In all seriousness I know alot of the funnypics community is cronically depressed and I'd like you to know you can talk to any of us without the guilt of calling a formal hotline, to do so follow the link at the bottom to talk or vent to someone. Until it gets that bad I hope all our shjtposting gets you through another day, thank you for being here we love you dark ones.
Edit: Funny Pics Server via Apathetic Huskey - https://discord.gg/gCC8F9m hope this helps
@Dayshift, I used to work for the NSPL and I struggle with major depressive disorder. I agree with your statement so much. If anyone ever needs to talk please feel free to reach out. I know first hand how hard it is to make that first step to talk to someone...I’ll be here anytime, whenever you’re ready.
@Dayshift, the link to the FP Discord is https://discord.gg/gCC8F9m
We have two separate “real talk” channels depending on whether you just want to vent or you’re looking for some advice. There are plenty of nice people on the server who’ll be happy to help you out or give some emotional support. So to anybody out there who thinks that sounds nice, don’t be a stranger. Our doors are always open.
@Apathetic Husk, Honestly thank you and zebra so much, it's important to keep that information circulating and available for people in need. Sometimes it's just enough to know someone out there cares even if for no other reason than to know you're alive. I'll get on the discord, I appreciate the real talk frens.
@Dayshift, thanks for the message. It’s important that everyone here knows that we’re all here for each other.
@zerbrasombraro, but the thing is, if we talk about it, that makes it real. And I don't want it to be real
@BulbousBiscuit, I know. That’s the hardest part. Anxiety is a liar, though. You’re strong and wonderful
@zerbrasombraro, unfortunately I'm inclined to disagree
@BulbousBiscuit, nah. That’s the anxiety talking. One trick that I’ve done to help change my thinking is whenever I start thinking negative things about anything, whether it’s myself or I’m judging someone on the street, I stop and force myself to come up with three positive things about the situation. For instance, I look in the mirror and think “wow I’m so fat” I think “well...I have great hair, a booty that just won’t quit, and eyes that change color depending on the sun so that’s pretty cool” it probably doesn’t work for everyone, but it helps me.
There is also a depression analogy called the big black dog. Let me see if I can find it...
@zerbrasombraro, thanks zerbra. I really do appreciate it
@BulbousBiscuit, trust me, I know it’s hard. It’s even hard for me and I’ve been dealing with it for years. Like today I don’t even want to go to sleep because of the night terrors, but I also didn’t want to get out of bed at all. I didn’t want the day to happen. I hope knowing you’re not alone will help...misery loves company, right?
@zerbrasombraro, it does help
@Dayshift, you sly dog! You had me monologing!
