Depression is like cold turkey

Cold turkey is an expression used for when a person quits heroin, stop using the drug, and spend days trying to beat the addiction.

With depression, now is really hitting me. What can I do ? Nothing. I just have to suck it up. Just wait, with the heavy weight on my mind, until goes away.

Been long time since didnt feel so bad. I was doing prettt good this year. Feel devastated now.

And nothing helps. And the loneliness is too big. I almost can feel phisically shaking of the amount of stress I have in my mind.

Just know the only thing I can do is feel like nothing is happening, its overwhelming.

Loneliness strikes hard. Feel so alone.

I think you are on to somethin, ya know?... Depression can happen from that very "sudden" change of environment, change of situation, change in the way we interact, how we see each other... Very much the same as when withdrawing... The sudden change that sends us down the darkest of roads, lonliest of places... You arent alone on here. Someone, if not i, knows that very same road.... It could just be no-one has known the words for communicating it, but , we atleast have the place to potentially meet someone who shares it, here. You have been very brave to get this far - being able to communicate how you feel. And it could help others too.
