Always Be Conscious Of Your Mental Health

I am very vocal about the discussion of mental illness. As a sufferer of depression for my entire adult life, I try to make other aware of their own mental health. I’m not ashamed of being clinically depressed and no one with any mental disorder should be. There are lots of symptoms and signs that point to depression. I’m not talking about bouts of sadness or unexpected crying. Depression sticks with you as a weight on your back — affecting your everyday life, emotions, sleep, eating and self-esteem. I’m a firm believer that we should get mental health checkups just like we do with physicals.

Now there is a stunning study that could explain why sufferers of depression die younger. If you are someone you know suffers from depression, please see a professional as it could affect more than just your mind.
