My Mind, the Enemy...

Over the years I've been dealing with depression. It's very strange to those who don't experience it themselves.  Usually people think you've got to be depressed to have depression.  Mine hits me, at any time.  Things in my life could be going smoothly & I'll suddenly start seeing flashes of suicidal thoughts. As I've become older, they're getting easier to ignore.  I just ride them out like I deal with the mood swings of PMS.  I've come to terms with how I can deal with this, I won't take medication, I don't need it. However,t can be annoying to try to explain to others why you're feeling the way you feel, even though everything is going fine, outside of your mind.
