    Yeah totally, it's not a subject that everyone naturally understands unless they've either had it themselves or know someone with it. But of course most people would be inclined to assume that a person should be happy when there doesn't seem to be a "reason" for them to feel sad or whatever. Think of all the famous people who have ever comitted suicide.. look at Britney Spears, she appeared to "have it all" and look what happened to her.. she's mentally unstable yet has millions, 2 beautiful boys, fame.. it can happen to anyone.

    I agree with a PP about these super gushy love messages being more annoying. The ones that go like "My life can not be more perfect. Perfect husband, perfect kids. Life is good!"
    Then literately an hour later it's like "F@cking idiot just burnt my toast! He can't do anything right! I'm sick of having to do everything myself!"

    I do have one friend who always threatens to delete his profile permanently and then comes back 2 hours and pretends nothing happened

    If a close friend of mine was posting negative messages all the time, I think it was time for me to go and have a cuppa with her/him and not hide her/his statuses.
    If it bugs you and/or you dont care, just hide the statuses or remove the person all together.

    I suffer anxiety and depression... but yeah, I tend to think this is more of a case of "look at me!" than much more.

    Again, wasn't directing that at you personally, anyone who hasn't had it wont neccassarily get it, you know what i mean? And even people who have been through really bad times, depression as a mental illness that seems to appear for no reason is another thing all together.

    I have depression and I've only ever sooked on there once...and everyone jumped on me asking what was wrong etc. I just felt really down and wanted to tell the world to get f$&@ed.

    I think everyone is entitled to a whinge now and then but people who constantly post statuses like that are usually attention seekers.

    It's ok. I wasnt meaning that last post in a snarky way. Sometimes typed stuff just come out that way. But I get what you mean to

    I have a few, one who likes to post about 20 statuses a day.

    The ones that annoy me the most are the ones who post "I hate my life" then next status go on about how happy they are?? I do think a lot of it is attention seeking.

    I deleted my facebook Sassymummy you're right, there are so many fake a!ss people on there crying for attention.. anyone can tell the genuine from the look at me types. The ones who sook about silly things and do nothing to change their lives irritate the hell out of me, which is one reason I no longer have a FB.

    I'd post more woe is me statuses, but I've been accused of being an attention seeker (for posting positive stuff though) so I'm conscious of being seen as an attention seeker, or even worse, like my mum. So I kind of bottle it in and keep most of my positive and negative stuff to myself or a select few people. It sucks.

    I don't mind if people do it, but sometimes people do over do it and I think quietly to myself 'then do something about it'..but mostly if I care about the person, I'll try help them - usually by reaching out with a private message or text. (Another reason why I rarely do it, because when I have reached out through a status, it goes unnoticed lol so now I seek out the people I know care (usually DF) and just vent directly to them)
