This is a bit of a rant post so apologises in advance if it annoys you.. Why do people use the word depression so loosely?
I am lucky enough not to suffer from depression but I do know people who do suffer from depression.
It’s certainly not a nice thing to have, it’s hard to watch people go through this but you need to be there for them and support them through their journey. We need to break the stigma and taboo of talking about mental illness and we need to do it now!
Here is the defintion for anybody who wpuld like to know.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living.
So please do not use the word depressed lightly it certainly isn’t a light matter. Let’s break the stigma
