THE STORY:

HOW CAN I MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND??!!

Think of the saddest moment you have ever felt.  Now imagine feeling that way every single waking moment of your life.   With each breath, with every thought in your mind you are consumed.  Every morning that you wake, you lay there, contemplating to get up or not. Your thoughts and feelings manifested into physical pain.  Plagued with an unrelenting state of anticipation

Can you conceive ever feeling this way? Probably not, however;  too people suffering  with the debilitating condition of depression this is not imaginary.

Depression is one of the most treatable of diseases, yet suicide holds the highest mortality rate for those under 35 years of age.

Life is Priceless.  The loss of David V Price is unacceptable, and to many unconceivable because there is a lack of understanding and knowledge of depression. This loss is one life lost too many. This is a loss that may have been prevented if people understood and were more aware.

Support research of depression and suicide prevention.  We can’t afford to lose. Life is Priceless.

Awareness is Key:
In order to help raise awareness of the debilitating conditions of depression and suicide, I will be riding in the TD 5Boro Bike race for the Life is Priceless Foundation.

'Depression' is not a bad word.
Unfortunately it seems there is a stigma attached to talking about depression and suicide. To the lay person, in regards to not experiencing depression or not knowing (or had known) someone suffering, depression and mental illness, this stigma needs to be removed.
To this lay person, who may never understand, the severity of these conditions need to be acknowledged and appreciated, as these are serious conditions and should not be swept aside.
It is not tabu to talk about depression!

I can say with 100% confidence the consequence of this ignorance can be catastrophic.

Those who are plagued by the debilitating conditions of depression and mental illness, regardless of its causality or severity, are suffering every second of their existence. To those who suffer, you also need to be aware that it is okay to talk about your depression, thoughts and feelings.

Please show your support by contributing to my fundraising effort in order to cause a positive domino affect in regards to raising awareness about Depression and Suicide.

I thank you ever so much for your support.
Pass it on.

Kindest Regards,
Chelsey (LB)
