> I have been in a serious depression for about a month and extremely desperate , so I tried this out and stayed up all last night , and surprisingly I feel so much better today, I am more alert than usual and feel calm and the loop of negative thoughts that I have been dealing with are not there today. Even if the effects are short lived it is nice to have a good day for once. It gives me some hope finally : )

Quite some time ago I could generate a 2 week remission of depression using sleep deprivation.
The procedure I used was not sleeping for two nights. At about 9 pm of the third night I would go to sleep, awakening about 6 am . The following nights I would sleep from 9 pm to 5 am or 10 pm to 6 am. After two weeks the depression like symptoms would return, sometimes mid day sometimes mid sentence while I was speaking. I wish this phenomenon still worked for me, allthough I did find it quite difficult at times to go without sleep for 60 plus hours. I have a good idea why sleep deprivation quit working for me but to explain that would take more time than I have now. Best wishes!
