How many people here had the realization that they watch anime to help with depression?

It's like crack, any time I'm feeling down I just load up the cutest, colorful stupid anime and instantly it cheers me up. I wonder...is it unhealthy?
>>
So anime isn't doing it for you anymore and you need shitposting to get your "fix" now?
>>
>>101834799
I watch it to keep up the little charade of hope that I have left, thinking for the short while I watch it thy life might actually be as bright as it is in them. Same reason I play games or read books. To drown myself in false hopes until I can't comprehend reality enough to care
>>
>>101835230
you can at least console yourself that the hope or joy you feel, is real. whether it's from something that actually happened or from watching anime, the feeling is very real, and it's fantastic that your experiencing it
>>
Watching happy shows that you enjoy isnt a bad thing, but for my depression I'd always want to suplement Anime with perscription drugs and therapy.

So what? If the alternative is to just lay around being depressed or to get fucked on drugs?

Stop shitposting and learn to type and some grammar.

>Fucking Wasurenagumo
>>
>>101835797
if you're suplementing that's good, but i dont have anything to help me other than anime. i feel like i still function the same socially and mentally, the only thing that's changed is the amount of anime i watch. it just helps...too well. i feel like i'm going to realize at some point the effects it's had on me
>>
I watch anime because I like it, but it does help with escapism, depression and all that shit. But if you're watching anime solely for escapism then you do need help
>>
>>101835901
haha you caught that reference :p
i didn't find it depressing, just more of a mindfuck
>>
>>101834799
>is it unhealthy?

Of course. It's escapism. Can't you see? It's not healthy!
>>
>>101835797
Anime is one of the ways I deal with depression. Exercise, therapy, diet and drinking plenty of water help too, but even all that together isn't enough so I think I'll see my doc about medication.
>>
>finish LoGH
>lost all effort to regularly watch anime again

I'm now stuck in a pit of yuri reading only yuri manga and watching yuri anime as well as playing video games.
>>
>>101836133
Do it bro, best decision I ever made!

Keep up the rest though. Especially the anime.

Kill yourself or go back to wherever you came from. Be that tumblr or facebook

I watch anime and get fucked up on drugs.

Those are my only two hobbies.

hows that working out for you? can't tell if that's a bad thing or a good thing

only way i'd see it as bed is that it's a specific subgenre and it's not as readily available as others

man that must be exhausting

>>101836185
Me too, altough I went and lost myself in 300 hours of monster hunter. I'm still a bit alienated of regular scheduled anime and got half the last season in backlog. It hurts ;_
>>
>>101836471

Fuck off, retard.
>>
>>101834799

Used to. Depression's gone thanks to therapy and meds. Still watch anime, but I enjoy it a lot more now.
>>
>>101836471
Again, just kill yourself.
>>
>>101836663
hmm...i didn't really think about that. anime makes me so happy in comparison with depression, it didn't realize i could enjoy one of my prime interests even more without depression.

i thought anime was the only thing that wasn't shit, but i didn't consider depression was affecting it too. thanks i guess, now i have a goal
>>
Is anyone else's report button broken?

Ever feeling depresed?
Go watch some healing, of something sad as hell. My fallback anime are mostly Saikano and Lucky Star.. But anime as a whole is a powerful drug. I tend to mix other hobbies for feeding the depression, but they don't quite make it.
>>
I've noticed that I do tend to watch a lot more anime when things are bad for me. It's not the healthiest thing to do but it's a lot better than the alternatives.
>>
>>101834799
No, that's just moeshit/SoL watchers.

/a/ is not your blog, you fucking faggots.

/a/ - Your personal blog.

Yes I do, but it's really not that strange. Legions of depressed normies do the same with sitcoms. Moe slice of life is literally the same feeling as watching a sitcom, if you replaced the humor with cuteness.
>>
>>101836874
I know that for me, it applies for any genre. I can imagine it's stronger for moe or SoL's because it stresses the positivity a lot more than other genres.
>>
>>101836884

No. Go kill yourself. /a/ is not your blog.
>>
>>101835996
>:p
Fuck off, idiot.
>>
I actually like anime, so when I'm feeling like shit I avoid it like the plague, same with all my other hobbies.

I learned a while ago that the best way to deal with sadness and depression is to stop trying to find a way to distract yourself from it and deal with it like a human being.
>>
>>101837035
Nah, that sounds like a hassle. Weather you like it or not, anime is a damn fine way to wash your mind with.
>>
>>101837035
so...what constitutes dealing with it? not trying to be happy and letting yourself be depressed?
>>
>>101837462

Kill yourself.

That would explain why people on /a/ are such bitter pieces of shit now.

you're repeating yourself :p

Everything helps with depression, be it positive or negative. I don't see the point.

Walking helps with depression.
Talking helps with depression.
Going outside helps with depression.

Are those like crack to normals? Most certainly.
