This blog post by Wil Wheaton, so much fucking this.
I decided, when I purchased my own web setup and the headache that went along with it, that I wasn’t just going to stick to writing topics on the blog. I’m still not going to get too political or religious here (though some stuff will definitely pop up) and Wil’s post about depression is pretty accurate for me.
Depression is deadly and it’s different for all of us. I don’t lie in bed all day because I can’t, but some people do. I don’t consider suicide, but some people do. Depression gets us where it really hurts, because it uses our worst fears against us. I mean, c’mon, it sends me to corporate fucking America, but bottles up my writing quite a bit. That’s a bastard I ever did know one.
Help yourself, if you can, just by recognizing and admitting it.
Help others, if you can, by sharing, smiling, giving a kind word.
We’re all in this together.
