Depression is the feeling you may get when you’re in the middle of the street, and you feel so, very, alone, and you just don’t know which way is home. No, actually. Depression is something that goes much, much deeper than that. It is when you’re in that street, and you realize, that not only do you not know which way home is, but, in fact, you don’t have a home at all. Depression is a sinking feeling. It is the feeling of being broken. More than that, it is the feeling of being beyond repair.When you think that nobody cares, when you think, Damn. I just want to die. I don’t want to live anymore.
Depression is the moment of truth in those lies. In those moments of helplessness, you pick up a blade. In those moments, you’re willing to try anything- anything- to numb your emotional pain. That’s what I’m going to tell you about in this issue.
This issue is not about Depression, about how it feels. Instead, this issue is about beating depression. It’s about getting over it. Very recently, I started a campaign I. M. Possible. To show you that there are others who have gone through it, to show you, that you can. You can beat this. You can overcome this. It seems impossible, but isn’t that what it’s about? Making the impossible, possible. If you’re reading this, and if you think that you’re depressed, or you’re feeling low, then I’d like to tell you, I care. I care, and so do another two-hundred odd people. I want to know your story. I want to know what you’ve been through, and I want to help you. I want you to not pick up that blade this time. I want you to not call yourself ugly this time. I want you to not believe them when they call you a slut, this time. I want you to not think you’re worthless this time. I want you to know you’re precious. I want you to know you’re loved. I want you to believe. If not in yourself, then in me. If I could beat it, so can you. I. M. Possible. So are you.
