Thank you Kat 🙂 Log in to Reply whiskered-fish 4/30/2016 - 10:28 amYou’re welcome.Both “Adventures in Depression” and its sequel are both really good reads and really short. You can read them for free online. I recommend it. Log in to Reply Night In Atlantis 4/30/2016 - 5:02 amIf your environment is in part responsible for depression it’s foolish to think that willpower alone will bring about long lasting change if the environment stays constant. But it may give you the motivation to look at altering the things which have brought on depression and change them if possible.There is no quick fix, but many people do recover which makes you think. I do realise it is person and situation specific. Log in to Reply whiskered-fish 4/30/2016 - 11:27 amThank you for the advice, Atlantis.I’ve not really sure if I do believe in recovery, though. It may exist but I can’t be sure. Haven’t spoken to anyone who has claimed to recover. I do believe in maintenance, though. Staving off the wolves until your natural death. The question is whether or not that’s even worth it. Log in to Reply Cordless 4/30/2016 - 5:05 amI like this quote a lot. Log in to Reply whiskered-fish 4/30/2016 - 11:15 amI’m glad. So do I. Thanks, Cordless. Log in to Reply muspelhem 5/19/2016 - 8:37 amThank you for posting this. I really like the (comic’s) idea that you can hit rock bottom so resoundingly that you stop caring about other people’s opinions of you, and are set free. Log in to Reply whiskered-fish 5/19/2016 - 10:29 amHey, muspelhem, you’re welcome. Yeah, in a weird sort of way, the comic is pretty hopeful at the end. Although, I remember reading the comic years ago, when it was first posted, and I remember seeing a comment in the comment section that said: “Been there, done that, kicked its ass. The numbness is nice, but it never lasts.” It was a very foreboding comment. And sure enough, Allie made a sequel post a while later, about how things did get very much worse for her.I still wonder about how she’s doing. Log in to Reply muspelhem 5/19/2016 - 11:34 amI see. I found an interview with her from last summer. She seems to have an ambivalent relationship with attention/fame.My happiness also seems to be fleeting. Maybe it is because it never really has time to develop. Last autumn I felt like my life was headed somewhere good, but I based it on some rather precarious things like praise from my boss, attention from women, etc.I think maybe I was happier as a child for good reasons: I was surrounded by a loving family, my life revolved around the controlled environment of a school. So I was never alone with my thoughts and existential worries for unhealthy amounts of time.Anyway, have a hug 🙂 Log in to Reply Leave a Comment Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.Subscribe to comments: Don't subscribeAllReplies to my comments Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
