I’m in a relationship with depression and it f@cking sucks

If you’re new to the neighborhood, you might be interested to know that I like to speak very openly about mental health. I’m a firm believer in the there’s nothing to be ashamed of approach. 

Over the years I’ve spoken very candidly about our Autism journey and every other thing that we’ve found in our life path. 

When it comes to myself, I’m no exception. I’ve been warring with depression since my early teens and I’m not ashamed to speak to my experience. 

Now that we’ve been introduced, let’s get down to business. 



Depression is kicking my ass right now. I’m taking my meds, speaking to a psychologist and I’m generally a positive person but right now it just doesn’t matter.

Rob, you will get through it. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. I’m new to your blog, so I do not know what has been said about mental illness, but I look at is any other condition. If someone has diabetes, they take meds. High blood pressure? Meds. And it’s accepted. For some reason there is a stigma attached to mental illness, even though it is the same as the others.

Thanks Heather. I was just reading your blog and my sides actually hurt from laughing. I had to stop and wait for my wife to come back into the room so I could read it out loud to her. I’ll be reading more. ☺
