According to, Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. This is correct but from somebody who suffers from depression, my definition is a little different.

Depression is:

  • Not washing your hair for days
  • Not wanting to socialise
  • Wanting to stay in bed
  • Lots and lots of crying
  • Feeling like you’re not good enough or worthless
  • Feeling like you’re existing but not living
  • Not wanting to do the things you normally enjoy
  • Losing or gaining weight
  • Just sitting in a dark room
  • Changes in use of social media( little or lots of use)
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Bad thoughts
  • Veryyyy tired
  • Not talking much or not at all
  • Feeling more lonely than usual
  • Craving affection
  • Anti-depressants
  • Procrastination
  • Feeling like no one cares
  • Can’t concentrate
  • Can’t make your own decisions
  • Listening to sad songs to make you even more sad
  • Feeling overly sad/depressed

Depression is real. It’s not just a phase and it shouldn’t be ignored. Talk to someone about how you are feeling. Depression is diagnosed after suffering from some of the symptoms above for two weeks or more. Your mental health is so important. Take care of it and take care of yourself. X
