"Hey, wanna improve your life?"
"No, my life sucks too much."

I don't understand Depression. I mean, I know people get it, and I know it's horrible, but I don't understand why people just sit there and complain rather than do anything about it. You're sad about your life because it sucks, so improve it rather than bitching and writing ****** metaphors over Tumblr. "But Captain, Depression is also caused by a chemical disorder" yes, I'm well aware of this, and wanna know who else is aware of this? Doctors, that's why they have these special little pills and systems to help balance it out and help you "But I don't wanna take them", then **** you, you have no god-damn right to complain. "But they don't work" have you ever considered they don't work because your depression isn't CAUSED by a chemical imbalance, but rather, your own ****** circumstances?

Jesus christ, it's not a ******* math equation, you see a problem, you fix it, if you can't fix it a certain way, you keep going at it in different ways.

As you stated, you don't understand depression. Having depression doesn't necessarily correlate to quality of life. Myself, I have a pretty decent life, it has its ups and downs, but all in all it's pretty good. Friends, caring family, going to school to be a pharmacist, everything's falling in to place, but, I have MDD (major depressive disorder). For no reason that I can discern, I just feel really, realllly sad, to the point where you're more emotionally numb than sad, and lethargic most of the time. There's no reason, there's no rationale to it, it's just there, and short of maybe the medications (which I can't really afford right now), there's not really anything to do for it, besides hanging in there and waiting for the depressive episode to blow over so you can have a little break, or constantly distracting yourself to the best of your abilities while feigning happiness.

As for taking anti-depressants, people have different reasons for not taking it. Some can't afford it. Some see it as admitting they have a problem. Others see it as admitting defeat. Some are turned off by the side effects (for instance, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, suicidal thoughts). Others are afraid that it will change the parts of their personality they like. Besides that, though, anti-depressants don't work for all people. It's an unfortunate truth, and it doesn't mean that their depression isn't caused by a chemical imbalance, it just means they have a refractory (a.k.a. treatment resistant) case, at which point, there's not really much that we in the medical field can do for them.

So, no, you don't understand depression. Please stop acting so judgemental, or like it isn't a legitimate issue. Yes, some people fake it, some just want the attention, but for the people who actually do have to deal with it (especially the ones who can't get the treatment they need), it really sucks. Just consider yourself lucky that you don't have to deal with it, alright?

I remember saving this from frontpage a while ago, and I found it painfully relevant.

Man depression is awful, however it really annoys me that most people who claim to be depressed aren't. I've thought I was depressed before and I found that just getting out more helped. I've also seen people close to me battle depression and there wasn't anything I could say or do to help them and it's awful. T L ; D R Depression is definitely real but most people who claim to be depressed without a diagnosis piss me off

This isn't even a ******* metaphor.

I swear to god you guys are just thumbing any tumblr posts you see. Most of them ******* suck.

What's with the sudden increase in ******* pussies on this site? I'm not saying depression isn't a big deal, but I don't come here to see posts and read comments consisting of you bitching about being sad all the time. Shut the **** up and stop exploiting a legitimate illness for attention. You people are the reason depression isn't taken seriously.

Your right, it isn't a metaphor its a simile

*sigh* I'm sorry to whoever this will offend, but i really don't believe in depression. Its just our society trying to give you magic pills to fix everything. If you're unhappy with your life, change it. And if you are just literally depressed for no reason at all, go watch a documentary on third world countries, or do what the guy in Fight Club did and go to support groups for random **** . I guarantee you it'll change your perspective.
User avatar #55 to #34 - ningyoaijin (11/08/2013) [-]
I don't blame you for not understanding something you've never experienced, but I can assure you it's a hell of a lot more than "being sad". You don't get depressed due to bad things that happen to you, you get depressed because your brain ***** up and tells you to be depressed. Watching a documentary wouldn't do anything at all.

I hate to be that guy, but that was a simile, not a metaphor.

The thought that some day far in the future this post may be discovered on an ancient laptop computer by some form of alien or futuristic humanoid life form, to which they go, "God damn our ancestors were 						*******					 retarded", makes me hate this post.

...But when I need to peel potatos in bulk I DO use other potatos.

You just pile them all in a sack, put them in a tub of hot water and shake them. They abrade the skins of eachother and have minimal wastage.

Metaphor aside, why don't you just get a peeler yourself instead of whining that someone gave you a third potato to peel?

I'm sorry but that's an awful metaphor. And I feel enraged by Tumblr people who say that ANYTHING is such a good metaphor, because they think it's funny to imagine.

As for depression, it annoys me when people talk about it. I mean, for the last semester of my Senior year of High School, and the last 2 months recently I've had environmental (or whatever it's called) depression. Yes, I know I can get out of mine, and I'm currently working on that, but I don't bitch to other people about it. I find happiness with others, and only feel depressed when I'm alone. I'm not saying that I understand your pain, as my depression is more rational, and I can't imagine being sad for no reason at all. However, that's no excuse to let a little ****** depression get ya down. Try new and exciting things. I'll tell you the truth, having a steady sleep schedule has done wonders for me. I feel so much more energetic, which gives me energy to do the things that I want to do. So wake up early, and try things you've never done before. Try running in the morning. I am constantly amazed by the beauty in the world anytime I go outside. Try to look for the silver lining.

Sorry for the incoherency, I was just spouting off random things that have helped me out whenever I was during one of my depression bouts (which I'm in one right now) or whenever I've been feeling bummed for a few days. Not saying all/any may work for you, but if you haven't tried it, it's worth a shot.

Stop complaining and do something about it if it's dragging you to the point where you're complaining god damn.

I have clinical depression. I'm not medicated due to not having insurance but I've found things to help me cope, it still creeps up on me though.

Cure for depression >>exercise<< , healthy eating and actually living your life.
#248 to #238 - swiftshadow (11/08/2013) [-]
Not a universal cure. First of all, its hard for people who suffer from depression, not people who are feeling depressed but people who actually suffer from it, to even get out of bed and function normally.

Those who do manage to get up and do stuff, they still often have to fight to get things done. Sometimes medication is truly the only thing that helps and often the medication eventually becomes less effective over time and they relapse into that state.
