Depression typed into Google Search is described as feelings of severe despondency and dejection. Then of course, many other links pop up to medically claimed websites and psychologists who have researched the “state of depression.” These medical professionals have listened to and monitored with tests what depression does to the body and mind. With those findings, they tell the world what to look for and what to do when you’re depressed.
How do I know this? Because I’m the one doing the Google searches and clicking on the links to these sites. I am medically diagnosed “depressed.” I know it’s sad. Being depressed is sad, right? Sometimes I have to ask myself that question on top of many others that I have. The questions I have are more about my diagnosis and
what I do about it. The more I visit psychiatrists and therapy sessions, the more I realize no one can really give me any answers. The thing is I’m not always sad. So am I depressed? Sometimes I want to get out of bed and look
forward to the day ahead, so am I still depressed? Or am I now bipolar?
