I was diagnosed with sever depression about 6 years ago, but I more than likely have been suffering most of my life. I went through therapy and it really helped me and without medication, I was on the road to a better place. That is until about a year ago. I started feeling those blue feeling coming back strong and I was helpless to stop the slide. And please allow me to say this: UNTREATED DEPRESSION WILL KILL YOU!! Just like cancer or any terminal illness if left unattended. If you wanna die, then do nothing and I’ll bet you the world, this mental illness will kill you. It will kill you one way or the other. Please, PLEASE!! talk to someone or me, I’m no doctor, but I understand and we can get through it together. PLEASE!! And also know this, I suffer everyday single day just like everyone else and I know what you’re going through and what you’re feeling. Let’s beat this beast together.

These are the musings of a depression rewired brain. I’m not a writer nor have I studied writing, I’m simply trying to purge these feelings that have no other outlet. A very special person thought I had a talent for expressing my thoughts through verse, so this is my attempt at that. I’ll try to not be to blue, but depression takes no prisoners so please be patience with me as I get these thoughts out.

My goal in essences, is to help somebody at the same time helping myself. If only one person reads these writings of mine then I’m not happy with that. I need everybody to read these and help me to help you to help other, but that one person reading these is a step in the right direction.

    Peace Blacka, your words and thoughts here are absolutely beautiful.
    I am proud of you for taking direction in your life, no matter what cards you were dealt. Depression devours those who hide from it and deny it.
    You have truly chosen to stand and fight everyday.
    And for that, you are to be commended…everyday.
    If no one else tells you this, then shame on them.
    Keep letting the words and thoughts flow out of you…it will keep you from getting too full.

    ‎”There has never been a person like you before, there is nobody else like you right now in the whole world, and there will never be anybody like you. Just see how much
    respect God has paid to you.
    You are a masterpiece — unrepeatable, incomparable, utterly unique.” ~ Osho

    Namaste my Brother…Rashida

    Thank you for this blog. Depression is a HUGE issue in the black community especially for the XY Generation. I have suffered myself and I appreciate your honesty. I think Racism/White Supremacy plays a huge role but in seeking help no one ever wanted to address the systematic issues that lead to my depression such as poverty, trauma and living on a college where hate crimes were the norm because this would have meant dealing with systematic issues. Continue to press forward, I have found therapist of color and therapy from an African perspective helpful.

      Peace Sista and thank you for stopping by.

      You are very correct about depression in Black people, but it’s more like mental illness in Black people. We riddled with it all and nobody’s talking about it. Until that is addressed we can forgot about moving forward. I talk about it every chance I get and post my inner most feeling in an effort to get people to speak. I see it’s working.

      I’m truly glad you found some relief from that fiery demon that we call depression. You stand as an example that it can be done and it will be done.

      Again, thank you Sista for stopping by and seeing about me.
