Things You’re Doing Because Of Your Depression And People Don’t Realize It


Depression has now been affecting a lot of people and while we are fighting with it and opening about the mental illnesses and health issues it is equally important to have an open conversation to foster understanding and empathy for those who may be struggling with it. So this woman Sarah Schuster who is the mental health editor at The Mighty decided to find out how depression manifests itself in ways other people can’t see.

“While most people imagine depression equals ‘really sad,’ unless you’ve experienced depression yourself, you might not know it goes so much deeper than that,” Sarah writes. “Depression expresses itself in many different ways, some more obvious than others. While some people have a hard time getting out of bed, others might get to work just fine — it’s different for everyone.”

She posted a question on The Mighty Facebook page and asked the community members to answer it. Sarad posted “What’s something people don’t realize you’re doing because you live with depression?” And the answers by people were really eye-opening. We surely don’t realize the things depression does to people.
