i wouldn't worry about it, she really just wants to make people feel as bad as she does. it's completely obvious but she thinks she's being clever. it's one of the saddest things i've ever seen.

Fulfilling part time job
Being a mum

So I know it isn't easy. I find it really hard.

But that doesn't make it any less true that if you go out and help people, you'll feel better than you do now. It's worth a try. For a lot of reasons.

Do you think depression is a one size fits all experience? I don't recall anyone telling you to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and keep going, when you posted here about your problems.

vixnix 05-05-2014 03:20 AM

No I don't think that - I posted that stuff because I wanted to make it clear that I don't think you can just pull up your bootstraps, it takes a lot of different things for most people, to experience wellness

pavementtune 05-05-2014 03:31 AM

Vixey - you say helpling others can add to feel better.
Do you think that you are helping anyone by "trolling" in this thread?
And do you honestly believe this topic is a good place for trolling?

If you answer both questios with no, then why are you doing it...

I hope you're doing okay with your job, and you might want to consider the gym as an outlet instead of whatever it is that you are doing here.

vixnix 05-05-2014 03:36 AM

I do think I'm helping people in this thread by being honest about how I feel. I'm not trolling, really - just responding to everything else I see written, same as everyone else. I am actually going to the gym tonight though. Thanks for asking me the questions...hope you're going ok.

Elphenor 05-05-2014 03:48 AM

If you look around at this world and you're not happy, congrats, you're not a zombie.

People are super obsessed with being happy. Gotta be happy, gotta be healthy, gotta smile all the time, gotta have social activities. Oh no! I might be unhappy, better get that checked out!

But, Im not trying to say clinical depression isn't a real thing. It is, and it's serious like any other medical condition.

Its ironic how shes in a depression thread trolling about getting up and doing something productive to make yourself feel better

No.

Also, when you are depressed enough, you literally cannot help others. You can't leave your house because you don't have any energy and/or are crippled by panic, etc. If you get lucky, therapy and/or medicine may make you well enough to be able to actually do things "for yourself" that will improve your mood. I put "for yourself" in quotes, because even trying therapy/meds is doing something for yourself. And yeah, helping people is doing something for them, but it's really doing something for yourself, because it makes you feel better.

reprise85 05-05-2014 10:31 AM

I mean, I'm glad your medicine and therapies are helping you, and imma let you finish, but my therapy and medicines are the best of ALL TIME

Trotskilicious 05-05-2014 11:09 AM

I honestly think this shit shes saying is what vix hears all the time but it doesnt make her feel good so she goes to the internet to abuse and antagonize people.

There is not an instance in the history of the universe in which the troll is a happy, well adjusted mature individual

kelsome 05-05-2014 04:58 PM

Been on the no food love hunger strike. Hope it helps me loose weight so I can find someone new and not die alone. That's all I have to contribute.

gonna turn 28 this year. no spring chick.

Starla 05-06-2014 11:09 PM

Happy Belated Birthday Erica! Hope it was a good one.

thank you

one day closer to DEATH

kelsome 05-07-2014 07:46 PM

This kind of thought process is very unhelpful. I am eating very small amounts spaced out. I'm just not hungry. That was a lie, I do get hungry I just refuse to eat for now.

Trotskilicious 05-07-2014 07:48 PM

kelsome when was the last time you saw a therapist?

Self edit sure, but breaking my shit into more paragraphs? I thought I did just that. On my monitor anyway it's three paragraphs of four lines. If that's too much, and too long, maybe people need to learn to read faster..... that's not even close to being a super fucking unbelievably lengthy post. Uninteresting? Yeah whatever, very possible. But the length was just fine.

Also it's creepy that you know my name but I don't know yours.

who says there's not a good reason to rejoice every single day.

MusicMan4 05-08-2014 02:07 PM

There probably isn't anything that looks more like depression than my multiple attempts to put on my makeup everyday
You'd think I'd be getting a little better

yo soy el mejor 05-08-2014 03:49 PM

you and me both, sister.

yo soy el mejor 05-08-2014 03:50 PM

i just wanna cover a couple blemishes and not look sallow.

MusicMan4 05-08-2014 03:52 PM

I'm mostly struggling with with covering my beard shadow without looking like Powder

And not stabbing myself n the eyeball when I do eyeliner
And not getting nail polish all over my entire right hand

Oy vey

yo soy el mejor 05-08-2014 04:02 PM

ugh i have the same problem with nail polish. i h8 it. i'll paint my left hand with my right and it looks great, right? then i fuck my right hand using my left so i just take it all off. pretty much all my polish goes to waste that way.

i like using clear polish for that reason. or this stuff:
http://pics2.ds-static.com/prodimg/464484/300.JPG

not only do nails look clean and pretty, but chipping is never visible. chipped polish reeks of grungy teenager to me probably because i always sported nasty chipped polish in h.s.

MusicMan4 05-08-2014 04:13 PM

I mostly go clear with this "nail protein" stuff that promises to keep my nails from always breaking since they've always been brittle
But dammit I want black nails
It sucks that I can do my toes perfect but nobody's ever gonna see my dumb nasty big toes

The exploding boy 05-08-2014 04:19 PM

this thread is for telling people how much you want to kill yourself, not sharing makeup tips.

MusicMan4 05-08-2014 04:20 PM

Every thread is whatever anyone wants it to be
The internet is a magic playground

Bread Regal 05-08-2014 04:25 PM

makeup seems like kind of a fun thing to be into.
