The true weight of depression
Depression removes all of your interest in what you used to love, you gain no enjoyment from anything, this makes you feel sad, as you remember the time when you could enjoy stuff
Music just makes you reflect on life, making you feel worse
You feel that any food is wasted on you, or you eat too much, because you don't care about appearance
You can laugh but, something is missing, laughing doesn't make you feel good
You tend to sleep inconsistently, in fact I'm writing this now-- at 4:00am, I'll probably wake up at 3:00pm, another day wasted
You don't feel like talking
You have no energy to do anything
You are often alone, wondering the meaning of life
You feel insignificant
The worst part of depression in my opinion is not knowing what caused it and not knowing if you will get better
If someone tells you that they have depression, you must take it seriously, they really need your help
People do care about you, no matter what you think
There is hope, for an entire week, I enjoyed everything I used to, I couldn't stop smiling, it was the best feeling in the world, and after feeling that, I know it is possible to kick depression and live life
And If you have depression, I hope that you will try to get better, its not a case of not getting better, you just have to try
Person 1: Hi, How are you?
Person 2: I'm... okay, you?
Person 1: I'm good, but I can't tell that you're not, is something up?
Person 2: Well recently... I've been suffering from depression...
Person 1: ah, ok it sounded like something awful happened, don't worry it will pass
Person 1: We all have bad days
Person 2: *leaves chat, feeling like no one cares, and that no one understands them*
Depression is not something people can just snap out of, it holds on to someone tightly and is difficult to break free from
When talking to someone with major depression, you should treat it as if they were terminally ill, its often not too different if they are without hope
