This comic is for anyone who thinks depression is something that you just need to ‘deal with’ or ‘get over’
They left out the part where he replaces his old dull human hand..FOR A MEGA CYBORG HAND THAT MAKES TEA! You do deal with it and you do get over it, been there done that. Not doing anything doesn’t help, actively working to get over it makes you stronger.
This post seems to have reared it’s head again, thereby also rearing some of this kind of response.
You are right. Not doing anything doesn’t help. But telling a depressed person, “just get over it” is actually harmful. I’m glad that you have dealt with your depression well, but telling others to “just get over it” is not helping them deal with it. Depression, much like this mangled hand, requires professional help, not one-sentence suggestion from people who don’t know how to help. Your mega cyborg hand that makes tea sounds fantastic, but I know I would need a doctor to help me get it - I couldn’t just snap it on to my bloody stump.
And in the end
We are just
