Evidence Depression isn’t “In Your Head”
I need friends, and those I care about, to read this. This is pivotal. This is so very important when you read a friend’s message, hear a voice mail, anything that indicates they are depressed, not to respond with:
A. But what happened…..?
B. Everything seemed alright yesterday…..?
C. Can’t you just do something to make yourself feel better….?
A. Nothing “happened”. Chemistry and body mechanics happened.
B. Sure, I “seemed” okay yesterday, but my dark episode(s) have been brewing under the surface for days.
C. Sure, I’d love to jump up and do something to make anything feel better than this. But part of the struggle is that depression completely cripples a person.
