Absolutely, one of the most interesting threads yet.....I do believe however if The philosophical study of causation or etiologies, if you will, of depression could be disected individually and behaviorally speaking, I do believe that we all would be provided or experiencing a much more ('comfy') physical well-being or relief......and maybe even afforded a much needed peace of mind, free from stress. A feeling that is conducive to mental ease for lengthy periods without meds, now that would be nice too!!
I just can relate to so many of you here and have read nearly all about the 'truth about depression'.
I happen to be experiencing some of my darkest days right now and need to be where there is an intuitive awareness around me in what I feel to be a general atmosphere having a common ground . Am alone with no-one to talk to and feel as though I have friends here who at least feel somewhat the same or at the very least are willing to understand my tears. I absolutely cannot answer someone when they ask me why I am crying? What is wrong with you? Hate that question! It is usually one that an answer is not wanted back anyway. Don't call me is what I want to say.
I spend most of my time alone ......But to define how I hide my depression would be simple. I can enter a room full of strangers to each other. But before I left I would make sure no-one would be a stranger to one another. I have been told I am the life of the party. I make people laugh and enjoy themselves. I guess I wear a great mask. Don't frequent a gathering much anymore! Drains me.....
