I had the misfortune of having someone tell me to just not be depressed. That's pretty much one of the most annoying, if not one of the worst, things you can say to a depressed person. Someone can't just magically get better from a physical illness and the same is true of a mental illness. It's kind of a shame that mental illnesses aren't as recognised and accepted as physical ones.

Still, those few people I let into my life when I'm depressed really make a difference. It's just a shame that some of them aren't as available as I would have liked, and I wasn't able to allow myself to be selfish. When you're depressed, you don't feel like you're worth making someone go out of their way. It's a shame, but that's the way it goes. I'm sure I'll feel right as rain in a few more days.
You ever have days when you just don't feel like doing, or being, anything?
