I wish #antidepressants actually got rid of #depression.

Don't get me wrong, they're very important. Life-saving even. But living with depression, even at a low-level, day after day can be be: So. Damn. Exhausting. 😏

#MentalHealth #Mentalillness
I've been living with mild/moderate #depression for ≈4 years.

For me this is 'remission'. And I'm genuinely grateful it's not worse.

Sometimes it's OK just to survive each day. But it's not OK when that becomes your life. When you feel 'a bit shit' ALL the time.

#MentalHealth
The elephant in the room, of course, is the environment.

Can I blame my poor #mentalhealth on my behaviours? My drugs? Or the conditions in which I work?

Is it 'natural' for academics to develop #anxiety & #depression given the constant stress & distain?
