'My Life Has Completely Changed': Woman Claims Vibrator Has Cured Her Depression

A woman claims she has been completely cured of depression ever since she used a vibrator. She even claims she's never been to therapy since.

There are several ways to tackle depression. Therapy, medicines and keeping yourself occupied, but for a woman, her depression was cured, thanks to a vibrator. The $43.99 vibrator by Tracy's Dog is an Amazon bestseller with 242 reviews, 90 percent of which have five-star ratings, according to Daily Mail. The woman claims she "died, resurrected, and died again", thanks to the vibrator. This is a weapon. It cured my depression, I don’t go to therapy anymore. I was walking from side to side after I finished using this thing, she wrote. Well, if there's a much cheaper cure for depression, then why not?



 

She added: Trust me. Best believe you will never see me frown ever again. My life has completely changed. Have a blessed day. Another satisfied customer also posted a review that read: Okay, so when you first use this thing I would be very wary of the settings. I really like clitoral stimulation, but I nearly broke my vagina, lol. I’ve had powerful orgasms before, but I’ve never had eyes rolling back into my head, can’t breathe, life flashing before my eyes orgasms before and that was only using the 4th setting. I was afraid that if I went any higher I would meet my maker.



 



 

 According to Amazon, the product comes with 10 vibration modes and 10 suctions modes, including multiple power levels and pulsating patterns. It also advised the customers to check out each vibration mode so they could set it to what really works for them. You may think you can ride out your orgasm in setting 10, but you’ll see what I’m talking about when you can’t move and the sky opens up above you, one user wrote. 



 



 

The product description itself warns users it isn't for the faint heart. But a lot of people seemed to be enjoying the comments and testimonials that were being posted by users. Most of them could not believe how something could cure depression, but they were more intrigued than appalled. Would something that costs $43.99 really be able to cure depression, as opposed to therapy and medicines that are far more expensive? 



 



 

But, since women who work for more than 55 hours a week stand a higher chance of depression than others, this vibrator could be useful to them. More and more people are clocking in longer hours at work, and it has a connection to mental health, especially in women, according to Healthline. Women who worked for more than 55 hours a week, and/or worked every weekend, seemed to show signs of depression, according to a study published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.



 

“There’s something called ‘weisure’ that refers to people not having a work-life balance, where they work and grab moments of leisure when they can,” said Deborah Serani, PsyD, professor of psychology at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. “We’ve seen this since the internet and cell phones and how they really negatively impact mental health because you don’t get to reboot, you don’t get to refuel.”



 

For the study, 11,215 men and 12,188 were made to respond to a general health questionnaire. It showed that there was no difference in the number of depressive symptoms between men, who worked for more hours or for fewer hours, whereas for women, depressive symptoms were associated with the number of weekends they had to work. This is because of how women have to put in more hours at work as well as manage their time to take care of their domestic duties. 



 

“Women often tell me that there’s not enough time in the day and that they can’t get enough work and things at home done, and that they don’t have the spousal support they need, while men talk about how stressful their jobs are and how frustrated they are that they can’t get the work done, and how their spouses don’t understand how stressful their jobs are,” said Dr. Serani.
