"You can't reason yourself back into cheerfulness any more than you can reason yourself into an extra six inches in height" - Stephen Fry
I am sick. So sick of people treating Depression like it isn't a serious issue. "You're lying", "You're faking", "You're just trying to get attention", "Stop being so whiny", "Instead of being sad all the time, just be happy!"
If depression was so easy to fix, I wouldn't have had to put up with it for over ten years, I wouldn't have had to see three different therapists in the last four years, and I wouldn't have eight suicide attempts.
There IS no easy cure to depression. Believe me, I sure wish there was.
