I thought it would be nice to write an uplifting story for once.
Depression is not a joke. It is a real thing that some people experience, and therefore we must help them in the best way possible. According to statistics, it affects roughly 6.7% of the American population. Understandably, many people respond to the illness in different ways. For example, they may never wanna talk to you, be emotionally drained, or just binge-eat loads of junk food.
For one guy at the end of the line, he decided to take a long trip from Austin, TX to Mexico City in order to commit suicide. After arriving in Mexico, he had so much sex & drugs that he decided life was actually worth living. In his own words:
“One thing lead to another, and I got a room above a whore house equipped with a heart shaped bed, a stripper pole, and a hot tub.”
He then continued to say:
“I spent a full week snorting coke off t*ts, popping pain meds, drinking tequila, eating handfuls of Viagra to fight the whiskey/coke, and had three FFM threesomes. Somewhere in the midst of my coke-fuelled orgy, I decided life wasn’t so bad after all.” I guess it’s like Hunter S Thompson always said; “I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol or insanity to anyone but they’ve always worked for me.”
However, the anonymous redditor has specifically stated that “this didn’t cure my depression. It convinced me not to kill myself.”
If you have been suffering with depression, your GP will be happy to talk with you about any problems that you face. Alternatively, we are always happy to have a chat if you are feeling low.
