The WORST Thing About Depression is …


Pic of the day - Not a Happy Musical

There is a fantastic, passionate, profoundly honest, deeply wrenching effort going on RIGHT NOW to try to take the stigma out of depression. What I’m talking about is the movement gathering under the hashtag #TheWorstPartOfDepressionIs. People are telling their stories, and the stories of those they love, with and without names, but always with bald-faced honesty. They describe the ways in which expectations, interactions, judgments, sensations, and experiences serve to compound what is already a paralyzing destructive illness. Here are just a few of these amazing tweets.

* EXPECTATIONS

* INTERACTIONS

* JUDGMENTS

* SENSATIONS

* EXPERIENCES

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

  1. Hi there – great article! But in your intro paragraph you ID the hashtag incorrectly as #TheWorstThingAboutDepressionIs. In fact it is “TheWorstPartOfDepressionIs. I added that to my tweet of your blog page so folks would have the advantage of the hashtag.
