Anxiety and Depression

2142899459“There’s a hundred-pound blanket covering my body.”

Getting out of bed feels almost impossible. But staying in doesn’t mean the sweet reprieve of sleep. Sleep barely comes.

Your friends ask you why you’re so sad all the time. Or worse, “What’s wrong with you?” And the thing is, you can’t put it into words. It’s hard to describe.

And when they say, “Cheer up!” or “Don’t be sad,” it makes it worse. It’s not a choice. You can’t just decide to feel better. If you could, you would’ve done it by now.

But they just don’t get it.

Everything’s off inside. You don’t know if you’re hungry, and your guts aren’t working right.

Your joints hurt, but it’s not like you’ve been working out. That would be impossible right now.

It’s not enough that you feel hollow and slow. Now you’re worried about all the other things breaking down inside. But you move like freshly poured concrete, and finding a solution is like climbing a “fourteener.”

The world is against you, or at least it seems that way. To-do lists keep getting longer. Nothing works the way it’s supposed to. And it’s a miracle you survived the idiots on the highway again today.

While at the weekly team meeting at work, your chest feels like a ten-thousand-pound elephant is sitting on it. Soon, it’ll be your turn to speak, and you can barely catch a breath. The audience will probably notice you’re sweating, too.

You hate being put in these positions and wish you could escape to a desolate island.
