How was your weekend?
Today's topic is "Battling Depression".
“Depression weighs you down like a rock in a river. You don't stand a chance. You can fight and pray and hope you have the strength to swim, but sometimes, you have to let yourself sink. Because you'll never know true happiness until someone or something pulls you back out of that river--and you'll never believe it until you realize it was you, yourself who saved you.”―Alysha Speer
Depression is a mood disorder. When you deal with depression or in a depressive episode you are sad and have a loss of interest in doing things. You tend to get in this mood where everything you would typically do doesn't interest you. You stay in bed all day and don't move, not even to go to the bathroom. You lose track of time, days, weeks. You try your hardest to shake out of it but you can't. You want to but your body is literally doing the opposite. You are trying everything in your power to not feel the way you do but you can't. Your friends and family members don't know what to do. You feel as if you are going down a black hole and cannot get out. The air starts to get thicker and your breath starts to get short. Now you are gasping for air but your heart is racing too and now your anxiety has kicked in too. You are trying to fight it off but you can't so you just lay there, you just sit there, feeling all the things at once not able to know what to do or how to handle it.

You can always reach out. People may not know what to do but there are times that all you need is just their presence and knowing that once you do feel like talking they are there to listen to you.
