I suffer from periodic depression, too, Gurpreet, and for many years, from clinical depression. I get it.

No one who matters will think you are a lunatic or even, odd. So many of us suffer with varying levels of depression and anxiety. I am fortunate that mine is now situational depression that dissipates when the situation is removed or betters. But, I know, the darker depression is in the wings waiting for its cue.

Write about your depression. I believe it will help you and those who read what you share. Often, when depressed, we live in shadows, unable to reach out to others.

Maybe, you would enjoy reading this piece I wrote about depression:
