About Depression

Things I had not known about:

  • the constant dull stomachache
  • the alternating diarrhoea and constipation
  • feeling cold all the time
  • the unbearable emotional pain
  • the blank numbness as your brain shuts itself down to avoid the pain, the emotional equivalent of watching paint dry
  • feeling terrible and being completely unable to remember why
  • being unable to remember anything. what day is it? what did I have for lunch? did I have lunch?
  • somehow still being able to function just well enough to avoid suspicion
  • random joint pains
  • constantly vaguely feeling like throwing up

Things I know about and hold on to:

  • it gets better
