Yep, I have depression!

Funny that, when people first worked, I had depression, most people checked that, I was OK! That lasted a number of days. Think most people think depression, is like a cold. You just get over it, well you don’t! People telling me, to get over it, cheer up, man up, stop being so gay… Like that helps!

I said to myself, when I put myself on a train like one night after work, i did not want to be in that place again, I am! Don’t worry, not on or anywhere near the train line!

Just wish, I could remember, what is was like to be happy!

  1. I too suffer from depression and have had a few of the darkest moment possible.

    Every time I have been near to the “end” I have been able to remind myself that things DO get better and they do. Reminding myself about this helps me to not take the final step.

    The other thing I realise is that my depression is a form of involuntary self-punishment – it is cyclic and it feeds itself like an out of control nuclear reaction. Realising this does not cure me or prevent depression BUT since the point I accepted this my episodes of being “down” have been shorter and nowhere near as dark.

    Oh, yes, getting on a bike is darn good therapy too!

    Take care and remember you are never alone with this!
