I survived... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/4/09
For anyone who is suffering, I want to tell my story, and if just one person can relate, and survives and makes it through to the other side even partly because of my words then at least some good will have come from the hell I went through:
I suffered from psychotic depression for 12 years. Turns out it wasn't a chemical disorder, but a form of epilepsy that only affects the emotional center of the brain. No seizures but I'd snap into very severe depression episodes with no warning for no reason. It was to the point where I would actually stop in the middle of having sex with my girlfriend or be out in public and go into crying fits. On top of just raw emotional pain, for me as a man it was embarrassing and demoralizing. I also saw things that weren't there, although I never told anyone of course.
I lived in this personal hell all through my teens and 20s. Even though I was popular, had lots of friends, pretty girls wanting to have sex with me (and having their wishes granted on a regular basis), I even had an expensive sports car and yet I had thoughts of suicide constantly. If it weren't for my mental disorder I had what one could describe as a charmed life. But the emotional pain was so bad I would cut myself and constantly put myself in life threatening situations. I survived 6 terrible car wrecks, a couple of which almost nobody survives, and certainly don't walk away from basicaly unscathed. There were 3 times different people pulled a gun on me and I dared them to pull the trigger. I truly had no fear of death whatsoever, because it would have been better than what I was going through. Of course, this made me look real cool to other people, but it had nothing to do with wanting to be cool. The ugly truth was I wanted to die but didn't have the guts to do it myself.
I tried and tried to find a doctor that could help me. None of the medications worked, and because all the doctors were really nothing more than legal drug dealers, they had no solutions except to shove more dope in my face - I would have been better off smoking pot!
In the end, though, I survived. A very smart doctor took a risk on a hunch and prescribed me epilepsy medication, which made no sense to me, but at that point I was out of options and had nothing to lose. In less than a month I was completely cured, and the suicidal thoughts and crying fits and everything else have never returned.
Life on the other side isn't perfect of course, but running with my dog, having long conversations with my friends, eating a big juicy steak - I enjoy what life has to offer, even if it isn't offering everything I want. I don't think that makes me a "happy" person, but I'm sure as hell not miserable, and it certainly isn't because things are going well (they're not). But who the hell cares so long as I have food, shelter, and freedom? And now that I can actually enjoy being loved my relationships are really satisfying.
So take what you want from my story - I hope it helps someone, especially anyone considering suicide. If you believe nothing else anyone ever tells you take it from someone who at one time had a death wish and was literally psychotic: things WILL get better. You'll find another girl (or guy). You'll make more friends. You'll have plenty of good times. The worst mistake someone can make is to make a permanent decision based on a temporary problem.
And BTW Dave and MIke: ED isn't a person it's an Eating Disorder. My brother's wife had an ED and she got through it mainly because she was lucky enough to find one of the most caring people I've ever known for her husband. Though you can't solve your inner problems with material things, walking a spiritual path to a better inner self is done much more easily with another person. If I were to be asked for a solution (which I wasn't), I would say that finding someone who believes in your religion (or any spiritual connection) and basing your relationship on that vs. sex, good looks, money or popularity will lead you out of the darkness. At least, that's what I've seen happen many times, so I know it can happen.
Just survive. That's all you need to do. Whatever you have to tell yourself - just survive. Speaking for myself, I'm very glad I did.

love this song, very inspirational, gets you into a certain mood that just makes you think about all things in your life, including past, present and future,has a certain non conforming tone to it that most music seems to be missing.
once again love it.
Go f*^k yourself | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/13/09
adan, depression isn't something to be scorned. The artist wrote the song for others to relate their own meaning to as well. And when I listened to this song, I cried , and I'm not embarrassed to admit it. And maybe I have a goddam reason to. How does that give you the right to spit in my face? As far as the song meaning, it is now my favorite song. To me it has to do with the ones I've loved. Theyre perfect, and everything that I want. But when I look back to the mirror, all I see is this person who will never really feel like he's loved. Who would do anything to be perfect. A perfectionist who can barely achieve good. How am I here?I don't belong here. I think here means the world. I think I don't belong here means suicide. Which is what I'm currently trying to avoid. And for those of you who said just ignore it...believe me. I would if I could.
hope can be found in the notes... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/09
This song is inspirational and to take the song to heart is a good thing if you can connect to it, in my opinion. Not everyone goes thru life feeling like the odd man out, but for those who do, it's nice to know there are others who understand just how you feel, and to have music that can serve as a kinda soundtrack to help you thru a shitty part of life can be beautiful! it can be just the boost someone needs to get by :) for the people who like to make ppl feel like crap 'cause they identify with music, don't judge people, understand them. we're in this thing together.
