    Default Ever been depressed?

    If not, don't read this, you won't "get" it. If yes, this blog will blow your mind. I don't think I have ever read anything in my life that captures what depression can be like for the person experiencing it.

    Done with a very dry sense of humor (may or may not be intentional...) but between some of the comments and the cartoons, I laughed out loud in a few spots and teared up in a few others.

    Wow...

    yeah that's pretty spot-on..i've dealt with it my entire life and the most annoying part is when people are like " oh stop it! back in my day we didn't feel 'depressed' we were just self-pitying! you just need to be more positive and snap out of it! cut the shit!". i hate that because so many people in my family have suffered from it to the point where they became paranoid and delusional and once they got on meds its like a different person. im still trying to battle it, but i feel like its getting better or maybe im just telling myself that lol. the first part of the cartoons summed it up pretty well

    Someone posted this on my fb page yesterday. It's dead on! Feels exactly that way. And I love her sense of humor!

    I saw that on tumblr the other day. Love it! She had a pretty well-known, hilarious blog before that post, and she hit gold when she posted that one.

    My partner suffers from bipolar (thankfully, he's medicated, and his meds are working perfectly for him), so he and I both enjoyed it.

    I have cyclothemia and cycle between irritation and depression to happy happy happy.
    Depression sucks. Especially knowing your supposed to smile and laugh so you do and then it's like.....yeah and ppl think you're feeling better but your not.

    Luckily for me it goes away...then comes back....then goes away....then comes back....

    At least I have my daughter to keep me at least acting semi normal. Like making food and taking her....outside...to play with other kids. *shudder*

    Exactly how it feels. Exactly.

    Posted that on my facebook for some friends who know all too well... and for the friends that will likely never understand. I can't thank you enough for this link. You've made me laugh at something I had difficulty laughing at in my past.
