Depression is too real. I suffered with depression a few years ago and it was truly awful. It affects all aspects of your life and is one of the hardest things to get over in my opinion. Trying to keep yourself going when you cannot see any way of getting better is a black hole I think, which is why having people close to talk to is absolutely essential to getting better. It actually amazes me how hard it hits your body, not only emotionally but physically too. With me it effected my energy levels the most. No matter how well I ate I just could not find the energy to do anything at all and some days it was hard just to get out of bed. I cannot express enough how horrible depression is. If you are going through it now, I urge you to speak to your partner or your family, explain what is going on and get the support you need. It is very hard to overcome depression by yourself, if not too hard, so you need lots of support. It took me months to get over mine and luckily enough it has not come back again. One of the key ways to overcome it is to find the source of the problem and face it head on!
