What is depression?
There have been many great articles written about depression and what it is, but I feel, depression is a different experience and explanation to everyone suffering from, living with and managing it.
Here a few of my own thoughts from today.
It’s taken all my time to crawl upstairs to start writing something and I know that sounds dramatic but I feel very heavy today. Every conversation is a finger twanging the string across my mind.
I just don’t fit anywhere.
I’m getting angry at my own frustration of not being able to participate normally in my own life.
I have moments of blinding light and days of deathly darkness.
Some days I don’t have faith in anything. The more I think the worse I feel everything is completely useless and pointless.
Depression is laying in a sofa carrying an elephant on your chest while a hypnotist is trying to put you asleep, a monkey is ruffling your hair and the universe is pulling your arms to the centre of the earth.
Like your head is separated from your body.
