I used to 10 or so years ago. I cured it with a combination of next-gen memedicine and ancient technology. And by that I mean eurobeat and 90s hentai.


I put an african elephant in my fridge but I don't know how to get it out...

I'm usually over here.


"Depression" is a meme.

Depression is one of those things that I think has lost its meaning. Just like how people use "autism" to describe any social behavior that deviates from the norm, "depression" is used in place of the word "malaise".


I don't have depression! I actually had a pretty great last couple of days too! I've got two stories I'm concurrently writing, and one of them is in heavy worldbuilding right now, and it is kind of giving me a god's complex. Seriously though, creating is such a nice feeling.


Also I know I'm probably just preaching to the choir here, but I think such a binary view of depression is inherently wrong. Of course some rough patches are natural, one cannot truly appreciate the light without experiencing darkness (hell, when I was in middle school, I attempted hanging myself twice, and yet now I'm very very happy in life), but I think it's more like a bell curve.

Towards one end, you have the few people on one extreem who only ever feel sadness, and on the other you have the equally few people who are always always happy. In the middle we have the majority who experience both, and may lean more to one side or another (in other words, they may experience more sadness or more happiness, but are still "normal").


If I'm online, I'm probably procrastinating something...

Not to sound like the fun police but ..

I think it is vastly under reported on how wireless technology interferes with your brain and body's electrical signals.

I too thought I was depressed for many, many years. Then one day I learned about that. Started turning my router off at night. Stopped sleeping with my phone next to me and was already not using a laptop at that point.

Also improved my diet to include fruit and physical routine a bit ...and... What do you know. I actually feel normal again.


Simple changes, made a massive difference.

WHY BE DEPRESSED WHEN YOU COULD BE HATEFUL?

But is it still malaise if it never ends?

Idk man I'm not a depression scientist. It could also be a chemical imbalance or vitamin D deficiency.

Is there a word for someone who is both parts optimistic and pessimistic? Does anyone here have a sizable amount of hope within their immediate friend groups and gets worse the further out you go or is it the opposite?


real smooth, like butter, I talk, and I stutter, uh, yea

I for one call it realism.
