Too many people simply do not understand that depression is an illness. A very real illness.
The problem is that there is no blood. No stiches. And there is a whole lot of history, including the latest from Donald Trump, suggesting that depression or ptsd is a choice.
It is not a choice. No one chooses this. And until you have some very specific experience with it? More often than not, it’s not going to have any real impact.
It is very important that people understand this. IT KILLS.
This may make sense to you. It may not. But, The one thing that really matters it that people are dying, because they have not yet found their answer.
Talk about it. Type about it. Say what you are thinking. Say it all. YES – it is nuts. It’s also normal. All those “crazy” thoughts? You’re not alone. You might be surprised at how many people you already know who are fighting similar battles.
The reality: This is but a moment in time. It does pass. Remembering that really matters.
