#DayofLight – I’m Still Here! — 26 Comments

  1. My husband suffers from severe depression. He struggles through it but has learned he is not alone. It is so important to bring it to the light.

  2. Knowing people who’ve suffered from depression, I’m so happy that there’s been more of a focus on awareness lately.

  3. I really enjoyed participating in this chat on yesterday. Thank you for participating.

  4. I think that depression is a disease to often is hidden. Thank you for raising awareness about this.

  5. I think it is so important to talk about this stuff. It makes it less scary!

  6. Depression is so serious – it is so good that you are posting about depression and how it is not the end.

  7. I just found out recently that I was battling depression and I’m not on anti-depressants that seem to be helping. I’m also going through therapy and I have to say that I’m glad that I got help when I needed it.

  8. It’s nice that you offered a resource link here. My daughter has a close friend that I think might have depression. Because she’s a teen her parents mark it off as theatrics. I hope they’re right and I’m wrong.

  9. This will help so many people. It’s great that you’re sharing this and raising awareness.

  10. My husband battles with depression in the winter months. It’s so important to get it treated. I know this from personal experience.

  11. I’ve never had to battle true depression, but I do know others who have. It’s so important to raise awareness.

  12. Thank you for sharing, Janeane! I think some people just need to know that it’s OKAY to seek help!

  13. So good to see this disease getting more awareness. It so awful that people suffer alone with it.

  14. Love that this issue is getting more awareness! In Canada we had a #letstalk day that raised over 8 Million dollar for mental illness. The more talking we do the less stigma will be attached to this issue!

  15. There are so many sad stories from those who feel completely alone, isolated in the world , apart from the “normal” . I know because i’m one of them. I have my good days and my bad days and when i’m having a bad day I reach out to those that love me because I know they will be there for me. This is definitely a great way of bringing awareness to those who sadly do not have that support.

  16. Depression is a terrible thing to battle. I have a friend who battles this daily and it’s hard feeling like we can’t help.

  17. So many people with mental illnesses and depression nowadays, it’s nice to be more aware and help people in need.

  18. Getting the word out what depression is and what it looks like is so important. Thank you.

  19. This is such a good thing. I battled depression for a long time and to the point that I did want to harm myself. It can be so much more dangerous than people realize. Thank you for this post and your efforts.

  20. I agree it can be treated .. but how can we help those as loved one who are in need? Do we show extra love or do we show just enough to not smother the person. It would be great if I could get some feedback on this

  21. You are completely right. All I ever hear are the sad, tragic stories of what can happen to people suffering from depression. There is a better way to share/learn about depression with a focus on the positive instead!
