Thanks for sharing. I don’t suffer depression myself, but it is a disease we should all be aware of. Sometimes it is all so easy to think, ‘Why can’t they just cheer up.’
I wish more people suffering depression would reach out and seek help. I personally think a lot of people have issues about taking antidepressants. But as you said there is no shame. If you have cancer you seek medical treatment, if you have a broken foot you seek medical treatment. If you have depression…why not seek medical treatment. Especially if it makes you feel better.
