What is depression like?

It’s like drowning, except you can see everyone around you breathing. 

It makes you selfish, it’s very hard to think of other people when you’re wrapped in a prickly blanket of unexplained, unwanted emotions. 

Some days you will feel sad without knowing why. Like you lost something very precious. But forgot what it was. Or like you miss someone you’ve never met. 

Sometimes it makes you shut down & not talk to anyone for days. You will cry just because. 

Depression is hard. Stay strong. We can beat depression through the grace of God!

  1. You are absolutely right AshKaay. You can defeat your struggles through the Grace of God.

    Lean on God to fill the void when you dip down into the depths of depression. Let his warmth raise the temperature in the coldness of life. Let his love shine the way in the darkness you feel.

    Let him make you whole and you will find you will never have room for depression again.

  2. It is a good description. I’m undergoing electro-convulsive, or “shock therapy,” right now. It helps. ANYTHING to help reduce having to deal with depression. Worst thing ever. Hugs to you, not to be too forward.
