It's been a while

It’s been a while…Staind sang that in the video. And my friends agreed with me that it was such a depressing video, portraying the singer in a depressed state, and I was so thrilled, elated, ‘cause that was so cool, reflecting my inner self. The way he goes in front of the mirror, and splashes water on his face, the expressions on his face totally matched mine, expressionless, with a slight tinge of pain, physical pain and mental agony that comes with it…”why must I feel this way…” and as I listen to it now, I feel it come back to me, I can relate to it again, not with the feeling of hopelessness, desolation, or depression, but “…its been a while, since I could stand on my own two feet again…” It has been a long time, more than a year since I could start working again, normally, feel happy in doing what I do, what I did, giving good performance in all aspects of my work, …since I could stand on my own two feet again…its been a while, since I could look at myself straight, …since I could see, the candles light your face…(my own), its been a while, but I can still remember just the way you taste (I feel…)

Depression isn’t just a mental illness. Its manifestations can be felt physically. You feel tired, with an aching body, a headache, throbbing…

Dear Puzli,

You are very correct that Depression has physical manifetations. And the sad thing is it is not altogehther psychological too. Many researchers beleive that mood chnages have a definite chemical basis. So is it our fault that we get depressed?? Is it our fault thst we were born with such chemistry??

Good Wishes

Each human being is the sum of many parts. Just because one has not been given a pathological psychiactric label,does not prove that one is free of "eccentricity", as you so delicately expressed mental illness in general. There is no such thing as "normal" as far as mental health is concerned. I smile at each success that you so faithfully report.
You have my support,
