I’ve always had a soft spot for the pink variety of depression glass. It’s soothing and comforting. I remember reading the book How to be Happy by Stephen Covey, and he talks about the three levels of self-awareness. I’ve always felt like the pink piece of glass has a way of being both soothing and uplifting at the same time, and I’ve been trying to incorporate it into my life for the past few years.
Well, Ive never been a fan of the pink depression glass, but I think that if you need to put a smile on your face, you can probably find a source that will do it. I was watching a movie on a recent holiday break (I was living in Sweden at the time) and the main character was wearing a pink depression glass. When he came out of the shower he looked like a different person, but I thought it was so cute that I was smiling.
People who don’t have depression, anxiety, or other severe mood disorders, don’t typically like to smile. It makes them feel like they’re “crying,” and they avoid looking at themselves because it makes them feel uncomfortable.
I would love to be able to laugh at myself more often. People who have mood disorders usually get so stressed out, they end up feeling like they can’t laugh or have fun at all because it makes them feel so miserable. Even though you are able to laugh at yourself less often, I feel like I would be less irritable if I could.
I’m not sure why I feel this way but I do. I recently tried depression treatment, which is basically a pill that you take and hope it will kick you in the ass (or maybe like a really strong painkiller). I started with just a few pills and then I was able to laugh more often. Then the medication had side effects that were really strange. The medication makes me feel like I’m not just sitting in a room, I’m actually doing something.
I have no idea if that’s true, but I know it sounds like bullshit. As a matter of fact, it’s like I’m talking to a wall. Maybe it’s just because I’m not sure if I’m depressed enough to be suicidal, but I also don’t feel like I’m doing anything at all. That’s probably also what it feels like to depression people.
I’ve been in therapy, and I’ve been seeing a psychiatrist, but I’ve also been taking medication that seems to make me feel like Im not even real. All I really want to do is throw up, but that seems to be all I can do.
There’s so much more to depression than suicidal thoughts. Depression is a spectrum of feelings and behaviors, and the same medications that make depression feel like an incurable disease can also make it feel like a very manageable illness. That’s why there is a lot of debate about the best type of medication to treat depression. The ones that are most commonly used are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and the newer antidepressants that act on different neurotransmitter systems.
Depression, at its core, is an illness. Thats why I believe, for the most part, that anyone who is depressed is depressed. Just because someone isn’t depressed doesn’t mean they aren’t depressed. Everyone has mood swings. Everyone has feelings that aren’t quite right. Everyone has days when things aren’t going right, days when they’re going right, and days when they’re going wrong.
Depression is a medical illness. It can be caused by stress, a lack of serotonin, a lack of sleep, or lack of exercise. Most of these things can be overcome with meds. Sometimes, people take medication to combat depression.
