Why depression isn’t glamorous

October 15, 2010

I’m writing this because I’m sick of hearing the “I’m depressed” line at the drop of a hat.

You see, depression doesn’t pick and choose when to appear – it doesn’t dictate that you can’t go to lectures but you can go out all night partying – it isn’t likely that you’d actually have the energy to do that anyway.

It can also be a problem for your career as a rapper – depression can slow your speech. So try rapping like Dizzy Rascal when depressed; it could be the worse tongue twister ever, which you can naturally beat yourself up over.

It can also make your brain run as slowly as Windows 95, or an Enviro 400 bus. Sometimes you can’t process anything; I remember walking into town once and not being able to understand where all the lights were coming from. So, if you do manage to be a successful rapper, you might get on stage and be totally overwhelmed by the lights, not the crowds cheering you on.

Got reading to do? Forget it. Throw them out of the window along with your concentration, confidence and DVDs; you won’t be needing them for a while.

What, on the other hand, you will need is a comfy bed and something pleasant to stare at whilst your brain fails to boot up for the 25th time of the day. Oh, and ready meals. It can also be nice to have something good to look at whilst you wait for your referral to MH services to come through (you’ll be by this time a world champion of thumb twiddling, too).

Finally, emotions? I don’t really need to cover them, as you won’t have any. Only one: nothing. And it comes with everything.


I should have internet again tomorrow!

    Yay, for having internet back soon!

    I know what you mean about how people take “depression” so lightly. If they were really depressed they would know not to belittle it. 😦
