Talking about Depression and Anxiety
There is something I never talked about here and the fun fact is that those who read my blog regularly, probably will not believe me if I say that I suffered from depression and anxiety disorder some time ago. In fact I still suffer from depression anxiety disorder time by time today. People who read my blog regularly might think that it is hard to believe as there is a lot of happiness going into some of my posts, pretty much inspiration for new articles and anyway there are so many photos I took, which make it even harder to believe.
Taking photos outside? There was a time when it was not possible, because I constantly suffered from panic attacks when I went outside. It is rather so that I started with photography later and used this activity as a kind of therapy. Yes, you can say that I planned it in some way to break through this horrible anxiety disease and it´s accompanying effect of a depression. But this all is just a small sidenote to those who might find it hard to believe that I had to experience this illness.
Some might also think that it is brave to talk about this kind of diseases but I begun to talk about it years ago. I started to talk about it in the family and in the narrow circle of friends. It helped me a lot as I noticed a lot of appreciation and to my surprise I did even find out that some acquaintances did experience a similar problem. I was surprised how widespread this mental illness is. So, talking about it here is for me nothing I would call brave, it is after learning about the disease my duty as I probably can give some tips in my upcoming articles to people who suffer or suffered from the same disease.
While I usually only talk about it with the narrow family and my narrow friends, I can talk about it here as my private blog domain gives me some kind of anonymity anyway. But my main desire to talk about it here is as I said, that I do believe that I can give those some good advice in upcoming articles, for those who are at the beginning stage of the illness. You notice in my words that I am headed in the right direction to be healthy or at least now tolerable diseased. Yes, overall I feel again pretty lucky and healthy compared to the time years ago.
