I suffer with depression…it runs in my family. Anyone barking about depression being an excuse or yelling at me to snap out of it…well…I can’t & that’s not a damn excuse.
Unless you are a doctor trained to treat depression…don’t charge at me like a raging bull. I live in a black & gray world. I’m NOT alright. Depression comes without warning & often lingers. Its NOT sadness…its much more intense…intense enough to promote thoughts of suicide…not that I want to die,but that I don’t want to suffer anymore.
I can’t snap out of just because someone commands it. Its a disease…I have no control of it. NO,that’s not an excuse…that’s reality. A doctor can prescribe pills to ease the suffering,but there is no cure for depression.
Its a mental & emotional disease. I’ve had it since I was a child. I had it back when I was in prime physical health,eating healthy foods & working out 5 days a week. It has nothing to do with my diet. THERE IS NO CURE. I’m not on meds. I use prayer & meditation. Yes,my diet is a mess…so is my entire life.
