Teenage Depression: The F.U.N. Disease Feeling like you are a boat sinking under the raging sea of life is the new normal nowadays. It is something that these weird doctors called psychiatrists used to really worry about, Major Depressive Disorder, but now nobody cares. Teachers let us take our pills if we seem “off,” and all the funny memes are the ones where we joke about how many pills we take each day. If I say, “Oh, I took 10 pills today,” then someone else will try and beat me by retorting, “That’s nothing. I took 15 pills.” And all the pills are black and blue so they are super easy to hide under clothes or the hoods that people usually have over their heads. No one wants to look at each other anymore. Apparently, about 60 years ago, during a year called 2016, people would only carry Advil, or maybe birth control pills for the girls. Nowadays, all I see is antidepressants, also called SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors). You can ask any teenager, I swear. Ask for some Prozac or Selfemra. They can hook you up with a really high dosage monthly for maybe twenty bucks and in less than 24 hours. Maybe some Paxil, Pexeva, Zoloft, Celexa, or Lexapro. They are all super common too. I usually take Pexeva. Or, ask some of the real drugged up teenagers, and you can get some Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors, or SNRIs. Those really make you feel amazing. I always feel a little more serene after those. It really mellows you out.
Trust me when I say…
