I used to get asked all the time when my friends mums found out i was on medication for depression there exact words where "what do you have to be depressed about" which always made me feel worse, because there is no underlying issue as to why i have depression, i wasnt raped or abused, i was hardly even bullied in school, my parents are still together hell compared to some people i had the perfect life. but i was still depressed. and now that im older ive realized you don't need a reason to be depressed because depression isnt a choice, you dont one day wake up and say to yourself im going to be depressed today. thats not how depression works. no one has any control over this illness no one has a choice as to weather the develop depression, and i think the sooner people realise this the better it will be for everyone suffering it would be easier to speak out if we are struggling.
