Depression is more than just a low mood, it’s more than a label, it’s more than laziness, it’s not someone’s personality.
Depression is the feeling of helplessness, the fighting to be optimistic, the steady humming in the frontal lobe, the sleep less nights accompanied by its neighbour; anxiety.
When does biological depression start? How does it start? What differentiates bipolar depression from bipolar depression? How do we judge others in moments they lose control, being passive aggressive fighting for help and and met with “Just get on with your life.”
Depression is an invisible sponge, a clouded perception coated in salt. Depression is the heart beating fast, the busyness of the world seeming either fast forward or in slow motion.
Depression is crying every night, depression is an abnormal function within the brain with neurons firing faster than the speed of light.
Depression is a source of pain one cannot describe unless experienced it in their darkest moments. It’s a brain illness; not an excuse.
No one would want to feel that way if they had a choice ♡
