You, OP, are the kind of person of why I never talk my problems out. "Why would anyone be sad about their problems when there are people in a worse situation? ********. If you aren't starving to death, don't bother me with your pointless problems, cunt. If you're sad, man the **** up and deal with them or fix them like a man, faggot."

I may be drowning in red thumbs because of this but I don't give a ****: I hate people like you. Everyone have the right to be sad sometimes and that doesn't mean you're an attention whore. It means you're a ******* human. Sometimes, people need to talk their **** out with others.
If you're never sad and you never feel the urge to talk your **** out, I envy you OP. However, it doesn't mean everybody is like you.

It is not my problem if your reading skills are low. But I'll explain it in simplier words just for your tiny brain: Perhaps OP is talking about attention whores but in his/her post I only see that if someone's in a worse situation than you, your problems don't matter.
If you think you can't complain about your problems just because there are people in a worse situation than you, you're a ******* cunt.

Is that so? Well, I'm glad. It's hard to some people to open ourselves though. Not everyone can do that. For example, I tend not to talk about myself. Mainly because it's not my style, because of what I've pointed out above and because of several betrayals of people I thought who cared about me. I never say, for example, "man, can we talk something personal out?". I only talk about personal issues when I'm asked to. And even so, I tend to be laconic and cryptic. I've only opened myself to 2 persons and those 2 ended up by ******* me over.

talk to your doctor. I take citalopram, and it helps quite a bit.

I know, you probably feel apprehensive about taking drugs, but the feelings you have are likely caused by chemical imbalances that medicine can help treat.

I don't want to take drugs. I'd rather feel like this than take drugs like I'm crazy. It's a normal human emotion, and a suckish one at that, but I digress.

I disagree. I used to feel the same way you do now, and it's because I'm slightly manic-depressive.

whether or not the emotion is "normal" isn't the issue. the issue is with how often you feel this emotion and whether or not it is rational to feel that emotion when you do. taking medicine doesn't mean you're crazy, it means you recognize that there is a problem and that you can't physically change the chemical make-up of your brain.

I understand not wanting to take drugs, but trust me, they really do work. You should at least talk to your doctor about seeing a therapist if nothing else.

as in... literally died? because it is impossible to OD on citalpram

in that case, you seriously need to talk to a doctor.
those sort of feelings are unnatural and incredibly dangerous (I've had them before too). You need to either take something to calm you down and allow you to think more clearly, or find something you're passionate about and grasp onto it with all you can muster.

I think we've all been where you're at, but your true strength comes from pushing through it and becoming a stronger and more balanced person.

Hmm... that kind of social awkwardness is hard to fix. I'd recommend you that if you can, try to talk a bit more with your friends. Even if it's about nothing. People tend to like confident and talkative persons. And if you can, try to be smiley and try to laugh as usual as you can. They probably will like you more if you do that.

If it's only that, I've got 2 probable solutions for ya:
1: Talk about anything. Even if it's just something random, just talk about it. Whatever you can think about.
Or
2: Find out what are the more recurrent topics with your friends, try to get some information about it so you can talk. This have helped me. I know a little about every single topic even if I'm not really interested in that. You don't have to be an expert, just enough for you to talk and don't be "that quiet guy".

A very good way to meet new people is to join some form of event, job, or just sportsclub. Something! I can not guarantee that you will be comfy with it at first. But you wanna know why this is a good method? 'Cause you join a group that you are interested of, that means they will have the same sort of interests as you. Try it, as easy as i make it sound.

I think you're missing the point.

I understand yours, but I know a girl that just did an 'Amanda Todd' video and put it on facebook telling us all how she wanted to kill herself this morning because her one night stand from over a year ago doesn't want to date her. (there's more to it than that, but she deleted it so I cant remember the other ridiculous attention whoring in it)

She is what OP is talking about, not people who have problems. Even the girl I just told you about is allowed to be sad about that and want soe one to talk to, but the stupid god damn video is attention whoring.

I'm a pretty depressed person and...honestly, I can't tell anyone my problems..everytime I do it, they never take it seriously or some kind of **** of like that. The only person I used ot talk about my problems and she used to make me feel better and don't think about such things that much was my ex...and damn, I miss her like you have no ******* idea. I can't get over her no matter how hard I try. :/ Basically, my mom is the same kind of people you hate, I feel like the only person I can talk about my problems is my dad.

