Part of what I deal with is a chemical imbalance. I've talked about that in another post. Part of what I deal with is another thing. It's an emotional response to things in my life. That is the depression I want to talk about today.
I don't know a single person who hasn't had that moment of "I can't handle this any more." If someone tells you that they don't have these moments, they're lying. They may not recognize it when it happens but it's there just the same.
Those are the days where getting out of bed is too difficult. When you can't focus on anything. When nothing feels worth doing. You need to understand that you can get past it.
It feels like you can't, like there will never be another happy day in your life. But it gets better. It may take an hour or a day. But you can get that positive feeling back again. You just have to keep telling yourself "It isn't the end, it will get better."
And in the end it does.
