    I remember being 14 years old and totally into death metal and black metal. I remember adults thinking that the music must’ve made me depressed because I was always sullen and sad. But that’s not the order of it. I became sullen and sad and then I turned to death metal. And I found a bunch of people just like me. The same for horror movies, literature and sites like Bestgore. I don’t think these turn people into depressed humans. I think depressed humans seek these refuges. I know not every person who visits Bestgore is depressed but almost everybody has been depressed or has a pretty horrible story from their past. And a lot of people are currently depressed. For those members who don’t relate to this, I get it. I’m just saying that people with issues gather in the same places, even by accident.

    In the UK young people under 16/17 are not “tested” for Depression even when referred for psych help and counselling. There is never a diagnosis of Depression. However, once young people turn 17/18 the rates of Depression under psych diagnosis correlate identically with the adult norms as far as percentages go.
    To put it simply, Depression is there from a younger age, it is a part of the Human Condition which young people are affected by as much as the adult population is. Medical and Psychiatric Services simply do not test for it, diagnose it or attempt to treat it in young people.
    Instead young people self-medicate with Death Metal, Glue and Self-Harm.
    Proper treatment could involve Captain Beefheart, Weed and a rigorous daily Masturbation regime.

      Yes, oddly this site seems to attract people who are down and despite the content being “negative”, it makes people happy. I think it’s being part of a community that people enjoy. And it’s people you can be yourself with. “Out there”, looking at dead people seems quite weird. “In here”, it’s quite normal.

    It’s been ten long years since depression and anxiety striked me, and they are with me to this day.

      @vgard123 Nebby – I think it seems to be a common occurrence here. I first came to this site around 2014 and I was down then. I got really busy and didn’t return until a year ago. I had just gotten injured, couldn’t work and felt down and it helped to be back.

        The community does, not the site itself, that’s why I still visit
