Depression doesn’t always have to be feelings of sadness necessarily, sometimes you can just feel emotionally numb.
But I havent been sad like before. My depression last year felt like depression. The symptoms matched but now it is confusing I cant identify what has happened. Sometimes I even doubt if i really have mental illness or not
Sounds like you might want to talk to a doctor and see if there are antidepressants that might help you. It did help me!
I belong to a family where mental health isnt given importance, moreover my financial status is not that good. I dont feel comfortable talking about all this to anyone. Pls watch my latest post too ,thanks
@raj123 I’m so sorry. I know there are many resources out there, and more people willing to lend an ear and car than you know
I would recommend that you talk with your doctor. Depression can look different to different people. I don't know if that is what you are experiencing but I think it cannot hurt to talk with a doctor, therapist or psychiatrist about this. Have you spoken to your family about how much this really bothers you? I wonder if they knew how much you are suffering they may be open to getting you help? I read below that mental health isn't really talked about much in your family. There are places that offer low payments and places that take insurance plans. Please reach out to get the help you need.
As someone living in a period of pretty bad depression rn (although it always passes), I relate to a lot of this: I will sometimes check out completely, I feel like I am a period of my life where I am just waiting (this is partially because I am actually in a period of my life where I am waiting on something pretty big), but I've been feeling this way all year, and I can definitely say that depression DOES NOT have to=sadness.
