Jacob’s story is brief and powerful as is the depression he discusses. I hope his sharing it helps further on his road to recovery. ~Alan Eisenberg
Sick for weeks and no answer, finally went to the doctor. A ten minute wait and the doctor walks in and whispers in my Mom’s ear. He said depression and that is what i had in 7th grade.
It was caused by three years of bullying. thoughts had crossed my mind of taking the easier route, but I said no and just tried to look to the better side of life. Depression is a horrible disease, People think that you are insane because you have it or you are a worse and it’s just in your head. I didn’t want to go back to the school so bad I made myself sick, literally.
No like sticking my finger down my throat. But just feared it so much that it made me sick. Finally I was able to switch out of my old school and go to a public school where i got out of my depression. But on some bad days it lurks in the distance ready to take over again.
