Anxiety & Depression

 

“I know everyone sees me as being loud, confident and opinionated but I suffer from depression. These traits are my coping strategy. If we haven’t spoken for ages doesn’t mean I don’t care, it means I’m not coping. I don’t like to ask for help as I don’t like to burden my friends and family.

“Having depression and anxiety is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive. Its wanting friends but scared of socialising. It’s wanting to be alone but not wanting to be lonely. It’s caring about everything then caring about nothing. Its feeling everything at once then feeling paralysingly numb.”

-Kathryn Rice Ne Brazer.
