All you regular readers know that I suffer from depression and most of my vignettes are written either when I’m falling into a period or just coming out. This was written many years ago and delves into what I feel or don’t feel when under the grip of depression.
I’m getting round to putting my previous writing back on the website and I do find it strange when I re-read these vignettes. There is something familiar yet alien about them.
I’m in a good place at the moment and this just reminds me to hang on to how I am feeling right now for as long as I can.
If you know anyone that suffers from depression, please be understanding. They may continually push you away, but that is a symptom of the condition. Be there for them. Be understanding and be kind. There may be very little you can do when they are in the depths of there depression, but you can make sure you are still there when they come out of it.
