Depression and suicide

Sure if you're going through tough times and you're emotionally unstable you need help from your friends and family, but what I don't get is those certain individuals who claim they're going to suicide but take their time with it and post over 9,000 journals and whatnot complaining about how much your life sucks, that nobody can save you from yourself and whine whine whine.

That isn't crying out for help, that's attention whoring. That's being a goddamn drama queen and you seriously need to get off the internet and get some counseling.

Same thing with all those guys who complain that you're getting trolled, or that someone posted a mean thing and now you're in a fit of spiraling depression. You don't need to use every social media site as a bloody twitter page spamming us with how sad you feel. :roll:

And then when I do try to help someone, he gets all uppity, calls me a troll and hides my comment. Do you want help? Really? And you bitch in response to those who do?

Some just do it for attention, I'm afraid. :(

Agreed. Usually I tell them to grow up and stop whining. It annoys the hell out of me because they trivialize an issue that can actually be serious.

You ever stop and think maybe they're attention whoring because a need for attention and love is part of the reason they feel depressed in the first place? I'd say it's pretty natural, even expected, for a scared, hormonal and possibly mentally ill teenager to seek out being coddled by others. They still remember what it's like to be children and have mommy kiss their boo-boos better but now they have to grow up and suddenly being sad makes people angry at you for not toughening up instead of being sympathetic like they used to be, so they seek positive social reinforcement from internet circle-jerks.

I don't see how attention whoring is necessarily a bad thing as long as they keep it on their own page and don't like, actively advertise or hunt others down demanding to be loved or something.

I love it when people tell other people that they have been trying to 'suffocate' themselves on DA.
It's like, sir. Please.
Go get some help, or a sit and spin.
Either way,
You gtfo of the internet.

I guess they think writing it down all the time will make them feel better but it never does.

Some people enjoy wallowing in misery. If someone's really determined to off themselves then some random fucker on the internet isn't going to talk them out of it (or into it for that matter.)
