Who eats all the stuff that you post your bulldog with?
Union Jack Wearing Bulldog is in the habit of robbing as many tasty high calorie treats as he can get his paws on from other animals, children and adults.
Some of the dogs I look after try to rob him, along with a few friends and their children.
A few manage to steal some junk food when his back is turned or he allow them to have his leftovers to avoid them being used for pigswill.

I noticed one day that the less I would eat, the better I felt. Now I eat a regular 2000 calories a day on average, and I look like a normal person. It's amazing.
haha, yeah i get it. eating too much just makes me feel dirty af

I've only drunk a few sips of high energy drinks on a few occassions and had dreadful chest pains every times.
Probably because I have dietary allergies that include artificial sugar substitutes.

I'm the same weight I was as a 13 year old and mostly stick to a daily calorie restriction of 750-950 calories.
Mostly through controlling my diet, homecooking twice daily meals from scratch and restricting portion sizes.
Only meats I eat are chicken and beef.
I wondered if you had any similar habits as regards dietary lifestyle.
i typically have cereal + milk/yogurt for breakfast, something with lots of veggies for dinners e.g. a salad + sweet potatoes. veg pasta/spaghetti.or like veg pizza or burgers (i'm vegetarian). oh and 2 snacks a day like a smoothies or some chocolate or crisps or a yogurt

Totally. Always thought people were joking when they talked about treating depression with lack of sleep but yeah, it totally can work - I feel absolutely euphoric if I don't sleep for a night.
yeah, it was nice
too bad my body just couldn't cope anymore

i experienced like the worst heart palpitations ever yesterday, and now my boyfriend won't allow me to get any more red bulls and monsters :<
i mean, not really? most people think i eat very little tho, when i tell them what i eat in a day. why?
Your boyfriend is clearly looking out for your best interests. It may have been a hard way to find out, but you do at least now know that this is not a solution. Unfortunately no one can tell you what the solution is, but I think you can do worse than look at what londonmyst suggested and almost experiment with your diet. Cut certain things out and see what difference it makes. You can have a healthy diet and still be consuming something that isn't working for you.

Sleep deprivation can actually be used as a treatment for depression. Google it.

(Before anyone says, I am not suggesting anyone does this without advice from a doctor, I just think it's interesting)
I wouldn't use the word 'treatment' there. It has been shown that sleep deprivation can lift mood in people suffering with depression. That's not in dispute; the whole basis of this thread is that Ciel experienced it. But as 'treatment' it is very temporary. For that benefit, which I entirely accept would be notable in those who suffer with significant depressive symptoms, the damage that is caused by the lack of sleep is just far more significant even in the short term. In the medium to long term it is entirely unsustainable.

I used the word treatment because some psychiatrists do use it as a treatment for certain types of depression.

That's fair. And as part of a plan drawn up by an expert (I say 'part of' because it can't be used day after day; your body has an unavoidable need for sleep) that's fine. What I wanted to avoid is people looking at this thread, seeing that sleep deprivation can be used as treatment for depression, and then giving it a go themselves. As I've said, the negative effects of lack of sleep are wide ranging and undeniable. If anyone is considering using something like sleep deprivation as treatment for depression, it needs to be done on the advice of an expert and not because of something that they've read on an online forum. Not that I'm saying that's what you suggested, because you didn't. I'm just covering the bases.

Precisely why I said it shouldn't be done without advice from a doctor
