Can this place make you depressed? Yes, very much so. Especially if you don't have the right frame of mind at the moment. I had to get away for a while for this very reason.

I try to keep positive posts. Most of my troubles i keep on pms so not everyone has my problems to read. So depressing i am on the inside.

I got depressed when people(site users) openly called me a liar, but also amateur psychologists offering "play diagnosis" for a laugh based on tearful posts full of typos made me leave the site for a couple of weeks, but I still lurked,(compulsive depressive) heh, like the mods say, if a post or something offends or disturbs or depresses? you, just report it?

I'm new to this site, but yeah, I can see how it can get you down. I've typically tried to steer away from forums like this because there is a lot of material that can get you down. But the positive stuff people are doing is great to see.

Most definitely.
I mostly just come here to hopefully talk to people/make connections(don't ask how it is going).
But if it helps some people, then obviously it's worth it.
Cheers.

I'm new, but I can see how it would. I do find it depressing when people list their meds on the signature line like badges of honor.

I try to avoid the venting and focus on the positive threads. I usually go straight for the Triumphs forum.

Like jpb said it's probably a bad idea to go to those areas lol
I usually just go to the chat (that's been pretty fun so far) or go in threads that are more lighthearted, like the ones in entertainment or triumphs

The same way rehab makes one wish to go back to drugs.

If anything, this place relieves my depression.

It certainly doesn't cause it.

Honestly, if this site is making you depressed, all I can think is "you're doing it wrong".

Some of the stories people share here have sad endings. On the upside, I don't feel so alone with this disorder. That is the one positive thing for me.

Yeah, this place reminds me that it's not just me and that they're a lot of people out there like me. I don't want to sound rude but I visit the frustration section for a good laugh...thinking to myself, that's totally me :D
