It can be quite a lonely world when you feel like the people around you just don't get it. I have been struggling with depression for most of my life and have been on medication regularly for about 10 of those years. My depression recently has seemed to get worse. This last year has definitely been a stressor...Covid, layoff, new PTSD symptoms, insomnia...the list continues. I'm sure many of you are familiar this struggle! Having severe depression alone is rough but along with everything going on in the world as of late it feels impossible leaving me feeling hopeless. The days now feel more like a chore to make sure I keep myse!f going.
Get up ✓ shower √ eat food√ walk dog√ It's exhausting to have to put in that much effort on a daily basis.
Depression sucks. I look forward to connecting with people.
