In an edition of Newsweek from a few weeks ago the cover story focuses on male depression. Moving away from the fact that it focuses on males, is the underlying theme that regular, everyday people really suffer from it often times without realizing it.
What's interesting about feeling depressed is that people on the outside can think everything is totally perfecto and yet you don't feel that way at all. I guess it is when the feeling persists or comes up every so often that you think you're slipping into different territory.
Sometimes when I see a balcony or an open window I wonder about jumping off. Now the reality is that I would probably never do it, I just think sometimes about what if I did it and what people's reactions would be if I wasn't around. Don't get me wrong, I think I'm a pretty normal guy and I would like to imagine that it's not really unusual to wonder about stuff like that.
Okay I stop writing there.
