Last weekend I got struck by some virus. Some say it was the flu. I'm still not sure. All I know is that it knocked my body out of balance - and it seems also, my mind.
Being someone who has a lifelong history of mental health challenge, I can safely say I'm not suffering from depression, and I'm not depressed. Although I "feel" depressed, I'm not depressed. Thanks to my life experience, I have the wisdom of knowing what is, and what isn't depression (...an important topic for another day).
But today, I wanted to share with you one thing that you must do first, to help you feel better. And no, it's nothing that you've heard before. I'm not going to tell you to go talk to someone, eat some vegetables or go and exercise. Yes, those things are important, but for many people its actually a step too far.
