How To: Interact with a Depressed Person

Via http://http://www.robot-hugs.com:

I’ve been largely AWOL from gchat and facebook this past week, which is atypical for my internet-addicted ass.

This weekend, I got a few text messages from my usual buddies wondering what I was up to and if I was okay.

I am not okay and don’t have any advice for them to give me, but It was nice to know that people notice when I’m not around. (Just for the record, I’m only a little bit of a creep and/or weirdo.)

I’d also like to note that I’m happy to see webcomics lightening up serious topics and getting more exposure and understanding for mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

And to my depressed internet, buddies out there, also hibernating for the winter:  Surround yourself with friends (if you’re up to it) and love yourself.

    I’m happy to see you back. I noticed you’d been abnormally quiet on Twitter, so I’m glad to see you’re around. I hope things get better for you.

    That comic is amazingly accurate. I’ve learned to keep a fake smile plastered on my face at work, lest someone start trying to help me be less sad, in their bumbling ways. I just want to curl up in a ball for like a week, why is that so hard to understand?
