This time of year is one of the busiest for school and for the club I am president of. There are a lot of things going on that are really exciting. There is only one problem. I am currently fighting off a bout of depression and I feel nothing. Zip, zero, nada. I’m not excited, nervous, scared of the impending doom that everything is going to fail.
I’m past the feeling of the crushing weight of the world and now am just at bleh. I think that the lack of feeling is one of the hardest things about depression for me. When i’m feeling upset or angry or sad, at least I feel something. It helps remind me that I am alive. When I’m feeling nothing, I have a harder time convincing myself to do my work and get out of bed. I can’t feel any motivation for anything.
Does anyone have any tricks they use for getting past this?
