30 Days of  Truth…

Day 25 Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

 If by “giving up on life”, it is meant to be suicide, no.
If a deep dark “dark night of the soul depression,  yes.  and more than once.
 And I speak out about it and share it because I believe the stigma of depression is huge in our world.
 A clinical depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain and it is a medical diagnosis and is treatable.  Depression tends to start in the teen years for many people, and off and on for the rest of ones life.
Everyone isn’t the same.  Some people can function and it passes after a period of time.  For others,  it is a life long problem that affects the activities of daily living and personal relationships.  The effects of depression are unique to each person.  I cannot express the feelings of depression… “PissyKitty” has eloquently described depression and I defer to her blog.
