Depression really sucks.

“There’s something so terrifying about admitting weakness. Admitting to flaws within yourself. Exposing that to others. I really wish that saying “I’m depressed” was akin to saying, “Excuse me, but it appears I’m trapped in a swampy pond right now, and I’m having a hard time climbing to the surface. Is there any chance you would mind helping me out? Thank you ever so kindly.” Because that’s the truth of it. You aren’t weak. You are literally trapped somewhere that you don’t have total control over.”

Oh yes.
