Having, or suffering from, depression is depressing in itself. It is a constant battle with oneself which a lot of people do not understand, including those who suffer from the mental disease. I say diseases because I believe it to be such. The problem is that society places a strange label on all who admit to fighting something which may or might be considered a mental disorder. I believe everyone at some time in their lives fights depression, just some of us for a longer period of time. It requires treatment as left untreated it may lead to death. So, for all you who suffer from depression, as do I, my hope is that today you will remain depression free.
