Elizabeth Taylor - Depression and Waves of Change
7 days ago
Somebody is yelling at me, telling me i'm worthless, screaming negative curses over me....except they aren't doing it with words…and it’s not they it’s me….it’s just feelings that are just washing over me... feelings of worthlessness, discouragement, negativity and overwhelm that eventually paralyzes me. Sometimes I can fully know this and yet I cannot stop feeling this way. My intellect confirms these aren't true feelings but brain is tricking my body into believing it's true and that registers in my body as pain. This is depression. Today's episode, the focus is kinda on me. I've been struggling with depression. Forever, in fact. As a teen, I have clear memories of telling family that I was depressed. But I don't think I've ever had anyone help me validate this fact in a way that felt safe. As I grow older and wiser, I'm seeing the places where depression has infiltrated areas of my life and I no longer want it to reside. Part of kicking depression to the curb is shining a light on it. So today, I will give you a sensibility of how I feel personally attacked by depression. The symptoms of depression are unique to the individual. The cause of depression and it's treatment options are very layered. There's no way in the WORLD one episode could touch the options, the effects, or the opinions of this segment of mental health. I want to thank my guest Elizabeth Taylor for graciously sitting beside me as I vocalized some of my thoughts on being depressed and I'm also appreciative of her insights and encouragement. In future episodes, I look forward to diving deeper into the subject of depression with additional guests and more revelations as time proves to educate us on the nasty effect that depression can have on all of us. Thank you for listening with grace today as we scratch the surface on this important topic of mental health. Read more »
