55. Describe something that you have shared with others (or another person)
You should say:
What you shared
Who you shared it with
Why you shared it
And explain how you felt about sharing it
I would love to share my depression experience with a stranger.
I had depressed feelings for a number of years. I couldn’t find joy in anything, my energy level
was low and I was struggling to do basic chores like cleaning and washing. I found it incredible
when people would suggest things like getting exercise to make me happier. All I could think
was, I can’t drag myself out of bed to take a shower, and how the hell am I supposed to drag
myself to the gym?
A friend of mine realized what was happening, and after one particular outburst of tears and
misery, he suggested I went to the university counselor. Talking things through with someone
who is completely unbiased is a wonderful experience. Even when you think you have nothing
to talk about; they are good at getting you started. Unfortunately, there was a limited time
frame, and I felt those feelings creeping back. I finally went to my doctor, told them I had tried
counseling, and asked if medication was an option. He agreed. I know that anti-depressants are
a controversial topic, but they were truly life-changing. The first type did not help. The second
type was like opening a window. They did not make me happy. What they did do, however, is
give me the strength to start making myself happy. I stopped crying for no reason. I was able to
sleep soundly. The thoughts screaming around my head ground to a halt so I could focus, and I
started enjoying things again. I still have bad days, but they are days – not weeks, or months.
