help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful
DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL
yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”
LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant?? Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO. They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL. They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.
Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse. The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!! Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest. Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed. They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.
It’s back and adorable
Here’s a sweet little siphonophore bobbing around in the deep sea!
Siphonophores are members of the phylum Cnidaria, like jellyfish, sea anemones and corals.
They’re colonial animals. What you see here is not one, single individual, but an entire army of sea anemones and jellyfish all stuck together.
The sea anemones (or polyps) are at the bottom and use their stinging tentacles to catch food.
The jellyfish (or medusae) are at the top, where they pulse and beat away so that the whole gang can get around.
The Golden Horde is back! And this time they’re kinda cute.

All those sci-fi movies where there’s a creature made up of a swarm of tiny littler creatures? That is you. That is literally what you are. You are a colony of cells.
