"Nobody knows the trouble I've seen".........These words reign true for so many people. And, the truth is....we do not know of the troubles that others carry on their shoulders.
It was sad news to read about the death of Robin Williams. It is always sad when a person takes their own life.
How many would love to have the fame that he had? How sweet it would be to have the abilities to act and to have the Blessing of making others laugh. However.....the death of Robin Williams is just another example of how outside pictures have a unique way of disguising the truth of the hurt and pain that a person may be feeling on the inside...
The word "Depression" is used so often in our lives and it has become a common word among so many doctors. Does this mean that we have allowed the sadness in our lives to qualify us as being depressed just because a doctor diagnoses a problem as such?
Real depression is sometimes very difficult to diagnose correctly. The reason why is because most people get down and out at times and their life seems so blue. This kind of feeling has a way of masking real depression. There are times when we feel tormented due to our sadness over life or over certain situations that we have no control over. When we talk to others.....the first words are USUALLY...."You are just Depressed!"
Depression is REAL......I've been there and I have truly experienced real depression. Five years of living a life that was not mine. I was a prisoner in my own body and there was nothing that I could do to change my situation. Doctor's, candy coated my situation and even though their medical documentations were coded as depression, the only hope they offered me was in a pill.
I experienced the feeling of NO HOPE...until my husband took things in his own hands. He searched and searched until he found a Doctor that knew how to treat my depression. But first, he had to treat my illness in order to cure my depression.
I had a huge hormone imbalance that was practically killing me. I needed surgery to correct the issue and I needed to be treated with proper hormone replacement. I had the surgery and within just a few weeks, I was back to my old self. After living five years of not understanding my life, and sometimes, not wanting to live, I was finally healed!!!
My husband was the only person that knew just how sick I was. My parents, my siblings, my friends......none of them knew what was going on. I worked hard to hide my sickness, and there were many times when I failed. It was during the times when I failed that most friends and family just assumed that I was a person who needed meds.
There were many times when I would try to hide what I felt inside, from my husband..... I'm so thankful that he saw through me and knew I needed help.
As we all know, many cases of depression have very sad endings and this is just one of the reasons that it is so important for us all to know the symptoms of this horrible disease. Depression is a big thing and it goes far beyond what many people can fathom. I, in no way, claim to be an expert in dealing with depression.....I only know that it is real.
Enjoy the Blessings of this day!
