*clears throat*

*cringes* I'm sorry, minna-san. I think that a lot of people took my last entry a little too personal. Not in the way that I intended it. I wasn't trying to tell you to "get over it." Like I said, I've been there, and yes, I have moved on. I know that it's not easy. I don't even remember how I finally did it, but it took more than a year to do it, and every once in a while I do get depressed too..

What I was saying, was that everyone seemed to be depressed. ^^; I realize that sometimes it's clinical, and other times it's just something that people make up, or sometimes based on really bad circumstances. *huggles you all* I just made a general observation, wondering why all of my friends were so often depressed. Again, I wasn't saying to get over it. It's not that I hate reading about it either. I don't at all! I want to hear about all your lives, the good and the bad! That's why you're on my friends list after all! I do wish that there was something that I could do, though. If there EVER is, be it a phone call, a drawing, a long or short chat, please don't hesitate to tell me!

*huggles* Sorry for the misunderstanding. I'm familiar with how depression works, I was just posting my comment out of a bit of worry. *huggles again*

My versional take on depression and yours are two different things. I can handle people bitching at me for what I say about it...but I'm sorry if it trailed to you.

For you and Elvy.
It's okay ... things got more heated than were intended.

I want to point out a phrase from my own post that may not have been emphasized as much as it should have been.

it gives the impression you're not making the effort to try and understand someone who is going through it. Whether or not that's true is irrelevant

Now, there is a time when it is relevant. Now I quote you.

If there EVER is, be it a phone call, a drawing, a long or short chat, please don't hesitate to tell me!

THAT is what people want to hear in the first place, but all too often it takes a tiff or a misunderstanding just to get there.

You, too, are on my friends list because I do care about what you have to say ... after all, if I just seethed silently and blew up at you in a week for no good reason, that wouldn't do any bit of good, would it?

What you said hit me (and others) the wrong way ... but you know, it's cool now. I know you aren't ignorant about depression (especially since you live with it too) ... so with the proper context everything can be resolved here.

I did not mean my reply as a personal affront to either you or Elvy-san, and I'm sorry it got taken that way.

For the record ... it took me about a year-and-a-half to get over the worst of my depression, and now I'm medication-free and (mostly) on an even keel. Or at least I like to think so. But occasionally I get a little too angsty as bishounen are wont to do.

Hang in there, and fight the good fight.

Love and peaches,

Hrm! this reminds me of another time you posted and everyone misintepreted/got it wrong again... and you apologised when it wasn't your fault. NOT YOUR FAULT ^_^

Down with drama, long live LJ!! ^_^

Off topic: Would you mind terribly coming down sometime to take some pics for me? I would <3 to see you; we could go to the bead store near my house! Also, I have a bunch of stuff to sell on E-bay and could use your digi-cam help. ^_~

Lemme know what you think! ^_^

Oh, yeah, I'd LOVE to take pictures! ^.^ Taking pics is one of my hobbies, that I need to take advantage of more often. =)

When do you want me to come? ^^ It's best for me if it's after Thursday. ^^ Thursday afternoon is my last final of the semester!! XD YAY!

Hmm... This weekend will be bad b/c I'll be in San Diego. What about some time the week after next?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 15th, 2003 08:12 pm (UTC)
I'm good for pretty much any time the week after next. ^^ Well, except for that weekend (the 28-29), because I'll be getting ready to leave on Monday for Expo. ^.^
