What does depression feel like to me: wanting to feel numb; to stop feeling the anguishing, agonizing emotion pain; nothing matters, nothing changes the hopelessness; being extremely tired, with out the energy [or desire] to even brush my teeth.
And yes, it feels like this a lot too.
Tell your story. What does depression feel like to you. Let people know they’re not alone. Join mental health advocate groups or organizations. Volunteer. See a doctor/contact a mental health organization/professional if you think you or a member of your family might have a mental health issue.
Give some one a hug.
Tell them they have value and worth.
Depression takes those words from your vocabulary.
