product will help our species, for I have developed it past the point of just another wearable tech product to something that is much more powerful in the growth and development of the human brain.

Now I come to this forum in the hopes that someone could shed some light on what to do for money, as I understand a conventional job would be ideal but every time I start working somewhere I get this gut feeling that I should not be wasting time on something so trivial when my product needs to be brought into this world and it becomes an overwhelming burning desire.

This is not a fleeting thing either, because I have been researching this project for multiple months now, gone through many designs and scrapped almost all of them due to advances in my research and understanding of how to connect to the human brain.

I come to you all in need of other organisms perspectives.

Best Regards.

Hey all, this is a great topic, was just reading through it comparing your tools with mine! Mine is still being built, but here are a couple:

- Meditation
- An array of spokem/thought POSITIVE affirmations
- Taking a long shower
- Spending time with loved ones
- A good long run
- Playing video games(more of a distraction technique)

One thing I have trouble with is being consistent day to day, routine day after day is something that has evaded my mental processes for many years. Could be the ADHD but I know if I put my mind to it I can re-wire it. I am human, and we have overcome much worse circumstances in our past.
