I disagree it’s a lack of logic. I am quite level headed and rationale. I don’t play the part of negative self talk, I don’t feel sorry for myself, I experience just as much positive as negative within depression and I am thoroughly aware when I’m struggling. The majority of what I actually experience is physical symptoms. I’m not sure how to explain it. I’m not saying my mind is 100% in the right but I can separate what I think in my mind and feel in my body.

I believe it’s challenging for those who experience emotional wellness to fully understand what it means to feel emotionally unwell.

Also, I’d of been pissed if he said that to me. Ha. But I’m normally a bit on the fiery side.

Thanks for the feedback!
