Maybe depression is worse in 1st world countries as opposed to 3rd world countries b/c they have to focus on their base human needs and here we have too many distractions. I’m just guessing right now but it seems like a good theory.
Also, I’m always looking at animal behavior and it seems like for most of the day they just sit around and do nothing but they don’t commit suicide. Maybe we set up too many pressures in our society. Maybe the key to happiness and health is just doing nothing/simple life. Humans are the only ones with such deep drives that while we have created many good things, we have gone too far and made life more complex than it needs to be.
it’s not the only illness victims get blamed for but it has one of the worst stigmas; which is why i’ve always felt bad for people who have std’s.
things that annoy me
1 When people tell kids/others to be grateful for their parents’ and how they fed/clothed them and sent them to school….That’s only the very basics of parenting and besides it’s a choice to have kids. No one should even have kids at all if it’s too hard to give your kid the very basics then demand they be forever thankful.
2 When people use a one time bad life experience for them to act completely self indulgent for the rest of their lives. I get that people need to do self serving things to get through rough times and even comfort themselves after it’s over for awhile…but not for it to go on and on forever. And also when someone says this I instantly feel bad for growing up with a peaceful childhood and I want to hang myself.
3 When people say things like “never let money get in the way of health/peace of mind/etc”. As in, no one should not go to the doctor because of money… Well that’s stupid because there are so many health things a person could do but doesn’t absolutely need to live. I agree that people should have occasional peace of mind or we would go crazy, but sometimes people should suck it up and deal with it because it’s impossible to be completely stress free and it’s really hard to have perfect health and do everything doctors suggests.
It’s a virus. It causes blisters. We ALL already have various viruses living inside us.
Do what you can to fight the stigma. Be kind to yourself is number one.
i feel sorry for people with std’s…
