Depression. You’ve all heard it or think you know someone with it and you might think you know what it is. You don’t know a thing about it tho, if you don’t have this mental illness you have no idea what it is. So let me tell you about my depression in my own words.
What is depression? Well, Depression is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities you’ve once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. My depression keeps me up at night till 4 or 6 am when I work at 9 am. I constantly feel like I want to die or just run away just so I’ll be happy again and everyone else too. I think if I just left people would be way happier. I constantly think of what if’s or I don’t think at all. I’m just here but not here. I feel everyday that I’ll never be enough for anyone. I literally force myself to get up every morning, to eat, to go out in public and just to be around people. I’m drowning but not even around water.
Depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. And one in six people (16.6%) will experience depression at some time in their life. I try everyday to smile and be happy go lucky but it’s hard. I can do this!
Have a wonderful night guys and gals. Love you all!
