You Are Not Alone graphic 

By sharing your experience, you can let others know that they are not alone.

What does depression feel like to me: wanting to feel numb; to stop feeling the anguishing, agonizing emotion pain; nothing matters, nothing changes the hopelessness; being extremely tired, with out the energy [or desire] to even brush my teeth.

And yes, it feels like this a lot too.

Mental illness quote: "It feels like everyone else is moving on with their lives while I am stuck here in this hole that I can't climb out of."

Tell your story. What does depression feel like to you. Let people know they’re not alone. Join mental health advocate groups or organizations. Volunteer. See a doctor/contact a mental health organization/professional if you think you or a member of your family might have a mental health issue.

Give some one a hug.

Tell them they have value and worth.

Depression takes those words from your vocabulary.


I love dialogue. Do you?
