Idubbz define 'I have crippling depression' meaning and its symptoms with meme & gifs

It is woosh to watch how Idubbz set definition of crippling depression with creativity at its best. It's vine symptom if we are number one but we have crippling depression. [Must Watch Video]

Yeah, I have crippling depression

Most of the times when I curiously surf the internet, I usually login Facebook. At midnight, when I tap my thumb on my smartphone, a bunch of FB feeds switch my face expressions from a curved lip to straight one to mouth wide open to dumb. And soon, the random feelings of anxiety and depression slowly creep into my mind. And then as soon as I realize it, at speed of a blink of eye, I switch to my favorite Youtube channel show - Idubbz

And then I yell as loud as I can

I have crippling depression, woosh you have crippling depression, Admit it, 'we are number one but we have crippling depression

And the show goes on

I enjoy watching crippling depression meme by Idubbz at least once per night. I love exploring other gifs, meme and funny pictures related to it but I have not yet found as entertaining and tantalizing as Idubbz is.

I have been watching this show for longer but understood crippling definition in a better way when I did my research and asked myself following question

What is Crippling Depression

Crippling Depression is a severe case of clinical depression when you are unable to perform basic Activities of Daily Living. (ADL). Crippling depression symptoms are not seen at once rather it is a long and slow process. In this case, you gradually lose your interest, capability and thinking power when you remain depressed for a long time.

Symptoms of Crippling Depression

In my last crippling depression post, I mentioned about the case of Monica Rogers, She revealed following signs of crippling depression

  1. Inability to perform basic personal hygiene
  2. Difficulty in thought processing and making decisions
  3. Appetite and Weight Change
  4. Loss of interest and quick mood swing
  5. Feeling of hopelessness, negativity, and failure
  6. Stroke of stress and anxiety and depression
  7. In worst case - people attempt suicide

How to combat Crippling Depression

While friends can be vital and play an important role in releasing critical depression via Talk Therapy, it is also recommended to get help yourself or help yourself - as we sprymotivators speak aloud - self-help is the best help.

Is it too late to make a U-turn and escape from suicidal thoughts, depression and anxiety?


Suicidal thoughts evolved of depression and anxiety

Suicidal thoughts evolved of depression and anxieties are more prevalent these days than any time in history. We are blindly followed by our thoughts that end up with anxiety and depression.  These thoughts are akin to slope and paths from the treacherous song by Taylor Swift. Here it says, ‘This slope is treacherous, this path is reckless.’ It is interesting to note how it defines love and adversities of a heart. The same applies for our mind also esp. our thoughts – the building blocks of our mind. A mind is the same kind what its constituents are made of. Thus, a mind with suicidal thoughts is a suicidal mind.

How to overcome depression and anxiety

The increase in the number of death owing to suicide caused due to anxiety and depression is increasing like a fire in a jungle. Since a couple of years, it’s been highest ever. People are ending their own life as if they have changed into a Zombie. A Zombie is one that is made when killed by a person infected by the bite of another zombie, which was made from the bite of yet another infected person and so on.

All you need to know about crippling depression

Suicidal thoughts are contagious 

Same is the case with suicidal thoughts. A suicidal thought is Zombie here. A suicidal thought is contagious and when another thought comes in its influence it also gets infected and it continues till all connected thoughts and mind is suicidal. But a question stand tall still is ‘Is it really very hard to make a U-turn and change the direction that leads to suicidal thoughts?”


Normal thoughts infected by negative thoughts become suicidal and dilute other thoughts further.
In the movie, Train to Busan, we see how people change their direction as quickly as they see any Zombie. Thus, we learn that moving into a positive direction is the key to escape a suicide. Only positive attitude and thoughts can help anyone gets rid of negative thoughts and save the ones from a suicide.

But for some, it becomes too late to make a U-turn and escape from suicidal thoughts because they are already bitten by a Zombie and there is 100% possible danger for them to get infected sooner or later. So, they just leave their companions half way and make room for them to escape from themselves else they might harm them.

In most of the suicidal cases, a victim is confused and asks several questions herself and in answers, victim imagines and builds stories with consequences having negative endings and shallow base. At the end, only one question is left in her mind. ‘What her parents, friends or dear one will think of her?’ I’m such a failure as I can’t make my parents happy, I’m a foolish person, my husband cheated on me. Now, who should I live for? He was my life but no more he loves me. Better, I die and so on...

