Depression

March 3rd, 2008 at 10:29am

On Saturday night I decided to do something that I’ve been considering doing for a couple weeks. Beyond Blue have an interactive depression checklist on their website, it’s certainly not a definitive diagnosis, but it’s a useful utility. I, not surprisingly, scored a “7” on a scale where anything 5 or above is considered a likely indicator of depression.

The strangest thing about this is that I really don’t have anything to be depressed about, things are going quite well for me and, in theory at least, I should be happy…and sometimes I am, but more often than not I’m finding myself in a somewhat depressed state. I probably should see somebody about this, and eventually I suppose I will…for the moment I seem to be coping, and I think I’d feel rather silly if I went to see a medical professional about it.

This probably looks like a plea for sympathy, but it’s not. I’m really just writing this for my own benefit. It makes me feel better to write this down…I don’t quite know why it makes me feel better, but it does.

Now, time to write something I should have written months ago.

    I know what you mean, writing can be quite cathartic, can’t it – but if it ever ceases to get you out of a rut Samuel, send me an email and I will give you the details of a good “depression man” in Canberra.
