Would you feel guilty having prolonged rest after being diagnosed with depression?
Depression is as debilitating an illness as the worst virus you can imagine, yet it is often hidden and mis-understood- would you feel guilty and lazy resting and letting the world go by until you felt better?
I would think that rest is what you'd need when you suffer from depression, Then you'll get up when you feel like it. I'm sure it would be good to take the whole recovery slow so you really feel you're taking good care of yourself. Depression is real no matter what anyone says.
Thanks for commenting Lisa - rest is so necessary when you are depressed, but I found that the guilt that comes with that quite terrifying at times - cna people rest and not feel guilty about it i wonder?
It's difficult to avoid feeling guilty about resting, and slowing things down, I know. We can't worry though about what others think. If we need something for ourselves we should indulge. I wish more people understood depression.
I think any one likely would. Guilt can be a huge factor in depression so a depressed person likely will feel guilt as well.
