FML - The follow-up

Today, I posted a status on Facebook saying I was depressed and needed someone to talk to. Someone commented on it saying "Just kill yourself". It got 20 likes. FML

Zmeilerr Say more :
Thank you guys for all the advice/comments. I think it was just a bunch of dumb idiots from my school just messing around, but nonetheless, I took it seriously. Again thanks.

Same with me, Jonah. What annoys me the most is when people post something and they're the only ones to "like"/comment on it, thinking they're gonna get a bunch of comments/likes.

Yeah OP .. you claim that "someone" commented, which probably means you don't even know them. Stop adding random people you don't even know. Stop adding people that don't even like you for that matter. They're usually not that hard to figure out!

177 OP could have said "someone" just so they didn't have to say the person's actual name. Just because you don't know the name of the person doesn't mean that OP just randomly added them. For that matter this could have been someone who used to be friends with OP and that's why they are also Facebook friends. Stop acting like you know the whole situation from a few sentences.

...or he was actually relying on friends to talk to him when he needed it. It wasn't necessarily an act of desperation or a cry for superficial attention.

50, I deeply cherish your concern and advice. Your compassion truly touches my heart. Thank you so much, but I was actually referring to the OP.

Actually, I think when 50 said "you", he meant generally everybody. When someone's giving advice, "you" is usually meant to refer to anyone whom the advice could apply to.

Agreed, #8. WAY too many people post stuff saying "im depresed" on Facebook. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, go out, go watch T.V., go play on your gaming platform, just DO something to make yourself NOT depressed instead of looking for sympathy from others.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear enough. If you are actually diagnosed with depression, yes go see a doctor. But if you are just an attention seeker like the OP was being, then just do something to take your mind off it or go hang out with friends.

@9, People can't tell sincerity on Facebook statuses, cause the majority of them are over exaggerated, 99% of the people I'm friends with on Facebook are only acquaintances anyways. If the op really wanted someone to talk to she/he should have called or private messaged one of her true friends

"But if you are just an attention seeker like the OP was being..." So, do you personally know OP? How do you know OP was being an attention seeker?

@156: The way the previous people know the OP is an attention seeker? If the FB replies weren't enough, the individual came here to start another self centered conversation. The people that I know who deal with depression (to an extent), are the kind of people who stick to themselves and don't talk about it. This person appears to deal with pseudo-depression, who gets upset when they don't get the attention they need and they seeks it elsewhere (ie not irl? go to FB. not FB? go to FML).

One of my brothers best friends posted a status one day saying goodbye to everyone he loved and actually killed himself. I don't care if it was for attention, it could he completely true. You cant tell online.and anyone who told them to kill themselves obviously has never seen the effects or been affected by suicide.

Except there are people who because of depression, can't see a doctor. They need someone closer to them they can trust. You're not going to do a trust fall with a complete stranger, are you? No, you're going to do it with a friend.

I find it annoying to see posts on Facebook about someone being depressed. Talk to your closest friends, or even get professional help. When you post it on Facebook it seems the person posting the status just wants attention and sympathy. Sorry OP, YDI.

what if someone is do lonely they just want spme1 to talk to and they don't have a "closest friend"? what if the ppl on facebook ate the only ppl tht could be considered friends? then what do they do? sit and be miserable alone?

No, they seek professional help. There are hotlines internationally. There is no such thing as 'no one to talk to'. Someone will always be there to help.

where? every professional I have ever called always has a busy tone, I know where the OP is coming from, I've posted on facebook and got responces similar to this FML, it suck...

I think it's time to do a friend cull on your facebook. Sometimes it's not really worth having 100+ friends of people you barely know who'll treat you like this, regardless as to what the comment was.
