    I was for the past 8 years but now I am feeling much better. I sometimes end up being the dumping ground for other people's emotional problems on top of my own stuff.

    I do. Have for a long time. I'm trying to do things to break it into manageable pieces in order to cope with it better.

    Although "longing and romanticism" != depression. More like emo teen angst, which, yes, fortunately, people grow out of.
    I had you on ignore for a reason and I am uncomfortable speaking to you considering your mental state and general callousness.

    In regards to paragraph one (which I really didn't think anyone would stop to analyze) I meant that it has shaped so many experiences over time and has had a continued presence that any notion of identity has been built using it as part of the structure. Faulty thinking perhaps but that's feeling for you.

    In regards to paragraph two what I romanticise is not the process itself but merely the results which the act would bring aka no longer having to be part of something I find to be without point but still excessively taxing.

    i would not classify depression as romantic.

    nor would i classify the utter lack of any emotion or feeling that leaves life bereft of meaning or joy or ANYTHING as romantic.

    it's a fucking horrible thing that i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    It reminds me of this:



    I think there is some beauty in despair and desperation but not all the FUCKING time like with depression.

    summed up beautifully, by Allie Brosh of Hyperbole and a Half...

    my feelings during depression:



    wanting to be somehow dead.







    i have also resented my pets for being reliant on me and making it so it couldn't end, because i knew my mum would probably give them to the pound. Fucking animals.

    I see. Unlike you, I don't discriminate against people on account of their "mental state". I guess, because I'm so "callous"..

    It beats being deluded though. *shrug*

    Having been around depression for much of my life I recognise the faulty clinging to it because "I wouldn't be me without it" bullshit. It's part of the disease. And it is just that: a soul-sucking disease. The first step to recovery is recognising that you are not your disease.

    Don't forget part 1.

    Anyone who's ever had depression or hasn't had it but has wondered about it should really read both posts. The first one is funnier that the second, but the second really nails it. I have no idea how she could nail it yet still make it funny, but I guess it took her a few years of polishing.

    Thanks for your responses everyone.

    I do find depression to be romantic. I think life is beautiful when you're sad.

    I can relate to this very much. I can't even envision myself happy. I don't remember when I was ever happy..

    I'm glad you're feeling better, and I can relate to your second sentence. People seem to like talking about their problems to me. Which is weird because I kind of hate people.
