Depression is very real

A lot of people don't know, but I suffer from clinical depression. I have more good days than bad, But the bad days feel unbearable. Logically I know that I have so many things to be happy and grateful for, but that doesn't make the sadness null and void. Sometimes  I feel really sad and I just want to stay in bed all day and cry, and some days I do. The pain can be paralyzing at times. The only thing  I can manage to tell myself is tomorrow will be better than today. That's not always true though. Sometimes I am in a funk for days at a time. Depression is very real and there are so many people who silently battle it. I personally don't let many people see that side of me, but it's there. One thing that I would like to give as advice from a person with depression to people who don't, Please don't tell us we have nothing to be depressed about. You may be right but we are anyway. Some times There is nothing in particular that I'm sad about. I'm just sad. So be considerate. You never know who is having a bad day.
