    started a topic do you get support for depression here?

    do you get support for depression here?

    Would you recommend Interpals for people to get support for their depression? Have you helped a friend who was depress here? Have they helped you?

    I mean maybe you did not even come here specifically to get help for depression but during the course of wanting to learn about language and culture did it help you with feeling good about your life? did you make friends you were able to confide to?

I've helped quite a few users here on the forums over the years...

    God bless you for that. Doing so must have taken a lot of your effort and valuable time, both of which I cannot afford, sadly. I am also aware of this kind of issue on here, but it is quite heart-warming to see that there are a few neighbourly and kind people on here to bring others to succour. Just for the record, I have embarked on something similar before. It happened in my salad days on a website called seven cup of tea or suchlike. I cannot remember the exact name off the top of my head. Initially, it felt great to contribute to the betterment of people's feelings. Be that as it may, over time more and more self-opinionated snowflakes had accumulated, who instead of thanking or appreciating me for listening, decided to criticise everything in a most nit-picking way, e.g. blackmailing me to be faster and spend more time with them, or else they would leave bad feed backs. The long and the short of it is that my endeavours became too ridiculous in the end.

    Very true Richo. However, some people find it easy to open up online because they won't feel judged as compared to sharing it in person. What I've also realized is some users here on forums are also going through some form of mental illness , hence they tend to take it out on other users. I've helped quite a few users here on the forums over the years. It's very unorthodox and not every member in the forums has time to listen to other peoples problems but personally I do recommend this place to be the last option for some people needing a friend to talk to. Gone are the days when the word penpal had a meaning. Cheers!

    Yes, sure, professional help plus support from friends and family would be the best combination for the depressed. In general, friends and family giving support is very important in everyone's life, be them depressed or just experiencing some trouble or just when life goes on as usually.

    Of course, people can make friends online too whom they can chat and share things with too but as for the site itself, it won't help for sure, moreover, it is best to never share any personal details with strangers online and, personally, I would support a friend, a family member if they were depressed but I always avoid depressed strangers online or in real.

    Sadly, the amount of toxicity above per se is quite... depressing.

    It's easily treated so don't suffer in silence, see a medical professional who will get you back on track in two to three weeks.

    Oh, really? I guess everyone who saw how you acted with the girl you've started discussiong with again will never forget your exceptionally repulsive remarks and cheap insults so if I were you, I'd put this fake chivalry of a failed knight aside.

    I find it extremely amusing that my unique interests, alongst with the four languages I speak, truly bother you; otherwise, you would not have brought them up in such a malevolent and desperate way. Feel free to talk about how bitterly you want to dye your hair, and what kind of high-heel shoes will satisfy your poor needs, and how much you despise men for not having married you; however I full-heartedly apologise that these things are not quite my cup of tea, wenchie. You see, I have bigger fish to fry.
    There's no point to pretend about great needs, uniqueness and bigger fish to fry because those who know you on here know about your attempts to sell your unique lessons of Old English to the gullible

    If you speak of marriage, failed knight, I'd comment on it too - I doubt you've found your princess so this must be the reason of your despising women for having run away from you. OK, waiting for another round, good to see you're slowly showing your real face again....Just, please, do not ask me to take care of your account any more as I'd report you again and don't shove your lessons of the dead language because I've been learning through corresponding with those who speak contemporary English. Ha, bet you've come back as no one wishes to listen to you even for free, let alone paying money

    I am not the one who began to spark this argy-bargy; the perpetrator can be read right above. Therefore, this is the pot calling the kettle black.

    Incidentally, I am not hungry, cheers. But that should not hinder you from making some juicy faggots. Don't forget the gravy though.
