Hello, you're doing great

17 Aug 2019

I didn't realise I had depression for quite some years after I'd been walking around with it. Never knowing why I felt the ways I did (even after speaking to my doctor) I blundered through trying to make sense of it all. It wasn't spelled out to me. The name not uttered. I made a slow discovery over many years, feeling a bit stupid eventually, and of course I carried it around still under wraps as I'd been shown was the way to do it. Thankfully, we are slowly seeing a huge shift in this type of behaviour. I still tend not to tell people but I think quite a lot of that is just who I am rather than any sort of shame or embarrassment.

For anyone reading today who is still unsure of where they are or why they feel so bad, I wonder if you might be able to send a little light. Anyone who is able, please leave just a couple of words or a short sentence in the comments to give a little hope. Perhaps something you wish you had heard. I have lots collected over the years but something I often return to is "Those who mind don't matter, those who matter don't mind".

It's score time. Let's see where we are today so we can adjust accordingly. I will if you will.

Love from
