Depression; sometimes we notice it right off the bat, someone locks themself in their room, they stop eating or they're not bathing. You notice, but they have ways to hide it from the world and they hide it so well. They go place, and yet they feel they are not included, but they are still there. What about the ones that laugh at everything, make fun of themselves and play it all off so no one will know they are depressed? The ones that battle with alcohol and / or narcotics, thinking "no one will see this", to cover their depression and keep the attention off what they are really wrestling with. What about the ones who change at home. They are unruly and just mad at life all the time?
Folks, we need to pay more attention to what we see. Most of the time they want help and just don't know how or where to get it or even ask for it. For both the ones who are depressed, and the ones that find them, we want to help you get the resources you need and talk with someone who has been on both sides of the storm. Our goal is to help as many as we can. You are welcome to message, email, chat, comment on a blog, or call the help number we have.
The mission we have had for many years and have been blessed to reach out and branch out more to help more. You do not have to be alone in this storm. We love you all and have many success stories to share with you over through these blogs. Love to strangers can change your life. I know it has changed mine. Love you all ......Rita
