Posted in depression, people I love by Tanae' A. on October 23, 2007

You know how we all have those little subjects that we just had to start a discussion about because it just gets to us in the worst way?? Well, I have a few but there is one in particular that I have been kinda forced to deal with and discuss over the past week or so. Depression. This something that I hate to even think about it but since I am being forced to deal with it at this point in my life I guess I might as well get used to it.

A lot of people go thru stages of depression. It is not uncommon at all. Sometimes it is the result of sickness, illness or death and other times it is simply just there. I hate it. I’ve dealt with it, overcome it and never looked back until something came up out the blue. Depression affects everyone. If someone that you love is depressed it is def going to affect you in some way. The hardest thing to do is to have someone close to you suffering in such a way and not being able to do anything about it. There are 500 different pills out and 800 different solutions but a pill cant erase the fact that someone that you absolutely adore cant even put a smile on their face because something in them feels so empty. I wish there was something I could do to help this person. I wish I could take their place. They are strong, they’ve been to hell and back and still survived but this is something that they shouldn’t have to deal with.

I want to get rid of this dreadful 10 letter word and move on with my life but moving is not an option when the one that I love is hurting because of this. I guess all we can do now is pray that they get over this.
