@iconography Didn't realise that when they called it "Let's Talk" it meant literally that and nothing else...

@iconography holy shit. That's just absurd.

@iconography I once had a psychologist give me a printout of things to do to alleviate symptoms of depression. It included helpful suggestions like "buy/sell stocks/shares", " reminiscing about old parties", and my favourite "flirting". Flirting. Cause when I'm so depressed I'm wearing the same clothes for a week and want to kill myself I'm in the mood for a good flirt. Frankly, chronic masturbation might be more effective than a fidget cube.

@iconography ok this shit has always pissed me off!!!! now that im thru the Intensive Long-term Therapy, this advice is good for maintaining good mental health. but before u have DONE the therapy, when u are still Very Distressed & In Crisis, when mindfulness just makes u More Aware Of How Shit U Feel, it is INCREDIBLY unhelpful!!! and u just Know theyre doin it for lack of funding/etc
