people who have depression, what was the first sign that let you know that you have depression?

Ed ecco le risposte:

As a kid, I didn’t think like a kid. It’s as if you already knew how the world worked and how harsh it was.

Lack of hygiene for most people

Probably the fact i eat one meal a day and i just feel tired all the time

I started to feel numb and detached. Lack of movitation

Everything becomes exhausting/pointless. Like literally sometimes basic human contact can be so draining I will cry over the thought of an event as trivial a birthday party, or be unable to go into the office because acting ok seems like an impossible feat. Basic hygiene seems both tiring and meaningless.

When I notice myself self-isolating/neglecting basic hygiene due to feeing too exhausted/defeatist to literally function, I know I need to ask for help, and I try to ask right away despite my brain saying I’m being a squeaky wheel.

The trick (for me anyways) is to force myself to ask for help right away, NO MATTER WHAT my piece of shit brain tells me. If I wait too long, I will self-sabotage and refuse to accept help, to the point where I will even say the most hurtful things I can think of to drive the “helper” away. I have literally bitten someone for trying to force me to drink some broth, and I have to live with that humiliation.

Despite all the therapy, I can’t stop my self-sabotaging actions and I can’t seem to make any real headway in my treatment. All I’ve learned is that when depressed, don’t trust your own self and just do what you know you need, especially when you don’t think you need it.

Much love
