coming to terms with “it”

My newest bud, thestranger, is struggling with depression, especially the stigma attached. Acceptance is different for everybody. We have to decide how open to be with others about our challenges. In my experience, or rather observation, if you have anything to protect then being especially open probably isn’t a good idea. Ignorance is still pervasive and some assholes love labeling people as week or damaged. Any thoughts? Share them here or shoot over and say hi to the new guy.

    I’ve had mixed results sharing issues in my life, usually bad and a bit devastating. I’ve found myself being turned into the bad guy, or having people outright not believing me. Ignorance is bliss. I’ve found it safer to open up to people after I’m more than sure that I’ll be accepted or that they’ve been through similar things and will identify and understand. Safety first. Thanks again for the introductions

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.

Cool blog posts I've discovered. It's a sort of greatest hits collection.
