Problem with the Internet is if they're feeling down (not truly depressed!!) then they go on here to relieve some boredom, but then get dragged down into the depressive threads, and then they start feeling sorry for themselves and moan on and on about their problems, get the sympathy and attention for it that they crave, then get locked in a cycle of self-pity and attention and thinking that this is depression. It is not. It is just called being a boring attention-seeking sod.
I have things I could easily give up and moan about but I choose not to. I choose to get out there and make things better instead. Most of the people in that silly depression society just need a kick up their arse and some exercise!
