    Same!

    I get bouts of depression too, it comes in chunks. Can last 3 days, to 2 weeks....after a longer period I feel extremely exhausted.

    Last week was great, this week has started out terrible. It's really tough to be honest.

    My mental health probably isn't as good as I'd like to think. It's ok, not terrible, not great.

    Thank you and me too :*



    My longest one was a month.. It affects my sleeping pattern too. I'm starting to look like a panda..



    Nope I didn't. Yeah if you have it in bouts, you're attention seeking apparently.

    Extremely variable.
    What does that even mean.... So much complexity in your words.

    As the response has been almost 100% negative, I have a question for you all.

    Do you think poor mental health is caused by being a part of a society of plenty? I mean, I don't know any of your personal situations, but I'm guessing that the majority of you live fairly comfortable lives, and aren't threatened by starvation or disease daily?

    It's a curious question that I've always wondered, as it seems that those who live through tragedy seem to strive for happiness and revel in positivity more often than not, whereas those who live in comparative comfort are often miserable. Does living comfortably create boredom, so that we resort to dwelling on negatives that aren't even there, as a way of sending a jolt of something through our brains? To create a sort of morbid excitement?

    It is definitely something to do with the Western culture, especially over the last few generations

    It is - I think because we don't have to be concerned about the basic human needs - i.e: food, water, survival, etc we can afford to become transfixed on more 'superficial' ideas - vanity, narcissism, egotism, etc. Through this, we achieve a sense of fulfillment.

    So mental health problems that TSR users face are due to first world problems? Seems a lot shorter

    idk tbh i just ignore it and hope it goes away, tbh i wouldn't care at all about my mental health as long as it didn't affect my physical health which ironically it does because i ignored the anxiety in the first place lol

    I wish mine was because I'm bored of society. My mental health is just **** for so many reasons.
