He surprised me at work with a vase of flowers since we weren’t going to see each other on our actual anniversary:) #1yearandcounting

I wonder why I don’t make friends at college, but then…

I pick out my first day outfit with the mindset of “what says stay the fuck away from me best?”

Some things need to be settled.

I want to preface this with saying that I have suffered with depression and I am still trying to get a grip on my life and all the grief that has come with being depressed.

Robin Williams died from suicide. For it was not depression that killed him, it was a choice. The chemical imbalances in his brain did not kill him; he died by his own hands. It is indeed a tragic event and loss for all those in his family and those of us who grew up watching him on television. However, instead of only celebrating his life, we need to use this opportunity to finally talk about the real struggle of those who suffer with depression.

For all of you who still claim depression killed him, here are some facts. It is a specific event or series of events most of the time that causes someone to become depressed. Sometimes this lasts for 2 weeks and sometimes it can last for a lifetime. When these feelings stay, and the person starts to dwell on these feelings for an hour or more a day is when the chemical imbalances in our brain start to kick in. To say that something killed you means that you had absolutely no choice in the matter. You physically and mentally could do nothing to stop from dying. Suicide is a choice no matter how gruesome it seems. 

As a population we need to be reaching out to those suffering with depression and help them as best we can. This should open up many doors for suicide help programs to use Williams death as a tool to reach more hurting adults in order to save lives. There is hope for those with depression if only we open our eyes to see it among our friends and family. 

In case you need to know how to help someone who is depressed around here are some links:

If you are having thoughts of suicide

And above all, please don’t be afraid to tell someone. I guarantee you there is one person who wants to help you. Even if you have to tell 15 people before someone really gets it and tries to help, keep letting people know what you are suffering with, because chances are you are not alone in your circle of friends and someone will help you directly or get you help. Do not be afraid. And remember, things do get better.

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines
Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines
In two straight lines they broke their bread
And brushed their teeth and went to bed.
They left the house at half past nine
In two straight lines in rain or shine-
The smallest one was Madeline.”

― Ludwig Bemelmans
