365/196

On days like today, when it rains so hopelessly and desperately that I feel like it’s last summer again, I need a double dose of 5-HTP to stay sane, haha. These are my vitamins, minerals and fish oil capsules that keep me off of SSRI-s, à la Michael Ellsberg. Together with a low carb paleo-style diet they work quite decently. I wish people would stop speaking about soul and lack of willpower and weak personality where clinical depression is concerned. I wish people were just a bit more educated and a bit less stupid. Dealing with clinical depression is hard enough, there is really no need for treating us badly just because we are unlucky enough to have it.

  1. I can relate. We are a collective of photographers who either have, or have people close to us affected by depression, or other mental illness. If you would like to contribute photography please be in touch. You have an interesting perspective.
