This Christian ‘table shaker’ had a question for anyone with depression and these 11 replies will make your day better
A chap called Reno Omokri – best-selling conspiracy theorist, ‘major table shaker’ and pastor of something called the Mind of Christ Christian Centre in California, had this question for anyone who thinks they may have depression.
Are you depressed? Ask yourself these questions:
* Do you have a home?
* Do you have food?
* Are you healthy?
* Do you have family?
It people who dont have these can be happy, then what reason do you have to be depressed? You are more blessed than half of humanity #RenosNuggets

Now we’re not here to tell you that ‘Reno’s nugget’ is a load of shit. Oh no, we’ll let these people do that instead, and very satisfying they are too.

You know depression is a medical condition that has nothing to do with whether you've got food or a home and everything to do with chemical imbalances in the brain, right?
It's not just "being sad".
It's a serious condition that won't be fixed by "positive thinking"

Ah yes, because people who are depressed have clearly never considered any of this and don't often feel guilty, confused about and/or ashamed of their mental state already.
This is about one step up from "have you tried thinking happy thoughts?". It's insulting.

Actually, comparing your situation to others' doesn't really help. It makes the depressed person feel even shittier about themselves by showing them something else they feel they're doing wrong. Depression really helps you guilt trip yourself

ask yourself these questions:
* does your brain reuptake serotonin at a normal and consistent rate
* does your hippocampus undergo regular neurogenesis
* are you a stupid motherfucker who pretends to know about any of this while spouting nonsense

Anyone can be depressed, regardless of their personal situation. Depression is an illness that can defy reason.
You are perpetuating ignorant stereotypes about mental health issues you understand nothing about. Your advice sucks. https://t.co/hoCgY3mYwE

If you have depression then you’re not healthy are you, you have an illness. So your questions are invalid. Stop trying to shame & guilt trip people who are trying their best to accept & heal from their very real illness which is NOT MATERIAL-DEPENDENT.

to anyone who has the misfortune to read this tweet: don’t worry! it’s nonsense! you can’t cure depression with gratitude. it’s a mental illness. it ignores circumstance & fact. this guy is a fucking tit. please disregard his words. you’re working hard to be here & that’s enough

Unbelievably, it may not be Reno Omokri’s worst tweet. Here’s one you might have missed.
When men have sex with you,they deposit some of their personality in you through their discharge. Having multiple men discharge into you negatively affects your psyche and personality. God designed women to be recipients of only their husband’s discharge #RenosNuggets
