Yes, we all have our “down days” when we just don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. You know those days when you’d rather stick two fingers up the Karen at work who is adding further stress to the already mountain of things you have to pretend to care about? Or rather just a “jog on” gesture to the entire monetary system as a whole for single-handedly failing every damned soul on this planet? I mean, those are both great ideas that might leave you feeling like a mere fraction of the weight of it all lifted – after you laugh it off sardonically to your friends with a beer in hand. But when these thoughts plague you in the gloom of an empty apartment, it can feel more like being hit by a two-ton falling piano, rather than a fleeting humorous utterance.
My point is; when thoughts like these are really bringing you down and for extended periods of time you have to consider, “what is actually going on here? This is more than feeling a “bit low”’. You would be right to question yourself here. Depression is when those periods of feeling low drag on for longer than originally anticipated, or rather – accepted. It’s a bit like that lingering smell when you get a power cut and the freezer has been out for hours? Yeah, that’s it. That’s depression.
