Depression

I just wanted everyone to know that this subscription has helped me through some of the worst depression that I’ve ever had. Having a community here with people who are obsessed with DC also helps. Thanks.

Oh I had really bad depression but I didn’t tell them on here so when people use to be mean on here it made me feel really bad but I’m doing better now

It’s never easy to find the help desired. Sometimes, things get in the way, while other times, it can be hard to find what can be said to help. Listening does a lot, but when those who suffer from depression open themselves to others, the best direction to take is still unclear.
I know that this is not the forum for a long conversation involving these topics, but I hope outlets can be found to support when people are overwhelmed.

I am glad things have improved. And sorry for a somber former post. I hope you reach a long-lasting optimism.

Whenever I’m really depressed… like, at my lowest times… when things just won’t seem to get any better, I always read All-Star Superman to help cheer me up. I have framed Superman posters hung up around the house as well. Superman had always given me hope. (And while I’m not trying to shill) I can understand the OP. DC Universe helps me have more access to Superman comics than I otherwise would and all I need do is pick up my phone or turn on the tv.

Much like you, this subscription has helped me as well. Heck! DC comics in general has kept me literally alive. Seeing characters that are majestic, that always fight for others, and just generally are supportive has helped me to see a way that I can exist in this world. I am so glad that you have found a deep connection to DC as well. I love that this community brings us all together. Those of us that may feel like outcasts in our daily lives, but here we can love and respect each other in all of our geeky ways. Those of us with diagnoses can come together in understanding and support over our shared interest in comics. I am glad we are able to help out with your depression. I am so glad you are here @GreenBooks82!

@PrincessAmethyst, I really appreciate that. I agree with everything you say there! Nothing like having another world to escape to. I don’t have a lot of geeky friends so it’s nice to have some here. Although I wish there is a more social media aspect on here.
