If there’s anything that brings the internet together, its the combination of food and misery. Twitter user Donella (@dizzysinclair) recently struck a chord when she tweeted asking people to share their shittiest depression meals.

Something about this request really appealed to people, so much so that replies are still coming in days and many thousand retweets later.

There are some non-food entries.

With sleep as a common one.

While some users are confused by the fact that other people actually manage to eat at all when depressed.

Some were honestly pretty ingenious, maybe more of a struggle meal than a depression one.

While others were just gross.

Some of it is worryingly relatable.

And honestly who hasn’t done this?

This in particular is horrifying. Sir, are you OK?

Twitter user Sofia pointed out the line between depression meal and broke is pretty fine.

While a debate kicked off about the line between depression meals and veganism.

One thing this thread has taught us is that we are genuinely concerned for the lot of you, are y’all OK?
