What Do You Wish Your Friends Understood About Your Depression?

Because their support means more to you than they could ever know.

When you have depression, maintaining friendships can be difficult.

Especially if they don't understand your illness.

Maybe they hold a common misconception you'd like to dispel.

“you don’t look depressed though” oh yeah sorry i forgot to bring my literal dark cloud with me today

Or maybe there's a small way in which they could be supportive of you.

Whatever it is you wish your friends understood about your depression, we want to know. Share your response below and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post.
