The Complexities of Depression

Depression is not cut and dry as one may think and it is not just about being down or sad. It is an extreme complex mental condition and intertwines with my brain chemistry that includes damaging thoughts and behaviors that developed over time.

I knew what depression was as a child and what it was not. I also was aware that something was “off” about me but most labeled it weird and I never really fit in. I always had bouts of contentment but also days of gloom and sadness. No one really thinks too much of it. I didn’t either. Humans are really intricate beings with individual backgrounds, genetic make-up, and ways of being. This can go for what depression is.
