Depression and Anxiety and Eating Disorder and PTSD Is…. (part one)

Depression and self-harm

What is depression? Well let me tell you it’s not being sad or crying a lot or even dressing in black. It’s feeling numb all at once, and feeling everything at once. If you don’t know what it’s like to feel numb, well let me tell you and explain it.

Imagine you getting hit with icy cold wind cutting through you and having overwhelming emotions coming at you so strong and hard. That’s what being numb feels like.

Depression is like falling in a deep dark hole with no one to help you but there is someone who can help you. It can be a friend or family or therapist.

Depression hurts everything, it affects your physical and emotional body. You get more tired and weak. You become more sad and your heart seems to break into pieces by one misunderstanding. It's like you are trapped in a repeating cycle of darkness and coldness.

It affects your mental mind as well, depression can cause eating disorders, anxiety, and schizophrenia.

A lot of people don’t know but there are many types of depression like Major Depression, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder,

depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Psychotic Depression, Peripartum (Postpartum) Depression, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and 'Situational' Depression. These are just a few kinds of

What is self-harm well it’s not just cutting or burning or even just doing it because you want to. It starts out as an urge to get released from emotional pain then you actually do it. The physical pain distracts you from the emotional pain for a short turn of time.

Okay still doesn’t make sense why someone would do that well. Think of a balloon filled with hot air and there is a tiny hole releasing that air.

Your body is the balloon and the bottled emotions and thoughts are the air. Finally self-harm is the hole in the balloon. When you do self-harm it releases the emotions and thoughts for a short term of time, then it repeats because the release doesn’t last forever.

Thanks for reading part one there is more coming soon. I hope this helps you understand more about depression and self-harm. Tell me in the comments how to make it better or if you disagree with something.
