The Fight Goes On

2 years ago, I couldn’t tell everyone that I was suffering from depression.  I was afraid that I will be judged not only by my friends but also my relatives. Back then, we normally think that depression was just a normal thing and that people can easily bounce back. Clearly,  that wasn’t the case.

Nowadays, people understand it much better. I was even surprised when a friend asked if I was visiting a psychiatrist when I admitted to her that I was suffering from depression. Yes, the prejudice is still around but one does not need to stand alone to break it. I know I still haven’t admitted to the majority of my friends that I suffer from depression,  but I really look forward to the day when the pretending can finally stop and I can finally work towards my freedom.

Until that day, I am John Kevin Cadiz, and I am suffering from mild depression.

    too bad, most Pinoys still look at “our case” (yes, me too, previously) as something that you can simply shake off. seek help and fight😀

    That’s so common here in the US. Just go to the psychiatrist for some talkan medication. You’ll be fine.

    Hi. I’ve already accepted you in the group. I feel sorry to hear that but what’s really important is that you have not denied the fact that you’re suffering from depression. That’s the first step towards recovery. You might really want to try searching over the net to look for experts who can help you. I wish I could but i still got lots of studies to go through before becoming one. Stay safe and stress-free.🙂
