The book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, was written by Dr. John Gray.  It was published in the 1990’s, and is still popular today.

To be honest, I didn’t like the book.  I found it to be stereotypical and redundant.  The aspect that bothered me the most was the repetitiveness of each concept.  I felt like I was reading the same information in each chapter, with only a slight variation in wording.

Have you read this book?  What did you think about it?

Depression is Exhausting

Depression is exhausting.  You just feel tired:  mentally, emotionally, and physically.

  • Your brain works in slow motion.  Even simple task seem overwhelming and difficult.
  • You feel numb and nothing seems to make it better.  Trying to connect with other people feels impossible.  Everything around you looks bleak.  All the beauty seems to have disappeared from the world.
  • Your body literally hurts.  You end up with headaches, backaches, digestive issues, and a host of other aliments.

Depression is an extremely difficult disease.  If you have ever dealt with clinical depression then you are a stronger person than you may realize.
