Depression Patient Leader #FollowFriday – December 22nd

We’re right in the thick of the holiday season. While many people are filled with holiday cheer, we understand that the holidays are not easy for everyone.

In light of this fact, we decided to feature depression Patient Leaders this week to give you three resources to help you get through the season. Take a look at these Patient Leaders, follow their channels and be sure to reach out if you’re struggling right now.

Finding ways to be proactive and explore my depression allows me to help others. When I write about it and speak about it, it gives me the opportunity to share what I’ve learned and offer people practical tools to help with their depression.”

“I decided to become a patient leader so that I can help others that may be struggling. I tell my story for those that are trying to find patience and understanding so that they will know that they are never alone in this fight.”

“I share my story because I know that for so many, having a mental health condition can feel incredibly isolating. It often feels that nobody else understands, and stigma can make it especially difficult to talk about. I want others who struggle to know that they’re not alone, and to have someone to reach out to who understands what they’re going through.”

    I have suffered from depression for a number of years. The holiday time is the worst of all. I cannot offer some sort of overall advice about how to avoid depression. What I can say is that one of the most important things I have learned is that depression will lift. It may take seemingly forever and it may not lift all together, but if we can hold out, we will eventually feel better. Feeling better may not last long and it may not be total, but it will get better.

    I for one work hard to get through the holidays each year. It takes effort and some years it does not work out. But oh when it does work out, That is the time the holidays seem to work out best.
