Depression is something a lot of us take lightly. Mental health isn’t given as much importance in India as it should, and that needs to change. Recently, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone opened up about her battle with depression, which was, in a way, incredibly strong on her part because we need more people to come out and talk about the severity of it.
#1. It’s more than just ‘feeling blue’ can also mean not feeling anything at all
A depressed person is constantly feeling worthless, hopeless, anxious, angry, and sad- even to the level of being suicidal. It’s a lot deeper than feeling blue. And it affects more than 100 million people worldwide. If you’re depressed it’s assumed that you’re sad, but depression can also make you feel numb and/or emotionally exhausted. No matter what other people say, that’s still depression; if you feel emotionally numb or blank you should report it to your doctor or therapist. Source: gustavus.edu
