My psychology teacher showed us this picture in class and spent a good 10 minutes talking about how depression is a disorder, a mental disease, not a choice, etc. I respect him so much for that.
i feel like entire parts of my brain dont work, they’ve been numb for years
when i’m in a depressive episode I lose my short-term memory completely, my reactions to situations change drastically because I don’t have the capacity to deal with stress in productive way, etc. It definitely feels like a “parts of my brain are misfiring or just plain shutting down” kind of situation. It’s hard to explain to people who don’t “get” depression - no, I’m not just sad, I’m not even just suicidal, my entire brain and the way I think and function are seriously compromised here.