Alas! Most of the time in between the pity thoughts and suicidal action there comes no one to whisper in her ear, “Hey it is just a matter of time. Time changes and heals everything as it passes, It gives a second chance to everyone. It will give a second chance to you. Believe in life. Live, Don’t Die”.

Wish someone could yell loud enough to reach the voice in her ears.

Life gives a second chance to everyone. Just hold on! Live for some more time, sooner or later, you will bounce back and become happy.

But most of the time when they commit suicide there is no one around to speak the healing truth. It is more of care, a precautious initiative by dear one to escape a suicide.

What about our very own negative thoughts that constantly kill our positivity and hope for life?
There is an increase in depression across the world in people of almost of all age group but more prevalent in teenagers and as young as 20-35 years old people.

Depression in itself is a very contemporary topic and its consequences are detrimental. Yet it is shocking we are doing least to combat it.

A poor, lazy lifestyle and absence of a direction or motive in life often give birth to depression. The more you age without expected results the more you tend to get depressed. This is a reason for the increase in suicides in students and it is increasing day by day.

Good Parenting and Counseling can help reduce anxiety depression and suicidal thoughts

Counseling can help reduce anxiety

At teenage, they are not given right guidance and direction is not set. At a sudden when they are asked to do wonder, for which they think they are incapable of, or when they fail to do so, they tend to commit suicide.

Meditation and a genuine prayer help fight anxiety and suicidal thoughts 

Though it is due to extreme pressure, expectation and social criticism but somewhere a poor parenting, lack of raising a child mentally strong, firm and adaptable to any culture and consequences. All this could be attained with proper guidance, caring, and meditation.

Prayers and Vedic rituals have spiritual importance

Meditation, Prayers and Vedic rituals have spiritual importance and measures to combat negative thoughts and depression. One cannot deny it. The need of the hour is to identify the spiritual, psychological, physical and social need of a child and build an all round strong personality which can bear the stroke, pressure, and threat of modern society. This is only possible when parents themselves start practicing and implementing these ideas.

For sure, their world can change. It is time to promise, “I am the world’s first person. So change starts from me. I can change. I will change and then I will make a change.” It’s your turn now. Go make a change.

40+ Depression Quotes about Life evolved out of Negative Vibrations around us


Quotes about depression, pain and loneliness 

I never thought of sharing negativity with my readers. But this is what annoyed me a lot in the last few months. I was depressed and was wondering how to overcome this kind of depression that was always inside my mind. I wanted to get rid of it but it was like oxygen to me. Couldn’t get away from it. Alveoli of my lungs were automatically absorbing enough negativity to get me more depressed. I couldn’t focus on anything. I didn’t blog, didn’t go to see friends. I was just sitting in my chair head down and sleeping. I tried reading some positive inspirational quotes to get some energy but couldn't continue for long. 

As negative vibrations enforced lot of negative thoughts into my mind. I was feeling like I was totally lost. But the good news is that I recovered. And I recovered faster than I thought I could. But before sharing my overcoming depression journey, I’d feel like sharing thoughts in form of quotes that came into my mind when I was totally depressed. Though I have collected these quotes from the web, I’d similar thoughts in my mind. In next post, I will be sharing overcoming depression quotes that you must read and put in place to get rid of depression. It is super easy and fast.

Now, why the hell I’m sharing negative thoughts viz. depression quotes?

Well, I am not sure why I’m doing it. I just know Stars can’t shine without darkness. You must know how ugly you are before you get a bleaching of your face. First, you must admit that you are sick, depressed and broken. Because, the majority of people don’t believe  and admit they are depressed and they don't go for cure method or ways to overcome it and as a result, they break and sometimes quit (suicide).

So just crosscheck if you have similar thoughts that I used to have when I was depressed. If yes, don’t worry next post will help you overcome depression.

