Depression

Postby its.jess » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:49 pm

I am a psychology student and I have just finished a unit on depression. I can relate to almost all the signs of depression I have to learn about. I am worthless, I intentionally distance myself from my family and friends as I am a burden, what’s the point I trying if I’m insignificant in the grand scheme of the world, I am never going to amount to anything, I don’t want to eat cause I don’t have the energy, I don’t care anymore, I am constantly tired and just recently I have started self harming again but worse than before (cutting). I cant remember when I dodjnt feel like this. But only recently I have started cutting, 2 weeks, but my mood has dropped so much family and friends have started to notice. Before I put on a front as I didn’t want them to think was different but now I don’t care. I also think of suicide but I don’t think I would ever go that far. Having to learn and revise this has only made me realise that the way I’m feeling isn’t ‘normal’. But as I revise it just makes me feel worse and want to cut deeper on my thighs. I think I do want help but my dad is very backwards thinking with mental health and I don’t know who to reach out to. Any advice? Am I depressed or what am I?

The point is that we are significant to ourselves and to the person standing next to us. You are here for them, not for billions of strangers you don’t know and will never meet.

Whats all the disappointment about?

Try to enjoy life rather than worry about the world

Enjoy the water you drink, food you eat, work you do, try to be relaxing and litttle playful ,

There is no need for effort to enjoy
