There's Something Here

To be honest I've been feeling not just ill lately, but also pretty depressed. It's a tough situation I've found myself in right now. I don't even know why I'm all that depressed. I just kind of am. Being depressed is one of those things that just seems to come and go for me.

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?

  1. I get down, pretty far. Cleaning helps bring the upswing, but I have to feel like it.

  2. Depression is serious I know I suffer from it, well I do when I don't have any happy pills (anti depression meds)

  3. Oh man, the classic "just do something fun" advice, except even worse. People please, if it were that easy people would never be depressed for very long.
    At least you can find comfort in the fact you're probably better at giving advice than, like, over half the population of planet earth?
