If you've ever suffered from depression (SUP!!!), you know it can be hard for people who haven't experienced it to understand what it's like. They might say things like: "Wait, so you can't come to my birthday party because you're.... 'too sad'???"
Or "just suck it up!" or "have you tried yoga????"
"YOGA"??? I CAN BARELY GET OUT OF BED.
According to the World Health Organization, 350 million people around the world suffer from depression, making it the #1 cause of disability by a long shot. But for how common it is, we don't talk about depression nearly enough and many people still don't "get it."
