Crazy, Weak, and Worthless?

02/17/2015

Even attempting to define the condition is painful for me. Our world does not accept kindly those suffering from depression. We are looked upon as a bit “crazy”; weaklings who feel sorry for ourselves; people who forget to “count their blessings.”

To feel depressed is to be “blue” day after day; to experience tiredness that never goes away, not even after ten or twelve hours of sleep; to lack energy for even the smallest of chores; to not be enthusiastic about anything; to be unable to focus or concentrate; to turn molehills into mountains; to be overly sensitive to comments.
