If feel like there has been a boom of depression in our generation, there’s no doubt about it with all this post 911 bullshit we have to deal with. I feel like in a way they’re trying to fit in, but at the same time validate their own problems. Nothing’s set in stone until you get a professional evaluation but if you have symptoms that fit you then you should maybe consider getting professional help. Mental illness is something that is getting used as a subject in media more and more and it doesn’t do much to help, whether they have the problem or don’t.
