I don’t want you to think I’m being rude, condescending or belittling you but have you thought about seeing someone? I’ve had to deal with depression to. I had a really terrible upbringing, I’ve abused drugs, alcohol, been in toxic friendships, relationships and it just came to a boiling point. I was exactly the way you were, I simply did not give a fuck anymore. I lost interest in everything. I did nothing but lay in bed, cry, feel overwhelmingly sad, feel numb. And then I met the most amazing person in the world. I looked up to them and admired them so much. They had an amazing work ethic. Paid there bills on time. Had savings. Are incredibly intelligent. Worked out. They were just so full on life. And that’s what I wanted for myself. And I got help. I went to my GP. Cried my eyes out. Got referred to a counsellor. Cried again. Got medication. Cried even more. But it gets better. You cry less. You feel for the first time in forever actually awake. You start to feel more like you. And eventually like myself- you wean yourself off the medication and you need to see your counsellor less. It all takes time. And it is the longest most difficult thing you will have to do. But it gets better.
