Depression doesen't mean you're crazy

By dadazi | dadazi | 11 Dec 2020


I suffered from major depressive disorder (MDD) which turned into persistent depressive disorder (PDD), also known as dysthymia, and also panic attacks.
It's been 6 years now since I struggle with this illness.
Here are some symptoms:
Loss of interest or pleasure in your activities
Weight loss or gain
Trouble getting to sleep or feeling sleepy during the day
Feelings restless and agitated, or else very sluggish and slowed down physically or mentally
Being tired and without energy
Feeling worthless or guilty
Trouble concentrating or making decisions
Thoughts of suicide and many more.
Not to mention that all the different treatments lead to other problems like liver, kidneys, and many more.
I am not looking for pity or anything else.
I wanted to make a point.
You may ask yourself why?
To encourage everyone who is reading this article, if they know someone, a friend, relative, a buddy, doesn't matter what gender they are, to try and be supportive.
You don't have to be 24/7 for them but send a message, make a call, pay a visit(if you can).
If you are wondering why I am asking you to do this is because I feel it on my own skin.
I don't know if the mentality from my country is the same worldwide but here, depressed means you are crazy
and you became a pariah, an outcast and all will distance themself.
For me it was like a roller coaster, it went up and down and finally went only downhill.
First, my girlfriend broke up with me because she can see a relationship with a crazy person(her words).
One by one, all my friends left me and never sent me a text, not even for my birthday and
The same goes for all my relatives.
Lost my job and couldn't get one cause I just couldn't keep up and I won't go into that.
Now I am trying this blogging stuff, not to get rich but maybe buy myself a phone and maybe, maybe a laptop but this is just wishing mostly.
You can understand now why my brain is full of all kinds of questions.
I will stop here because even if I am Anonim, it isn't easy to write.
I truly hope, truly, that some of you will have learned something and do something about it.
And finally, you can understand now why I don't post every day or more often(this is the main reason).
I could go on for much, much longer, but I wanted to keep it short and at the same time, it ain't easy to write this.
Again, I am not looking for pity or anything else, just to open your eyes.
This is written just now because if I wait till tomorrow, I am not sure I will have the courage to post.
Thank you for your time.
I apologize if I said something wrong and if the post sounds sad.

You can like or dislike the post if you think so.

Have a good day or night and stay safe where ever you are.
