Stay Positive: Fixing the Boy Who Couldn’t Be Fixed, Week 0 – by Ted Pettingell

Hi there, thanks for reading this. Are you ready to laugh? I hope so because I’ve decided to write a comedy article about depression. 


…My depression to be more specific.  But if you want to talk about yours, thats cool too.  Let’s just not do it here.  Anyway, maybe you know me, or maybe you don’t, or maybe you only know me from my other hilarious articles on this site.  You know the ones I’m talking about, the ones where I expose Shawn Carter and Rich Karski as the intellectual frauds that they are.  Lets get passed that negativity. This article is all about positivity.


If you are familiar with me at all you have probably thought to yourself… ‘That Ted Pettingell sure is an odd fellow, I wonder what his deal is?’  Or… ‘That Ted Pettingell sure is a dick, I wonder what his deal is besides being a huge dick.’  Well, I’m here to tell you what my deal is. I am sad, almost all the time.


I’m sure some of you just said out loud, “Well, obviously.”  And yeah, obviously.  Over the past 10 years lots of people have tried to get me to see a doctor or seek some sort of counseling, and as of a week ago, your decade of nagging has finally paid off.  Last week I went to see a doctor about all the feelings I have all the time.  I was given a diagnosis of depression and generalized anxiety disorder… or something similar, I don’t know I wasn’t really paying attention.  It’s not as cool as the diagnosis I was hoping for, which was “mad hatter.”
