Living well is the best revenge. Show them all by stepping up. Do deal with the depression. It's neither easy nor fun.

Don't get mad; get even. Make up a story that you caught your dad banging another woman. When she cries, call her a cry-baby.

@41 - You're so right! Like, seriously, who would expect the Dark Lord to be mean? FYL for not getting a joke when you see one.

57 - You do know that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, and OP can't help it herself no matter how hard she tries, right? How dare you! If she could find happiness herself, she would. With a clinical condition such as Major Depression, which is what she more than likely has, she would need a medication (as DocBastard suggested, Zoloft is a good choice) and/or therapy. My brother attempted suicide twice last year. His depression got that bad. I can't get over how many

Ps. You should research the pharmaceutical companies.. trust me, they are not making pills in the masses to "help" people..

First off, he attempted twice and survived each attempt because I caught him once just after the act and once during. Yeah. Don't fucking assume. Major Depression is a serious condition, hence the term "clinical". I understand that many doctors prescribe unnecessary drugs, but in many cases depression can't be overcome simply by "sucking it up". I have had depression before also, and was prescribed a medication. Did it clear up the depression? Yes. Don't assume what my life

Your'e right, I Should not have assumed the facts about your brother and Im sorry for that. As for the other comments, I stand by what I said. Have a good day and I hope you see the beauty in life. Our lives are miracles! We are on a Planet in the middle of the solar system! How crazy is that?! I cant imagine life without the wonder and excitement about our existence and in this I gain happiness. I feel I need to spread happiness to people and to show them the truth of ourselves. I just wish ot

*facepalm* That's all fine and dandy, but many more people out there will prove you wrong and hopefully prove that depression can't always be overcome by "sucking it up" and "thinking positively". Those types of "solutions" didn't work at all for anyone I know. Why should I think it'd work better for anyone else? I appreciate the optimism overall, but sometimes people should be realistic as well... no?

I see how realistic people are and they are sad. I choose to be delusional and insane if that means happiness;)

Fuck this. You're too thick to really understand. How about you take your "mind over matter" attitude and give a seminar to my mom, who's tried to kill herself three times and has had major depression my entire life? Tell her that while she continues to deal with my dad's death (they were together 25 years), my sister's deployment to Japan, and the deaths of her parents, her brother, and almost everyone important to her except her two kids. Or you can just shove your unhelpful, cond

5t3- thank you for speaking for the rest of us educated and people who struggle with depression. it is very very true that depression cannot simply go away, and even medications dont always work or they make things worse. to 'relaxfreak', stfu douchebag.

Thanks, guys. It's nice to see there are still some intelligent people out there... Thank you for using your heads and understanding a simple concept. :)

@relaxfreak, the 'clinical' refers to the fact that the depression is caused by an imbalance of chemicals rather than from life events. In this case it is not possible to simply 'suck it up' or 'look on the bright side' because these patients (if you like) are deficient in the chemical which allows them to look on the bright side and experience pleasure in the first place. And for your information, the medications prescribed act to increase the release of these deficient chemicals in order to r

stfu you guys freak has all the right ideas going for him. I mean who the fuck cares if everyone you care for is dead,dying or has disconnected from the world. who cares if you've lost your home, job or any real meaning in your life. just fuckin look at the goddamned bright side of life. like omg were like totally life in space when like no one else is! and we all have unicorns and magic fucking faries. seriously tho asshole u make me sick and you don't deserve this false happiness in that f

#82 - either you're on a bipolar high, or you're just a very happy person (probably the first one though) either way, I respect your opinion, but some people really are mentally ill when depressed. not everyone, but some people really do have a mental disease. if you did a CT scan on them you'd see that their brain was seriously messed up. it's a hard thing to understand unless you actually experience it.

Depression is a terrible thing. I've been there, and I've known people who've been pulled much deeper into it than I have. I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy. I'm glad that people like 5t3ff are still fighting that awful stereotype that depressed people are just pessimistic losers who can't be bothered to appreciate the good life they have. It makes me sad how ignorant some people can be, but it makes me happy that I have some allies out there ^_^

Do you realise how hard this is for OP? Having all of these things as one giant rock dropped on OP's head? Some people can get over this shit easily, OP can't, like me

well your wrong, do you know anything about depression? looking at this comment clearly not. have you not thought that one day you will have something shit happen and everyone will just tell you to get the fuck over it plus if you don't like people talking about problems why go on this website? get over yourself

Reply

#17 and #109 Did it ever occur to YOU that it's not her fault? that perhaps life really did just screw her over? Plus, neither therapy nor pills are a sure-fire thing, and it's a matter of what yoou react best too. I doubt you have the expertise to really give that advice. plus, you can't say that coment was 'nearly all true'! You have no idea if it's true! mabey OP HAS sought help. Mabey she is dealing with these problems. And it's not like she's using her depression as an excuse, she's just
