Dealing With Depression, Sharing The Pain
By: Skinner J.Tyler
The feeling of being sick, feeling lost and utterly sad from thinking and overthinking; then suddenly you panic. Breath you keep thinking, try to catch your breath and sit down. I breath in and out, barely keeping up with my own breathing rhythm and fearing for the worst. What is happening; I think to myself?
Am I gonna pass out? Is this it? Am I dying? I have to stop thinking about stuff like that, as I try to catch my breath again. The racing thoughts, the heavy burdens one must carry and suffer with is painful. The worry and anxiety from all the fear of what’s coming next.
I finally catch my breath and begin to relax, remaining calm. The thoughts racing in my head and no understanding of why I would be panicking since I live a peaceful life, I do mediation and go for daily walks. This illness has no limits sometimes and knows no boundaries it seems.
I walk towards the bedroom, a little afaird as to what just happened. I never experienced such panic in my life (even though I’ve had many things in my past that would have made sense) and this sudden overwhelming experience changed my life. I had to find out what caused such a problem and why did this happen out of no where.
Too much TV, too much tiktok or Facebook you might say but I don’t have a Facebook account anymore, I barely watch TV and well, tiktok is a escape but I wouldn’t use it for more than thirty minutes a day. It can cause one to become a zombie, flicking through more and more entertaining videos, increasing the endorphins more and more with the sensation of stimulation.
There are many today who suffer from anxiety, depression and mental illness. The fear going on in the world doesn’t help with the news blasting bad news in your ear that half the time doesn’t even come close to the reality of the topic they reported on.
Please; I rather read news on WordPress where I can read what real people have to say about topics of interest. The true reporters today are not on the television but behind the scenes, speaking the truth using observation and decent sense. The fact is we come together more by expanding our lives and endeavors; whether it is sad, bad or good; sharing with each other can bring us closer together.

Being able to comment and communicate with the writer and contributing to the topic is quite interesting. I enjoy WordPress and not just the building but for it’s unique artists, writers and contributors all over this world. It is quite an amazing thing when we can share our thoughts and words with each other without being bias, judgemental or bitter. If you don’t like something; then don’t read it or better yet, as the saying goes; “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. I know it’s a old saying but I tend to enjoy using old sayings.
