People Misunderstand Depression for Sadness.

As a person with MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) I can tell you Depression is more than sadness. the best way I describe it. is a constant pounding of rain with grey sky’s. where the rain cuts like shards of glass to the skin. where you must run to get away from it. some days it hurts less. some days it hurts more. but, you’re always running from the painful storm. I am saddened by the loss of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. I can’t imagine the pain they must of felt. to take their own lives. I can’t imagine the pain. there families and friends feel. without them here. I hear people say “it’s selfish” I personally think. it’s more of… they are always in pain and they can’t suffer anymore. like when you see a dog dying and they put them to sleep. also, the pain of feeling they would make people happier without them here. the burden they feel of being around. that’s what I think. 

the reason. I am coming out with this story. is because, I too. suffer depression and anxiety. I was inspired to make this article. because, of Sara Bareilles’s depression story. I am in treatment for it. I am not ashamed of it. I have always been honest and outspoken. I never hold things back. no one should feel they can’t talk about it. the worst thing people say to me is “you’ll get better” or “you will get over it” it’s worthless to say things like that. show people you care. not tell them you care.

Augie’s is being evicted from Downtown Redlands. shameful!

Hey Everyone!

 

  I am making this blog post. because, I am a musician. I also know the owners. of this wonderful coffee shop in Downtown Redlands. such a staple of community and friendliness you won’t get in other places. I had my very first gig there. with my friend Brian. who was also in a band called “The Swiss Alps” he’s a brilliant,fantastic singer and guitar player. I miss him very much. back to the story. we became good friends, because, of Augie’s so. we got to thinking of jamming at Augie’s we did. it was magical. him on guitar and me on keyboard. it was so heartfelt and melodic sound. made such an amazing gig. we made $25 bucks that night! this is an iconic building with so much community. it would be shameful for this to become anything else. this building has brought all walks of life into this building. it’s how excellence is made in this building. Mr Holmes owner started at Augie’s it’s how Augie’s becomes the first and foremost of focus to make excellence in people to have bigger and better careers. some are becoming talented baristas. it starts at Augie’s. to the landlord. if you have a soul. any soul at all. please give them the option to own it. 

 

thanks, for reading.
