Personal Issues

Post  Slag on Thu Dec 01, 2011 9:03 pm

Well, after pacing around my house, contemplating suicide, I've decided that since I'm horribly addicted to the computer and that just feeds into my depression, the best course of action is to stop using the computer for a little while and work on my mental health. I'm sorry for anyone who might be hoping for my help, but I don't think I'm in the right state to be much help anyway.

I love you guys, know that much. Hopefully after a while I'll be able to come back a lot better off.

Sorry about any spelling errors, it's really hard to type through tears.

Holy shit, Slag.
I wish you the best of luck. I know how hard it is to break addictions; I had trouble breaking my addiction to coffee. Get better, man.

Get better, bro. Good luck! You'll be missed.

Well, now I feel like an ass.

It's been explained to me that I have this thing referred to as 'situational depression.' No idea what the official term is, or if there really is an official term. Basically, I'm usually not depressed, but certain things can trip me into a temporary bout of very severe depression. The bouts don't last very long, thank god, and I was done with mine in about a half hour. I sorta feel like shit, though, being horribly depressed takes a lot out of you.

Anyway, I will still not be hanging out quite as much as I usually do, since I'll be wedging in more healthy activities than sitting at my computer all day, but it was suggested that I don't quit the computer cold turkey since that could set off another bout. So, sorry for scaring everyone.

Do you have a picture of yourself, or preferably whatever avatar you usually use? I wanted to try something yesterday, but didn't have time to ask.

I have a feeling I know what the idea is, but anyway, here's a shitty, low-res pic of me:



Note the glasses are normally over my eyes, but they were glaring off the computer's light so I moved them.

That'll do nicely. I've been busy all day today, so I couldn't even begin sketching, but perhaps I'll still have enough creative steam left to get something done tomorrow. Or not. Inspiration is a fickle thing sometimes.
