Sickening

I just went to a depression chat room.

Recommended Posts

I went in a depression chat room on yahoo, just looking to vent, and I have a pic of my acne on my profile. Anyhow, everyone started recommending different cleansers, products, etc. I was like, WTF? Shut the fuck up, assholes! You know, like I haven't tried everything in the world? If I hear one more, "have you tried pro-activ" statement, i'm going to fucking lose my mind! I am sick of people spouting off bullshit as if they know about the problems at hand. That's like me suggesing slimfast for an overweight person. That's like a real estate agent trying to perform surgery. I wish people would just keep quiet about things they don't have a clue about. If you don't know, simply don't offer "advice." Sympathize, yes, but don't act like you know how to solve these issues.

Just really hurtful.

did u actually say u were depressed about acne or they just looked at your photo and started giving u advice?

i guess they were trying to help u..u cantell if its help or if its an insult..so i wouldnt get upset about it. if u have acne u have to expect stupid comments or people tryig to offer their advice..i always think when this happens, it makes me stronger. coz u wont always have acne.

I know what you mean. But for those who have no acne, it seems like it would be so easy to get rid of. Like there is any quick fix... My father once told me I should wash my face or something.. yeah right.

Chat rooms can be hard. Back in my junkie days, I'd visit NA chatrooms (Narcotics Anoymous). Problem was, I was visiting them all strung out and wasn't making any sense. And they kept asking me "You done yet?"

"Done with WHAT?" I'd say. "Feeling like shit?"

"Yeah. Are you done feeling like shit?" they'd say.

But that was different. Getting off drugs has a pretty standerdized set of steps - get. off. drugs. Getting clear has no such path, no quick fix. Next time they start recommending things to clear your face -

start recommending anti-depressants. Or perhaps tell them to "snap out of it." If they don't get the fact that you are suggesting just as ridiculous things to them as they are to you - find another chatroom.