Radio on RadioHead | Reviewer: BumbleBee | 2/8/09
i heard this song was so sad that they couldn't play it on the radio. So i went to check it out and it's not that bad. i admit, it's pretty sad but i have heard and felt worse.
music is supposed to be something that others express that you relate to and find your strength because you realize that you are not alone.
always remember that your life isn't over if someone dumps you. yuor life is over when you die idiots.
shit happens so pick it up and flush it down the toilet then wash your hands and get out the damn bathroom.

Build a home with your own hands. Channel your feelings into something physical. Build a hotrod, join a club. Get it done, take your time and do it right. Become debt free and live like a king or queen. Your children are a reflection of yourself, take em to Disney World, be their best friend. You can do it, just takes hard work:) Cheers, Kevin
reflection of the inner beauty | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/31/09
Dear anonymous. You've obviously been very hurt by this ED, breaking up with someone you love can always destroy your confidence. I want you to know that you are not a creep, as every person in this world is a reflection of the inner beauty which flourishes within human kind. Sincerely, Dave and Mike xxxxx
i think you should do something terrible to ed
... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/22/09
love this song. for me it puts to words and music all my insecurities, all my nights crying because i wasn't as pretty, as funny, as vivacious, as wonderful as others. It's all those parties where i felt like the dark horse - I didn't quite feel i belonged with this charming, laughing group of people. It's my song about my ED I suppose. Just wishing that I was perfect - [I don't care if it hurts, I want to have control; I want a perfect body, i want a perfect soul]. Because then i'd be good enough. Then I wouldn't be a creep..
To Adrian Ryan | Reviewer: DjStonedSmur | 1/27/09
This song was written for those kids,who had tough time growing up, they all had something they could relate with, Music is all about expression, its not about personal problems, its about sharing and connecting with ONE another, PLUS RadioHead has more inteligence that you will ever have in 5 life times, so Keep YOUR personal OPINIONS to yourself
To Adan | Reviewer: craig | 1/22/09
Adan, I couple of years ago I was heavily into Gange us, an ounce every couple of days to myself. I was working night shift. Was living alone. For a year I had no social life, I was on a steady decline into manic deprssion and had built up a wall around me so even to family I didn't call for help. I found Pink Floyds 'the Wall'. It perfectly exemplified my situation and touched me like no album had done before. Everything from Pinks youth to adulthood was mine too. I shared many moments with tears over that album. I know that I could never write like that, not talented enough, and frankly I wouldn't want to try. To me, that album is perfect. Obviously the people here are feeling the same and you have no right to down play another persons emotions or feelings towards a piece of music that they have connected to. Music (proper music) is emotive in its nature, and at least these people have found a way to release their pain through constructive needs rather than be a miserable ass like yourself who puts others down because He 'hurt his boo' and can't handle it. Creep is a beautiful song, beauty is art, art is a gift from the imagination, to the artist, to the public.
please let me help you all | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/24/09
stop trying to find SO much meaning in songs... radiohead wrote this to play the devils advocate and try to have an effect on people --as well as a lot of other bands, i might add--
reading what you guys have been writing, you guys really need to realize that love is not that fucking great. it actually sucks, believe it or not. as good as it makes you feel. it can make you worse.
you think your crush/boyfriend/girlfriend is like the best thing you've ever had/seen. chances are, they're not .. there's definately better stuff out there ..
love makes you think like a retard
.. it's true
so please.. stop all the talk of how you have such low self esteems and are bad people for what you've done or said or for what they did to you .. whatever ... you're not. you're one of us, you're human.
you're all better than you think you are (trust me)
my advice ..
if you're going through hell, keep going lol..
.. especially in high school.. i mean we all get what you're going through or what he/she has done or has said to you (and it must suck, i might add).
there are so many who have been thorugh similar situations .. more often than not they dont end up harming/killing themselves or doing dumb things.. they look back from their much better lives SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW (trust me)
thinking thank God i got through THAT.....
i just like the song | Reviewer: elle | 1/24/09
wow. . . you guys really treat this song seriously. i just like the tune and the fact it's a wee bit dark. great album. stop whispering is awsum 2. so for all those peeps who take this song so friggin seriously. . . lighten up and you'll find life goes a lot smoother. it is that easy. if you disagree maybe you should see a professional. long live radiohead!
Cmon Guys! | Reviewer: Bob Latharge | 1/28/09
Alright, poeple go through tough times...everybody does. Why do you guys stay on the same problem, move on. Do something else. Forget about what happened before. You guys are all staying with same problem and that shits just gonna build up...like bob the builder. So just move on, or atleast keep it to yourself.
creeps | Reviewer: adan ryan | 1/20/09
what the fuck is wrong with these gueys? creep wasn´t written for you, or me or anybody but that guy in radiohead. write your own goddamn song, and get in control of your fuckin life! so you hurt your boo? you think youre the only one? evryone feels pain, everyone feels doubt, and everyone has to deal with it. move on to something or some one else, and use your past experience to do better next time. and shut the fuck up, babies! -truly yours, adan
