I told my best friend all about me. My train of thoughts, all my feelings, etc…

She said I was just mentally weak. Well alright.

Nathan James says:

I burst out crying as soon as he mentioned how everything looks normal again and everything gets brighter because depression caused the hues to fade. I thought it was just me. I thought I imagined it all these years. And I just shocked me

Brian Clark says:

Depression truly made my entire life so unhappy before for three years. I was so miserable like everyday I wanted to die. After adhering to this depression therapy “fetching kafon press” (Google it), it did not just aid me to take charge of my life once again, it also made me drop 44 pounds!

Sophie Morrison says:

Truly inspiring , I am recovering from depression it can feel so isolating and lonely and that’s where I found my love for mountain climbing. The best view comes after the hardest climb . Depression is hard but everyone is a fighter they can make it through the storm and life is just so precious it’s hard to think that depression tried to convince me to end my life

Kagi 。 says:

My brother keeps mentioning suicide and I’m now seeing the signs..I’m gonna chat with him later today..I’m lying in bed crying about it..it’s almost 5am..I don’t wanna lose him

Ebi Hijuje says:

When taking medication…it's like…I feel like crying a lot… my head hurts… but I can't cry…cause of the medicine

TrashPanda says:

Vicky zeng says:

I love this so much. I watched this a few times and I can't believe how much I can relate to it. I went through depression. And when I finally felt better, I realized I almost forgot what it was like to be happy…I'm so grateful.
