I’m right there with you, friend. In recent weeks my depression has been extremely severe, and yet certain people who claim to love me have said it’s a ploy and claim that I’m being manipulative and seeking attention if I ask directly for help- and no, I have not been a drama queen about it. Luckily my husband doesn’t see it like that and got me to a doctor when I admitted to having thoughts of self-harm. The medical community is often compassionate but society as a whole is ignorant, unfortunately.
