Some days are harder than others. You feel physically, mentally and emotionally overwhelmed, exhausted and under the weather. It’s as if the entire ocean is smothering you and you can’t breathe. Silent tears. Loud tears. Hurt. Sadness. Darkness.
The only thing you really want to do, is to curl up and disappear for a while.....
On those days, talk to your Depression talisman. Tell it how you feel. Off load. Even if you need to yell it at it, Depression won’t mind. It will sit, it will listen and it will understand. Because it has a bad day every day. And most importantly remember; you are not alone. Reach out.
Each 1.5-inch tall Depression figure is accompanied by two mini (.6 inch tall) Depressions. These are hand cast and painted from an original sculpt. There are only 6 sets available, selling for £20.00 each (about $26.00).
