Depression

What depression feels like for me:

It’s like I’m drowning, like a part of me wants to swim against the tides that are my thoughts, while another part of me just wants me to give in.

It’s knowing I need help but not being able to ask.

It’s like I’m at a stand-still while everyone around me carries on with their lives. Always moving forward. Never looking back to help me.

It’s constantly having a knot in my throat with my heart skipping beats, feeling the tears swelling in my eyes. I feel paralyzed.

I have no one to talk to because no one understands.

I want to be okay but I know I’m not.

I want to scream for help but I can’t.

I’m trapped within myself, watching my life go by.

Help me… please.
