“That mess ain’t real. People just use it as an excuse. Ain’t nothing wrong with them!”
I didn’t know any better when I daringly spoke the above words regarding depression. No one that I knew personally ever struggled with depression. Each time I heard anything about it was on television shows or in movies. I-honestly-did-not-think-that-depression-existed! My mind also convinced me that Anti-Depressants were purely placebos. They only “cured” depression because folks believed that they were being medicated.
In order for my repentance, (change of mind), with respect to depression to take place; my prayer of patience did not stop at the diagnosis and treatment of Thyroid Cancer. Welcome, to the story of Larie’s enlightenment of depression…
