Za depresijo trpi vec kot 30 milijonov Evropejcev, vsaj polovica pa ne prejema nobene pomoči. Ker je bil tudi letošnji dan zdravja (7. april) namenjen boju proti depresiji, smo se odločili, da bomo objavili citate slavnih oseb, ki so živeli ali živijo z depresijo.

“I find myself getting into these patterns of behavior or thought – especially when I’m stuck up here [in my head]; I like to say that ‘this is like a bad neighborhood, and I should not go walking alone.'”
-Chester Bennington

“In our culture we are told that if we are beautiful, if we are skinny, if we are successful, famous, if we fit in, if everyone loves us, that we’ll be happy. But that’s not entirely true. I was suicidal. I couldn’t deal with it any more. I realized how lucky and privileged I was, but all I wanted to do was die. I felt so guilty because of that and hated myself because of that, and then it’s a cycle. I didn’t want to exist anymore. I wanted for each molecule of my body to disintegrate. I wanted to die.”
-Cara Delevigne

“I didn’t want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that’s really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you’re so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare.”
– Ned Vizzini, It’s Kind Of A Funny Story

“It felt like this was never going to end. The world wasn’t going to stop crashing down until there wa nothing left of me but dust.”
– Keary Taylor

“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”
– Seneca

“When no one listens to you, or you feel no one’s listening to you, all sorts of things start to happen. For instance you have so much pain inside yourself that you try and hurt yourself on the outside because you want help, but it’s the wrong help you’re asking for. People see it as crying wolf or attention-seeking, and they think because you’re in the media all the time you’ve got enough attention, inverted commas.”
– Princess Diana

“There comes a point where you no longer care if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel or not. You’re just sick of the tunnel.”
– Ranata Suzuki
