The signs of depression are different from those of a flue for example. They are not immediately recognizable and creep up on you over a long period of time.
The word “depression” origins from the latin word “deprimere”. Which means something like “weigh down”, “depress”. And that is exactly what people feel when they suffer from depression. That is the feeling that I often feel.
Every two months I would like to write down the progresses I have or have not made under the category „Progressreport“.
But the past showed me that seeking for help was wayyy overdue. But even realizing this can be a long-winded process. The doctor just smiled at me and said: “You made the first step and it’s good that you say it. It takes a lot of courage.”
Depression pushed me down to the floor with all it’s weight.

Nevertheless my panic disorder got so bad that my life was not worth living anymore. I will take action. Even when it’s made with baby steps. What matters the most is that I make steps forward and not backwards.
Today I know that “I suffer from depression.”
