Loopy, Lonely and Lost

Signs I’m starting to get depressed

Posted on: February 2, 2012

  • Everything is boring. I start a book, but it doesn’t interest me. I put music on, but it irritates me. I load up the internet and can’t think of a single website that will bring me a moment of enjoyment.
  • My head, neck and limbs hurt, I think from some stress I wasn’t even aware I had.
  • I go to bed just for something to do, but find it hard to sleep, so I spend long hours just lying there, wishing I was unconscious, and I get up in the morning completely unrested.
  • I look awful, but having a shower seems like an insurmountable challenge. Actually, most things seem like too much effort. I just cannot be bothered.
  • I don’t really see the point in anything, and respond negatively to every attempt at conversation. People start saying I’m like Eeyore.
  • I move, speak and think slowly, and find it really hard to get warm.
  • I downright refuse, sometimes aggressively, to discuss the future, or acknowledge it exists.
  • I don’t really feel anything…just slightly irritated, a little unhappy, but mostly just blank.

Argh. I’m feeling shit.

You are very articulate and what you say does ring true for me and i’m sure for many others too.
So you do help us and, therefore, you do matter.

I’m depressed too

My name is Laura. I was once told that I have cyclothymia. This blog is mostly where I write about living as a person with extremes and instability of mood, and the history of a life that led to the development of those symptoms.

I complain a lot, I'm very repetitive, unreliable, and I tend to contradict myself.
