I'd love to hear people's descriptions of their own depression in one sentence?
Holding out because there are no other options available to me - I am a prisoner of my rapidly deteriorating body, my warped mind, and the authoritarian society that has remorselessly condemned me to lead a “life” in this defective meat vessel from which I'm granted no alleviation of the physical & mental suffering that inherently accompanies my inhabitation of it.
A suspended state of grief for the life I had, the life I have, the life I could have had - grief for who I have become and what could have been had my life been filled with love, nurturing and stability rather than abuse, neglect and chaos.
I’m a pathetic, soulless manchild who would rather die than expend a drop of effort into anything that will benefit my well-being because my own self is my cruelest abuser and he deserves every bit of suffering he gets; I hate him so much that I just have to kill him and he’s probably thinking the same.
