One of the problems with it is that it is sooo depressing. Ok that sounds really obvious but what I mean is this:
Because it rings a personal note with me and I have a low mood a lot of the time, it’s not something I would actively seek out more knowledge and understanding on - partly because it is so painful to even think about. So it effectively stopped me from wanting to find out more about it. Knowledge is power, but it left me powerless because I was always in denial of the way I was feeling
That changed when I filmed a few videos and released them on you tube - my channel is called manvdepression
Suddenly I felt a buzz I hadn’t had before and it made me want to find out as much about my depression as possible. Sometimes this will be really hard but I owe it to myself to keep going because the more I understand about myself the more in control I feel. Also if some of this helps just one other person then it will be worth it.
It’s worth it anyway just for me and my happiness.
