help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful

DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL 

yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable

You hurt.
All the time.
Constantly.
Every second.
But most of the time you don’t let me see it.
I don’t know if it’s to protect me
Or yourself.

There’s nothing more aggravating, more infuriating, Than knowing you are hurting.
Knowing that someone made you hurt,
And I can’t do a damn thing about it.

I know that things are so fucking hard right now,
Baby, I do.
But I swear on my own fucking life
that things WILL get better.

And I know people tell you that all the time
But it’s the truest thing that I have ever written.

I just want to take you into my arms
And wrap you in an embrace
And keep you from harm.
I want to take you away to a place
where no-one will ever be able to hurt you again.

But as much as I would love to take you away
I can’t.
Not now at least.
So until then I will make you a promise.

I promise one day you won’t feel the roughness of his hand on your back
You will only feel the love from mine.

I promise one day
A kiss from your children
Will be the only thing you will need to get through the day.

I promise that one day you will never again feel the need to push that self destruct mode on your wrists.

I promise that the one day
You will only know laughter
And happiness
And love.

A quick reminder for anyone who has ever felt like they are lost.

You are not alone.

I see so many pro anas messaging anti pro ana bloggers (anonymously of course) saying that we aren’t helping anyone.
But honestly, we are.Are we changing the world? No.Are we ever going to put a complete end to the pro ana community? Probably not.
But we are helping people.I see plenty of messages posted publicly of former pro anas admitting that the apac made them realize that what they were doing was wrong and having their blog terminated really made them rethink their behavior.Having their blog terminated made them realize that starving them self was not the way to go about things.
I’ve also seen a lot of messages of eating disordered people whose eating disorders started when they came across pro ana content.Well, with apa bloggers reporting pro ana blogs, the number of pro ana blogs is decreasing.Slowly, but it is still decreasing.And with the number of pro ana blogs decreasing, the chance of someone coming across one is decreasing.
Maybe we aren’t making a big difference, but we are making a difference.We’re not only showing some pro ana bloggers that eating disorders aren’t diet plans, but we’re helping to decrease the chance of someone coming across that harmful content.
