JDOCD has blessed my life in so many ways! I am lucky enough to have a husband who understands my obsession (and even enjoys watching Johnny movies with me at times), and never criticizes me for it. I have also met some wonderful people here and I'm so thankful that I can count all of you as my friends and share in the "sickness". It has also renewed my interests in playing the guitar (trying to, anyway!), actually taking some quiet time to read books, and just enjoying the arts in general. I've also been able to really "find myself" and enjoy the person that I am, and not apologize anymore for just being me! I 'm finally comfortable in my own skin...thanks to this sickness we all share here...JDOCD.
ahhh , you ve got me all tearful now, i thought i was just having a moment, but you guys have put it so poetical that now i get it, i too have raised 3 boys with all the usual work/school/homework stuff that i guess i had no time for myself and no time to do something i wanted to do , strangely enough, by coming here, i too have been encouraged to read more, ive read 5 books since july, and radiating ? yes, i too believe i am , maybe he/us is just a momentary escape from the real world and all the responsibilities it brings, but i would nt change things for all the money in the world

JDOCD has changed my life sooo much I'm much happier then before I'm feel good about myself and as Johnny said its a good thing to be weird People around me always say ow you talk to much about Johnny but I dont care I talk about Johnny as much as I want to I'm sooo glad that Johnny is in my life Johnny is the best thing that is in my life I love Johnny Depp forever!!!
I feel like there was a fog in front of my eyes for 36 years, and the second Lily-Rose was born, that fog just lifted and everything became totally clear and focused~ Johnny Depp To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.
JDOCD is a sickness that makes people well. I never thought about it like that either. I think Johnny has made me a happier person as in I have a better outlook on life in general. I try not to hold grudges and if stuff goes a bit sour in my life, I tend to look on the brighter side. pineapple happens, that's life, so you just get over it and move on. An old saying that still stands today; "There is no use crying over spilt milk." When I was a kid, I used to think that was the dumbest thing my Mum used to say, but now, I get it.
A few years ago, a Zoner, in response to someone telling her she should get over her Johnny obsession and get a life, said "I have a life, I need a fantasy."
I wish I could remember who it was, because that just sums up my JDOCD in a nutshell.
I began writing for the first time, and doing the little pic manips, I've figured out how to really use a computer and the web, I've read books by people I probably never would have heard of, I've met wonderful people on the JDsites, and I'm a little more outgoing and just generally happier. All those things have given me a little more confidence in myself.
It all came out of the fantasy life and the desire to pursue the obsession.
Don't ever take shit off of anyone, ever~ BettySue "... there appears to be nothing he can do about the tenacity of his beauty."~Decca Aitkenhead
"First of all, I wouldn't fuck with someone with a dead bird on their head."~J.Depp
I think he would be genuinely happy to read/hear about how he's affected our lives in such a postive way. How can JDOCD be a bad thing when it's brought so many great people from all over the world together?
A passion should be nurtured regardless of what it is, why should we be miserable in ourselves when it takes something so simple to make us happy?
