One of the dudes I watch is pretty depressed these days and given that this is Mental Health Week I urged him to talk to his doctor about it.
One of the biggest things that I look back on with my own problems with anxiety and depression was that for the most part I was in denial and fought tooth and nail to NOT go see a counselor, but you know what? When I finally manned up about it and got in there it was the best thing I ever did.
My anxiety was so bad last year I was developing agoraphobia. I would actually feel physically ill going outside, it's like that scene from A Clockwork Orange where Alex is writhing around in agony feeling physically ill. The seeds are mental but the body reacts to it. It was something that had been creeping up on me for a few years but it took getting diagnosed with hypertension to exacerbate, and so the last couple of years have been... hellish?
So anyway, I'm sure most of you are probably cracked for following me anyway, BUT if you feel like something is wrong but you don't know what or if you feel alone and have to fight something yourself you gotta remember to Bat-Slap your problems and seek help.
I mean, even Batman had Robin, right?
P.S. Don't forget, May 7th is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!
