This is fine, but I was hoping it'd be one of those 'my back hurts so I can't work, gimme free money' types who are seen lifting heavy equipment.
EDIT: When OSHA asks if they can be your friends, just hit 'Ignore.'
Getting paid for a year without working must be fun.
Some people just aren't very bright, enuff said..
How stupid is this? Just because you're depressed, doesn't mean you cannot laugh or smile anymore. Some people are depressed and you don't even notice it.
Depression is a serious illness and just because you see someone having a good time, does not proof the person is not depressed!
Yeah just because someone is depressed doesn't mean they NEVER have a good time
Try it. I can guarantee that if you suffered from depression to the point where you couldn't work, you'd shut the fuck up sharpish.
Try having depression some time then see if you think the same thing.
Hell, any disability forcing one to not work can be hell. I've not been able to work since the end of 2002. I have gone back to school so that I can rejoin the work force. Why? Because siting at home and collecting disability is NOT my idea of a full life. Knowing that you may never work again when the desire to do so is present is like living in death.
It goes to show you have to be careful what you put on the internet these days.
perhaps she can get away with the whole Being at Chippendales by saying her doctor prescribed it.
i did it for 2 before going back to school
If you're suffering from depression, your doctor will tell you to get out and socialise as much as possible. The worst thing you can do is follow your natural inclination at that point and sit at home being miserable.
I'll quote Chick McGee from Bob and Tom:
Don't write anything down. Don't take any pictures. Deny. Deny. Deny.
I find this stupid as well. That's what you do when you have depression. You try to have fun. what else would you be recommended to do? Posting on Facebook, so what? Photos of her having fun shouldn't be used as evidence that she's cured for depression.
Yeah. It's not as fun as it seems. It's called depression for a reason, y'know. Heck, i once tried to leave kitbashing because of it. It's not fun. You try it. Prove me wrong. C'mon.
On a similar note, someone tell me how you diagnose depression affected people as 'cured'. That's pretty subjective, don't you think?
my doctor just gave me a bunch of pills and said 'get well soon.'
Another person who gets fucked by Facebook
* Waits for thread to explode into full "there's no such thing as depression" vs. "I have depression" battle. *
1. WTH people, use your flippin' privacy settings on Facebook.
2. Suffering from depression doesn't mean you have a glum expression 24-7, or that you have to be crying in your profile picture.
3. If this IS a fake money-grabbing scheme, she's ruining it for people with a legitimate problem and she's a piece of garbage.
I hate it when people say 'Cheer up' if you tell them you suffer from depression.
Your doctor sucks.
