9 Secrets I’ve Uncovered About Depression, Which No One Told Me

224



As for me: today, right now, depression is still hard work, but it’s not the backbreaking effort it was a few years ago, or even the uphill climb it was a few months back. Some day, I truly believe that managing it will be no more difficult than, say, feeding myself, or keeping my unruly hair in check — daily tasks that, though not effortless, I mastered years ago, and even take some pleasure in doing these days. Until then, I will continue to strive and struggle, succeeding in some moments and failing in others, and taking heart in the fact that I am far from alone. That’s no secret, but it bears repeating: no matter where you are in the process of figuring out depression, you are not alone.

  1. "like all work, it is easier the longer you do it". For me this is so wrong. I have been struggling for over 30 years and it is just as hard now if not harder than it has ever been. I am fed up with battling this disease, so hard work is harder.

  2. A very intelligent article which dissects an illness with insightful precision, and lets those who suffer to clearly see it's not a dark, supernatural entity but visceral like any disease. Thank you for this. I really needed to understand my depression in these terms. I'm still reeling from the thought of how accurately it applies to me. I will not let the liar to whisper falsehood in my ear anymore. Thank you once again!