That's more or less my situation. I rarely want to talk stuff out but when I do, I'm always frightened they consider my problems irelevant or pointless.
I'm sorry to listen about that, I had a similar situation: I had this big crush on a girl a while ago. She made me feel like a human being with her friendship and when she ****** me over, she left me in a pit of apathy and distrust I don't think I can get rid of. I still miss her but every day, I miss her a little bit less. In real life, I try to be a smiley and joking person. I've realized that if you're behaving like a depressed person all the time (even if you honestly feel like that), you will end up alone. And I don't want that

Well, I'm not saying you should, but I really advise you to go out, go to parties, and do drugs. It boosts your confidence a thousand fold. Girls like confident guys, if you emit an aura of pure confidence and alpha, she will fall for you. And when that happens, you then **** her over AFTER you ****** her. It's something I learned, I was a bit the same as you. But I forgot about her when I found other (better) friends, went out with them etc etc.
Buckle up, man. Yea, life is though, but it would be pretty boring if it were easy.

Girls are like cats, once they got what they want, they throw it away and don't want to play with it anymore. Deny them what they want, the more they want it. YOU should be the one playing with her. Not vice versa

She's basically ignoring me, honestly. I still want to be friends with her, but it seems she simply doesn't want that...the funny thing is that she now doesn't trust me at all for anything, like everything I've done for her is just gone or never existed. I did helped her with a lot of her family problems, even more than any of her past ex have done with her. She simply says love is for childrens of for chumps...I can't really blame her, she grew up in a home without love.

You shouldn't want to be so attached to her. If she left you, the best you can do (even if it's hard and, a priori, it looks like a painful solution) is trying to forget about her. It looks like she's got some problems that can make yours bigger.

People tend to leave you alone when you act sad. My only advice for you is to look for someone you can talk your **** out and just pretending you're fine and smiley with the others. That's what I do. I won't lie, it's not an easy nor ideal solution but it's better than ending up alone. However, I'm sure you'll end up by feeling better eventually

You got it all wrong bro. Yes everyone's sad sometimes but OP is commenting on the fact that the hobo didn't put himself in the situation. He didn't put on ridiculous make up or take pictures of himself pretending to be depressed. Everybody is sad but thinking your some sort of special person because you have emotions is retarded.

considering the title is "Real Depression vs An Attention Whore" emphasis on real depression, I'm willing to bet OP understands how depression works, and is instead referencing people who broadcast their problems in public in order to garner attention.

granted, this is a form of Münchausen syndrome, and should be treated as any other mental illness

I agree with you. Even though I'm a sensitive man and I cry and get pissed alot (being pissed is more of my moods but happiness is the same as being pissed off), friends of mine call me a faggot for it.
But the reason why I have these kinds of feeling is because these kinds of moods make you more of a human. Being happy counts too. I hope I'm right...

But then again:
Moods is more human. Because Happiness is your feeling pissed off is your feeling, and sadness is your feeling. If you feel like **** today, then that mood changes. Changing moods is part of life and if you don't have one of these moods your just a lifeless animal. Even though, I'm not offending the lifeless people (like emos). They can do whatever they want with their own life, lifeless or not. Everyone here has a life. Even the people who say "No, I do not have a life." Children is an almost finished progress of life. And when they become teen, welcome to life.

When you acquire resources to solve minute problems, your life doesn't magically beging to fart rainbows and happiness. Instead it evolves new problems beyond the reach of your newly acquired resources. For example, I don't worry about being hungry, or figuring out where I'll sleep tonight, because I have resources like money, and a bed.

Instead I went to school, where I now have to deal with the dickery that is the University DJ 4DM1Nistration. I can throw my bed and money at them all I want, but I'll just end up in the exact situation, 2 credits short of full time and the potential of not being able to take the class I want to because "we don't offer it at that time". Is it as immediate a problem as the homeless guy who might need a sandwich? No, but if I don't solve this problem, it holds the potential to spiral into that problem. Will it happen? No, because I know how to be flexible and work around the system. So do I whine about it? No. Is it still annoying as **** and frustrating as hell? Hell yes it is.

The difference between someone who's truly depressed, and an attention whore isn't their class standing, it's in how they deal with their problems. Some homeless people, for example, get proactive. They look up jobs and inch their way up. Others exploit the hell out of the system and rake in sympathy money. THAT is the difference...

Yes true there's talking it out with a friend or family member and being sad around friends. But trying to look sad every you go for people you dont even know well or complaing about it to anyone else or expressing it with any intent to make people know you're sad instead of just being sad with out caring what others think about you. To complain is just weak and absurd in my opinion. Cause ANY type of complaint can be over looked and avoided by being thankful. And I don't really care who you or what's wrong with you I believe complaining is never an option or right I should say.

