    Before six months I had some massive anxiety attack. I can say that from then on I was never normal. I just feel like my brain has shut down. I had pretty bad symptoms which had gone.. Most of it. But still I struggle with the symptoms that I have. It's almost unbearable. I have depression for now. And I feel so numb. I have weak response to almost everything. I get anger sometimes.. But I don't feel like the adrenaline is released. I feel so numb for everything. Back then I used to have anxiety due to doing pornography. Then I came to know it's a drug and stopped it. <Mod Edit: removed link>
    But to check it.. I did pornography yesterday and I felt nothing. I didn't have anxiety at all. I felt very numb. Is this the symptom of depression?
    Guys. Can u give me some advice on how to battle this deadly illness?

    Hey SpiderBoy, welcome to the Forum. Your anxiety started 6mnths ago, did you have anything stressful happen to you before that time. I don't understand what you mean by pornography being a drug, I know people can become addicted to many things, drugs, alcohol, gambling and yes pornography is that what you mean. Just trying to clarify

    Yea.. It was kinda like a shock to my brain. And I don't know what happened next cos I fainted. Um.. Pornography is a drug.. It produces too much dopamine which our brains never evolved to deal with it. It's like a cocaine. Wait.. I'll put some link up
    Pornography causes depression and anxiety too.. I'm one of the victim of it.

    Okay I'll check that out later. What symptoms of anxiety are you having. Also have you seen a doctor about it. Sometimes there can be a physical cause, so seeing someone to rule that out would probably be beneficial.

    Okay SpiderBoy, I watched it. I understand what he's saying, I've done a little reading into addiction. Yes, these things trigger the pleasure centers in the brain, I believe in the Amygdala area, release the dopa( feel good chemicals)
    But basically you want to get ridofyour anxiety and depression.....right? Usually when you start an antidepressant it can take several attempts with various ones to find what works for you. I'd encourage you to work with your physician and find what will help you deal with the symptoms now, therapy would help disclose the root problem to deal with.
    I'm concerned that you say you have anger issues, I'd hate to see you hurt someone or get hurt yourself.
    Seek medical help, you're a young man the sooner you get it fixed the sooner you van get on with your life.

    Yes, it is very possible for people to be addicted to pornography and it can be a very hard cycle to break, you seem to have done it though. Well done!
    When did you go cold turkey if I may ask? Sometimes denying your brain and body an addictive substance can do such things to your mood and make you have outbursts of anger and frustrations.

    If you are concerned you may be depressed, perhaps it would be a good idea to see a doctor about it?

    Stay strong, and once again, well done for breaking your addiction, there are people who live with those things for years.

    I went cold turkey like before 8 months... But this time my depression is not due to pornography sis.. That was different kind of depression..but now.. I feel so numb. Like seriously very numb. I feel so inhuman and weird and I feel like a huge dumbo.. I'm so done with this. And my breakup with my favourite person ripped my heart into -1000 times.. I'm so confused rn.. like totally confused