Quotes on depression developed from negative instincts 

Depression is living in a body that fights to survive with a mind that tries to die.
Depression is feeling like you’ve lost something but having no clue when or where you last had it. Then one day you realize what you lost is yourself. 
Depression is like a war. You either win or die trying.
Deep inside nothing’s fine I’ve lost my mind. 
Depression is not being able to talk about your problems while taking on everyone else’s just to hide your own. 
What is depression like? It’s like drowning except you can see everyone around you breathing. 
That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything as long as he sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily. That it’s impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key. 
Depression is like a bruise that never goes away. A bruise in your mind. 
In a strange way, I had fallen in love with my depression. 
When you are depressed, try sleeping. Sleep just isn’t sleep anymore, it’s an escape.
At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life. 
You keep it on the inside ‘cause that’s the safest place to hide.
Mom: You never do anything for me.
Me: I fake a smile, I hide my problems from you to avoid you getting stressed, I cover my scars, I don’t talk to you so you don’t have to put up with me, and I pretend to be mentally stable. 
I wish I didn’t exist.
I am done. I’m so f**king done. 
I don’t know if I’m getting better or just used to the pain.
Self harm isn’t just cutting. 
Cutting is not a trend, it’s an addiction.
It’s like screaming but no one can hear.
It is an everyday battle.
If this is how my life is going to be, I don’t want it anymore.
Don’t cry in front of them, please just fight back the tears. Please just don’t let the, see me cry.
Why did you try to kill yourself?
You told me to be happy. 
That feeling of calm that you get after you self-harm…
It’s like being high. Everything is okay in the world for a minute. And for that night you can sleep calmly.
Weird how something so evil can feel so good 
When I’m broken, useless, alone, clueless, confused, betrayed, fragile, on the verge of tears, depressed, anxious, about to break down, pathetic, annoyed, lonely, rejected, crushed, I feel like I’m going to just fall apart at any moment, empty, defeated, never good enough and then someone suddenly asks me, “How are you?” I just say – Fine. 
It hurts, but it’s ok.. I’m used to it. 
Look at your cuts.
Or your burns.
Or those bruises you gave yourself.
Each one, is a battle with yourself
That you lost.
Sometimes when I say “I’m okay”, I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight, and say, “I know you’re not”.
I hate getting flashbacks from things I don’t want to remember. 
That awkward moment when you think you’re important to someone, and you’re not.
Yeah she is smiling. But don’t let that fool you. Look to her eyes, She’s breaking inside. 
No amount of sleep in the world cure the tiredness I feel. 
I need a break from the loneliness that is totally consuming me.
My silence is just another word for my pain.
If you could read my mind you’d be in tears. 
Sometimes the person who tries to keep everyone happy is the most the lonely person.
The worst feeling isn’t being lonely but being forgotten by someone you can’t forget. 
I’m busy saving everybody else when I can’t even save myself. 
I don’t think how people understand how stressful it is to explain what’s going on in your head when you don’t even understand it yourself. 
You don’t know why you’re exhausted? You’re fighting a war inside your head every single day. If that’s not exhausting I don’t know what is.
My life is just one constant battle between wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. 
I get lost inside my mind, 
Every thought is a battle, every breath is a war, and I don’t think I’m winning anymore. 
I feel like I bother people just by being alive. 
I’m so ashamed of myself all the time. I just feel like I’m worthless and replaceable. 
There’s nothing more depressing than having it all and still feeling sad. 
People who want to die by suicide don’t want to end their lives, they want to end their pain. 
Hope, now you can figure out and diagnose yourself with depression if you are having similar thoughts about your life like I had before I healed myself to overcome depression. Now in next post get ready to go through a systematic process of controlling our mind. At this stage, only you can help yourself as it is well said that self-help is the best help.

Loosen all your depressive thoughts and fall into a prodigy of calmness. Release all your day long stress and laugh out laughter (LOL). Remember, there is nothing in this world that can stop you from being happy.

If the burden of thoughts and sorrow prevails in your mind, all day long and all day night. Then, it doesn't mean there is a fault in your mind. It doesn't mean you can't rectify your chores, as the fault is not in your mind but in chores. These chores are your thoughts. Thus, the fault is in your thoughts...


Let the self-healing go at its own pace. Meanwhile, you should not miss a moment to smile, laugh, and go hilariously towards your goal. And your goal it to be happy.

With a hope to bring a smile on your face, I am here with a few crippling depression memes.

All you need to know to fight crippling depression


As per Urban Dictionary, the top definition of crippling depression is “Severe depression that takes over your whole life making unbearable to carry out basic daily tasks. That means Crippling Depression is the worst stage of depression. Only the saddest people have this sickness.

