Hamtaro: Ham Ham Heartbreak - Menu Screen
fuck my gay-ass life
why isn’t all of space dandy like the recent episode
"One day in the subway, James saw a red cat with a wound to the leg that likely resulted from a fight with another cat. It was obvious that the cat needed help. James could not pass and took the cat to the vet. With a little medical treatment and prescription drugs, the cat quickly recovered. At that point, James found it impossible to say goodbye to Street Cat Bob. Bob followed James everywhere he went. As James played the guitar on the street and Bob sat nearby, revenues increased dramatically. People found it difficult to pass when they looked at the cute kitty. James went on to write a book describing their adventures in the street which was full of life – both dramatic and comedic. In the book, James says that he could not have imagined how meeting Bob would change his life. His friendship with the cat healed him from a life that had been very hard. Most likely, if Bob could speak, he would say the same thing.”
Um, so here is a book I am going to go BUY… NOW.
Ultimate proof that cats are smart !!! more smart cats«
Cat intelligence is actually a pretty interesting topic in that the majority of studies on the subject basically have to end in the conclusion "we just don’t know" because cats are among the most uncooperative research subjects of all time. We know a great deal of cat sight, having used cats as the archetype for a vision-focused vertebrate/mammal, but we still know very little about what really goes on inside the cat mind.
ISTG THIS SHOULDN’T EVEN BE HUMANLY POSSIBLE
could you imagine messing up.. once.
the emergency services’ new number is really taking the piss
nah i’m going to some fancy-pantsy online public school substitute for my senior year so i won’t have a counselor to go to __ __”
i am still in contact with my english teacher from last year though and that’s good because she was like the only teacher i had who cared about me enough to try to accommodate me, bless her soul, so maybe she could help because i know for a fact that i can’t approach my family members with this sort of thing
ggg i really don’t like medicine since i’m afraid of pills (i can’t take them because i get really afraid that i’m gonna somehow choke on them) and i’ve never heard of antidepressants that come in any other form than pills so i’m fucked on that account
thanks for the kind words, tea, you’re a really great friend pppp ; ;
i consider it more “really annoying” than “serious problem” though but yeah i still want to be rid of this because it’s really holding me back ugh
aw, yeah that sucks. but yeah talk to your teacher, that would be a good idea. if nothing else she might have more suggestions for people you could talk to.
and ugh man i understand, i have always had a really hard time with pills. if it helps though, antidepressants are usually pretty small? like small enough that you could probably stick one in a spoonful of peanut butter or something and not even feel it when you swallow it
and no problem, i hope i was able to help ;; i hope you feel better!
apathy and difficulty motivating even if you don’t necessarily feel /sad/ are still symptoms of depression! like as someone who has struggled with the whole mental disorder package that sounds a lot like depression to me, and treatment would help
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa that’s terrible news but thanks for the help, tea
idk where i’m gonna get help though because mom probably doesn’t care or want to hear it and she’d probably feel ashamed to have a child in therapy but soon i’m gonna be on my own and how the Hell am i supposed to do the independent living thing when i can’t bring myself to get anything done
all the resources for depression on the internet seem to be for people with more serious cases, though so i don’t really know if they’re suitable for me or meant for my use and basically it’s such a mess :(
hmm, you’re still in high school, right? are you going to public school? it’s been a while for me but iirc there’s usually a school psychologist you could speak to? you could at least go to get a more educated diagnosis and ask for advice
also remember that depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain and it can be a result of anything really. from my experience (esp recently) regular exercise and a good diet can really, really help with depression and similar problems? so there are some steps you can take right now that don’t involve seeking therapy
i know it’s especially tough to take that step when you have trouble motivating but i promise that once you get over the first few roadblocks it gets easier
medication is something you also might want to consider? that’s something you can go to a general practitioner about. i know medication sounds like a big deal but tbh what you’re describing sounds a lot like how i felt a while back, and even a low dose of an antidepressant like prozac or something can give you enough of a foothold to start taking bigger steps towards feeling better
but you should def keep looking up resources even if you don’t have severe depression? you’re still important, and it doesn’t hurt to keep reading
brief otakon report:
it was super rad
i am exhausted today though so anything more in-depth will have to wait until later
