Depression awareness

Depression: I know a lot of people don’t like to talk about it and maybe that is why a lot of people don’t know what it is like to have it or how hard it is to cope with. So here is an eye opener and a look into my journey with depression….I was diagnosed at the age of 15 and have been on 4 different medications as they stopped working eventually. Right now I am on a booster medication as well. So at 28 I take 5 pills a day and I am still depressed. I have had 3 major depression dips where I have fully shut down emotionally, mentally, and physically. These can be triggered by an event of great stress or by nothing. My husband and my daughter have seen me go through many break downs and they feel helpless since there is nothing they can do for me but watch. I put on a fake smile for people to hide how I really feel inside which you get pretty good at faking that smile. Ive had brief thoughts of suicide throughout the years but have talked myself out of them. I go to therapy which helps but isnt 100% effective and never will be. You walk around with persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness. There is many of us out there who have this daily struggle but we are silent sufferers and one day when it does become too much sadly suicide seems like the only option for many. So please I ask you to not be silent about your suffering and to speak out find your voice! Maybe this will lead to more research for this disease, illness whatever you want to call it. Please share this and your story!!!! Don’t suffer in silence when there is help out there for you. #depression #silentsufferers
