3 Things You Probably Shouldn’t Say To A Writer With Clinical Depression

depression-quotes

I am a writer who suffers from PTSD and clinical depression. Writing is major passion of mine. I love to tell stories and bring my imagination to life. However, having mental illness can make things difficult. When I’m in a depressed state I don’t want to move, forget about writing. Depression can be so debilitating that sometimes all I have energy for is to use the bathroom. As a writer, I’ve received all types of advice and constructive criticism about my work. The advice I appreciate the least, is how I should handle my depression in order to get work done. Usually, the conversation goes something like this:

Someone: How’s the writing coming?

Me: It sucks. I haven’t accomplished much lately. Unfortunately, I’ve been depressed

Someone: Don’t be depressed and lazy. Girl you got this!
