Is depression /fa/? What are some /fa/ mental illnesses?
Depression is /fa/ as fuck. Depressed people are always so wry and enigmatic. Depression makes them intelligent and creative too. It makes them actually able to enjoy the really /fa/ music that pleb non-depressed people have to pretend to like. Being able to come up with an existential reason to dislike literally anything on the spot is cool as fuck. They stay inside a lot so their skin is nicely pallid. Not having enough motivation to even fulfill their basic hygiene needs gives them an authentic rugged grungey kinda look the next day which is very in vogue. They're always gay or pansexual or bisexual or some shit which is way fucking better than shitty outdated heterosexuality. Taking antidepressants and benzos and stuff is also really fucking cool. Drug abuse/addiction issues make you seem like a mysterious, troubled soul. Having suicidal thoughts, if not a failed attempt or two, gives you this really exciting, world-weary kind of edge. I've had a few friends who killed themselves and they were the coolest fucking people.
I'm actually trying to develop depression to kind of boost my social status. I'm not sure what to try next, it's not really working so far and I'm still frustratingly happy with my life and untroubled. I listen to nothing but boring shit like Godspeed You Black Emperor and American Football. I cut off all of my friends who aren't depressed. I started acting really pathetic around my girlfriend of 2 years so she would cuck me. I've stopped eating as healthy. I force myself to sleep less than 6 hours every night. I'm thinking maybe I should take too much MDMA a few times to trim off some excess serotonin receptors or something. Any thoughts?
Certainly you realize that impressionable teenagers on this board will accept what you say as fact, right? Certainly you realize that they can't detect satire, right? Certainly you realize that someone is going to have to call you out so those kids don't go around spouting that hokum, right?
You already addressed those issues in your reply so why bother.
Watch the edge reach to the edge.
wow you guys really don't understand depression
you can't be /fa/ with depression, you can't be anything, it saps your will to live. You wear the same dirty sweatshirt 5 days in a row because you want to die. You might consider putting on a nice outfit but when it comes to getting up and doing it the energy is not there
This is going to sound really dumb, but I think being depressed and/or introverted can eventually be used to a persons advantage. I've always suffered from depression, and my introversion made me see sides of people most others miss.
Once I started getting more confident, and especially once I started going to the gym, I was able to use all I had learned to my benefit.
Sometimes at social events I feel like a i'm on the ceiling, able to watch everything happening and understanding it like a pro. I feel so in touch with what's going on, because I spent so long soaking it in quietly.
btw, thinking depression is cool is stupid as shit. if you think depression is cool you aren't depressed. if you want to try curing depression, start going to the gym. I know that sounds like some bro science, but it actually does work wonders. i spent years on various medications and always felt like shit, then hit the gym and it almost all faded away.
psychiatrists should make their patients go to the gym for six weeks before prescribing depression medication.
And another thing: stop worshiping "depressed" and "dark" shit. I know it'll always appeal to you, but the problem is thinking that stuff is a good way of life. most of those people have pretty happy lives, friends, etc.
There has always been something frustrating about the super happy, outgoing people, and we'll never have to worry about being like them, but we will have a really nice balance. The key is learning how to use your depression to your benefit.
sure depression manifests differently in different people, but this entire thread is about using faux depression as an affectation. depression is an actual medical disorder with recognizable diagnostic symptoms.
this thread is like if people were going "Is leukemia /fa/?" it's fucking tasteless because the people who actually have it are going through hell. same with depression. people who have depression are often listless and unmotivated. they often feel like nothing is worth any effort, to the point that it's impossible to do anything but stay in bed all day.
having a blog and complaining about not being rich and famous isn't depression. depression is being appropriated by fucking well adjusted folks who want to feel like they're part of the cool club.
Lol. I have anxiety and OCD and it's not fa.
It just means I shit a lot when I'm nervous, get nervous on a daily basis, look like I'm an idiot through being lost for words in social situations, check the locks too much and can't stop thinking about the death of my family members. It's about as un/fa/ as you can get.
Is this a joke? You morons actually think mental illnesses are fashionable?
metal health problems are for dumbfucks and crackbabies, instead of wanting to be fucked up in the head you all should be aspiring for brilliant and healthy minds.
bunch of autists, im done with this shithole
Seriously pick one. Introversion/depression are shit-tier attributes that don't let you experience life like it should be. Anyone that brags about it are either self-diagnosed or dumb ass fuck.
Tfw I thought I had IBS and went to gastrologist and nutritionist only to be told nothing was wrong. Tfw it was part of my depression/anxiety. I fucking hate how this shit gets glamorized.
