Hey, I didn’t realise before posting that it’s World Mental Health Day today, dedicated to the theme of depression. Life is full of funny coincidences.

I met so many trolls and idiots during the past year who all claimed that clinical depression doesn’t exist or is only an imaginative excuse for people who want to live their life easier and without taking any responsibility, and we, who suffer from it just simply have a weak personality without any willpower (or, better, we are all egoists who don’t want to get better) (because we feel good being depressed) that I’m extremely thankful seeing that, outside in the big world, still do such people exist who own some common sense.

Thank you, WHO.

Meet my new phone. I switched my old one off in October last year, when depression moved in into my life, and lived almost nine months without having one. And it was good. I didn’t miss being connected to the people I was connected to before. I lived outside of time and society. I wasn’t happy, because if you are dealing with clinical depression, you are rarely happy (I’m putting it nicely. Actually, if you are dealing with clinical depression, you feel like a tiny bit of sh*t. Later on you don’t feel anything anymore. It’s even worse). But I learnt a lot through being depressed, even if it isn’t worth it. Feeling bad and watching helplessly as your life is being wrecked, is never worth it. But, well, at least I can proudly call myself The Person Who Lived Without A Phone For Nine Months. I’m quite unique with it, I guess, at least here in Europe. Even my mother has one :o)

I also didn’t open my real life email account since October. I still need some more time to be able to do it and face all the people and problems I left back or the ones that are still to come. Let’s hope next Christmas won’t pass without me reading my mails, haha.