I partially agree. However, even among your friends, you can usually find that person who says "man, that problem is nothing. Look at that poor homeless.. that's a true problem, not yours!".
Not even if you care I'd tell you about who am I nor about a single one of my problems, mainly because I neither know you (ergo, I couldn't care less about your opinion) nor it's my style to talk about myself too much.
Complaining usually fixes nothing but talking stuff out loud can make yourself aware of a possible solution to your problems. It can be a relieve and it costs nothing to listen. That, of course, doesn't mean you gotta be all sad every single time.

Sometimes there's a reason behind that as well. I have a friend whose both parents hit her (her dad smashed her guitar today and texted her a picture of it because she locked herself in her room). She's not actually in any way trying to get attention; she just wants to be left alone, but imo it's completely understandable if those who grow up in such environments crave attention and approval from other people (usually girls with daddy issues).

She's not poor, starving (except when she does it to herself ofc...) or anything, but if she would complain about her situation then she's bloody well entitled to do so(this is directed towards OP, not you).

TL;DR sometimes there's a reason why people cut themselves and seek attention, and it's usually not being grounded.

It's not that easy. First, she's 19, so she's not exactly a child anymore. Second, she doesn't want to, because that would forever ruin her relation to not only her parents but also those reatives whom she likes. Third, there's already other adults who know some of the story, so she is getting help. It's sad, but hopefully she'll move away from them soon.

Depression is where you wake up one day and your brain decides it doesn't really want to keep working. There have been millionaires and billionaires who have committed suicide. There may be a lot of people out there who fake depression, but more than likely most of them truly are depressed. Hell, most PEOPLE in this world could be diagnosed with some form of depression, most of us aren't happy-go-lucky people after all.

Some people in ****** situations aren't depressed at all. Hell the happiest time I ever had in my life was when I was 14 years old, and me and my mom were homeless. ****, the sheer freedom that we had at that time made life outstanding. Yet now I live in a 2 story sizable home and I've felt the effects of depression. Homeless people aren't always depressed, and sheltered folk can be depressed.

I never said ANYTHING about the context in which any one can be depressed, I'm literally saying some people act depressed when they're not for attention, nothing more nothing less.

The richest people in the world hate themselves, hate their families, and hate each other for the constant competition.   
   
The middle class has a rate of drug addiction that has quadrupled in the past 4 years.   
Overdose overtook car accidents as the leading cause of preventable death. (not including diseases.)   
   
In rough neighborhoods in america, people are killed every day by gang/domestic/gun violence. I know a family of 12 that is now a family of 3. The mother, and her 2 daughters are left.    
   
Homelessness has become a growing problem in the U.S. (especially after the mortgage crisis and recession) some of the people who were doing the best are now living day-to-day out of hotel rooms.    
   
It really ******* bums me out that people think like this.   
You don't know what people go through, so don't judge.

What if your problems aren't as bad as that first guys, but you're afraid to actually talk about them because you think everyone will jump to the conclusion that you're the second guy, then by keeping it inside, you end up making things worse for yourself?

Noone said your problems don't matter, in the title OP says "vs. attention whores" aka people who turn every little drama into a matter of depression and spam their FB wall with it.

Let me rephrase - What if you aren't trying to be an attention whore and just want to talk to someone (Problem shared is a problem halved, etc), but you can't because you think everyone will jump to conclusions, hence forth you keep it to yourself?

sharing your problems, and making up **** andl ooking like a make up kit are different things in my opinions, the guy there is an attention whore, he tells everyone his problems that he overexaggerates or can easily fix/completely his fault, while you are genuinely needing help so you consult a friend or family or something.

I never had a dad in my life. My mom died when I was seven from her boyfriend pushing her into a wall. Instead of her just ending up making another hole in the wall, she hit a stud. Her neck broke and she died. I had to live with that asshole for my entire life after that. He beat the **** out of me on a regular basis until, when I turned 16 I moved out. He was never convicted of murder because he refused to take a lie detector test and said that she "tripped" on some shoe boxes lying around. To this day I still have trouble coping with the **** I've been through. Nobody needs to be posting what are and are not "real" problems. STFU. This reaction picture pretty much sums up how hard it was for me to even write about this.

I never had a mother figure in my life, really. I lived with my mom up until I was 4 and lived with my dad. I'm with him right now, 11 years later, and last year, as school was finishing up, I was told my step mother (Not my actual step mother, but she was a great mother figure) had died of heart failure. She lived a horrible life. She was sexually assaulted, left in the street when she was 10, was forced into drug abuse. Up until highschool, when her and my dad met. He helped her through a lot, and I even remember being there to hear things when I was so young that only now I understand. I use to loath her, and it killed her every day. My brother (Her actual son, my family tree is a piece of **** that's a mile long, okay?) also didn't like her much. She cried every night for our love, and I was too young to understand. I miss her so much. I actually just visited her grave yesterday.
