Shiny Happy People Holding Hands

HandsHave I told you how amazing it feels to turn your life around lately? I’m sure I have, in fact I am certain that I am bordering on obsessively telling you how amazing I feel lately but I just needed you to know it. I needed you to know how quickly my perspective changed on so many things once I realized that I needed to supplement my body’s availability of serotonin by taking my one magic pill. I use the term magic pill loosely because just because my pill works for me does not mean that it will work for everyone. In fact during my time in college I went through a variety of anti-depressants before I found the one that worked for me. That said though, I need you to know that the world truly can be a beautiful place. I don’t think we realize how dark things have become sometimes, I don’t think we notice that all hope has faded and that we are living under a cloud. With the help of some very special people in my life I was able to recognize that I was in trouble and I honestly can’t tell you how much things have changed for me since then.

Most of all I need you to know that there is no shame in admitting depression and there is no shame in accepting medications as a way to help you get “back to good”. If you find yourself refusing medication because of the stigma or for any other reason centering on how other people may view you, I need you to know that no one but you matters right now. Whatever it takes to get you “back to good” is what matters.

If you are struggling with depression please talk to someone, please ask for help because there’s a whole new world just waiting for you once that dark cloud disappears.
