We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness compatible with out we join up with them and fall in mutal weirdness and I call it love. So all you need is someone who joins in on your weirdness. That is what I learned after my time with depression. I know it sounds crazy that I write about it, but I have too.
I wanna share my story. Depression is more than just feeling sad or going through a rough patch. It’s a serious mental health condition. A lot of people deny it. They think it will be over soon, that it’s only one episode in a lifetime, but for most people depression recurs. Without treatment, episodes may last a few months to several years. People with severe depression can feel so hopeless that they become a risk for suicide. I’m not a risk, that’s why I can tell my story, that I wanna share my story.
I look back on it as a huge challenge and one I have to fight with every day, every single day. It will never be really over. But I will get better soon.
