As someone who's had depression for years, I feel as though it's not a good idea, as depression forums usually just turn out to be the romanticization of my suffering and struggle. So, no.

Yes, reading some of the badly written erotic poetry here does depress me.

I Totally * UNDERSTAND *  russiamagda I also Have Depression Really Bad ,I Thought The Catorgy Of Depression Was A Good Topic To Talk About Because If You Bottle In It's Not Going To Help. I've Done It And It's Always Good To Let Some Depression Out. But I Fully Agree With U Also. Some Things In Want You Talk About Can Be Hurtful. I Think It Would Be Good For others To Lease Try It.it Never Hurt To Try It In See. But Thanks For Your Honesty And Thought
Thanks Harley xoxo

Definitely not. One of the main features of depression is that it is narcissistic and feeds upon itself. A category devoted to it would only encourage such narcissism and create an 'I'm more depressed than you' one-upmanship.

Finally, someone else who sees this the same way I do. It's like suffering is now a competition, with which we try to validate our pain upon others as worse, as if it were something worth bragging about.

I can see your point of view with the whole competition of suffering thing. The same thing happens in the drug poem category. I'm  guilty of that myself I think.   At the same time reading about the trails and tribulations of others makes me feel validated in a way. That I'm not the only one who's this fucked up in the head. That there is light at the end of the tunnel, I've read some dark poems on there that had a deep positive meaning. I get more out of reading a good poem on here then I do at Na. I think it is a good idea to have a depression category.  If even one person reads it and can find something positive in it then it is a complete success.
