Just a simple tweet from someone who noticed I had been quiet yet it made such a big difference to me.
It is always nice to know people care about you, even more so when the depression is kicking your ass and you feel alone.
People who have never had depression can’t understand how hard it can be for people to contact others when we are in the midst of a down cycle. We feel like we are disturbing people you don’t want to hear our problems.
So it is always welcome when someone takes the time to reach out to you, even more so when they have noticed that your not around as much as usual.
I can hold my head up and say I DO contact people when I notice an absence or even a change in moods, how about you?
Are you one for contacting others or do you feel like you would be stepping into a minefield?
Would be interested to hear your views
Thanks Emmy, your tweet and subsequent messages meant a lot to me and helped improve my mood!
Five minutes of your time can mean so much to someone, and if we cannot spare five minutes for someone then it’s a terrible world we live in!
