We 100% are not. 

And all the while being told what to think, what to say, how to act. Comparing ourselves to others from a young age, getting teenagers in the mindset to flirt with stress and anxiety with exams, so that if they do well, they can take more exams, often for a job that doesn't even exist yet. 

Who is telling you what to think, what to say, and how to act? Can you not just ignore them?

Social media can be shite

But it's just an outlet  

There's as much positive stuff being expressed and shared as there is shite 

Twitter comments depress me, just random folk arguing and trying to make each other look twats 

But these type of people existed before social media 

You might as well blame the internet 

And you'd be wrong

We used Meta for paid for media so it's how the model works. I do miss the old days though - radio, print, TV, loads of Out of Home, easier to do and costs more and less management; but there you go.

Actually I need to chat, looking at holidays next year but not being part of the millionaires club I'm working to a tight budget. 

Tight budgets are my forte.

If I said half the stuff that came into my head, half the things where I bite my tongue, I'd struggle to keep a job..

 

Oh..

 

Wait

That's just you controlling yourself though. Pretty sure we all have intrusive thoughts that are best kept unsaid.

Very hard to do when you’re an anxious teenager mate. I see kids younger and younger getting sucked into it. CAHMS referrals are through the roof. 
 

Was at suicide prevention training a few months back and so much of it seemed to come back to social media & all the things @only1swanny was talking about. 
 

Social media has its benefits but it shouldn’t be given to children. It shouldn’t be accessed by teens until they’re 17/18 & have been educated to prepare for it.

Didn't realise @only1swanny was an anxious teenager.

You're a clever lad Cheese with decent comprehension skills 👍

Have another read of his post where (after the fist point) he uses language such as "early age, teenagers and "they". His points are pretty valid. Don't follow RW and get caught up in irrelevant points.

I thought he was talking about his own experiences. Must have got the wrong end of the stick. No worries. 👍

You’re a very strange individual.

Fuck me, seasonal Mr Black Dog arrived Friday.

Obviously post seizure, the brain is a bit haywire, but that was getting better.

However, it's as if we went from full summer to autumn instantaneously. 

No doubt this bastard weather has brought it on a bit sooner, it's a cunt.

I'm with you brother! Feels like we haven't even seen a summer this year.

I do read this thread

and honestly I feel pretty lucky, because I see the shit some of you go through and count myself genuinely fortunate to have avoided it so far.

a broken leg is an outward sign of injury and is dealt with accordingly 

Weirdly, a damaged mind still seems to be loaded with some sort of stigma when it should be treated with the same level of attention 

all the best gents ❤️

Seizures and depression very much interlinked. Always here for you if you need

Stay away from home bargains. Christmas decorations are out on the next isle to the outdoor pools and sun cream!

Cheers gents.

Had a good night's sleep last night.

After 2 rough ones. 

Shaky shoulders and lower legs this morning, but definitely a bit better.

Lad's off to uni soon, and we've had some stressful times over his future, which hasn't helped.

Apron strings and all that!

There may be some stigma in some areas, but they're small, and sometimes driven by fear.

At the moment, there is a big social movement of acceptance and understanding, which is good in its own right, but this has also led to too many people deciding "they've got mental health" without remotely knowing the difference between a genuine illness and a difficult/stressful period.

That's why we have GP services etc.
