  1. This is a wonderful post. Depression is affecting a growing proportion of our population and still no one wants to talk openly about.
    Many years ago I saw a psychiatrist for a couple of years. I couldn’t help noticing the difference between her waiting room and the one of my regular M.D. In the M.D.’s people coughed and emitted sounds of pain. As a group the appeared sick and wounded, but in an exaggerated way as if the one who looked the worst would be cared for next. On the other hand, the people in the psychiatrist’s office struggled to look normal. They were there but they wanted to appear like they had it together. I laughed at this comparison and I think it speaks to your post as well.

    1. Depression is definitely making an entrance into our lives slowly and steadily as we are holding onto our feelings and hurt. Well, even if we do, no one would take the sting to understand it except the shrink because he/she is getting the money. It’s a funny little complicated world. I even laughed at the comparison. Thank you for making me smile. Thank you so much for leaving a response. I appreciate it.

We would love to hear your thoughts! Tell us what you think!
