Depression, and other mental health conditions are real, physical conditions which often get overlooked, ignored, teased or just played-down. Anyone can have them. It's not a sign of weakness or something just to sneeze at.

Lots of people, unfortunately, are driven to suicide. Two famous names that come to mind are Robin Williams and Chester Bennington, (but lots of unknown, but just as important and just as depressed people take their own lives every day). I've felt suicidal myself. I went through a really dark time I didn't see myself getting through. I've no idea how, but I did. It took me to take on a different perspective of things that were dragging me down.

And yes, Com's stories really did help. It would be an exaggeration to say that GFD saved my life, but not much of one. One of the things that got me to look at things differently, was when Dion was showing Justin all the strangers passing them by, on the pier, that they were all battling their own demons, just like Justin. Despite how they all looked 'normal' on the surface.

Here's a meme I saw earlier that I liked.
