Where wild minds come to rest
Im not suggesting anyone do something theyre not comfortable with, or not ready for. But im just thinking what if more people told others about MDD. I personally think that MDD is much more common then any of us realize. For example, as a child, i use to be a compulisve liar. In order to make my dreams feel more real to me, i would tell others about them. I eventually grew out of doing that, thank god, but recently ive been thinking compulsive liars are very well known. Maybe more of them have MDD like me, theyve just never grown out of lying. The point is, if more people with MDD came out and told the right people, it could help steer us in the right direction for help. I know its not easy. It took me 17 years just to finally admit it to myself. And then another three years to finally tell my therapist. Which lead me to research MDD. And today, ive just told a psychiatrist, who gave me some very helpful suggestions and explanations for this strange addiction i have. I havent felt this hopeful in a long time. Im staritng to put the peices of my life together. I couldnt have done that if i hadnt been completely honest witht he right people. I hope and pray that those of you who are ready can tell the right people, and ask for help. The more people do that, the more the word gets out about MDD. I truely believe knowledge leads to change.
