Living With Depression

When you are suffering from a major depressive episode:

  • Your body feels weighted down.  Even simple tasks, like getting dressed, take an enormous effert.
  • Everything in life seems pointless.  Each day is just a drudgery.
  • There is an overwhelming exhaustion that cannot be cured, no matter how much you sleep you are still tired.
  • You try to remember this is only a relapse.  You try to maintain hope, because without it there would be no reason to live.
  • You want to cry out for help, but that would take to much energy.  Instead, you just curl up on the bed and suffer in silence.

  1. I love someone who is living with depression/anxiety & some days, I almost lose my sense of self. It can be hard on the other side of it, but I won’t even claim to know just how hard it is for her. Peace to you.
