Get up and move on by humon Get up and move on by humon

My site humoncomics.com/

And illustrated version of the song "Rejs dig op og kom videre" (Get up and move on) by Danser Med Drenge (Dancing with boys)

I like how they have songs for every level of problems. From the minor stuff like this one, missing family members you have lost contact with like "Kære lille søster" (Dear little sister), to the loss of loved ones like the song "Er der nogen i himlsen" (Is there anyone in Heaven), and songs for when the terrible things have happened and you come out on the other side like "En dejlig morgen" (A wonderful morning)

You can hear a live version of this song here www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6hlvW… (It's in Danish)

EDIT: Because this is turning into a thing: This has nothing to do with mental illness. It might not translate well to English, but it's very clear in the Danish version that it's just about a person with bad luck who doesn't understand why life won't give them a break (things like a car braking down, or losing your wallet) and get so caught up in how unfair their life is that they forget to see the bigger picture.

You can say all you want it has nothing to do with mental illness, but the fact still remains that this is the same horribly cruel, insensitive diatribe that people with conditions like depression hear ALL THE TIME.

You're depressed? Oh, wah wah wah, just smile and try harder to be happy! Do something for someone else, get out there and do something fun and you'll be "all better"! Except we're not.

Things like this? They make us feel WORSE. They make up GIVE UP FASTER because they make us feel like people don't understand and don't care.

This is not beautiful. This is a horrific nightmare of lousy therapists and assholes who you thought were your friends.

I, as a longstanding sufferer of serious depression, agree.

I've been struggling with depressing for 16 years. That's more than half of my life. I've gone through times when I've been "better" and I've gone through times when I was "worse", but there has never been a time without depression looming. Even with medication.

I was subjected to the "If you just change your diet, you'll feel better" argument today.

I love how the general God-character is completely different from the actual God depicted in the bible :P

The depiction of God reminds me of an old guy I see on campus all the time. All he needs are some glasses and he's set.
