beginning of the summer:
I'm going to work out every day! I'm going to improve my eating habits! I'm going to do something every day that will help me feel better about myself! I'm going to work on not being sad anymore! I'm going to make new friends and have a lot of fun!
end of July:
sleep until 3PM. blog. Eat everything in the house. Don't eat anything. Hate self. Dread school. Avoid all social plans and friends. Become a hermit.
Depression is mental illness in which a person experiences deep, unshakable sadness and diminished interest in nearly all activities. The term depression is also used to describe the temporary sadness, loneliness, or blues that everyone feels from time to time. In contrast to normal sadness, severe depression, also called major depression, can dramatically impair a person’s ability to function in social situations and at work. People with major depression often have feelings of despair, hopelessness, and worthlessness, as well as thoughts of committing suicide.
Anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or socioeconomic status, can suffer from depression. It is estimated that 19 million Americans suffer from depression every year. Depression is not a weakness or a character flaw, it is a true medical illness. The good news is that with proper treatment, 4 out of 5 patients will improve in time. Millions are being successfully treated. People who have depression are not just moody or having “the blues” for a few days. They have long periods of feeling very sad and lose interest in social and daily activities. Depression changes the way a person feels, thinks, and behaves.
If you have been diagnosed with depression you may be unsure of how to discuss it with your family, friends, and coworkers. It may make you uncomfortable at first, but learning how to better express your feelings will improve the success of your treatment.
The causes of depression are not always clear. It may be caused by an event or for no apparent reason at all. Genes may also play a role by not providing your brain with enough serotonin. The symptoms of depression may differ from person to person. Some symptoms may include a persistent sad mood, lack of pleasure in activities, change in sleep or eating habits, or a feeling of worthlessness.
it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
Some of us are inevitably going to end up being celebrities or politicians or people of actual public relevance and it is probs gonna be really easy to trace evidence of us drunk blogging and/or crying about television
