Can I just say depression isn’t feeling sad all the time.
It’s not showering for 3 days straight, knowing you have dishes to clean, work to do, people to talk to but not doing it, always feeling exhausted, never getting out of bed (then getting called lazy by people who don’t understand), not being able to sleep, having no motivation to do anything ever, hating every single part of yourself, recurring thoughts of ending your life, feeling guilty and worthless, no concentration whatsoever and memory? Ha that shit is gone.
So stop portraying depression as just feeling ‘sad’ or ‘down’ for a couple of days. Because there’s so much fucking more to it.
