If you were to ask my family,friends and teammates what type of person I am, they would probably say a happy, positive hard working guy. They couldn't be more wrong. I put on a brave face when around them, but I'm the complete opposite when alone. We're not afraid of the dark place we are in now, or what the future will be like. We are afraid that if we talk to people about what we're going through, they won't want to talk to us, that we will loose our jobs and friends. But society isn't like that anymore. In Ireland alone last year, 555 people died due to depression suicide. That's more than in road accidents.
Depression and anxiety are not like a broken arm, where you can go to the hospital and have it fixed. It's not like chicken pox, where you only have it once in your life, and never again. When you have a broken arm, people run over to help, by opening the door for you, helping you carry bags. But with depression and anxiety, it's not the same.
The problem is, no one wants to talk. We should be the generation who makes it ok to not feel good .We should be open to each other.We think that if we open up to our friends, they'll slag us and make us feel worse. If they are true friends, they will yet help you through your hard time.
If you feel lonely, remember you aren't. You have someone to talk to. The people on this forum are here if you need to talk. I'm here if you need to talk. Your not alone.
Sorry if I rambled on a bit there. I hope this is helpful
