I'm not sure what percentage of people suffer from true- non situational depression. A lot? And we all deal with it differently. But my shell has been cracking for months and I feel I and closing in on a macaroni necklace making and no shoelaces kind of vacation. #depression
I posted this photo on Instagram 2 nights ago.
I guess if you haven't spent time in a mental hospital then you don't get my macaroni necklace joke. But really- no joke. Some of my best crafts have been made in mental hospitals. And, they really do take away your shoelaces. I am NOT crafty enough to attempt to kill myself with shoe strings. Other people maybe, but not myself. (insert laugh)
How do you explain depression to people that have never experienced it? Like real, raw, walk out into the woods and never come back type of depression. Jason will ask, "What's wrong?" and often time there is no reason.
The (well one of) definition of depression is:
feelings of severe despondency and dejection
So true. And lacking affect. Wanting to make a deep dark cave for yourself and it doesnt even matter if the cave is filled with bugs because nothing much matters.
