My Story.

Have you ever been so sad it was debilitating? I have. The difference between this and depression is you feel this way everyday.

I have been dealing with depression for a few months. There are days where I don’t want to get out of bed. I don’t want to eat or get dressed. I just want to lay in bed all day with Netflix and cry. Sometimes there’s a reason for this; like something bad happened or I’m so anxious that I fall into a depression. Other days, there is no reason. I just feel sad and hopeless for no reason.

I have been learning how to cope with depression through classes at Sheppard Pratt and through some self help books that are extremely inspiring.

  1. Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
  2. Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis
  3. You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

I have so enjoyed reading these. They have inspired me to change my life. They really focus on following your passion. I am fulfilling that by writing this blog, volunteering in the community, and working on my Masters in Counseling.

I work through my days with depression by trying to get up and do something. Somedays, just brushing my teeth is a struggle. But, it’s a struggle that helps me to refocus my mind. Refocusing your mind on a task, any healthy task, will help to relieve the harsh reality of depression.

I hope this post helps you; in knowing that you are not alone. It feel like it but I am here and fighting this mental illness with you!
