“You tried. That’s a lot more than most people would do.”
if I could use words to describe how I feel, I would
Saying I’m sad is an understatement
I’m 26 but I don’t look it so hopefully these will make me look older😫
Working in the city means learning the ways to be tough
To say no
To be firm
To be calm
To be vigilant
To be flexible
To be patient
To be respectful
For someone who has never lived in the city, this is a new challenge.
Be careful of your bank account
Don’t buy anything you will regret 🤔
This article caught my eyes today.
The author suggested that there has been a lack of research on people who recover and thrive after depression.
“high functioning after depression” (HFAD)
Research often focuses on the negative impacts of depression, but if little is known about life after depression, how can we convince the public that there is hope?
If we know more about HFAD, we may have implications on those who thrive after other mental health disorders.
“It is part of the truth, which patients and the broader public are owed. It would be odd if an oncologist did not tell a cancer patient his or her chances of achieving lifetime remission. We submit that a depressed patient also deserves to know. The public deserves to know as well.”
It is difficult to know someone’s full story unless you follow them their whole life.
But if there is ever positivity after the negativity, it deserves to be shown. In fact, it should be studied in an equally scientific, comprehensive, and professional manner.
What happened after the depression?
How are they thriving?
