We are always told the us depressed people have low serotonin levels and that why we are depressed. Antidepressants are supposed to raise serotonin but they never did anything for me that's for sure I tryed them for 32 years but just got more ill. I don't take them anymore and never will to be honest, so anyway according to the doctors raising our serotonin levels is the magic cure, well I have been doing everything I possibly can to do this by taking 5htp eating loads of foods that raise serotonin like bananas for example and the result is nothing. Also exercise is supposed to help as it get the endorphins going which is the happy hormone, well I have been going to the gym and swimming for weeks on end and all that happened is that I feel worse than ever. This serotonin thing is only a theory and not fact as there is no concrete proof of this as it impossible to measure serotonin levels in an alive human being. Personally I think this low serotonin theory is rubbish. I have started to wonder if we are not suffering from anything and that we are like this because that's just the way we naturally are just the same as happy people are happy because that's just the way they naturally are. You don't see them going to the docs and telling doc I think I'm suffering from happyness and I need some pills to stop me feeling like this
