Depression is sad

It is sad to see someone that was once happy now being sad all the time and feeling like they don't belong.

I feel like I am dead. I'm always cold. I go through the motions of the living- breathing, smiling, speaking. But the only thing I feel is emptiness. I am a college student and I go to my classes. I don't study but I get good grades. Procrastination consumes me. I don't retain anything. I just go through the motions of life - without feeling. I think this is depression. But I try not to think about it too much. Days keep passing and I keep moving forward even though I am not mentally present. But I know I will get better :)

I always get so angry when I hear someone talk about why "depressed people should just stop being sad and smile". It doesn't work that way-- depression is an illness. This article helps people to understand what depression really is.

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
