depression is....

Heavy... I know it's been said, but really it's like dragging around a bag of angry cats
Photophobic...everything is too bright. I walk around wearing sunglasses on cloudy days
Phonophobic... I speak so softly that others can't hear because I can't stand the sound of my own voice inside my head
Lonely...no one really understands.
And sometime those who should be helpful are unsure or even afraid of you
Heartbreaking... It only gets worse when you think about the dismay you are causing others
Nauseating
..food just doesn't sound fun
Frigid... I just can't get warm
Full of fear... What if I just can't pick myself up this time
