  3. This generation is weak. Imagine grandpa crying about having to fight in WW2. 😉

  4. Just keep printing money and give them money that will help everybody, oh yeah and make them take your Guinea pig on tested vaccine for the 99% survival rate common cold virus that you pull the scam out

  5. My high school son go from almost all A's to D and F's. He's depresse, so do my husband and I.

  6. Covid Fatality Rate: .4%
    People considering suicide: 13%

    Tell me what's a worse problem?

  7. We introverts love solitude. Not loneliness, but solitude.

  8. I started self-medicating on my dad's anti-depressants 5 months ago and they work very well. Feel 80% better. Minimal side effects and take 2 weeks to start working.

  9. When your response to the vaccine causes more suicides than the virus actually kills… GOOD JOB LEFTY PSYCHOS

  10. Of course to muzzled
    Like a wild dog…

  11. God I hate this generation

  12. Join The Crowd = It's Called Life

  13. Hey kids don't get duped. Don't be stupid.

  14. Suicidal because of class and life changes and challenges due to quarantine and pandemic issues….waitel you get into the REAL WORLD!!!…lol. That's just a freakin sample!😊

  15. 本人来自广东广州,最初从一名无脑的爱国小粉红变成一个醒觉者。由武汉肺炎到陈秋实等公民记者被消失,维吾尔族灭族,香港逃犯条例到国安法……大陆当权的种种恶行令人发指,罄竹难书!大陆的人活得卑微,却自以为是的民族情怀,从小就被爱国主义教育洗脑,忠党爱国。简言之,你要先忠党后爱国。没有共产党就没有新中国。可笑了,一个党竟然比国家还重要😂?共产党危害所有民主国家,令人担忧之余亦想过可以改变,无奈强权只手遮天,一党专政,希望有生之年能够移民民主国家,脱离极权。也希望台湾不要被大陆统一,衷心感谢🙏最后用母语发表一下:共产党我叼你老母閪,迟早被美国收皮,大陆咩也都含税,假货满天飞,水深火热。税收的钱又无用于民,揾笨七嘅。无免费医疗,无言论自由,无新闻自由,郁d就删帖封号🙄。话你危害祖国统一,讲两句就危害国家安全。官二代星二代红二代全部拿外国护照,一边讲爱国一边移民,又一边赚大陆的钱。好多香港艺人为左奶共捞金可以割席民主,刘德华上春晚,黄子华被禁止讲政治,陈奕迅拒绝为Nike 代言。平民活得卑微之余更唔洗讲养老,老人家自求多福,生育,国家提倡你生,但系你要自己养,方便共产党割韭菜,教育就永远学唔到日本啦,讲多都晒气。共产党早d扑街就系啦

  16. The US has become the epicenter of the "snowflake culture."

  17. Imagine if health class actually taught students about mental health awareness & suicide prevention throughout middle school & high school…

  18. Regarding Mark Anarumo. What is it he won't do again? Move in with them for a week? What was so unhealthy and unfair to those young men and women? I'm confused. Something skipped a track here.

  19. If Col Anarumo doesn't follow CDC guidelines, he should be given a dishonorable discharge.

  20. I never had many friends growing up, so it was weird to me seeing people losing their minds because they couldn't see friends in person.

  21. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww……poor thing.

  22. Yes this pandemic made me develop insomnia

  23. Welcome to the world of those of us who were sexually molested in early childhood. I have spent almost my entire 52 years on this Earth feeling like this. In school, because I was severely depressed and socially anxious from being molested, I was bullied and socially rejected by both my peers and teachers. I hope some of them develop empathy for peers they would normally treat like excrememt themselves. Those students who are withdrawn and anxious normally. They are most likely victims of childhood sexual abuse.

    Psychological research has shown that victims of childhood sexual abuse are socially rejected throughout their lives as a result of their depression and anxiety. Teachers, including mine, openly shun them and bully them, which encourages peer rejection and bullying; and when we survive to adulthood without committing suicide, no-one wants to employ us. Our life of suffering is initiated by the paedophile and sustained by everyone around us. The only reason I didn't follow through on suicide plans was my love for my mother and desire not to cause her suffering. She had been psychologically abused by my grandmother who was a psycho, so I didn't want to cause her any more suffering. I cared for her in her last years and planned to leave with her. Unfortunately, cats came along and now I can't leave till they're lives run out. Ie my cats are the only thing I'm living for.

  24. Are universities still providing mental health services?

  25. Your not 6 feet apart guys
    You're breaking the law

  26. I'm glad she's doing better, and I wish everyone well always, especially during these difficult times. I am not sure why it is more challenging for most students, than anyone else, though. Weren't they supposed to be studying and reading, instead of partying? And what about all the responsibilities of adults, like feeding kids, trying to keep them safe, and figure out how to pay the bills. What about people with actual jobs that disappeared? And seniors living alone without families? Most college kids can just stay home and depend on mom and dad to feed and house them. I know college hasn't turned out how most of them have hoped, but if they stayed home, and wear masks, they will probably have many more years to enjoy, post-pandemic.

  27. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  28. I mean, covid or not, college classes are hard and there’s no help for students. They’re using the pandemic as an excuse but feeling isolated was a pandemic before covid and no one cared.

  29. Another case . Seafarers stranded on board ship mostly from India and Pakistan .Living in harsh conditions . Ship abandoned by shipowner . Ship is at anchor bandar Abbas port Iran .
    Please help these stranded Seafares . Show their video too

  30. It’s sad, but it’s happening in kids much younger

  31. I do truly feel for her because nobody should have to suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts. It's not like when I was in college taking courses from places like the University of Arizona and the University of Maryland for as little as $20 and even taking college level courses for free with transferable credits and going around the country and even halfway through Europe. Even got paid to take some courses but then again my college was through community college of the Air Force.