Crippling Depression is a severe case when you are unable to perform basic Activities of Daily Living. (ADL). Crippling depression symptoms are not seen at once rather it is a long and slow process. In this case, you gradually lose your interest, capability and thinking power when you remain depressed for a long time.

Monica Rogers, who dealt with depression for nearly 20 years shared how she experienced when her depression was at the peak.

She couldn’t make her get out of bed, perform basic personal hygiene, she couldn’t think and make decisions because of it, she even lost her job. Feeling of hopelessness, negativity and failure always dominated her mind. She was in such an adverse mental pain that she even attempted suicide as she thought things were never going to be right. Everything seemed impossible, a stroke of stress and anxiety was common every day, and worst happened when she isolated herself from everyone and everything.
According to Monica, if you wish to help your depressed friend, the best you can do is listen to him/her.

I have crippling depression and how can I combat it?

If you think you are suffering from crippling depression, you have already started your fight against depression. Yes, knowing and accepting depression is an important and crucial part in combating depression. As many people don’t accept the truth easily that they are depressed or suffering from a mental illness. Depression is a real mental illness of serious mood disorder.

Here are some signs and symptoms of depression

If you find you are experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms for at least 14 days, there are chances you are suffering from depression.

1. Feeling of sadness, anxiety and hollow mood consistently
2. Hopelessness, negativity and failure thoughts

4. Decreased energy, fatigue, and slowness
5. Loss of interest and quick mood swing

These are some very common signs and symptoms of depression that can help you in the self-diagnosis of depression. If you find yourself diagnosed with depression, there is no need to panic. Depression is just an illness and like any illness it does has a cure. But what is most required from a depressed person is first to embrace a positive attitude towards self and life. Embracing positivity is an essential and most required ingredient of all medicines that you need to take during medication of depression. If you have a positive attitude then the half of the treatment is already done, now half will be done with the help of friend, doctor, and therapy.

Friends can act as a first aid in curing a friend’s depression if they have a good listening skill. All that they have to do is to hear a depressed friend as much as possible. Friends provide an emotional support and stand by him to give strength to stay strong in a fight against depression. As per National Institute of Mental Health, it is also called ‘Talk Therapy’ or Psychotherapy which can be further divided into three types.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – It helps in changing negative thinking. It is thought oriented.

Interpersonal Therapy – It helps in changing behaviors. It is action oriented.

Problem Solving Therapy – It helps in overcoming stressful life experiences of life involving stress, mood swings and anxiety. It is both thought and action oriented.

If you or your friend experiences such thoughts and has attempted suicide even for once, then it would be perfect to visit Suicide Prevention Lifeline for help.

It is always good to check with your doctor before taking any medical advice that you hear from your dear one.

11-inspirational books-for-depression-and-low-self-esteem

 A question would come into your mind…

Why do you read inspirational books? 

I have few words…

As we know, everyone has their own particular issues, may it be little or huge and we generally figure out how to manage it. There are individuals who have encountered so much torment and hurdles in their lives and they feel that they are never going to receive in return. Be that as it may, despite everything they battle and in the end wind up succeeding and for a few, losing.

Regardless of the possibility that we don't have enormous issues or genuine ailment to manage, we gain from their story. There are helpful books that discuss individuals who have exceeded expectations in their life and now live a decent life.

We try to resemble them because these sorts of stories guaranteed us that in the event that they can succeed, we as a whole can as well. Some of the time we simply need confirmation and proof before we trust that the incomprehensible can truly be conceivable.

Books do truly show us incredible lessons and prove to us that in each battle there is trust and in each issue, there is an answer. We are altogether associated with each other might be not by blood but rather through our stories.

If you are feeling if you’re feeling unmotivated, lethargic, depressed or low self-esteem. These books can help you feel confident and inspired.

  2. Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive
  3. Felicia Day’s You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)
  4. Jennifer Niven’s All the Bright Places
  5. Cristina Henríquez’s The Book of Unknown Americans
  6. Terry Tempest Williams’ When Women Were Birds

Quotes about overcoming depression and anxiety to cheer up a depressed friend


Inspirational and motivational quotes for depression sufferers 

I had no clue how depression can haunt someone until it haunted me for nearly two months. As a sufferer, I was deeply sad and most of the time remained lost somewhere in my own thoughts which were insidious in nature. I completely lost my interest in things which I liked the most, was unable to concentrate on tasks, spent sleepless nights and attained weak emotional and physical condition as my eating habit and appetite changed. Moreover, my thoughts about depression were strong enough to harm me by forcing me to quit. BUT, I didn't quit and now I am back with immense energy. Now, I feel I have enough energy to spread vitality and happiness among all who actually need it. 

