How Amazon Prime Helps My Depression | + Major Prime Day Deals On NOW

Amazon & Depression:

Amazon is hands-down my favorite place to shop for general items. The service is great, the quality is always good as long as you’re a careful shopper, and it’s an overall good shopping experience. However, Amazon goes a little bit deeper for me.

My depression gets pretty real sometimes, and it manifests itself in many ways. I have an incredibly difficult time getting motivated in the first place, and it’s rather painful for me to actually finish something once it miraculously gets started as well. The two-day Prime shipping has saved this procrastinator’s ass more times than I’d like to mention, so being able to order something basically last minute and have a fairy fly by and drop it at my doorstep is a precious gift for people like me.

Not only that, but the fact that the Magical Amazon Fairy drops said packages off on my doorstep WITHOUT ME SPEAKING TO A SINGLE PERSON damn near brings tears to my eyes. If you have depression or anxiety, you totally understand the fear or dread associated with interacting with other human beings, or worse, strangers. Or just from going out at all.

Being able to order something two days before you need it while drinking wine in your underwear, then seeing it take shape on your doorstep a mere 48 hours later (for free) is a force not to be reckoned with. And in 8,000 cities – you’re eligible for one-day and even SAME-DAY SHIPPING.

So if you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, I highly suggest you form that relationship today to begin indulging in the stupid convenient perks that come with your membership.

Hey! I'm Ophelia. You've just entered a safe space! Here, we talk about depression, sex, and cannabis openly and honestly without judgment. It's time we stop vilifying these natural subjects which have grown to become taboo. When depression is mislabeled as laziness, we encourage suicide. When sex is taught to be shameful, we promote rape culture. And when cannabis is prohibited, ailing people suffer without access, or worse, are jailed.​ I have a Bachelor of Science degree and have spent my adult life researching and experimenting with these topics. I've made it my mission to dispel myths by using science, and to give others hope by sharing my experiences.​ Lives are destroyed or lost when we choose to not talk about the difficult things. But we can do better. Start by Speaking Out on the Unspeakable! @FearlessOphelia
