52. Seriously? You *want* to live on the street?

Because it sounds *easier* than getting your crap together and getting some help?

Look, I have family members who have made all kinds of interesting choices, and I have to tell you, this post made me VERY angry with you.

Depression SUCKS. Are you getting it treated? If not, WHY NOT?

Here you are, with "squandered opportunities" and a family that is supporting you. Dude, your time is running out -- your parents are NOT always going to be here to foot the bills, and you have an OBLIGATION to make the world a better place.

I do not care how you do that - volunteering, working, raising a family, raising awareness -- we need you to make a contribution to the planet. And if you can't because you are suffering from crippling untreated depression, then google "therapist" or "free help with depression" and for the love of all that is holy, GET SOME HELP.

We need you. We need you DESPERATELY. There are so many people out here who don't have basic necessities, who are living on the edge of disaster, and WE NEED YOU to HELP.

Do you need medication? You live in Canada - GET ON IT. Do you need to stop self-medicating? THEN STOP. Do you need to control your blood sugar / eat a healthier diet? THEN DO IT.

Turn off the television, put away the distractions (whatever they are), and GET SOME HELP.

If you need some ideas of how you can help make the world a better place (and I am NOT talking about you leaving it), DUers will happily chip in and tell you about all the things we need done. I am *personally* completely overworked at the moment, and could really use some help re-vamping a website for a non-profit. Want to help?

We also have Wish-A-Doo - the list of things we can set you to work on there is large. Also, if you have any carpentry skills, we can set you up doing handyman projects for those without skills. Can you push a lawn mower? Tis the season, and if you go take a walk, you will probably find a couple of homes in your neighborhood where someone could use a hand.

If you are "living the dream" where you are able bodied and all of your earthly needs are being provided - food, shelter, etc. - then GET OFF YOUR ASS AND HELP OUT.

And the FIRST PERSON you need to help out is YOURSELF, SO PICK UP A PHONE AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT RIGHT NOW!!!
