I read a lot of posts here where people feel hopeless and helpless. I feel for you. And I too feel that at times.
Recently I was amazed when I discovered that depression runs rampant with athletes (incidentally I’m not athletic at all). But I discovered that Michael Phelps (the USA Olympic swimmer with the most gold medals) has suffered terrible bouts of depression. Even suicidal thoughts. He has become quite an advocate for mental health and depression. I really like what he has to say and I can relate to so much of what he is sharing and he really cares.
You can watch him on YouTube by searching:
Michael Phelps on How He Learned to Overcome Suicidal Thoughts
Plus he’s made a lot more videos too. Hey it’s good to know there’s people out there advocating for our mental health.
