Depression Stamp by SparkLum Depression Stamp by SparkLum
I saw this in the Group Description of #Depression-victims and asked if I could make it into a Stamp, and was given permission to do so.
For :icondepression-victims:

GIMP 2.6.11

If you have something to say, please limit it to critique on the stamp itself, not the message behind it. I have no associating with the Group, I simply thought it was a nice statement and converted it into a stamp.

I really like the idea behind this, very original. It caught my attention immediately.
The violet colour fits this stamp perfectly, because it creates a soft sadness, which only strengthen the message of the text.

The only downside is that there's a lot of text to read and it feels cramped/squeezed in to fit. I barely manage to finish reading before it switches to the next.

Though once I managed to read it all, it felt like something twisted in my heart. It's because this is exactly how it's been for me.

The whole context of this stamp is emotionally moving, exactly as it should be.
It's a job well done to get the message across. I really appreciate this. Thank you. :hug:

I agree with this stamp one hundred percent since most people tend to overlook the what I myself and everyone else who suffers from this stamp goes through

Actually... My depression is not from reality or over internet... I'm depressed because I have Aspergers syndrome, and for those who don't have it and says "But depression is a mental health problem" Those who have diagnoses like ADHD, Autism and Aspergers (probably more) they are depressed without knowing. I can come on thoughts like: Why am I alive? But then I remember I wasn't born to not make a difference. And just because I'm not cutting or starving myself does NOT mean I'm not depressed, because I kinda want to be able to show my arms...

This is true. I realized it myself after I survived it and I began crying for those who didn't make it.
