What it’s like to live with depression

Depression is a disease. It’s an illness. It’s a parasite. It always has a grip on you matter how hard you try, sometimes it loosens its grip, but it’s still there regardless. It influences every decision, every action, every aspect of life, from the smallest of things like not having the motivation to brush your teeth to not showing up to class for an entire semester. It can affect your memory, attention, and intelligence. It can reduce the happiest, most optimistic person into an emotionless shell of their former selves. It can completely transform you in the worst way possible. It can ruin your life. It can end your life. It can ruin every relationship you have. It can ruin your appetite. It can ruin your sleep. It can ruin all your dreams and aspirations. It can ruin everything. It has ruined everything.
