There’s Hope for Depression

This was written with people who ‘do not have or have never experienced  depression’  in mind.

I prefer to use the word experience instead of suffer from as it has a more positive connotation and this subject needs all the positivity it can get.

Where to begin?… maybe a depiction of what it feels like so you are able to understand  & empathize because if you have never been through this experience, then it seems somewhat incomprehensible.

Depression Feels Like Drowning

It’s a mental state that physically pains you; like a heavy blanket that weighs you down; a dark cloud threatening to never let the sun shine through; a lonely space; a place where nothing or no-one is able to ease your pain…

You pray, beg and plead for it to pass, go away and stay away but to no avail. Once it takes hold of you, you have no control!

Then there are the days when it seemingly disappears; almost catching you totally by surprise. The moment you realise it has dissipated, you pray, beg and plead for it to stay away, but over this to, you have no control!I'm Not Okay

It’s sneaky I tell you!

Sometimes just pouncing on you unawares. Coming out of nowhere.

But then there are times when you know it’s there, (somewhere in the back of your mind), lurking in the shadows. It even has the ability to haunt you in broad daylight, like a wild cat slowly stalking its prey and there you are either unsuspecting or all afraid, almost anticipating its pounce!

DEPRESSION HATES COMPANY! YOU DO NOT WANT PEOPLE AROUND WHEN YOU ARE FEELING THIS WAY!!

THE STRANGE THING IS THAT DEPRESSION LIFTS WHEN IN COMPANY!!!

SO MY ADVICE IS TO SOMETIMES FORCE YOUR WAY INTO THIS PERSONS COMPANY IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO COMFORT OR CONNECT WITH THEM!

THEY MAY FEEL ANNOYED & EVEN EXPRESS THIS TRYING TO PUSH YOU AWAY BUT PERSEVERE BECAUSE YOU ARE ALL THEY HAVE!!
