Depression Sucks.

For my dear friends who struggle with this, (and I have too) and for the people who love you, important words so beautifully and honestly expressed.

Strong Humble Warriors

I don’t want to talk.

I need rest.

I need silence.

The thoughts in my mind are overwhelming. They won’t stop. My life is a constant battle of outside voices competing with internal thoughts. It’s too much.

I don’t know how, but I need rest.

I’m lonely, but I can’t silence the storm of thoughts in my mind when another voice is in my ear; so I shut everyone out and feel relieved when they finally walk away.

    A hard hitting read Vanessa. It is something I thing we all encounter at some point in our lives and the more people sharing their experiences can only be for the better. Prince Harry has been talking about his battles after the death of his mother and so it is a hot topic in the UK at the moment. Thank you for sharing this.

      Thanks Davy. It is intriguing to me because there are so many contributing factors I believe. It is important for us to talk about it, obviously for the sake of those who don’t understand. I am personally affected by environmental chemicals that have messed with my endocrine system etc. since I was very young. I didn’t realise that it was such a hot topic there right now. I am sure it was a devastating time for them, the whole situation was so complex, I can’t imagine.