I am sure that anyone who is depressed can overcome his depression if he is motivated from within and is really longing to overcome depression. But most of the time, when he is in depression positive, motivational and inspirational thoughts seldom come in his mind. At this juncture, a close friend or family member can help him in end number of ways, one of which can be to read a depressed friend motivational and inspirational quotes to overcome depression and anxiety.  

Quotes for depressed friends to cheer up 

Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway 
It’s perfectly okay to admit you’re not okay
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny
Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all battles you have won, and the fears you have overcome
Do not believe the things you tell yourself when you are sad and alone.
It’s me who is enemy,
Me who beats me up,
Me who makes the monsters,
Me who strips my confidence.
The bravest thing
I ever did was
Continuing my life
When I wanted to die.
When something bad happens
You have three choices
You can let it either define you
Let it destroy you, or you
Can let it strengthen you
Stars can’t shine without darkness 
Be gentle with yourself,
You are doing the best you can
Take a shower, wash off the day.
Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark.
Lie down and close your eyes.
Notice the silence. Notice your heart.
Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all.
You made it another day. And you can make it one more.
You’re doing just fine. 
You are Okay.
You will get better.
You feel like
yourself again
You may not believe that’s possible now;
Cling it to anyway. 
Music makes the pain fade. Listen to it now 
I have depression.
But I prefer to say I “battle” depression instead of
“I suffer” with it.
Because, depression hits but I hit back.
Battle on.
Because I know what it feels like
To beg god to just take it all away
Don't you know why you are exhausted?
You’re a fighting a war inside your head every single day.
If that’s not exhausting I don’t know what is. 
Pain changes people,
 it makes them trust less,
overthink more,
and shut people out.
It’s all about finding the calm in the chaos 
To that one soul reading this,
I know you’re tired.
You’re fed up.
You’re so close to breaking but theirs is strength within you
Even when you feel weak
Keep fighting
Even the darkest night
will end
and the sun will rise
The worst part
About being sad
Is that
You don’t even know
What makes you happy
Believe in yourself and all that you are.
Know that there is
Something inside you
That is greater than an obstacle.
I had to fight like hell
And fighting like hell had made me
What I am 
Just because you took longer than others
Doesn’t mean you failed
Remember that.
Do not give your past
The power to define your future
I’ve endured this discomfort before and survived it,
And so I can survive it today.
I’ve felt these feelings before and sat with them,
And so I can sit with them today.
I’ve felt like giving in before and held onto hope,
 And so I can continue to hold on today.
I made it through yesterday, and so,
I can also make it through today.
I can do it.
I will do it.
I am doing it.
I am strong and I am capable. I will not give up.
I refuse to sink
Just because you think you’re worthless
Doesn’t make it true.
Imagine if we obsessed about the things we loved
About ourselves
The biggest fear is that eventually, you will see me the way I see myself. 
Mental illness is not a choice but recovery is.
Do not confuse my bad days a sign of weakness. Those are actually the days I’m fighting my hardest.
Broken minds can be healed just like the way broken bones and broken hearts are healed.
While God is at work making those repairs, the rest of us can help by being merciful, nonjudgmental, and kind.
Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.
I will breathe.
I will think of solutions.
I will not let
My worry control me.
I will not let my
Stress level break me.
I will simply breathe.
And it will be okay.
Because I don’t quit.
Recovery: It will be challenging.
It will also be worth it.
You will relapse, and that’s ok,
As long as you keep fighting.
Depression, anxiety and panic attacks
Are not a sign of weakness.
They are signs of trying to remain strong for far too long.
And in great decay
Comes great renewal.
Life finds a way out of the darkest spots.
Breathe the air and remind yourself that your heart
Beats hard to keep you alive.
It doesn’t have to take over your life,
It doesn’t have to define you as a person,
It’s just important that you ask for help.
It’s not a sign of weakness.
Before you can see the light, you have to deal with the darkness.
The darkest hour is just before the dawn
