It may not look like it, but this is an inactive page.
My work has been too influenced by the Swedish region Nedre Kärr, Bohuslän.
I have an extensive blog to document and elaborate on the happenings there.
Ive left the images on the subject here to move on to a different place.

For strength and better understanding of depression.
Depression isnt a sign of weakness, its because youve been strong for too long.


:heart:


Depression is humiliating.

It turns intelligent wellfunctioning people into zombies who cant wash a dish or change their bedsheets.  It affects the ability to think clearly, to feel anything, to ascribe value to your life. It scoops out your normal healthy ability to cope with bad days and bad news, and replaces it with an unrecognizable sludge that finds no pleasure, no delight, no point in anything outside of bed.

Depression is humiliating.

You alienate your friends because you cannot comport yourself socially, you live in moderate squalor because you have no energy to stand up, let alone take out the garbage. You have no perspective, no emotional reserves, no faith that it will get better. So you feel guilty and ashamed of your inability to deal with life like a regular human being, which exacerbates the depression and isolation.

Depression is humiliating.

If youve never been depressed, thank your lucky star and back off the people who can hardly make eyecontact with the grocery store cashier. Noone on Earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life. Its not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. Its an incapacity to function. At all.

Depression is humiliating.

Noone chooses it. Noone deserves it. It runs in families. It ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to make a dentists appointment, to pay bills, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when youre exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself.

Depression is real.

Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the Woods. They may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. 

Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged. ,
