"I have one dear, dear friend that I can and do share everything with. I get afraid that I go to her too much at times, but she is still with me after many bloody years so I guess I shouldn't worry. Yep, repressing is bad stuff, but I'm…"
"Thank you Danno. Honestly, when you get used to having people blowing off your issues or just not giving a damn, knowing that someone, somewhere means you well and wants you to be better can do a world of good, just like now. Maybe you think you…"
"Heh, I know the "why the hell am I feeling so low" thoughts oh so well...! Just comes with the territory, mores the pity.
I think I will give berating my hormones a shot when I next feel down. Knowing me I'll get into a full blown…"
"Quick reply as I'm reading along...
Labels - yeah, they suck. They serve really only as medical short hand, and even then the system is flawed. We are not labels, we are thousands of little things that make the bigger picture; I recite this…"
"I've read you post a few times, and a couple of things stick out to me, this isn't me saying you are this and that, so ignore any part that you (even slightly) disagree with, but from what I've read it would seem that you…"
"First of all, you are NOT contributing to the world suck! The only people that do are those that enjoy hurting others. You obviously belong to the object, the one getting hurt, rather than the subject, the one hurting (: <3

"now, if this is a clinical issue, i don't know how much help our words will be...though, you did say you've yet to find meds that do much... anyway, i'm glad you've found a professional to talk to, and i'd like to think…"
Hey guys, I know I haven't contributed much to the group but I could use a little hope. Basically I've been fighting depression for some time (officially a year and a month, off record it could be five-ten years) and I'm losing the battle. Before anyone worries, no I won't be self harming any time soon, and I've yet to work up the nerve to stare down my instinctive desire to live and tell it where to go so suicide is also off the table.All that said, I'm at the end of my tether.

"Game genre is usually anything with an RPG kick to it, from the more traditional Skyrim to Borderlands 2. If I'm not creating some new character or other, I wind up on Minecraft or playing something more action based."
I'm 21, female and hail from a town that is sorta dying. If you want to start a debate with me, start talking about how video games aren't an art form, why mental illnesses are a load of rubbish, why paper books will die (actually that's more likely to make me melancholic but you know) or declare that Xth edition of D&D is better than the rest.
Other random things of note, because I am terrible at about me boxes so good luck getting anything decent:
-I am English, therefore my blood is actually largely tea, specifically chai.
-I also have a great fondness for cheese.
-I write, but not often. I have done some bloody good work though.
-I am actually quite short.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
-The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Makes me cry every time I read it.
-Will Grayson, Will Grayson by...you know who.
-The Wind Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami.
-The Harry Potter series (Azkaban holds a high place in my heart).
-The LOTR trilogy, and The Hobbit too.
-Mister B Gone by Clive Barker. The only book where the disregard of the fourth wall is essential to the telling.
-Anything by Mr Pegg, Mr Frost and Mr Wright.
-Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
-The Brothers Bloom
-The HP and LOTR films. I have marathoned the extended cut of all three LOTR films back to back, with commentary on. Feels like a nerdy achievement of sorts.
-The Fifth Element
...And I can't be bothered to continue. Forgive me.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
I have this really cool winter hat. One of those that has the bobble on top, and ear flaps. It's all fuzzy and blue and grey and warm... Second to the winter hat is any and all willing cats.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Felicia Day springs to mind as she seems so sweet and lovely... Maybe Danny Wallace if Felicia didn't want to happy dance with a strange short nerdette.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
Don't Forget The Book Action.
