Being (Depressed and Anxious) and Nothingness


File

Wanna hear something surreal? My life was more interesting when I suffered constant anxiety and depression. Weird, but true.

While Nietzsche broke it down into more black and white terms, progress and the pharmaceutical industry have literally blurred the lines between one’s biochemical and psychological state, at any given point in their life, and the void of induced abandonment, where the heights and depths of cognition and emotion are leveled with pills, pseudo-psychology and banal entertainment packaged and sold to make you feel better that you actually live a rather boring life. It’s a brave new world, and we all live in it — whether we like it or not.

But if it makes you sad, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

    That’s why I don’t take antidepressants (even though I should) – because I don’t feel like myself on them. I feel like a husk. I’d rather have the highs and lows of the depression. I think the pills do a lot of damage to a lot of people.
