Depression is so much more than just sadness. It’s so much more than feeling blue. But, since depression is hardly ever talked about, people don’t realize that their struggle is way more than real.
Everybody experience being depressed, it’s a normal part of life. Good and bad things happen in life, it’s apart of the a human experience. Life still happens on life’s terms. There’s weddings, divorces, getting fired from your job, deaths, babies, and so much more. In our lifetime, we’re going to have both good times and bad times. Yet, if those feelings of depression last longer than 2 weeks, than this is more likely depression- the mood disorder.
1.) You’re Going To Feel Judged.
Mainly because some people don’t believe in depression. They treat it like it’s not real, or like it’s not a disease that can be severe. But it is, and i hate the fact that most people don’t understand it’s really real. You judging someone with depression is like you’re judging someone with cancer. Don’t let their misinformation and lack of education shame you into not getting help. Trust me, not everyone is misinformed.
2.) It Hurts Physically.
Muscle aches, joint pain and even stabbing feelings in your chest can all be symptoms of depression. Also, it can mean that it’s time to go see a dr, for more than a physical checkup.
3.) At Times, You’ll Think You Are Going Crazy.
Depression is a mood shifting mental disorder; including panic attacks uncontrollable thoughts and habits, social phobia, and many of other issues. Do remember, that you are not crazy. You’re sick and you can/will get better.
4.) Everything Literally Gets On Your Nerves.
Everything gets on your nerves.
Others getting on your nerves, you’re getting on your nerves. This post might be getting on your nerves. Being irritated and aggravated is apart of depression. Yes, it’s a stressor!
5.) Everyday Chores Feel Devastating/Overwhelming.
Something as simple as making a ham and cheese sandwich feels like to much for a meal, now you’re all worked up about it and now you’re crying.
6.) You Don’t Know (can’t tell) If It’s The Depression Talking.
You don’t know If it’s your thoughts, or your depression thoughts. It can be very confusing, telling the difference between the chemical trickery thoughts, or if it’s the way things really is, is actually really really hard! Especially, without help. But truly and honestly, once you’ve overcome the dissimilarity, you’re very much on your way to feeling better.
7.) You Are Going To Feel Numb.
Many people connect depression or sadness with the illness, but honestly, sometimes, depression is feeling nothing at all. If you’re feeling exhausted or shut off emotionally that could be a warning sign, that it’s time to talk to your someone, or a doctor.
8.) Your Mirror Will Become Your Enemy.
(Haha) A little humor from this gif, to make one you (or all of you) laugh or smile. I hope i did.
Depression and low self esteem goes together well. You start to hate the way you look. You hate to even look in the mirror. When depression makes you feel horrible about the way you look, it’s just better or feels better to look the other way.
9.) Most Of Your Friends Will Disappear, Just To Make That Very Clear.
In certain situations, you will see who’s real and who’s fake.
Wanna know who’s your real, your true friends are? Hard times, tough times, and struggle itself, lets you know who’s real and who’s fake. Who’s there and who’s a snake. Who’s got your back or who’ll stab it. Be glad that, and think about this specific struggle as one of your best blessings that lets you cut off the fake people. Real life situations will expose, who’s your true friends and who’s your fake friends.
If you’re short on rent or your mortgage, or if your child need pampers, and you call around asking your friends will, that will expose who’s real and who’s fake.
10.) Depression Is Very Very Boring.
Depression is a constant state of boredom. Life is not meant to be one dimensional, but struggling with depression can mean a never ending of boredom, that you can only relieve for the time being. Then it’s back to being boring still. Boringsville. It’s back to sitting down, just looking around.