I got the depression, and i suffer from a schizophrenic like psychosis/delusions. When i was 15 i saw satan in the mirror instead of me and started carving up my arms and chest. After that the ghosts and possessions started. I cried alot Back then. After cutting and self mutilation stop stavving off the phychotic delusions i made a serious sucide attempt. (At that point i had develpoed an eating disorder aswell so i was underweight). I took all the pills in the family med cabnit. My gf at the time called and could tell i was fucked and phoned the amberlamps. Ill never forget the way my brother cried buckets instantly when i told him i was going away. im sure to this day he hates me for it. Skip through a year, my whole age of 17, spent in psych wards. forced drool inducing zoinker pills. Had to fist fight minorities. My gf dump me over phone. I turned 18 and the voices became more violent. Everyday blood everywhere. Every night haunted by demons. Laughing at me. I started burning my self to make it stop. I put countless cigarettes out on my hands, arms, shoulders. I was angry alot Back then. It was so hhumiliating, having my friends see me sobbing over invisable demons, so humilating to appologize to my friends dad for stealing his razor to cut myself with. To this day i hear and see my nightmares, ive learned to live with it. Everyday. Everynite. IM off my pills now, and i rarely downward spiral. but all my docs and shrinks told me ill have it for life.
So Because of my effay illnes illness , ny arms are scarred from bburning cutting and picking. I look like a strung out hobo. And going out in public makes me nervous. But thanks. I feel better now.
Sure it does, homo. You just want to pretend it doesn't because you'll have to face the fact that you were fucked from the start and it's all your fault.
You're a little fag boy, you're a little homo
I bet you liked getting raped like a little faggot, didn't you?
Hahaha fucking faaaaag
Raped little faaaaaag
Brother you need Jesus Christ. You are under serious Satanic attack and Jesus Christ is the only being/person that can free you from it. Feel free to contact me on Kik at Goldenglow33 I will be praying for your deliverance and I can get you in touch with a deliverance minister who casts out demons regularly. I am keeping this thread open in hopes that you will respond to me.
Im a paranoid histrionic which basically means im a weeny little attention seeker and its fucking terrible, I treat everybody like shit and then complain when they leave me, I get bored of everything and never feel settled, I go into a rage within seconds of laughing, I have a girlfriend and I talk to her terribly and she went for dinner with a group of friends one day and a guy was there, all I can think about is if she's cheating, im so paranoid, the only people that know are my parents and my doctor, im saying it on here to get it all of my chest. I hate my life and I try to make it better by buying things, I know that I'll probably end up killing myself at some point in my life. Basically, mental illness is not good, it's awful, im actually ashamed of it.
That's not true at all, maybe for the first couple of years of your depression. Eventually after living with depression for years you realize that you have two options 1) kill yourself 2) realize that this is probably what the rest of your life will be like and try to make the best of it.
I try to buy and wear nice clothes to have something to feel good about, even if it's all in my head and even if its just for a second. At the end of the day I always feel the same, but at least I tried. Living with depression doesn't always mean you're completely giving up on life. Part of what keeps depression alive in most people is holding on to the hope that things will get better some day, seeing the brighter side of life and realizing that it seems so far away.
This isn't fucking tumblr. Mental illnesses aren't cute or "effay".
The list is pretty endless actually, pic related
Unmedicated it's a huge snag, personally I take lamotrigin
>buying cologne at store a few minutes ago
>cashier says her usual "how are you" thing
>pause a bit before responding, "I'm alright"
>she says "is everything okay?"
Damn, bros, you know your depression is bad when even random qt pi cashiers call you out on it. Inside I was like, fuck, this cologne isn't going to mask my illness. Felt bad.
>"I'm actually trying to develop depression to kind of boost my social status"
Hahahahaha this is actually the worst shit. I had a month recently where I was just horribly depressed, barely-getting-out-of-bed-in-the-morning depressed, and I work in a dept. store so all of my colleagues are basically prewired to be friendly as shit in the mornings. Every single day I worked, I'd have "hey mate, how are you?" and I'd be thinking of all these awful things I was feeling and how it felt like the world was crumbling around me but I'd just smile and say "Good, good, you?"
Shit's kinda dark when you think about it, cos god knows how many people you ask "How are you?" per day and they're actually depressed but can't tell you.
i dont see the point of cyberbullying rape victims on the internet
or pretending to be someone pretending to be my epic trip
lol stop trying to act like you weren't samefagging from different browsers, you psycho bitch
and borderline is basically what you have. read about it and seek therapy if any of it seems to apply because borderline people are very fucked up
I scored an "unlikely" so I don't think I have borderline personality disorder.
I probably have *something* though
