‘Cheer up, might never happen’

Really? Is that really, honestly the best advice you can give to someone with depression? What a loss you are to the medical profession, if only I thought of that. It’s like telling someone with a broken leg to walk it off, I mean for fucks sake.

‘Do you want to talk about it?’

Sure, get a coffee this could take a while. My life is shit, I see nothing positive in the immediate future and I want to walk in front a lorry on a VERY busy road. Glad you asked now?

Ok, I’m being facetious. Talking is good therapy, hearing yourself talk about what you are feeling highlights the issues that internalising doesn’t. I often stop in mid-rant after my mind has kicked in and thought of a solution.

I know you probably have the best of intentions, but really, there is absol-fucking-lutely nothing ANYONE can say at these moments that will make me plaster on a fake smile and appear I’m actually happier than I look it now.
