Dear Depression:

Every human being should
have to experience depression at
least one week of their lives.
(Not that I'd ever wish it upon anyone!)

     To give them a teeny-tiny chance at empathy...

Not "down in the dumps" depression,

but, "I want to die every minute
of every day" depression; "I'm walking in quicksand
and sinking fast" depression;
I don't really know why the fuck
I'm even depressed" depression.  Does there even need to be
a reason?  Hell, no!  Some think so.  Is it an illness, a chemical imbalance, a mental illness?  Yes, yes, and yes!!!

Depression is NOT simply
feeling sorry for yourself. We've all done that
at one point or other.  It's
a horrifying monster attached to your psyche
draining/sucking your energy & your very life from you.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines depression like this:

(1)  :  a state of feeling sad :(2)  :  a psychoneurotic disorder marked especially by sadness, inactivity, difficulty in thinking and concentration, a significant increase or decrease in appetite and time spent sleeping, feelings of dejection and hopelessness, and sometimes suicidal tendencies.

Well, that's a good's much more than that.

If you're experiencing depression

or suicidal tendencies
PLEASE seek help:

U.S. National Suicide Prevention Helpline:


Worldwide Suicide Crisis Sites to HELP YOU!

And definitely talk to a Family Physician
or to a caring friend or family member

I also highly recommend that, should
you seek empathy/help from a family member
who berates you or does not help/believe you,
then go to a physician or clinic
where you WILL find nonjudgmental empathy,
sympathy, and help...and remember,
you can and will get better!
