my mom doesn't understand depression
i've been diagnosed and medicated for a decade (well on and off meds)and she still doesn't REALLY get it
- •mom: you seem down today!!!!! stop
- •me: i'm depressed today
- •mom: why? today wasn't all bad.
- •me: depression
- •mom: but you're taking meds again shouldn't they work better than this?
- •me: we're having this conversation, so they're working.
- •me: sorry.
- •every time i feel depressed i feel like i fail her personally
