Illness? I Think Not.

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post  

why is it that unhappy people are considered ill? i'm pretty much incapable of being content and am just very pessimistic about life and humanity. now i count that as clear vision and being a realist. everything I've been through up to this point has made me the way i am. I am not ill. I see things clearly. i'm 35 and have many friends and live an active life. I would never just up and **** myself because thats a selfish hurtful thing to do. but the movie 7 pounds intrigues me and i'm thinking thats a great route to take. i've thought of that since way before i saw the movie . i liken it to taking a good transmission out of a car with a bad engine and putting it in a car with a good engine and bad transmission. isn't it better to have one working car than two broken down cars? before someone begins the whole value of life crap, i say the only in life is what you do. so i'm thinking over the next 7-8 months I'll get my body healthy and save some lives of people who want to be here. i hate this place and i hate humanity more than i love it.

Why don't you get healthy and help others with their emotional struggles, physical challenges......give your love? Why be a martyr? There are ways to feel good by being of service to others. Thanks for reminding me why I am here. I need a kick start. I don't see myself as being ILL with depression, but my brain does not work "normally" I do have a neurochemical imbalance...wha wha...Time to stop being the victim?

I know how it feels to be angry at the world and disappointed in life.

i think you ask the wrong questions. why not be a "martyr"? whats normal? being happy with the latest lexus? being obsessed with celebrity gossip? i loath normal. don't consider life so valuable. animals just want to live for the sake of living, we should be better than that. life is abundant. i can't help others with emotional struggles because i don't want too and don't understand how to. now i can fully understand how a bad heart could sap happiness and how a good one could revive someones life on many levels. if you think logically, rationally, healthy organs are worth more than life itself. they actually would provide life and are much more rare. only real question is how. i live a lifestyle where i could kind of fade away with out causing too much pain. i live alone and travel a lot. so it's not a big deal to not see individuals for months. i think people should be allowed to check into an organ transplant center and donate themselves entirely.

When a normally functioning person develops a symptom or set of symptoms that cause a dysfunction and/or disability in his life, it becomes an issue that medical doctors have to assess. In some cases, it could be an infection in the brain or a disease. In other cases, it can be cased by life events and its origin may line in the central nervous system, poor coping strategies, psychological vulnerabilities of physiological origin, learned behavioral patterns, etc. To say that depression is not an illness, is incorrect. It needs to be addressed on an individual case by cases basis. But make no mistake of it, the pain, the symptoms, and the affects are real. When otherwise healthy people that love and enjoy living become paralyzed by fear, obsession, depression, compulsion, etc. something has to have gone astray and needs to be addressed. This is not child
