I’m Not A Doctor, I Just Play One on TV ;)

Through my posts, I simply wish to inform.  My hope is that if someone needs the information to get help, and I’ve provided that information, I’ve helped that person.  I am NO expert professionally or medically on the subject of Depression.  My posts come from personal experience and self-education on the subject.

If you truly need help, please seek out that help through a professional.  I’ve listed a LOT of resources on my page Depression and Mental Health Help.  You can find that page HERE.

My best piece of advice to you, if you need help is to TALK to someone.  Anyone.  A friend, a teacher, a minister/priest, your doctor.  But TALK.  TELL someone what you are feeling.

Depression is a deep, dark, solitary-loving, beast.  If you’re depressed, you tend to isolate yourself.  The more you isolate yourself, the more depressed you become.  The beast just grows and feeds off your isolation.  This is why it’s so important to TALK to someone.

I’ve had a lot of comments when it comes to my posts on Depression.  My stats spike every time I write about it.  I appreciate the comments and all of the support I’ve received from everyone.  It’s amazing.  Truly wonderful, and I am so thankful
