Depression Sucks

So I haven’t made any posts in nearly a month and the reason behind that is I couldn’t write. I had topics I wanted to write about but I literally couldn’t pick up a pen and write anything. At one point it got so bad that I couldn’t even log into my WordPress account.

Actually I’m making this sound more dramatic than it really was. Basically I was a bit depressed at the start of the month. Not in a ‘I want to kill myself’ way, more like ‘crying all the time over the inevitability of my own death’ kind of way. And because of this I really didn’t want to write or make videos.

I’ve been trying to work out what brought on this little bout of depression mainly because I would very much like for it to not happen again. For the first time in a while I had actually been enjoying what I was doing with my life and suddenly I couldn’t do anything without wanting to cry. And wanting to cry all the time really isn’t fun.

Fortunately I am feeling much better now and I want to reassure everyone that I will go see a doctor if it ever happens again.

So yeah *shakes fist* scumbag brain.

  1. Great post. I’ve been there too and appreciate you sharing this – that is very brave! On a related note, I found work by Allie Brosh of the Hyperbole and a Half blog to be such a great depiction of depression. It’s funny, sad and hopeful at the same time and I found it very relatable and uplifting. Have you seen her work, particularly those posts? It got some press for how well-done it was. You can view her entries on her depression at bit.ly/1lJzN4o (her first post on depression) and then her update on bit.ly/1uyyoi2. Think you’d like them!

    1. I actually got Allie Brosh’s book for Christmas. Its a good book and a very good depiction of depression but I’ve never found that I felt the same way Allie did while depressed. I really hate sitting around doing nothing all day and I know thats one of the things that can send me into a funk. I’m not actually going to call it depression as my doctor thinks it could possibly be seasonal affective disorder and not depression. But I have found that when feeling down I actually get more done than normal as I try to distract myself. I’m sure her posts have helped some people but they really didn’t help me.

      1. Your way of handling it and keeping busy makes sense and sounds like a good way to combat those feelings…glad your doctor was able to discern the difference in your case and said it’s more likely SAD. So many jump to depression only….anyway, I enjoyed this post and am liking your blog overall as I explore it. Keep up the great work!
