Sometimes people say things that could be deemed hurtful. Sometimes they say them to people with Depression, and they think:
"It was just a joke"
“That wasn’t hurtful”
“Theres no way that can upset them”
“It’s not a big deal”
But those few words you could have held back, that slight bit more consideration you could have had, could have meant they were still here. People with illnesses like Depression NEED to be treated a little differently. We don’t need to be patronised or teated like children, we just need people to be more considerate. Everything hits us harder than it would a normal person. Don’t be the reason for an overdose or another open wound.
I can only speak from my experience, I know, but this is what I need and I doubt I am alone in this. Because when I was in the High Dependancy Uni after I nearly succeeded at suicide, it wasn’t just because of Depressed, it was also because of the pain caused by others. And every scar on my wrist is a memory of something hurtful that has been said to me.
I don’t want to be different, but I am. And I just wish the people closest to me would realise that, and just be a little more considerate.
Physical pain is my wake up call.
"Hating yourself is exhausting."
