Serotonin, PE, depression and motivation
I haven’t been here in many months, but thought this was a good place to look for advice.
And I need some opinions.
I’m not feeling right. I don’t think it’s quite depression, though a year+ ago, I did feel it was depression.
My main problem right now is motivation. I just can’t get myself to do anything. What’s worse is I work from home, so if I can’t do anything, I don’t make money. It’s not like I go into a 9-5 and have no choice but to work. I’m at home so I have the option of not doing anything.
I’ve gotten advice for PreE here a long time ago. I tried tramadol, which increases serotonin I believe. And that worked a bit.
Now recently, I’ve been reading up on 5HTP and how that increases serotonin.
I’m in great physical shape, good looking, so I do feel pretty good about my self in that aspect.
But just no motivation. Now if I had PreE, and something like Tramadol worked, which probably means my serotonin levels WERE low.
Will that mean my motivation is probably linked to Depression and low serotonin levels?
I’ve tried L-Tyrosine for concentration and to hopefully motivate me, but it didn’t do anything.
So I bought 5HTP today and am going to try that.
But then I had second thoughts, that maybe I’m not depressed and it’s just something with motivation?
And 5HTP is not what I need.
Thanks for your time.
