Thanks Chris - hopefully this will encourage others to seek help and human connection before it's too late.

Depression is an Offline Event

In the last several weeks, two people that I've known from online have taken their lives. In both cases, there were tweets or Facebook posts or Google+ updates that hinted that things might be falling apart. But we rarely notice such posts. We rarely hear them loudly, because they aren't Siri jokes or cats dressed like astronauts.

Depression is tricky. People seeking to connect and get solace online, it's not really going to help. You can't count on your Twitter following to pull you out of a depression. You can't feel floored when your online friends don't hear you loud and clear. Remember that everyone is living out their own biography, and they might not be as aware of what's been going on with you.

Seek help offline. Visit a priest or a rabbi or whatever religious person makes sense. Visit a shrink. Talk to your doctor. Often times, depression is a medical problem that is exacerbated by experiences happening in your environment.

You're not alone, but the online world makes it really hard to see your pain. Things move too fast, are too shiny, and we are all hurrying around. The online world can make you feel more alone when you're feeling sad.

Get help early. Don't feel like you are a failure because you need some help. The strongest people in the world get help often, in many forms. You are worth it. Please, seek help offline and then come back and chat with us, too. Okay?
