(Català) Els psiquiatres em deien que amb medicació i fent teràpia podia portar una vida “normal” però no ho vaig aconseguir mai. Fins fa uns cinc anys.
I have never written a personal diary in my life. Until relatively recently, I kept everything about my mental health a secret. So why have I only now started to write about depression from my own experience?
Anyone who has experienced an episode of depression and even more, the major depression, knows that it often entails the loss of friends, family, affection, work, etc. In a social context where everything must be cool and good vibe, we are considered “Toxic People”.
Until a year and a half ago I had a more or less stable job, also a more or less stable life, and I had almost always been a person who fought, an enterprising person until the darkness took posses me.
My name is Carles and I am 36 years old. 6 months ago I was diagnosed with depression, even though I have felt a profound sadness for a long time. The problem, though, is that I do not know for how long.
I am 28 years old and I am a Catalan and Spanish teacher, although now I am unemployed. I have been diagnosed with endogenous depression since I was 18 years old
Working long hours depresses, according to a study published last year in the journal ‘PLoS ONE’. It was already known that working a lot produces psychological and sleep disorders, as well as loss of cognitive functions and anxiety, but to these things must also add to the depression.
