“Sometimes it feels like a black hole, but sometimes it seems like I need to cry and scream and kick and shout. Sometimes I go quiet and lock myself in my room and sometimes I have to be doing something at all times of the day to distract myself.” Taken from mind.org
This quote from mind.org goes some way to describe my depression. Feeling sad, or down is not depression. Depression can mean just being in low spirits, continuously. It doesn’t stop you leading your life but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile. Trust me, at its most severe, depression is life-threatening.
