Good day all! There are those of us who suffer from a quiet and deadly disease; depression. Finally after years of study and research, people are finally beginning to see that depression is a disease and not just in someones head; but, in actuality, it is in their head, and it’s our reality.
I myself currently struggle with depression, so much so, that there are times I don’t want to get out of bed; and I don’t. Some days my feelings are different than others. Some days I feel lost or like someone doesn’t care about how I feel. Sometimes, it’s sadness, guilt, anger, heartbreak, loneliness, insecurity, low self-esteem, fear, anxiety, hate, rolled into one. Some days are better than others, some days I only have one of these issues, some days I have all of them at once…
Depression can be so overwhelming to a person, and can affect everyone around them. But not knowing how to react to someone with the illness, can sometimes make matters worse for that person. Thanks to people who have dedicated their time and energy looking into depression, others are finally understanding what causes it, and how they can deal with someone who has it.
Depression is a debilitating disease, so much so, that there are times that I won’t leave my room or my home, except to use the washroom. Unless you know what depression feels like, there is no way to know exactly how someone who has it, is going through.
These days, I have chosen to begin writing again and I find that it is helping me with the depression. I look forward to logging onto my website and see who takes a look at things I have posted, before I never used to care. I am NOT going to let depression win this battle within myself, and nobody else should either. Most times we have to deal with this in our own way, so be patient and understanding, not judgmental and critical about the disease. With the proper support and help, I will get through this, you, will get through this. It just takes time.
