platano chips : PLEASE tell me other people noticed that the acrnonym for Seasonal Affective Disorder is S.A.D. Seriously, anyone else??

_BlazeBoi_ : Fall and Winter usually make me happier than I am when Spring or Summer roles around. Guess I'm just backwards?


ObscureGem : Seasonal Affective Disorder S A D Sad.

Manish : Life noggin Could you please make a video about 'what is sucess?'.

Juno Dovah : 1 2 Melatonin is coming for you

Kain Masters : God damn... I always knew I had depression, but I had no idea it was responsible for stuff like me getting sick more often. I just kinda always assumed that was unrelated.

Meg G : Seasonal affective disorder is SAD Ironic

Blaise Pascal : If you're reading this, I hope you have a good day :)

devluz : The video mixes up "depression" meaning bad mood and the mood disorder "depression" :/ Being sad because a loved one dies is normal thing. Being sad all the time without reason is a completely different story :/ Then you may need a doctor. Wished the video would make the difference more clear.

Czara Corsame : I bet my parents dont know this about me. ๐Ÿ˜”

Brittany Taylor : My best friends are the only things that keep me sane I swear. I have so much fun at school, but as soon as I come home it's like a switch flips. It's been like that ever since my grandma (who I dislike) started living with us because she drives us all crazy. Oh well, I love my friends so much they might as well be my family <3 xx

lia ana : I have depression and just seeing the title of this video made me very depressed because it reminds me that I have it. I absolutely LOVE your videos and I have learned to let depression talk, before I freak out. Part of having depression is finding out ways to be the bigger person. It took me 3 years to find out that being different is a blessing. People who have depression are always judged right away and treated way different. Every single person on this planet earth has depression. But the people who don't seek help soon, are the ones who suffer more and get to think that depression are friends. Take it from me, I waited 3 years like I said, to tell someone. I promise, someone will understand. You know what? I thought no one would understand, but I told my father. I learned that he has depression too. Guess what? My mom has it as well. We worked together as a team to stay happy and be alive and live life to the fullest because we know we are worth it. You are worth it. We are all worth it. I still have depression, sometimes I consider therapy. But, I don't go to therapy because I know that I can solve it with the people I love most. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Pat Uszodi : The whole time, I didn't see smiles/frowns. I saw a face and an upside down face... ย  ._. ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย .-.

Bertrand Barraud : What makes me happy, seeing that smart videos on youtube exist ! Thank you life Noggin !

demofa โ€™ demofa : Hey can you make an episode about weed ,??

rwko : I understand the 'think positive' thing but as a depressed person the things that used to make me happy don't always do the thing. it feels as if I'm unable to get positive feelings from positive thoughts but then the littlest negative thing brings me down instantly

Cyrekt : Someone asked me when I was depressed for a bit 'why can you think positively and happy?' My problem at the time is that I forgot how to

Aero Novara : It's terrible that these days, there are more and more people getting depression. That in turn has made a lot of people take it less seriously because of how common it's getting. Shouldn't it be the other way around? Granted a lot of other people take it more seriously as the number of depressed people continues to rise. I can't help but think that as the number grows, the less people care overall. I'm not saying "no one cares" just because I have depression myself, as well as anxiety, I'm just saying to those who DO say such abhorrent things (That DON'T have depression, mind you) that... depression is much more serious than you think. I was diagnosed with it at a very young age and have been fighting it damn near half my life now, and it's exhausting. Mental illnesses are arguably the most difficult type of illness that anyone can fight or heal. A broken arm is easier to mend than a broken heart. It makes sense to me, but I always wondered why. I'm no psychologist, so I wouldn't know. I just wish more people took this problem seriously rather than jumping the gun and calling someone an "emo faggotty loser". They might just have a serious problem with depression and you're just making it worse. Truly the genuine abominations of this planet... are people that do just that. Sure. It may be a phase for some. But what if it's not? What if what you said so callously has led to their suicide? Could you live with that on your conscious? If so, then us depressed people are not the only ones that need to seek mental help.

Mads Nielsen : Helping people ! It's like, when people say "thank you". I'm like NO THANK YOU! :) It gives me drive and makes me happy, awesome video! :)

Serria Yisasia : You know what else is common with depression? How common it actually seems to be used as a diagnosis by careless doctors.

chloe the ghost girl : I love to draw!when I get older I want to become a comic book artist!

LosNoblesVlogs : Penny boarding males me happy; althoug kissing and tacos

kujmous : Depression Trigger Words: always, never, forever, everybody, nobody, just, should. Such as: I've always been left out. I'll never get better. I'm stuck like this forever. Everybody thinks I'm poison. Nobody cares. I'm just sad. I should get over it. Train yourself to hear these words both in yourself and others. This is what depression sounds like in and out of your head.

EnderFaith : a way to make urself happy is to think of the happy times, eat food, exercise, etc. see life noggin's science of happiness :D

Call Me Mirko : I know that you don't care, but I just miss a game winning shot(basketball), FUUUUUCKKCKKCKCK๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I love Chickens : I'm the opposite and like it when it's darker except when I wake up and realize it's after12

H.L. Sims : Y'ALL I remember that when I was depressed everything around me looked dark and dull and bleak. I only noticed how beautiful the world actually is once I got better. Things appeared brighter and sharper. I figured it was just because my mood was affecting how my brain perceived things. I had no idea that depression literally affected your eyesight.

Chili Dog : I react well to seasonal changes, I love snow (And in summer I'm always Cold)

Stephanie France : I like to read because it takes me away from the outside world

Cosmic Potato : Every single of these things fit me That makes me sad

Wata Melon : My bugaboo makes me happy...........rightttttt Alex?

Bathna33 : What music did they used for the background??

BlowinUPinMIA : I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold, hey I'll be fine once I get it, yeah I'll be good.

Requ1escat1nPACE : You guys just earned a subscriber who will regularly view and thumbs up your videos. Good stuff.

Ikritpup : I lost trust and faith in doctors after medication side effects screwed me over and made my condition worst.

VRH : Depression has levels of intensity and at whichever level, the experience induces burdens and struggles and it should not be taken lightly. Some may not or not be willing to understand the experience but Its real.

ร˜uter : O wow... I never thought that less or more light is why I more happy in spring or summer then I am in winter or fall, hey, we learn something new everyday

onesquishyfish : "Talk to a doctor if you're depressed." Bruh. My parents would kill me if I tried this.
