You haven’t been feeling quite like yourself lately. Each day, you get up and meet your responsibilities, but it feels like it’s getting harder with each passing day. You’re not sleeping well, your appetite has changed, and it’s harder to concentrate. You’re tired of being tired and irritable all the time.
You think you might have depression.
Your family and friends have noticed the signs of depression, but you snap at them whenever they try to talk to you about it. Taking it out on them only makes you feel worse about yourself afterward. So you’ve been keeping to yourself and now you feel lonely, too. It feels like you can’t do anything right.
If only you could understand where these feelings of depression came from.
Nothing awful has happened to make you feel so sad and empty inside. It seems like one day you woke up seeing everything through one of those filters that dull colors, like in an old movie. In fact, nothing excites you anymore… not even the things you used to love. You wish you could hide under a rock so the world will leave you alone.
