90210..What

You know you have problems and you might be depressed when you are watching Sex and The City reruns (2008) and Beverly Hills 90201 reruns (2009). The numbers are not when anything aired but when I was lost in depression and watched it.

And to be fair, 90210 was from my high school years and I happened to have a DVD of the first season so when I got tired of Sex and The City reruns, I pulled it out and watched it again and again.

Cause it’s a time in my high school years when things were better? Depression hadn’t hit? My diagnosis wasn’t real?

There are a lot of reasons I suppose why you watch certain television at certain times but bottom line: Now, I see the signs and if I am watching any ridiculous reality show, or a DVD from ancient eras, I take a step back and ask myself. Are you depressed? Or is this just junk food television?

I don’t know. But it’s a sign worthy of thinking about.
