I'm fed up of people who diagnose themselves with illnesses that they do not have. Like its a trend. Depression, anxiety, ptsd, bpd, bipolar, eating disorders and many many more.
For those who do know me, well enough they will know I suffer from Depression, Anxiety, PTSD. I work hard to maintain good mental health but sometimes I fall down, I need to recover before I bounce back.
Real Depression isn't glamourus; -It isn't perfectly stained eyeliner/mascara from crying. -It isn't people checking up on you all the time, believe me. -It isn't always sad and showing, sometimes the person can be smiling on the outside but screaming on the inside.
Real Depression isn't glamourus; -Its lying in bed for days unable to get up, not wanting to watch tv, game, move and getting bollocked for not being in work.
-Its not brushing your teeth until you are told to do so, they bleed and hurt, the water runs red. -Its not getting changed for days out of the same outfit that you've lay around in, the same pjs that now smell but you just can't get changed. -Its not brushing your hair for a week or longer, the knots are rather bad but you just don't have that strength. -Its not having a wash in as longas you can remember, not because you are lazy or want to smell but you just can't. -Its not eating, not because you feel bad about how you look but because at the moment you just don't have the ability to do do. -Its you house not feeling like home, whether it be a mess or tidy, its going untouched. -Its feeling like nothing helps, at all, whatever you do. Like the tablets don't work, the counselling makes you worse and all your friends do is tell you to cheer up. -Its feeling like you are annoying everyone if you talk to them, like you are lonely, like you have nobody.
The sad reality of it is, a lot of the time you do have nobody. People always say "call/message if you need me" but you can't so you won't. You don't hear off people for weeks/months/years at a time.
