Another view of depression and PTSD

I’ve been watching, ahem, muting and fast forwarding TV political ads with skill and ease for the last few weeks…but even with my dedication to avoid the paid political BS, a guy named Jason Kander has slipped through a few times. He was running for Mayor of Kansas City and has a sweet little bio.

I was shocked to find out, while watching the news last night, that he is withdrawing from his mayoral campaign because of depression and PTSD….before he goes another step further in life, he’s going to do some therapy and work through his demons. I was very surprised because judging from his public and on air personna he’s a walking, talking, laughing, smiling, articulate man who realized the world was his oyster kinda guy.

NOPE! They are walking among us…and you can’t tell by looking, you can’t tell by listening….you can’t tell!

Be kind…you have no idea what your friends, your family, the people you pass just doing the daily life stuff are really enduring and feeling.

Until next time….
