Are most people in GAG depressed?

I have noticed reading the comments and questions that a lot of people here are either depressed or were depressed at some point but they're battling it. I am curious to see how many people feel depressed and how many don't.

  • Back in May of 2015 when I joined, I was depressed, but since then I've gotten MUCH better. I wouldn't say I'm depressed anymore. I have my sad day, but I would say the amount of them are within normal ranges now.

    I voted B.

    Despite how many complain how GAG is so negative and such, it really helped me out of the spot I was in. It let me feel I was helping people out (which in turn made me feel better about myself) along with finding people to chat with on here and make friends. Even if they are 'internet friends' and in all probability we'll never meet, just having someone there helped out. GAG also helped because I was able to write about my problems and in various opinions rather than what I had been doing -- simply holding them in by myself.

    So yeah, I've been there, but I've gotten over it.

  • I think a lot of people are not depressed, but more so insecure! Some are so insecure they are depressed... which sucks!

    I mean I have been down and out, but never to the point where it effected my health. These things come in cycles for me, which I think is normal and just life testing me!

    I never let it get me down... and I feel for those people that just can't get out of the funk!

    • The optimist has downtime too? 😐

    • @abundantlyrich hahaha for sure... I am human! I usually don`t let things get me down for to long though!

      I just have to look at my life overall and smile... maybe get out on the kayak for a half a day or so and then I am all optimistically energized again! ;)

    • Fresh air do help regain our composure☺️

  • I have been for a few years know, been taking Mirtazapine for months but it ain't doing shit unfortunately.

    I think for depressed people, especially ones with insecurities, most notably their self image, this site is literal cancer, you cannot go 5 minutes without seeing a take or post about fuckers saying all guys who aren't ripped with abs and stuff look like shit and the likes of that. (I'm sure the same applies to girls, I just don't pick up on that for obvious reasons).

    But yeah, coming on here just makes me hate people that little bit more every time I login for 5 minutes.

  • I deal with depression. It's more common than people think, and I believe sites like this allow others to open up more about their issues than they would in real life.

  • I think as humans we're all made somewhat to be "depressed" but not the extreme depression. sadness is part of our emotions so most people are sad... as for gag, people have their days. you can't always be sunshine and rainbows you know. no one is perfecto.

  • I'm very depressed actually. I have clinical depression and it keeps getting worse and worse. I might end up destroying myself if I keep going on like this.

    • Please, see someone, @RainbowFanGirl. This sort of mental issue runs in my own family and with some meds and Good doctor and a more stable environment, things can get well and go well again, my friend. xx

    • @Paris13 thank you and I have been getting help.

    • Great, hope in time this will do some good and of course, a Good, understanding Doc always helps. xx

  • I think the majority of people on the planet are depressed about something. GAG users I would guess would be depressed about something in the relationship department.
