    You probably feel depressed because you feel tired. With low energy, most people are easily aggitated by little things. Energy gives you brain power and the ability to deal with everyday problems life throws at you. Maybe you need to be on medication, not over the counter speed which is basically what diet pills are. hydroxycut etc..

    That could be why you feel tired and depressed now. Ephedrine, if used over a long time, will exhaust your nervous system. I don't recommend you going back on them. See a doctor and get on antidepressants.

    The diet pills gave you a synthetic rush - this is not only harmful to your body over extended use, but will only provide temporary relief anyway and just covers up your natural state, which needs lots of healthy attention. Hope you are feeling much better soon - take care !

    Because it works like an anti-depressant. Which made you feel happier.

    There is no reason to be depressed all of the time. You need to see a doctor and get treatment. There are alot of things out there that will help. Don't self medicate. You will make your condition worse.

    You might be depressed but more likly your not getting enough sleep. If your young you may need up to ten hours a night to get a full nights sleep. If your older then it might be stress or diet that is interupting your sleep cycle. Try cutting out caffine and refined sugars for two weeks. Thats why speed made you feel better.

    ''Relate with others, but relate with yourself also. Love others, but love yourself also. Go out! - the world is beautiful, adventurous; it is a challenge, it enriches. Don't lose that opportunity! Whenever the world knocks at your door and calls you, go out! Go out fearlessly - there is nothing to lose; there is everything to gain. But don't get lost. Don't go on and on and get lost. Sometimes, come back home. Sometimes, forget the world - those are the moments for meditation. Each day, if you want to become balanced, you should balance the outer and the inner. They should carry the same weight so that inside, you never become lopsided."

    From Osho: A Sudden Clash Of Thunder

    Know, understand, and accept yourself if you have to understand others better, advises the author as he unravels the mysteries of the human soul.

    Have you ever wondered why do you exist? How did you come about? Was there any need for you to exist? You are such a miracle! These are quirky questions that have no real answers. But the fact is that you exist - whether anybody wants it or not, whether you can fulfill certain roles or not.

    You are a mystery for existence. You have been given this life to live, to create, to celebrate - to do everything that is possible. Don't you value this significant opportunity? Or are you not bothered at all?

    Most people live their lives as if they are not bothered at all. Life is there, it is taken for granted, and it is wasted in routine, in unawareness. Such a valuable treasure, and it is not valued at all.

    So, when you wake up in the morning, pause for a while, and meditate before you are caught up in the whirlpool of activity. Feel grateful that life has given you one more opportunity to live it differently. Feel grateful that in spite of everything you have been doing, existence is still interested in you and wants you to continue.

    Have reverence for existence and love for yourself. Existence loves you and needs you. Let your love reach every cell of your being and energise it.

    Before you start showering your love on others, begin with yourself. It is always easier to love others than oneself, because one keeps finding faults with oneself and always feels inadequate. But do you understand that you are present in existence because existence wants you to be there - the way you are.

    Existence imposes no conditions on you. It loves you unconditionally - whether you are a sinner or a saint. It accepts as you are - in your totality. The sun, the moon, the stars, and everything in nature accept you. Learn from nature and accept yourself.

    When you wake up, just wash your face and look into the mirror. Look at yourself as if you are looking at your beloved, or at a child. Let your heart speak from your eyes and look with wondrous joy at who you are. For some moments, forget everything and be with yourself. These are the rare moments when you can pour all your love at yourself and feel blessed.

    This is a meditation to create a new rhythm in your life. Remember: such a lovely beginning will certainly make you love everybody. You will breathe love. Your very vibe would be that of love. The magnet of love will work wonders - you will get back love a thousand folds. There can be no other more powerful meditation than love. Love Is God.
