Questions and Answers

Here are some of the questions I have received this week and my responses to them

Why do people with depression push others away?
 There’s lots of reasons why I push people away, the main one being unless they’ve had depression themselves they can’t possibly understand how I’m feeling. When I’m in a depressed state everything’s a huge effort and therefore having company is the last thing I want. I also don’t want to inflict my negativity on to other people, I would much rather suffer in silence. Add to that, that I feel I’m a burden and don’t deserve peoples sympathy and I think I’ve answered your question.
