CLINICAL DEPRESSION

CLINICAL DEPRESSION Clinical Depression Is an insidious disease It puts many of you well people off And makes you all quite ill at ease Mostly you don't understand it And you don't want to know You bury your heads in the sand Your minds you don't want to grow You shun those with the condition You don't want to discuss it Do you think if you speak of it You might actually catch it? It's an invisible condition Therefore it musn't exist But what of those who suffer it? Beware: It's a condition not sexist It can strike any one of us With no discrimination We suffer in silence Please: show us some compassion! © ELR 2013

    You write of many things but with this subject you seem to have known someone with it or you've had a brush with it yourself! If the latter is true, it distresses me... if only I could help. My heart is with you dear soul! Big warm hugs xoxoxoxoxoxo

    Thank you for your sweet, kind words, dear Jack :) I have been suffering from depression for about 20 years, but have learned to live with it and deal with it. That being said, your daily smiles and warm huggeroonies are far better tonics than anything that comes in a bottle from the pharmacy - so keep 'em comin' !! :) xoxox

    I suffer from severe depression and used to keep it to myself, now I am not fussed who knows. It is hard to explain to others exactly how you feel and that you can't simply 'snap out of it'. =)

    Likewise, Thomas. It's impossible for most people to understand that you cannot simply just 'snap out of it'. My best wishes (and understanding) to you.
