Aww, thanks. Depression is a bitch and – like I said to someone else just now – my brain just hates me today. Nothing is wrong; in fact, I objectively had a good day (when I wasn’t asleep). But depression doesn’t care about that, it just fucks your shit right up.
You can ask me anything. Literally anything.
Yeah, that’s true. I haven’t been depressed in a few months, not since I found Jack’s channel, but I still get scared it’ll come back, because I know it will, it’s just a matter of when. But it makes me enjoy my good days so much more, to the point where almost every day since then I would kinda just think to myself “I’m so glad to feel happy. I really just feel happy”. It’s an emotion most of us take for granted, but because I know such deep sorrow, I can fully appreciate happiness.
Aaaanyway, I rambled for way too long. I wanna ask a proper question, and I think I got one: Do you play video games? If so, what’s your favorite game so far? :p
I went through a rather nasty depressive episode before I regularly began watching Markiplier’s channel (back in April). Mark’s humour helped pull me out of it, for the most part, and I was able to keep treading water until I could get my prescriptions changed.
I had felt dead inside, and was afraid I’d have to go back to the hospital (when I hadn’t been there since 2012). How I feel right now isn’t nearly that bad, but it still sucks.
And you’re right, it does make you appreciate the good moments more. So, silver lining? Also, I have a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday so, if this goes on for more than a day or two, my doctor can help right away.
I love video games. And actually, my faves are the classic Nintendo stuff. Kirby, Mario, Spy vs Spy, Ninja Gaiden….
I’m in the process of getting a therapist (if they would fuckin call us back. Lmao people out here with all these friends and I can’t even get a call back from a fuckin therapist’s office XDD), which is slow-going, but I’ll feel more secure once I have a support system in place.
And fuck yeah, Kirby is mah boiii! Still have Kirby Super Star Ultra for the DS, which was basically my entire childhood lol I actually unofficially broke a world record for that game once, but I’m pretty sure someone has beaten it by now lmao
I actually have the original Nintendo system here at home. I also have an emulator program on my laptop.
I also love the old-school computer games, like Where in Space is Carmen Sandiego? and Oregon Trail. Playing those on my DosBox really takes me back.
Ooooh lucky! I wish I was around to play the original Nintendo systems, but alas, I wasn’t born yet lol I was born in the era of the DS and Wii though, so I don’t have many regrets. Still, I would love to feel the controller of the original console in my hands
I was pretty little when we got the Nintendo, and when I was about 14-15, we got the original Playstation as well.
I loved playing Tetris Plus, Gex: Enter the Gecko and Crash Bandicoot on the PS1. We also had the original Castlevania too.
Oh man, I have to play Crash Bandicoot. I heard it’s really good! And Castlevania. There’s a lot of older games I wanna play someday :p
There are sooooo many good classic games.
