    Hi, everybody!  Merely  Me is away until tomorrow, so she asked me to post her Question of the Week today. 

    I think most of us have had times when we’ve felt that no one understands what we’re going through or that there’s no way to explain how we feel to someone else.Or we may be afraid to talk about how we feel because the other person might think less of us or not love us.And there certainly are many stories out there about experiences of stigma in the workplace or misconceptions that many people have about those who suffer from any kind of mental illness or disorder.  So, the question for you is:

    What is it that you most wish other people (such as family, friends or the general public) understood about depression?

     

    I’ll start out by saying that I wish people would try to learn more about depression and how it affects us so that they would be less afraid to talk about it or would be less judgmental of those of us who are struggling with it.  Then they would know how hard we try to be “normal,” to perform our jobs or take care of our families, because we don’t want to be a burden.  There are a lot more things I wish people understood about it, but I will leave it to other members here to continue the list.Please let us know what you think – we can all learn from each other!  Let's give Merely Me something to read when she gets back. Smile
