Depression feels like…….. (feedback)🎈

Depression is something many of us struggle with, but MANY of us don’t deal with. most times, depression to me feels like crying myself to sleep & not being able to feel my heartbeat. 

I asked twitter what depression feels like to them & the answers I got were so triggering, I decided to create a list & share some of the responses:

“Depression feels like_________.”

“Being stuck in a dark room, tripping over furniture as you feel the walls for the light switch–but never finding it.” @JustInNotOut

“Never being good enough. Everything is always your fault. Having 0 motivation. Drowning on dry land while everyone else is watching & ok.” @Niablooo
